I found it in my distro's repository and checked it out.  I was going
through the various games, wondering why they weren't nicely
categorized into "lame" and "less lame".  I rather liked it, although
the UI could use some sprucing.  I think that of everything though.

Just yesterday I set it down after quite a bit of intensive playing. 
I enjoyed it, but found the difficulty curve too steep.  It got
rediculously difficult very fast and I was left with "how in the heck
is this possible?"  Even after really wildly outwitting a couple of
maps I was completely overwhelmed and dropped it out of frustration.

But I'll be looking into Linux gaming much more closely now that I've
got a new display on the way.. I never was much of a gamer, and I
really like the oldschool stuff so there should be a lot of games out
there for me to try.
