Going to be tough balancing these two clowning gigs. 🙂 The closest thing to this game that I've played before is probably C64's thematically similar "Bigtop Barney". Much learning to do!

Mr. Do! and Circus Charlie are clown chums like you say. They're both very interesting games, with plenty of strategy and technique. Checked out Bigtop Barney, and the two games we are playing are much, much, much, much better than the C64 game.  Time to clown around in the arcade ... 🤡

The makers of Circus Charlie were obviously huge motorcycle fans.

The default scoreboard initials are all motorbikes that were around the time this game was released.

When you say 'must be played from the beginning of the game', what do you mean exactly?

When you play a game, you put in a credit, and play from the start. This was to avoid gamers playing from a continued game as one credit. There are sometimes special game rules as well. So for Circus Charlie, you just play after hitting 1UP ... 🤡

Cool, wasn't sure if it meant you had to start on 'easy' first or not
