Christina,

This level takes patients and time. When you first start just send Chip around the puzzle and see how he reacts to different keying off of chip pads. Don't be concerned with trying to solve right away. One thing that might help is that when chip is going around in circles he passes the lane that you should key him into to get the next chip. You cannot get to exit without suction boot and you cannot get suction boot until you have the last chip. What I did was get the chips on the left side of puzzle (this was fairly easy actually) The way I found to get to right side of puzzle was as Chip was going up left side on zip walk, key in about four or five and then down to about the third row from the bottom and then just key right and force him right so he doesn't get taken up again to that famous circle by the chip socket and suction boot where you have to start all over again. There is one of those rows on the right side also where if you get into it it takes you all the way back to the left side. Any way when chip finally does land on a chip take a moment and look for the path for him to take. You will have to understand zip sidewalks from earlier levels to figure this out. Sometimes it is best to let chip go in circle before keying him in the direction he is to go to get next chip. Well anyway this may be a start for you. Give it a shot and see what happens. I wish I could give you quick solve on this level but this one your pretty much on your own. Remember at least there isn't a time limit or any of your favorite creatures trying to get you.

Oh yea one other thing that might help....Under options menu turn off color. On some of the maze levels this seemed to help. Best of Luck and remember I am pulling for you to finish this level. Really.

Christina, (long winded post to follow)

The chip at the lower right hand side of this level you need to key up to get it. When Chip is coming down right side and turns that corner going left you need to key up. This was the last chip for me when I was doing that level and I would keep passing that chip and would be sent clear back to the left hand side to start working way back right again with a big 1 in chips left box. I don't have a cheat for you on this level.....Just too many variables. Keep chipping away. I want you to complete this level!! Remember sometimes it is easier to change Chips direction as he is going around in circles than if you try and key in directions from start. Also you notice how if you hold down a directional key that Chip will move in that direction and then stop because it is at the end of that zip. I found that if I lift off the directional key for a moment then Chip finds open path and then I push directional key again. Chip will follow the path he was on but if possible will change to the direction you want him to go. I found a little on and off the directional key will help alot. I'll post again if I think of anymore hints about this level.
