    • Chameleon Twist NA release: 9th December 1997 JP release: 12th December 1997 PAL release: December 1997 Developer: Japan System Supply Publisher: Sunsoft N64 Magazine Score: 70% While Chameleon Twist came out in America and Europe, I played a Japanese copy with an English translation patch. The western versions seem to be based on an earlier build, perhaps sent off to the localisation teams before the game was fully ready. The Japanese version has some more challenging rooms (for example, the screenshot above is just an empty room with collectables in the other versions), the multiplayer powerups added into the main game and some unlockable characters. The story is pretty much non-existent. A regular chameleon sees the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland jumping into a pot and decides to follow, turning into the big headed thing in the game. From there, you go through the levels, killing everything in your path. When you start the game, you’ll test out the moves. The tongue is very impressive as you can move it as it extends. I was expecting lots of puzzle use with it, but unfortunately the game isn’t very inventive. The tongue is used for four moves. The first lets you swallow enemies to spit them out as bullets Then you can latch onto poles, from there, you can pull yourself towards it or spin around. Finally, you can push yourself upwards for a high jump that’s very awkward to use. You don’t gain any extra abilities and it doesn’t have the usage of Mario’s move set to keep itself interesting across the game. Being able to move the tongue seems more like something added just to combat the terrible aiming in the game. The biggest difficulty in Chameleon Twist is the camera. Moving it twists it in really strange ways and it’s very difficult to judge jumps and to target where you’re shooting. The game itself is quite simple – especially due to how few moves you have – although to get the boss rush mode, you have to find lots of the crowns hidden throughout the levels. Chameleon Twist is a nice start for a game. The game needs a bit more variety and a much better camera – hopefully these are fixed in the sequel. Remake or Remaster? An enhanced collection of the two games would be nice. Official Ways to get the game There’s no official way to play Chameleon Twist
    • Yeah, the point requirements get ridiculously high very fast Have yet to reach Ante 13, but I'm also not actively trying to go for an endless-viable build. Slowly but surely making my way through the Stakes is enough for now Doesn't mean I won't try to go for some super scores if the chance presents itself early. Hasn't happened, yet, though Still need that 100,000,000 points hand. Anyways, just won a Red Stake run with Painted Deck. Diamond Flush build, gg ez. Four more Decks for Red Stake and then it's time for Green Stake, which increases difficulty pretty drastically.
    • I was on and off this over the weekend, I've got the final 2 chapters left to do and unless something massive happens, then I can safely say that the game isn't a patch on the first part or the original. Production values are great, music is awesome but the open world sections and narrative leave a lot to be desired. It's taken 20+ hours for the narrative to start getting interesting and even then some of it just doesn't make any sense. Shame.

    • The first one (I haven't read the others) is batshit insane. Some proper old school sci-fi writing. A bit Iain Banks imo.

      It was a bit too weird for my tastes, and I heard that the rest of the series just gets weirder.
