Creators' favorite Islands: Master Mime's picks

We're sharing the Poptropica creators' picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Master Mime.

I really get a kick out of Wild West Island. This island has a lot of fun elements like riding a horse on top of buildings, shooting at targets with a pea shooter, herding lost cattle with a lasso. I’ve had many compliments from the residents about how tough I look with an old dusty cow poke hat, some strawberry chewing gum in my lip, and a rattle snake rope by my side.

For a mini island experience, nothing beats the adrenaline rush of swinging those Legendary Swords at those wacky E-Vile robots.

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!

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…

Creators' favorite Islands: Director D.'s picks

We're sharing the Poptropica creators' picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Director D.

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!

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!

Gravity malfunction!

I guess traveling into outer space is one way to lose weight...

Life's a beach

It's a bittersweet occasion when an Island becomes available to everyone. Sweet, because -- well, obviously because everyone can play! Bitter, because it means that some of the Members-only items for that Island are gone for good. That's the case with the exclusive "Beachgoer" costume on Wimpy Boardwalk. Time is running out to get it!

Poptropica Members can get their Beachgoer costume for the next few days. Better act fast, because once it's gone, it's gone! (The Beach Umbrella and Heat Wave power will remain in the store.)

Wimpy Boardwalk will be available to everyone this Thursday Wednesday, July 18. Watch this blog for the official announcement!

A look behind the boardwalk

Now that Wimpy Boardwalk is here for Poptropica Members to enjoy, we wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look at its development. Here's a part of the Poptropica team hard at work on the Island shortly before it came out.

That's Poptropica creator and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney giving artistic direction to some of our designers.

We have an incredibly talented staff of artists and programmers who are working hard every day to make Poptropica the greatest it can be. And nothing puts a smile on our faces like releasing a new Island to the world. Say cheese!


Wimpy Boardwalk is available now for Poptropica Members, along with three Members-only items. Not a Member? Find out how to become a Poptropica Member today!

What's your Thunder Volt high score?

We're all huge fans of Thunder Volt here, which you can play as a part of the bonus quest on Wimpy Boardwalk. It doesn't look like anybody will ever be able to top Greg Heffley's score. Friendly Bug here didn't even come close.

How does your score compare?

Is there ever a bad time for pandas?

A little over a year ago, we released an Island in cooperation with our friends at Magic Tree House. It's called Red Dragon Island, and if you haven't played it, you're missing out on a thrilling adventure through old Japan with Jack and Annie, the heroes of the Magic Tree House series.

(Oh, and you also get to master a bunch of awesome ninja skills like climbing up walls and using a grappling hook.)

Whether you've been through Red Dragon Island before or not, now's a great time to head back. Not just because it's a great adventure, but because the Magic Tree House store has been updated with the latest, greatest books from the series. Head on over to Poptropica and visit Red Dragon Island to get the scoop on A Perfect Time for Pandas, and its accompanying Fact Tracker, Pandas and Other Endangered Species.

And then find the ninja master and get to work!

Congratulations to the first 10 finishers of Wimpy Boardwalk!

Summertime's not easy for a Wimpy Kid, but these Poptropicans had no problem working their way to the end of the Wimpy Boardwalk. Congratulations to the first ten players to finish Wimpy Boardwalk! Let's hear it for:

1. Trusty Leopard

3. Shaky Sun

4. Big Fang

5. Sporty Boa

6. Perfect Lion

7. Silver Eagle

8. Jumpy Penguin

9. Lone Crumb

Nice to see all those beachgoers in there, and of course you need a ghost hunter for real summer fun.
