Circus Charlie is an action game, originally developed and published by Konami for Arcade machines in 1984. In this game, players take a role of a circus clown trying to challenge dangerous segments inside a circus. Such events include jumping on fire rings and riding on plastic balls without touching the ground.

Aaronix brought the MSX version of Circus Charlie for the SG-1000 in Taiwan, likely without license from Sega. It was brought to South Korea as well. Due to input differences, the Keyboard control options from the MSX original were removed.

The MSX version was also ported to the Sega Master System by fans. This version retains the Keyboard control options, but is unknown if this version has SK-1100 support through the expansion port.
