By the same team that brought you Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Circus Caper is a rather forgettable and frustrating platformer that sees you playing as Tim, a young boy who must save his sister Judy from the clutches of the evil and creatively named Mr. Magic and his haunted circus. It's also yet another example of a Japanese licensed game being completely reskinned for the west, originally being based on the manga and anime Moeru! Oniisan (known as The Wild Burning Man internationally).

Disabled Debug Features

The Game Genie code AANNNNNY re-enables simple debugging features. During the game, you can press Start to skip the current level. Pressing A before starting a new game makes you invincible and pressing B will take you directly to the ending.

Unused Top Border

Add screenshots.

In both versions of the game, the HUD is placed at the very top of the screen, causing the top of the border to be cut off by the TV's overscan area.
