Install Speed Dreams:

The PPA is not available for Ubuntu 13.10 so far. Here I use the Playdeb repository.

1. Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens run commands below to add the Playdeb repository:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb saucy-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

2. Get the key:

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

3. Check for updates and install the game:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y speed-dreams

The installing process will take a few minutes downloading the DEBs.
