"So he spends all his time writing code for fancy graphics to set the game options and stuff, but couldn't find 5 minutes to write a help file?!?! All I could do was select some level options (meaningless unless I know what these options do) but as to how to actually START the game?... Who knows. Spacebar, enter key, mouse click... nope, they do nothing. I tried EVERY key on the keyboard... still nothing! So this was a total waste of time to download. Thanks for nothing Kenta. :("

"Don't waste your time installing this, because the developer obviously didn't spend much time testing and debugging this game. There are no instructions as to which keys to use to move, or how to configure the keys. There are no worms or whatever visible during "game play", you just see a mostly black screen with some numbers counting up, presumably a count of lives lost, and then it says "game over". Absolute rubbish! And not deserving to even be included in this software repository. It would be nice if there were some standards for functionality and usability to meet before software is allowed on here. Seems like anyone can just slap some bytes together and shove it up here, without it needing to be tested in any way. Linux Mint should do better! :("

"I was OK with this game at first, but as I got better at it I discovered that the game cheats: (1) When making quick moves to trap the computer controlled worms you crash unexpectedly even when 3 moves away from the other worm. (2) Sometimes when another worm eats a crystal, you crash and die instantly instead of moving a few steps until you hit something. (3)And most annoyingly, the computer worms appear to have the same limited number of lives, but if you try to force them to crash until they run out of lives they won't crash on their final life. When trapped in a dead end they just stop and wait on that spot until there is room to move again! So you can't win this game by progressively eliminating the other players until only you are left victorious. That's just taken all the fun out of it for me. No point playing anymore now that I've discovered this. :( It would also have been fairer if the computer controlled worms had similar reaction times and route planning abilities as a human player."

mintupdate
"Had trouble with my original update manager, so uninstalled it here so I could re-install it. The re-install attempt returned a list of errors of files it couldn't access. (no longer supported?)"

"Seems to be riddled with bugs, lacks rulers alongside scroll bars so you can see where you're about to place a point, placing a circle (centre,radius) keeps asking for centre for next circle - never asks for radius. Conclusion: utterly useless to me."

"Hate it! Hate it! Hate it!!! Came close to smashing my computer in utter frustration at not getting a simple task done. (Select part of image and move it sideways a bit.) I used GIMP (earlier version) successfully on my Windows Vista machine, but this version just doesn't do a simple task and is not intuitive. Developer deserves a swift kick to the gonads!"

"Doesn't work for me. Keeps complaining "device is mounted!", then if -f option is used, still complains "permission denied!". Why is everything in linux such a major pain in the ass to get right?"

"This "backup" software caused the deletion of about 89,000 files off my back up drive, without any explicit warning that it was going to delete so many files! Why would a back up utility delete ANY files at all? Crazy! I dumped it in favour of a simple terminal command: rsync -vaub --exclude=.* --modify-window=4 ~/SOURCE /TARGET"

"This game cheats. I got up to level 70 fairly quickly, then... no matter what or how long I tried, I could not complete level 70. Every time it looked like I might, the game would refuse to supply the colour I needed to get rid of some balls, so I could never win. That's not how to make a game fun! It's just bloody irritating!"

"This would have to be THE MOST ANNOYING game I've ever played. The way your penguin character moves in response to keyboard controls is just so irritating!!!! I uninstalled this within minutes!"

"Seems to work very well. I wish it had an option to match to a whole word only, so when you search for "DNA" it won't match to other things like "EDNA""
