The installer installs flawlessly, the game appears to run flawlessly. Was able to play through the first stage of evolution, then it crashed. Graphical glitches appear at the second stage (works only if I start from there, not continuing my first game from stage 1) No errors while changing settings whatsoever in the game
What does not
The game works with bugs and glitches, so what isn't working is the graphical rendering and something is happening when going from one stage to the next. It didn't do anything by lowering graphics or maximizing them, it still looked the same.
What was not tested
I tried stage 1 and 2, both worked okay but with issues. So I guess I haven't tried the other stages. At stage 2 it became unbearable to "watch" the game.
Like I said, the game runs and installs flawlessly without a problem, I haven't done anything to manipulate Wine with anything it just started on its own with standard configuration. But the game quits between stages and it glitches, unplayable on the whole but still works. So I'm giving it a bronze reward.
