The game is pretty simple. There are balloons that move up across the screen and they have items in them. You move your cursor over them and then press the 'a' or 'b' button to pop the balloon. You get the items that are in the balloon. There are negative items in the balloons too, so you can just go popping like crazy. The game ends when the you have no ammo left. Scoring and penalty mechanics are described in the how to menu option. At the title screen hold L and R and then press B to reset the high score.
