Chip's Challenge Level Pack 3, often called CCLP3, is the third official set of 149 levels for Chip's Challenge. The levels are taken from the many user-created level sets available on the Internet. Unlike Chip's Challenge Level Pack 2, this set is compatible with both the MS and Lynx versions of the game. The set definition of compatibility is when neither the MS or Lynx solution is significantly different or more difficult than the other. [1] CCLP3 levels were first accepted for submission in September 2006, but official announcements about CCLP3 itself did not begin until February 12, 2010. As with the CCLP2 voting, two categories are defined on the ballot: fun and difficulty. The 147 levels voted most fun are in the final set, while the distribution of votes for difficulty will be the general order of CCLP3, with slight alterations as deemed necessary. On December 13, 2010, the release date was confirmed for December 24 at midnight GMT and on 18 december, CCLP3 Leaks were announced. The set has since been released.

Level 1 Contest

Unlike CCLP2, the first level of CCLP3 was voted on separately, and is expected to be a review of the basic, and some advanced, concepts of Chip's Challenge. There were eleven levels in this ballot, each of which were nominated by other Chipsters. Its voting began on April 30.

The level in Bold won the contest. Levels with Italics are the ones that still got into CCLP3 through the regular voting process.

Cypher Level Contest

Like CC1 and CCLP2, CCLP3 has a Cypher level. Level designers could create their own level with three passwords and submit it to the CCLP3 staff, whilst keeping it a secret. Like the level one contest, it's voting began on April 30. The identities of the level designers were kept a secret until the voting ended.

The level in Bold won the contest.
