Starship Chameleon intro and game screen.

Starship Chameleon is an arcade style game, loosely based on the Atari 2600 hit Kaboom!. The basic premise is to try and catch all of the bombs before they hit the bottom. It differs from Kaboom! by being more diverse and complicated: The aliens at the top can drop 'semi-intelligent aerial smart bombs', which you can NOT catch, and follow you around horizontally. You also have to be the same color as the bomb you are trying to catch (yellow or blue), which you can change by hitting the joystick button. Also, solid bombs are worth 100 points, but hollow bombs are worth 1000. There are multiple skill levels, and level 9 is basically impossible (the aliens will shower dozens of bombs at once, leaving you little choice but to miss most of them).
