Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon


Float through the night on an illuminated balloon.

Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon is a game in which kids guide a man hanging on a floating balloon through several magical landscapes while chasing fireflies. The gameplay is simple, the music is light, the graphics are super. The effect is something like being inside a Monty Python animation (without the bite). The game is playable even by the very young, but note that on first run you will encounter several notifications with text directions, so if your kids can’t read yet, you might want to walk them through the first few screens until they get the hang of the game. My seven-year-old deems the game “too easy” but will rarely passes up a chance to play.

Sir Benfro is the creation of Tim Fishlock, a London-based artist.
