I don't know much about Linux, but I think you will be able to run BlueStacks using Wine.

You would have to search it. Sorry.

Sean beat me to it.

Second bug:

If you try to use the donuts but do not have enough and it redirects you to the store you will be unable to go back to the game unless you close it & restart bluestacks or you hit the home button, and wait 1-3 mins for the app to close itself.

I went ahead and attempted to install it using Wine and this is as far as i can get

Looks like a no in this case but it was worth a shot anyway.


This is the best bet for running in Linux below is a tut to installing the Android SDK after that just grab the game.

I made it my challenge to get it running on Linux.

What i did.

Installing the below is only done once it's not as scary as it looks.

1)Run in Terminal
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jdk icedtea-7-plugin


2)Run this in Terminal
wget http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r21.1-linux.tgz



3)Run this in Terminal to extract the downloaded file
tar -xvzf android-sdk_r21.1-linux.tgz


4)then
cd android-sdk-linux/tools/


5) Then
./android


You should get the below click install far right

Once you get the message saying the SDK and AVD are updated

6) Go back into Terminal and run from home
gedit ~/.bashrc


Copy and paste the below into the file like so and save

7)

export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-linux/tools

export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools


[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Once this is done Restart Linux.

Now you have the SDK installed use terminal and put in
android avd
this will start the SDK you can make a launcher if you want.

Click New and use the settings i have

Click the new item and hit start

Once it loads up you should have a screen that looks like a phone (android sdk)
