starting the game (with patch to wine source)
What does not
Playing, the game does not use the correct archive files for data retrieval, but instead looks in the filesystem for the level maps. Since it doesn't find them, the game stops and returns to the splash screen.
What was not tested
Since the data retrieval bug causes levels to be unavailable, the official rating is Garbage; fixing this one bug may cause the game to be upgraded all the way to silver/gold in one go.

The game can only be installed using Wine 1.1.34 or newer.
However it's recommended to use the latest Wine version to install it without doing anything.
To install the game on older versions you'll have to bypass the "Error 53" problem.
Use the patch from the following link: bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=24845
Then compile Wine and run the game.
