How can I make my own levels?
You can make your own levels with ChipEdit, which you can download at http://www.stage62.com/chipedit/.
Another option, although a less user-friendly one, is to use Brian Raiter's "c4" program, which you can download at http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/software/tworld/download.html. This program allows you to convert levelset .dat files back and forth between a textual format, which is easy to edit in any text editor. c4 requires that you have the Perl programming language installed and are comfortable using a command line.
c4 is the closest thing to a "Tile World level editor" for people who use operating systems other than Windows, and can't run ChipEdit. It is also generally handy for anyone who prefers precise editing of every detail of their levels.
You can also use CCTools, which comes with methods of playing levels as well (http://cctools.translucentdragon.com) or Chip's Workshop, another Chip's Challenge editor (http://www.freewebs.com/geochip/chipschallengeeditors.htm).
