Cloning Clyde is a short-and-sweet, casual, side-scrolling platformer. You won’t find anything groundbreaking in it or much innovation at all, but it is a fun game. If you enjoy casual puzzle-platformers, and you want a new experience, then you will probably enjoy Cloning Clyde.

It’s a simple game, with the main system to solving levels revolving around the 2 basic mechanics: splicing your DNA with animals to gain abilities (flight, underwater breathing, better jumping, etc.); and creating clones of yourself which you can then take control of. The puzzles are simple, and the platforming is easy. It is a very casual game.

Each level has some collectibles and a par-time to beat; they are very generous and easy to achieve. It won’t take very long to earn 100% completion in the game, and after that there isn’t really much replay value.

The graphics are mediocre, and there is not really a story or anything. However, the controls were good for me with a controller, and there were no frustrating parts. I experienced no glitches/crashing.

Having said all that, I enjoyed my playthrough of Cloning Clyde. It is certainly far from the best game in the genre, but I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys casual, side-scrolling puzzle-platformers and is looking for some novelty. It is a short game, though; but if you get it for a good price, it is worth the playthrough.

Great game for kids! Inventive puzzles and nice "good for eye" graphics. If u want to change to a something less serious this platformer will do its job. Sure recommendations!

This is one of my "guilty pleasure" games I own, but not one that I'm afraid to admit to. I played the crap out of the demo on Xbox 360 (came pre-installed) but never bought it for that system. Years later and it's on a steam summer sale and I say "to hell with it, buy the damn game" and have not regretted it since. I may not get all the clones back, or all the secret action figures, or play on anything harder than easy mode, but I still love the game. If you are at all a fan of platform/exploration games pick it up!

Cloning Clyde is an enjoyable puzzle action platformer with native controller support. The puzzles themselves vary in difficulty and all revolve around your ability to clone yourself and use your clones to manipulate certain puzzles on the gamefield. My only minor gripe about the game is the fairly low resolution graphics which on a widescreen monitor when stretched to fullscreen result in a lot of jagged edges on the screen. The music is sparse and limited to flourishes and the intro screen, but I would still recommend this game to puzzle lovers who want a little bit of arcade action. Platform arcade enthusiasts though may find the actual twitch aspect of the game lacking, and the enemies are really only their to delay the completing of the puzzles rather than representing a serious threat. All in all it's a competent game though, and worth recommending to most Steam gamers.
