The heroes are out and all we have now is Balloon Hero. Help him evade all the obstacles and escape the tower! Keep away from spikes, flames and those spiky creatures that might pop the balloons!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Interesting concept but let down some glaring issues.

Navigation is quite bad, escpecially considering you can't backtrack. You can't move the camera manually and sometimes it scrolls too slowly. At one point in Monster's Tower, you need to decide between going left or right with no indication which is the right way. So if you go left like I did, you have to start the whole tower again. If you go right, you're met with a spiked death so you can continue left.

The towers seem to be split into levels but there's no level/checkpoint select.

"Clear progress" doesn't just bring you to the start of the level. You have to recollect all the stars. I got 79 out of 80 stars and there's also no indication to which tower the stars are in. There's no reward for collecting all the stars either.

Hazards are unclear. Spikes (including spiked balls) don't harm the character's body or enemies.

BTW, I couldn't find a way to replay the story cutscene but if memory serves me correctly the president and his daughter have been kidnapped. Monster's Tower is where the daughter is being kept while Death Tower is where the president is.

Excellent mixture of physics/puzzle/"platformer".

Quite fun but the music got wearing after a while. The second tower should have a story intro? The one for the first tower was actually quite witty.

Oh and perhaps a bug - some of the laser beams seam to be disabled just by putting a sliding tower in front of them (so they touch), then moving the platform away. Only works on a few of them which is why I suspect it is a bug.

This was pretty decent. I didn't run into any glitches, or get stuck in the wall. I didn't think it would keep me interested, but I enjoyed myself until I won. I feel like I had some issues with the control, where sometimes the left and right arrows didn't work without pressing them several times, but it wasn't huge problem. The concept is pretty good. Pretty funny, as well. Is there a storyboard missing? I saved someone on top of the 2nd tower, but I don't recall going in for any reason. Maybe I wasn't paying attention.

I liked the graphics. The flying blue things are terrifying. Some of the sounds are a little annoying (fans, wing flapping) but the music is lush and effective.

Nice job.

I died and got stuck in the walls. Kind of sucked there. Overall not a bad game, but not super awesome.
