Description

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, justifying his nickname. This gives him special abilities which must be used to pass each of the game's 100+ stages. All these stages must be played in sequence without any save or password feature.
