The Best of the Land: Haunted!

Congratulations to Silver Lightning, whose devious maze was the readers' choice for best Obstacle Course.

Our final challenge has ended. We've looked through thousands of your best Haunted lands, and the hairs on the backs of our necks still haven't sat back down. On this Halloween, we think these ten lands especially will set the properly spooky mood.

From Brave Owl, this is one forest we wouldn't want to walk through at night.

From Cuddly Ring, a house of horrors with three levels of thrills.

From Dangerous Tooth, a classic haunted mansion.

From Fast Lizard, an amazing paranormal panorama.

From Fearless Lizard, a floating fear factory.

From Friendly Raptor, these are two great tastes that taste terrifying together.

From Invisible Octopus, this is one great pumpkin.

From Popular Fish, it's a ghost ship adrift on a sickly sea.

From Prickly Fish, we're just going to assume this gargantuan skeleton creature is reaching out for a big hug.

From Red Singer, there's a surprise around every turn in this haunted house.

But that's just our opinion. Which of these Haunted lands is your favorite? Vote in our poll on the sidebar!

The Poptropica Land public preview is now closed. We hope everyone had a good time trying it out. Your creations and your feedback are invaluable as we prepare for an official launch of Poptropica Land early next year.

The Poptropica Land alpha remains available to Poptropica Members. Become a Member today so the fun doesn't have to end!

The Best of the Land: Obstacle Courses!

Congratulations to Serious Bird, whose fast-food-themed village was the readers' choice for the best Village. Congratulations on your delicious accomplishment.

Today, we're sharing our picks for the best Obstacle Courses. Over the weekend, a lot of dangerous-looking Lands came in from Poptropicans. Once again, there were far more incredible creations than we have room to share here. Thanks to everyone who submitted. Here are our favorites!

From Comical Ant, here's an ant farm maze. Mr. Silva from Shrink Ray Island would feel at home here!

From Dangerous Fox, a very spelunky obstacle course.

From Fast Lizard, it looks like Myron Van Buren has another devious challenge in store for his, er, houseguests.

From Prickly Fish, this one packs a lot of gameplay into a small space.

Serious Bird's Village won the readers' poll. He's still climbing the ladders of success.

From Shifty Bubbles, this one takes you up, down, and underwater.

From Shy Paw, this intricate course will take you to every corner of the screen!

From Silly Whale, it's nice to see someone who just wants players to have a bouncin' good time.

From Silver Lightning (another repeat Land challenge champ), this multi-screen course is truly a-maze-ing!

From Silver Sun, we would have liked this no matter what, but the sword-wielding statue certainly made its point.

Those were the ones we liked best. What about you? Tell us which of these Obstacle Courses you liked the best by voting in our poll on the sidebar!

The Poptropica Land public preview is open through this Thursday, as is the Best of the Land Challenge. Today through October 30, we want to see your best Haunted Lands. We'll reveal our favorite Haunted Lands on Friday -- Halloween!

Some of you have been wondering how to submit your creations to the Best of the Land Challenge, so we put together a short video to show you.

Visit Poptropica now to build and share your Haunted Land before the public preview ends this Thursday!

The Best of the Land: Villages!

First of all, congratulations to Zany Crown for being the readers' choice for the best Dream Home. Your prize: the satisfaction of a job well done.

Just as with the Dream Home challenge, we've received thousands of entries in which Poptropicans have shown us their best Villages. After poring through them all, here are our favorites!

From Cool Sponge, an old-fashioned village that looks like the perfect place to hold the inaugural constitutional convention. (Cool Sponge also made it into Monday's Dream Homes!)

From Creepy Goose, how clever is this? She zoomed way out for a blimp's-eye view of her village.

From Friendly Heart, imagine waking up to that giant shrubbery every morning. It wouldn't be terrifying at all.

From Ice Age, an intricate desert setting. Unfortunately, Ice Age wasn't a registered user so we can't share their avatar with you! Always a good idea to save your game.

From Mad Comet, here's a medieval village that seems to be struggling with a dragon problem. (Mad Comet, too, was featured on Monday!)

From Neat Tiger, we can see why they needed to build this village above the flood plain. Looks like they've got everything up there!

From Popular Shadow, it's another dragon! Let's hope this one is a protector. If not, we know exactly what to do.

From Serious Bird, you don't have to go far for a bite to eat in this town. Does the building on the right shake in an earthquake?

From Silver Lightning, another underwater-themed world! We'll take the raft, thank you very much.

From White Flyer, it looks like a Poptropica Main Street! Even without the blimp it's a dead ringer. Well done.

Those are our favorites. What about yours? Tell us which of these Villages you liked the best by voting in our poll on the sidebar!

The Poptropica Land public preview is still going, as is the Best of the Land Challenge. Today through October 26, we want to see your best Obstacle Course. We'll reveal our favorite Obstacle Courses on Monday.
