A fake exit is any of three tiles which look slightly like an exit, but are not real exits; instead, all three of them function as walls. One is a Chip character in an exit, similar to that seen when Chip completes Fireflies or Special; the other two are slightly darker shades of blue compared to the real exit, with some black mixed in. One has a light blue outer layer, similar to the real exit, and one has a dark blue outer layer which makes it easier to spot as fake.
Compare the fake tiles:
with the real exit:
Fake exit tiles are used for the endgame sequence, but do not appear in any Chip's Challenge 1 levels. Like Burned Chips, Drowned Chips, Swimming Chips, or not used tiles, fake exits are not compatible with the original Lynx.
In early versions of Tile World Lynx, fake exits were read as real exits, and could be entered like any other exit. However, this has since been changed, and they are now acting walls. Only the "Chip in exit" variant has its own graphic in Tile World Lynx; the other two are displayed as walls.
The term fake exit is also used to refer to exits with clone machines under them, such as the ones at the start of Quad-Boot. Such exits cannot be entered by Chip, but unlike the other fake exits, cannot be identified visually.
