Installation and most aspects of the game: gameplay, graphics, music (with either FM synthesizer or general MIDI), control (with keyboard or joystick), reset, pause, restart, help.
What does not
1. Window managers can't decorate the game's window. (Tested with Kwin and Openbox) The option for this needs to be disabled in winecfg, or the game will have no title bar.
2. Trying to enter fullscreen mode crashes the game.
3. Uninstallation doesn't work.
4. Arrow buttons on the game selection and sound test screens are narrower than they should be.
The game initially runs way too fast, which is a bug in the game itself. A patch for this issue is available from Sega's website, and it works with this demo as well as the retail version.
