Bloons is another one of those games that you just can not help but want to play. If you remember the old carnival game where you used to throw darts at a pin board full of balloons to win a stuffed animal, you have a basic idea of the theme of this game, except this time instead of playing for a stuffed animal you are playing as a stuffed animal.
Whoever decided to give a monkey darts was ingenious. Although this may not be the safest idea in the real world, it makes for a great game. This is a cannon style physics game, meaning the point is to fire a projectile at targets to gain a score. Specifically, you get a certain number of darts and you want to pop a goal number of balloons, or more if you can manage, to move on to the next round. You control two aspects in this game, the angle at which the dart flies and the amount of force behind the throw. You must use those controls to make the dart arch to hit the targets. Eventually Bloons adds more features. There are various obstacle materials that will bounce or be broken by darts, as well as a few types of specialty balloons. Of course you cannot have specialty challenges without specialty darts as well.
