Games Master Challenge

What is the Games Master Challenge?
Every year in November a Blumaroo named Aristotle A. Avinroo (better known as Aaa) gives out game challenges to Neopians. The first time he has done so was in November 2006. On this page you can see all challenges, prizes and qualifying games. You will also see some tips on how to play the challenges and beat them. Click here to go to Games Master Challenge.

If you want to practice, SunnyNeo's Games Room lists all GMC and Daily Dare scores from previous years. This will give you an idea of which score you'll need to get to beat AAA.

[ 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 | 2018 ]

The 2009 Games Master Challenge is now over! Challenges can no longer be completed. Trophies have been given out based on how many challenges you completed.

The 2009 Games Master Challenge also included a NeoCash Challenge. More information can be found in our NC Challenge Guide.

2009 GMC Trophy Glitch:
If you revisit the GMC page now, your "challenges completed" will be downgraded by up to 3 challenges. This can cause the trophy on your lookup to become downgraded. Do NOT visit the GMC page if you don't want your score to be downgraded. If your trophy has been downgraded because of visiting the page, send a bug report to TNT by using one of the automated forms at the Contact Us page:

Duping Glitch: (Resolved)
Some people were getting multiple prizes from each GMC challenge. This problem has been fixed and multiples of prizes are no longer being given out. TNT has given official word on this glitch. If you received duplicated NP items, simply delete the duplicates. If you have received duplicated NC items, send a bug report, and TNT should delete them for you. Many people are reporting that their extra items have already been deleted.

2008 GMC Trophy glitch: (Resolved)
After completing a challenge for this year's GMC, your trophy from last year's GMC (if you have one) disappears. This glitch has now been fixed. All 2008 GMC trophies have been returned, and the new trophies for this year's GMC have been given out.

What were the challenges?

The 2009 Games Master Challenge also included a NeoCash Challenge. More information can be found in our 2009 NC Challenge Guide.

3 Times
It seems there simply weren't enough doughnutfruits in Mystery Island to keep Woogy and Jimmi happy, so they packed up their seesaw and hit the road. Tally a total of greater than 850 in the Meridellian version of this popular game.

Submit a score of 850+ on Super Hasee Bounce.

  • Instead of trying to aim, focus on where your Hasee is landing, so as not to lose any lives.
  • Hard mode is much harder and doesn't award any extra points, so just stick to regular mode.
Glitch: Even though this is labeled as a "3 Times" challenge, you only have to submit ONE score of 850 or above in order to complete the challenge and receive the prize. It is unknown whether this is a glitch, or just a typo by TNT.

Gather enough spinning spheres in the Neopian night sky to turn in this score or more in this pirouetting puzzle game.

Submit a score of 3600+ on Spinacles.

  • The easiest way to get this score is to grind the lower levels. That means you just stay around on the lower levels and purposefully don't finish them. Just keep shooting the Spinacles and racking up points. The best levels to grind on are probably levels 2, 3 and 4.
  • If you get an item such as a bomb or a perimeter, and you don't want to use it because it would clear all the Spinacles and end your level, then just shoot it horizontally and it will eventually disappear.
Glitch: If you beat this challenge on the day it came out, the challenge would appear as completed on your GMC progress page, and a picture of the item would be visible, but the item would not appear in your inventory. Some people received the item by going to the GMC page again at a later date. This no longer works. If you completed the challenge but still have not received your Spinacle Though Bubble, send a bug report to TNT by going to the "contact us" link found at the bottom of every page.

It'll take a steady hand to keep Captain Arf from losing both his crew and his lunch in this rollicking Krawk Island game. Conquer the seas with a score of 400 or more.

Submit a score of 400 or higher on Barf Boat.

  • Unless you just bought a new computer last week, this game probably will not run properly for you. You'll have to wait a few minutes at the loading screen, and once the game finally starts, it will often lag, causing you to die instantly. In order to beat this challenge, go out and purchase a new computer right now. Failing that, try playing on low quality and the smallest size. If you somehow get this game to work, try to focus on just one petpet.
  • The easiest petpet to focus on is whichever one is closest to the middle of the boat. Don't worry so much about the other petpets, especially the ones near the edge- if you try to save them, you'll end up losing all your petpets, and then it's game over.
  • Avoid the cannonballs by jumping over them.
  • The coins that pop out give a bonus of 30 points, but chasing after them is a bad idea that will probably get you killed.

Submit a score of 300 or higher on Stowaway Sting.

Submit a score of 175 or higher on MAGAX: Destroyer II.

  • The game code xagam restores your health to full. One user per game.

  • The vampire Cybunnies take several shots, so you'll probably have to shoot them a couple times, turn around and fly away, then turn back around and shoot again.
  • The skulls give extra health, so pick them up if you need to.
  • If you get hit by Hubrid Nox's fireball, you won't be able to shoot for a while, so turn around and fly in the other direction until the effect wears off.
  • You can complete this challenge by finishing level one.

