Say that three times fast! It's hard isn't it? :)
I was sent this game to review....oh should I say for Gabriel to review. ;) He was pretty excited to be getting a game in the mail. And even more excited when he found out that it was free! My kids love hearing when we get a good deal...and free IS always a good deal.
I told him that I needed his help and he would have to play the game and then tell me what he thought about it.
He wasn't sure what he was supposed to do at first and when I asked him what he thought of the game he said "well it's ok but I don't really know how to play it."
Bring in big brother Isaac to help explain and pretty soon he was right into the game on his own!
The premise behind Poptropica is that the player has to travel among different islands and has quests to complete. Apparently there is an online version of the game - but we hadn't played that before so this was all new to Gabriel.
Once Gabriel figured out what he was supposed to do he had lots of fun with the game. He enjoyed the maze and the jumping games the most. And making the little people move...we liked to make them look like they were dancing...we love "the dance" ;)
The characters are cute and this is a game that doesn't have violence or anything bad in it so it is fun for the whole family. Even Elijah had fun watching Gabriel play.
All in all this was a fun game for Gabriel and one that we can keep and let Elijah play as well. It was a fairly easy game to figure out and although it doesn't have tons of different islands to travel to...it offered lots of fun playing time.
If you are interested in getting a copy for yourself it can be found on Amazon.com here or at Toys R Us here.
Disclosure: I was sent Poptropica to review for free in exchange for my honest review - all opinions are my own (or the opinions of my very honest 9 yr old) :) Thanks #UbiSoft for letting us participate in the review! #UbiPoptropica
