Vintage Video Games #11 – Kid Chameleon
Vintage Video Games #11 takes us back to 1992 to revisit what one of of the hottest platformers on the Megadrive – yes, it’s the lad with the multiple personalities ‘Kid Chameleon’.
The Story: A new virtual reality arcade game named ‘Wild Side’ has just landed in town and everyone wants to play it. The game creates a hologram world in which the player can become a part of. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary until kids started to disappear. The games’ big boss – Heady Metal has become free of his scripted AI and has been using his new found freedom to kidnap everyone that could not complete the game. That was until Casey aka Kid Chameleon came along – does he have the skills to beat every level and every boss to save the others?
Highlights: For me it would be the range of playable characters. These include a knight, a samurai, a fly and a tank!
