The mother of artillery games is back: the famous 1980s Atari ST game "Ballerburg", now with online Multiplayer
Beat the castle at the other side of the mountain!
- Online Multiplayer - beat Ballerburg players from all over the world!
- Hotseat multiplayer on the same device
- Single player against 7 computer opponents in different skill levels and stlye
- Run your kingdoms economy wisely to gain valuable resources for your battle
- Graphics and Sound in retro style, as 25 ago on the Atari ST
Ballerburg proves that simple game concepts are also the best. Two castles, a mountain - and cannons. Beat the enemy kingdoms castle by hitting its well guarded king. For each cannon shoot, angle and amount of used gunpowder has to be adjusted wisely. Changing wind and the fact, that cannonballs and gunpowder are limited resources make the battle even more interesting. As the own inhabitants are paying taxes, this money can be used to rebuild cannons and walls or buy gunpowder, cannons and derricks. But don't tax them too much, otherwise your people might join your opponent.
Now, all those who have been addicted to Ballerburg decades ago can play the cult classic on their iPhones - without having to get their old Ataris from attic. And the feeling will be the same as back then: we tried to get as close to the original version by Eckard Kruse as possible, which means graphics, sound and gameplay - same as 30 years ago.
Ratings and Reviews
Everything about this game is exactly as it was on the Atari, for which it was one of the best games available. It is still great fun playing against the different virtual enemies and calculating trajectory, gun powder, and wind while defenses and finances.
The only thing I miss is being able to play in German. I enjoyed the king telling me: "Du sollst mehr Geld verdienen, Fördertürme bauen und den Gegner besiegen." Then I clicked the button: "Demütig zur Kenntnis genommen".
I was able to play for about 20 minutes and now the game keeps crashing. The game was no charge so I’m not worried about that. However, I will be deleting it. What I could play was enjoyable and challenging.
Many childhood memories rekindled by this app. Pity they had to translate it, though.
