Charlie Chaplin is a unique game, in which player takes part of the world-wide famous comic. As Charlie Chaplin player has to star in films, which are much in the line of famous black-and-white masterpieces. After scene is filmed player is given opportunity to edit it. Once every scene for the movie is filmed and edited , player is allowed to film, star in and edit a much more expensive movie (i. e. expensive script, more props and extras).

To resemble a Charlie Chaplin movie the game is deliberately executed in two-color palette.
