Spy Chameleon • Complete the fly challenge on 15 levels • Bronze Trophy • Rarity 41.2% (Rare)
It’s the last day of August and, if I’m perfectly honest, the only time I’ve turned on my PlayStation 4 this month was to watch Game of Thrones as the horrible Foxtel Now App keeps crashing on Xbox, and, judging by internet comments, there is no appetite from Rupert to fix it. Such is life.
So, I stuck with a Vita game again for my trophy this month. And while I was tempted to use one of the trophies I earned back in the first week of August, the spirit of the challenge is that I document my encounter the day-of. So, over breakfast this morning, I spent some time tidying up a few levels on Spy Chamelon to earn the trophy for grabbing all the flies in 15 levels – otherwise known as the ‘first stage’ of the game.
Look, it’s a good game. It’s exactly the kind of game I’d expect to play on the Vita, but without the killer commute every day, my appetite, and ability, for on-the-road gaming has waned. I think for September I’ll try for one of the PS4 exclusives if I can find an affordable copy somewhere, but I’m going through such an anti-PlayStation phase at the moment that I’m not sure how much enthusiasm I can muster. That didn’t stop me from purchasing the 15 months-for-the-price-of-12 PlayStation Plus though. I’m not completely stupid. But the downside is, is that I had to do it on my original gamertag so I could keep building my Vita library.
As I say, a little bit anti-PlayStation right now.
Spy Chamelon is fine. It’s a fine game. I can’t remember if I got it for free or if I paid a few bucks for it, but either way, it’s cheap and cheerful and worth a few minutes if you want to kill time. That’s what I did, today, from my kitchen table, and I’ve met my PlayStation challenge for another month.
