When a train's light comes on, it means that the train is approaching a balloon. Reverse its direction fast!


The players have to point their cursor at their trains, so that they will not pop their colored balloons. If a train gets near a balloon, its siren will go off. There are 3 balloons and trains each; the players have to compete until one player pops 3 of his/her balloons, resulting in a win for the opponent. The trains will stop moving once they pop a balloon. It is also impossible for a player to pop his/her opponent's balloons, as the player has to pop his/hers first. The burst balloons and trains will start moving again sometime after making contact. thumb|300px|right
