Ballon Hopper is a transporting genre game originally designed with the main purpose of loading a spacecraft with cargo boxes represented by amounts of points that alternate between 50 and 100 points. The player commands a transporting cargo flying vehicle on a windy day with a sky filled with Balloon traffic. He has to avoid colliding with them during the transportation otherwise a cargo vehicle is lost. The screen is divided by the upper screen which represents the dock of the Spacecraft, and the lower screen which represents the Space-port where the cargo is located at the first place. The spacecraft has to be loaded with 10 pieces of cargo and each time a piece is loaded the process of transportation has to be repeated.
As long as each Spacecraft is fully loaded and the level is complete, the number of Balloons increases.
