21 Balloons is a fun skill game for kids where the goal is to grab balloons for your cute little teddy bear friends. There are a lot of balloons floating in the sky and it is your job to grab them with your Balloon Grabber and give them to the different colored teddy bears. Each teddy bear would like a balloon that is the same color as them, so if you match a bear with a balloon, you get extra points! But be careful, you must only grab balloons by their string, because your Grabber has pointy edges. If you miss the string, the Grabber will burst the balloon that you are trying to grab! If you pop a balloon, you lose a life and if you lose all of your lives, it’s game over!
This is a good game to help exercise your hand-eye coordination skills, as the Grabber is constantly moving, so you have to pick the right moment to release it into the sky. It also helps you to realize that it’s fun to share – so let’s grab those balloons and give those cute teddy bears exactly what they want!
How to Play: At the start of each level, there are a lot of different colored balloons hanging in the sky. At the bottom of your game screen, your Grabber is constantly moving 180 degrees. To release it, left click anywhere in the game area using your computer mouse. The Grabber will reach out and grab the first thing it touches. If it touches a balloon string, this is good! It reels the string in and gives it to the next bear. If it hits a balloon, that balloon pops and you lose a life. The heart icon at the bottom of the game screen tells you how many lives you have left. Underneath the Grabber you will see how many balloons you have to grab before you can progress to the next level.
The teddy bears that want the balloons are all different colors. The next bear that you are giving a balloon appears to the right hand side of the Grabber. To score extra points, grab a balloon that is the same color as the next bear. As you progress through the levels, obstacles are put in your way, including butterflies, which you can’t hit with the Grabber or you will lose a life. Want to make those teddies happy? Get grabbing!
Tip: There are special power-up balloons that help you as you go along. Balloons with a heart on them give you an extra life when you grab them, and balloons with a star on them give you extra points.
