Game Info How To Play Downloads Comments


In Blumenmacht Ballerinas are joining a flowerpower pogo dance. You are in control of the Ballerina who takes the leading part. She is the Prima Ballerina.
To win a dance your Prima Ballerina has to throw flowers at the other Ballerinas until they are all happy. They try to do the same with your Prima Ballerina. But if they succeed and your Prima Ballerina is happy, you lost the dance.
During a dance you can always choose which Ballerina should take the leading part of the Prima Ballerina. Throw blossoms at the muses and they will spend your Prima Ballerina talents.

Some technical infos about Blumenmacht:

The game was programmed with C++. Microsoft Visual 2003 .NET was choosen as the development environment. I used OpenGL for graphics and SDL for input/sound. The graphics were created with GIMP 2. I developed Blumenmacht from bottom up over the last two years.
