a game by Marco Chiesi
Laser Balls is a funny deathmatch battle for up to four players, either controlled by the user or by the computer. You drive a bouncing coloured ball into a sort of arena, and you have to fight against other balls with your laser sword-gun. The game also provides a scripting engine, so you can write the behaviours of the computer enemies.
