Step right up to the ACRO-BATiest show on earth!
The madman industrialist Edgar Ektor has seized control of the World of Amusement. He and a deranged cast of fairground freaks threaten the circus. The only hope for survival is the high-flying, death-defying Aero the Acro-Bat!
Spine-tingling terror unfolds as AERO tackles Ektor's wicked henchmen. Bungee jump into a battle with evil! Skydive in Mode 7 toward the danger below! Hang on for the ride of your life as you rise and plunge on a roaring roller coaster! Tiptoe across a terrifying tightrope! Then power drill and twist AERO right through every sinister circus enemy imaginable. And all the while, the show must go on!
It could become a carnival of carnage in the World of Amusement. Because the evil Ektor isn't clowning around... and there's nothing amusing about that.
