In Food Fight, you are a student in the cafeteria. You have food that you can throw at other students. By splatting other students, you can take their money which lets you buy better food, and better protection. You can also train to increase your skill.First Steps
The first thing you should do when you start the game is to go to the store and buy a grape or a T-Shirt. Then go Practice against some First graders. After each fight that you win, be sure to visit the bank and deposit your money. If you lose a fight your opponent will take some of your money! Once you have a few hundred pennies, go to the training area and bump up your skill points. This will help you against opponents that are otherwise equally matched with you. Save up $1000 and go back to the store and buy the item that you didn't get the first time. This should get you started.Store
You can buy better food and clothes at the store. Be sure to sell back your current item before buying a new one. If you buy a new item without selling the old one, the old item will go to charity. The more expensive the item, the better it is. You can only spend the money that is in your pocket, so visit the bank to withdraw your money.Fight Practice
You can practice by fighting an anonymous student. The higher the grade, the better they are, so you'll want to start out with a first grader. When you win, you get their money and some experience. If you lose, you lose 25% of the money in your pocket , and you lose some experience. Practicing is a great way to earn money and get better before challenging any of the ranked players. You only get a certain number of fights per day before the teacher catches you, so use them wisely and them come back tomorrow to play again. If you think you are about to lose a fight, you should run away. This will protect you from losing money and experience.Challenge
This is how you can move up in the rankings! Challenge your fellow players to a food fight, and if you walk away with fewer spots, then you take their spot in the rankings. You can challenge people below you to boost your win/loss ratio and to get some extra money. 10% of the money that your opponent has in their pockets when they lose is now yours! But be careful, because 10% of the money in your pocket goes to them if you lose. Your opponent does not need to be online to challenge them. The challenge is based purely on their clothes, food and skill. You only get a certain number of challenges per day before the teacher catches you, so use them wisely and then come back tomorrow to play again.Training
Here you can improve your offensive or defensive skills. Your offensive skill level helps determine how many spots you splat for when you fight an opponent. Your defensive skill level helps you avoid being hit for as many spots by your opponent. Better forms of training will give you more skill points, but also cost more. You can only spend the money that is in your pocket, so visit the bank to withdraw your money. The maximum skill you can have is 4,294,967,295.Kitchen
In the kitchen you can either freeze or microwave your food. This will make it either more accurate or more powerful. You cannot have both, so you must pick which one you want. Freezing it makes it much more accurate and slightly less powerful. Microwaving it makes it more powerful and slightly less accurate. When you buy some new food, it starts out as neutral. The price of using the kitchen is 10% of the cost of your food.Bank
At the bank you can deposit or withdraw money. If you lose a fight, you will lose some of the money in your pocket, so be sure to deposit all your money into the bank before fighting a tough food fight.Rankings
This shows the current rankings of all the players of the game. You can challenge players above or below you to a challenge. If you win, your rank may go up. If you lose, your rank goes down.Getting Kicked Out of School
Players who do not participate in at least one food fight every 1 month will be kicked out of the school and will have to start over again with nothing. Players that have purchased upgrades are immune to getting kicked out of school.Winning
When you run out of things to buy at the store, you are probably powerful enough to challenge the principal and win. If you win, your character is reset to level 1, but you get a fancy trophy displayed next to your name to show to everyone that you've beaten the game. Each time you beat the game, you get another trophy added to your name. The first time you beat the principal, you graduate and go into high school. There is a separate ranking for high school students. As a high school student, the ultimate challenge is to beat the superintendent. If you beat the superintendent, you graduate and are automatically retired.Retiring
You can retire whenever you want by going to the "Retired Ranking" page and reading the instructions. You are also automatically retired when you beat all 2 levels of the game (elementary school, and high school). When you retire, your character will be listed in the retired rankings and you can start the game over with a new character.Icons
Players with this icon next to their name have beaten the final opponent for their level. You get one trophy each time you beat the final opponent.
