24 Carrot Island: Beta Carrotene Review

I cannot give enough praise to the Creators for this new update. Even being in a beta test phase right now, it is amazing enough for a complete release. The visual and audio aspects are both stunning and really add something to the experience of playing Poptropica. The following is a review and description of each new feature, followed by a video I took of the highlights from both the music and sound effects, so if you haven’t had a chance to experience the Beta Carrotene update to 24 Carrot Island, make sure to check out the video and see what it has to offer.

Larger Screen
While Poptropica might not be in full-fledged HD this larger screen sure comes close. It may just be because of the game screen being nearly full screen but it feels like an HD experience. The images are crisper and the way your character interacts with the back ground makes it feel like you are playing an entirely new game.

Improved Menu

The improved menu offers an options section where you can turn the music and sound effects volumes up and down along with editing the dialog speed. There is also just a plain old mute button for if you want to play without the music and sound (which wouldn’t be a good idea). The new upgrade to the already established functions like Items and Friends also is a great step forward for Poptropica. You can see the new features in action in the video below. I highly suggest you watch the new items inventory in action.

Sound Track
I cannot begin to describe how amazing the sound track is. The music while piloting Dr. Hare’s Rabbot and once you get back to Main Street is astounding. The sound effects go above and beyond what would be expected. You can check out the amazingness that is the new sound track in the video below.

Final Rating
Yes, there are some glitches, your character may go the wrong direction at some point, it may freeze once or twice, but nothing that severely effects the game play.
8.5/10   B+
