A graphic masterpiece with each and every aspect finely detailed. In addition there are considerably more scripts than on the 8-bit offerings with an option to save movies onto disk and even a little music during the public showing. If playability had been better this would have been a very good game.
Just Games Retro
The game really does an excellent job of recreating the look and spirit of Chaplin’s films, but it’s disappointing that the gameplay consists solely of endlessly performing the exact same routine. Even accepting this isn’t a movie production sim, it would have been great to have Chaplin do more for laughs, or play up the slapstick with interactive props to trip and stumble over. Unquestionably, Chaplin kicked a few shins and kissed a few women on the silver screen, but that wasn’t all he did. Unfortunately, it’s all you’ll do in his game.
Power Play
Ich kann mir lebhaft vorstellen. wie dieses Programm entstanden sein könnte: Zunächst hatte jemand die Idee, mal ein Computerspiel rund um Charlie Chaplin herauszubringen. Danach hat die Softwarefirma die (sicher nicht ganz billige) Lizenz gekauft. 14 Tage vor dem geplanten Veröffentlichungstermin hat dann jemand den Programmierern auf die Schulter geklopft und gemeint: „Jetzt macht mal, Jungs“ - das Spielprinzip ist jedenfalls entsprechend lausig geraten. Die MS-DOS-Version verblüfft zunächst mit flotter Musik und sehr schöner Cartoon-Grafik. „Starring Charlie Chaplin“ hatte ein spannendes Spiel rund um die Film-Industrie werden können, doch es ist leider nur ein aufwendig verpackter. müder Geschicklichkeits-Langweiler, ein Fall für den Disketten-Reißwolf.
