You are really close when you say you can get all the chips but the last four. What you need to do is draw the creature out and find an area that you can get around him and then trap him so that you can go in and get the last four chips without him getting you. The area that I use to get by the monster after I have lured it out is on the far right. Remember Chip can move faster than the creature can follow. Hope this helps.

Barbara,

DON'T GIVE UP!

I finally passed level 73 after a zillion tries. I think it should be called PAIN to, PAIN IN THE NECK!!! If this helps ... Trap the frog creature in the upper right hand corner. There's a box like spot that's perfect for him. It'll prob. take you a few tries, but if I can do it so can you. TRUST ME (no ref. to previous level).

You can do it Barbara. If you need anymore help, just let me know.

Good luck,

Christina

Kathy,

I will look for those hints. Thank you.

Draw the bug out of center chamber and then go in and get four chips. If the bug is there outside of the Chamber blocking your path draw the bug inside the chamber with you. Trap it in that center G wall formation. Then hook up and to the right and down past the bug to get the rest of your chips and head for the exit. If you need a detailed u,d,r,l map to first get by the bug before you go into the center chamber let me know and I'll post it for you.

Christina,

Draw the frog out of the center chamber but be to the right and over about two rows. There is two verticle paths there. One goes up to a dead end where a chip used to be and there is another just to the right of it. When you draw the frog out of the center chamber it will try and get to you through the one opening in the wall between the two paths just mentioned. The frog will go up the dead end path and Chip goes up the one to the right. Now just go fast down and left through that opening. The frog will try and catch you but it can't move as fast as Chip so you get to the center chamber and it will wait outside blocking your path after you get the four chips. Now you draw the frog into the center chamber with you...but manuver Chip so that the frog goes inside the wall formation like a G or C. You'll see how to do this. Ok once the frog is inside the C formation you go the upper right corner (actually one tile to the left and draw the frog out of the C as if to let it get you. Move quickly just as he is about to get you to the right and key down and away from the frog and then out of the Chamber and pickup the rest of your chips on the lower right side and go to the exit.

Fellow Chipsters,

A real good place to pass the frog so you can get into the center chamber is just to the right of the right wall of the center chamber. You will see an opening between four wall blocks on top & I think five on the bottom. (vertical row). Go left thru this opening and down to the entrance of the center chamber. Draw the frog out and let it follow you. When you get back to the opening move Chip right and then up. The frog will keep going up. Now when the frog reaches the top block it will stop. All you have to do is key down (rapidly) and left thru the opening then down and to the opening of the center chamber where the four chips are. Wait for the frog and let him follow you into the chamber. There is another post on this string about what to do then.

I found that being able to see the whole level really helped me on this one.

So for all you mini-map lovers here's another one.

Now you can see the separate sections of the grid

I've lettered the sections in the order they should be cleared of chips

I'll let you figure out the actual route

When doing "F" go to the square, pause... as soon as you see Toothy put it back into overdrive

This method will automatically bring "Gums" into the trap below

It's the same trapping method LIMOJOHN describes a couple of clues above, except now you don't have to think about it.

The only way to equal the present best Time remaining mark of 478 is repetition[and lots of it]. It took me about 10 days to get my proficiency to the point where I can consistently score in the 470's. In my best round, {another of those 2AM semi mindless forays} I only made a couple of slight mis-steps, and I did it with the color on, so I believe it is possible to squeeze 1 or 2 more seconds out of this level but it will take lots of practice.

Good luck!

Quick tip for Morton:

As of this time I have not been able to figure out how to enter the room with the bug so I still have to lure him out and then have him follow me back in. However there is an easy and almost 100% way past him. Simply, after you get the last chip in the room (lower left) just go to the upper right corner tile of the room. The bug will come out of the little G area and then go up. When it gets to the left of Chip you key down and out out of the room. The bug will stand there wondering what happened.

Hahahahahahaha.....try it. You'll like it.

9/7/97 Hint for Morton Level 73 Chip's Challenge

OK here is a good way to get around bug and save lots of time.

When you get to the bug room leave the chip just outside the door. Lure the bug out and you stand just to the right of the chip just outside the door of the bug room. Now the bug will go to the corner just below where you are standing. When the bug gets to the corner you take the chip and key down and head for the door of the bug room. Do it so that the bug follows you back into the room. Collect chips and get by the bug as we have already talked about. Exit the bug room and continue collecting chips as before to the exit. Hope this helps.

Good Luck.
