Neopets - Attack of the Revenge



Hey! My name is _Xweeks_, and my owner is _fimbulwolf_. One of my favorite games to play is Attack of the Revenge. Be quick on your fingers and know the game well, and you can earn yourself 3k in a few minutes and have fun at the same time! However, some of you may not be familiar with this game, so I thought to myself: why not write a guide? So, for all you noobs (not talking about you, guest), here's my guide!


WARNING! While reading through this guide, you may experience nausea because of bad jokes and poor puns. Feel free to vent your annoyance by screaming in frustration.


So, to start this off, if you don't know what this is all about, check out the story here. Satisfied now? No? Here's the instructions:

Note: These are all the exact pirate quotes. Enjoy! "Aye, Garin needs yer help in keepin' Captain Scarblade an' his scurvy swashbucklers off the Black Pawkeet!

Use the arrow keys to move Garin either back and forth or left and right, an' the space bar to be pickin' up cannonballs, which can be used to load the cannon or send the pirate villains overboard!

Load the cannons before Jacques can ignite the fuse, or use the water bucket to be puttin' out a fire!"

Well, that's all, good luck! Not! Gotcha! (even though I probably didn't). Anyways, ignoring my bad sense of humor, those instructions weren't very clear, right? Well, they tell you some more things throughout the game. Like so:

Level one (25 points needed to progress): "'What am I to do?' Ye might be askin'.

Use the arrow keys to move Garin either back and forth or left and right.

To be usin' yer sword against the pirates, press space when standin' close to one of those scallywags!"

PIRATE TRANSLATOR: For first level all you have to do is swing yer (sorry) swing your sword. But please, do where you can actually hit them, otherwise they say, "Avast! What are ye tryin' to do?" The positions you can stand in are far left, left, right and far right in both the front and back. Starting with the front far left and ending with the back far right, I'm going to label these positions 1-8. So, they will look like this:


Moving on! The places where you can hit them are only in the front, or 5-8. They appear in all these places. If you hit them with your sword (all of them only take one swing, sadly) they will be "sinkin' like a stone", "payin' a visit to Davy Jone's locker", or "sleepin' with the fishes". Even though they all take one hit, they have different amounts of points to fork over, as shown below:
Scoring for two points is Fred! He's the Tuskaninny. There is nothing really special about him. I mean, c'mon, he's just a Tuskaninny... (great, now I'm going to get hate mail from everyone who has a cool Tuskaninny. Okay guest, I didn't mean YOUR Tuskaninny, I meant everyone else's, alright?)
Again for two points is Nathan! Hooray! He's a Blumaroo! And... uhh... hooray!
Alright, now start bringing in the bad boys. For THREE POINTS is Benny the Blade! Ooh, doesn't he just sound ferocious? He's the Bruce and (yes, I actually have something else to say!) he's Captain Scarblade's pal (and for those of you he didn't take my advice and read the story and are going "Hey, you didn't talk about him yet!!!" he's the nasty looking lupe on the header with a scar, blade, and captain's hat. DUH!)
Up next for another three points is Swabby! He's the Krawk, and you may have seen him around. Fell him with a claymore or whatever's on hand the next time you run into that bilge rat! (A message to newbies, yes, I'm being nice and calling you newbies. Now, I don't want to be disturbed with your neomails saying "How do I do that?" Okay, you may be smarter then a lot of the people I've met, but IT WAS A JOKE!!! Sheesh).
Duhn duhn duhn... for five delightful little points (or big points, whatever) is Captain Scarblade! (Wasn't it nice you waited so patiently?) Anyway, he's the meanest (feel the wrath of his purple socks!), the greenest (sort of. He has some competition with Nathan) and the highest point-giving guy your ever going to lay a blade on. NOT!!!
THE PHANTOM ORANGE SHIRT GUY!!! He's not green, but he has two swords and he gives you twice as many points as Scarblade (Let's do this together: 5x2=10!) The funny thing is, the day I was thinking about writing this, he showed up. Luckily I had a cannon ball on hand to knock him out and get me a nice sum of twenty... (DON'T PANIC! It's ALRIGHT! Take a BREATHER or SOMETHING! Inhale... exhale... repeat. Once more. There. We better now? It's just the next lesson... that's all. We can't get too ahead of ourselves, y'know...)

