Game Introduction

You must pull in two seperate directions to pull the rope tight and help your bouncy friend gain higher jumps. Also, you must watch the angle of re-entry so that you do not drop her! Balloons take multiple hits to pop and the last hit accelerates the flying kid and causes sharp change in angle.

Game Play

The balloons are scrolled on screen, seven screens high. While the girl is in the air, the screen splits to show close-ups of the action. You must push up on the joysticks to advance the kids holding the rope.

Miscellaneous

This game appears to be a Japan only release. A lot of mute pastel colors make the sprites quite unusual looking.
