Winning Round ‘Em Up in Wild West Island

The sneak preview for Poptropica Wild West Island is here and when you go to visit the island, you’ll get to play a new mini-game called Round ‘Em Up. The object of the game is to use your rope lasso to get three cattle and take them back to your ranch pen in two and a half minutes. If you do it, you win a prize. The prize changes every two days, so you can keep coming back over the next two weeks to win all seven prizes.

This game uses the new overhead view that we saw in Cryptids Island when you drove the Jeep around in Puerto Rico in search of the Chupacabra. The controls work pretty much the same but with a few changes. You can ride your horse forwards or backwards, and clicking the mouse button will cycle your horse through a few different speeds when it’s riding forwards. You can use the space bar to start twirling the lasso and then press it again to throw it. On the second press, the lasso will go in whatever direction it is pointing. If it hits a steer, you’ll rope it!

After you rope the steer, ride towards it to stay close. If the steer gets too far away, the lasso breaks and you have to start over. After a few seconds, the steer will stop resisting you and then it will follow you back to the ranch pen.

Here’s a walkthrough video for the Round ‘Em Up game that shows you exactly how to do it.

The Prizes

The Wild West Hero outfit for Members only.

There are seven different prizes that you can win over the next fourteen days. Each prize will be available for two days, so you need to keep coming back to play to win them all. Members can also get a special costume the first time they win: the Wild West Hero. Here’s a look at all of the different prizes available for playing the Round ‘Em Up game on Wild West Island.

  1. 1st to comment

  2. I keep earning it but I can’t find my prize!

  3. 2nd.

  4. This is weird. Is this a Mexican island or a Western one. Cuz what’s up with the sombrero? And where do you find them? I mean, I won them, but I checked in my backpack, and they were not there.

  5. You can also get the cow stuck somewhere, pull him out, and ta-da! Meek as a kitten and thrice less cute. When you’ve mastered it you can go for the biggest ones. There are some huge ones out there! And another thing, when you’ve led one into the ranch, to save time just jump the fence.
    3rd comment! 😀

  21. Hello everyone!
    Now for the update on news:
    Many of you poptropicans may have already noticed, but the Island Smackdown is still cheering and congratulating the famous and popular Spy Island.
    #1: In the first place, we have Spy Island in the lead, with 1,134 votes and a percentage of 65%.
    #2: In the second place, we have Time Tangled Island, with a total voter of 617 and a percentage of 35%, but good job Time Tangled! You are still a really great island!
    Besides the Smackdown, we have a sudden rumor of a new island coming out.
    #1: The mysterious island’s name will be Wild West Island. So, speaking of the wild west, many of you will instantly think of cowboys and cowgirls, incluuding ranches, horses, cows and other cattles that ranchers breed. And, you were right. On the Poptropica Map, an island with the words “Sneak Preview” is between Nabooti and Mythology. So, this island isn’t a rumor. This is REAL.
    OK Poptropicans, we still have more! Well, the Poptropica Creators must have thought about how small the Poptropica Store is, so…
    #1: The newest costume available in the store is a fabulous but simple one, called the “Disco King” if your poptropican is a boy. Don’t worry, girls. For you, there will be one called “Disco Queen”.
    #2: The Creators must have done a pretty decent job on coming up with the “Bigfoot Costume”, or whatever it’s called, because I have seem lots of people wearing and showing off with a fake Bigfoot on their heads. That’s the whole costume, really, though, except for a T-shirt and black pants. So, I’m not saying that the T-shirt and the black pants are decent, but mainly because of the awesome, fantastic Bigfoot hat!

    Well, that’s the latest report for The Weekly Surprise: White Sword the News Reporter. Thanks for listening and reading, have a wonderful, happy and fabulous Chinese New Year on Jan. 3rd!
    Wait til next week…
    🙂 There’ll be more!

