Other than monochrome graphics the only real difference between Spectrum Circus Games and the 16-bit versions is that the tiger training takes place over a single screen, with only three tricks to perform. However, limitations of the gameplay in general are compounded by the obligatory cassette multiload, and its appeal is even more short lived than that of its relatives.
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 thought those endless Christmas circus specials were boring, then be assured this is even worse. Blobby sprites, poorly drawn backdrops and repetitive gameplay make for a show that never seems to end. I hope Superman is better.
