|Level set||Chip's Challenge 1|
|Bold time||402 MS / 377 Lynx|
Block Buster is the 89th level in Chip's Challenge 1, and along with Blobnet, is unequivocally on a Most Hated Level list. The incessantly bouncing blocks combined with precise timing, profuse use of [1/2] waits and spring steps, almost impossibly complex Slide Delay, and many different situations where one mistake sends you packing leads to what is likely a very long work session to even complete Block Buster. Before playing Block Buster, practice the [1/2] wait.
The 402 bold time is one of the most difficult routes to execute that does not use random elements, largely because of the continuous use of the [1/2] wait and quickly changing situations. A simpler 390 solution with the same principles is also shown below. Since there is no other dependable way to complete Block Buster consistently (as opposed to BlockSlide, for instance), aim for either the 390 or 402.
The full 402 route is as follows: U 2R D 2U RD 2U (clears out a block) [1/2, to allow landing] RD 2R U, all the way up to the red key, and then back with 6U 2L 3D 3L UL [2, to allow landing] R [1/2, to allow passage through] U 2D [1/2, to allow landing] UDR [1/2, to allow safe U step] UL 2D LUL [1/2, to eliminate block echo] and then UL to reach the green key.
Run all the way through the three locks, then wait [1/2] in front of the red button and continue 4D [1/2] 2D [1/2] 2D 3R 2U [1/2] and then all the way through the path and over the first three buttons of the second block machine. Wait [1/2] here and then escape through this machine and over the four buttons in the last room. In this machine, you want to push the blocks to reach the exit, but at the right time, of course. Play off the fourth button D 3R [1/2] 2U [1/2] ULU 2R L, and then collect all the blocks from top to bottom, with no further pauses required.
