Balloon Headed Boy

Inflationary platformer arrives on the iPhone.

London, UK, April 14th 2009 - Playora Ltd, the new publishing entity formed by Matt Spall and his team at Gimme5games is pleased to announce the launch of the award winning mobile classic Balloon Headed Boy, newly realised on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch and the relaunch of Balloon Headed Boy's own web site at

It's Balloon Headed Boy's Birthday, and the King of the Balloons has arranged a huge party for him at Balloon Castle. All of the balloons in Balloon Town have been invited and everyone is very excited.

Help Balloon Headed Boy race through 32 levels of rubberised madness - collect farty flowers to inflate his head and soar between the platforms, thwop those frogs, keep your head above the rising waters, and rescue the balloons so the birthday party can go ahead as intended!

Already making the 'What's Hot' list in the UK AppStore, the game has 34 sumptuous levels (some with multiple sub-levels) and in-game achievements, offering deep gameplay and great re-playability.

Originally decribed by Pocket Gamer as; "A cute, cleverly designed platformer that delivers more fun than a balloon animal sculptor at a kiddies' party" the iPhone version of the game introduces a new control mechanic tuned to the touch screen and movement sensor of the device, in addition to a number of new levels never found in the original mobile release.

"We're really pleased we've been able to bring Balloon Headed Boy back to the iPhone and iPod Touch, it was always a struggle to deliver the true polish of the game on the lower powered devices and it's an absolute treat to finally be able to do the game justice on such an awsome handset", said Matt Spall, General Manager of Playora.
