Neopets Beta Update V0.4.8 is LIVE!
The latest Neopets redesign update (beta) is live!
A various amount of content has been added, listed below:
The below maps have all been added/re-added for HTML5. Some have had a minor design change which is a welcome additon.
- Neopia Central
- Neopian Bazaar
- Neopian Plaza
- Kiko Lake
- Terror Mountain: Happy Valley
- Terror Mountain: Ice Caves
- Terror Mountain: Top of Terror Mountain
Random events are back!
Finally random events are now active across all converted pages! Hooray!
The below games are now live! At present you aren’t able to earn Neopoints on them, however we assume this is due to a testing phase with the wider community to address any issues before Neopoints are enabled.
As mentioned rpeviously Faerie Bubbles does havea balancing issue where colours not remaining in-game will show up to shoot, making the levels very difficult to pass. Neopets are working to address this issue ASAP
- Wheels will no longer disappear when clicked on and fail to display prizes.
- Wheel of Monotony no longer spins indefinitely if the player switches tabs.
- Database updates and miscellaneous fixes.
In the spirit of Halloween, we have launched Sketched Neo’s spooky layout! You’ll be able to see the full effect on Desktop viewing on a laptop/computer. However we have done a little Halloween theme for mobile too 🙂
Only within the last 5 or so years have we started to embrace Halloween here in Australia and we love it! So I hope you enjoy this themed layout as much as I did in building it!
In other site news, over the coming days I will be adding some new content that I have been working on. One of these will be a “builder” and others are throwback graphics that you would be familiar with if you were a Neopets player in the mid 2000’s.
As always we want to hear your suggestions of the type of content that we provide! So be sure to let us know in the Comments!

Neopets Beta News!
It has been a while since an update on new Beta releases on Neopets. Luckily TNT has announced some updates on the latest Beta conversion in the latest Neopian Times!
Beta Update v0.4.8 has been detailed in the Editorial, launching next week it will include the below updates:
Some of our favourite Flash Games are being re-relased now they have been converted to HTML5. They are:
Ultimate Bullseye (my personal favourite!)
It has been noted that Faerie Bubbles does have a know issue, that it’s diffuculty is quite hard and there will be a patch for this post launch of it being re-added to the site.
Pet Slots will be relased over the Holiday Season, a date hasn’t been specifically announced but this will come closer to the time as they are still in very early development.
They have also detailed that you will indeed be able to unconvert existing pets so there will be no need to make new ones. As well as this, Pet Slots will be able to be purchased on side accounts as well.
UC Pet Customisation
There is no release date at this stage. The main focus for TNT is Pet Slots but the UC’s are still an area the team are working on.
We’re definitely going to make sure that once we revive the UC Pets, that everyone will be able to customise them as well
Pay to play – TNT have outlined there is no intential for the main Neopets site be a “Pay to Play” beyond the current services of NC Mall/Items and Premium.
1. No. 2. Never. 3. Nothing. 4. Zero (outside of usual NC items). 5. We love this site too and would never do this to you.
Usukicon Capsules – Guidelines around the exlusion of things such as “Technology” for Neopian Times are now lifted from this edition forward.
Legends and Letters – These items are now tradeable
