Chameleon Run looks stunning. We found out about this game during GDC this year. We knew it would be coming soon, but didn’t know how soon. It turns out that this amazing color switching runner will be available April 14th.
Update: April 8th, 2016 – 1:11 AM, PST: I don’t know about you, but this was my most anticipated release this week. It felt like forever before it showed up in the Play Store. The wait is finally over! Chameleon Run is now live in the Google Play Store. The game is $2.00 to download and has no in-app purchases. The link to download the game can be found at the end of this article.
Update: March 30th, 2016 10:17am PST: For those of you who have already read this article, Noodlecake Games have put the word out that the release date for Chameleon Run has changed from April 14th to April 7th. So the game will be arriving a week earlier than expected.
Really all you have to say to me is Noodlecake Games and I am interested. You throw the running genre into the equation and you have commanded my full attention. Chameleon Run is a beautiful looking game that is being brought to Android and iOS via a collaboration between Hyperbolic Magnetism and Noodlecake Games. Hyperbolic Magnetism is an independent game studio based in Prague. The studio is comprised of Jan Split Llavsky and Vladimir Hrincar. Together, this dynamic duo has produced what is certainly one of the most aesthetically pleasing looking platforming/running games to arrive thus far this year. We can’t wait to play it and the good thing is, we don’t have too much longer to wait.
“Chameleon Run is a unique, fast and challenging autorunner with a colorful twist. Jump, switch and run through expertly crafted levels that will have you coming back for more. Your goal is to switch your color to match the ground as you run and jump from platform to platform. Sounds easy right? Well think again!” – Noodlecake Studios and Hyperbolic Magnetism
Noodlecake Games always finds great independent game studios to work with. Their great collaborations continue with Chameleon Run. Combining autorunning and color switching is not necessarily new, but what they have produced with Chameleon Run looks innovative and challenging. The chase cam perspective is one of the elements that makes this game look so fantastic. Throw in a uniquely conceived world with bold and striking colors, and you have a game that will surely test your dexterity, while you are taking in the lush visuals.
