For every child that cried as a once-tethered balloon floated further and further out of reach, this is a game of hope. A quest for an unheard-of happy ending. A lost balloon that finds its way home!
To Play: Press the "select" button and your balloon will release air and rise. Avoid the girders and spikes to keep your balloon whole during your multi-day journey home through Rhode Island. The trip will require you to move day and night, while watching out for wind gusts. Your balloon uses its helium to rise, so each lift makes the balloon a bit smaller. Fortunately there are helium "bubbles" you can catch to refuel and keep moving! Be careful not to make your balloon too big, though there are double and even triple points for doing so. Your ballon can bounce off of horizontal surfaces (so it can land) but beware the spike and vertical beams.
• Simple one-button play makes the game easy to start, but difficult to master.
• It's possible to win! This isn't one of those "play til you die" games.
• A silhouette tour of beautiful Rhode Island during the journey.
• Game Circle leader boards and achievements add to the fun.
