Balloon Fight
"In Balloon Fight, the player controls a Balloon Fighter who flies around with two balloons on his back. The object of the game is to defeat all of the enemies in each level by popping the balloon on their backs. When the balloon is popped, the enemy will float down on a parachute, and either land on the ground and survive, or fall in the water and drown, although sometimes a big fish will come out and eat the enemy before it can touch the water, but it can also eat the player if he is too close to the water. If the enemy lands, the player must harm it before it can blow up another balloon or it will change to a different color. It can also be harmed by hitting its parachute. All of these ways of harming the enemy will cause it to fall into the water which will cause a bubble to float up that can be popped for bonus points. If an enemy pops two of the players balloons, the player loses a life. It is also possible to lose a life by falling in the water, getting hit by lightning, or getting eaten by a fish. After every three phases there is a bonus stage where balloons rise up out of pipes. Each one popped will give the player a certain amount of points.
The levels get progressively harder, with each one featuring new and faster enemies. After completing enough levels the game starts reusing older levels with more enemies and an item, the flipper, that knocks characters away.
The game also has a two player mode. Two players (one with blue balloons, one with red) play together in a similar fashion to the single player mode. However, it is possible for the players to pop each other's balloons.
There is also a minigame called Balloon Trip, a side-scrolling level in which the player must avoid electric sparks while trying to pop balloons."
-The Official Review on Balloon Fight

For those of you who haven't played balloon fight, here is you chance. Balloon Fight is trully a clasic and Goomdaddy and MattB64 have re-created it for you, so you can have the honor of playing it too.

love ballon fight! it was one of the 1st games I bought when it came out.

but this remake is too fast, it's probably my pc, several games run too fast on mine if created on a slow pc. so basically I'm running around & flying too fast which kills the game.
The collisions are somewhat bad with the enemies.
The ai on the enemies is retarded. more than half get eaten by the fish.
with all that said, my favorite part of the game "ballon trip" was unplayable unless I start encoding an avi file to divx just so I can slow the pc down a bit... & yet it doesn't work!

overall it's a 6 in my book

Interesting game. I've never played the original, which I imagine would be for NES considering the graphics style. The only suggestion I would make would be to fix up the collisions a bit, make them more acute, so I'm not hitting enemies too soon before I actually make contact with their balloons. Good work,

I liked this a lot, except I must agree that balloon trip needed work. Great otherwise, and looks almost EXACTLY like the old version. It also felt like it too. Good job on this replica, BUT!!!! take off the part where it says (c) Team Retro. That's kinda stupid since this is a total remake...and more like a copy, just for the computer. 8/10.

I think (c) means copyrighted... in which you don't have.

Good Job, 7/10

Yeah, we just did that for fun. It normally says (c) nintendo

Quote: "this is already a game"

That is the entire point.

Theres nothing better then a remake of a good old game that you don't have the system for anymore.

The only thing wrong with this is the speed. A tad to fast.
It's Ballon Fight for gosh-sakes!
