BUDLR is a four player bomb blasting bonanza intended to be installed in a busy public place, projected on a wall. Innovative text message controls allows anybody to join in on the bomb blasting fun. Each of the four characters has an associated telephone number. Text message your controls to the corresponding telephone number to move the character and drop bombs. Text controls are simple: "B" for BOMB, "U" for UP, "D" for DOWN, "L" for LEFT, and "R" for RIGHT. Controls can and should be sequenced together to pre-plan moves. For example, "RRUUBLLDD". BUDLR aims to present innovative crowd controls and an intriguing game that demands passerby attention.
