Forum Pets - Boingies!

Okay, here's the deal. This is a simulation virtual pet forum bit. You can adopt differenct kinds of smiley creatures called Boingies and care for them, take them on adventures, raise them and keep them healthy until they are old enough to defend themselves in the wilds of Spring Island (Image coming soon (Not a very good one, though)). To complete your Boingy's life, you must first adopt one. They come in several colours: Blue, Turquoise, Purple, Red, Yellow, Green, Gold and Orange. First you adopt a Boingy, then it's yours!

To raise a Boingy, you must win it ten medallions of life. They are key to a Boingy's age. Getting all ten requirs gaining awards for courage, bravery, burger eating, saving innocents, etc. Each award wins you one half of a medallion. To do this, you must travel through Spring Island and find places to win the awards, or just to buy things for your Boingy at the local store. However, strange things happen on Spring Islands. They include rebellions, aliens, afros, snakes, Indiana Jones and the most boring man in history. These infiltrate your quest.

But Boingies need care and attention! If you do not buy them food with your money (You start of with about $100 and find ways of making money) then they starve and die. If you do not play with them and buy them toys, they run away or disobey you, and sometimes turn against you! This is vital, so keep an eye on your Boingy's health!

I hope this works on the forum. Please don't lock it. I wish to try it. Please!

Your location is now: Bounce Beach.

Welcome to Bounce Beach! You and your Boingy, Boojum, have arrived here to help your Boingy grow up. You get up, off the sandy ground and start making your way towards the woods.

But which way to go? Left? Right? Or straight ahead?

You decide!

After a long walk through the forest, you meet a man with rotting teeth!



"Go to Springstep Village!" He cries. He then runs off before you can reply. Should you heed his advice and go north to Springstep Village, or continue going towards Sandystone Town?

Your act of violence on such a peaceful town has started a riot!



Quick as a whipsnapper, you leap into the nearest fancy dress shop and disguise you and Boojum.

The street performer has disappeared.

What now?

*I grab the drink off the guy
and throw it onto the fiddle player,
then I take his bow and fiddle
like a freak causing him
to burst into flames,
which do not hurt him because
he is actually satan;
"I knew that."
and I offer my boingie soul
to the lord of darkness
who transforms me into
a Hell Spawn Boingie.*

Your Boingy, Boojum, has had his soul imprisoned in the bowels of Hell. Your game is over.

You're just a poor loser, Darth.

And really you did cause a fire hazard and gave your soul to the devil...

two forum members,
two forum mod's actually
and well it is a nice way
of saying pass,
I do not think I will bother
to post or play this game;
and yet I play, ME.
the only person on this
GF forum playing your game.
I give it a chance,
I kind of think that makes me
well a good sport really,
because I could have ignored
your efforts and let this post
to go the way of the versus game
(which by the way has never seen
a player or gotten a response)
but no I tried to play along,
and I was trying to inject
a bit of action and excitement
into your game;
go left, right, or straight ahead
WOW! you should have a job
at Lucasarts programing GF2.
just think of it?
*insert image later on*
bold type face interface
blocky pixcelated Manny
"player chose L? R? or S?
send in your resume Sanspoof,
I mean quit highschool,
and forget college or university."

most likely he meant was
what a weinner you were
Eggplant for even playing
this game in the first place.

But I stand corrected.
you are right Snaspoof.
I should not have said
mod's close this post,
it is not my place.
and I should not have even
posted this reply;
I should merely let time
and silence envelope this
game just like the versus game.
And for that I thank you,
I was a poor sport
to even sugguest it.

But I will not make
that mistake a second time.
