    Buy it, enjoy it, love it and make it a success - Cloning Clyde, in any of his many guises, personifies what Xbox Live Arcade is all about, and we need more games with the same originality, sparkle and fun factor as this one.
  2. It's over too soon, but that speaks more to Clyde's addictiveness than to the brevity of the game.
  3. It’s just a goofy contest with about three dozen puzzling levels to keep you occupied and entertained for a while.
  4. The maze-like level designs may seem a little chaotic at first, but their appearance is misleading. In fact, they're very logically designed and player-friendly. With just a little experimentation, solutions become readily apparent.
  5. Even at 800 Microsoft points (so, six-quid-eighty), it offers a lot of value compared to some of its fellow test-subjects, and while it does occasionally frustrate or bore, the urge to keep going remains.
  6. It's fun and a blast in multiplayer. Cloning Clyde isn't a very deep game but it can be worth your $10 if you like side scrolling games.
  7. If you're intrigued by a puzzle platformer involving duplication and genetic mayhem, Cloning Clyde will provide a few hours of enjoyable entertainment, but not much more than that.
