The player must pop fifty balloons. Throughout the test, all the balloons will float away if they are not popped quickly enough. Some balloons move in circles, making them more difficult to pop. Once all balloons in a group are popped, the next group appears.

First area

The player starts on a platform separate from the rest of the stage, with a launchpad that leads to the main platform. Upon landing, three balloons will appear. Directly ahead on the other side of the grate, a single balloon will appear.

Second area

Ahead four balloons will appear, as well as one to the left. Going forward will not lead to another part of the stage, so it is recommended to pop the group of four before the singular balloon. After popping all five balloons, six balloons will appear forward of the singular balloon, which are above Sanitized Octowashers.

Directly ahead are a group of eight balloons arranged in a rectangle. Afterward, a single balloon spawns to the right.

Third area

Use the Bounce Pads behind the wall to reach the balloon, depending on your weapon of choice, and hop over the wall to a set of eight balloons. After popping the balloons, move to your right to find a single balloon. Upon popping, to your left, three balloons will appear. After popping, one balloon will appear, and an Octowasher will be present again. Beyond the Octowasher is a second balloon, and after popping, leads to a single balloon that spawns four balloons when popped. Continue on after the four and pop the three balloons that appear one after the other, using the Gusher to reach the third. After popping, at your right, three balloons will appear, one alone, then the other two together. After being popped, jump down to the next balloon in the lowest area. Upon being popped, three balloons will be present behind crates. There will then be one balloon that will float along the path, and after popping, will spawn another balloon past two Bounce Pads and an Octowasher. Past that, two balloons will spawn in past two Octowashers going in circles. Once popped, go past a wall of crates to the final balloon.

Hmm, Slosher? Inkbrush? Curling Bomb?
I'd gladly browse for hours and hours;
Your gushing ramble brings me calm.

Completing this test awards the player with the Sheldon mem cake.

C.Q. Cumber's Quotes

Cap'n Cuttlefish's Quotes

Halfway there - stay focused!

Marina's Quotes

Just a few left - get it done!

Pearl's Quotes

The balloons are escaping! Hurry!
Ten to go!




The subtitle, "The fun don't stop!", is a reference to the Pringles slogan "Once you pop, the fun don't stop".

"Popalicious" may be a combination of the Pringles slogan and the word "delicious". The "Pop-" may also be referring to the balloons that are popped in this level.

Translation notes

  1. "Opschieten" is also a pun on "op schieten" (to shoot at).
  2. "Knalfuif" comes from "knallen" (to pop) and "fuif" (party). Using "knal-" as a prefix in words is used to intensify it in a positive way.
