Bloons Editor's Review

Bloons (world play on balloons) is a freeware action and puzzle game which has the very simple and satisfying concept of playing a monkey popping balloons. Off course the game is not entirely that basic, but it retains all satisfaction. The skill in the game that makes it a cross between action and puzzle is the mechanic of shooting the pin to pop the balloons, which requires a planned trajectory, and you have to pop a certain number of balloons with limited number of darts.

The gameplay of bloons is very simple to understand, you are a monkey who needs to pop balloons, and is floating in the clouds with various obstacles between it and the balloons, which means you need to carefully aim your pins to ensure maximum balloons are popped per shot, to ensure you meat the quota. In addition to obstacles and the like, there is also power up balloons, which when popped have various effects, such as chain reactions, which launch pins, which can then hit other power ups (like the chain reaction balloon, hence the name) as well as this, there are a few cool level unique power ups, such as a pac man power up, which unleashes pac man on the level.

The difficulty of bloons is quite well managed, the first level is very hard to fail, requiring you to almost go out of your way to fail, and the last level requires extreme precision in mouse aiming, the correct strategy in which set of balloons you hit first as well as power up placement to make you think, making the level an extreme challenge. Although these are two extremes, every level in between seems manageable, and the game really does an excellent job of making the levels in between challenging without being frustrating, a balance few games find.

The graphical value of the game is pretty simple, as the game is originally flash, so this is forgiven. Also, although they are working with limited resources they definitely achieved a great art style, being very colourful and enjoyable to look at despite limitations. The audio is nice and fits this style as well, being very light hearted all around, and contributing to the overall game. The controls are simple, but do achieve the goal. The mouse is used to both aim and set how much power is used, one of the few design flaws, and just a minor movement after deciding to click to set the power can mess up your shot entirely, something which is definitely not desired.

Overall bloons is a great game which is a lot of fun to play. The level selection will keep you coming back and trying to get closer to completing the game (with the end result definitely being worth it, by the way) and the humble but colourful graphics will make you love the game as it makes you addicted to it. Even if puzzle games are not your thing, the unique angle that bloons takes on it is definitely worth at least a download, to see how much you'll enjoy it, you won't regret it.
