I was a teen when this game was released for PCs (in the 90s) but could never complete the 149 levels to enter the Bit Buster Club. But I loved playing this game and sometimes even ignored my studies for it. The mention of Chip's Challenge reminded me of my good ol' golden days

This, certainly, is the map of the month. Smiley

As mentioned in the first post, the NES Game Atlas is simply a book I really like; it was the first Nintendo Power Player's Guide, which featured full maps of many of the most popular NES franchises.

This topic encouraged mappers to essentially make that book obsolete, which we did, by not only mapping the same games covered, but the sequels that were not out at the time of the original book's release.

We extended the idea to create a topic/request for a hypothetical "Super NES Game Atlas" - while the book doesn't exist, it was simply to map the same series' continuation in 16-bits, which was also completed.

The idea was also brought to the Game Boy in a topic/request for a hypothetical "Game Boy Game Atlas", but after five years and a month, it's still missing one game - Super Mario Bros. Deluxe still isn't complete.  Ironically, you'd think it would be the most popular game to be mapped, since it's a remake of the most popular game in its day.  Even Nintendo hasn't forgotten about it, as it made an appearance towards the end of the Nintendo World Championships 2017.  Strange, eh?

So, just like any other maps, these aren't to "play", but to view.

I wonder - after all this time - have people been misreading "recreation" in this topic header as in "recreational" instead of as in "re-creation"?  I intended the latter, as we are recreating something, not necessarily having any more fun (as in recreational) than any other mapping project.  I leave out the hyphen here because that doesn't seem consistent - after all, we say "redo", "react" and "refund", not "re-do", "re-act" or "re-fund", so why not "recreate" instead of "re-create"?  At work the other day, I used the word "reask" in an email which I wonder if it caused confusion...

I recall Peardian saying somewhere or somewhen about the nostalgia behind this game being the reason for it being mapped.  Not every game featured for the Maps Of The Month have to be the best-looking game ever made.  And in my research it seems this game did have a fair following, it isn't just Peardian who likes it.

Personally, I'm a fan of a game from Everett Kaser Software called Hero's Heart, which is a very similar type of top-down puzzle game.  There is an enhanced version called Hero's Heart Gold (sounds like Pokémon) though I may be remembering incorrectly and it may just be called Hero Gold.  (Just did some Googling (quite limiting at work, especially looking up anything about games) and it seems there was a 1998 sequel to Hero's Heart called Hero Defiant.  Hmmm.)

Peardian, I like this guy. His maps are fantastic, and how surprising that he goes and maps this game.

I have played this game last summer. I didn't like it to be honest (The level design is kind of wonky to me), but I understand the idea of it and how it gave inspiration to many puzzle games to come. For example, a game called Wonderland which I have just fully re-mapped. You can see the reminiscence of that game to Chip's Challenge.

I have some more ideas for mapping tonight. There is this particular series of maps I would like to redo, which I have done about 3-4 years ago. These are maps based on the obscure PC puzzle game Wonderland. I would like to replace all of the older "Ripped" maps of the game, because I thought they were pretty rough around the edges, and replace them with cleaner "Captured" variations. I believe this would be appropriate as I have rarely seen such map type.

What I plan to do is basically take one screenshot of each level. There is some kind of cheat-thing you can do which is manipulate the camera to view certain parts of the map. You can even zoom, etc. This is basically how it will be for this next quick map project. I expect to do it all tonight, and upon submission, I will request a removal of the "Ripped" maps and have them replace the "Captured" ones.

In other words, something you may have noticed is I never worked through the Monster House GBA maps. It came to my attention a few months ago that mapping it was kind of annoying for me. I was using VBA to try mapping the game by the way, but I didn't have much luck doing it the way I wanted. I have decided I am not going to work on this game.
