A Quick Guide to Free the Crops
“Welcome to Meridell, home to some of the finest fruits and vegetables in the
whole of Neopia!” reads a sign as you arrive at this wonderful place, full of
games, crops, and SLORGS! Everywhere you turn, you can see those small, slimy
petpets. It’s like an invasion. As you try to make your way through the path,
trying not to squish any of them, you notice a Yurble that’s carrying a strange
You go to him as fast as you can; amazed at the sight of the technology he’s
carrying. “This is a ‘Slorgeriser X4’, an invention of mine. This machine spits
out balls of Slorg-B-Gone,” he explains.
“Slorg-B-Gone?” you ask, confused.
“Yes, these balls that are thrown by the X4 are used to repel the Slorgs. I
have decided that it is my duty to make crops Slorg-free,” says the Yurble.
“But I seem to have a problem I can't resolve,” he says sadly.
“Anything I could do to help?” you ask him, edging him to keep on talking.
“Well, I need to make a quick visit to the Lost Desert, to buy some new items,
to perfect the X4, but nobody in Meridell wants to take care of the Slorg situation,
nor do they want to learn to use the Slorgeriser X4.”
You start thinking. Your mind spins in circles until you remember that the
Neopets Team announced that there was an avatar for this situation, and what’s
most important; you still need that avatar for your collection. “I could help
you,” you tell the Yurble, and after these words left your mouth, you see how
his eyes start illuminating.
“Thanks! You are a nice Neopian,” he says. “Though,” he continues, “I think
the reason you wish to help is to claim the Attack of the Slorg Avatar, isn’t
You nod shyly as you realize he read your mind.
“Worry not! I’ll still trust you with the Slorgeriser, and you can tell everyone
you know, so they could use it too. You only need to aim the Slorgeriser right
and left and press the Space Bar to fire the Slorg-B-Gone Balls. Match at least
three Slorgs of the color at the same time to repel them, but if you fail to
do so, they will increase in number - so watch out!” With this, the Yurble ends
his explanation and leaves.
You start thinking of what he said and come up to the conclusion that it doesn’t
sound too hard, and start working right away. However, after various tries,
you find out that it’s too hard, because that tricky Yurble didn’t tell you
that there were Special Slorg-B-Gone balls, and that the laser of the machine
kept failing. You start getting depressed because you can't top 500 Slorgs,
and you can't get the avatar… what could you do?
This is where this guide begins. With it, I’ll try
to guide you through the game, so you can find the easiest way to get a high
score and get your avatar. So continue reading and good luck!
1. First of all, you need to know that there are special Slorg-B-Gone balls.
You can recognize them because they seem to be glowing. These are the effects
they produce: The Slorg Block (blue ones) divide the line of Slorgs in two;
The Slowdown (green ones) obviously, like the name states, slows down the Slorg
line; The Super Slorgeriser (brown ones) explode two or three Slorgs around
the spot where you throw it; Multi Slorg (red balls) make your Slorg line get
bigger; Puddle Water (the grey one) is a type of Slorg-B-Gone ball that makes
your Slorg line all of the same color; and (finally) the Slorg Destruct (pink
ones) eliminates all the Slorgs behind the spot where you throw it.
2. Second of all, you need to learn to aim so when you lose the laser, it’s
not THAT HARD to get points. This can be done through practice alone.
3. Third tip: try to get combo bonuses. To do this, try to have in your Slorg
line two Slorgs of each color, so when you throw the Slorg-B-Gone ball, you
can destroy multiple color Slorgs. This gives you bonuses, depending on how
many Slorgs of various colors were eliminated.
4. Another helpful tip is to try to kill most of the Slorgs when they are
near the tube where they came from, since this also gives you a bonus.
5. During the game, Slorgs are NOT the only thing you can hit. There is also
one Crazy Frog that appears from time to time below the Slorg Tube. Hitting
it gives you 25 points. I suggest you hit it as much as you can.
6. As the game moves on, you may notice that many Slorg-B-Gone balls are not
of the colors you need. What could you do? Simply throw them away! Either that,
or throw them to the Slorg line (it’ll get bigger though), and try to get combos.
7. Get to know the Special Slorg-B-Gone balls, so you can discover which suits
you the best. My personal favorites are the “Slorg Destruct” (color pink) and
the “Puddle Water” (color grey), both previously explained. My suggestion for
Puddle Water is to wait until the Slorg line is half-way to the crop so you
have time to find the matching color Slorg-B-Gone ball, and then use it. For
the Slorg Destruct, I would recommend using it when the Slorgs almost reach
the crop. This gives you the advantage of destroying a great number of Slorgs
in one single hit.
8. If you feel you need an ‘extra’ life in the game, it IS possible to have
ONE! The only thing you need to do is type the word ‘marrow’ during the game,
for an extra life! Use this wisely.
9. Try to memorize the path that the Slorgs will take in each level, and practice
as much those in which you have the most difficulty.
10. Finally all I have to say, is BEWARE of a single event that may ‘curse’
your game: The Revenge of the Slorgs! This ‘revenge’ jinxes the Slorgeriser
X4 making it turn the opposite direction of that you want (therefore, if you
turn it left, it goes right; and if you turn it right, it goes left). Be extra
careful, since it makes that specific level a bit harder.
These are some of the tips that I’ve discovered that suit me best while playing
Attack of the Slorgs. Currently my high score is 6618 points, with a gold trophy.

But before I end this guide, I just want to remark that the best way to get
better at the game, once you know what special effects the Slorg-B-Gone have,
is to practice a LOT! Good luck helping Meridell and good luck getting the avatar
and a trophy if you aim for it!
