The game will start after you click on the first button on the main page. You will be presented with a board that will be about face-down cards that you will have to match. Many Kiko pictures will be found on these cards. You will have to patch the Kiko face you will find with another one that is identical to it. In a short summary, in order to match the cards, they will both have to be with the same background color and with the same kiko picture showing. If they happen to be not the same, they will be flipped back. Your objective in this game is to find all the matching cards on the given boards so that you clear it and take up the points. Note that there will be a timer, so you will have to hurry if you’re after a high score or after the trophy.

This is exactly why you need memorization. After the first round, you may feel a little confident, but wait until you play all of the rounds before you make an opinion. During the first few rounds, you will only see the blue background of the cards. However, as you progress, they will switch to red and change their looking style too. Sometimes you will even see the same card but with a different background. For example, your first card can be a yellow kiko standing on a blue background, while the second card is also a yellow kiko, but standing on a red background.

Score & Points
Every time you complete successfully a round, you will be granted with 10 points. 5 points bonus will be given for every second that is remaining on the clock. Think: 10 points for finishing a level and 5 points for every second, that’s just too much! You do not want to waste a single second without reason. For example, if you finish level two and you have 3 seconds remaining on your timer, you will be given 10 + 3 x 5 = 25 points. Currently, the fourteenth round is not accessible. The thirteenth round is where the game will end at. Also, try not to score more than 2,000 points because most of the time they don’t get accepted for some reasons. Keep yourself at 1,995 points. What you can do is when you finish the twelfth round, you calculate how many points you will need to get 1,995. As an example, if you’re at 1,950 points, you will need 45 points. You know that 10 points will be granted upon successful round completion, so you will have to finish the round when you have 7 remaining seconds, because 7 x 5 = 35.
Neopets Kiko Match II Strategy & Tips
During the game, you will be able to type the cheat code “ineedmoretime” once per game to get 15 more seconds. Only use this code when it is needed and when your time is near the end, favorably in the later rounds when they get harder because of the backgrounds and more cards to combine. A good strategy will be to start from the top left and to turn all the cards in order. While doing that, keep repeating the shown cards in order so that it becomes easier for you to know where they are. Another strategy is when the game start to bring up new background colors, focus on remember the colors and not the kiko themselves, which will avoid confusion because as seen before, it is possible for example, for a blue kiko to be with a blue, red, yellow or red background. You can always use the mood of the kiko that is on the card if it helps you memorizing them, because you will then be able to say, for example, happy kiko top left, and if you happen to find the find kiko, you’ll know directly where it is and the reason behind that is because it is unique. Have fun.
