Reality Glitch Plays: Chips Challenge

May 11, 2016

Well, a bit of it anyway, its got 144 levels.

In Chips Challenge you take on the role of Chip, our nerdy hero who is trying to impress Melinda and get into the Bit Busters club and um, ‘integrate technologies’ with her (words on the advert, not mine). The game is a vast (I play the first 10 levels here) and of varying difficulty. It has a whole host of weird enemies, traps and pitfalls try to prevent you from reaching your goal at every turn.

Using your wits and cunning you must navigate Chip safely to each level exit by solving puzzles and in most cases collecting a number of chips along the way.  You’ll need to use objects such as handy keys (blue, yellow, green and red) as well as shields to protect you from fire and water, boots to help you navigate ice, and a magnet to help you move about on what I’ve always thought was a demented escalator.

Anyways, have a watch of the video below and let me know your thoughts and memories about Chips Challenge!

I’ve also taken a quick look at Chips Challenge before in my blog post ‘Puzzling, one disk wonders on the Amiga

All the best!
