CarneyVale: Showtime is a fun game with a bit of an addictive gameplay. Your character is shot out of a canon and there are grabbing hooks that you must activate to catch him which spins around. Time it right to release him to catch the next hook and reach the goal. Whilst he’s in the air, you can tilt the phone for more movement. Catch balloons and extra life points on the way, avoid electrical boxes. There’s more that I didn’t encounter in the demo.
