Flicky arrives to pick them up, and everyone holds hands and gets ready to go home. But… Oh, no! It’s Tiger, that mean old cat! Jump to get away, then smack him with a hammer or a mug. Get all the Chirps home so you can rest easy, Flicky.

Kid Chameleon: Kid Chameleon, the hero with nine faces, stars in this side-scrolling action game set in the world of holograms. Use the special powers of nine different helmets to beat over 100 levels!
