Bigtop Barney

It's big top music all the way to complement the original graphics. Four circus acts, each graded for difficulty, have three helpings available, making twelve frames in all. Considered as easy, level one of the first act has you walking a tightrope, somersaulting over chimps and through fiery hoops to earn the applause of the crowd. Clever scrolling makes it all a believable experience.

In the second act, which is in the platform idiom, note that the performing sea-lions toss around clown-destroying balls thus adding to the difficulty of collecting balloons and dodging the strongman.

Next, ride a unicycle, jumping from the saddle to bounce off platforms. Not easy when the hurdles come thick and fast.

I really enjoyed this fun package and consider it excellent, imaginative and addictive.
