  Description     : Chip's Challenge Game Engine Emulation

 Tile World is an emulation of the game "Chip's Challenge".  "Chip's
 Challenge" was originally written for the Atari Lynx by Chuck Sommerville,
 and was later ported to MS Windows by Microsoft (among other ports).
 Please note: Tile World is an emulation of the game engine(s) only.  It does
 not come with the chips.dat file that contains the original level set.  This
 file is copyrighted and cannot be freely distributed.  The chips.dat file
 was originally part of the MS version of "Chip's Challenge".  If you have a
 copy of this version of the game, you can use that file to play the game in
 Tile World.  If you do not have a copy of this file, however, you can still
 play Tile World with the many freely available level sets created by fans of
 the original game, including CCLP2.  Because the version that Microsoft
 released introduced a number of changes to the rules of the game, Tile World
 is capable of emulating either the MS version or the original Atari Lynx
 version of the game.

 There is an intro.dat with 9 levels included that are free, so it can
go into main.  I am though taking a closer look into the CCLP2 (Chip's
Challenge Level Pack #2) for further DFSG free levels for the engine.
If I don't find any I hope there are at least some of them able to go
into non-free.

 So long,
Jetzt ist Sommer, egal ob man schwitzt oder friert,
Sommer ist, was in deinem Kopf passiert.
Es ist Sommer, ich hab das klar gemacht:
Sommer ist, wenn man trotzdem lacht.   -- Wise Guys, "Es ist Sommer"
