P.T. Barnum's Acrobats!

P.T. BARNUM'S ACROBATS!
=======================
The Greatest Show on Earth - Straight from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus!!

VOICE ENHANCED!!

IMPORTANT!

Always be sure that the power to your Odyssey2 console is turned off before inserting a
game cartridge. This protects the electronic components and extends the life of the unit.

TO BEGIN:

1. Insert the cartridge into the slot of the Odyssey2 console or into The Voice of
Odyssey* with the label side of the cartridge facing the alpha-numeric keyboard.
  
2. Turn on the power by pressing the power button of the console. ACROBATS will
appear on your TV screen. If it does not, press the RESET key on the alpha-numeric
keyboard.

*The Voice enhances this game with timing cues, kibitzing good advice and bad advice.
To hear is to believe.

SINGLE PLAYER VERSIONS

    platform: If he lands on the high end of the teeter board,
    the other acrobat will fly into the air (The closer the first
    acrobat lands to the high end of the teeter board, the
    higher the second acrobat jumps. If he does not jump
    high enough to reach the first row of balloons, he will
    crash.)

7.  If the flying acrobat hits a balloon it will pop and give him
    a bouncing chance to pop some others. Keep moving
    the teeter board so he lands on the high end when he
    finally comes down.
