The Pocket Neopet was a handheld electronic game produced by Tiger Electronics, with gameplay similar to the Tamagotchi: play with, feed, and care for a Neopet on a daily basis on a device small enough to fit in a pocket. Each Pocket Neopet came with a 3D figure and collectable card of the game's featured Neopet.

Overview[edit]

Each Pocket Neopet featured a single Neopet, along with a world of Neopia.

The Pocket Neopet also came in Deluxe form, featuring an expanded version of the original Pocket Neopet.

Games[edit]

Techo Says

This is basically Simon, or mimicking the pattern shown. The game will start by flashing two arrows, corresponding to the directional pad, which the player must copy; e.g., left, down. If the player is successful, the pattern will repeat but add another arrow to the end of the pattern; e.g., left, down, left. This continues until the player either fails to copy the pattern or successfully copies a pattern of eleven arrows.

NP awards are paid a maximum of three times per day, based on the length of the pattern successfully copied, for a maximum of 100 NP for an eleven-arrow sequence. A cumulative score of 900 points in a level is required to advance to the next level. Completing Level 3 awards a 1st place trophy.

Negg Drop

The player controls a basket to catch falling burlap sacks containing Neggs. At the start of the game, sacks fall at different rates: slow or fast. Catching an empty sack is worth one point. Catching a full (textured) sack is also worth one point but makes all of the sacks fall fast. Avoid the solid black sacks, because that summons the Pant Devil to steal all of your points.

NP awards are paid a maximum of three times per day, based on the number of sacks caught in the time limit, for a maximum of 100 NP for 16 items caught. Level 1 lasts 60 seconds. Level 2 lasts 50 seconds. Level 3 lasts 40 seconds. A cumulative score of 900 points in a level is required to advance to the next level. Completing Level 3 awards a 1st place trophy.

Poogle Race

The player controls a Poogle racing a car to the finish line. The car will move as fast as the player can hit the left and right buttons alternatingly.

NP awards are paid a maximum of three times per day, based on rank, for a maximum of 20 NP for finishing in 1st place. A cumulative score of 180 points in a level is required to advance to the next level. Completing Level 3 awards a 1st place trophy.

Scorchy Slots

This is a simple slot game to earn NP when the other three games have stopped awarding NP. There is no trophy awarded for playing.

All three icons awards nothing.

Matching two squares awards 10 NP. Matching three awards 30 NP.

Matching two circles awards 15 NP. Matching three awards 40 NP.

Matching two dots (four small squares arranged 2x2) awards 20 NP. Matching three awards 80 NP.

Winning a 1st place trophy in each of the three daily games unlocked a virtual prize code that could be redeemed at the Grundo Warehouse for a Pocket Neopet virtual item matching the Pocket Neopet that generated the code. At current, these codes are no longer redeemable on the site due to support for the codes being removed for obsolescence.

Trivia[edit]
