Baladana is a new strategy game somewhat similar to chess, however more abstract and even more complex and dynamic. The biggest difference is that while in chess the way each playing piece can move is always the same, in Baladăna?, the way figures can move is dynamic, determined by their 'powers'. The configuration of these powers, which are represented by colored rings, is updated throughout the game - players can change the position of one ring as part of each move, placing up to 3 rings on any figure. When more rings of different colors are placed on a figure the powers combine and as the game progresses, you can gradually build up more and more powerful figures.
Play against another player, against the computer (with selectable level of expertise from 1 to 5) or over a network (LAN, Internet) against a remote player.
All the moves in each game are recorded and displayed in the Game History listing. You can undo, redo and redisplay moves; you can also display the game as it was after any specific move and show an animation of a part or the entire game.
Each game, whether it is in progress or already finished, can be saved in a file and later loaded again to be reviewed, finished or even re-played differently from a certain point in the game.
