Hey all, It’s Sporty Boa coming at you (finally) with a new blog post! As many of you know, the types of posts I love to do on the blog are crazy countdowns, so why not get back into the swing of things with a Top 5 countdown list of the best Poptropica island endings!
Part of the Journey is the End
A crucial part of any story is the ending. Endings tend to provoke thought or evoke a feeling, endings are what make the journey worthwhile, or a complete waste. Endings are-
Random Guy: *rolls eyes* We get it.
Right. Anyways Poptropica’s island endings are no exception. Although some contain epic final boss battles, this list will focus less on battles and more on the climax and overall endings to islands. Also, remember this is all solely my opinion, you guys are free to share yours in the comments below!
Alright, here’s my list of the top 5 best island endings!
Honorable Mention: BLACK LOT ISLAND
Few things seem more gratifying than seeing all your hard work pay off on the big screen! Black lot’s cinematic ending saw me becoming a successful, world-renowned filmmaker… In the world of Poptropica, I mean.
Number 5: COUNTERFEIT ISLAND
Counterfeit is one special island. The memorable characters, a creative, art-centered theme as well as the twist and turns of the plot unveil a spectacular storyline with everything ending how it should. Speaking of unveiling, how bout’ that secret art gallery tho?
Number 4: CRYPTIDS ISLAND
Perhaps my favorite Poptropica island of all-time, Cryptids Island raises the stakes BIG time. I’m talking Bigfoot big, as the sasquatch’s well being and oh- a MILLION BUCKS is on the line! Literally, the line of rope you have to detach from the villainous Gretchen Grimlock’s helicopter mid-flight! It’s a heart-pounding rescue, but as usual good defeats evil, and your Poptropican does the ultimate good of donating the cash prize to look out for the big guy.
Number 3: SURVIVAL ISLAND
Entering top 3 territory! Ok, this one may lean more on my personal side of things, but after 5 episodes of fighting for your life in the frigid and relentless wilderness, sticking it to MVB, and blowing that popsicle stand is soooo satisfying.
Number 2: MYSTERY TRAIN ISLAND
What can I say about this island’s ending? It’s practically perfect. The suspense, the thrill, and the challenge all made this island’s climax some of Poptropica’s best work. I never actually pictured myself chasing some crazy French lady though the Chicago World’s Fair, but then again, I never imagined saving Bigfoot either. Gotta love Poptropica!
And now finally…
Number 1: TIME TANGLED ISLAND
You might’ve guessed it would be close between my picks for #1 and #2, and you are most certainly correct. However, while many Poptropican island endings including Mystery train’s, give you the sense that everything going to be alright, Time Tangled Island actually shows you that everything is going to be alright! There’s quite a difference between sensing and knowing outcomes. Knowing that your efforts in fixing the past have resulted in a beautiful, cleaner and greener future is so worthwhile. (Also seeing that old man me is living a good life, the afro is still in style!)
That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed my list of the Top 5 Best Poptropica Island Endings, I’m interested to hear your feedback or even requests for my next countdown post here on the blog! I can’t see the future, but I hope you all have an awesome day! This Boa’s gotta bounce, see ya!
(P.S. Seriously, Time Tangled Island’s ending gives me hope for a better future, remember to always make eco-friendly choices and look for/invest in positive solutions!)
