Update v1.1.58: Full Controller Support & New Audio + Video Settings

March 16th, 2014

Thank you for playing Chuck's Challenge 3D, we hope you are enjoying it. Over the last two weeks we’ve been working on improving the game with your most requested features. This update v1.1.58 includes:

  • Additional controllers supported, including Xbox 360 & PS3. Plus, restart is now bound to Y & play to X.
  • Refined Windows 8 style interface, automatically switching between pointer and mouse cursor.
  • Resolution & quality are now in-game options in Settings, this means the game now has full controller support.
  • The volume levels for both SFX and Music can be adjusted rather than just being toggled on or off.
  • Fixed the bug where the initial second is slightly shorter, hence solving the restart time hack.
If you have any suggestion for new features please add them to the Steam discussion page.

Thank you for your support.

Take control of Woop and help him navigate his way through level after level of obstacles and challenges that stand between him and reaching the exit portal. Shift blocks, find keys, flip switches, wade through water, hot-foot it through lava and do everything it takes to make it out in one piece and evade an army of hungry creatures who want nothing more than to turn our purple hero into a nice ‘n tasty Woop Sandwich.

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.

Being a 90's child I never got to experience Chip's Challenge so getting my hands on Chuck's challenge is a breath of fresh air. I am not a huge puzzle game fan but I even found myself entertain by these adorable yet complex puzzles. If you're looking for a relaxing and enjoyable puzzler look no further Chuck's Challenge is great.

I also did a first look review of it on my Youtube channel so if you'd rather see video feel free to check out mine.

First Look Gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwzUOohyrD8

Whether you're looking for a fix to that hole left inside of you from old memories of playing Chips Challenge as a kid or wanting to try out a nice new puzzle game, you're going to enjoy this game!
I originally felt this modern creation would take away the original feel of Chips Challenge but I was surprised when that wasn't the case. It's just as equally brain teasing as it ever was, just now in an environment more suited to our wants and needs in 2014. The graphics look lovely, and whilst the tilt shift style effect takes a bit of getting used to it all becomes part of it's charm that you will come to love.

It has loads of levels to offer you, plus the opportunity to play maps made by others and the ability to make your own so you won't be short of things to do. Before long I found myself trying to find the quickest ways to finish to get up in the rankings, which becomes an additional challenge even after you've finished everything.

You won't regret getting this game at all, I thoroughly recommend it!

So what is Chuck's Challenge 3D like?
Absolutely fantastic, that's what it is. It takes everything that was great in Chip's Challenge, and makes it better.
The visual art style, music, sounds, puzzles; it's all fantastic. The game can easily suck you in, and keep you going for good periods of time.
It starts of extremely easy, but slowly ramps up the difficulty, and teaches you new things as it goes.

I would easily recommend this to both newer players, and people that have played and enjoyed Chip's Challenge. At a tenner, this is a must buy in my opinion for any puzzle game lover.
