An adorable game both musically and visually, Circus Charlie has players entering six events, each of which involves walking or swinging from left to right while executing a series of timed jumps. Monkeys, rings of fire, circus performers, knives, and other obstacles must be dealt with throughout. Events include Fire Rings, Tightrope, Ball Walk, Horseback, Trampoline, and Flying Trapeze. To maximize scores, players should move as swiftly as possible and execute super jumps to grab bonus money. Monotony sets in after a few rounds of play, but younger children should enjoy. For a better, more adventurous take on this type of game, try Cabbage Patch Kids: Adventures in the Park for the ColecoVision or Pitfall for multiple home platforms. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
