Version 0.5.0 for Windows

This will be coming shortly, but is not yet available.

Version 0.4.0 for Windows

Step 1. Click this line to download Babala installer, 468 KB

Step 2.

Babala relies on a greater freeware library, GTK+, for some of its routine functionality. GTK+ is a perfectly safe well-known toolkit that is often bundled with freeware (eg. GIMP, X-Chat, Gnapster etc.). We aren't permitted to bundle our game with GTK+ already 'embedded', because Babala is not yet open source. We are referring you to available freeware that is needed for Babala to operate. Obtain GTK+ from this Web address. Clicking the link opens the cited page in a new window and from there just click the big green Download button. After the transfer finishes, double-click the downloaded file to launch its install. Key Enter or click Next wherever appropriate to complete standard installation. Once installed, the GTK+ libraries only sit idle on your hard drive until called upon... they don't load automatically at system Startup, nor in any way burden your PC.

Step 3.

Double-click the Babala Install program that was downloaded in Step 1. Choose the language, accept the license agreement, proceed through the few obvious steps and you'll have the game ready to play, shown in your Start menu and on your Desktop. On some older systems you might need to maximize Babala's window (click the little square figure, top-right) on its very first launch, to make the bottom readouts visible from beneath the taskbar, arghh.
