Sun Blast Game Review (On Linux)

The makers of the game Sun Blast sent me a copy of their game for review, and I was very impressed.  It is integrated well within Linux and worked without any additional configuration.  Best of all, it has the ability to use a Wii remote for control (either one-handed or in two hands).  The motion control works very smoothly.

Before doing this review, I did not even know it was (easily) possible to connect a Wii remote to a computer, but I did it in only a few minutes.  All you need is a bluetooth adapter and a few software packages (all of which are already in the Ubuntu repository), namely wminput and lswm, both of which are primarily for testing purposes.  Connecting the Wii remote within the game is a simple detection process.
