Nintendo DS

Testing out Tingle’s Balloon Fight


Tingle’s Balloon Fight is one of those “rare” or hard to get games that you have to order directly from Club Nintendo in Japan. It’s a stretched out version of Balloon Fight from the NES except instead of playing as one of the Balloon Fighter’s you play as Tingle. Since the game is stretched over two screens you have much more room to fly around in. It’s most notable when you play “Balloon Trip”, where the screen automatically scrolls to the right and you have to dodge floating spikes. Since you can fly on either top or bottom screen it seems like the DS remake is much easier than the original. While you’re flying around in Balloon Trip there are rupees strapped to balloons that Tingle can snag and increase his score. Other than that, Tingle’s Balloon Fight is pretty much like the other games except Tingle is the star and there is wireless multiplayer for up to four people. It’s a neat bonus for Nintendo fans and you can see some (blurry-digital-camera-quality) screenshots past the break.
