Circus Linux! is a cross-platform clone of the Atari 2600 game Circus Atari.

Software Santa LOVES his Copy! A Software Santa Pick!

"Circus Linux!" is a clone of the Atari 2600 game "Circus Atari," produced by Atari, Inc. (which is itself a clone of an earlier arcade game named, simply "Circus").

The object is to move a teeter-totter back and forth across the screen to bounce clowns up into the air. When they reach the top, they pop rows of balloons and then fall back down.

(The gameplay is similar to the classics "Breakout" and "Arkanoid.")

    Game Modes:
        One- and two-players
        Two-player cooperative
        Barriers mode
        Bouncy balloons mode
        Clear-all mode

        Colorful, cartoon-like images
        Animated objects and background
        Nearly 70 objects on screen at once
        Fullscreen mode
        Random circus acts in the background

        Upbeat circus-style music
        Many cartoonish sound effects
        Sound and music volume controls

        Real Atari 2600 Paddle controllers!
