Hi, this is great. It raises my motivation to continue with xlogical.

I have some points:

a) audio
Ok, maybe I overreact when I threw all sounds away. I still suggest
that default wrapper script is:
xrandr -o 3
xlogical.bin audio.enabled=0
xrandr -o 0

b) missing hi-score file
The file /usr/local/var/xlogical/xlogical.scores is missing. (the
location is stupid, so change it too. This is some configuration time
parameter like datafolder.)
message: ERROR!  Could not open hi-score file.
(I think the whole hi-score/point system is useless and so 80's)

c) dependeries: libsdl-image-1.2-0
my package:
Depends: libsdl-1.2-0 (>= 1.2.9), libsdl-image-1.2-0 (>=1.2.3-r0)

your package:
Depends: libsdl-1.2-0 (>= 1.2.11), libc6 (>= 2.6.1),
libsdl-image-1.2-0 (>= 1.2.6), libsdl-mixer-1.2-0 (>= 1.2.6),
libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.2), libgcc1 (>= 4.1.2)

With fdom: opkg install libsdl-image-1.2-0
Package libsdl-image-1.2-0 (1.2.3-r0) installed in root is up to date.

And installing your package says:
* ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for xlogical:
         *  libsdl-image-1.2-0 (>= 1.2.6) *

With -force-depends it works, so you can decrease the needed
libsdl-image version.

d) title_text_2.bmp
Image title_text_2.bmp says "PRESS (ESC) TO START". You can press or
click anything to start, so here is same image without text:
(maybe someone wants write something to it?)

e) title_text_4.jpg
Startup screen is 640x497, but used window is (now) stardard 640x480,
so here is resized image:
(text are raised a little bit)

I'm planning to make some level selecting dialog (shows which levels
are passed and which are skipped). Or do we like that
