Clowns & Balloons is a clone of the old arcade game Circus (1977), except with better graphics and sound. It is an arcade style game by Steve Bjork, where you control the two people holding the trampoline at the bottom of the screen, and you must keep the clown bouncing around to pop all of the balloons scrolling (in different directions) at the top of the screen. When the clown first starts bouncing, he doesn't go very high; the longer you keep him going, the higher he will bounce. You can bounce the clown off the walls too; but not off the floor (you lose a life at that point). One cute thing about the game is that plays little blips of circus style music each time you complete popping a row of balloon; this also gives you a small breather.
