Don't overlook Cetris and Papalot (alpha test), online games of our devise. But the main attraction...

Babala is a simple logical game with elements of move strategy. At the start of the contest, the enemy figures "Balabaks" are situated on the playing field. In fending them off, you'll have only limited moves and shots (or laying of mines) allowed during your each round, after which the enemy is permitted a measured advance. If Balabak reaches you, you're mugged, you lose. Enemy doesn't shoot.*
Your task is to survive and dispose of all Balabaks. To do this you must choose suitable movements or shots, and that won't be so easy. There may be obstacles and certain rigged perils, critically situated, or distant ammunition stores that have to be reached. You may have to shoot through a wall at Balabaks, and you have a limited numbers of shots. If you don't have enough munitions, then you must tempt the enemy into a trap. Length: 200 levels

Babala is the earnest product of individual creativity, pristine and given freely, without commercial consideration. The software is non-intrusive and doesn't contain any ads, spyware or viruses. Well, except of course for the fact that playing the game causes so much cerebral trauma that maggots eventually flesh out your entire skull cavity, heh-heh. Kindly submit your opinions and questions about the game, either to our forum, or send email to Thank you and.. enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions about Babala gameplay

What do I do now? Answer: key Ins or 0, or click the red arrow control. The game allows you only a handful of actions at a time, then you must signal advance of round, and let Balabak come.

What if I get stuck? If you just can't solve a level and want to move on, use Skip Level, from Game menu; it costs 50 pts. Perhaps do a "Save Game" first, so you can easily return to the trouble spot.
