Skywire VIP Extended is a quiz game that serves as the fourth instalment to the Skywire series and the second in the "VIP" collection of Skywire games. It was initially created and uploaded to the Scratch website on January 9, 2012. The game would later be discovered by Nitrome, who released a version of it to their website on March 9, 2012 with slight modifications.

Levels

A cable car will drop off a passenger on the stage, and the player has to write where the character is from, or the characters name. If the player gets stuck, they can click a spotlight with a "?" on a yellow background to get a hint, but when they complete the question, they only get 50 points, instead of the usual 100.

There are 100 groups of one or more bean people that the player must figure out in the Nitrome game. Below are the answers for the Nitrome version of the game.

The ending is similar to the ending of Skywire VIP. Although being similar, it is considerably shorter. All of the characters are shown, and they talk. Their speech loops.

Heather: Well folks we're now at the end of our show!

Mat: And what a show it was...

Heather: Everyone turned up who was invited!

Mat: As well as a few who weren't!

Heather: Ah, you have to love those z-listers!

Mat: And with that there's only one thing left to say...

Heather: Good Night and have a safe journey home!

Mat: Hey, isn't this what we said at the end of the first game?

Heather: Yeah, looks like Mat couldn't be bothered to write anything new!

Mat: Hang on, isn't what we are saying now new?

Heather: Yeah, I guess it is!

Mat: Maybe it's the two fans Duncan and Max writing it this time...

Heather: Nah, it certainly sounds like Mat's stupid ramble again!

Mat: Last time we talked for ages before it finally looped...

Heather: Well at least there was a humorous twist!

Mat: Hooray! This will probably not just loop here then! Vipextended

Version differences

There are some differences from the Nitrome and Scratch version of the game. The differences are some bean characters, the menu, and box words are written in. Also, some levels of the scratch version contain multiple passwords for some levels. Some bean people and passwords which were included in the Scratch version were absent from the Nitrome version, possibly due to copyright issues.

Updates

  • March 13th 2012 - Nitrome removed the level with the answer My Neighbour Totoro, as neighbour holds two different spellings: Neighbor in the US and Neighbour in the UK and Canada.[1] Nitrome also added some extra characters, referred to as The Z-Listers. The Energizer Bunny was also removed from the game for unknown reasons.

Trivia

  • The highest possible score that can be obtained in the game (without hacking) is 20,000 points. This score is possible to obtain ($ Level Score $ (100 if hint is not used)$ + Time Bonus $ (100 if the player inputs the password in less than a single second)$ x 100 $ (game has 100 levels)$ = 20,000 $), but very hard, as the player has to input the password in every level in less than one second, which requires the player to be able to type extremely fast. The player also cannot use a hint, as that splits the score for the level from 100 to 50.
