Mit CIRCUS GAMES hat TYNESOFT ein interessantes und unterhaltsames Programm produziert, das nahtlos an die früheren Sportspiele Summer Olympiad und Winter Olympiad anschließt. Denn auch bei CIRCUS GAMES haben wir es wieder mit einem Sportprogramm zu tun, bei dem oben die Kulisse entsprechend umgearbeitet wurde. Und so erinnern nicht nur die Steuerung und der allgemeine Programmablauf, sondern vor allem natürlich auch die Grafiken stark an die beiden Vorgänger. Dies soll nun aber keinesfalls ein Vorwurf sein, nur: Irgendwie hat man nach dem ersten Einladen schon ein wenig den Eindruck, CIRCUS GAMES schon einmal gesehen zu haben. Dennoch: Das Programm ist gelungen, Fehler konnte ich nicht entdecken, und insgesamt macht es Spaß, CIRCUS GAMES zu spielen, Also dann: Hals-und Beinbruch!

The difficulty level for each event is constant across the versions: tightrope walking is quite easy, tiger training too difficult, but more importantly, none of the acts hold attention for long. Circus Games is simply too expensive for what little entertainment it offers.
If you’ve stepped up to take a look at this, the best thing you could possibly do is step right down again. If you were expecting something up to the standard of Tynesoft’s Summer and Winter Olympiad cut your losses ‘cos this isn’t it. Apart from the trapeze, which is quite fun, the events are boring, difficult to control and as playable as a broken ukulele. If you really want a fun night out at the circus, save your money when the real thing comes to town.
