The Buzzer Game is a test of patience and concentration. It requires nerves of steel, as the Techo that runs it will try his hardest to knock you off your game. If you manage to master these traits, you may even win an avatar!

How to Play

The point of this game is to guide the hoop from one end of the wire to the other without touching it. If the metal hoop touches the wire, the buzzer will go off - this causes you to lose a life and restarts the level.

There is no time limit for each level, but you will receive bonus points if you manage to complete a level in under 30 seconds, for a total of 1 point per second remaining on the "bonus clock". Take note that you only have three lives in this game, and there are no opportunities to earn more.

Controls

The only control used in this game is your mouse. Click the green circle on the leftmost end of the wire to begin a level. After you have clicked it, the hoop will move where your mouse moves. You do not have to hold down the mouse button during the game; use your cursor to guide the hoop. Each level finishes when your hoop crosses over the red circle at the other end of the wire.

Distractions

Beginning at level 3 the game will throw many distractions at you in an attempt to make you lose a life. The main distraction is random noises, so you should mute your computer while playing. The Techo will also make faces at you, his eyes can glow red, and he sticks his tongue out whenever he pleases. In addition, a variety of fruits and other items will fall from the top of the screen, behind the wire, at random intervals.

Scoring

Each level is worth 20 points upon completion. The only other way to earn points during the game is through bonuses received for finishing levels in under 30 seconds. If you receive no bonus points, you will have to play all 15 levels in order to receive the avatar. There are no bonus points for ending the game with remaining lives.

However, this also means that you are guaranteed to receive the avatar if you are able to complete the game.

Strategy

There is actually a fairly simple and nearly foolproof strategy to playing this game successfully.

First, use the cheat code cheese before playing the first level. Typing this code in will make your mouse cursor pop up on the screen and remain there for the rest of the game. This allows you to use your cursor to guide the hoop, instead of trying to guess based on what you can see. As long as the tip (point) of the cursor remains in the center of the black wire, you're in the clear.

Second, do not be afraid to play each level as slowly as possible. It is not worth losing a life in an attempt to receive a bonus from the level.

Quick Tips

  • Mute your computer to decrease in-game distractions.
  • Use the largest game resolution to make the wire easier to see.
  • Type the code cheese at the beginning of the game to show the cursor.
  • Type the code salamander while the timer is ticking to skip a level. You will not receive any points, however you can use this code as many times as you want.
  • On level 13, you can skip over the entire loop, simply follow the wire to the right when you reach the intersection.

Level Solutions

In total, there are fifteen levels. You will not need to play all of them in order to achieve an avatar-worthy score, as long as you receive bonus points from some levels.
