The top screen scrolls, and only shows stars and Balloons in a repetitive pattern. The lower screen shows an animated sprite of the Balloon Fighter flying. The animation plays at the speed that the user scrolls.
The music that plays in the home menu is the Balloon Trip or Bonus Stage music from the original game. When the Balloon Fighter's hand goes fully up in the animation, a Balloon popping sound plays. Upon awakening the system from sleep, the "new life" jingle plays. Selecting options in various menus plays the Giant Bubble pop jingle. Opening an application plays the Balloon Bird defeat jingle.
