Ballon Gun is a 1- or 2-player game and perfect score is 60. With each balloon that is burst by an accurate 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.

As the game starts, the balloons appear in a slow pattern allowing ample time for careful aim but as the game proceeds, the balloons are released at a faster rate adding excitement and making scoring more difficult.
