Baseballoons - Home Run Derby with Bombs and Toons (Launching 1/25/2018)



Hello TA!

This is Baseballoons! It's a home run derby game where you try to hit the ball into as many balloons as possible, while avoiding the bombs. There is a big cast of characters to unlock along the way that will leave you wanting one more swing. =D It's being developed solely by yours truly, and you can follow me on twitter @jay43K for updates or just to say hello!

You have 3 outs, and psst -- if you hit a grand slam you will replenish an out!

The game will be free with a one time IAP to remove ads.

Looking for TestFlight testers right now! Sign up and invites will be going out soon!

Very interested to get more feedback and hear what YOU think would make the game better.

Launching on 01/25/2018!

Hey everyone!

First batch of TestFlight builds have went out! Sign ups are still available. Sorry for the delay.

Development is going great and I'm creating lots of weird little things/creatures you can play baseballoons as, and these three characters above were some of the first to be created and hold a special place, and will be the first three characters featured on the app icon.

Just sent out a new test flight build! Everyone that has signed up should have got an invite, send me a message if you didn't get it.

The iPhone X sort of put a wrench in my schedule and I had to do some trickery in order to get it supported. But that is all sorted and now the game has glorious full screen iPhone X support! Definitely looking for those who have an iPhone X and can test to make sure.

To the developer: As a TestFlight beta tester of your game, I can report that the most recent update has enhanced what was already a very enjoyable game. When do you plan to submit this to the App Store and activate the Game Center connection?

Hey all,

Some not great news. Originally I fully intented to get baseballoons out by the holiday (I just completed the last 3 holiday themed characters!) but.. as these things tend to happen, I am forced to delay the game by about a month... This is because of non-game backend logistical crap that I screwed up and am getting fixed, and I hope to be ready as soon as possible!

In the meantime, I'll still be tuning up the game and adding new characters. Have a character idea? Fire it off here! I'll make whatever you want to play as!
