Balloon Headed Boy

Aiming to bring cheer to Blue Monday by going free on the App Store.

LONDON - January 25, 2010

Zattikka, the leading online and mobile game company, today announced that they have found a solution to Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year. Blue Monday is known as the most depressing day of the year because it falls near the middle of Winter, in the distant memory of Christmas, at a time when most of us have failed at our New Year’s resolutions. The solution to those blues is Pink Monday, the day that marks the arrival of Balloon Headed Boy, now free forever, on the iPhone.

Float away with Balloon Headed Boy, the touch-controlled action platform game featuring the adorable pink boy with an inflatable head. Use your finger to guide this little pink-headed fellow through over 34 levels of obstacles, enemies and secret areas. Collect gas from flowers and balloons to keep your head full of air so you can float over enemies and gaps to reach the end of the level.

See what the critics have to say about Balloon Headed Boy:

“Balloon Headed Boy is fun. A lot of fun. …reminds you of simpler times when all it took to have fun was a bizarro concept, day-glo graphics, and addictive game play.”

-- IGN Wireless

“A cute, cleverly designed platformer that delivers more fun than a balloon animal sculptor at a kiddies' party.”

-- Pocket Gamer

“Overall, Balloon Headed Boy is a really cute and enjoyable action game.”

-- AppCraver