*Note: You curious about this guy? Haven't seen him yet? Wonder no longer! Just look down!



















































A little more...

















































Almost there...

















































Yay! Winner!

Also, if you click on Benny the Blade's (remember: the Bruce) left eye, or the eye that the little hand appears over (for a standard cursor) the Phantom Orange Shirt Guy will appear right in front of Scarblade, with a menacing laugh. And yes, he always has that huge grin. Don't really understand what I am saying? Here is a screenie:

See the circle around the Bruce's left eye? (ok, maybe it's a monocle, I got bored, alright?) You may THINK the all the baddies are on the title screen, but there is one more to slice! Here is what happens when you click the eye:

See! I wasn't just pulling your leg! He DOES appear! After he laughs:

He vanishes... as if he had never even been there...

Think you may have seen the Phantom Orange Shirt Guy around? Yup, he's in secrets in other games too. For example... nah, I'm keeping it a secret from the public unless either want to search through hundreds of guides or neomail me, either of them wasting your time if you really care. MUAHAHAHA!... (or just go to the game codes page...)

Alright, let's get moving. Finally. Level two (75 points needed to progress): "Avast!

Cannon balls an' a bucket filled with water?

Press space to be pickin' up a cannon ball or the water bucket when yer standin' next to 'em."

PIRATE TRANSLATOR: Hmm... cannon balls? Where did I hear that before? Anyways, stand in space 1 (you didn't forget those already, did you?) where the cannon balls are, and hit the space bar to pick one up. Or, go to space 4 and hit space to grab the bucket of water. Here's a screenie:

So what are these for? Well, currently they are for knocking out the baddies! Hitting a pirate with a cannon ball or the bucket of water does the same thing as your sword, except give you double points. Remember how I said I got 20 on the Phantom Orange Shirt Guy?... Anyways, hit them with a cannon ball and they'll be, "right scuppered now", or "taking a caulk", or "losing their chance to cut an' run". Or, with water, they'll be "taking a complimentary bath", or "appearing to be takin' in water", or "takin' a proper soakin'". And don't waste one in the infinite pile, or they'll say, "Sink me, Swab! Ye just wasted a perfectly gleemful cannon ball", or "Arr! Shark bait! Ye just wasted a nice bucket o' water". Another thing to remember: You can only hold one of these at a time. And you can't swing your sword unless you get rid of what you are holding, but you can't drop it just by hitting space. You need to either chuck it overboard, hit a pirate, OR use them for their other purposes. "What are those?" You may ask. Well, I'd say, proceed to the next level!

Level three (150 points needed to progress): "Yarrr...
It's about time to be bringin' in the big guns!

Move close to a cannon an' press space to load it! (You'll be needin' to pick up a cannon ball first, though!)

To put out a burnin' cannon, you'll have to pick up the water bucket an' move close to the burnin' cannon before pressing space!"

PIRATE TRANSLATOR: Ok, you see what these are for now? Now you have three cannons to deal with. Yes, yes, here's your screenie:

And here's some other news! Jacques awakens from his nap and it takes him a minute, but he realizes the ship is under attack... sigh... (I don't know what happened to everyone else, though). Anyways, you use the bucket of water to load the cannon and the cannonball to put it out if it's on fire. Who's with me? Uh... never mind. (I told you I had a bad sense of humor). So you need to constantly keep the cannons loaded because the heroic Jacques will somehow lower himself on a rope while holding a torch and staying in the exact same position. I took a screenie of that "possible" feat:

