Balloon From Hell

I have experienced rage in many games before, but never like I have in this Weekly Event: Air Balloon.  When I first saw this, I was ecstatic.  The idea of having a game inside of a game to win prizes was very clever and fun to me; however, as I played, I grew increasingly more frustrated due to many flaws of the game.  First, the game lags sooooo bad.  It is extremely hard to time tapping correctly when the frame rate does not allow for fluid movement (it is not my internet, believe me).  Secondly, the hit box for the balloon hitting the columns extends further than the balloon itself!  This is the most infuriating part of this game.  Now, I have completed it and gotten the prize, but it took me hours to do so.  I would like to think that my hand-eye coordination is not that terrible, as an avid N64, Gamecube, Gameboy, Wii, Xbox360, LoL, and PC gamer in general.  This game is broken, and needs to be corrected before it is ever used again.  How did the balloon hit the column when it was already past it?????

I love the idea, but f**king hate how broken this game is.  I should not need to spend more than 5 minutes to get a reward that had the original intent to reward activity in the game.  Had it actually worked on my phone, I think it would have gone a lot better (I, along with many of you I am sure, have played Flappy Bird or a spin-off and are used to this platform).  So although it was fun for the first ten minutes, I think I am going to stop playing this weekly game before I break my keyboard, laptop, and everything else in my apartment.

Stay trippy,
