Yesterday we explored the crossover between balloons in the news and video games. Today, certifying the saga of Balloon Boy as a true news event, someone made a flash game out of it - a flash-based side-scroller anyone can enjoy.
Balloon Boy will test your knowledge of rudimentary game physics as you decide which gulls to avoid and which to shoot during a journey through the American news cycle.
Protips: You need two shots to kill a gull. Just one to pick up time and rainbow goodies. Only one shot on screen at a time
Balloon Boy was developed by Immad Akhund, Jude Gomila and James Smith, three 25-year-olds. The game's purpose seems to ask "How Many $$$ of Taxpayer Money Can you Waste?"
