Nevertheless, Circus Atari is a favorite of mine, and is a refreshing change from Breakout and not merely a slight rehash. There's enough here to satisfy any ball-and-paddle fanatic, and reason enough to get a real Atari to play it on (since an emulator can't exactly replicate the controllers, can they?)

Plus it never gets old watching a clown bite the dust. This has got to be THE only game that I can think of on any platform where I don't get mad whenever I lose a life. :)

The balloons are just rows of moving squares, but the tiny, square-headed clowns look funny, especially when they splatter on the ground, legs still kicking.

Overall, this game is a reasonably good alternative to Breakout or Super Breakout if you want something just a little different. Like Breakout and Super Breakout, this game requires a paddle controller, which might be a turnoff to a few, but it should not be a big deal to most fans of the Atari 2600. It also has enough different game modes to last a while. The game is quite common as well, so it should not be hard or expensive to find. Despite it being a clone, you could do far worse than to add this game to your collection.
