Balloon Escape

Author Comments

You have to stop the kids from escaping by shooting the balloons. Shoot the balloons being careful to leave at least one balloon for each kid and pet or they will fall too fast and get hurt (and you'll loose a life). If you let them escape you'll loose a life too.

Use the mouse to aim and shoot. Use spacebar to pause the game.

Thanks to everyone that found the game fun. And also for the suggestions. I will take them in consideration in future games.

(title in work)

Not a bad game by any means, but really not meant for the NG community I think. The game play is a bit stale for me. Pretty generic and not too interesting. This game didn't keep my interesting for too long. Graphically it has a strange look to it. Could have used some shading perhaps.

Not too shabby

Maybe my gaming skills just suck... but my lvl 8 or 9 it just gets unmanageable.

A good attempt, but needs improvement.

I was skeptical, but then I tried it and said "This is actually a cool idea!". The graphics were poor and could use some work, especially the backgrounds, but the gameplay has a lot of promise.

Simple yet challenging, the perfect mix. I also liked the option to turn off the annoying music; any game that does that gets a plus in my book!

I think a sequel is in store. Add some cooler graphics, improve some of the bugs (e.g, popping all the balloons automatically allows you to win, some balloons don't drift away when they're supposed to, and some characters can go off the sides of the screen.), and maybe make the characters smaller so it'll be more challenging. All in all, this is more like an Alpha build of a great game, than a finished product. I'd like to see the idea carried on though.


The game was very repetitive and got boreing after the 5th level. The concept was good however, if at all possible you should salvage what you can from this game and put it into another. Add some animations, sexy up the title page, and keep the people from going off the screen (Horizontaliy), and you will have a much better game.


it was simple and kindof repetitive but strangly addicting
