Melinda time

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Melinda time is a term used to refer a time higher than the current bold time that theoretically could be obtained, but would require extreme luck and/or skill to obtain - though most commonly the former. They are almost always caused by the use of random elements.

CC1 Melinda times[edit]

# Name Bold Melinda Reason
23 Blobnet 436 444 Requires no interference from the blobs
133 Blobdance 949 951 Requires no interference from the blobs

Note: Blobdance is naturally untimed. For how to optimize untimed levels, see T-Chip.

Undetermined[edit]

There are some special cases in Chip's Challenge 1 where it is unknown if a higher Melinda time even exists in the first place. They are as such:

# Name Bold Theory Reason for Melinda Reason why undetermined
127 Skelzie 454 455 Requires a blob to walk on a green button Unknown if later cycles will allow for TSG
146 Cake Walk 717 722 Requires random force floors to delay a block for 5 seconds Unknown if 717 route allows for 722
