  • DAFFODIL "MEDAL OF HONOR" STAMP: Retainers of this passport achievement stamp can complete the game in about 2 hours if they know what they are doing and are awarded a lower score bonus. Ed says, "BLIMPS can be completed in about 13 minutes if you are a good hacker and know what you are doing, but you will not get the Daffodil 'No cheat codes used' achievement stamp low score bonus."

BLIMPS also features unique sound fx and an instrumental soundtrack performed by the band Ashtronaut.

BLIMPS can be played on a tablet/finger/pencil or keyboard/mouse device. In addition, it features partial gamepad controller support (if you want to fly around the world of BLIMPS "twin-stick shooter style.")

Pay once to get the whole BLIMPS experience. BLIMPS contains no ads, in-app purchases, or in-game data collection. Instead, it is just an old-school stand-alone offline family-friendly video game. Rated E for "Everyone."
