Tile World-Opinions...

I think I'm gonna try and make a portable version of Tile World

Once I heard someone request the old Chip's Challenge game, I really wanted to have it portably. And it was a simple game, so I could have just made a launcher for it for myself, but I couldn't release it because it's not free or open source.

So tonight, I found an open source alternative called Tile World, you can read more about it here. It's basicially just a clone of Chip's Challange, and it's pretty good too. I've checked and can't find it it saves settings or anything anywhere, and I don't think it would save settings, because there really is none, all I've found so far is it saves the game intro or something like that in its own folder named "save".

So yea, would anybody else want to have this portabally, or no? I'd appreciate some suggestions. The guy did a great job making it, make the wav files from scratch too. Check it out.

Screenshots and such

And could someone please let me know if they find the offical download, all I can find is the source

I just downloaded it and

I just downloaded it and tried it out...didnt get very far in the 3 minutes i played, but the guy did a great job cloning chips challenge, and for anybody that actually owns that game, they can import the original chips levelset. there's others available specifically for this game. I think it would make a great portable time waster for the 4 hr gap i have between classes

So you can import the level set?

I didn't even think of that. That's cool.
