Extreme Tux Racer starts by default with a resolution width of 800 pixels. Exiting the game should restore your original resolution, but unfortunately it seems the game is crashing when you close, before it can re-resize your display

Then use this script to start the game. I didn't test it on multi-monitor configuration. There might be better way to get current resolution than parsing xrandr.
