NES - Circus Caper Box Art FrontNES - Circus Caper Box Art Back

The single-player, side-scrolling action game takes the player through various levels, each with a circus theme, fighting various enemies and bosses until he finally defeats the ringmaster and save his sister. The player start out in the game with little life and few weapons, but he can collect various icons to increase how many direct hits that he can withstand, keys to open doors, along with various circus items to shoot as projectiles. Many of the levels can be avoided altogether by just walking backwards and back through the curtain from where the player begins. This will take him right to that level's boss battle. Bonus levels include such fun things as guiding a bear to jump over flames, avoiding boulders in a car, using Rodan as target practice and meeting Godzilla at the circus grounds.

Additional Information

In Circus Caper you play as Tim, a fan of the "Greatest Show on Earth." One day, while you and your sister are trying to get tickets to the circus, Mr. Magic kidnaps your sister and takes her deep within the confines of the circus tent. Moving primarily from right to left, you must run, jump, hit, kick, and even fly your way through six stages of circus mayhem in order to rescue your sister.

As you progress through the game, you must get past (or beat up) flying human rockets, monkeys, upside-down clowns, vultures, a tight-rope walker, elephants, an animal trainer, a white tiger, a snake, a ghost, and other sideshow creatures bent on your destruction. Eventually, you must face Mr. Magic himself.

To give you an advantage over the evil circus performers and their trained animals, you can pick up weapons, such as hammers, soccer balls, yo-yos, and bombs. Blocks will help you jump up to places higher than you can normally reach. Throughout the course of the side-scrolling action, you'll stop to play special bonus round carnival games.
