I have done a very shallow review now, and have these comments so far:

- the namespace is polluted with general names like "DialogEditor",
"ItemEditor" and "croppy" which are all put into /usr/games; they should
be prefixed (e.g. with fdrpg-)
- my son has played the game for a while and it has segfaulted on him at
least three times so far; he is working around this problem by saving
the game frequently, just in case
- there is a general-purpose utility in this
package /usr/games/pngtoico.  first, it's in the wrong place (should
be /usr/bin) and second, it should be packaged separately.  it is
apparently from here: http://freshmeat.net/projects/pngtoico/

Otherwise, it looks like a very enjoyable game, and would be a
worthwhile addition to Debian.
