Don’t let the comic look fool you. Being a good RGB agent requires a lot of talent.

Following Review By YellowLab On Steam
Spy Chameleon is a puzzle game where you are a chameleon who has five missions to conduct “spy-like” actions: take some pictures of a famous person, steal secrets, hack a computer system. Each mission has 14 levels leading up to that end of mission level. In each level you must stealthily make your way to the end collecting flies along the way. Once you reach the end, another play through will show some ladybugs, usually in hard to reach locations, that you can grab as a snack.
As a chameleon, you have the ability to change color to blend into your surroundings. Early on this isn’t required, but later in the game, you will need to move from colored location to colored location avoiding the light cones of the guards.
While the game is technically a puzzle game, if I had to classify it I would call it a top down platformer – if there is such a thing. In order to do more than burn through the level, i.e. speed run or grab the ladybugs, timing and color switching (by pressing buttons like you would jump with a platformer) with precision. I only played through the normal levels. The developers had to add a normal setting because too many people were complaining about the difficulty of the original (now called hard) default setting.
Don’t let the cartoony graphics fool you – this isn’t a child’s game. It may appeal to puzzle players (there is no penalty for getting caught other than the timer keeps going) and to platform players.
