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 running 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!
In summer 2013 I broke my arm when driving a kickbike. Because I was starting to be a big Ludum Dare fan back then, I decided to participate even though I had only one usable hand to do the actual development. Fortunately the theme was “minimalism” which fitted one hand handicap perfectly. The Chameleon Run prototype was born. Since then I haven’t had much time to continue working on it, but I really liked that super simple game mechanics. One of the rules of Ludum Dare is that you should put your source code available for download. Unfortunately, it looks like that one guy just took it, changed few things and started selling it on the App Store and Google Play. Somehow I found him on Twitter and asked him to remove the game. In the end he did. Just a few weeks later I found another game. This time there were more changes in the graphics, but when you look at very small details you can tell it is the same source code. And the name of the game was “Chameleon Run”. Even right now you can probably find a game with a same name in the Google Play store, which was heavily inspired by my prototype. That’s why I decided I should continue the development and make the “real” Chameleon Run.
