Smart, intuitive controls keep you in total command of your balloon, even through tricky areas and tight squeezes.
Amazing hand drawn environments blend seamlessly with superbly rendered 3D models to create a stunning visual experience.
Huge variety of game modes to keep you playing, ranging from simply making it to the end of a level, to mine sweeping, to taking on a squadron of enemy balloons.

Want to know why the 3DS and PS Vita are doomed? Try this game and you will see. Great concept, perfect execution, and great polish make this game a winner. Have played 5 levels and call me impressed. Spot on controls and what appears to be a lengthy campaign further defines why the iOS systems are the portable gaming machines of this generation. You can also unlock different ballons with varying characteristics. Physics are excellent. All for 1.99.

Funny how a company that isn't a game company-Apple-, is defeating the traditional gaming giants with a superior product and business model.

Kudos to Chillingo, the developer of Rogue Sky, Apple, and TA ( top 50 best websites).
