Based on the passionate response from fans of Balloonimals – we were looking for new ways to evolve and bring our balloon friends to life. As passionate iPhone gamers ourselves – making Ziggy the Balloonimal the star of an action game was an easy choice. Thus our goal became to create a game experience that would be simple, playful, and fun for adults and kids alike.
Inspired, we set to work. We started out imagining a whole Balloonimal world where the enemies would be anything sharp. Our favorite iconic sharp enemies became the pencils and push pins – we even imagined and prototyped an evil stapler of doom! The game metaphor - collecting bubbles to stay afloat – as well as the powerups, animations, sounds, etc. all came from envisioning a fantastical balloonimal world where Ziggy wants to fly high and collect as many bubbles as he can – doing his best to escape impending danger along the way.
Ziggy evolved with a new younger look, and new moves like his signature cartwheel! Our friends at Red Dot Media
did an amazing job designing the sound effects and music to capture the Balloonimals Pop! experience.
We hope you enjoy playing Balloonimals Pop! as much as we enjoyed creating it. Stay tuned for more updates planned – including new characters, environments, power-ups, score sharing and more!
