Island Smackdown – Haunted House vs. Great Pumpkin

The next competition in the Poptropica Island Smackdown brings together two of the special Halloween-themed quests. The first is the special mini-quest, Haunted House, which was released for Halloween in 2009. The second is Great Pumpkin Island, a full island adventure released for Halloween in 2010. Both were fun and exciting with plenty of adventure and Halloween spookiness.

But which one was better? It’s your turn to decide. Read the summaries and then vote below to determine which one will survive to the next round.

Haunted House

Haunted House was a creepy and cool addition to Poptropica in October 2009. It featured a short adventure through a very spooky Haunted House. Your mission was to find several items that were needed for a Halloween party. All of the items were located somewhere in the house and there were several challenging puzzles for each one. At the end, your reward was to attend a big Halloween party with lots of celebration and costumes.

Great Pumpkin

Poptropica continued the tradition of special quests for Halloween in 2010 with the release of Great Pumpkin Island, an entire island quest based on the Peanuts comic strip and TV special called, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. In this island, you help Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang attend a Halloween party and go trick-or-treating. And of course, you visit with Linus in the pumpkin patch to wait for the arrival of the Great Pumpkin himself.

Let’s Vote

As exciting as both Astro-Knights and Counterfeit Island are, only one can advance to the next round in the Poptropica Island Smackdown. Which one do you think it should be? Vote below to send one island to the next competition and the other one packing. Vote now because this poll will close soon!

    Myself: NO! That is absolutely ridiculous!
    Myself : Than what.
