Balloon Bliss is a match three puzzle game. Balloons will rise onto the screen. When there are three or more of the same color, click the group to remove them. If a row reaches the bottom of the screen, you will have ten seconds to clear some balloons or the game is over, although you can redo the level. If you cannot clear any balloons, you can click your Panic button to clear some balloons, if you still have Panic buttons remaining.
As you progress, you can purchase items from the store to help, and sometimes, hinder you. These can include Panic button charges, an item that will grant or take away money and a white balloon that will clear an entire row or column. In Endless mode, balloons rise up through the top of the screen. When there are three or more of the same color together, click them for points.
