Caves of Ice is an Ice themed level in Kid Chameleon.


There are two ways to the flag and out of this level, however one is a lot more profitable than the other.

Your first option is to go right. Either take Red Stealth out of the right prize block and dig trough the floor on the right, or go through the hidden passage in the wall to the right. This in convenient because 1) you can keep your current helmet if you want, and 2) there is a hidden Micromax helmet here. Fall down to the bottom of the level and enter the ice tower to the left. The flag is at the top of a lengthy shaft. Climbing it with Red Stealth and the elevators is a real pain in the a**, with Micromax it is somewhat easier. Should you fail there is a teleporter to restart at the bottom.

The other option is to take the Iron Knight helmet out of the left prize block. Now break through to the rock blocks below your starting positions. You will fall down a narrow gap in the ice until you hit some kind of crossroads. But the path to the right is too narrow for Iron Knight, so you have to continue your way down. Break through the blocks. In the left column you will reveal a Micromax helmet close to the bottom. Take it on and climb up the gap in the ice again. Now take the right path and climb the small road in the ice. Near the top you will find three prize blocks. Break them and take some precious loot. Right of the top block is a hidden passage that will lead you straight to the flag.

In case you take the teleporter instead of going back up with Micromax, you'll end up in Elsewhere 32. That level has a Cyclone helmet and puts you back in this level, making the right path very easy since you don't have to bother with the elevator blocks. This is by far the easiest way to get the Speed Bonus.
