Balloonia and Lite

This game looks awesome. It's a bit like Paradox 3000, but with the simpler goal of just reaching the other end. It's sleek, but looks quite pricey at $1.99. The screenshots are amazing though. Anyone tried it?

Oh right, here's the link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=295533530&mt=8

Took the plunge and got it.

It is awesome. There are 3 modes: survival (where there is a time limit), deluxe (where you have to get past numerous obstacles and with a time), and classic, where you can just keep on playing. It's a really fun game, and the graphics are slick and out of the world. Overall, the game is a great puzzler that can keep you at it for hours or just for a casual game. If you like this type of game, then go ahead and buy it! But you might want to wait for a price drop, as 7.99 is pretty pricey for a puzzler.

I've purchased it as soon as it came out... I know I'm out of control...

The game has a professional production: graphics, sounds, animations and gameplay.

One of the best puzzle games so far IMO (along with Tatomic and Blackbeard).

I gotta admit, the first thing I think of when I see I see a hot air balloon isn't Pipe Dream.

I also like how the game features "Awesome Levels...".

The shots look nice. I wouldn't mind seeing it in action.
