251116jpgIn the ongoing flood of games, one that we've neglected to report on is the port of the very popular Bloons flash game. The iPhone version was released in April and has managed to shoot to the top 10 list of paid apps during that time.

Bloons is a seemingly simple trajectory game in which you must pop as many balloons as possible using a limited number of darts and other power ups. To successfully solve level, you need to pop a pre-determined quota of balloons.

The iPhone version of Bloons contains 50 levels as well as bonus "hidden" content that can be unlocked. A major update to the game is also coming with 50 more exclusive levels, unlimited darts mode and a level editor. While there are a number of similar games available in the App Store, this is the one you probably played on the web. The online version is still available to try.

The game debuted at a $2.99 price but has since dropped to $0.99 while the update is pending.

    wow. apparently no one has any comments for this.

    I think this game looks a little boring... not interested. If they are going to be porting flash games then how about Territory Wars, I loved that game!!!

      The game was fun. I kept having 'just one more go' in the attempt to pass each level. I'd never played Bloons until I purchased it earlier in the week. It's very much a casual game with fast levels. You have to think ahead about how darts will rebound and what 'powerups' (boomerang, 3 dart throw, lightsaber, etc) you need to aim for and how best to use those powerups. I felt a great sense of satisfaction when I completed all 50 levels. The only problem I had was with the controls as it was hard to judge the power of a throw. But that was not a major problem for me. Try the online version if you are not sure.

    I'm a sucker for 99c games and this one is alright. Just alright.
    Issue: Some angles are hard to aim because your arrow is under your finger.

      You can aim the arrow from anywhere on the screen. So you can aim and view the arrow at the same time.

    The bad thing is that there are some levels where you need to have perfect accuracy, sometimes for more than one shot, in order to get all the balloons.

    It's just kinda outrageous and gets annoying after a while.
