Kid Chameleon is a side-scrolling platform game in which the main character has entered a virtual reality game called "Wild Side" to free the other kids inside that have been captured. He can change his shape into various other forms (hence the "Chameleon"). This gives him special abilities which must be used to pass each of the game's 100+ stages.

I loved this game growing up. Granted, I was never actually good at it or could get very far but it was one of my favorite games as a kid. Side scrolling game with lots of levels, different power ups where you can even have become a tank! Thats pretty awesome. The games very challenging and very difficult as were many games of that era so it can be a little tough for new comers,even more so as it was one of the harder games back then but its worth a try. A lot of older games should be played to see how kids in the 90's played and what they had to go through .
One of my all time faves!Numbi | Sept. 28, 2013 | See all Numbi's reviews »
This and Ristar is one of the reasons why I bought the Sega Megadrive Classics pack but to be honest I would buy this game on its own in a heartbeat as well. It is one of those classic era games that has lost none of its challenge and charm. The visuals are very cool with a ton of different sprites for the main character. These transformations impact the gameplay as well making for a nice all round challenging platformer. Still one of my all time favorites.

As the review's title suggests, Kid Chameleon is a platforming game built around a system of power-ups found in boxes. Unlike Super Mario World which cut the number of powers though, Kid Chameleon expands on the idea, giving you many, many hats to play around with. For example, you have the knight helmet which provides extra health and makes you heavy enough to break blocks beneath you.
While Kid Chameleon has no world map, the game has a ridiculous amount of levels and secrets to find, including secret levels within secret levels. Platforming veterans will find a good challenge here too as the early levels quickly lead into many perils from fiery pits with difficult jumps, to having to avoid advancing walls of death.
Kid Chameleon is a game that will provide loads of entertainment for you, requiring several plays to see all the levels it has to offer, as well as finding the best routes to reach the end of the game. The game could have used some sort of mapping feature to make it easier to figure out if you're actually moving forward, but it also makes discovering a new exit all the more exciting, making you wonder what's next. Try it today, because it's a fine example of the 80's/90's platformer craze.
A good challengeLippe1989 | Dec. 26, 2012 | See all Lippe1989's reviews »
This game is diffucult, very difficult. But you know, everything that is more difficult will reward you in the end. It is also give you more excitement and makes you pleased when you get your objectives, your goals. Well, this game is simple, with a simple gameplay. Difficult is get the final. The gameplay only gives you a few options that will depends on what mask you will be using. Without mask you jump, as a samurai you use a sword, as rino you break things with head, as skull tank you shoot with skulls and the others masks follow what I am saying. But there are moments that you have to choose what mask is better to continue the level. It is complicated. Other moments you will have to decide what portal is better to enter. It can send you to a previous level for example. That is why something we get tired. But the game is very good and if you are looking for classics from 16bit I think that you must play this game.
A very difficult game but also one of the best from the pastantonioli84 | Dec. 24, 2012 | See all antonioli84's reviews »
This game is one of my favourite games of 16 bit era. But I have to say that is one of most difficult in my opinion. The story appearns most in the beggining. A boy going to a place with a kind of virtual videogame and something happens that he enters in the virtual world of the game. It is crazy. After it you will have more action. Basically action. The boy only can jump. The mechanics is very simple and and also the gamplay. During the game you will discover a lot of masks and these masks give you a kind of power. That is the spetacular thing of the game. On give you a kind of Jason mask that has a axe that can be throwed. Another is a rino that can destroy things. Another one is a samurai mask giving you a sword. Another is a kind of fly that make you "fly". Very interesting for real. But as I said before, the game is very difficult. There are a lot of levels and if you go to the wrong place you can come back some levels or do not go where you can to advance more. But it is a game that challenges you a lot. It is satisfying when you advance fighting a lot. I recommend this game a lot.
