App description: Balloon Boy is on the loose with his escaped balloon. This time he's on board, and it's up to you to navigate around nosey news vans and their broadcast antennas.

Watch out for news and military helicopters, military jets, and commercial jumbo jets.

Control your balloon through tilt action, and earn points by avoiding obstacles.

Track your high scores through OpenFeint and compete with friends.

Those people committed fraud and should get no help from anybody. My/Our tax dollars paid for the helicopters that tracked that balloon, and who knows what else.

This is a surprisingly good pickup and play game. You control an escaped balloon, and the screen moves automatically from left to right and you have maneuver the balloon around obstacles such as moving helicopters and jets without making contact with any, the farther you make it the more points you earn.

The game uses accelerometer controls to tilt the balloon left, right, up, and down... and the controls are done very well, the sensitivity and accuracy of your movement is precise. Balloon-Boy has good sounds and decent graphics to go with the gameplay.

The game has Openfeint leaderboards for high scores. Fun game for pickup and play gamers to check out.

Ha ha! Good one!

I knew this was coming at some point - I just knew someone would capitalize on this.
