    Though it looks as if this game is well put together, I most likely will not buy it. I did like Arkanoid, but 15 years ago. I still may play it a little now and then, but LBreakout2, and other free versions will fill that void. It is nice they have a linux version, I just hope the development for the linux version did not cost a lot. I would hate to see them look at the sales of a linux version, and say that there is not market at all. There is a market, just not a wide market. Under linux, it would be hard to sell a game that is so much like others out there that are free. If you plan to release your games under linux, you need to make sure it would be a game that 1) fills a void, 2) so much more polished over other versions, or 3) Brand new, and highly anticipated (doom 3).

    Of course I do not know for sure, so my assumptions that this game may not sell well could very well be incorrect.

    What does everyone else think? Please don’t respond with the, “Shut up, If you don’t what it, don’t buy it” crap. I am looking for an actual well thought out comment.
