                Atop their hills reside the last two Hillbillies of a long line of Hillbillies wiped out from years of feuding. The last one standing will claim the right to call himself the hilliest billy of them all. Billy Brawl is a game of ultimate skill and precision. You and your opponent take turns huckin' an assortment of 'munition at each other. First one to knock the other unconscious wins. This will be a fun and irreverent game, we want to develop, WITH YOU, for the web and iPad releases. http://kck.st/ImaSOp
