Welcome to our review of Get-A-Grip Chip and the Body Bugs, a game that is both fun and educational in its own way.
Unblock the human body’s digestive system and defeat the Body Bugs with Get-A-Grip Chip, a synthetic white blood cell, and his trusty white blood cell pals. When piloting Chip, you can’t jump, but you can sail over pits of bodily fluids, battle the Body Bugs invading your insides, and unlock the knowledge hidden in the body’s white blood cells that Chip needs to get things flowing again! With a meticulously designed world, new gameplay, and new characters, Get-A-Grip Chip and the Body Bugs is sure to swallow you up! Activate the body’s white blood cells, defeat the Body Bugs, and race your friends (or rivals) for the top spots on the arcade-style leaderboards.
hip still moves side-to-side, grapples to anchor points, and then launches off of them – in addition, Chip learns! To clean out the insides, Chip must build an understanding of the escalating complexity of the digestive system’s parts and functions. You’ll build a truly masterful degree of knowledge and dexterity through the digestive system.
Survive the onslaught of obstacles and you’ll be rewarded with nuggets of neurons and walloping white blood cells to get the digestive system flowing again. The more cells you seek, the sooner they’ll unlock new levels, bringing Chip closer to the ultimate goal: re-opening the digestive system and sploosh! Compete with your friends to take over the game’s arcade-style leaderboards! Hook, launch, and dodge your way through all twelve areas of the digestive system to get your initials on the top times of each leaderboard.
Get-A-Grip Chip and the Body Bugs is a really simplistic game that is kind of fun. The mechanics are really basic as you just move to the sides and use your grabber to really move around vertically and diagonally. While this may sound boring and limiting, it only feels so at first. The more used you end up getting to this system, the easier moving around it becomes and at the same time, it just makes the game more fun.
In itself, Get-A-Grip Chip and the Body Bugs is very easy, at least I never really had any issues. I just played and played and played, the silly educational part about the human body aside. This is just a fun cheap but short game, those 11 levels are not going to keep you entertained for long. Then again, there is a limit to how long you can drag a mechanic like this…
In conclusion, while limited in its mechanics, Get-A-Grip Chip and the Body Bugs does get a few things right and it is quite good for its low price point. I am curious to see if there will ever be more?
