Donít you love downloadable games? Donít have to go to the store, stand in line, hope that you like the game, and get mad if you donít. Menara Games
has come up with another quality internet game, Balloon Express
. After downloading the game online, installing it and playing it for that first session, I was struck by the very clean feel to the animation in the game. It was not highly realistic, it was more the type of animation that you would see during Saturday morning cartoons and I think that really adds nice character to the game. Menara Games
takes you to various locales all over the world, to the fields of Ireland with itís villages and ruined castles, to the hot and sandy desert of Egypt with its nomadic people. There are also tidbits of information that the game will tell you about the different countries so if you are not careful, you might learn some geography along the way.
Balloon Express has a very generic and simple soundtrack so it doesnít really add anything to the game. You have simple sound effects and a pleasant music track. During the game, I really didnít hear it much which is good thing because you better be concentrating on your objectives if you want to win!