Shenkuu's searching for a new batch of top scholars, but first you have to prove that you're up to the test. Sending three scores of 700 or greater should do the trick!

Submit a score of 700+ on Imperial Exam three times.

  • All difficulty modes give the same score, so you might as well play on the easiest one.
  • Take time to read the words carefully.
  • The Neopets will misspell the same words the same way each time, so you can memorize how each word is usually misspelled and recognize errors more easily.

Oh, sure... the Petpet Protection League might not be happy about it, but they're not the ones who have to live under a curse now, are they? Keep that Terror Mountain cave dweller fed and the jinx at bay while getting a score of 50 or more.

Submit a score of 50+ on Snowbeast Snackrifice.

  • You can attain this score before level 2 is over.
  • Make sure to charge up your shot before hitting the petpets, or they won't go far.
  • If you charge your power fully, then hit a petpet into the cave, a light will light up. Get three lights, and for a short time you go into a mode where you can hit many petpets into the cave easily, as you no longer have to charge your shot during this time.

Challenge Type Prize
With the aid of his trusty Lightmite, this Petpet needs to escape a mine that's been closed off by a rockslide (picking up a few precious gems along the way). Gather a brilliant score of 800 or more to complete this phase of the challenge.

Submit a score of 800 or higher on Gwyl's Great Escape.

  • At the start of the game, choose to Continue Game, do not select New Game. Then type in the code gwylsgreatestescapeever, which will bring you to a bonus level with lots of gems. After you finish the bonus level, you'll go to the regular first level and continue the game as usual.
  • If you're quick, you can get a time bonus at the end, but don't rush too much and lose all your health.
  • If you land slightly to the right of center on the statue at the end, your time bonus can be doubled or even tripled.
  • On level 3 (catacombs 3), as well as level 7 (lava caves 3), you'll start out right by the statue, have to go through the level collecting all the gems, then go all the way back to the statue. In either of these levels, if you still have 2 lives, you can die after collecting the last gem. Then you'll start right next to the statue, with all your gems, so you can land on the statue immediately for a big time bonus.
Glitch: it is possible that you get a glitch where you collected all the gems and the statue is lit up but you cannot complete the level. If this happens, fly back to the place where you collected the last gem and try again. Mostly this works.

Submit a score of 700 or higher on Ready to Roll.

Tip for Crisis Courier:
  • The game code kingaltador gives you an extra life.
Tips for Ready to Roll:
  • Gather the sun tokens for extra points. For every 10 sun tokens you collect, you'll gain an extra life.
  • Your main objective should be finishing the levels, as you get 150 points for each level you finish.
  • On stage 2-2, try to rotate the board steadily at a medium speed in order to sort of float in the air, right between the spiked walls and the rotating spike ball.
  • After finishing level 2-2, you should have enough points.
Glitch: People are reporting receiving the prize by sending scores of less than 700 on Ready to Roll. It is unknown what the actual score needed is. It is also unknown whether this is a glitch, or if it was a simple typo by TNT.

Submit a score of 250+ on Kou-Jong three times.

  • You can attain this score by finishing the first two levels on medium difficulty. You can't get the score on easy difficulty, even if you finish all 3 levels.
Glitch: As of now there is a glitch that causes the prize image that comes up on your GMC progress page to be different from the prize you actually receive. The image is of a Captain Scarblade Action Figure, but the actual prize you will receive is the Blue Daisy Bracelet. Some people report to have received the Captain Scarblade Action Figure, while others are still receiving the Blue Daisy Bracelet.

Neopia's moon was discovered during the month of Hunting in Y6. Can you complete this out-of-this-world challenge?
  • Rearrange the rocks till you've cracked enough codes to get 500 points or more.
  • Help the Grundo astronaut avoid obstacles while flying in circles to reach a score of 75 or higher.
Submit a score of 500+ on Time Tunnel.
Submit a score of 75+ on Lost in Space Fungus.

