The idea of Bumble Beams is simple; some robot petpets are lost in the Recycling Centre and you have to bring them to safety before they are destroy err, recycled. You do so by tilting beams that look a bit like seesaws and dropping them into little containers on the conveyer belt below.

The petpets drop from up above onto the beams. Whichever beam they land on you are in control of and handle using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard. You rock the beams back and forth, balancing the little rolly polly robot petpet and moving it from one beam to another until you drop it into one of the little containers in which its carried away to safety. Once its been put it the container – or dropped and lost forever – the next guy will drop in.

There are several strategies that you can use in order to win this game. I use these every time I play, and so far I have NEVER lost. Following these simple rules almost guarantees that you will get that 1st place trophy.

1) This is the most important — NEVER cheat, unless you have to. In the first 2 rounds or so you may not get caught, but in the later rounds, you will get caught most of the time.

2) Put down the cards that you only have one of first. This leaves you with more pairs, triples, and so on, which makes it easier to tell who is cheating.

Caption Competition Tips

Winning Captions

I have noticed a few things about the winners of the caption contests. Here are the things that I have noticed

1: They are funny
2: The winning captions sometimes refer back to previous caption contests
3: A lot of the winning captions pick on the tiniest details

Keep these in mind when you write your captions. – Kirk Langsjoen kelangsjoen@mn.rr.com

Now, nothing makes you better at these kind of games than practice, but there are quite a few things you should remember. First of all, check the tips for this game, as there are two very good “cheats” there, although the radar isn’t as useful as a free bonus life.

When playing Bouncy Supreme, the first few rounds you get a laser. Experiment with different angles and powers, and see where exactly you land on the screen. Do this for a few minutes until you get the hang of where you will land based on where you put the laser. I normally do this each day before I start playing to get my accuracy better. This may sound pointless, but it will help you aim your shots later when the game actually starts getting harder. Once you are comfortable with how that works, start a new game, and get to the first level with coins where it takes away your laser. Try to make the jump, if you mess up, I suggest you start over as the laser levels are near impossible to miss on (I actually missed once while I wasn’t paying attention, but I have since got my act together) You might want to start over if you screw up on the first 10 jumps if you are patient, and want to earn lots of neopoints. If you don’t really care, play as you want.

