Oh no! I can't believe that I never heard of this popular Saturday Night Sketch until recently and now my woeful lack of familiarity of 70-80's late-night sketch show trivia has let me down. Never mind, I'm sure I'll pick things up as I go as Mr.Bill from Capcom puts this pop culture creation in to his very own game.
And in typical fashion things aren't looking so good for Mr.Bill and his family as they try to deal with the poor job climate by taking up Sluggo's offer of working at a Circus and a Farm. Mr.Bill has been employed as a human cannonball at the circus and you'll need to keep him safe from all the dangerous hazards in your way before running out of energy to keep yourself afloat. It's a careful balance that will require precise timing and a few repeat attempts to get down pat, especially on later harder levels once you move over to Sluggo's farm.
Instead of going for a clay-mation style with the visuals, Capcom have simplified things with clean colorful cartoon designs that try to emulate the Mr.Bill world. And yes, many of the classic lines and themes of the Mr.Bill sketch have filtered their way in to the game, so even heathens like myself who have never experienced Mr.Bill before now can quickly catch up.
While 28 levels may not seem like a lot, surviving them can take some time to master and even once you're done there are special achievements that require far more finesse to complete as well. Coupled with two endless modes (and a third on the way), Mr.Bill is a great bargain and lots of fun to boot.

The good news is that the Sluggo Employment Agency just found you a new job. The bad news is that it’s as a human cannonball for Sluggo Big-Time Circus.
Guide Mr. Bill through a series of disaster-filled jobs and dozens of fun-filled levels. Stay aloft until you reach your destination by bouncing off trampolines, dangling from balloons and getting shot into the air by a trained seal all while avoiding all manner of unpleasant obstacles. If you survive the circus you’ll report for work at Sluggo’s farm where the hay bailer is the least of your problems..
- Wonderfully irreverent gameplay inspired by the misadventures of the late night character.
- Hours of gameplay with two modes of play - a story mode and an endless mode where your goal is to stay aloft as long as possible.
