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.
