Chip's Challenge 1, or CC1 for short, is the original level set released on the Atari Lynx in 1989, Windows Entertainment Pack 4 (WEP4) in 1992, and later with the Best of Windows Entertainment Pack (BOWEP) in 1994. It consists of 149 (148 in the Lynx version) levels which Chip must complete.

As these were the first Chip's Challenge levels, they begin by introducing the functions of the tiles in the lesson levels, then tie them together in Nuts and Bolts, and add new elements only sparingly from then on out. There are very few levels of high difficulty in CC1 compared to CCLP2 or CCLP3, as knowledge of puzzle design and game mechanics were comparatively primitive.

The levels were designed in approximately three parts: 1/3 of them by Chuck Sommerville, another third by a professional puzzle designer (Bill Darrah), and the rest by Chuck's team of programmers and playtesters: James Donald, M. Peter Engelbrite, Victoria Hanson, RG Goudy, Stephen Jungels, Scott Nelson, and Pete Wierzbicki. The initials of Pete W. are left on Block Factory; Bill is known to have designed Castle Moat and Chuck On the Rocks.

Among aficionados of this type of puzzle game, the windows version (usually referred to as the MS version) of Chip's Challenge (usually referring only to CC1 in this case) is famous for its glitches and busted levels. This was a result of changed mechanics from Lynx to MS and little playtesting in the MS version. Although there were many levels made easier, such as Scoundrel, some levels became far more difficult; the level that would become the Spirals corruption had to be changed because the walkers would spread far quicker under MS rules, and levels with extensive use of hot blocks such as Block N Roll and Special became frustrating trial and error challenges to solve due to the inability to block slap.
