To move the chip forward and backward automatically, press the button in the corresponding direction.

Limitations of this version ‼


You can create a field with a maximum size of 50x50 chips.
Once you have created the field in the composition, you should avoid deleting or adding new layers, as this can cause issues with the animation of falling chips after an explosion.
Chips will only fall if 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 chips are exploded. If more than 5 chips are selected for the explosion, any chips stacked on top will remain in place.
