Monty Python's Flying Circus: The Computer Game (referred to simply as Monty Python's Flying Circus in the game itself) is a 1990 scrolling shoot 'em up computer game developed by Core Design. It was released by Virgin Games for various computer formats including the Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64,[1] Amstrad CPC[2] and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.[3] It is loosely based on material and characters from the 1970s British comedy series Monty Python's Flying Circus, in particular the Gumby character.

Contemporary reviews of the game were mixed,[4] ranging from relatively high (89% for the Atari ST reissue from Zero magazine)[5] to poor (47% for the Commodore 64 version from Zzap 64).[1]
