Island Smackdown Round Two – Mythology vs. Steamworks

Round Two of the Poptropica Island Smackdown continues. We’re all voting to determine the best Poptropica Island of all time. So far in Round Two, we’ve seen Time Tangled run circles around Shark Tooth and Spy Island sneak past Nabooti. This time, we’ve got two heavyweights up against each other: Mythology Island and Steamworks Island.

Mythology Island was released in the Spring, hot on the heels of the release of the Percy Jackson movie. It featured an epic quest where you needed to recover five sacred items from Poptropica for none other than Zeus himself. Along the way, you met many of the ancient Greek gods and even had a final battle with Zeus to determine the fate of Poptropica.

Steamworks Island arrived this summer after much anticipation and build-up. It was an island with a deep mystery and no one around. Along the way, you teamed up with a lovable robot companion named Sprocket and set out to discover what happened to everyone who used to live there. This island featured one of the most difficult boss fights ever and a crazy amount of puzzles to solve along the way.

Both were great islands. But only one can win in this head-to-head battle to see who will advance to the Final Four. Which will it be? Steamworks or Mythology? You decide…

Which Island is Better?

  • Mythology (74%, 1,452 Votes)
  • Steamworks (27%, 522 Votes)

Total Voters: 1,961

  1. first comment

  2. 3rd. tough decision, which one do i pick???

  3. Sandy, the Ten year old girl

    Go mythology!

  4. Steamworks is WAY BETTER!

  5. I haven’t beaten each island, but I can honestly say that Mythology is WAY BETTER. But maybe that’s just because I’m into Greek Mythology…. =D

  6. Steamworks would make mythology island cry

  7. mythology rules!!!!!!!!!
    Steamworks is way hard.

  8. here is why I voted for Mythology island, First of all, I am FASCINATED with Greek mythology, and Mythology island was really fun to experience forging the River Styx, figuring out the puzzling labyrinth with the help of the golden thread, solving the Sphinx’s riddle, fighting the Hydra, exploring the hidden realms of Poseidon and Hades and of course, the thrilling and fun battle against the traitor Zeus! Also Steamworks is a bit fun, but there is WAY to many puzzles like that annoying thing where you had to channel the steam through those pipes, that was really just too hard! plus another reason Mythology was better is because there’s more too it, it’s just a much better quest overall. Plus there’s people to talk to! in steamworks you only get to talk to sprocket, and he only said weird things like, “why do humans have suck big heads?”

  9. sorry i meant SUCH big heads, not SUCK big heads, LOL

    p.s. Indiana Jones rocks

  10. Everyone go to avatar studios and type in “paperimp” where it asks for username to check out my awesome Indiana Jones costume!!! 🙂

  11. i duv mythology!! i cant beat steamworks so i hate it and mythology was here before steamworks so i voted for mythology!! THUMBS UP FOR TIME TANGLED ISLAND WINNING THE SMACKDOWN!! XD

  12. Esoteric Phoenix

    P.S- Esoteric Pheonix IS White Dragon Girl…

  13. STEAMWORKS IS THE BEST ISLAND EVER!

  14. Well, I voted for Steamworks! I mean, come on, anybody here watch ”Life After People” ? It’s creepy. I’m sure we all love creepy stuff! I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone… but, what the heck? That huge blobby one-eyed plant monster at the end was freakishly awesome!!! Go Steamworks!!!

  15. oh happy new year!Awesome costume indiana jones.I CAN’T WAIT FOR CRYPTIDS!!!!
    all that in one comment.

  16. Of course Mythology will win, what with such awesome books backing it up. Creepy, drooly plants have NOTHING on bestseller books with tons of fans. And Mythology has so many more cool outfit choices.

  17. Sandy, the Ten year old girl

    Mythology! But this may be a bit biased, because I LOVE Greek mythology.

    Yeah, I love the Percy Jackson and The Hero’s of Olympus series too, but Mythology Island is nothing like the books. Personally, worse if you ask me. I like the island, but if I had to like it based on the books, I’d give it a thumbs down. It’d just be better if the Greek gods were like in Rick Riordan’s books. It’d also be awesome if we could fight Ares!!! 😉

  19. White Dragon Girl

    Hey.

  20. White Dragon Girl

    ARG! My comments as Esoteric Phoenix aren’t showing! Oh well, here’s what I said:

    My comments as My WOW (Words Of Wisdom):
    In Mythology, you are able to kick Zeus’, uh, behind, complete the most difficult maze ever, and equip some of the most ferocious god battle-gear. It’s alot of fun, but I wish Hercules didn’t stay as a stone. I felt sorry for him. I also wanted to customize Medusa’s outfit, but that scene went too fast for me. Otherwise, for you guys, I can’t find any faults…
    In Steamworks, we had the aid of a robot who could talk, used mechanical gadgets to sneak in restricted buildings, and also rescue missing people (who didn’t return back to their homes after being released!!!). The robot would rather hang out with it’s friend than really talk to you, the missing people stayed where they were, and … well, IT WAS LONELY OVER THERE!!!
    But I really liked Steamworks along with Mythology. They both had awesome boss battles, (No One Should Complain About Them, If They’re Soooo Hard, GO ON ANOTHER WEB SITE WHERE THE GAME IS EASIER. Is That Any Fun?!?! And Besides, There’s Something Called YOUTUBE! Type “Poptropica, Steamworks” TONS of Walkthroughs!!! [Not trying to be mean or anything…] 🙂 )
    boss battles which were, of course, very hard, and also very enjoyable. To most of us in fact.
    I’m pretty sure one of these islands will be in the top two, if not the other…

  21. White Dragon Girl

    And also about Mythology…

    Yeah, I love the Percy Jackson and The Hero’s of Olympus series too, but Mythology Island is nothing like the books. Personally, worse if you ask me. I like the island, but if I had to like it based on the books, I’d give it a thumbs down. It’d just be better if the Greek gods were like in Rick Riordan’s books. It’d also be awesome if we could fight Ares!!! 😉

  22. Sandy, the Ten year old girl

    It’s be best to fight Ares from REAL Greek mythology. Just give him a little paper cut, then he’d be crying! And he’s the god of war.

  38. here is why I voted for Mythology island, First of all, I am FASCINATED with Greek mythology, and Mythology island was really fun to experience forging the River Styx, figuring out the puzzling labyrinth with the help of the golden thread, solving the Sphinx’s riddle, fighting the Hydra, exploring the hidden realms of Poseidon and Hades and of course, the thrilling and fun battle against the traitor Zeus!

  41. so do I! i went on that ride three times when I went to Disney land!

  42. White Dragon Girl

    I only watched the Crystal Skull one.

    The Creator is probably too busy with other things and ideas and the island. Maybe that’s why?
    If he has plenty of unused time, I’ll be real upset… 🙁

  43. White Dragon Girl

    Oops, I thought you guys were talking about movies. My bad!
    (I’m gonna see if there is such face…)
    :embarrassed: :blush:

  60. hey all, mythology is sooo much better than steam!
    p.s. click my name to see my character!! 🙂

  61. Ok, I think Mythology is gonna win, so maybe we can stop talking about which is better… ?

  62. I think they should make a winter island! And island about saving santa. His workshop got attacked by evil snowmen, and they’ve taken over! The hero (poptropican) has to stop the snowmen or else they’ll freeze everyone on Christmas! Full of snowball fights, evil snowmen who try to kill you with icicles and candy cane, sleigh rides with santa, and tons of costumes to customize! 🙂
    Well, It’d work next year, but I’m just thinking out loud here. It’d be fun though…
