I don't see why not, it's only a 2D game.

What do you expect though? Just remember that DirectX is closed source and WINE devs have had a hard time getting Windows stuff to work. It's pretty much a guessing game and why it's taken so long to get WINE where it is today.

Now, if you can get MS to hand over the source code for such things, all your games will work.
