We play a clown named Charlie, who must perform various tasks in six levels of the game. Collecting bags of money, performing dangerous stunts, avoiding enemies, passing levels, Charlie gets points. After passing through all six levels, the game begins again, but the gameplay becomes faster and more complex (the levels themselves remain the same). At the end of each level, Charlie must jump on the curb.
The game process is quite different in levels, we will try to briefly describe it:
Jumping through burning hoops. Charlie rides on the lion, and in the process of moving up the level must perform jumping through burning hoops.
Walking on the rope. Charlie walks along a tight rope. He is hindered by monkeys trying to push him from the rope.
Springboards. Charlie jumps from the springboard to the springboard, avoiding the fire and knives that other circus performers throw at him.
Charlie moves standing on the ball, and must jump from the ball to the ball, and also avoid various obstacles.
Flights on the trapezium. Charlie needs to jump from the trapezoid to the trapezoid. This level contains a fragment of Strauss Waltz "On the Beautiful Blue Danube".
The version of the game for the third level of NES offline "diving boards", but there are two game modes: "A" and "B" (in the mode of «B» repeated with increasing levels of complexity).
The game has many secrets and tricks, here are some of them:
- At the level with the burning hoops immediately after the start of the level, you can move to the left as far as the stop, and jump on the spot three times. After that, the first of the hoops will turn into Charlie's image. Taking this image, our hero gets an extra try. If you jump over the bowls with fire in the opposite direction, a prize coin falls out of them.
- If you collect all bags of money at the level with burning hoops, after the level is complete, a bird will fly and discard the prize coins. It is also possible at a level with jumps.
- If the jump in the opposite direction of the purple monkey at a walking the ropes, Charlie will get 5000 bonus points. Also, if you perform this in the far right edge of the level without jumping onto the platform, Charlie will receive a prize bag with money.
