Shenkuu River Rush
This game requires the 3D Life Player plugin!
While Mystery Island would seem like the obvious choice for surfing in Neopia,
surfers in the know will tell you that waves don't get much bigger than those at the waterfalls of Shenkuu!
It's time for Shenkuu's surfing crowd to show their wave-riding skills to the rest of Neopia,
and there's no better way for them to do it than to take on the terrifying ramps and rapids of their land's highest waterfalls.
Play as either Cassile or Bowe and ride the roaring rapids of Shenkuu on your riverboard.
Don't forget to wow the crowd (and earn points!) by doing some amazing tricks.
Just make sure your feet are back on your board before you hit the water... otherwise, you'll be sunk!
Keep an eye out for powerups that can help you really show off.
Carefully dodge the obstacles that lie in your path, or else you'll lose a life!
The following are images of the instructions
For the above image : the special tricks are :
LRDL = left right down left
ULDU = up left down up
In the image above is shown the different orbs you can collect during the game.
For the above image : the items are slowly being released :
Pack of Holding, Bracers of Fury,
Helm of Recovery, Boots of Leaping,
Speed Beads, Winged Talisman
the Talisman was removed from the NCMall
Items are being bought at Wonderous Weaponry in Shenkuu
I have 4 of the items and am testing them to add info to the guide :
The pack adds a few points to your score when you cross a new level threshold
I got 3 points for crossing a new level even when I had one life.
The boots increase your jump/air time.
The bracers create a softer landing on your tricks/jumps
but you still have to be on your board to land or you will still lose a life.
But with them you no longer die when doing a trick, pulling it and landing hard as long as you are on your board before the water.
Personally, so far my favorite items are the boots.
Also the boots paired with the bracers.
Scoring for this is game is basic.
You get points for the faster you complete it.
For each orb you get one point.
For the tricks :
DD = down down = Tomamu Tail Flare = 1 point
RL = right left = Whirling Kazeriu = 1 point
RDL = right down left = Juma Spin = 4 points
UDD = up down down = Sandan Somersault = 4 points
LRDL = left right down left = Pygui Roll = 8 points
ULDU = up left down up = Quilin Eclipse = 8 points
Shift = Hold left shift while you are completing a trick
Spacebar = press this to jump
When starting the game, you see the image below.
When the above items are available they will show up in the proper spot of the game screen.
During game play, there are a few obstacles you must avoid or jump.
In the image below there are two obstacles shown. Rocks and logs.
There are also some ramps along the game to increase your jumping.
Some jumps are in the middle of the river.
Other jumps are at the top of waterfalls as in the image below.
There is point in the game where you can access a Secret River.
While playing, when you see the below image in your game,
you know you are about at the spot to find it.
As soon as you go under the structure you see, there is a waterfall.
This waterfall is where you see and access the secret river path.
As you take off from the waterfall, you will see the following image.
The river running left to right under the main river is the secret river path.
Start turning right or left immediately off the waterfall to make this path. The path is rather long, fast and fun and has some large obstacles in the way.
Prepare for lots of jumping or taking your time to manuever the obstacles.
You will know you found the secret river when you see the words Secret Path as in the image below.
The secret river path eventually flows back into the main river.
The end of the game, literally says "Finish" as below.
There are 6 levels to complete.
Each level gets a little bit harder by adding more obstacles to avoid.
After you finish the game it tallies your points for your score.
You do get points added for finishing in a good time.
You will get points taken away for taking too long to finish.
During the game you also come across the Wise Old Gnorbu, seen below.
He doesn't do anything to affect your game, he is just cheering.
