BurgerSpace is a game where you are a chef and you must walk over hamburger ingredients (buns, meat, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese) to make them fall from floor to floor, until they end up in the plates at the bottom of the screen. Use the arrow keys to move the chef.

However, you must do this while avoiding terrible enemies, such as eggs, sausages and pickles. You will die if they touch you, but you can spray pepper on them with the Control key to paralyze them temporarily.

Use those pepper shots sparingly because you only have a limited number of them. Pick up the treat that appears from time to time to obtain a new pepper shot.

A two-player game is possible using the (experimental) networked version of BurgerSpace. See the burgerspace-server(6) manual page or the BurgerSpace Home Page for details.

Use the Escape key to quit the program. To pause the game (which is only possible in stand-alone mode), use the P key to pause the game and to resume it afterwards.


This program uses the flatzebra library, by the same author. This library is itself based on the SDL graphics library (see
