Monty Python's Flying Circus
DOS - 1991
Description of Monty Python's Flying Circus
Monty Python’s Flying Circus is a hilarious action game based on the much more hilarious TV series of the same name starring Monty Python, UK’s best-known comedy group. You control one of “Mr. Gumbies” from the TV show who is on a quest to recover 4 parts of his brains, which decided one day to run away. (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 fly 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,” or a quick game of Breakout). The game is fun to play, easy to control, and oozes (yes, oozes) plenty of Python-esque humor (your score goes down the better you do, for example – the lower the score you have, the better).
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 movie). Highly recommended!

As a Python fan, I appreciate this game, however the repetitive, annoying music is, well, repetitive and annoying, with apparently no way to turn it off.

Amusing visuals but not very fun IMHO. The copy-protection scheme has you selecting various cheeses from the manual.
