See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

The Last Smiley is a game based on the NeoBoards, the on-site forum for Neopets. As the last Smiley, it's your job to return all the Smileys to the NeoBoards.

KissKiss Smiley

While an image of the KissKiss Smiley can be seen on the instructions board, the KissKiss Smiley isn't actually seen in the final game. However, it can be found within the unused level3_v8.w3d.

Hidden Graphics

During normal gameplay, the player is unable to see the ceiling of the skyboxes. While the Lost Desert simply has a plain blue ceiling, The Land of Emoticon has a starry night sky which goes entirely unseen. LastSmileyLandofEmoticon.png LastSmileyLostDesert.png

Additionally, the game's internal files have three unused skyboxes. They appear to be based on Neopets's Haunted Woods, Terror Mountain, and Meridell lands.

Hidden Messages

The file 00015f50.fff contains an unused text string. This text was formerly used in the Game Information for The Last Smiley's Games Room entry on Neopets.

OMGHI2U!!! lol ^_^... did u see wut he posted??? :)
ummm neo is broke, smileys arent working :[ :[

Yes, on that fateful day the smileys were indeed not working. They had been stolen and whisked away to place far, far away where they would have all the colour removed from them and would become plain, boring text. The players of Neopets would no longer laugh out loud, there would be no more rolling on the floor, and they could try as hard as they liked but their ... ummm .... arms would never come off.

In this game you play The Last Smiley. You must find, and liberate the other smileys and make your way through the world of Neopia back to the NeoBoards where you belong.  Use the arrow keys to move, and the spacebar to jump. Your game ends when all lives are lost.

Additionally, two ParentScripts labelled README FIRST and NOTES FROM ADAM can be found within the game's CastScripts. Both scripts are blank, presumably wiped for the game's final release.

Unused Areas

Three unused levels are stored on the Neopets servers under the names of level3_v1.w3d, level3_v2.w3d, and level3_v3.w3d.

level3_v1.w3d appears to be an earlier version of what would become the final game’s Level 6. In this level, a Sunglasses Smiley sits atop a shrine. To reach the Sunglasses Smiley, the player must jump atop a platform in front of the shrine. A secret Dung Smiley sits atop a pyramid.

level3_v2.w3d is a slight revision to level3_v1.w3d, replacing the platform in front of the shrine with three palm trees for the player to jump across before reaching the Sunglasses Smiley.

level3_v3.w3d takes place in The Land of Emoticon, and is entirely unique. The level is large, featuring a half-pipe with two Grin Smileys, three island platforms with a KissKiss Smiley, and a green, translucent underground tunnel system featuring a Catfish Smiley. The Catfish Smiley is just out of reach of the player, requiring a box to be pushed in order to reach it.
