Find Ballicopter's key on the keyboard (Spacebar).
This is the only active key in this game.

When the game starts, Ballicopter flies high up in the sky over the fields of Ballyland.
Press Ballicopter's key to make him land.
Press Ballicopter's key again to let him take off again.
Listen out for the animals that meet him when he lands.
If you are in luck, you will hear the duck.
The game will be different every time you play it.
