Helium Boy is an original 3D platform game for iOS, inspired by classic games like Balloon Fight and Balloon Kid. Use your helium filled balloons to fly through diverse, colorful environments and collect all the stars. Watch out for birds, ninjas and spikey things and don't fall into the water!
Helium Boy features full 3D Retina graphics with a cute artstyle. 8 challenging stages, all with unique environments and different types of gameplay. Full 3D gameplay, as well as a couple of traditional sidescrolling stages. Two difficulty modes: in beginner mode you can play the stages at you own pace and easily collect all the stars, but in normal mode the screen is scrolling automatically and constantly forces you to move forward, so you have to find the perfect route to get all the stars before they leave the screen.
The game uses an onscreen gamepad. Touch the directional pad to move in the character in any direction. Press the Jump button repeatedly to fly with the balloons. If the balloons pop, press the Pump button to get new ones, or jump around without them. You can also let go of the balloons at any time by pressing the Drop button.
What's New in Version 1.33
Added more controller options
Pretty cool i guess
I thought it would be a really good game, but the title says it all. I just beggined the game and i couldnt even win the first level,you want to know why?The controls,when i jump i try to land on something i just end up falling in the water!Yeah, i know u could use the shadow to know where ur landing but if u forget about once then you"ll have about probably 70 percentage of falling in the water,which is obviously annoying. And not only that but the screen moves by it self! But there is something positive, its kind of fun to play with the character.
So hard to find an IOS game that's a 3d platformer in the vein of Mario 64, Spyro, Crash Bandicoot et al. Would love to see more from this title, power ups, ways to fight the baddies ect, this has promise to become an A1 title
I like this game... However; I have the iPhone 5 and really would like the update so their is no annoying black bars on the side of the screen. Thank you😊
