Description:

Balloon In A Box Now Available for Apple iPhone™ and iPod touch®
PLAYING WITH HELIUM HAS NEVER BEEN THIS MUCH FUN!

Most people know that a balloon is an inflatable flexible bag filled with a type of gas, such as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide or air; and everyone remembers how fun it was (and still is) to bounce and play with balloons! Mongoose Devworks are giving players of all ages an opportunity to relive the excitement, joy and precious memoires from the county fair and joyful birthday parties. Balloon In A Box for Apple iPhone™ and Apple iPod touch® is now available on the App Store and brings to the palm of your hands a quality product with great game-play, vibrant colors and immersing music.

In Balloon In A Box, your objective is to guide your balloon throughout increasingly difficult mazes without popping the balloon. Controlling of the balloon is very intuitive and is done by tilting the iPhone™ in the desired direction of movement. Balloon In A Box has two very unique modes of play each targeted at audiences with different preferences and appeal. “Maze” mode is ideal for the casual player with an interest in guiding the balloon through randomly created mazes of varying size. Once you see the checkered flag and float across the goal-line, another maze is randomly generated. “Box” mode is ideal for the more competitive player. In this mode you challenge yourself in ten unique levels with three levels of difficulty. Once you successfully complete the levels in easy mode, medium levels become available, and should you become an expert player, completing medium mode makes available the hard levels! “Box” mode additionally features a large number of obstacles to avoid! Fans, nails, switches and darts are just a few examples of the many obstacles you will confront in your quest to guide your balloon, and every level is tricky with plenty of dead-ends to avoid! Both modes of play feature high-score tables, and combined this dual-mode solution makes Balloon In A Box suitable for everyone looking for a quality product that can be shared among the entire family.

Key Features:
  • Use the accelerometer to control the balloon direction and speed
  • 10 'Box' levels w/ 3 levels of difficulty each = 30 puzzles
  • Randomly generated levels in 'Maze' mode for unlimited fun
  • Fun for all ages- 'Maze' mode for the casual or young gamer, 'Box' mode for the older or hardcore gamer

If the title of this game made you think of Justin Timerlake, then you're in good company.
