Trivia

Commercial remake

The commercial remake of Ballerburg (Ballerburg: Castle Siege) was without any acknowledgement or credits to the original author. Even in their game forum, any acknowledgement to the monochrome Atari ST game was denied. In a response to a direct request from the programmer of the 1987 Ballerburg game to ASCARON, the company claimed their lawyers have checked before release that he cannot make any claims. As compensation, he was sent two copies of the commercial game.

Public domain

Ballerburg was released as a public domain program with the request to send 20 DM (~10€) to the author. He received 159 letters with the money, the last one in 2012.
