Chia Bomber II: a Real Blast!
Tyrannia: A world so bathed in history that it... well... became it. Despite the
apparent incivility of the inhabitants, this Neopian world offers wonderful things
from food to concerts, wheels to petpets, and some very fine games. You could
try playing an old favorite, like Pterattack, or a game of chance, like Grarrl
Keno, or a multiplayer game of strategy, like Kacheekers. However, as far and
wide as you go from the Jungle to the Plateau, you just won't find another game
as full of blasting fun as Chia Bomber II!
Now, while the old Chia Bomber was nice, the new Chia Bomber is definitely
an improvement. There are plenty of changes between new and the old, some of
which will help you out. An even better thing about this game, that was also
true with the old Chia Bomber, is that if you get a certain score and send it,
you'll receive a spiffy new avatar! Who in Neopia could resist such a magnificent
combination, of a great game and a great avatar?
You start out with three lives, and Geoffrey the Chia in the lower left hand
corner. There are two things important about this:
1. The first is that when you have zero lives, your game is over.
2. The second is that if you hold down your right arrow key when pressing
the begin game button, you will start in the upper left hand corner. This will
help you rack up the points you need, quickly!
Starting the game in this manner, continue to hold down the right arrow key
and the space bar. This should mean that you are moving right, firing shots.
Remember that if you hold down the space bar, a shot will be fired from your
water balloon gun every time your previous shot hits something. (Practically,
this means that you can always have one shot flying!) This will enable you to
kill all of the green Chias that are in the top row. Now, continue about killing
the Chias. Make sure that you end up in the top row when they are all killed.
Since you were careful to end up in the top row at the end of the last level,
you can employ this nifty little trick. When pressing the space bar to get to
the next level, hold down the right arrow key as before, and you will end up
in the upper left hand corner again. Proceed to kill all of the green and blue
Chias in the top row as you did in the first level.
Continue this way until you reach level four.
Level Four: the Yellow Chias
At level four, you will encounter two yellow Chias. This means that if you
were to move forward while holding the space bar, and the Chias were to be following
each other coming at you, your shots would not come fast enough to kill both
of them before you ran into one or both of them.
So, you can still kill a lot of the Chias in the same manner as in levels 1-3,
but you have to remember that if you have two yellow Chias or higher (as in,
a yellow Chia and a red Chia, a red and a red, a red and a black, a black and
a black, or a yellow and a black) coming at you, you have to stop at double
the safe distance for the color(s), and hold down the space bar to fire many
shots at once. Then, continue on your way killing the other Chias in that top
Level Eight: the Black Chias
When, during level eight, you encounter your first black Chia, be wary. In
previous levels, you might have started to get the impression that with a few
little tricks, you can quickly get rid of all the Chias that stand between you
and your goal. However, the black Chias, and their five lives, are quite hard
to kill. You can still get rid of them quickly by using the rapid-fire technique,
but you have to stay much farther away from these Chias if you want any chance
These next few levels are going to be quite hard. Some people might even go
so far as to say that this is the most difficult part of the game. You must
try your hardest not to use mines until Level 10, because otherwise you need
to have a certain number of lives left after the last level (Level 12) to get
a high enough score for the avatar. I still don't recommend using mines until
level nine in that case.
Using Your Mines
When you reach level ten, you can start using mines! This level, make sure
not to start the level by holding down the right arrow key when pressing the
space bar to start in the upper left hand corner, as you have in all of the
previous levels. Simply press the space bar, and you will start off in the lower
left hand corner.
Then, place your five mines. I find that the pattern below is quite effective,
although you can place them wherever you want. (The m represents the mines,
x represents a blank space, r represents a rock, and g represents where Geoffrey
should start firing from.)
Continue in the same style as Level 10 until you finish the game.
Now, pat yourself on the back, because you should have ample points for that
spiffy new avatar! Congratulations!
One last reminder: BEWARE OF ENEMY MINES!!!
Author's Note: There are other little useful tricks that you'll learn only
with practice. These are tricks that everyone uses differently, so that is why
I didn't put them in here. I hope that you all found my guide useful. Inspired
