"99 Red Balloons" by Nena

Question 99 of The Impossible Quiz 2 features differently coloured balloons flying upwards through the screen. There's a small red circle in the top right corner of the screen that starts at zero. You will see red, blue and green balloons, as well as a black evil-looking balloon with fire on its lower part. There is no task on screen at all.

Your task here is to pop 99 red balloons only by touching them with your mouse. The counter on the top right corner will rise with each balloon you pop. Be careful, though, because the rest of the balloons have bad effects:

  • If you burst a blue balloon, you will lose a life (though it counts as a pop for the red balloon counter, and it's not a glitch).
  • If you burst a green balloon, the counter will go down by 1 unit.
  • If you touch an explosive rocket, you will get an instant Game Over.

You also have to avoid clicking anything in this question, since trying to click will take a life away from you. This applies even if you try to use a Skip, which will work, but it will still make you lose a life.

Once you have reached 99, a brief part of the song "99 Red Balloons" will play in the background, as the 99 from the top right corner moves to the middle of the screen flashing, and the words 'RED BALLOONS' appear below it. These will both collapse shortly afterwards, and you'll proceed to the next question.

Mobile version

Question 99 (iOS)



10 seconds



Either because of its mechanism or because of the inclusion of the song "99 Red Balloons" (or both), this question had to be replaced by a completely new one in the iOS release of The Impossible Quiz 2. The new Question 99 says "What is the shortest distance between these two points?", and below it there's a line with two big dots, one on each of its ends. The options you're given are "Straight line", "Zig-zag", "Curve" and "3.6 miles", and there's a 10-second bomb as well.

While it could have been "Straight line" because it's the shortest way of joining the dots, or even "3.6 miles" which is the only one that tries to measure it, the truth is that none of the options is correct. All you have to do here is to drag the second dot to the left and put it in the exact same spot as the first one, which is the shortest distance there could ever be between both, and you'll proceed to the next question.
