It started as sort of a kid's fad. Little cute-graphic creatures with cute designs and appealing attitudes. NeoPets (at http://www.neopets.com) has turned out to be MUCH more than that, and its variety of games and head-to-head combat have lured in gamers of all ages!
Just what are NeoPets? Think of them as little 'computer pets' that you take care of, in one sense. You choose what type of pet you want, you name it, you feed it and play with it. But for many gamers that is only one small side of the gaming experience that NeoPets offers.
Just click on the GAMES list on this site. They have everything from a tetris-like game, to memory games, to puzzle games, to hangman, to MasterMind, to space invaders, to Galaga, and much, much more. The games' graphics are all nicely done and the gameplay is pretty flawless.
Every game tracks high scores and different levels. You can compete as much as you want, and the more high scores you get, the more free NeoPoints that appear in your account daily! You use the NeoPoints to do all sorts of things in the Neopian worlds. Even if you don't care at all about NeoPoints, the games themselves are great fun.
And best of all - it's FREE!
If you enjoy on line gaming, and challenging yourself to beat the high scores, this is a spot to check out. Who knows, you mind find yourself feeding your little NeoCritter too!
