Multiplayer games in Poptropica have been a thing for a really long time, but have started to become less and less popular with the decreasing amount of people going to common rooms, sadly. Regardless of that, some are pretty fun, so that’s what I’m doing today; I’m counting down each and one from my personal favorite to my least favorite.
Keep in mind that I tried to keep this post as optimistic as possible, and if you don’t agree with the way the mini-games are arranged, don’t worry; it’s just my silly opinion, and I’d love to hear yours! So, with that said, let’s get started with the countdown!
If you’ve been in a multiverse room with me before for a couple of times, you probably how much I love this game, because it’s the first question I ask when being in a common room. I don’t like to brag, but I’m awesome at it (even though it’s super easy, and most of the time, the opponent doesn’t know how to play the game). Anyway, it’s pretty fun, and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants their battle ranking to increase.
Over here, your goal is to make as many star-linked boxes as possible, and faster than your opponent. Whoever ends up with the least star-linked boxes loses, and while I’m definitely not the best at this game, I still find it pretty interesting! And even though it’s been a thing for years now, I only got interested in it like a month ago (what a shame).
Let’s just say that I’m terrible at this game, but that doesn’t stop me from loving it! Sure, it’s hard but it’s also great fun. The concept is pretty simple alright; all you have to do is throw the basketball into the net, and whoever scores five times is the winner! But the basket also moves each time someone scores a point, so that’s quite a challenge. (at least for me)
I’m all for Sky Dive — it’s pretty much the best way to increase your battle ranking if you’re too lazy to play some other more challenging minigame. It’s easy, it’s quick, and you can play it countless times and get aggressive with your opponent until you get bored, which is basically the same problem, since you get pretty bored after a while of playing it.
I really like Pathwise. It’s just the fifth favorite in this list just because I don’t like it as much as the other ones. It’s really simple and really not-that-hard, and you’ll get the hang of it after playing it for less than 3 times. Basically, you have to find a way to make a path to get to the other side before your opponent does. It’s pretty easy, once you read some tips about it. 😉
‘Balloons’ is nice, it’s a good game. But I never seem to get it. I mean, I know what you’re supposed to do, but I never seem to stand a chance against my opponent (I’m not a sore loser please believe me). But, I can’t really hate it, since it’s quite creative. A great minigame, just not my type.
On Soupwords, you have to find as many words before time runs by clicking each letter, and the person with the most points wins at the end.
I don’t like this one. Why you might ask? Well, I don’t hate it (I really don’t hate any of these, except one…), but I’d rather play it by myself than a real opponent, to be honest. It’s not bad, but it’s not that interesting like some other minigames like Pathwise and Star Link. And while I personally don’t like Soupwords, I can understand why a lot of people do.
If you’re like me, you probably hate Sudoku as much as I do. It’s not the minigame itself — it’s the puzzle as a whole, but yes, playing it with another person is twice as painful, but a little less boring.
I’ve always wanted to like Sudoku (my parents love it), but I’d always find myself skipping them and doing the crosswords instead. So, it’s not really the Poptropica version of it (kinda), but my distaste for Sudoku at a whole.
((BTW I’m aware that there’s a singleplayer version of the game in Poptropica, but I want to keep this list multiplayer-game only.))
