 Conversion Notes
 Changes in game itself
- Make the "dead-monster-goo" green instead of red, to be more kid friendly.
- "is it blood? it's not! it is snot!"
- OLPC keymapping - gamepad keys for in-game play.
- Speed up fading in/out.
- Scaling support; Scale up graphics for the OLPC.
- Linear scaling done manually for sprites; slower but blocky and non-SGE.
- More command line options for OLPC integration;- volume, fullscreen, scaling etc.
 Sugar and XO integration
- Activity wrapping in Sugar (icon, launcher, etc)
- Include Ruby/SDL and libruby1.8.so.1.8 libs directly.
