Incredible Circus Remix provides a circus themed platform game for iOS.
Do you remember the first time you played Donkey Kong? I can’t say that I do, but I remember enjoying the climb to the top. Donkey Kong is what is known as a ‘platform’ game. This type of video game has been popular since the 80s and continues to be developed throughout the mobile landscape. A platform-based game is exactly what it sounds like – an avatar jumps between suspended platforms, avoids obstacles and reaches a goal at the end of the level, which is typically high above the starting point. Most platform games I’ve played start slowly only making you jump up to one platform. This allows you time to get used to the game play and increases in difficulty the further you go in the game. One such platform game is called Incredible Circus Remix for mobile platforms.
In Incredible Circus Remix, you play Pierre, a human cannonball. His goal in life is to become the greatest circus marvel of all time. Some of the obstacles he has to face include hungry lions, menacing fire eaters, scheming knife throwers, electric traps, fire rings, and other circus-themed hazards. To reach the top of the level, you have to slingshot Pierre through the air onto bouncing, rubber band-like platforms.
“Mastering a game goes beyond beating all the levels; it’s also about sharing high scores with friends, family and co-workers. Even if you don’t come out on top every time, you can spend hours upon hours tackling all of the achievements.”
Some of the key features include:
- 5 wacky circuses, each with its own unique personality
- 85 levels filled with imaginative obstacles
- 3 awesome power-ups to improve Pierre’s performance
- 40+ achievements
- Friend challenges for high scores
Incredible Circus Remix is a fun-filled platfomer that challenges your gaming and physics skills. With every jump you have to judge timing and direction to give Pierre his best chance at reaching the top of the level.
Incredible Circus Remix is classified as a ‘freemium’ game. It’s free to download, but has a lot of in-app purchases that can make or break the game. For example, when you start the game you choose a level and are then presented with a list of potential power-ups. You can choose no power-up, but it’s the last option in the list. If you didn’t know it was there, you could easily pass it up and end up purchasing a power-up package without needing to. There are also a lot of ads within the game. There is a top banner ad on the menu screens and then a full-page ad in between every level. I’m sure there is a way to get rid of these ads, but I have not found it yet.
I can recommend Incredible Circus Remix to anyone who enjoys platform-based games. It’s fun, has some delightful background music and sound effects and is easy to catch onto.
