Chip is an isometric puzzle game with robots, electricity and fancy dress! The player must help recharge Chip - a plucky little red robot - who has been imprisoned by the nefarious villain, Rust.
The player will interact with a wide variety of objects such as cannons, mirrors, and magnets in order to direct a blob of energy to Chip and save him from his grisly fate! Players must utilise their whimsical puzzle-solving prowess by tapping, moving, and rotating these objects to achieve victory.
As the player progresses through the game they will find presents hidden amongst the many puzzles in Rust’s lair, containing a variety of Rust’s fancy dress costumes. These can be used to customise your little robot avatar, for bragging rights on the leaderboard and because everybody loves a new pair of fuzzy slippers!

Chip is a robot with a chronically low battery. His girlfriend is kidnapped and he is put in prison. Every level of this puzzle game consists of sending a charge to Chip. I guess this helps him escape? There is a lot to Chip in the puzzle sense. Bounce the charge off mirrors and around obstacles. Shift and rotate objects. Collect prizes mid-level. Do it all in the fewest moves or shortest time possible. The problem I had with this game was that this didn't amount to much fun. The design ascetic is fine, but not much is done with it. Chip is rather boring as a character and there's no real reasoning behind what you're doing. I feel like the concept of the puzzles was created and then a character added. There's a big disconnect between the two. These might seem like minor gripes, but with so many puzzle games out there doing these things better, the problems I have with Chip really stand out. Also, for no reason you can unlock outfits for the characters. Why? Like so many other aspects of this game, this was the question I kept asking myself.
