This is a very simple game. You guide a balloon through thirteen rooms. Each room has thirteen spikes. Only one spike in each room is positioned so it will not reach the ground. You must move the balloon under that spike by clicking on the floor beneath the spike.To be more specific, you need to actually click on the floor portion, not the rising column portion. You will know when you are over a location that the balloon can be placed by the appearance of an X underneath the cursor. Be quick as the spikes are moving!
