Featured Level

The Whispering Woods 2 is a Woods-themed level in the second stage of Kid Chameleon. If you haven't visited this level yet, take a look at the crazy map you'd have to navigate through below. This level is pretty unique in that it presents beginning players with three challenges at once: dodging an army of enemies, instant-death platforms, and running out of time!

This is where many players will see the Armadillo for the first time, and it takes a while getting used to their charging attack. You'll probably lose a lot of hit points but don't worry, there's plenty of Iron Knight HP refills... except many of them are hidden in disguised prize blocks. This means you'll spend a lot of time jumping around, but be careful cause now you have to worry about TIME! As you hurry to complete the level, you come up to the instant-death platform section. At this point in the game, you haven't had much practice dealing with platforms like this: one wrong step and you're flattened like a pancake! As luck would have it, the only clock in the level can be found just past this section.


So is there an easier approach to this level? Well turns out, this rather trying level has one major flaw: the simple column of steel blocks between you and the flag at the very start of the level. That's right, if you start this level as Berzerker, simply charge that wall to the right and the level is done in under a second! This is most easily accomplished by arriving here through Elsewhere 5, making sure to get that Berzerker helmet and not to lose it.

Kid Chameleon 3: The Final Marathon, AKA KC3

Drios, who entered the Kid Chameleon ROM hacking scene big with his first project Heady Metal's Revenge, has yet another challenge for us - Kid Chameleon 3: The Final Marathon. It is his second mod with completely redesigned levels that aims to emulate the style of the original, sprinkled with some added challenge for more experienced players.

And that's one thing that can't be understated: this hack is HARD. Don't expect to breeze through it on your first playthrough, cause you're gonna be in for a helluva ride when those stage 4 levels roll up. If you thought the original game had a convoluted map and insane dead-end elsewheres, KC3's will surely have your head spinning. That being said, Drios is very generous to those adventurers who explore the path less traveled, so check every nook and cranny to get all the lives you can! Visually, this mod boasts many new theme, character, and enemy color palettes courtesy of Drios, including a bloodstained Maniaxe, and some lava-themed island levels. It is also the first complete mod to use original boss and platform patterns -- you might even see them move in a circular path at some points! Download Kid Chameleon 3: The Final Marathon.
