The Achievements Portal

Achievements are very similar to Badges. They are badges which can be worn around the hotel to show off various tasks a player has completed. The Achievements system was introduced in September 2008 and was brought in as a scheme to allow more Habbos access to badges. Originally, badges would only be awarded during competitions of campaigns to a select few users, while the introduction achievements opened badges up to the whole community. Achievements also have multiple levels, allowing users to build up to the top level slowly.

Achievements now cover many different areas of the hotel with a total of 9 different categories, containing achievements ranging from respecting Habbos, receiving scratches for your pet and even send presents to friends. There are some achievements which will require users to spend credits to achieve higher levels although the vast majority do not require credits and only time put into the achievement. Future updates introduced Achievement Scores to the hotel which saw points added for each achievement earned which encouraged many users to put more effort into earning achievements to have a high score to show off. In Habbo's past, it was possible to link your account to a Facebook profile and users were able to share achievements on Facebook. Friends of the user were then able to earn both themselves and the original user more points by clicking the link shared.

In the past there has been much discussion over the achievement score and whether it is a good or bad idea. The causes for this is the fact that users with a low score are more likely to be singled out by users who have a higher score, often referring to them as 'noobs.' Another downfall of the system is users creating rooms to boost achievement scores, allowing for an unfair disadvantage to some users.

Battle Banzai is an improved version of Habbo's old game, Battle Ball. Battle Banzai was released on 21 September 2010 along with a range of furniture to decorate rooms.Battle Banzai still uses the same concept of Battle Ball but with more features. There are also Achievements to be earned from playing Battle Banzai such as achievements for scoring a certain amount of tiles.

Gameplay

To play Battle Banzai, the host requires four pieces of furniture; a timer, scoreboards, tiles and changing gates. The players must enter the Battle Banzai arena through a changing gate

to add a space hopper to their user, the colour of the gate determines the colour of the hopper a Habbo is on. There are four coloured teams available for Battle Banzai which are; blue, purple, yellow and green. The actual playing field/arena depends on the hosts choice as they set out the playing field/arena themselves from the furniture purchased.

The game aims to lock the most tiles on the playing field. When the timer is up, or all of the tiles have been locked, the winning teams' locked tiles flash on and off and the winners from the team wave automatically. Then, the game resets, and all the tiles turn off.

To make things fair, there is a limit of five players per team. If a sixth player tries to get through the team's changing gate, they will not have a space hopper added to their avatar as there are already five players on the team. As soon as one person from that team leaves, another person will be able to join.
