    Don't want this name associated with ROM hacking, but it was my discord name on the Pokémon mini server when USC made this, so I've changed it to the name I use here and added some context

Board Fight

Hack of Balloon Fight

Description:

In this new Balloon Fight level hack, the balloon fighters once again discover new worlds and challenges as they continue to battle for their lives.

This hack was not originally planned to have been developed so soon following the release of the first Balloon Fight level hack, Cosmic Balloon Assault. It came about from discussion about a Board 2 collaborative hack as a suggestion for an initial project that would hopefully be less involved to familiarize participating members and get their hacking hands dirty to help build experience. However, the majority of the physical hacking for this project was performed by Quick Curly. Even so, multiple people contributed level designs to this hack.

There are 16 new Phases (compared to the original count of 12) and no Bonus Phases. With this situation, now there are no “healing intermissions”. In the original game, the Bonus Phases would restore the 2 balloons for each player. Now, the balloon fighters will face the ultimate survival challenge! However, to account for this situation, the balloon fighters both start out with 20 extra lives instead of the usual 2.

This hack uses the BPS patching format. Please download the beat utility by byuu and refer to the readme file for appropriate patching instructions.

There is also an additional patch to disable the Bonus Phases for the original Balloon Fight game for those who would enjoy such an option.

Good Levels

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 18 Jan 2022

As I said earlier, I met good hacks on “Balloons Fight”

Not only the structures of the levels have been changed here, but they have also been graphically updated.

There are more enemies somewhere, somewhere less, BUT the fact of fair play is present here. This means that it is played well and fun, which makes the hack do its job to the fullest extent.
