Ballerburg SDL Beta PND


Ballerburg is a game in which two castles seperated by a mountain take turns at shooting each other with their cannons in order to weaken their opponent and eventually force the enemy castle's king to surrender. Originally developed for the Atari by Eckhard Kruse in 1987 this has been remade using SDL and now recompiled to run on the Pandora. You can find information about the original at http://www.eckhardkr..._st/baller.html


The name of the game is German and could be interpreted as 'PewPew Castle'


Download: http://kuru.k-worx.n.../ballerburg.pnd


'F' toggles fullscreen


'Esc' opens the game's menu. Among other options you can set the game to a configurable AI instead of a human opponent, the latter being default setting.


Click on the elements of your castle to interact.
