Destruct-O-Match - Your Friend?
Hello. Today, I'm going to talk to you about my favourite game: Destruct-O-Match.
I'm not one of the really, really good Destruct-O-Match players who live in
the high score table and come out at night to laugh at anyone who isn't a really,
really good Destruct-O-Match player, but I can play the game and I like it.
First of all, we need to know how to get to the game. Click on "Games", then
click on "Puzzles", then go down until you see "Destruct-O-Match". Click on
it (not on the words, dear, it's the picture ABOVE the words). This will take
you to the Destruct-O-Match
page. In the middle of the page, there is a picture. Click there to start the
game, or if you want it to be bigger you can click on the words that say "click
for REALLY large version". Then click "Start". Pretty easy, really.
Then we get to the fun part: playing the game. There are lots of little blocks,
in four colours (yellow, green, purple and orange, in case anyone cares), and
the aim of the game is to get rid of as many of the little blocks as you can.
You get rid of them by clicking on a little block that is touching at least
one other little block of the same colour. When you do this, the little blocks
that were touching disappear with a crashing sound. You don't need to clear
all of the blocks to finish a level, you just need to have a certain number
of points, but it's good if you do because you get a 500 point bonus (Ooooh!
500 points!) which should let you get through to the last level. There are four
levels (which I like to call Level One, Level Two, Level Three and Level Four,
but you can call them Bob, Steve, Pete and Simon if you want), and with each
one you get a new (well, not new, but new to the game) colour. I'm not going
to tell you what colours, though, because that would ruin the surprise.
"Yes, but how can I get lots of Neopoints from the game?" you may be asking
now. Well, if you clear Level One and get a 500 point bonus, you'll probably
get at least 1000 points in the game, which gives you 500 Neopoints There are
a few good methods for clearing the first level: You can choose one colour there
seems to be a lot of and "save it for last", you can think very carefully about
which colour you are going to click on next before you click on it (if you sit
there for an hour without clicking on any blocks, you're thinking too carefully.
Take a few risks. Live a little.) or you could just click on random blocks and
hope for the best. If you get 500 Neopoints on each of your three games a day,
that's 1500 Neopoints a day. 1500 Neopoints may not seem like a lot, but it
adds up: that's 10500 Neopoints a week, 42000 Neopoints a month or 546000 a
year. You can work out how many Neopoints this would earn you in 34, 42 or 98
years if you want, but I'm not going to.
Anyway, with Destruct-O-Match and whatever you usually do to earn money, you
could be a millionaire someday. Also, one more tip: don't click on "send score"
unless you have a reasonably good score--I never send mine unless I've cleared
the first level. Thanks for listening (listening?) and I hope I've helped you
a least a bit.
