The choking sounds and expression are a great addition. I like the generous attract zones for the balloons. I think that was a very smart choice in design. Your music selection is a great fit and your choice of toy complements the Round 1 entry really well.

I agree with The Flamingo Games about camera control. I liked not having to worry about the camera in Round 1, but for this I needed that extra touch of control to make those split decision choices on what balloon to go after. Great entry. Thanks for sharing.


Thank you so much!

And that camera feedback makes sense to me as well.

It worked well when all you did was move around freely, but now that you need to strategise, the camera has to take that into consideration and be updated to allow for that.


Unfortunately, I haven't given a rating for this game because the memory usage was too much for my laptop to handle. I enjoyed this game in round 1 though so I'm sure it is really good in this round too. 


I still love this game, The choking face is perfect :D The only thing I'd change, is to let the player use the mouse to control the camera. The buttons were really limiting, as I often couldn't do a quick 180 to turn around and check for the next balloon


Thanks! And noted! If a future round allows it, I'll take that opportunity to improve the controls and maybe add mouse control as an option :)


Really fun addition to the game. But it made me wish the controls were a bit tighter as I didn't feel fully in control, felt a bit random if I get to a baloon or not.
Played this for quite a bit!


Thanks for the feedback! Glad it managed to keep your attention for a while at least!

I'll try to tighten and improve the controls a bit more in the next iteration then :P



241 Highscore. Loved this.


Haha, so glad you enjoyed it! That's a pretty good score :D
