Habbo Hotel Mini Game - Snow Storm
This is a snowball fight game between Team Red and Team Blue. You can play this game three times a day, but if you are a Habbo Club member, you can have unlimited game play.
How to play Snow Storm
There is a maximum of 5 members in each team, which means that in one round, there can only be a maximum of 10 players. You are either in Team Red or Team Blue. The minimum amount of players for the game to start is 4.
When the game starts, there is a blue bar at the left side of the screen. It shows you that you have 5 snowballs that you can shoot at the opposing team. There is a green speech bubble at the bottom of the blue bar. Clicking on it allows you to recharge your snowballs, but you can only recharge 1 snowball per click.
There is a counter at the top right hand corner of the screen. There are two gloves, one red and the other blue. These keep track of the score your team earns throughout the round. The score depends on the number of hits against your opponents.
There is a flag button at the top left hand corner of the screen. Clicking on it will have a pop-up message that asks if you want to surrender. If you do, the score you have earned for your team will not count and you exit the game.
Aiming a snowball at the opposing team
All you need to do is move your mouse over to one of the users in the opposing team and click. The snowball fires and it takes a while to hit them, depending on the distance between you and your opponent. When you see the snowball approaching, you can take this time to run so that it does not hit you. If multiple snowballs hit you or the opponent, your character falls down and has snow covering your face. You will take a few seconds to recover, so you can’t do anything else but wait.
The closer you are to the opponent, the better. You can hit your opponent easily since it would not give them much of a chance to avoid getting hit by it. However, when you are throwing snowballs, your character stays at the spot and throw. This allows one of the users from the opposing team to aim snowballs at you and hit you, causing you to fall down and taking a few seconds to recover.
How to avoid getting hit by a snowball
Walking around randomly is a good way to avoid getting hit by a snowball as it is hard for the snowball to actually hit you when you are moving. You can also hide behind things such as trees or ice blocks to stay hidden and not get hit.
My thoughts on Snow Storm
In Snow Storm, I enjoyed pelting snowballs at the opposing team. Missing your opponent or watching your character fall can be annoying but it's nevertheless enjoyable to play this game. Even though I have never had snowball fights with my friends in real life, this game allowed me to do so with strangers and it was enjoyable to do so. I also managed to make new friends on Habbo while playing this mini game.
Habbo Hotel Mini Game - Fast Food
This is a game where you are a waiter or waitress at a restaurant and you are serving food to the customers using parachutes. This is an individual game where you are playing against two other players. There are power ups provided in the game, too.
How to play
There is be a large green arrow button when the game starts. You must wait for the food to be ready by looking at the red colored timer, and once the food is ready click on the green arrow button. This sends the food falling down to the table. The green arrow button will disappear and in its place is a red parachute. Click on the parachute to slow down the falling and allowing it to land on the table without the plate being shattered to pieces.
You will need to send 6 dishes of food safely down to your table first in order to win the game. The number of stars coloured represent the number of dishes you have successfully sent down to your table.
Types of dishes in the game
There are five types of dishes in the game:
- Drinks tray
The soup, burger and pizza are the lightest in weight and the drinks tray and cake are heaviest in weight.
For the soup, burger and pizza, you can click on the parachute when it is close to the table. For the cake and drinks tray, when they are halfway down, you need to click on the parachute to ensure that the dish is safely on the table.
The power ups give up advantages while playing fast food. There are three types of power ups and you can use up to three of each type per game. You can buy these power ups using Credits, or receive them at random after you finish a game.
Missiles are a very common choice of power ups because you can use them to fire at an opponent’s dish, causing the dish to be destroyed. Another power up, the shield, blocks these missiles from damaging the opponent’s dish. If the dish is already on the table, the missile is not able to destroy the dish.
The difference between a large parachute and a normal parachute is that this green parachute will almost stop your food from breaking into pieces when it is very near the table. It is useful, especially when you are serving cake or drinks tray.
These shields will protect you against missiles and your dish cannot break if it hits the table at a high speed. Therefore, the price of this power up is 5 credits for 5 shields. If you just started playing Fast Food, you can get 5 of them for free.
