Monty Python’s Flying Circus is a hilarious action game based on the much more hilarious TV series of the same name starring UK’s best-known comedy group. You control one of the “Mr. Gumbys” from the TV show, on a quest to recover the four parts of his runaway brains. (If you have never seen a Monty Python skit, none of this would make any sense. Actually, even if you did, they wouldn’t make sense anyway :)). Mr. Gumby typically flies across various screens, throwing fish at flying feet and other surrealistic enemies from the series. Your objective for each level is to reach “an argument”: a mini-game that changes from level to level. (Most employing non-sequiturs that Monty Python fans will appreciate, such as a lesson on the larch tree or a quick game of Breakout).

The game is fun to play, easy to control, and oozes (yes, oozes) Python-esque humor (your score goes down the better you do, for example). Monty Python fans certainly can appreciate the humor and references to the series, but the game is a lot of fun even if you’ve never heard of them (and if you haven’t, you owe it to yourself to watch the group’s incredibly funny Quest For The Holy Grail as well). Highly recommended!
