I agree on the game being fun! Go Play it! Don't forget to get more than 5 workers! You can install the game trough the Ubuntu software center or you can download it from

Amazing game. If you haven't played this go play it now. I really like it. My only problem is the difficulty. It's good at the beginning but after you get 5 or so work units it gets too easy, even on the hardest level.

Really, really great! Man, with little effort (linking a forum or mailing list to the homepage), this game could get a great community around it (people discussing, changing tips and tricks, strategies, etc). Keep up the good work!

It is a good game, but the .exe for windows has a virus(trojan horse).
Maybe you need to rebuild the libraries. I am running the source to play this game.

Very cool game. So simple, yet I've come back to play it quite a few times.

One of the best game in the site. Original concept mated with good excecution. I'd like to see the graphics improved though.

Very cool game, although it's a bit high on the CPU. Very addictive.
