Poptropica Version of the Olympics

So, I love (that’s capital letters L-O-V-E) the Olympics.  My two favorite things are the gymnastics and swimming.

So, yeah, I’ve spent most of my time watching the Olympics since they started.  And I’m not the only one who is loving these competitions.  The Creators are super excited about the Olympics.  The Poptropica version of the Olympics, that is.

Stars of track and field, you are beautiful people

If you’ve got summer games fever, you’re not alone. Everyone’s excited to see the world’s greatest athletes coming together to go for the gold in some of the toughest sporting events ever devised.

I’m talking about Poptropolis Games, of course, the Poptropica Island that lets you compete for glory in a variety of track and field events. Why settle for watching other people run, jump, and throw, when you can visit Poptropica right now and be a champion in your own right? Poptropolis Games is free for everyone to play!

GO USA!!!! 😀

And of course, since the Creators mentioned Poptropolis Games, I have to show my support for that as well.


Creators’ Favorite Islands #’s 4 and 5

So, if you don’t know about how the Creators are doing a series of posts about what their favorite islands are by now…well, let’s just say you need to get with the program.

So far we have Captain Crawfish with Red Dragon Island, Director D. with Cryptids Island and Legendary Swords, and Dr. Hare with Skullduggery Island.  I’m just waiting for someone to say Ghost Story Island…and, unfortunately, that beautiful day won’t be today.

First off, Comic Kid’s pick.  Or should I say picks.

Creators’ favorite Islands: Comic Kid’s picks

We’re sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Comic Kid.

I really loved the spooky yet fun feel to this island. I love Eastern Europe so designing the village and parts of the castle was quite a treat for me and I had fun all the while. Plus, who doesn’t want to be a bat and fly around? Talk about awesome!

Another genre I appreciate a lot is that of the cowboy and the Wild West. The building designs for this island were really fun to create and see developed. I really liked the sunset setting for Dusty Gulch, the island’s Main Street. In fact, I love all the towns for this island!

I don’t know…I liked Wild West Island okay but it wasn’t my favorite.  And Vampire’s Curse just seemed a little short to me.   But that might be just me.

Next up, Shark Boy’s breaking the record of how many things are your favorites with three things.  Guess he had a hard time choosing.

We’re sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Shark Boy.

I love mythology and really enjoyed seeing many mythological characters come to life with a fun Poptropica twist.

This was the first Island I helped write the story for, and where Shark Boy was born.

Although not a full island, this mini-quest is a personal favorite. I was able to write the story for this one, and even though it was a short quest, we were able to pack in a bunch of fun and interesting interactive elements.

So, Mythology Island.  I liked it.  But I wouldn’t include it in my list of favorites.  Shark Tooth Island’s okay.  I can see why Shark Boy would like it, though.  I mean, ya have to love the island that your little avatar/character thing is from.  And the Haunted House quest thing.  I don’t know, I haven’t played that in a long time.  So I don’t know what I think about that one.

Well, now that I’ve bored you to death with my boring opinions on everything, I think I’ll just leave you to be…bored?…

Creators’ Favorite Islands #3

You probably know about how the Creators are doing a series of posts about what islands are their favorites.  So far we’ve had Captain Crawfish with Red Dragon Island and Dr. D. with Cryptids Island.

The Creator who is revealing his favorite island today is another whose name begins with “Dr.”.  But this guy is a little bit furrier than Dr. D.

Think you know who it is?

Creators’ favorite Islands: Dr. Hare’s pick

We’re sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Dr. Hare.

Skullduggery Island is one of my personal favorites. I love the variety of gameplay on this Island. From classic questing to battling and trading on the high seas, this Island really has it all! That Crawfish fellow gave me some trouble though. If only I had my rabbot…

Well, that about wraps it up for right now.  Who do you think the next Creator to tell what their favorite island is going to be?  And what island do you think they will choose?


Creators’ Favorite Islands #2

So, as you probably know, the Creators are doing a series of posts, telling us what their favorite islands are.  The first one was with Captain Crawfish’s pick.  You would think that he would have picked Skullduggery Island.  After all, he’s one of the main characters in that.  But, instead he chose Red Dragon Island.  Weird, huh?

Well, yesterday, they did another post in this random and boring series of posts.  This time with Director D.’s pick.

It’s so much fun to see an island dedicated to some of the greatest urban legends of all time! The scariest part for me was the Jersey Devil.

I love sword fighting games! This adventure doesn’t disappoint. You get to battle an evil robot invasion, upgrade your swords, build up an inventory of energy crystals, and battle a huge robot before it reaches Poptropica!

Legendary Swords doesn’t really count as an island…  But, still, I thought they were only allowed to choose one thing.

Creators’ Favorite Islands

For some crazy reason, the Creators thought that we would be interested in which islands are their favorites.  As if we cared.  😉

They’ve started with Captain Crawfish.

Creators’ favorite Islands: Captain Crawfish’s pick

Over the next week, we’ll be sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Captain Crawfish.

My favorite is Red Dragon Island. I love the art for old Japan, and I especially like all the cool ninja powers you learn to use near the end. You wouldn’t expect an old sea salt with a peg leg could master the grappling hook, but I did it!

Just one thing I don’t understand…

Why would they start this at the end of the week?  That just doesn’t make sense to me…
