Chip's Challenge (Atari Lynx review)

Developer: Epyx
Publisher: Atari
Released: 1989

Chip's Challenge is an action-puzzle game that was a launch title for the handheld.

+ Includes a whopping 148 stages that cleverly fuse expansive brain teaser puzzles with more action-based challenges.

+ Excellent tutorials and full of inventive ideas whereby figuring out the solution to a tough puzzle is immensely satisfying.

+ Often mixes things up to surprise players, such as Pac-Man (1980, Arcade) style collect-a-thon levels against incoming foes.

+ Unlimited lives feature helps to alleviate frustration and a handy password system is also included to continue your game.

- Trial-and-error quickly becomes the order of the day, which might turn off some gamers who prefer to see continual progress.

- Mercifully the music can be switched off, but those who want the full experience will have to endure its ear-piercing sounds.
