Spy Chameleon (Xbox One) - Review

Spy Chameleon is out now on the Xbox One and is priced at £3.99! No that isn't a typo it really is that cheap!

In Spy Chameleon you take control of a chameleon that works as a spy. Obviously. To complete your missions you must work your way through rooms filled with cameras and robot patrols to get to the exit. There are some some flies to collect along the way, as well as ladybugs after one run-through of the level. For added deployability there is also a timer to try and beat, which if you do this separately from all the collectables, is usually very easy.

The game is so simplistic. The controls are just your wiggle stick to move and the AXYB buttons all switch your chameleon to the colour depicted on the button. Incredibly simple and intuitive. The graphics are bright and colourful, and it is a really beautiful game to play. It is very addictive, and much like Ultratron which I reviewed previously, is one that you will pick up for a quick go and end up looking at the clock an hour later confused.

If you have kids then this game is sure to go down well. My son absolutely loves it, watching or playing. He usually gets a little frustrated when he has to wait to work out the best way to move forward, but with this game he was hanging back gladly, working out the best way to make it through the level and the best route to take to pick up all the flies.

I have to applaud Unfinished Pixel. The trend recently for indie games has been to price themselves way above what you would have paid on the previous gen. These guys have really put a spanner in the works with Spy Chameleon, a game that is not only one of the cheapest available on the Xbox One WITHOUT waiting for a sale but a game that is actually really good too. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't get a little enjoyment out of this game, and at less than a fiver it really is pocket change compared to many, many others.

9/10 BUY IT!
