Chip's Challenge est typiquement le genre de programme qui n'a l'air de rien, avec sa réalisation peu impressionnante mais qui se révèle passionnante à l'usage. Chaque tableau pose un nouveau problème qu'on résout avec joie. Essayez-le 5 minutes et vous l'adopterez.

The Atari Times
When you couple the control with the fact that Chip's Challenge has over 140 different levels to try out, this game easily becomes one of the Lynx's true gems. The learning curve is perfect for newcomers and old-puzzlers alike, and fun can be found for all ages in it. Chip's Challenge can be found quite cheap now, and for the price should suit any Lynx addicts card slot just perfectly.

Wow! Wer sich nur einwenig mit dem Spielprinzip anfreunden kann, der sollte sich nach dem Erwerb für die nächsten Abende nichts vornehmen. Die gekonnte Mischung aus Puzzle Elementen und Geschicklichkeit machen die Cart zu wohl einer der besten auf dem Lynx. Angesichts der Tatsache, das Chip's Challenge auch noch relativ häufig und günstig zu finden ist, sollte es sich wirklich kein Lynx-Besitzer entgehen lassen!

Wer sich an den Computerspiele-Klassiker "Snake Byte" von Sirius Software erinnert, dem wird er Name Chuck Sommerville bekannt vorkommen. Er schuf diesen Hit und legt mit "Chip's Challenge" für das Lynx sein neuestes Werk vor. Chuck hat sich dabei von anderen erfolgreichen Programmen ordentlich inspirieren lassen. Erprobte Spielelemente aus "Boulder Dash" und "Sokoban" sowie eigene, neue Ideen geben sich in 144 Leveln die Ehre.

Portable Review
On a handheld that offered very little in quality games, Chip's Challenge is probably one of the best Lynx games that I've played. It's addicting, simple, and will keep you busy for however long you're willing to be kept, and will allow you to waste time on those boring business trips, instead of just in the office. If you're a fan of the PC version, as every good human should be, and you've got a lonely Atari Lynx sitting in your closet, hunt this one down.

Megablast
Die Grafik ist zwar eher karg, und auch der Klangteppich hätte voluminöser ausfallen dürfen, doch die vielen Logik-Puzzeleien und das ebenso ausgeklügelte wie abwechslungsreiche Gameplay machen die Präsentationsmängel mehr als wett: Die Steuerung ist astrein, der Schwierigkeitsgrad steigert sich langsam aber gewaltig, praktisch kein Level spielt sich wie der vorangegangene. Von Action über Geschicklichkeitstests bis hin zu purer Kopfarbeit findet der Gehirnakrobat bei diesem klassischen Süchtigmacher alles, was er zum Glücklichsein braucht!

IGN
The Lynx was originally designed for fast arcade-action games, but there's no reason why it can't expand its range. With a lot of variety, a lot of difficulty, a lot of originality, and a lot of ol'-fashioned craftsmanship, Chip's Challenge is a quality title and recommended for players of all kinds.

Atari HQ
Chip's Challenge is one of the most innovative and addicting action/puzzlers to come out in a very long time. It'll test your problem-solving skills to the max because there are over 144 levels (along with four bonus levels) of puzzles to solve, with each level offering something unique and different.

The Video Game Critic
Chip's Challenge does give you an infinite number of tries, and even offers you the option of skipping a level if you fail it repeatedly (not that this ever happened to me!). Living up to its name, the game offers 144 (!) levels, and if you complete them all without losing your mind, you deserve an honorary college degree. Chip's Challenge was a little too thought-intensive for my arcade sensibilities, but those with a knack for puzzles games will eat this up.
