I just can't get the balloon to go all the way up the opening.
It almost made it once but that bird showed up and flu right into it. :(

Hi Road, try to check the video I was posted before. The tip is after to play in all toys wait the bird oine more time, so you?ll have enough time until the next appear.

Great video.  :)
I'm doing better at it now. I'm just having trouble grabbing the balloon again before it pops.

There?s a quote from manual who explains that (I guess):
"Always remember though that when the boy moves from L to R, his right hand holds the ballon and vice versa"

I finally got the balloon up the opening. :)

How do you score that one?
Is that a 2 player game?

Maybe it could be Blobbers, but someone like this game or it just me?
(someone like any game?)

How about Puzzle Piece Panic for August? That would be cool (and I don't see it on any prior list here - unless I missed it)?


Title: Re: Loony Balloon
Post by: roadrunner on July 31, 2011, 06:15:47 AM
Blobbers sounds good.  :)
And we'll go with Puzzle Piece Panic for September.  :)

Okay, after too many tries, I have to admit one thing - I suck at Loony Balloon. I just don't get it. Just not my game I guess. :|

Me neither, I tried it again this morning but... no. Don't like it at all.

I'll try this "Ballon Fou" this afternoon too ... my max score was 95.
Wild winds are always blowing ! and this crazy bird ... Can I call the man in "Clay Pigeon" to kill this bird?

Didn't bother with a picture. Best score after a few hours of play was around 23 or so. Just can't get a grip on this game. Tough!

150  :)

(and it only took me two hours ...)

its amazing ... I think the game would be half as hard and actually playable, if you could properly grab the balloon ... but then again it might be too easy :)

Since it's still July 31 in the States, here's a late entry, with 208 points.  I also scored 204 points in the Brazilian version, which I guess uses easier boards (?).  I'm using John D.'s multicart, and the one I'm used to (from playing it via emulation before I got my Odyssey2) is the one he labels "unreleased version".
