GAMES ROOM - So you want to win some nice trophies to impress your friends,
eh? This week’s article is about NeoQuest, Fetch, and the Dark Faerie Quests/Illusen’s
This game requires some luck, a little thinking, and a ton of patience. This
is the only RPG on Neopets. You control the hero and you must defeat the evil
Jahbal. You start off in town where you can heal, make some weapons, or make
some armour. Picking the right skills to begin with is very crucial when you
are playing on InSaNe difficulty. When you start, go fight some weak monster
near town and gain 6 levels then head into the caves. In the caves, level up
to at least 10 or 11 before you fight Xantan. The pattern is the same throughout
the game: level up, beat a boss, and get new weapons and armour. Here’s a little
warning: On evil difficulty, there is another boss after Jahbal. If you die
while fighting this boss, all of the creatures will disappear and you will not
be able to find any more potions. This problem doesn’t exist on Insane because
you have to restart the game in you die. You can play NeoQuest here.
My strategy: I like to use life magic and shock magic. I pick a shock magic
wand until the very last one. The Moonstone Staff (life) is the last life weapon
you can get and it heals 4 hp every turn and can sometimes heal 45. Additional
strategies can be found at http://www.neoquestmaps.com
This requires a bit of patience and a lot of luck. You control the mutant
Blumaroo with the Tentacompass. The object is to find the requested food and
then find the exit. The levels are always square. You will always start by the
edge of the level. You can tell when you have reached the edge of the level
by looking at the size of the walls. If there are 2 rows of walls with no space
to walk in between them, you are at the edge of the level. The food that you
have to find is always in the centre of the level and the exit is always along
the edge of the level. The exit can either be in the middle of the edge, or
at the corner of a level. The food you are looking for is impossible to miss
because it is so brightly coloured. To pick up the food, simply walk onto it.
Many people don’t know this, but there are more than just 3 difficulties. There
are 5 difficulties. You can unlock them by getting consecutive wins on the hardest
difficulties you can play. The high score system takes consecutive scores, not
just single game scores. If you lose your game, you get to keep your score,
but you can’t add on to it unless you get a better score. The Neopoint values
for the difficulties go like this: (these are only approximate)
These are the amount of NPs and score you get for completing the difficulties.
You can play Fetch here.
My strategy: I play on Fiendish until I beat it once, then I play Insane to
raise my score even more. As for actually playing the game, I try to keep myself
directed to the middle of the level, because I know that’s where the food is.
After that, I try to find the closest edge and follow it until I find the exit.
Another strategy I found works is to find the exit first and then find the food.
That way, you can just retrace your steps to get to the exit.
