New game engine for Massive Invisible Update



Over the last 6 months Chip’s Challenge creator Chuck Sommerville has rebuilt from scratch the Chuck’s Challenge 3D game engine adding 100s of new improvements & features.

“With 1,000,000s of players creating 10,000s of levels, we’ve learnt a great deal over the last few years.” Chuck Sommerville said. “The Massive Invisible update as the name suggests is huge. It’s so big we even thought about calling it Chuck’s Challenge 4.”

The Massive Invisible update includes 100s of new features and improvements including:

  • Hints are now uploaded along with the user-generated levels, allowing players to watch in-game how the original creator completed the level.
  • Enhanced Graphics with updated models and new graphically effects that take advantages of the latest Unity 3D features making everything looks super smooth; including character animations and a new psychedelic undo effect.
  • Improved Controls Woop now understands his surrounding, helping players to get even better times by moving diagonally while also avoiding walls.
The below video from May explains further some of the new features that are included with Massive Invisible: http://youtu.be/HUibXJg5TPc
“Hints are my new favorite feature.” Chuck Sommerville said. “Chip’s Challenge was based on a 32x32 grid, whereas Chuck’s Challenge 3D allows a 100x100 board with even more Game Elements. So it’s thrilling to watch some of the complex levels and their solutions being created by the community. Some are truly epic.”

The Massive Invisible update for Chuck’s Challenge 3D is on Steam for PC, Mac & Linux:

Loved Chip's Challenge and great to see the game being expanded to include new features like on-line sharing of level and an editor all in-game.

A modern-day version of Chip's Challenge (or its spiritual relative for early 1990s Macintosh computers, Blobbo) has been something I've wanted for quite many years. It's not a Chip's Challenge redux, but it definitely has the same spirit - bringing in 50% entertainment and 50% frustration (after all, I never even played through Chip's Challenge since it got too... brainy ... for me >_>). A bit too cutesy at times and some of the sound effects can get quite bothersome after trying to beat a level after multiple attempts. Great music, though! Highly recommended!

I.... I never actually played Chip's Challenge. But I was once very addicted to the Lolo games on NES. Close enough.

You solve challenging puzzles by pushing blocks and avoiding/manipulating enemies. That's all you need to know. You either love or hate that kind of game. If you love it, this is the game to get. It's the best. No gimmicks or comedic plot needed.

This game brought back some nostalgic memories of Chip’s Challenge. If you were a fan of Chip’s Challenge, then this game is perfect for you. The game levels progress nicely and provide some great challenges. The only down side is that the puzzles are not as large as Chip’s Challenge, but that is only a minor down side.

The follow-up to Chip's Challenge for the Atari Lynx and Windows 3.1. You can tell it was optimized for things like iOS and Android, but this is still a worthwhile follow-up to the original tile-based puzzler.

I must mention: The menus, the characters, and the levels elements are like an oversized dollop of cottage cheese: big and chunky. Plus the navigation of menus is just odd, where you use the mouse like you would a finger on a touchscreen. But PC optimization issues aside, it's your job to solve the puzzles as Woop. And yeah, he's no Chip, but the little bugger does have charm, I'll give him that.

As for the gameplay, well, it's Chip's Challenge 2.0, and that's precisely why I threw my money at the screen in the first place. If you're not familiar with that game, it's a tile-based Sokoban-like game where you have an area filled with locked doors and hazards, and it’s your goal to collect the required items before exiting the level. For the most part, it's the same game with new puzzles and a new look. Like, you're not collecting chips here, but little glowing blue things, and the enemies look totally different. But a lot of the puzzle elements are the same, like water, fire, ice, moving floors, etc. And you still have the same types of power-ups that let you circumvent these hazards where appropriate. There are five sets of levels to complete with 25 levels each, but the first selection more or less follows the rules of the original game. When you move beyond those, the game really starts to open up into its own thing, with a slew of new enemies, hazards, and puzzle components. It never has to give you a dumb tutorial either, since the rules of upcoming levels are clearly laid out for you with an easier level earlier on. But don't let the first set of levels fool you, this game can be just as brutal as its predecessor.

Well sort of. It's a bit easier as well, with the ability to take back any number of moves at any time. This means you don't necessarily have to restart the entire level if you screw up, so no bummers here. Time keeps ticking while you do this, but it's far less rage-inducing to make a stupid mistake now. It even asks you if you want to skip a level if you suck to the point of shaming your ancestors. The levels are also far smaller than many of those in Chip's Challenge, and I assume this is because of the time and screen size constraints of the mobile version. And when you finish off or rage quit the main game, there's a fully-featured, easy-to-use level editor. You can upload your own or download other people's creations right from within the game. Oh and you can apparently get hats, because freaking hats man, why developers haven't shoehorned them into every game already is beyond me.

Personally, I find Chuck's Challenge to be a perfectly adequate successor to Chip's Challenge. It's more of the same kind of logical puzzle-solving with only a few concessions made for mobile platforms and slightly more forgiving gameplay. But even with a few iffy changes, if you enjoyed the original game or just enjoy these types of logic games, I'd give this one a look.
