A simple arcade game (which is why it is part of the Blazing Action Collection) in which you have the task of saving a balloon or a pumpkin from a room filled with spikes. There are thirteen spikes in each of the 13 rooms and only one spike is positioned so that it is safe to place the balloon under it. This game was originally released on a Friday the 13th which is why the particular number of spikes and of rooms. While it is certainly not the most difficult game on the site, it does require that you react quickly and as the location of the safe spike is random, there is some thinking involved.
