Anybody ever play this? It was for Game Boy.

Here's a video for it. Sorry I don't know how to get the actual video in the message.

But this is a fun game. The obvious sequel to Balloon Fight.

I played it briefly emulated, and it seems promising.

I totally enjoyed it on the Gameboy, and wasn't really aware of any previous version until later on.
It had enjoyable tunes, fun story, cool game-play (remember popping your balloons on purpose, then quickly try to pump-up some more :D) and fun separate challenge if I remember correctly.


SPOILER:
Yeah, I saved the little sibling! Fun ending, too!
The enemies and obstacles were relevant also!
The level inside an enemy or on some weird island was
pretty creepy for it's time/platform/funess.


Oh, and yeah, good female main-role character game! :)

I've never played it, but I really want to. It never came out in the US. :(
You see, games like these are the reason why we need a DSi VC! Guess I'll just emulate it in the meantime.

Wasn't there a color version of it too?

Balloon Kid on Game Boy came out in the US. I have the original cartridge.

Now the Game Boy Color Version called Balloon Fight GB was released only in Japan. :-)

I remember borrowing this from a friend years ago - I also recall really liking it. I think the music was cool but has been so long - Balloon Trip music on Ballon Fight is a 8-bit classic! Wario Ware Twisted has the tune as a scratchable record, hours of fun (perhaps!?).

Oooh, I'm gonna look for it then! :)

Or import BFGB, since Game Boys don't have region lock.

Yeah, it would be kinda cool to play the color version, and you can even save and replay levels.
