Chip's challenge is an amazing game. It has massive levels and small levels and it's challenging. You play Chip, who's on a quest to collect all of the chips and get through Melinda's castle. You have to go through 149 levels to reach the end. The levels are huge and you have to avoid the monsters, walk through fire, face perilous situations and be the best to can be. Then, when you're all done with the game, go back and try to beat it in world record time or get the highest score. Trust me, there are sites out there dedicated to that stuff.
Well, there really isn't much I didn't like except that the graphics aren't that great. But you can't really make stunning graphics with sprites. (programming stuff, you wouldn't understand.) It's still a great game though. Oh and after a while, it gets annoying when Chip keeps going "Ugh". You can turn that off though.
The Bottom Line
Chip's challenge is an awesome game. It's a great game where you journey through a strange world and have to avoid monsters and collect all of the chips. It's a race against time so don't be slow! Oh and look for clues in the title of the level like, "Southpole". Hint, hint. SOUTH = Down
