    Supertux 2 is I feel a better version (higher resolution so you see more on screen; but more importantly you aren’t limited to moving forward only so you don’t get stuck on occasion because you failed to run!).

    for openSuSE

    sudo zypper install supertux2

    (( use apt-get instead of zypper if debian; yum if fedora etc… ))
    under recently upgraded openSuSE 13.1 (x86_64) – I got “development edition” ; but it read my prior 12.2 (i586) save file correctly.
