Bloons (or Bloons 1) is a single-player browser game (a flash game) about a monkey popping bloons. Many bloons have special powers. You can choose from a set amount of darts, or unlimited darts mode. Unlimited darts will make it easy to win but not give you score so be warned if you want to beat your high score. Bloons 2 was released after "1276 days and 1,063,118,911 plays" of the original Bloons. This was the first Bloons game ever made.
They are 7 special bloons in addition to 4 differently coloured regular bloons.
- Regular bloons, takes 1 hit to pop, no special abilities.
- Ice Bloon, freezes all bloons around it so the player can't pop the others.

- A glitch occasionally allows to pop Bonus Dart Bloons, Triple Dart Bloon or Boomerang Bloons by making the dart pass through a Metal Block (when the bloon is surrounded by blocks in any side).
- When right-clicking and clicking the "Rewind" button, the game will reset, however the monkey and the bloons will still be there and you can't pop them, nor use the monkey, but you can only pop bloons and use the monkey of the current level when you are playing a level. Refreshing the page can solve this problem. (link to video)
- This happens on all Bloons Games excluding Bloons Junior. When a Pac-Man Bloon is popped and the player clicks main menu before it runs out, the Pac-Man will still be there and it can still go anywhere around the main menu before the time runs out. (link to video)
- This happens occasionally in some Bloons World levels. When there are more than 130 Bomb Bloons, only some of them will pop, then they suddenly freeze and then explode. There is no exit from this glitch other than closing your browser. (link to video)
