I loved Chip's Challenge! I thought no one new about it because it was just a PC game that came with my Windows. Gamma whats your avatar?

It's the dinosaur from Diddy Kong Racing's opening.

Hey @Gamma_128 and @KaiserGX have either of you ever played the PC title "Spelling Jungle"?

I haven't played it. Why do you ask?

It's a really addictive PC edutainment title, that I played for many hours when I was younger. It also came in an old software bundle and I just wondered if you might have played it as well? I would tell you to definitely check it out, if you have a computer that's still running Windows 3.1. I don't know if it would run on any other operating system.

Hey @KnucklesSonic8 how many puzzles have you completed so far and how much time did it take you to do so? So I have some way of knowing roughly how high the difficulty level is. Because it won't keep me interested if the puzzles are too easy.

If you like games like Bobby Carrot Forever and Chip's Challenge, try downloading the shareware version of Apocolypse Abyss. It's a DOS game, so you'll need something like DOSBox to run it on modern computers.
@WiiAboutU Unlike DOS games, most Windows 3.1 games actually run just fine on modern PCs.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

@BulbasaurusRex So "Spelling Jungle" could possibly run fine on Windows XP? The game was awesome, if you can find a copy I would definitely snatch it up. The box art for the title is a little drab, but the game is wonderfully animated and the puzzles are very addictive. IMO@KnucklesSonic8 I couldn't resist the temptation so I just downloaded Bobby Carrot Forever. I'd still like to hear from you what you think. Hey, did you guys know with the added DLC there is a total of 90 hrs. of gameplay. I'd say that's well worth $33, how about you guys? I've been playing through the first few levels of the first area and it seems like a fairly decent puzzler.

Thus far, I've cleared one third of the game's levels with about an hour's worth of playtime. The puzzles I've solved so far have all been low difficulty, yet on some of these, I did have to stop and think how to go about activating switches or crossing single-use bridges in the right order. There are some elements designed to throw you off as they are not required to solve the puzzle, so you can't just activate everything randomly and hope for the best. I look forward to seeing how the stages improve as I move onto the medium- and high-difficulty worlds.
Last time a logic game like this appeared on WiiWare, I didn't think too much of it, but so far I kind of like the game. I'm hoping the next sets of worlds will be more interesting. We'll see how it goes.
Feel free to ask questions, guys.

WiiAboutU: Was the game worth the $8? Still trying to decide if I should buy this one. Thanks.

@KnucklesSonic8: Are you planning on downloading any of the DLC for this game? I'd love to hear if it is worth the investment. I still haven't downloaded Bobby Carrot but I am keeping an eye on this thread to see how other people like it.

I may just do that. We'll see.

@KS8 Is there a health meter and/or any moving enemies to dodge?
34. Posted: Mon 25th Jul 2011 00:00 BST
No to both. There might be some enemies later on, but I don't know for sure.

If you like adventure puzzler titles, than you should think about giving it a chance. I mean there are no other WiiWare titles with this specific style of gameplay available at the moment. So there really isn't anything for me to compare it to. The puzzles do start off fairly easy as @KnucklesSonic8 explained. I think the game eases you into the more difficult puzzles, so that you may get acquainted with the mechanics. I believe the DLC will only contain medium and high difficulty levels, as it's not related to the main story. And each of the 5 additonal downloads contain as many puzzles as the main story. So even if @KnucklesSonic8 has completed a third of the game, there is still the possibility to download far much more content. @InvisibleTune I'm not sure if it's worth it if you only plan to download the main story without the DLC. I would still love to see some puzzle adventures like "Spelling Jungle" and or "Spelling Blizzard" ported to WiiWare. (<:

Actually, there is a game that's similar: Mouse House. I've played it. I know KaiserGX loved the game so I'm sure he'd like this game. I personally didn't think much of it, though.
37. Posted: Mon 25th Jul 2011 02:13 BST
I thought Mouse House was more like the PC title "The Incredible Machine" IMO? Hey @KnucklesSonic8, I'm on level 10 of the Fairy Magic map pack, how do I get the last coin in the bottom left corner before completing the puzzle? Has anyone else purchased this yet, other than @KnucklesSonic8?

I believe the DLC is completely worth it, but like I said I'm not sure if it's worth it if you only plan to purchase the main story. And I hope more people decide to download this, because I might need some help. (<:←(Actually might create the "Bobby Carrot Forever Guidance" thread) I might actually be playing this forever. lol

I looked up a video of the Incredible Machine... no it's not like that. Mouse House is a bit closer to Adventures of Lolo, similar genre. I loved the music and characters on Mouse House though. I just don't like you could skip levels.

I'll probably get it when I can, but I don't have the money right now.
