Zombo Buster Advance is a follow up to the studio previous game, Zombo Buster Rising. The rather cost effect game released back in 2016 with 90% Very Positive reviews. Which has support for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
Likewise, you would expect to have cross platform support. But the studio is putting the native Linux build on hold. Here’s what’s going on:

The game is made with Unity.
Our team is also keen to release Linux build. But there’s a serious issue between Steam API and Ubuntu.
Unfortunately, we have to hold back the Linux version. Until we figure out a proper/alternative solution.

Therefore, this is where things stand. However, since Zombo Buster Advance is developed in Unity 3D. This does allow the game to be played using Proton 5.0-9. At least until the dev’s figure out the Steam API issue.
