Hi, guest! Welcome to my page! My name is MiaMono, and I'm a Mynci.
Mynci Beach Volleyball
There are six rounds. To go on to the next round, you must win. In order to win, you have to reach 12 points AND beat your opponent by two. (In other words, if the score is 11-11, you will then have to reach 13 points and keep your opponent at 11.)
If you hit the parrot at the top of the screen, you will get a bonus. There are several different things that can happen. These can be good or bad.
-Supersize: This will make you turn into a giant mynci. (This one doesn¡¦t really matter, just keep playing the same way. HOWEVER, if your opponent turns into a giant, it is VERY easy to score points on him, even in the later, harder rounds. What you do if he is a giant is serve from almost the back of your side and hit it just over his head. If you can perfect this shot, he will miss every time.)
-Superjump: This will make you jump extra high. On the negative side, you stay in the air for a long time, so if you hit the ball wrong, or if your opponent hits it back quickly, you will not have a chance to hit it again. My advice when you have superjump is to NOT jump ever. When your opponent has superjump, it's great! He¡¦ll miss the ball a lot.
-Superspeed: This will make you move a lot faster. When you get this, try not to hold down your arrow keys, as you will move a lot faster than you expect to. It *can* make it harder to get to the ball, but if you stay calm and focused, being on superspeed will not limit your ability to score points. When your opponent has superspeed, he is more likely to miss the ball. Hooray!
-Watch the Turdle: This will cause a turdle to come up on your opponent¡¦s side. When he steps on the turdle, he will be locked in place for 2 and a half seconds. Use this time wisely! Try to get it over (or under, depending on his location) his head and score an easy point. On the other hand, when a turdle shows up on your screen, try your best to avoid him. If you hit a bonus before stepping on the turdle, the turdle will disappear. What I try to do is when a turdle shows up, I avoid him until I score a point, then as I am holding the ball, I step on the turdle before I serve. It's an easy way to not give your opponent the opportunity to score. If you can¡¦t avoid the turdle at any costs, try to jump on him moving, this way, you will kind of slide for a second and have a better chance at hitting the ball.
-Big Ball: This will make your ball bigger. This makes it easier for you to hit the ball (however, it also makes it easier for your opponent to hit, which is not such a good thing.)
-Big Net: This will make the net very tall. It makes it a lot harder to get the ball over, so take your time and hit the ball HIGH. On the plus side, your opponent has a hard time getting it over and is highly likely to make a mistake.
-Small Net: This will make the net very short, and very easy to get the ball over. It makes it easy for your opponent as well. I don't like having the short net as it's harder to score points on your opponent.
I think that's all of the bonuses. Okay, now that we know what everything is that will come up, here are some tips for scoring points.
For me, the best way to get points is directly off of your serve. Position is EVERYTHING is this game. I will give you some of my pointers, but I suggest you play around with serving to see what works best for you.
As you load the game, take a look at the beach floor. There are different shades of sand, as a result of the shadow from the tree. See the part that looks a little like a claw? Stand just barely in front of that, and throw the ball up. Now move back just a little, and then jump to the right and up as you hit the ball. This will cause the mynci to sort of spike the ball. If you do it right, it will hopefully go behind your opponent's back and make it harder for him to hit back. Easy points, especially in rounds 1, 2 and 3. (When your opponent is giant, start a little further back, but use the same spiking method of serving. If it goes behind his back, you¡¦ll get a point. I found this was true even in round six. I like it when my opponent is giant.)
Your opponent gets progressively better with each round. To get the avatar, it is reported that you need to beat all six rounds with a score of 800 or more. I will update this with how the scoring works as soon as I can. I need to take a closer look.
I suggest trying to score as many points as you can without letting your opponent score in the first round. In the later rounds, you just want to beat him, it doesn't really matter by how many points.
After a little bit of practice, the first three rounds will be very easy to beat. The next three rounds are harder. My only advice is to be patient. Just calmly keep hitting the ball back at him, don't try anything too extreme. He will eventually make a mistake. It requires a lot of patience!
Here are a couple more tips that help me. I actually try NOT to hit the bird and get the bonuses. There¡¦s too much of a chance it will be something that is hard for me to play with. I prefer letting my opponent hit the bonuses in the hopes that it is something that will hurt him and make it easier for me to score points.
We LIKE it when our opponent has superjump, superspeed, or the big net. He is MUCH easier to score on. So when your opponent has one of these things, here is a little piece of advice that helped me a lot. Don't serve to him until the bird is off his side. Sometimes if you serve it to him and the bird is right there, he will hit the bird and get a different bonus. I don't know if that makes sense. Probably not. Lol Just NM me and I¡¦ll try and explain it better. Okay! I think that is everything I can think of right now. In the meantime, good luck everyone on your quest for the avy! Any questions, feel free to ask.
I will double check this to make sure, but I'm pretty sure the scoring system works like this: 10 points at the end of a round for each point you scored MORE than your opponent plus a bonus of 50.