Anyways, he randomly guesses because he's just that smart. And yes, he can do the same one twice in a row. So keep them loaded! But, when the level ends, they magically get unloaded. When they are loaded, Jacques will ignite the fuse and it'll fire, scoring you 12 points. But if Jacques-the-Genius lights it on fire, well, you get the purpose of the bucket. You don't lose points or anything, you can never lose points. But if it burns up you will lose a life. Putting it out will only give you five points, so try to load them. And trust me, don't think you can just blow up all your cannons and then only have to worry about the pirates. Nope. The cannons magically get unloaded if they are loaded AND the dead cannons return from the grave once you finish a level. Cool, eh? Anyways, you need to stand to the right of the cannon in the back to load it or to drench it, so in spots 2-4. And Garin, being the amazing Usul that he is, still can't teleport through cannons (he's working on it though). In other words, if you moved forward to take care of a pirate in the front and want to go left or right, you'll actually have to BACK UP, and then move. Not too much work, I hope... but if you are SO BAD AT THIS GAME and you LET A CANNON DIE (heehee, I'm just teasing you...) then you can run through it somehow.

Ok, done with that. Level four (300 points needed to progress)

Yeah, they don't say anything. We are almost through here (sniff, sob). However, if you were just playing for neopoints, this is about the stopping point. Score at least 323 points and you will receive the maximum amount of neopoints (if you send it, but I really hope I don't have to tell you that). But for those playing for a high score, the pirates just keep getting quicker. Everything does, hopefully including your fingers. This game is NOT for people who have slow fingers. After experimenting, I have discovered you CAN hold the left/right arrow keys down and he will move more then one space, but the problems are he moves really fast and you can't really stop him where you want him to AND it takes a second for him to realize he's supposed to move. So just quickly tap it. I mean, boohoo, there's four whole spaces to cross. Also, holding space does make him swing his sword over and over quite fast, but you can't move while doing this, so it's basically a waste of time... Anyways, here are some more levels/points:

Level five (500 points needed to progress): Keep going!

Level six (750 points needed to progress): Your doing great!

Level seven (1000 points needed to progress): Here's where I stop trying to hit all the pirates with a cannonball or bucket of water, or sometimes even level six. They start coming practically in threes, and the time they just stand there going, "ERRRRRRG!" is greatly reduced. So slice them with your sword, it's okay, you don't have a time limit to get the amount of points required.

Level eight (1500 points needed to progress): AHHH! They come in fours and hardly waste any time! Slice and dice and sprint around the deck! Don't panic if you lose a life, you'll just get distracted and lose more. So be quick on your feet and go, go, go!

Yes, there are more levels, but as long as you beat level seven, your golden if you are just playing for neopoints. But, if you really want to know, level nine is 2000 points. Get to level ten and you will be on the high scores. Anyways, before I set sail, some secrets and tips!

  1. Fine, fine, secret first. If you type blackpawkeet when you are at level three or above you will earn yourself and extra life! Like any other secret similar this one you can only use it once. If you are not fast at typing, I suggest you type it when the game is "paused", in other words, on the screen before level three, or on the help menu on level three if you choose to show it.


  2. A tip is to load the cannons right before all the bad guys come, starting with the right. Also, if there are cannons unloaded and you are on level seven for example, maybe six and above, take care of any pirates that might be there first because you can wait a little to put out a burning cannon but you can't restore lost lives or get any more (or can you... hint, hint... wink, wink...)


  3. This isn't really a tip, but if you end the level while holding a cannon ball or bucket of water (so it has to be level three or above because that's only possible if Jacques fires the cannon and the level ends) then you start the next level holding it. Heehee... and the stock replenishes so you can be holding the "only bucket of water" and they'll be another one there. It's just a little time saver. However, it only does something if you are holding a cannon ball because, think about it, what are you going to do with the water? I had just wanted to find out if the same rules applied and all. On another note, I learned that you shouldn't TRY to do this. What I mean is if I need 12 points or less and Jacques is coming down to fire the cannon (hopefully loaded) and I have a cannon ball I go stand by the last cannon to prepare (because Garin always starts in the same place he was standing when he won the level). If a pirate comes and he's only been there for a second I don't bother with him because all pirates magically disappear if you win the level. But if you really try you most likely will end up losing a life, and unless that's your goal, don't try that hard...


