So I had a quick play with this before getting frustrated at the first ladder
I tested the AppImage (without installation) on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. The game ran well, no noticeable issues.
It was in windowed mode for the percentage loading (very first) screen, then went to full-screen (from the GDevelop logo onwards).
When first accessing the Options menu, the two volume levels were down the bottom (lowest setting), even though music was playing on the menu screen. I set them to full. The next time I ran the game they were at full where I had set them.
The credits screen was blank, with just the cursor and Back button, nothing else...
Not sure if you want non-linux-specific feedback too, but just in case:
An option to skip the intro story would be nice (skip button or similar).
I didn't like the keys
I'm right-handed, so it felt weird using primarily my left hand for all moving, jumping, etc. (that's why I had trouble with the first ladder). Also, using the left mouse button to shoot seems odd, considering most other keys are on the left of the keyboard, and even the alternate shoot (firing in both directions at once) was 'f' whereas right mouse button might have made more sense... Having said that, I didn't progress very far so maybe there are more keys/functions learnt later on that would make this all make more sense. But either way, and option to change/customise the keys would be nice, or maybe support both 'a/d' and 'left/right' for movement (so players can choose which hand to use (same with other keys).
Hope that helps!
