Balloon in a Wasteland is a shooter where you face waves of enemies. When your balloon crash-lands in a wasteland of foul creatures, you have to fight to survive. Acquire weapons, a fort, and turrets while you try to fix your balloon. Balance your free time between battles so you are prepared for future waves. Try to escape as soon as you can!


Use the keyboard to move and use the mouse to aim and shoot. Enemies will approach from the right side of the screen in waves, and you'll have to mow them down as they come. Killing enemies reward you with cash to purchase upgrades. Between waves, shopkeeper trucks arrives which allow you to buy traps, new weapons, fortresses to retreat to when things get hairy, and upgrades for everything. The goal is to survive long enough to repair your balloon and escape in as few days as possible. Run over to it whenever you get a chance and tap the down arrow to start repairing it, but doing so leaves you unable to attack. Keep an eye on your health and your stamina, since if the latter gets low enough, your accuracy will begin to degrade. Buy a fort to sleep safely in to recover it.
