Fiendish Freddy's Big Top O' Fun

Running a circus isn't the easiest job in the world, especially if you have to put up with a rival the likes of which appears in this Amstrad conversion of the hilarious 16-bit multi-eventer which we awarded a Hit a while back.

The acts range from high diving, which starts with you jumping into a barrel of water, and finishes with a leap into a tea-cup, to dangerous high wire-walking. All the way through, you must beware the deadly clown Fiendish Freddy, who will stop at nothing to put you out of business and into plaster!

Amstrad Fiendish Freddy is a surprisingly accurate conversion with lots of colourful, humorous graphics, some of which (like the diving artist) are enormous! Unfortunately there wasn't room for any sound, which may put people off buying the game, but if I were you I'd at least have a good, long think about adding this neat little circus sim to your collection.


Funny as well as challenging. Wear a corset while playing Fiendish Freddy lest your sides split!