  4. I don't recommend picking up the bucket of water unless a cannon is on fire or there is a pirate in spots 7 or 8 and you want to hit him with a bucket of water (probably better if you do it before they start coming really fast). I usually try to keep a cannon ball on hand but if there are baddies I get them first.


  5. As annoying as this sounds, TRY to remember what order the pirates appeared in. Once you are on to the higher levels and they are respawning as fast as you can knock them down remembering the correct order will be very important. Each pirate only stays there for so long, and you need to slice the ones that appeared first in order to have them not board your ship.


  6. For optimal playing conditions, you may want to turn the sound off, as well as setting the quality to low and reducing the screen size. Quality is not that important; you need to make sure your game does not lag. A slight lag spike can cause you to lose. One second you'll be doing great, and the next second 6 million pirates will have boarded your ship. So, if you get my drift, you need to have as little lag as possible.


---The Coming of a "Games Master" and His Sister---

Ok, I will admit it. AAA may be beyond weirdness, and Abigail is... like... Abigail... they helped me out. Oh yeah, and TNT for thinking of making these challenges in the first place. I am talking about nothing other than Daily Dare and the Games Master Challenge! At first, I did not get many hits to this page. Yes, I admitted it. I mean, Attack of the Revenge was never the Featured Game and there is no avatar you can obtain from this game so a lot of people probably did not care about Attack of the Revenge. But then AAA returns with his sister, and suddenly everyone is like, "Attack of the Revenge?... OMG!!! I DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY THAT @#%&! GAME!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!"... so maybe I exaggerate. Nonetheless, my page suddenly was flooded by people coming to it *victory dance*. Echem... so anyways, thanks to everyone who took the time to check out my guide. It was really awesome to see that my page could get 2250 hits in a total of 4 days! I mean, really, what is the purpose of a guide if anyone hardly spares a glance at it?...
---Comments---

Yeah, you read it right. I HAVE in fact received comments for my guide. So I thought, "Why not post them here so people can see what other people thought about my guide?" That way, if other people didn't like my guide, you wouldn't have to read through it! Which is why I put the comments at the very end... *cough*. Anyways, here are the comments:










If you have questions about other games, you can ask me; I'm a pretty good gamer in my opinion. Step aside, AAA! Anyways, thanks so much you guys! And please, to you people reading this, I really would like to hear what you have to think about it. It is only proper that after reading such a FANTASTIC guide you LAVISH the PRAISE on me that I THOUROUGHLY DESERVE (arr... modesty is not considered a virtue among us pirates...) Haha... just kidding... whatever thoughts you have, good or bad, lay 'em on me please by means of a good neomail.

Yup, that's about all I got, so click here and get yer game on ye scurvy scallywag! Or, if ye think me guide ain't perfected enough, neomail me an' fill me in on all yer suggestions an' complaints.

---A FINAL NOTE TO READERS---

This took me a very long time to complete (it was annoying copying all those quotes and taking those screenies!) So please, please, PLEASE do not copy any of this and call it yours. Besides, could you live with the guilt? I hope you don't go and try to find out. Besides guilt, I edited all those pictures... I took a long time perfecting them... they are all MINE... and I can prove it too! You, however, cannot. Watch out, thieves! (not that I thought you were one, guest. But bear what I just went over in mind!) Also, don't forget to link to me if you really like this guide (which I hope you do!)

If you don't want to use a text link then you can use either of the WICKED SICK buttons I made (I now provide a smaller, 50 by 200 button).

See ya on da 'igh seas, matey!
