a great game if you're into having to think your way around a level, but you don't really like to think at all when it cames to play games, really fun, retro, arcadeish.
a must have!!!

My solution to get it work (Ubuntu 12.10): open AlterEgo.sh in gedit and "save as" it with line end setting "Unix/Linux".

I tried every thing that has been posted here, but it still doesn't work in my Ubuntu. I even tried to emulate it in Wine, still doesn't work :(
