- TOUCH SCREEN MECHANICS: Use just two thumbs to control the acrobats, dodge obstacles, change rings, jump and slap but dont expect it to be easy to win.
- A RING-FORMER: Keep moving as the platforms are rings where its too fast to stop, too risky to turn around and your only option is to keep moving and let the show go on.
- CIRCUS STARS: Watch out for elephants, lions, magicians, monkeys, motor-bike riders, strongmen and more, all under one big tent.

These $4 price points always seem to drop to 1/2 price quick like Incredipede, Level 22, and this, well, wish it had released at $2, would have bought it, but now got too many games this week for now to handle.
