After an update of the software, I discovered today that Steam did not crash any longer, so I decided to carry out a gaming experiment: I wanted to purchase one of the Linux games to see the playability factor on my desktop computer.
I found a cheap game that seemed fun: "Snuggle Truck," a little side scroller in which you drive a truck as fast as you can to a zoo, trying not to drop any animals as you go. The game was $5, so I chose it.
|The game in the Steam library (on Mageia 3 x64)|
The game started fine, cartoonish music playing an all. I liked the graphic quality and the responsiveness of the game. Driving the truck was fun, too. I am not a good player, but that is not the point.
These are some screen shots of my poor performance in the game's tutorial:
I must say that the experiment was successful; I'm happy with the service (and the game, of course!). My daughter will love playing "SnuggleTruck".
Steam, count me on your list of Linux customers.
