Clowns and Balloons

Clowns and Balloons is a clone of the Atari 2600 title Circus Atari.

Rather than using a see-saw/teeter-totter to propel clowns into the air to pop overhead baloons, however, the game uses a trampoline. The analog Radio Shack joystick is important in the game, because the position of the stick reflects the position of the trampoline on the screen.

Despite the drawing on the cover art of the large monkey overhead hitting a clown with a mallet, it is merely background scenery in the actual game and does not move.
