Balloon Gun (バルーンガン) is a discrete logic arcade video game manufactured by Sega and released in August 1974. It was a first-person light-gun shooter, with twin guns for two-player co-op gameplay.

Gameplay

The game is a 1 or 2-player game and perfect score is 60. As the game starts, the balloons appear in a slow pattern, allowing ample time for careful aim; as the game proceeds, the balloons are released at a faster rate making scoring more difficult. With each balloon that is burst by a pistol shot as it appears in the target area, a score of 1 point is recorded. Each player is given 60 shots and the game ends when that number has been fired.

In a 2-player game, the first one to use all 60 shots terminates the game for both players and the one with the highest score is the winner.
