    Broken sword is broken. I guess you get what you pay for.

    All kidding aside, describe how it does not work. We need more info in order to help. Do you get any kind of error messages?

    What kind of file did you download? Was it a zip file, a deb file, a tarball?

    I got a tarball, and I extracted it, but I can't find any runnable files.

    Is there a readme file?

    I dont know about the Humble Bundle version, but it appears that that game normally requires ScummVM, an engine that you can install from the Ubuntu repositories.

    You can install it using the software centre.

    Click on the link that was emailed to you after buying the bundle - alternatively, log into your Humble Bundle account, then scroll down to All Bundles and click on the humble bundle number you want, in this case I think it is Humble Bundle for Android 4 - and then in the new page that will open click on the big red Download for Ubuntu button; that in turn will send you to a new page where you need to click on the game you want. After clicking the software centre will open automatically and it will give you the option to install the game.

    Hope that helps, somehow.