  22. Something good and weird happened to me.
    See, I was checking out the prizes. You know the members only costume. (I’m not a member)
    I found out the the “costomize” button was actually clickable! I got member clothes even though I wasn’t a member.
    But it didn’t work the 2nd time I tried. Weird and cool, huh?
    :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  23. told u the next island was wild west in the cryptids island video hahaha and probally none of u listened 🙁

  24. I got 2 costumes and i can’t find them!!! Why?

  25. I love this new island it seems very COOL!! I love getting ( THE PRIZES) ………. : )… LOL OMG..

    I hope u guy’s like the new island too!!!!!!! 🙂

  26. sorry but i dont

  27. Golden feather: that’s because it’s in the “store items” icon. you probably searched the “items” icon instead.

  28. All right,
    Let’s hear for our interview with the Weekly Surprise Intersiewer White Star!
    Hello White Star! Anything new for us to hear?
    WS: Why of course.
    #1:OK then! I want to know about the Island Smackdown, first thing of all.
    WS: Well, first thing is that Mythology is winning! With a total vote of 666 votes, Mythology has a percentage of 70%.
    #2: Oh! That’s great. Why is it winning?
    WS: Well, of course, Mythology Island is an awesome one!
    #3: *roll eyes* Oh, well, OK I get it White Sword, but, is something particularly awesome that makes it awesome?
    WS: Well, it allows you to actually meet some of the greatest gods and goddesses in the world.
    #4: Can you name some of them?
    WS: Sure! Athena is my favourite, Artemis, Aphrodite, Apollo, Hestia, Hermes, Ares, and, of course, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon.
    #5: All right, then! What about the also very popular Counterfeit?
    WS: Oh yes. Counterfeit is one of the most popular islands on Poptropica, our world. With a percentage of 30%, it has a total vote of 288. I know exactly why it is not winning, and almost failing to win. That is because, at least this is what I think, Mythology has a more exciting background and story. Of course, thieves are all around us. But, really, no poptropican can ever see a god or goddess that often.
    #6: All right then! Thank you very much, Star.

    Well, this concludes our interview with the Weekly Surprise! Thank you for listening and reading, and happy Chinese New Year today! The people in China are already celebrating today! 新年快乐! (Happy New Year!)

  33. Cup of Black Juice: Go to 24 Carrot Island and go to the King Carrot Diner. Go to where the juice machine is and fill your cup up with ONLY white juice. Drink it. While you are drinking, press Shift, Ctrl, S. Everything will stop and your skin will change color. But, your mouse will become all swirly and what not. Click on the X tab to close your screen. Do not save. Login to your person and you should be holding a cup with black juice in it. (FYI: If your skin color changed and you didn’t like what it changed to, go to Early Poptropica and go to Poptropica Towers. Then, go to the man who is selling balloons. Find the color of balloon you like. Your skin color will change to that.)

  34. Unknown no they will not be on next week

  35. Hello everyone. Today is Feb. 13th, 2011. Welcome to the Weekly Surprise: News Report. Today we will have a report with News Reporter White Star!
    Today’s subject will be: El Mustachio Grande

    #1: Hello White Star.
    WS: Hello White Sword. What would you like to ask about Grande?
    #2: Well, I do have something to ask. First of all, who is El Mustachio Grande?
    WS: That’s an interesting question. Grande is the main villain of the suddenly-popped up Wild West Island. In the paragraph describing Wild West Island, it said that a dark shadow was lurking around on Wild West. That dark “shadow” is El Mustachio Grande.
    #3: That’s some nice informations, Star. Do you know what he looks like?
    WS: Well, the Poptropica Creators printed a very blurry picture of Grande, so nobody knows for sure what he’ll look like. The Weekly Surprise predict that he has a big mustache, and a some how “evil” pair of eyes.
    #4: Oh! Well, what do you think his proffesion is?
    WS: According to our prediction, Grande is most likely to be a cowboy or a rancher. Except, no matter what he is, we know for sure that he will be evil.
    #5: Well that’s some shuddering news. My last and most important question is, do you think Grande will become a popular villain, like, for example, the popular Dr. Hare on 24 Carrots Island, Black Widow on Counterfeit Island, Betty Jetty, or Zeus?
    WS: We must know this: it is only after an island comes out that we know for sure what it will be like. Therefore I am sorry to say that I don’t know the answer.
    #6: Thank you very much for the fantastic info, Star and have a good day. Happy Valentines Day!
    WS: Wish you a happy Valentine too!

    OK well this concludes our report with Star.
