Trackballs is a simple game similar to the classical game Marble Madness
on the Amiga in the 80's. By steering a marble ball through a labyrinth
filled with vicious hammers, pools of acid and other obstacles the
player collects points. When the ball reaches the destination it continues
at the next, more difficult level - unless the time runs out.
This game is not intended to be a replica of Marble Madness but rather
inspired by it. The game is also highly configurable by using a
scripting extension (Guile) and it provides a simple editor by which new
levels can easily be created.
Install the trackballs-music package for a soundtrack to be played during
gameplay. For more information and screenshots of the game please see

some drivers depend on signal handlers to work as normal.
