This is a clone of the famous Qbasic GORILLAS.BAS game, written for the DragonRuby Game Toolkit. This is 380 lines of Ruby, and a handful of PNG files.

Type numbers on your keyboard and press enter to throw an explosive banana. Take turns with a friend!

If you're on a machine with a keyboard, you can play the HTML build of this game right on this page. Otherwise, you can download it for several different platforms below!
