NeggSweeper Guide by Jenn

NeggSweeper a new Neopets game. The concept is the same as Mine Sweeper on most windows computers. You click a tile and what ever number comes up is how many mines (red neggs) are next to it. Whether it be up, down, right, left, or even diagonal, be careful of the mines. If you click one you lose, that’s basically the only things I have to say about it. Oh if you’re new to the game start on the easy level till you fully understand the game. And keep an eye on how many tiles are left. It just might affect the choice of the tile you click.

For those that have played minesweeper (a game that comes with the Microsoft system) this is going to be a cinch; but I will cover every aspect of the game anyways…

First of all, read the rules:

To begin a game, choose which difficulty level you wish to play. The harder the level, the more the payoff will be for winning!

To play, you simply have to click on any of the neggs on the board. If you click on a negg that does not have any bad neggs surrounding it, it will clear all of the surrounding neggs as well, up until it reaches a negg that does have a trap next to it. You may even get a bonus if you clear multiple neggs with one click!

Background Information

Neggsweeper is a non-flash puzzle game with a rating of Medium and as the game says it is all about negg here. In this game there are two high score tables, one for a single game and one for cumulative games! There are 3 levels for you to choose which are “Easy”, “Medium” and “Hard”. The motive of this game is to click on all the good neggs and avoid clicking on the bad neggs which are RED in color for it means Game Over! This game will surely challenge even the toughest players! Yes it is!

The game is pretty simple once you get acquainted with it. It is exactly like minesweeper (which can most likely be found under “Games” in your start menu if you’re a Windows user).

The basic concept is that the numbers that appear tell you what the eight surrounding tiles contain. If the number that shows up is a three, for example, three of those tiles have red neggs. Click one and it’s game over. Here are some simple pointers to help you on your way to winning lots of neopoints (up to 3,000 neopoints a day!):

  1. Your first few times playing, play on easy. This will let you get a feel for the game.
  2. (more…)

Neggsweeper, as hopefully you’ve noticed, is nearly identical to Minesweeper, a common game included with Windows operation systems. In this game, you try to locate a number of “bad neggs” using your logic–and often a spot of luck. The objective is to locate all the “bad neggs”, using the ctrl-click command.

It costs 30 neopoints per play, and can win you lots more once you get obsessed (hard to avoid!). The trophy is a…well…pretty lame-looking negg 😛

The best way I can teach how to master Neggsweeper is to give a few common situations. Using these, you should be able to understand the logic necessary and then be able to formulate your own conclusions later on. For starters, choose a few random spots on the map. Hopefully, this will clear away about twenty tiles, more or less depending on your luck. If you unfortunately got a “bad negg”, restart and try again. You will now notice that there are a bunch of tiles with 1’s and 2’s and 3’s…in fact, these numbers can go up to 8, but it’s m most commonly between 1-4. These numbers represent how many “bad neggs” surround that tile horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. (All the tiles without numbers on them are considered cleared, and you won’t have to worry about them). Okay, now for the situations. If these look all messy, copy them into Notepad and use a fixed-width font (such as Courier New) to view them correctly.
