Morpheme Launches Balloon Headed Boy for PC

Go to to celebrate and maybe win some tat!

25th May 2006, London, UK. Morpheme, winner of multiple awards and one of the UK's most innovative and longest established developers of mobile games, today announced its move into the Downloadable Casual Games business with the release of Balloon Headed Boy PC on

In celebration of the launch Morpheme is offering 10 Non-Goody bags full of useless* tat to the 10 worst suggestions for 'Footballers names (kind of) found in film titles' - add to the groan-inducing likes of: Back to Duff-uture; Bruce Grobbelaar Almighty; Saving Private Ryan Giggs; and Shawn Wright Phillips of the Dead for your chance of to win nothing of value. Plus the Morpheme team will name (and shame!) you on their site - you'll receive full credit for your 'winning' entry. So, go visit the website - you know you've got nothing better to do!

Whilst there take a look and have a play with Balloon Headed Boy's 36 levels of rubberised madness (ten levels are available to play for free with much, much more of the Balloon Kingdom available to buy for a mere tenner).

Matt Spall, CEO and co-founder of Morpheme said, "Sitting around and pretending to be busy can be a full time and terribly tiring occupation, the silly games and general outpourings of rubbish we're populating with is us filling our time, so we can help folks waste theirs" also features another five casual corkers including Finger Frenzy, S.T.A.T, Pass the Pint, Piano Pooch and Primordial Soup. Each of the games displays the unique, quirky sense of humour and creative genius that has earned Morpheme a mantelpiece full of awards including: Develop Excellence - Best Mobile Studio and Innovation 2005; BAFTA Best Mobile Game - Bluetooth Biplanes.

The site is designed to offer a lighthearted distraction from the drudgery of work and study - with more than just games on offer, daft articles like 'Games That Never Made It' and 'Late for work AGAIN! A study in poor excuses' have been written by the team to share just because they can - and they call this work?
*Some of the prizes are actually quite good!