Tips for Time Tunnel:
  • A green light means you have the correct color placed in the correct slot. An orange light means you have the correct color but it is in the wrong slot. The placing of the orange light does NOT correspond to which stone is in the wrong spot- it simply tells you that one of the stones (it could be any of them) is the right color but in the wrong place.
  • So how do you figure out the correct code? Here's an example:
    • First, submit a code with 4 white stones. If the result contains any green lights, then you know that there are white stones in the correct code. For example, if you see two green lights, that means there are two white stones in the correct code.
    • Then, on your second try you would leave 2 white stones in the code you submit. You need to figure out what the other colors in the puzzle are, so make the other two stones another color. For example, you could add two black stones, and then look at the result to see if there are more than two total lights lit of either color.
    • If you now have 3 total lights lit, that means there's one black stone in the puzzle. If you still only have two lights lit, that means there are no black stones in the puzzle, so replace the black stones with blue ones.
    • Keep doing this until you have all 4 lights lit in either green or orange. When all of your lights are green or orange, you know which colors are in the correct code. Then all you have to do is place them in the correct order. It would be easiest to try rearraging the order while you are trying to find out which colors are in the code; then you will need to use less moves.
  • If you collect all the bonus items in level one, you will have enough points after this level. It would be easiest to keep restarting level one until you've managed to complete the level while picking up some bonus items. If you do not get the bonus items, you will need to complete the first two levels for the required score.
Tips for Lost in Space Fungus:
  • If you collect all the bonus items in level one, you will have enough points after this level. It would be easiest to keep restarting level one until you've managed to complete the level while picking up some bonus items.
  • If you do not get the bonus items, you will need to complete the first two levels for the required score.

Two Y6 games included the pairing of a Cybunny on vacation and a Grundo revolutionary.
  • Help this duo dodge a fleet of Virtupets Fighters and achieve a score of at least 400.
  • Next, get at least 800 points while helping this pair gather the parts of their ship so they can leave Kreludor.
Submit a score of 400 or higher on Escape to Kreludor.
Submit a score of 800 or higher on Moon Rock Rampage.

Tips for Escape to Kreludor:
  • The game code empulse destroys ships within a block radius of your ship. One use per game.
  • Make sure to pick up the purple gems, as they are worth 50 points.
  • Also get the white gems, as they give an extra life.
  • The grey ships will crash into each other or when run into a debris, blowing themselves up. Try to lead them around until they crash into each other or a pile of debris.
  • The red ships will avoid crashing, so you have to get the red ship next to you and shoot it.
  • The white comet cannot be destroyed.
  • If you find yourself in a tough spot, head for one of the portals in the corners. It will transport you to a random spot on the board.
Tips for Moon Rock Rampage:
  • The game code rampage gives an extra life. One use per game.
  • The game code superlaser gives you a better laser for that round. One use per game.
  • The game code novisitors gives extra time. One use per game.
  • Shooting the enemies turns them into blocks. You can use these blocks to get across pits. You can also throw these blocks at other enemies to kill them. Shooting an enemy won't give you any points, but killing one with a block will give you points. The more enemies you kill with one block, the higher your bonus points will be. The first enemy killed is worth 1 point, the next 5 points, the next 10 points, and the next 25 points.
  • Use the code to gain extra time and just stay in a level killing enemies until your time is about to run out, then quickly collect the last item and move on.
  • On level 10, picking up the propellor is worth 250 points. If you have any extra lives by level 10, get the propellor, then wait for time to run out. You'll restart the level and can pick up the propellor again. If an enemy kills you, the propeller will not show up again, so you must wait for time to run out if you want to collect the propellor multiple times.

In Y6, a magnificent invention known as the Juice-O-Matic made its debut, delivering tasty Juppie Juice to grateful Meepits throughout Neopia. Get a score of 2700 or greater while giving the Meepits their juice, or face the possibility of getting your face bitten...

Submit a score of 2700+ on Meepit Juice Break.

  • The game code meepits gives you an extra life. One use per game.
  • The game code juice-o-matic restores time meters to full. One use per game.
  • You get more points when the juice is the same color as the Meepit.
  • Meepits have a weird sense of colours. To get pink Juppie juice for the pink Meepit, combine all the three colours (red, blue and yellow).
  • To to put pipes with a fruit in your connection. The red fruit will give you 10 points, the blue one 25.
  • Rotten apples will take of 10 points of your score. Try to avoid those.
  • At the end of a level, when you've only have one Meepit left to feed, connect the pipes of both two Meepits, so you'll be feeding two instead of one. This will give you extra points.
  • On the lower levels, take your time to connect as many pipes as possible, this will give you more points
  • Connecting all pipes at once will give you bonus points. This can be done the easiest on the first level.

  • On level 1 you should be able to get a hole in one, which will give you about 100 points. If you don't get a hole in one, keep restarting until you get it.

  • You don't have to hold down the right arrow key, just hit it once to get up to speed. You'll need to hit it again if you get slowed down by an obstacle.
  • You can jump while ducking, so just hold down the down arrow key constantly- that way you won't hit any of the high obstacles (even if you jump right under them).
  • Hitting the up arrow twice in a row makes you do a trick and gives you points. So just go through the game holding the down arrow and tapping the up arrow over and over. This should cause you to avoid most obstacles and do many tricks. With this method you can score over 2500 by the end of the first level.

This snot-soaked menace began leaving behind a trail of destruction (among other things) all the way back in Y4. Salute this slimy scoundrel with a score of 12,000 in his game, which followed a few years later.

