Guide for Neopets
Online only/Web
By nemesis2 (e-mail:nemmysmailbox@yahoo.com.au)

I am no longer a neopets player.I have quit neopets.The only reason
I may sometimes go on there is to check something for this guide.
As of December 1st 2004,I am no longer obliged to answer any e-mails about
neopets.In other words,I most likely will not reply to any e-mail/neomail
unless it is really important.This guide will still be updated by me until
further notice.

Since December 1st,I have actually being getting more e-mails about my
guides,and I think putting this notice up on all of my FAQS will help.
If you just want to say farewell or want to send me something about neopets
which isn't related to this guide,then that is fine too.I will respond
to interesting questions and fix ridiculous mistakes detected by readers.


Ultimate Bullseye is one of my favourite games on Neopets.It consists of a
target and a crossbow and the aim of the game is to hit the bullseye!
(the centre of the target,like you didnt know) 
This game takes a lot of skill and practice so thats why I decided to make
a guide for this game,to help you with this at times,difficult game
So Read on and gain my knowledge...

Direct Link-www.neopets.com/games/bullseye.phtml
NP Ratio-800 np per 100 points
Limit-3 plays per day.

INTRODUCTION (From Neopets Website)
At last, Bullseye is back!!! You have ten shots to try and hit 
the bullseye in this medieval game of skill and timing! 
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the crossbow, keep the Space Bar down to
build-up power, and then release it to fire. If you manage to get a bullseye on
the last shot, you can keep on firing until you miss! 
Lastly, if you get a Bullseye you get a cool power-up to use for the next shot. 
Good luck! 

Up and Down arrow- Moves Crossbow
Space Bar-Build up Crossbow power, release to fire arrow.
Enter-Confirm options,powerup usage

-The Crossbow
Remember you have to have this positioned on the correct angle or it will 
affect your shot SERVERELY! You can have it just slightly to steep or low and 
you will at most get one or 2 points. A good place for most targets is the 
centre although if it is a bit higher or lower than the average raise the 
crossbow on a slightly higher or lower angle.

When you have the crossbow positioned correctly hold down the spacebar to 
build up power for the shot and release to fire. Timing is CRUCIAL.
If you let go too early, then the arrow will 'die down'.If you let go around 
full and then it will fly straight past the target.

-The target
Each Part of the target has a point value. Here they are.
Brown Wood  0pts
Outer Ring  1pt
2nd Ring    2pts
3rd Ring    3pts
4th Ring    5pts
Bullseye    10pts

When you hit the bullseye you get a special 'powerup' which can be used on a 
later turn.There is four different powerups and here is a short description
of each.

Fire Ring-Fire the arrow through the ring to get double points. So a bullseye
is worth 20 POINTS!!!.Be careful that you donít aim too low though because you 
could hit the pole and get no points at all :(. Also Remember that the power 
bar timing may be different for slower computers if you use this power up.

Punchbag Bob- This is punchbag bob from the one player battledome except he 
has an apple on his head If you hit the apple on its head you get 20 points!
But if you hit the body of punchbag bob or miss you get no points at all:(

Closer-Brings the target closer and makes it easier to hit.Remember that
different power levels may be required when using this powerup.

Expanding Bullseye- This makes the bullseye expand and shrink making it easier
to hit, if you time it right.

Powerup Symbols

Fire Ring-F
Punchbag Bob-P
Expand Bullseye-B
-Save all of your powerups until the end!!! Because if you hit the bullseye on 
your last shot you get an extra shot. You keep shooting until you donít get at
least 10 pts with one shot.Then the game ends.
Some people have made 300pts or more by doing this. 
My high score is 171.

-Use the punchbag bob and the fire ring powerups at the same time(I recommend
the last shot) because if you hit the apple with a fire arrow, you get 40 
However, If you miss you get nothing, which will be two wasted powerups.
Also remember that the powerup timing may be different for slower computers
and you may miss-time it altogether.

-Never release the arrow before the third line unless it is VERY CLOSE. 
Also never go full power because the arrow will just fly straight past the 

-Even if you have used up your three daily plays for NP, still play anyway for 
practice,so that you can get decent scores consistently.(Very few people can)

-NEVER submit a score under 25.If you are not getting at least 200 np
from this game per try and then practice so you can get 200 np all the

-This game is best played on fullscreen. You can aim the crossbow more 
accurately and will most likely get a higher score. As I found out, this game
is VERY HARD on small or normal screens and I have much more success on 
fullscreen.An average comparison is that I get an average of 30 on small or 
normal and 56 on fullscreen.So I defiantly recommend that you play this game 
on fullscreen.

-Also interestingly you seem to have momentum in this game. One game, you can 
get 3-4 bullseyes in a row and the next you will struggle to get even one 
bullseye for the entire day. 
Remember one time you may get 150 and the next game, you may only get 20. It is
what often happens to me.

- If you have 2 powerups and you only want to use the first,it will also use
the second for some strange reason.(Or it might be vice versa)

-Always play Bullseye on the same computer for optimum performance,points wise.


-If you have the crossbow aimed VERY HIGH on fullscreen the arrow will look 
(This is only on fullscreen)

-I just found this.When I was mucking around,and I scored one point,I got
told that I didn't score any points and the score couldn't be posted.Wierd
that I got the message and wierd that I tried to submit a score of 1 but 
-If you get a score of 225 or more you get an avatar! This is very hard to do 
and only the VERY BEST can get it. If you get it, than you are a true champion 
at this game.If you had got the avatar why would you be reading this anyway? 
You must be really bored ;)
Eventually though,this guide will guide you to the avatar:)

*I myself have not got this avatar,so it is pretty damn hard.


A-Duh,Ultimate Bullseye,use your brain!

Q-On the high score table,I saw someone who got 2000 points.Is that person
really THAT good or is he cheating?
A-He/she is either utterly Insane or they cheated. Their high score has been
eliminated from the chart so I say that they were cheating and got frozen.

Q-Is there cheats for this game?
A-No and Yes.No if you are talking about 'legal ones' and then no
Yes if you are talking about ones which will get you frozen.I do not
know these cheats though.

Q-What is that creature which controls the crossbar?
A-That I think is a Turtum, a rare medieval pet pet.

Q-Where can you buy a Turtum?
A-This has almost nothing to do with ultimate bullseye in general but you
should be able to pick one up at the medieval pet pet stall or at the auctions
trading post etc.

Q-How in the hell do you get 225 points for the Avatar?
A-Practice makes perfect.
Don't worry too much though because very few people can ever get it.
Getting the Ultimate Bullseye Avatar is very hard and requires either/both
skill and luck.Skill means consistenly hitting the bullseye,luck means
getting the big point Powerups time after time (Fire ring and Punchbag bob).

Q-Why did they change the text used for Ultimate Bullseye?
A-Don't know why because the old text looked way better.

So keep trying,you will get there one day.

This table is as of 30/6/04.It is at the end of the month,so it is a good 
indication of what kind of score you need to get a trophy in this game.

Just a little note-The ultimate bullseye trophy looks pretty cool and having
it in your trophy cabinet would make your cabinet and look up page a heckva
lot better.If you can get an Ultimate Bullseye trophy then kudos to you!
(unless you cheated,if you cheat,you deserve to be frozen,ICE COLD :o))
