The Balloon minigame
“Who knows when the balloon will pop in this super high-pressure game! Wait until the balloon is full before passing the Form Baton to the next player to turn the pressure up! But make sure not to pop it! The games might seem tame, but be careful not to drop the Form Baton or hit anyone around you!
WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Balloon is a multi-player minigame in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. It is unlocked after playing Lifeline once. Each player plays as a Mii.


The game plays very similar to Balloon Bang in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, in which one player plays microgames whilst the opponents are inflating a balloon. Before the microgame starts, the current player can inflate the balloon in the time given. While a microgame is in action, the other players automatically inflate the balloon. The player plays microgames until they win one, at which point they swap with the next player who must then do the same. When the balloon becomes close to exploding, an alarm goes off and the screen flashes with a red tint. The player who is holding the Form Baton when the balloon explodes loses.
