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).
