So, in april 2018 we finally released the beta version of our groundbreaking android game, Bouncy Balloon. 

Almost three years after the first steps toward the game.

It all started in the spring of 2015, when the young games artist Elias Lundgren met the promising game developer Mattias Svensson Bergqvist. They found quickly common ground, and begun carving out the idea that eventually led to Bouncy Balloon.

The idea was to create a fun and happy game with a retro flavor of the 1980s, while bringing a new kind of platform game sensation to the audience.

– This is a typical scroller, but without the running and jumping, says games artist Elias Lundgren. Instead you control a hot air balloon through an intriguing journey stuffed with challenges.

Skilled game developer Mattias Svensson Bergqvist smiles and explains:

– You have to master all kinds of tricks, to get alive through our game. It´s not a sunny Sunday stroll. On the contrary, it´s a deadly challenge to get alive through all our levels!

The levels are filled with obstacles like huge airships, scaffolding, sky scrapers, and antenna masts. While steering free from all those dangerous obstacles, you need to avoid deadly black mines, bombs hanging from balloons and more. Don´t forget to keep an eye on the state of your balloon. If damaged, it will start to descend faster and faster…

During the journey you may run into big red bouncers, like the ones seen in those classical pinball games from the 80s.  It may be a good thing — if the bouncer throws you over an antenna. Less good if you get thrown right into a black mine, however! 

– Yes, and the red bounce-mines are even worse, Elias Lundgren states. They are moving items, so you can never be sure that your balloon runs free from them.

The first release of Bouncy Balloon is version 0.9.0. The game is in public beta state, meaning there might still be some bugs in it. Also, the shading of the graphics will be improved in later releases.
