Poptropica Forgotten Islands 

 

Most home console games that are ported over to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch are not worth their salt. Some PC ports are good, but many of them are not worth your time or money either. The iOS platform has been dropping in terms of value due to so many quick cash in products, and the bait and switch free apps.

This is the environment Ubisoft releases Poptropica Forgotten Islands. This game is not as good as the Personal Computer version. However it is way better than that atrocious Nintendo DS game. Poptropica Forgotten Islands captures the spirit of the PC game. Plus there are no in-app purchases.

Kids (and even adults) create their own character and then go around completing quests. We collect coins, purchase items, and change the look of our character. We fly on our blimp to new island groups, and complete all of the quests there. Most of the quests are simple - go find these items, and bring them back.

Families will get multiple hours out of Poptropica Forgotten Islands. The $4.99 price is a bit high for an app like this one. I hope they add additional island groupings for free in the future. There is still more game play in Poptropica Forgotten Islands than in the Poptropica DS game (Poptropica Adventure).

The problems I had with Poptropica Forgotten Islands are characters like the witch doctor, and the controls. It took me a few minutes to learn how to control my character in Poptropica Forgotten Islands. Once learned, it made sense. Press where you want to walk or jump towards. Pressing up and right on the screen will have your character jump up toward the right. It is actually simple and intuitive when you figure it out.

Poptropica Forgotten Islands is a very solid questing game for kids of all ages. The graphics are bright and colorful. The music is fresh and happy. The quests are interesting and fun to complete. There are numerous adjustments players can make to their character. Poptropica Forgotten Islands just needs new island groupings for exploration.
