Microstupidity - Tile World

Microstupidity > Chip's Challenge > Home | Tile World | Chip's Workshop

Tile World is a free version of Chip's Challenge developed by Brian Raiter. It is an open-source cross-platform program, and includes reimplementations of both the original Lynx version of the game and the Microsoft version. Unfortunately, it does not include the levels from the original game. However, it is possible to use it to play various fan-made levels, including community-developed level series such as CCLP2 and CCLP3 which aim to be similar in scope to the original levels. If you have the "chips.dat" file from the Microsoft version, you can use this to play the original Chip's Challenge levels in Tile World.

As of the time of writing, the latest version of Tile World is 1.3.0, released on 17 April 2006:

Madhav Shanbhag's fork

Madhav Shanbhag has produced a modified version of Tile World, mainly featuring modifications to the user interface. He presents this as simply being version 2 of the program, but I can find no evidence of any sort of endorsement from Brian Raiter, so I consider it more proper to view it as a fork of the project:

Christopher Elsby's patches

I have made a few patches for Tile World. These have to be applied to the source code, and thus require some technical/programming knowledge to use.
