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?…

Are you a peacemaker or a bandit?  Choose which side you are on with the new costume from the Poptropica Store!

Here are the girls’ costumes:

Wild West Island Peacemaker- Press the SPACEBAR, and you will twirl your gun around.

Wild West Island Outlaw- Press the SPACEBAR, and you will shoot two guns.

Here are the boys’ costumes:

More Daily Pop Sneak Peeks! Not AGAIN!

Now, it’s time to show you more Daily Pop Sneak Peeks!  Will these things never end?

Jewel in the Rough- A Wild West character goes from sketch to reality.

Earliest Poptropica- The sketch that became the Giant's garden on Early Poptropica.

Tounge Tied- That's one dogged- looking pony.

Everybody Wins- Everything is coming up aces in this Wild West town.

Wild West Preview Page

There’s a new preview page for Wild West Island!  Here’s a picture of it:

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 lands, 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 ananrchy.  Can you bring Mustachio to justice, once and for all?

Somehow I sense another big fight that seems to come at the end of all the hard islands.  *sigh*

The island will come out sometime in Febuary for Members, and then, of course, there comes a long wait for non-members…

Edit: Here’s the Creators post, telling about the info-page (oh, so that’s what it’s called) for Wild West Island.

Get ready to go Wild!

…Wild West, that is.

You can play the Wild West Island preview right now on Poptropica. We’ve also put up our Wild West Island info page, which has some juicy new details about the next Poptropica adventure. Now, I know a little something about striking fear into the hearts of an Island’s citizens, but this Mustachio Grande fella sounds like a real terror!

Perhaps I should shoot him a text.
