Ballerburg is a castle combat game. Two players (which can be human or computer-controlled) try to destroy the opponent's castle with their cannons.
There are two ways to win the game: Either by directly hitting the opponents king with a cannonball, or by destroying enough of the opponents commodities so that the king capitulates automatically.
Beside the intuitive control of the game with the mouse cursor, there are a couple of shortcut keys, too:
show the settings dialog
toggle fullscreen mode
show high-score table
