The aim of Word Circus is to connect words and images. The game can be played in three different levels of difficulty, where the words in the easiest level are read aloud, the middle level are presented as text, and in the most difficult one the text is scrambled. Select the right image by dragging it up into the frame above the images. If you are unsure about what the correct image is, you can wait as the wrong images are slowly removed. If you get a cannonball, you can shoot it at one of your opponents and confuse them by getting their images to rotate.
