Have you ever wanted to join the circus? If so, step right up to Circus for the Atari 2600. There are no lions or elephants in this circus, but there are a couple of clowns and some red, white and blue balloons.
Your job is to pop the balloons, which appear in a wall at the top of the screen, by bouncing the two clowns off of a teeter-totter. You maneuver this teeter-totter, which slides left and right near the bottom of the playfield, with the paddle controller.
You can catch the clowns on any part of the teeter-totter, except for the section where the other clown is sitting. If you let a clown get by, he crashes to the ground. Then, another clown bounces into the action from a trampoline along the sidelines. When you are out of clowns, the game is over. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
