Circus

Post by Tex »

I'm looking for an old old game I used to play a long time ago. It's called something with circus, Can't remember any more than that, but hopefully someone will have a tip for me...

First thing that comes in mind with 'circus' and ol' game is
Circus Maximus.

Could you at least state about WHAT the game was if it's not that?

Hmmmm, Abyss had a topic about the ZX Spectrum version somewhere ...
Don't remember where that one is.

I think the character you play is a clown, and you go from one end of the level to the other, shooting things... I haven't played it in about 13-15 years, so my memory is a bit shot...

There exist a PC version of that one, QBasic I thought.

Circus Atari is a bit far fetched and you don't play as a 'clown shooting things'

I have no idea personally, I was thinking Maths Circus to begin with but no.

Have a browse here. http://www.the-underdogs.info/search.ph ... ame=circus

ORLY?
Mobys about circus atari wrote:Use the controller to move the teeter-totter across the screen to catch the clowns. Each time a clown pops a balloon, the balloon will disappear and you score points. Each player receives five clowns or turns. If you fail to catch a clown on the teeter-totter he will crash and disappear from the playfield.
:suspicious:
I know they don't look as clowns those things, but they are meant to be clowns.

B) Thanks for having me guys. N'aw. *mushy moment*

It's weird to think about stuff like that...When i got locked out i was all - "but...but...dgf is my home away from home...i've known these guys longer than i've known most people in RL..."

Hmm...that's kind of sad. I think i need to work on getting some permanent friends...

Anyways. Thanks for fixing it. :)
