In a perfect world he flies in balloons and pukes on birds; alas in our imperfect world he hides in barns and pukes on TV.

It did its job

Was it too soon? I don't think so. Newgrounds is always the place for silly games based on current events. This game adequately paid tribute to the 'Balloon Boy'. The playability was good. The replayability wasn't so good, because it was just more birds and nothing new. I did get adequate entertainment the first time around, though.

Things I might improve:

There is plenty of video of this event that you could capture. You might try capturing the balloon from a few angles, and make the balloon spin while it's moving.

You might try adding levels to the game. You could make it a timed game, and have it eventually run out of helium and land for each level.

You might try adding a few more powerups for variety.

Maybe, you could also add a helicopter or two.

For what it is, the game is just fine. Who knows, maybe you'll get a mention in the next NG history flash.

Lol, that game is pretty easy.

In my opinion the medal should be worth only 25 points (if not 10), it's fairly easier than any other 50-points-worth medal in NewGrounds.
I got a 16k score in my second run through the game, and I posted it on the BBS, take a look:

Huzzah! Achievement be MINE!

Simple game, pretty funny though. And you get free slice of cake for your name being Falcon, the same as the kid 'in the balloon.' Excellent and hilarious pun that I didn't look to see if anyone else caught.

Simple, short and sweet game

This was a pretty funny. It's really easy to pick and play. It would have been even funnier if you had the boy fall out of the balloon when it pops just for the hell of it (yes, I know the boy wasn't really in the balloon, but it still would be hilarious if you did that).
