Don’t be misled by the title: there are no clowns in this game. Well, at least not the type of clowns that you remember as a kid. You know what I’m talking about: those velvet paintings your mom and dad used to buy from the mall, which all had clowns that looked like demonic versions of Red Skelton‘s famous alter ego stolen from Rod Serling‘s Night Gallery. Their effect on you was so severe that each time you did go to a real circus you had the same feeling come over you as you do now watching Dateline NBC: To Catch a Predator. No amount of cotton candy and snow cones could ever calm you down. Not that it should since they contain more sugar than sugar. Anyway, so what can you expect from iCircus Robot if not scary clowns? How about a smooth highly-stylized 2D side-scrolling game the likes of which is rarely seen in the App Store? Very much paying tribute to arcade games of old, you play as a robot that needs to jump through or over obstacles. Using the accelerometer, tilt to one side or the other to move, while timing finger taps on the screen to perform the jumps. Kinda reminiscent of Nintendo‘s Donkey Kong in some ways, my only criticism of this game is that it currently only has four missions. But considering the quick increase in difficulty as you do progress, it lasts a lot longer than you think. Plus, there is the promise of more to come. Price: 99¢.
