Well it’s Wednesday and we all know what that means, no not that you have to put the trash out, it’s Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays of course! The special day in the week where we see MS live up to their word (finally) flooding lots of Arcade content on to the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Last week we had the all time classic – Frogger and this week we take a turn towards the independent developer – NinjaBee, the same folks that brought us Outpost Kaloki X. With their second title on the Xbox Live Marketplace, Cloning Clyde is a completely unique 3D adventure and puzzle game that may bring new meaning to the word “schizophrenic”.

Clyde was an ordinary (but slightly dim) guy before Dupliclone Inc. paid him $20 to take part in a cloning experiment. Now he’s multiple ordinary dim guys trapped in the nefarious Dupliclone Lab. To escape his diabolical captors, Clyde is going to have to get a little creative with himself and those around him. Lucky for him, Dupliclone left a whole lot of strange technology laying around, and it’s up to Clyde to clone, combine, and mutate his way out of the evil Dupliclone trap.

As Clyde adventures and meets new inhabitants of the Dupliclone labs, he’ll combine with apes, frogs, chickens, and more. Yes, even Chicken-Clyde will aid in the great escape!

Cloning Clyde makes full use of Xbox 360’s advanced processing, graphics, sound, and unique Xbox Live® online game service features including achievements, leaderboards, online play, and more! In addition to a single-player story and individual challenging scenarios, enjoy multiplayer split-screen or online play, both co-op and vs. modes, with friends from all over the world.

Cloning Clyde is available now to all Xbox Live regions and is available for Free Trial and will set you back 800MS Points should you wish to buy it.
