did you ever play Chip's Challenge on the PC?

the title is self explanatory.

have any of you ever played this game way back when?
it was a puzzler where you have to guide this boy named chip and he had to collect a certain amount of tiles/coins/whatever they were in order to open the gate and finish the level.

I enjoyed Chip's Challenge a lot when I played it on the Atari Lynx, but I liked Crystal Mines II -- which is a bit similar -- even better.
Puzzling iPhone was searching for comparable games on the iPhone a while back, you can read about it here and here.
Of the games they mention, I tried some Bobby Carrot and liked it.

Yes, I used to play that game. A quick Google search reveals some interesting posts:

1) Chip's Challenge ported to iPhone in some capacity.

2) Similar games.

Loopy Lab as mentioned above is actually really good. I have since removed it from my phone as it hasn't been updated in ages. I love it, but I want more levels. The dev has claimed to be working on it. Great game though, was worth the price for me.
