A pretty exciting game!


Don't worry, I have the original Circus Atari through Atari's Greatest Hits app, but this is a really exciting game! Good thing I made 6000+ about a week ago, because they added monkeys to the game! I have to say, one of the sounds is EXACTLY like the one those "creepy 'Wimpanzees'" make in the Tiny Zoo Friends app!

No Splat = No Fun

Mister Mike 187

This game makes you jump through all sorts of "freemium" hoops before you start playing. No, I do not want notifications from "Circus Atari!" The game bears little resemblance to the Atari 2600 version, and when you finally die, the stupid clown doesn't even land on his head and go splat! Uninstall.

Light fun


Circus Atari is good light fun. Takes only a few minutes to play, so it's a good option for something quick if you have only a few minutes. It's like Atari's version of Doodle Jump.
