Mootix Drop: A Guide for Beginners
|GAMES ROOM - So... you've read the instructions several times, played for a while,
have the background music stuck in your head, but still cannot master how to land
that adventurous Mootix. If that sentence relates to you, then this guide is for
you! This guide will cover the basics and techniques of the popular game Mootix
Drop. If you are an experienced veteran at this game, you probably will already
know this info, but feel free to refresh your skills here! So grab a comfy chair,
some asparagus for snacking on, a hot cup of dung (free refills, it's happy hour),
and read on.
In Mootix Drop, you play Harry, a Mootix with a mission. Danger is his middle
name (he doesn't have a last name, so it's a good thing). :) Your job is to
successfully parachute onto a petpet target below you. Using the latest Mootix
technology, the target has been digitally superimposed on the petpet below you,
and your goal is to land as close to the center of the target as possible, without
missing, of course. Easy as pie right? Read on. ;)
The controls for Mootix Drop are simple. Tapping the left arrow is left, tapping
the up arrow is up, etc. You can do a barrel roll by quickly tapping the left
or right key twice very quickly. This will come in handy in the harder levels.
:) Let's move on.
Levels of Difficulty
Pretty simple, there are 3 levels of diificulty: Easy, Medium, and Hard. On
each difficulty level, you fall faster towards the ground then the previous
ones, the rings are harder to reach, and sometimes the targets move! Tricky!
Let's move along, shall we?
On Your Way Down
On your way down to the target, there are a number of rings you must fly through
in order to pass the mission. The objectives are posted in the upper left hand
corner of the game screen. On other difficulties, the mission may require you
to land on a certain target, so keep that in mind while going down. Tap the
arrow keys to manuever Harry through each of the rings. Each ring is worth 2
points a piece. If you happen to fly through the exact center of a ring, you
will earn 2 bonus points. Don't worry if you can't get it, it's just a bonus
feature. You won't end up failing a mission because you didn't go through the
exact center of the ring. Practice on flying through the center of the ring
as those two extra points will be essential to your score in the Medium and
Hard levels. Now lets discuss the target landing. (Pass the Asparagus)
Congratulations, you've made it through the required number of rings (hopefully)
:), and all you need to do now is land. Easy! But remeber this: don't get too
excited or get too jumpy. Stay calm. If you get all jumpy, you will tend to
hit keys too fast, miss the target, and end up in the Neo Hospital. Not good.
Then you'll be aching and moaning and yelling nonsense things about Jelly World!
And we all know Jelly World doesn't exist! :) O-kay, let's get serious now.
First of all, I should say there are two targets that you can choose to land
on. One small target and one large target. If you are just starting out, I advise
you to try to land a bullseye on the larger target, then move onto the smaller
one once you have mastered it. The smaller target is easier to miss at the last
second. You will notice little numbers inside each ring of the target. When
you land on a number your score will be multiplied by that number, so go for
the biggest number. The large target has a maximum of X5, while the smaller
target has a maximum of x7. In some missions, there may be multiple small targets.
All are the same, so don't waste precious hang time zooming around to see the
point values for each one. Let's go on.
Landing Harry "Danger"
Position Harry above the target as you gradually come closer. As you come closer
you should see a shadow of Harry, meaning you are extremely close. Try to position
your shadow over the center of the target, so you don't have to tap the keys
frantically in the last two seconds. Make adjustments as you get closer to the
target, (or just cross your fingers and hope for the best if you prefer) :)
Before you know it you will have landed Harry Danger and will be admiring your
audience and signing photos. (Well, maybe not) :)
Depending on the difficulty of play, you will launch Harry through a number
of missions. Easy is 3 missions, Medium is 4 missions, and Hard is 5 missions.
You also get 3 chances to replay a game. Not a mission, the entire game. So
if you blow two missions because you didn't like your score, you only have one
chance left to ace the other 2 missions. Ouch. Save your lives, and do not use
them if you have a bad score. You can always reset the game at the end if you
aren't happy with your score.
This covers all the basics for Mootix Drop. I hope I helped you out and hopefully
now YOU can change YOUR middle name to danger. :) Remember, if at first you
don't succeed try again, and PRACTICE. Practice makes perfect, tell any game
expert that and they will agree with you. And most importantly, don't give up.
If you are going through a couple of bad games, take a break and spin the Wheel
of Monotony or something. Well, maybe not that, but you get the point. :) Good
Authors Note: Well, I really have nothing to say, I thought it would be
mighty cool to have an Authors Note at the bottom of my article, for the whole
world to see! Whee! :)
