Pocket Chips Challenge
Pocket Chips Challenge is a freeware port of Microsoft's Chips Challenge for the PC . Now people can play a classic favorite wherever they go. Chips Challenge is a very addictive puzzle game featuring Chip in a maze of traps and monsters.
Overview of the game
Chip is willing to do anything for Melinda the Mental Marvel, more than anything, because he wants to join Melinda's exclusive computer club, the Bit Busters. Finally Melinda has offered him membership, but on one condition! Chip must find his way from one end of Melinda's magical clubhouse to the other, picking up cosmic computer chips along the way.
If that sounds easy, then you've never been to Melinda's magical clubhouse. It's awesome inside, but tricky, and a little scary too. There are teleports, invisible walls, force floors, water traps, locked doors, and plenty of monsters. There's magic, mystery, and behind the scenes there is Melinda, keeping score on your progress and providing helpful hints.
As you succeed in helping Chip move through each level of the clubhouse, Melinda gives you a secret password that allows you to return. And Melinda rewards perseverance. If she thinks Chip has tried long enough and hard enough on a level, she'll let him sneak through to the next level. But it takes a lot of perseverance to impress her. How big is the clubhouse? 144 levels is the rumor. But some claim that Melinda is still building. In any case, it defies dimensions so don't get lost.
New Alpha 2.0 now available!
The rebuilt Alpha 2.0 is now available for download. This is a fully playable version. Due to the fact that not all of the features are in place, this program is being released as Alpha. Currently, the only items on the title screen that work, are the "Play Game" and "Exit" options.
Unfortunately, if you get stuck, you will either need to let time run out, kill Chip, or exit the game to restart the level.
If you have previously tried to download and were not able to, please try again. It should now be working.
I have included a CHIPS.DAT. If you would like to download a a different data file, CHIPS.DAT files can be obtained a couple different ways:
