Potentially Brilliant
Plays *very* fast with nice slick and colorful graphics on my RedHat 8.0 box.

Unfortunately, about 4 or 5 of the tracks are buggy as hell with asorted weird things happening during play - the most annoying of these being when you suddenly drop through apparently solid track and can't get back onto it. On the first level, Tux Tollway, I find that I drop through the track instantly, and continue to fall down, and down, and down.... meaning I can't play this track altogether.

So to recap, this is shaping up to be an awesome game - almost as good as Mario Kart itself, but at the moment, with the amount of buggy tracks included, it is essentially unplayable. I don't know whether these bugs are Redhat-centric, as the game seems to prefer a Mandrake distro, but for the multitude of RedHat users out there - treat this as a technology preview until the next version....