Submit a score of 1,200 or higher on Snot Splatter. (This seems to be a typo by TNT, the required score is actually 1,200, not the 12,000 that shows on the challenge screen.)

  • Click on a full bubble that is next to other full bubbles to start a chain reaction.
  • You can also start a chain reaction by using the 2x powerup on an almost-full bubble that is next to full bubbles.

  • Gather berries while rolling past obstacles on your way to a score of 125 or higher.

Submit a score of 125 or higher on Turmac Roll.
Sumbit a score of 200 or higher on Wicked Wocky Wobble.

Tips for Turmac Roll:
  • Always play on hard mode. This is only slightly more difficult then easy and medium, but will give you three times as much points as playing on easy mode.
  • Keep an eye out for the following berries, since they give lots of points:
    • Fishberry (blue and fish shaped): 75 points on hard mode
    • Jumbleberry (pink): 150 points on hard mode
    • Juicy berry (orange): 225 points on hard mode
    • Unguberry (red and small): 300 points on hard mode
    • Aquaberry (Bleu and shaped like a droplet): 600 points on hard mode
  • When you're on a hill and there's a tree right behind the hill, use to up key to jump at the top of the hill to get safely over the tree.
Tips Wicked Wocky Wobble:
  • Use the game code wocky when you're holding 3 or more items. This will cause a Buzzer to appear and drop a ball. When you catch the ball, your items will freeze for a few seconds and there will be no danger of dropping them during that time. Type "wock" at the start of the game, before you're holding any items. Then you can just type in the "y" once once you have 3 or more items, causing the Buzzer to appear. The Buzzer usually appears near the middle of the screen, so try to be standing there when you use the code.
  • There is no penalty for letting items fall on the ground, so don't bother to catch the items that aren't worth many points, such as the Twirly Fruits (they look like green shells) and the Oranella (they look like orange plants.)
  • Once you've got two items in your stack, plushies (which are worth more points) will start falling, so try to catch them and ignore the lower scoring items. The items worth the most points are the Evil Coconut and the Harffel Fruit (which looks like an orange and purple oval.) The sunblock, the golden book, and the Illusen doll in the glass capsule are also worth a lot of points.
  • Sometimes a Warf or a Drackonack will come to block your way. When you see it coming, move towards it if you can; this will give you more room on the screen to move around, because it will stop when you get close to it.

Once you have the fireball, don't pick up the other colored powerups or you will lose your fireball. Once you get your fireball to level 4, you can't upgrade your weapon any more, but you can continue to pick up the red powerups for extra points. If you don't get the fireball weapon early in the game, it's best just to restart.
  • You will lose a life if you touch the Grarrl, the Pterodactyls, or the walls on the sides of the screen. The Grarrl comes up from the bottom of the screen, and the Pterodactyls come from the top, so try to stay around the middle of the screen. The huts are just part of the background; you don't have to avoid them.
  • The white Pterodactyls that fly across the screen won't hurt you.
  • Once you get a higher level weapon, you can sway back and forth across the screen in order to shoot more enemies.
  • Every few levels, you will regain a life.
  • Don't worry about trying to kill every single enemy; more Pterodactyls will always come, so you're not missing an opportunity if you don't shoot them all.

Paper Pteri Toy
Everyone will be pulling for you as you attempt to take down enough challengers to amass this unknown score in this game set in the Lost Desert, which happens to have been discovered in Y3.

Submit a score of 100+ on Tug 'O' War.

  • When Super Pull Mode is about to be activated, start constantly smashing all 4 keys at the same time. If you do this, you'll enter the commands faster than your opponent every time and get several Super Pulls in a row.
  • If your Rage Bar gets full, press the W key (or up arrow, if you've chosen the secondary control scheme) to daze your opponent.

  • Your score won't show up until after you've sent your score. You must pass round 2 in order to score over 100.
  • There is a time limit, but you can't see how much time you have left. If your game abruptly ends even though you clicked the right Neopet, it's because your time ran out.
  • You can try to write down the order of the Neopets on a piece of paper to help you remember, but the invisible time limit makes this difficult.

Additional Challenge Help
For each challenge there are certain requirements that you must meet to beat the challenge, as you can see in the table further up the page. Although five challenges are given out daily, you may complete them at any time before the challenge's deadline, which this year is December 1. For each challenge you complete you are eligible to receive a prize. This year you do not need to click on the present image to claim your prize. Your "View Progress" page will show the image of the prize once it has been awarded.

Important: Your prizes are not awarded until you view the Games Master Challenge page. After that the prizes will appear in your inventory.

The challenges revolve around a group of selected qualifying games. Each year the list of games changes and is expanded. The odd number of games is due to the addition of several sponsor games. For some challenges, people from the USA will play a sponsor game whereas non-USA people will have a different, non-sponsor game.

This year there are eight types of challenges.
