About The Game

"KING & BALLOON" is a shooter released by NAMCO (Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.) in 1980.

Shoot down the swarms of balloons that are coming to steal the king!

The game will continue so long as the king isn't fully taken away into the sky, no matter how many times your cannon is destroyed.

You can also rescue the king as the balloons take him by shooting them down and rescuing him before he goes away.

The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.

Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.

Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.

*This game uses the Japanese ROM for the main part of the game.

The options menu and manual are available in Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
