The start up takes a long time.  For a second I was worried.

The 770's CPU is barely strong enough.  Sometimes the game lags.

The controls are not very good.  It is easy to press the select key and
shoot the bubble by accident.  It is also very very hard to press an
arrow key just once; it starts autorepeating too soon.  (This is a
problem with many applications; I wish there was a way to use
'xset r rate' on the 770).

Pengupop installed the menu item into "Extras" rather than "Games".  And
it is not available from the Extras repository.
