Remember back in 1982 when you were playing Circus Atari on the 2600 at your uncle’s funeral home and thinking, “Man, I wonder what this game is going to look like in 30 years?” Was that you or me? Regardless, that day has come now that Atari has announced the launch of Circus Atari for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This free, universal puzzle platformer places you in the role of a circus clown blasting out of cannons and flying through the air in a vertical climb to record heights.
In the ascent to the top of the arena, players will tilt their mobile device to guide their clown, popping balloons to launch higher while gathering power-ups and coins along the way and avoiding the many hazards and obstacles of the arena. Players can enhance their circus experience with coins, collected or purchased in-game so that players can pick up new clown characters as well as safety nets to help with performers’ high-flying antics.
Circus Atari is dompletely free-to-play with the option to purchase in-game items and customizations such as unique clowns with special attributes (convict clown, hippie clown, and I’ll stop there because it’s getting disturbing).
Avoid pitfalls, ledges and bumpers during exciting and challenging gameplay
