Quoted from VolunteerPin:
On the youtube video I watched the guy entered a "Follow the Leader" video mode and it did take forever and it wasn't clear by the video if the guy was actually interacting or not. I actually fast-forwarded to the end of it to get back to the game play. It probably took a solid couple of minutes.
Quoted from Captive_Ball:
That isn't on the home rom...thank goodness. Kills the gameplay, IMO
I like the amazing Roonie...and people that come over to play think it's tits
Actually, this mode *is* on the home ROM, and not on the production ROM. I think you can disable it, and you can definitely cut it short by randomly hitting the flippers.
CV is a fairly straightforward and very fun game IMO, with great ball movement--the orbits, fast loop around the Ringmaster, menagerie ball, side pops and disappearing pop. The dots are great in this game, and progress is fairly straightforward: complete all 9 marvels to reach the Join the Cirqus mode. Not that easy to get if the game is set up well. Stacking is fun, witha possible stacking of 3 MBs together if you're careful. (I read that you could stack 4 but I don't think so--can't start Juggler once High Wire etc. are started, unless its a weird glitch!)
There's a 'hidden' Ringmaster Battle mode that can give you tons of points (or moderate points if menu settings are adjusted), and the JtC has 3 stages to complete before getting to the party multiball. There is some variation in which 3 modes you get in the home ROMs, which is cool.
The game is colorful and plays smooth as butter when dialed in. FOr some reason, the flippers on my CV feel better and give more control than in any other pin I've ever played. (Even more odd, this is still true after I switched the stock flippers to purple ones.) All original parts, as I bought my CV NIB back when....
Not a lot come up for sale because of the low production. Some people love the game, some don't. It's a keeper for me with the smooth ball movement, excellent flippers, and it's a fun game that's not too deep nor too simple.
