Please help me find this game. It looks a bit like jumpman / jet set willy, but it had some oriental influences in it. You had to climb ladders to collect hats and when you collected all, you would go to the next level (a door would open / appear?). In level 2 there was a knife throwing man (like in the circus) and in later levels fat chinese blokes blowing bubbles you had to jump on to get higher. The colors of the game were magenta and pink, and I thought you had to type tophat.exe to start it. Does this ring a bell - ANYONE???? Please help me find it.

hummm. I dont know what this game is, but if you search a certain abandnware site that is also the home of an underdogs organization, there's a chance you might find it.

Thanks a lot for your clues. It turned out to be called big top - an ace game for the 80's!
