Butsbal is a fast paced multiplayer shooter game inspired by pong. Play the four different game modes with or against friends in the local multiplayer or play against strangers in the online multiplayer. The clean and minimalist design puts the focus on the gameplay.

Players will carry up to 5 bullets and will receive a new bullet every 3 seconds or kill. Bullets fired by the players will travel at a constant velocity and will bounce against the borders. Which makes it a hectic but fun shooter. You always have to watch your back!


- 2 to 8 players local multiplayer
- Multiplayer up to 8 players
- 4 game modes: DM, TDM, CTF and Last Man Standing
- 8 different levels
- Xbox 360 controller supported

Your "Full TAR" isn't supposed to be twice the size of your Full EXE Installer.

TAR is the only major archive format that preserves all of the filesystem metadata on UNIXy OSes like Linux but, unlike ZIP files, it'll only get compressed if you ask for it. (Uploading bare .tar files is akin to uploading BMP files.)

The most popular compression for .tar files is GZip (same DEFLATE algorithm as .zip files). If your archive tool chooses the output format based on file extension, you can use .tgz. (.tar.gz also works but Desura may convert it to .tar.1.gz, which can confuse extraction tools)

If you're using the tar command directly in your scripts, you can trigger "detect desired compression from extension" by using `-a` or manually specify GZip compression with `-z`.

If you don't know how to change your tool, you can also use the `gzip --best Butsbal.tar` command to compress it afterwards (It'll rename the file for you), but then you'll have to manually rename ".tar.gz" to ".tgz" to avoid the risk of Desura mangling it.

Here's a size comparison for more concrete information:

56204800 (54M) Butsbal.tar
30651247 (30M) Butsbal.tgz
30112564 (29M) Butsbal_Setup.1.exe
29443747 (29M) Butsbal.tbz2
23457116 (23M) Butsbal.txz

.txz is .tar.xz and it clearly wins but users on some Distros may have to manually install the xz-utils package because splitting out 7-zip's LZMA2 compression into the xz tool is a relatively recent innovation. (Ubuntu does come with it by default though)
