Exploring the center of the earth and taking an iPhone break can now be one in same with the Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon app. This picturesque game from creator Tim Fishlock & Explore and Create takes the basic principles of such linear platformers as "Fly Ribbon" (one of the first ever cell phone games) and combines it with brilliantly imaginative artwork.

Reminiscent of "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth," Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon plays out like a scientific expedition into a child's imagination. The visual integrity of the artwork lends credibility to the bizarre creatures and elevates the animation from cartoonish to enchanting.

Take your next coffee break in a brilliant new environment and be amazed at what you'll encounter next. Stats for Fantastical Journey Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
