Pop Island (DSiWare)

Game Profile

Discover a colorful universe where playing is always a pleasure with Pop Island for Nintendo DSi!

Colourful and quirky, Pop Island is an all-action capture the flag game where you pick which team to compete on before running, jumping and spinning your way around the island in an attempt to collect the priceless flags hidden throughout it.

Become a surfing penguin, a flying fish or a waterskiing crocodile as you go all out for victory – unlocking 12 more zany animals as you rack up points across eight different planets. You might even end up competing as a skateboarding mammoth!

Playing alone is plenty of fun, but the madcap action reaches a new level when your friends get involved. By sharing the demo of the game via DS Download Play, up to seven more people can join you for some head-to-head or cooperative action. With plenty of power-ups to grab during the fast paced gameplay, you’ll need to concentrate on capturing more than just the rival team’s flag to claim victory.

Take a trip to the fast and furious world of Pop Island, where every competition is downright crazy!

  • Compete to capture the flag in a colourful game world full of zany characters
  • Play against up to seven other players via DS Download Play
  • Unlock new characters and worlds as you progress and rack up points

Reminds me of Capture the Flag from Tribes 2... I couldn't possibly enjoy this game while thinking of that.

@Skrubber, I got this game and yes, download play works with the phat and lite too.

Great game, extremely addicting. Just seems like it's missing something for 5 bucks. Some WiFi play would've been really nice. The graphics and game play all is really good though.

I got this game 20 minutes ago and it is great! This should be a must download just for the multiplayer. Single player is still REALLY fun! No reason not to own this unique and amazing game-especially for only 500 points!!!!
