Charadium, being all about the gameplay has a simple and handy layout - an instant messenger window and a writing slate - which have been smoothly animated and brought to life. The player draws the charade using their fingers on the touch screen while the other player has only about a minute to guess and type the word. To win the round you have to understand and type the word before the other players do. Charadium generates hints for the player during the round and a final score is given at the rounds end.
With Charadium you can enjoy a long-lasting puzzle or take a quick brain challenge. There are 2 game modes: Full Game is when you play 15 rounds one by one and Quick One is when you join someone’s Full Game at a random round and play till the end, as long as there is a free slot for the player. When the correct answer is given and a new round begins, Charadium automatically gives a new word to the players. The game supports 7 languages (EN, ES, FR, DE, PT, IT, RU) and uses 7 corresponding dictionaries. Each dictionary includes thousands (which number constantly increases) of charades, comprised of nouns only. Therefore, players are free to choose the language they want to use and will connect to players of the language chosen.
