When your balloon crash-lands in a wasteland of fowl creatures, its time to survive. Upgrade your weapons, fort, and turrets while you try to fix your balloon. Balance your free time between battles so you are prepared for future waves. Try to escape as soon as you can!

Very fun old game I used to play, tried to get a lower and lower time, I had a bug once where I was repairing the balloon while in the shop and I figured that's how the dude on the #1 spot got 3:01 because that's when the first shop appears, but I guess I'll never figure it out because I couldn't replicate it.

Did get the top 110 spot, game holds up pretty well and considering I had fun in it when in a lot of modern games I don't have fun, it does it's job very well.

This game is very simple, mechanically, but ultimately a lot of fun. The music is my favorite part, and really reinforces the mood, one of isolation and survival. Speaking of which, I hope there is a link added for the main theme music. It's very good, but I would like to be able to hear it without the gunshots from the game.

I'm to lazy to write, so I'll say this short, it's awesome
There's a glitch where if you jump and make him sleep, he'll stay in the air, and he'll be able even to buy thing up there, but enemies will NOT hurt you. The only 2 reasons to be on the ground is to place traps and actually do what are you supposed to do

very lovely game, much easer then its clones but i really enjoyed this.

This is a spectacular achievement and is probably my favorite game from jmtb02, who is one of the best game developers online. The atmosphere is perfect, making each successive night feel even tenser than the last, thus making you struggle against both time, your limitations, and your fears of the unknown. Both addictive and unique, Balloon in a Wasteland is a morose masterpiece from start to finish.
