Bloons Festive Fun was a Christmas-themed version of Bloons (iPhone/iPod Touch Game). The game would unlock 3 levels everyday until Christmas, similar to an advent calendar, although there were 31 days instead of just 25. Every set of three levels beaten would unlock a trophy. These trophies could be used to decorate the house.[1] If all trophies were collected within the 31 days of levels, an in-game Christmas scene would have been unlocked.[2]

The game was pulled off the iOS App Store on January 1st, 2010.[1] However, the game was re-released on December 1, 2010 and updated to 1.1 before being taken down again. [3] It never rereleased after that, likely due to the success of Bloons TD 4 and subsequent entries providing little incentive to rerelease Festive Fun.

While promotional material displays Seven Squared and Shapes as a level, Seven Squared is actually the first and fifth level of Pack 2 in Bloons iOS, respectively, and do not show up in this game at all.[4] Level 1 is Reindeer, and Level 5 is Axe The Tree.

On 4/15/2023, the game was uploaded to Archive.org.

Differences Between Bloons iOS and Festive Fun[]

  • Several special Bloons from the main game were given festive reskins:
  • Introduction of the the Pacman Bloon as the Reindeer Bloon. The player controls the reindeer by swiping the screen, which lasts 6 seconds, and can also pop frozen bloons.
  • The in-game music is a rendition of Jingle Bells instead of "Tater Tots".
  • There is a "go inside" button leading to the Christmas Scene, showcasing trophies earned by beating levels.
  • Different set of levels. Despite what the app store screenshots imply, there are no levels equivalent between Festive Fun and Bloons iOS.
  • Levels originally required the player to wait for the matching December day to arrive before levels would unlock. This does not apply if the time is set to the year 2010 or higher.
  • Using Unlimited Darts does not have a visual indicator on beaten levels that indicate they beat it with Unlimited Darts.
  • Level Editor and Golden Bloon are not included.
  • Lack of separate save slots or delete save file options.

History[]

Bloons Festive Fun was announced on 9th of November 2009 on the Ninja Kiwi blog, and on December 1, 2009, Bloons Festive Fun was released. [5] It was planned from the start to be a limited time release, and was removed on 1st of January 2010. According to a forum post by Digital Goldfish, there was an exploit that opened all days of levels on 29th of December, 2009. Bloons Festive Fun was rereleased on 1st of December, 2010, and the exploit was reportedly fixed. [7] In that thread, a forum user claims Chris from Ninja Kiwi said in an email that the game was "flawed in design and execution". Bloons Festive Fun would be removed from the app store on 1st of January, 2011, and would never be rereleased.

On 15th of April, 2023, the game was uploaded onto Archive.org, letting people that never played the game originally play Bloons Festive Fun, provided that the user has an iOS 10 or below device.

  • As of April 15, 2023, Bloons Festive Fun was uploaded to the internet, thus there is now no more offline lost media within the Bloons series, excluding updates of said games, or online features/titles such as Bloons World and Bloons Blast.

Trivia[]

  • The large colored image in the house scene is promotional material for Bloons TD iOS/DSi/PSN. The small, black and white photo appears to be the black and white photograph of the wedding scene in Hot Air Bloon iOS.
    • This technically makes this the first appearance of the Damsel Monkey. She also appears as the level select icon for selecting the 12th day on the Advent Calendar.
