It seems like we are getting quite a few old gems nowadays, although this is most likely using Dosbox it's still nice to be able to have sales for it counted for Linux. That goes a long way for future titles to be considered native if they see good sales from us.
This gem is from 1994 and was originally on MS-DOS of all things. It's another one that was before a time that I could appreciate games like it, so it's tempting to pick it up now.
