App description: 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 memories from the county fair and joyful birthday parties. Balloon In A Box - Lite 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 - Lite, 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 - Lite 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 a randomly created maze. 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. Once you successfully complete the level in easy mode, a medium level becomes available, and should you become an expert player, completing medium mode makes available the hard mode! Box mode additionally features a large number of obstacles to avoid! Nails and darts are just a few examples of the many obstacles you will confront in your quest to guide your balloon. 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.

The full version adds nine additional levels to the "Box" mode with three modes of difficulty for an additional 27 puzzles, plus medium and large "Maze" modes.

Recent reviews:

"Balloon in a Box is a simple yet addicting puzzle game that tasks you with guiding a helium balloon through a maze. While this may sound simple, Mongoose DevWorks has crafted an app that will have you flipping and turning your iPhone or iPod Touch like crazy trying to get your balloon to the checkered finish. I wasnt expecting to enjoy this game like I did, which is a pleasant surprise. The app store is filled with games that are long on presentation and short on fun. Balloon in a Box is the opposite of that."

"Balloon In a Box makes excellent use of the iPhones accelerometer, so the controls are very responsive and pretty accurate...Its a great way to kill time on a bus, train, or while traveling on a plane. If you want a quick gaming fix that wont require a great deal of time then Balloon In a Box is great for that. Not to mention the game is great for those of all ages. The concepts are easy to pickup and learn in just a short period of time. I know quite a few people that allow their children to take advantage of their iPhone or iPod Touch and this game is sure to please."
