I understand most of you will probably faint when you see me posting about another adoptable site. And Chicken Smoothie, of all things! God forbid!
But because I haven’t posted all month, and my only planned post hasn’t even started yet (hopefully it will be up by the end of next week) I’ve decided that I might as well post about the Chicken Smoothie Halloween Event as a sort of teaser. I apologise if it causes any bleeding of the eyes or mental pains.
Ok, first of all you need to have a fairly good idea of what Chicken Smoothie is:
- You adopt new baby pets each month a try to collect all the outcomes (if you want).
- You can also dress up pets with items, but I don’t. You might as well get all the free ones anyway, so you can trade them on the forums.
- Most of the time you get items from ‘The Store’. These cost real money, but have a look through them anyway because there are a few free ones.
- On the forums you can chat about your pets, trade with other players, and if you know where to look, get free stuff.
- You can organise your pets into different groups to show them off, or post them on your website or signature using the codes provided.
It’s kinda girly, to be honest. I’m just there for the collection. I love collecting things…
Now, on to the event!
What is it?:
It’s a special event for Halloween, with unique pets up for grabs. Last year all they had was an adoptable pumpkin which grew into one of these four pets on Halloween:
This year though, you need to earn the pets. Hidden around the forum is a clickable banner which will give you a prize. This prize will be any of these:
These are actually all just items items to dress up your pet with. The big ghosts serves no other purpose, but the other three smaller sweets can be used to purchase items from the special Halloween page. Note that you have to wait half an hour before you can go looking for the banner again.
I’m only going to post the pets that I get, so if you want to see the rest quicker then go to the link above. This also means that I won’t be posting any items since I don’t like them and won’t be wasting my sweets on them. Again, go to the Halloween page if you want to see them.
Also, you can get some free items on the Halloween page, near the top. Two different trick-or-treat bags and a few sweets (not the kind you can trade for pets though). Ignore the message beside them, too. The items don’t help your forum search in any way.
There are some new pets in the Store as well. Again,they cost real money, and it would be hard to trade for one. Which just makes them even more wanted.
That’s all. Thanks for reading. You can go now.
Don’t forget to read my new Spore post as well.

What should the next review be?
Looks like the DSi Browser! It should be up by Monday 17th. Oh, I’ve already decided the review for the week after. FlipNote Studio.
Since Woof has betrayed the awesomeness that is Nintendo (I’ve only ever owned Nintendo Stuff: GBC, GBA, N64, GameCube, DSPhat, DSLite, Wii and DSi), someone needs to restore dignity to the web. So, for the next 6-7 Weeks, I’ll be reviewing 6 or 7 (That’s 1 a week, OMG) DSiWare games. Everything from WarioWare: Snapped! to Paper Plane Chase. If you’ve seen a DSiWare game somewhere, or you want to know more about one, comment on this – or any other – of my DSiWare review posts.
This first review is of WarioWare snapped. The game, like every other WarioWare game, has no particular purpose or storyline. It’s just a way to have fun. Which i can say this game does relatively well, keeping with the WarioWare family. It costs 500 Points on the DSiShop. That’s (At The Time of Posting) £3.50, $5.85 and €4.10. Considering you get 1,000 points for free, I’d definitely make this one of the games you get with those points.
Before you play this game, make sure you’re sat in front of a dull coloured wall, becauseof the way the camera works, if the wall is too bright or cluttered, it wont pick you up. <I don’t recommend playing outside, since
a) It doesn’t work
b) Your DSi Might get stolen
On the home screen, there are 6 Options
- Wario – I’d start off on this Roller-coaster. Basics are always good, and it’s probably the most fun.
- Mona – She has some fun games, but the end result isn’t quite as good. I’ll go into more detail on each Coster in a minute.
- Jimmy T – This is my favourite. Not for the games, but purely for the Comic-Strip at the end
- Kat & Ana – This is the multi player mode. Can’t say much about this one, since I haven’t played it yet.
- Help – This is more or less useless, since the game is self-explanatory
- Credits – The most awesome credits mini game ever – you control the roller-coaster and try to get as many points as possible. WOW
Now for a much more in-depth look. If you can’t be bothered to read this, then just walk away. Well, you can’t actually walk away. Just don’t click the More Link

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my 3 years on the internet, it’s that things grow fast. Take YouTube for example. It has a massive community, but I bet you wouldn’t guess it was founded in 2004. Just 5 years and look how big it is. And then look at Twitter. It’s user base expanded by 500% last year. That’s like doubling it, doubling it again, and adding what they already had to that. And the next great thing has just come along. And it’s name: Chrome Experiments
Starfield is one of those things that’s always fun. The direction that the stars move is determined by where you mouse is on the screen, meaning they can go anywhere. You can also blur them, so that they have a comet like tail, by holding down your left mouse button.
This was the first Chrome Experiment I ever tried, and probably the reason I checked out more. You create balls by clicking and dragging the cursor, and then you move them, shake them and get rid of them. By double clicking the background, you can also change the colour of the balls and background.
All you need to make this app work is a Microphone connected to your computer. You then choose you microphone, choose a character, and you’re off! As you talk, the mouth on the person will open and close accordingly, making it seem as if they are talking. I absolutely love this Experiment, and can’t wait for some more character’s to come
Ball Droppings is really quite unique. A hole drops balls continuously (at a rate you can change), and you can then direct the balls by drawing lines. As a ball hits a line, it makes a noise. The further down the screen a ball gets, the lower the noise. You can also change how gravity affects them, and, if you like, make them travel up instead of down! If you really wanted too, I suppose you could even make a song using lines and editing the gravity with this…….
That conclude’s my review of Chrome Experiments, which you can find at http://chromeexperiments.com
