Codes will only be of combinations of white, black, red and blue, at the beginning of the game, as the game goes further, more colors will be added, meaning the game will get a little harder. The colors orange plus the sixth code, the purple and the tenth. This game is about guess.

It is located on the right of the screen. Note that if your guess is not valid, it will be returned to the outer edge up with four circles next to it. You may be wondering what the circles are. They are stones with colors indication if it is in the right position or not. In addition, white circles mean that a stone is not in the correct color nor in the proper position, the orange circles mean that the said stone is in the correct colors, but in the wrong position.

Neopets Time Tunnel Strategies & Cheats

One of the best strategy out there is to figure out the colors that are in the correct code, then to go finding about their actual positioning at the same time as you are finding the right colors. A good thing to keep in mind is to forget about your score so that you can finish a combination with the peace of mind. You can restart the game later if you’re going after a trophy. Do not pay attention to the remaining time, instead, focus on solving the codes even if the time is running out. The more you play, the better you will become. Keep in mind the colors you have confirmed and introduce new colors at the same time as confirming the locations of the existing ones. This way, you will save a lot of time.
