Archives For The Darkest Faerie

The prospect of a Neopets video game has intrigued me for quite a while, and I am immensely pleased with how the game looks.

First off, the graphics are thirty times more better than the ones in the original game for PS1. Sure, we may have lost the minigames, but having a cool mote magic and Petpet power up system makes it all worthwhile.

Speaking of the mote magic system, it looks simple and easy to use. I’ve seen a screenshot with Tormund’s sword having snowflakes swirling around it, so we can bet that there are going to be a lot more elements than just fire, water, air, earth, dark and light. This is good, as Neopets now avoids the confusing concept of dual-type monsters. If only they could do the same for the TCG.

Everyone knew this was going to happen, and it did! Coming to the Play Station console comes an RPG styled Neopets game from The Code Monkeys, Ltd. The unveiling of the information came as a sudden wave, taking many by surprise, and to think that Neopets was able to keep the entire production under wraps? They ought to be commended! A sampling of the game should be available to the public at the Electronic Entertainment Expo for 2003. The following information was taken from
