    You'll need lightning-fast reactions to win this battle in the sky!

    Controlling a character to pop your opponents’ balloons before they pop yours sounds easy, doesn’t it? Don’t be fooled by this game’s simple premise or cute exterior, though–underneath these you’ll find a surprisingly challenging game with strategy to spare. After mastering the easy-to-learn controls, you still have to get a grip on the game’s impressively realistic physics. And if that’s not enough, there are still the ever-increasing enemies and environmental hazards like lightning and water. Or try the game’s second mode, Balloon Trip, if you feel like taking a break from the action and just want to see how long you can stay aloft. And, hey, who doesn’t like popping balloons sometimes?

    This game is only playable in 2D.

    BATTLING BALLOONS



    The balloons are coming! They're floating around carrying the enemy armed with more ammo than just hot air! The only thing to do is man your own balloon and counter attack. The balloon fight is on--raging over land and sea!

    GAME PLAY: Hop aboard your balloon and try to burst an enemy balloon's bubble. It's not easy, especially since there are so many balloons out to get you. Hit the enemy from above and send it into the drink below. Strike again as the enemy balloon floats down. If you don't, it will return to the fray--with a stronger attack! If you send an enemy balloon into the sea, fly down low. Watch for a bubble which will float to the surface. Shoot it for extra points! But beware of the fish. They are hungry. And you are on the menu! As you master game play, you'll meet tougher challenges--thunder and lightning storms as well as flying propellers that fling you across the sky. Two can play this game. While one of you bursts the enemy's balloon, the other goes for the enemy's parachute.

    BALLOON FIGHT
    You’ll need lightning-fast reactions to win this battle in the sky!

    Take to the skies! It’s BALLOON FIGHT. You’ll score lots of points and have loads of fun when you burst enemy balloons and send their parachutes crashing into the sea. But beware. These hot-air invaders have an amazing ability to land safely, blow up another balloon and come back stronger than before! Challenge them alone if you think you’re up to it, or team up with a friend. Either way, you’ll have the time of your life fighting off your opponents in the sky and avoiding those hungry sharks below in BALLOON FIGHT!

    Players: 1 or 2
