"The boy and the balloons"

Reviewed by / Jun 12, 2012

Use the helium balloons to move and collect all the stars

Helium Boy is a successful 3D platformer for Android that uses helium filled balloons as its main incentive. The goal is to collect all the stars while you fly and make sure you dodge the obstacles like birds, flying ninjas and other dangerous items.

You need to use the trackball to move, press the jump button to jump and tap on pump repeatedly so as to pump balloons, taking into account that you can only do it when you're on the ground. You can hold maximum two balloons at once and drop them when you need to.

The first time, play the beginner mode and then you will be able to proceed to the normal mode. Helium Boy Demo only includes the first stage of the game, the others can be played in the premium version. The graphics are really good and the game is extremely fun and people seem to be enjoying it very much. Plus, it's not really easy and it becomes challenging very soon, making it harder for you to pass the game quickly.

Bertil Hörberg is the developer of Helium Boy free and paid version, a really fun app with an addictive gameplay and 3D graphics that are pretty engaging. Nothing new but interesting features and controls.

Developer's original description available here
Helium Boy is an original 3D platform game for Android, inspired by classic games like Balloon Fight and Balloon Kid. Use your helium filled balloons to fly through diverse, colorful environments and collect all the stars. Watch out for birds, ninjas and spikey things and don't fall into the water!

Helium Boy features full 3D graphics with a cute artstyle. 8 challenging stages, all with unique environments and different types of gameplay. Full 3D gameplay, as well as a couple of traditional sidescrolling stages. Two difficulty modes: in beginner mode you can play the stages at you own pace and easily collect all the stars, but in normal mode the screen is scrolling automatically and constantly forces you to move forward, so you have to find the perfect route to get all the stars before they leave the screen.

Controls:
The game can be played with an onscreen gamepad or with a harware keyboard or gamepad. Touch the directional pad to move in the character in any direction. Press the Jump button repeatedly to fly with the balloons. If the balloons pop, press the Pump button to get new ones, or jump around without them. You can also let go of the balloons at any time by pressing the Drop button.

XPERIA PLAY Optimized
Supports HTC Evo 3D

If the game runs slowly, try reducing the screen size in the options menu.

If you run into a bug please have some patience and understand that I'm just one guy with (very) limited resources; I can't test the game on every possible hardware, but I'll do the best I can. Instead of just leaving a bad review, please contact me and I'll try to fix it.

    This game is a joke. The depth perception is badly skewed, the controls are shotty, and these issues really do make this game a chore. DO NOT WANT

    Why is the drop button all the way on the top-right of the screen? It makes the game so much harder to play on a tablet. Also, it's very tough to tell how close you are to the water in the vertical scrolling stages.
