Circus Linux – a clone of the Atari 2600 game “Circus Atari,” produced by Atari, released in 1980. Gameplay is similar to “Breakout” and “Arkanoid”, you slide a device left and right to bounce objects into the air which destroy a wall.
“Circus Linux!” was programed using the “Simple Direct Media” layer libraries by Sam Lantinga. This means that the game can theoretically run under any environment that the SDL libraries support.
