    Hello all chipsters! For the last 3.5 years I haven't been very active in the CC community. I played only a couple of sets and joined few competitions. Nevertheless, I made some levels during that time and I feel it would be a shame if I didn't release them. So here they are! This set is short - only 5 levels, and none of them are especially difficult. I noticed that 4 of them had a monster guiding theme, so I decided to go with this name. I hope you enjoy them! Download Please leave your thoughts & feedback in this thread.

  4. May 2015 Mini Challenge - funfair0 puzzles

    Sorry for bumping this old thread, but I recently played through funfair. I have completed 23 of the first 25 levels, all except Monster Swap and My Blue Friend. A lot of the levels felt like they were non-CC puzzles implemented in CC. It's an interesting idea and not something I've seen before, but I found these levels were very hit-and-miss. Some levels were excellent, but sometimes I thought it took too long to understand the rules of the puzzle compared to actually solving it. Simple Swap - This level is interesting but gets kind of tedious. I think the short version is almost too long already, and that's why I didn't complete the long one. Chip Leak Watermelon - This level reminds me a lot of short circuit and, like in that level, you can think carefully about every desicion to avoid trapping yourself. It's a fun level. The flippers don't give you much opportunity to explore, since there aren't many paths left and it feels like you could easily cook the level, so I'm indifferent about the level's end. Busted Old Appliances - I love this level. I've seen the basic puzzle where you connect 6 points before, so I understood the hint immediately. But there's even more to the puzzle, since you can't just take any path. The limited space restricts you a lot. Figuring out the correct path was really fun. Heads and Tails - The hardest part of this level is figuring out how the mechanism works. It's pretty complicated when you don't know what the red buttons are connected to. Once you figure that out, the solution is trivial. I didn't like this level as there wasn't much of a puzzle, instead you just had to figure out all the rules. There is No Possible Way - I'm supposed to look online for the answer? That's pretty unusual. I guess the puzzle was cool, but I don't think it works well in this implementation. Dodecaphobia - It's a nice layout for a bug dodging level full of short corridors. This actually gave me a lot of trouble to beat, but that probably says more about me than the level! Seven Nine Thirteen - What is this? Unyielding Pyramid - This is one of my favourites. I just wish the layout was less confusing. For instance, I don't think there should be a one way path to the left side at the beginning of the level. It makes the rules of the puzzle more confusing but not the puzzle itself. The idea with the triangle in the middle was really good. The Hatfield Recalibration - Another great level. The confusing maze works really well here. Seven Queens - Sure, it's impressive, but does this really need to be a chip's challenge level? I didn't find playing it that fun. Bounce Paths - I only played the easier path - that was already hard enough for me. The room near the end with 4 pink balls all colliding with each other was really tough. I thought this was really good for a straightforward pink ball level. My Blue Friend - trying to sync up tank button hits while I can barely see the tank is really hard. I didn't get very far and I didn't enjoy this. Five by five - Please move the hint to the start! It's really important for to understanding what's happening, and right now it's hard to reach or even see. This level is... extremely difficult. I couldn't find any patterns, or any way to think about it differently to make it simpler. The solutions aren't symmetrical. If there's a trick to solving it, I really want to know it. In the end, I had to use computer assistance. Fun fact: there are exactly 96 solutions. I liked it a lot.

  12. An Honest Review of CCLP1

    Hi, I guess I'm momentarily back. Recently I was hungry for a new puzzle game and decided to play through CCLP1. I was heavily active in the months before CCLP1, but burnt out too early to really play through it. I beat about 25 levels when the set was released, but quickly lost motivation and quit CC. So this was, for the most part, blind. I played the game on tile world lynx (as opposed to the awful, buggy and somehow popular 5fps port) and beat all but one level in 4 days. This isn't my return to the community, I simply felt like playing CC recently. I feel like I have somewhat of an outsiders perspective and haven't really been influenced by the hype. The set starts of exactly as you'd expect. However, after the well-picked lesson levels, CCLP1 presents a medley of about 80 levels which were all designed for the level 15 slot. No individual level was actually bad, however by level 100 I noticed that the set I was playing through hadn't reached Tossed Salad difficulty yet. Am I really not trusted to figure out how to dodge the enemies 2 seconds into Starry Night, or experiment on puzzles? I remembered back to the strategic dodging on Digger and Blobdance; the creative puzzles Four Square and Catacombs; and Blobdance and On The Rocks, which dared to be difficult. Due to an excessive focus on beginner-friendliness and "fair" design (can it be beaten it in 1 try), CCLP1 is simply boring. This is not a replacement for CC1. I understand that this game was targeted at beginners, not me, so please don't get too offended by anything I say. I know I'm being harsh. But this is just how I personally felt about the set. After the early-game snoozefest, however, the set becomes a lot better, and I enjoyed most of the triple digit levels. If only the set had reached this point sooner, and I see no reason why it didn't, I would've really like it overall. Thief, You've Taken All That Was Me was hands down my favourite level in the set. I guess that shows what kind of a game I was hoping for. Will I come back for CCLP4? Perhaps. Right now I'm even entertaining the idea of LPing it, but who knows how many times I'll change my mind in the decade before it gets released. One thing's for sure: if I ever play that Chips Challenge set, it's because I want a challenge. Something with a difficulty peak that puts CCLP3 to shame. But that seems unlikely, since certain members of the community will denounce anything that takes them more than one attempt to beat. At the very least, I want that feeling of being stumped by a puzzle. And that feeling of solving it after so much time and thought. I only weakly felt that twice in the four days it took me to finish this set.

    CCLP4 submissions! This is basically my CCLP1 set with newer levels added on. No original levels. Enjoy!

    Thanks, JB! I didn't know any progress had been made on CCLP4 until I saw this post. I talked to Michael over skype and he sent me a link to this thread, which is apparently the main CCLP4 discussion thread. IMO, there should be a more obvious CCLP4 discussion thread than this, or maybe the thread's title could be changed. Anyway, now that I know about it, I'll submit all 9 levels for CCLP4. I won't submit any of my older levels since my best older levels are already in CCLP1 and anyway, I feel that this set has far better levels than my first two. EDIT: Never mind, I just looked though the set and there are more good hard levels than I remembered. I'll think about CCLP4 submissions whenever the limitations on what designers can submit are decided on.
  15. MO3

    Hello again CCZone! MO3 is a level set I started a year ago. Since then, I've lost motivation for CC so I haven't worked on the set much. Now it's Christmas and I've finally decided to release the levels. The primary goal of MO3 was to make levels that look really nice. It is also probably my hardest set, since I used up my ideas for easier levels for CCLP1. The set includes 9 finished levels, which are all medium to hard, but greatly differ in length. I also included 3 levels which are close to being complete, but were never finished due to a lack of motivation. Download: http://cczone.invisionzone.com/index.php?/files/file/428-mo3/ Enjoy! Please post feedback in this thread. All levels have been tested in lynx only, so please report anything MS-exclusive. Screenshots:
