What is Chip's Challenge?
Chip's Challenge is a tile-based puzzle game, in which our hero Chip must work his way through the 149 levels of Melinda's clubhouse. These levels are filled with obstacles of many kinds including deadly monsters, locked doors, and cosmic chip sockets. The number of combinations is endless, and every level provides a new and unique challenge.

The first version was written by Chuck Sommerville in 1989 for the Atari Lynx; it was later ported to several other platforms, most notably Microsoft Windows (see (Xref) Microsoft's version of Chip's Challenge).

A great detailed description of Chip's Challenge, with screenshots of the free implementation called Tile World (see (Xref) Tile World), is available at http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/software/tworld/about.html.
