Balloon Fight NES Review - Balloon Fight

by Oklonia on Friday, February 22, 2002
Balloon Fight is a both cute and wonderful game. Simular to the arcade classic, Joust, Balloon Fight is a barrel of fun.

What makes it different from Joust is that you have two tries (or balloons) for each life. You try to pop everybody's balloons before they pop yours. You will hover much faster if you have two balloons.

Graphics: Good for an 8-bit system, the graphics are very clear and cute.

Sound: The sound can get a little annoying sometimes, but it is catchy and easy to recognize.

Control: I had no problem with the controls. Hover with the A or B button, Select browses through options, and Start selects something or pauses the game.

Gameplay: Sadly, the levels are more or less the same. But you get to play a little bonus stage every once in a while. Two players can play head-to-head. If you don't have anybody to play with, try the one player balloon trip to see how far you can go without hurting yourself or main game.

Overall Rating: This game is super fun and addictive. I rate it 4 out of 5!
