AFAIK it's essentially a graphical frontend for installing/launching Windows games through Wine. I tried it once, but I didn't much care for it.

Also: I think you can give it its own submenu in the GNOME "Applications" menu...I did it by accident when I first tried it, so I don't know exactly how to do it, but I think it's possible.
