What works

Using steam for the installation, everything works out of the box.

Upon each launch a small windows pops up asking for configuration or starting the game.

Achievements, Saving, even the steam overlay works.

What does not

The game really seems to suffer from its opengl-implementation. There are numerous questions on Deadalics Forums on performance-problems concerning windows 7 and 8 (apparently it runs better on older systems because some opengl extensions are being phased out).

The game is freezing from time to time (~every 5..10 minutes) for 1..3 minutes. With the steam overlay enabled this triggers more often and for a longer duration. Some people report better performance when "texture compression" is disabled.
