This game is one of the first games I have played (at least what I remember). Other are SkiFree and Supaplex. It can be quite a challenge...

this game is great at giving you that old pc vibe.

i actually downloaded the old version after this, because i was interested.

this game is great at most points, but the diffulty crawls up a bit too fast. i understand, as this game keeps the level design of the old version, and back then, games were purposefully diffult to keep you invested. great game.

Having not played the original CC, this was a new experience for me--and a good one it was! If people complain about the music just being some MIDIs of old songs, yeah you're right but

1. It's to remind you the game was originally on WINDOWS 95

2. You can turn it off in preferences.

The puzzles are incredibly hard (CURSE YOU NUTS AND BOLTS AND YOUR PATH!!!!), but there's alot of satisfaction when you complete a level because you solved it.

And by the way, Chips Challenge 2. It was previously unreleased (IDK why) but ported over, go give that a try (and the level editor!).

Need a puzzle to rack your brain? Sure the first levels are easy tutorial style levels. But then death after death and restart after restart, you realize this game is still as hard as it was on Windows 95. Great but difficult puzzles and it makes you feel so good once you beat that 144th level. I finally did on the original game back when it first came out. . . . don't know why I'm attempting it again, but it is worth $1.99 to reminisce.

This, is my beloved puzzle classic of my childhood. I'm not kidding here - I loved this game as a kid, had the old version on both Windows 98 and XP. Every puzzle lover must have this, it's addicting and very fun game, even to this day.

If you just spent a ♥♥♥♥load of money on a gaming PC with a dope graphics card, Chip's Challenge is the must-have game for ironic jokes. The gameplay itself is a simple blend of puzzle and adventure. Collect the items needed to make your way through each obstacle the levels throw at you and make your way to the next level. You don't have enough money for any other games anyway. You just spent a ♥♥♥♥load on that sick rig.

Do you remember Chip's Challenge? Of course you do!
Back on the good old Windows 95 you played hours and hours of this
game and couldn't get enough!

A good few of you might have been playing on
the Atari Lynx, and maybe more on the DOS, but if you're a "90's kid" you
remember the amazing "Best of Microsoft Entertainment Pack" floppy that came with all your favorites; Pipe Dream, Ski-Free, most importantly; Chip's Challenge! Now sure it isn't exactly the same given these are re-animated or "original" sprites, but that isn't a problem due to easy sprite interactivity and the knowledge of just how hard it was for Chuck and his team of developers to finally reserve the rights to this great puzzle game once again! What are you waiting for? Re-live your childhood now!

This game is notorious.

Few puzzle games can be called "hardcore," and Chip's Challenge is one of them. Many puzzles in this game require trial-and-error. Many puzzles have random elements. Many puzzles are really long and take over ten minutes to finish. And there's no saving or rewinding -- one wrong move and you have to start the entire level over again, every time.

Oh, and there are time limits.

And the puzzles can be pretty hard, too. Hope you've been brushing up on your block-pushing.

If you've played a previous incarnation of Chip's Challenge before, you probably know what you're getting into. You'll find that this is a respectable remake, and you can even mod in the old graphics and sounds if you want. In addition, we've now got achievements, trading cards, and especially steam cloud syncing, which is very welcome.

If you haven't played this game before, well... just be warned that you're gonna need a lot of time and patience. Chip's Challenge is a test of character. The first time I played, it took me over five years just to get through half the levels.

But hey, that's just what it takes to get into the Bit Buster's club. They gotta keep out all of the lobotomy heads, you know.

In the boiler room pressure cooker that is High School one lonely nerd attempts the impossible... getting into the computer club?

Contrivances and lack of versimilitude aside, any excuse to take on 144 badass challenges is good enough for me and Chip!

This is a faithful remake using the CC2 engine of the orginal game. It's more closer to the orginal Lynx version with it's animated tiles, than the Microsoft made one that was in Microsoft's Entertainment Pack Four (and the microsoft version have a few bugs and mistakes). As this is a game I played since I even obtained my first Compaq 486 computer, I think this is one of the ulterior classic puzzle games and worth picking up if you never played it before.

The only complaint is that it runs at a fixed resolution, should been a option to zoom in 2x-3x.

I played this a lot as a kid and now hate big lips due to the original monsters. It is a challenging game that was worth the reviving. I bought the whole package because it's only $4.99 and it's worth it. If you're a fan of the original, someone already has a way to make it look and sound like the original.

A Classic Remastered Puzzle Game
https://youtu.be/MN0NK2icRDk
+ Graphically looks great for an essentially a remastered version of the original classic 1989 game
+ 144 levels so a lot of content
+ Each level seems to add new mechanics and be pretty unique compared to the last
+ Challenging

- The background music was extremely low compared to the loud in-game sounds (not noticeable in the video above)
- Like the classic game, you must repeat the entire level if you fail or messup any part which can be very tedius during longer levels with multiple puzzles you have to complete.
- No full-screen option

I'd recommend this to those who enjoyed the classic version back in the day, this game definitely brings back some nostalgia. I'd also recommend it to people who simply love puzzle games.

I played this as a lad at my grandmother's house. This was a nice trip down memory lane. I may have left the game running.... 51 hours?
