Welcome to my Freaky Factory guide. I know, I know; I don't have the trophy, so why should you take advice from me? Because I can get the avatar, and I find it very easy but I've found that most people find it to be difficult.
Ever since the game has existed I have LOVED it. My gallery is even dedicated to it and I have a spiffy pet.
I hope my love for the game can teach y'all something! :) Click here to get to the game, and let's begin!
NP Ratio: 3.49
Average Difficulty: 4.6
High Score Table
I'm sure we all know by now how this game basically works. All you need is your mouse.
Different coloured blobs of liquid Kreludite (red, yellow, blue) scroll across the top. Click them and try to get it to land in the pot of their same colour in order to create plushies. Click on the Grundo Thief to knock him down so he can't yoink any of your plushies.
And really it is as simple as that. Plus a few other things.
After you click "start game" you will see something like this:
In orange is your score.
In purple is the clock. The clock simply tells you how much time is left for the round. The less time the better because you can get bonus points! :D
In blue is the indicator that tells you how many plushies you have to make before you complete the level. Feel free to make more than the given amount (it gets you bonus points ;-)).
In yellow is the indicator that tells you what kind of plushie you need to make. The one pictured means you need to make ONE BLUE plushie. You can make SEVEN different colours of plushies and either 1, 2, or 3 at a time in any combination.
In green is the conveyor belt. The plushies move on it from right to left, and once doing that (safely!) two things happen: 1) the "## toys left" goes down by one 2) your score increases by x (more on this later).
In pink are the vats. The colours in order go: red, yellow, blue (you can tell this from their colours on them).
The brown stars are were the blobs come out of.
In red is the spillage-meter. The more spills you make, the higher the thing goes. Careful not to spill too much!
A nearly full spillage-meter.
In white are the buttons to stop the game (no pausing!) and to turn the sound on or off (pictured: sound off).
Knowing what size blob puts in how much Kreludite is important so you don't overflow, and so you know exactly how much you will need for a plushie to be "complete" and come out onto the conveyor belt.
This is just a half blob. Just one won't get you anywhere. Two of them will make one plushie.
This gets you one plushie.
This is one plushie + that half.
Two plushies + that half.
Okay because the game would be just too easy without some type of harmful thing, right? Right.
There is someone known as ~The Grundo Thief~ and, as his name implies, he is a grundo that..thieves. Basically he will steal your plushies off the conveyor belt. Get rid of him by clicking him.
*Note* if you are amazing and extra special and are good at timing things, you can drop a blob on his head and he will go away. It doesn't get you any points, but it is kind of funny.
As I said previously, there are 5 different species and 7 different colours. Luckily, neo provided us with a nice little chart illustrating the point system:
*Note* if you are amazing and extra special and are good at timing things, you can hit a plushie with an angel blob. This will get you x4 the amount of points (meaning, take the "primary" number and multiply that by 4). Don't really try too hard because you could end up wasting a lot.
Time Remaining Bonus:
Points for finishing before the clock runs out
Toys on Conveyor Bonus:
Points for having done more than the required number to pass the level. These plushies are on the conveyor belt.
Toys in Queue Bonus:
Points for having done more than the required number to pass the level. These plushies have not yet made it onto the conveyor belt.
This goes on during the level, as well as when the level is completed. The more plushies you get in a row (within that certain time) the more bonus points you can get. Even just one in a row can get you one bonus point, but the more the better!
The Angel Blob! The angel blob is very special. Once she lands into a vat, she will fill it up completely to the top.
The Glowing Blob! He will up your plushies colour. Primary turns to secondary, secondary to rainbow. Rainbow doesn't turn into anything though. :(
The Freeze Blob! He makes the conveyor belt slow down.
The Speed Blob! He speeds the conveyor belt up.
The Soap Blob! He is nice; he will reduce the amount of spillage in your spillage-meter.
The Clock Blobclock! It gives you some extra seconds on the timer.
The Atomic Blob! He is the best, and most rare, blob of them all. You click him, he will fill all 3 of your vats to the top. You don't need to aim at a vat or anything.
The Evil Blob(s)! These blobs are baaaaad. Do not click them. They will really make your spillage go up!
The Drooly Blobs! They are funny, aren't they? :) I wouldn't click them though, they make spillage go up. Even if you get them into the vat, there is still a lot of extra that will cause spillage.
Hints, Tips, & Stuff
Red blobs always come from the right, blue blobs always come from the left, and yellow blobs come from both sides.
Always try to keep the vats completely full.
Only click the grundo when there are plushies on the conveyor belt. As the levels progress, however, you might have to sacrifice a plushie or two but try not to unless it is really necessary; especially try not to sacrifice any rainbow plushies! If you have a high bonus going, do not sacrifice any plushies under any circumstances.
As you're first starting out, try to only go for the slower moving blobs. Some move really fast, and as you get better you will be able to time them better.
If you drop a blob onto a plushie onto a conveyor it will turn the plushie that colour.
If you drop a blob into the wrong coloured vat you will cause your spillage meter to go up.
Try not to clock-watch. It will only drive you insane. Just go as fast as you can and don't stress.
Sometimes a staff member or kad will pop out of a vat. They don't give you points. They don't help you. They don't harm you. Basically they are a waste of pixels so just ignore them.
Be patient, and practise! The only real skill required in this game is mouse click - eye coordination. Learn the speed of the blobs (the sooner the better).
You get the avatar at 1250+ points.

The drooling blob image was given to my via spokket.
All other content was done 100% by me. I spent most of a weekend playing this game for you people (for all the screencaps and stuff). As much as I enjoy the game, that was just too much xD So please don't steal.
