Inspired by early arcade titles like Clowns and Circus, P.T. Barnum's Acrobats! lets players control a seesaw that slides horizontally at the bottom of the screen. Acrobats leap on the seesaw launching them skyward, where they pop three rows of balloons. Game variations allow for an alternating number of players, stationary or moving balloons, and/or platforms that block the acrobats' ascent. During play, The Voice module shouts random exclamations like "Great!, "Amazing!," and "Help!" The game ends when ten acrobats miss the seesaw, getting squashed. Although it could have used a paddle controller, the game is still enjoyable, and addictive. ~ William Cassidy, All Game Guide
