In this game, you take a balloon trip across the night time sky.
The object of the game is collect all the purple balloons on the level. You are in
control of the little man. He has two balloons to start. If he hits a star
or bolt in the foreground (hard to miss), he will lose a balloon. When all his
balloons are gone, he will plummet downward. Also, try to avoid getting sucked
into the bottom of the screen. This can happen at anytime, so use caution when
flying at low altitudes.
You can control your horizontal direction by moving the joystick left or
right (or using the left and right arrow keys for keyboard). The only way to
maintain verticle height is to flap your little arms. Do this by pressing a
joystick button (or the up arrow key for keyboard). It is best to just tap
the joystick (or keys) to move left and right, never hold in a direction, or
else you may lose control (experiment I guess).
There are 5 levels in the unregistered version of Balloonz, and 10 in the
registered version. You can skip levels by pressing the appropriate number
key during the Midnight Journeys' intro, (i.e. pressing 3 will let you begin
on level 3).
Acumen Software is the name under which programmer Adrian B. Danieli released shareware software in the 1990's.
