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.

Creators’ favorite Islands: Shark Boy’s picks

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?…

If you haven’t heard of Wild West Island, here’s a picture of the Wild West Island info page:

The page says: A shadow is creeping across the frontier, and its name is El Mustachio Grande.  He’s the meanest, nastiest outlaw in the land, and he’s terrorizing the good folks of Wild West Island.  With your trusty horse by your side, only you stand between the Mustachio gang and total anarchy.  Can you bring Mustachio to justice, once and for all?

You can take a look at the page by clicking this link: http://www.poptropica.com/wildwest_island.html.  We’re not sure when Wild West Island will come out for non-members, but when we know, we’ll let you know!

A Not-so-great Animation Re-test

Animation re-test

Nothing like a make-up exam.

You’re going to have to go to the Creators’ Blog in order to see the animation, it won’t let you copy it.  The animation is of a horse running, but, after a few seconds, it goes into a position exactly like the one in the previous post.

~Icy Comet

No! Not a test!

Oh, wait. It’s an animation test. Thank goodness!

Well, that hardly gives us anything to work with. So I’m just gonna take a wild guess and say it’s a running pony! Yes, I know I’m a genious. I mean, nobody would’ve ever figured that out. 😀

…Cryptids Island! 

Some sharp-eyed Poptropicans reported seeing the Cryptids logo in the wild a little while back. The rumors were true. You can learn more at the Cryptids Island info page.

So what’s a cryptid? Well… there’s a lot still to discover!

😀 I know! Sounds soo awesome!
Icy Comet: I thought I would help Super Thunder’s post be even better, and add a picture of the Cryptids Island info page that was mentioned in Shark Boy’s post.  Here it is:
As usual, the picture is too small, so you can click on it to see a bigger one.  I’m so sorry about my small pictures!
