This game is pretty fun, though the screen can get a bit cluttered. I like how you can still live after all your balloons have been popped by shooting down. Adds an extra bit of tension as I hold on and try to find a new balloon. All in all, a solid game. Good job!


Yeaaaa, balloon buddies! Seems that we think alike! While your game is pretty similar to mine, I do like the differences in mechanics that you have! It's both easier and trickier at the same to move around by aiming with the mouse, as it becomes impossible to stop your momentum when you have to click outside of the screen. I like how even when you have no balloons, you can still keep yourself in the game for a bit longer... plus the limited range of your gun forces you to move in close to enemies to kill them in hopes of getting extra balloons! All in all, a fun game, well done~


Needs a full screen mode (or I haven't discovered it) as I keep on clicking outside. I think with no balloons you could stay alive for a relatively long time by mashing buttons though. Otherwise cool idea and nice execution!


That was fun! I didn't really like the weapon that shot 2 bullets at 45 degree to where you were aiming, and the drop rate of it seemed higher than everything else. The core game-play loop was fun though, and the theme was incorporated really well!


Very solid little score attack game, theme makes sense, quite fun for a short time.

It didn't seem like the game got any more difficult as it went on which would have made it more interesting.

I did like how you go into a last ditch mode when you lose all your balloons and fall faster than normal.
