Not bad. Once you get the hang of working the balloons, gets pretty challenging up near 300m.
Nice !

Edit: I was using Chrome

NonGMOTrash responds:

what browser are you using?
i've played a bunch in chrome, edge, and in engine but i haven't encountered this bug (it's not tied to reaching the dev record, that was just a coincidence). either it's some browser specific weirdness or extremely rare

I Like How You Can Pop The Balloons You Spawn. 5/5 Stars

It's promising! I think my biggest complaints are that the balloons are pretty finnicky and that there isn't much in the sky (why have movement controls when you're practically never going to use them?)

NonGMOTrash responds:

if you limit yourself to only 2 or 3 balloons you can wiggle around a bit
thanks for the review!
