A thoroughly addicting game. I've played it countless times after gladly ponying up for the full-version. The little characters are very cute and the action gets quite intense very quickly.

A great party game, if you don't mind people crowding around the keyboard. Maybe with a couple of gamepads....

Unplayable for me. It did not accept any key input, so I had to force quit it, which it doesn't do right (i.e., it sits there waiting for the dialog selections instead of doing a Q3A-like immediate exit). Switches screen resolution automatically and incorrectly, messing up widows I had open in other applications (this is true even if I launch and quit properly with the mouse before starting a game). Proper quit also logs tons of "Deallocation of a pointer not malloced " errors. Looks like it might be nice, but a poor effort overall.

Excellent shareware arcade game. Interesting and bizarre concept--you sit suspended in mid-air on a large baloon surrounded by layers of smaller balloons. Spikey ball(s) bound around the screen popping the protective baloons surrounding you and other players. When the baloon you're sitting on is burst, you plummet to the ground far below. You have a bat to defend yourself and deflect spikey balls toward others. Very addictive.

This game is not only simple to pick up, and insanely addictive to play (with fun graphics to boot) but (as with any good party game) when you get two or more people in on the action, crowded around a keyboard screaming as the ball comes their way, things start to get a lot more interesting. ^_^  There's no netplay capability, but it would lost a lot anyway....   Give it a try if you're playing on your own, and definately keep a copy nearby if you're having folks over.

Best shareware game I've played in years. Awesome graphics and sound, even better gameplay. The only thing that sucks is the mouse control, but keyboardplay is more precise anyway. 19/20, not bad :D
