Summary

Get A Grip Chip is a fun game all about using your magnet to grab onto these circular points and swing across to other points. As you progress the points start acting differently like being attached to enemies or points that will fire you like a cannon, it all culminates into an experience that is really fun and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome. It’s very much a game that does one thing over and over but it’s polished and flows so well you can’t help but play it. On the way, you rescue battery bots so you have a bit of an extra incentive but I never felt like I needed to worry too much, levels were very small but dense at times with a sprinkling of endless runner sections. Whilst Get A Grip Chip might not be groundbreaking or particularly deep and immersive, it is fun short, and well designed.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
