BACKSTORY
Deep in the equatorial rainforest’s swamps, Charlie the chameleon lies in weight for the next meal. But basking out in the sun all day is tiring work so Charlie falls asleep and dreams of eating flies and of the next meal coming.

Instructions
You play as Charlie the Chameleon; your objective is to guide Charlie around the swamp jumping from branch to branch to eat the flies. To jump on a red branch, Charlie needs to be red. To jump on a blue branch Charlie needs to be blue, and to jump on a green branch, you need to change Charlie’s colour to green.
Each level is timed, with a 10 second penalty for falling off a branch, and three lives to complete the game. You lose a life when your time runs out.
