About The Game

Originally a hit in the arcades of the early ‘80s, NES classic Balloon Fight puts you in control of a heroic balloonist. Simply, pop the balloons of your enemies before they pop yours!

Falling enemies will deploy a parachute, so hit them again to knock them into the water below or into the jaws of a hungry fish. But watch out, the fish has its eyes on you, too!

Balloon Fight also features a two-player mode with cooperative and competitive play, plus a side-scrolling survival mode called Balloon Trip.