I was once just another Blue Wocky with no muscles or nothing. Now I am a cool Cloud Koi, at least for right now I am. And I am also stronger and tougher than I once was, at least for now I am, you never know with the Lab Ray, huh? I don’t remember much of my previous owner, or owners at that, guess the Neopian Pound thing was just too traumatizing thus causing me to block that part of my life out. All I remember is what seemed like weeks and months on in of laying curled up behind the bars of a cage, listening to other Neopets cry and beg for mercy and to be released from their prison. Seeing many Neopets get dropped off and taken to their cells and a few being adopted…as the ones left behind yelled to the new owner, begging him or her to please reconsider, and crying as the new owner left. It was depressing, really it was. Then one day all I remember was hearing a cage door nearby open up, I ignored it as I heard them constantly throughout the day all day every day. Then a shadow fell over me and I felt a strong and warm pair of hands slip underneath my armpits and left me up. “Hey there lil’ fella! What’s YOUR name?” he asked me. “Wocky_Dude78?” I answered. He turned to the mean old techo who unnervingly had a happy smirk upon his face, and my new owner said, “Yes sir, I will take him!” MY eyes grew bigger than my head and filled half-way with tears and I asked, “Really? Your gonna take me home??” “Yep! Sure am!” said my new owner. I uncontrollably thrusted my face into his shoulder as I burst out with tears of happiness. Finally, I was free again. He carried me in his arms towards the doors as I looked over his shoulder and saw the Uni and the Techo both staring at me with big wide smiles and I smiled back at them and I knew that everything was alright. When we got outside a very cold gust of wind hit us but it did not bother me, I was happy, happy to feel that nice cold gust of wind, that fresh air, that freedom. I looked down and towards the door where there sat three Neopets, a Red Ixi who stood at attention once she noticed us, a Mutant Cybunny who was sleeping and barely creeked open her eyes to notice me, and a Chokato Chia who wobbled over towards me and my new owner as he placed me down and the Chokato Chia started poking me in my forehead as he asked me, “Who are you?” “Wocky_Dude78.” I shyly answered. Then my new owner said, “Guys, this is our newest addition to our family, his name is Wocky_Dude78!” And the Red Ixi burst out with, “HI!!!…..My name is AngelAkashaAlukard!” And the Mutant Cybunny looked at me out of the corner of her eyes said, “Yes, quite. I am AbiahCodestone.” Then she proceeded to fall back asleep. The Chokato Chia walked up still closer and gave me a big ole’ hug as he said, “My name is KroniKK666! I love you!” “Come on guys, lets go.” my new owner said calmly. “Where are we going?” asked AngelAkashaAlukard and with the reply of, “Yeah!” from KroniKK666, trying to be funny as always, the jester that he is. “We are going to Krawk Island!” he answered. “Why? Is it time to play the Pawkeet Treasure Game again?” asked AngelAkashaAlukard. “No AngelAkashaAlukard, today is Wocky Day and thus, all Wockies get free training at the Training Academy, so thus I am taking Wocky_Dude78 to the Training Academy for some free training.” answered my new owner and KroniKK666 replied, “Oh…” “Krawk Island huh? Sounds NICE is it a cool place?” I said with enthusiasm as my voice trembled with excitement, knowing in the back of my mind that it was gonna but a tough yet fun challenge. Nobody really answered me though, guess they didn’t hear me…oh well hehe. That isn’t what mattered, what mattered was that I was FREE, free and in LOVE with my new FAMILY! A couple hours later we run into a large mass body of water and I am thinking, “Oh no! What do we do now?!” not thinking, “Duh, you dum dum! Krawk Island is an ISLAND!!” But anywho, a few minutes later, maybe about half an hour or so, give or take a few minutes and whatnot, a medium built ship pulls up and an old three-legged Eyrie walks down the plank to the main land and says, “All aboard to Krawk Island!! That’ll be 50 NeoPoints per family please!” So my new owner handed him 50 NeoPoints and was handed a ticket as we started walking up the plank to the boat. And when we got to the end of the plank I JUMPED onto the boat letting out a loud shout of JOY! We finally “shoved off” as we headed away from the terra firma. We went inside the boat and enjoyed a nice little dinner as we stuffed ourselves so full we had tummy aches hehe. By the time we were done with THAT it was already starting to get dark and I insisted upon lounging out on the deck. Man! The smell of the salty ocean breeze, the nice cold wind, and sent of food from the dining room as wells as the sounds of the crashing waves and calling seagulls, man was I loving’ it! I am guessing about an hour or two we finally arrive at Krawk Island, with all the places lit up, it was magnificently beautiful, know? My owner and the others t5ook me to yet another ship were, ironically there was that three-legged Eyrie again and he said, “ARR! How might I help ye maties?!” “Yes, I would like to enroll my Wocky into the Training Academy for some training, it IS free for him today, isn’t it? What with it being Wocky Day and whatnot?” “ARR! Yes, that it be!” “He looks at me and says, “And who might ye be lad?” Scared half out of my wits I managed to spit out, “Wocky_Dude78 sir.” “ARR Yes, well, jus’ go straight down that hall to the room where the others are training too, and I shall be there in a minute.” I looked at him, scared stiff, almost petrified, seemingly not acknowledging what him had just said as he stares at me with a mean look and then goes, “ARRR!!!!!!” which scares me into running the other direction in fright, right towards the training room and I hear him says two my owner, “ARR! He should be done in about 3 hours! ARR!” Yes sir, I shall be back sir!” says my new owner and I watch him turn around and leave. I rush out to the training deck to say goodbye to him and when I saw he I said, “HEY! You ARE gonna come back and get me, right?” “Of course I shall! I shall be back in a couple hours, I am just going sight seeing, ok? replied my new owner and I answered him, “Ok!” I then turned around and started making friends and playing fight with them, until the old Eyrie showed up, and we training all night, but that was pretty much a lot of fun too, know? Well Eyrie day has came and gone and I am free at last and my new owner says, “Now lets see, what shall we do with you now?” “Huh? What do you mean? Are you planning on getting rid of me now??” I asked franticly. And he answered, “Oh NO NO NO! Certainly NOT! I just got figure out WHAT I will do with you next, that’s all!” and I replied, “Oh, ok!” About a minute later he burst out, :I got it! You will be my new Lab Rat!” “Pardon me?” I replied and he answers, “There is this Lab Ray that will give you super powers and great strength!” I thought and said, “Oh cool!” And since then I have gained a little bit of strength, and a little bit of toughness, and gone from a regular old Blue Wocky to a more suiting Cloud Koi, a Cloud Koi named Wocky_Dude78. – deadsoulwithoutyou
