Island Inhabitant #2: Mountain Blizzard Review

I will leave it up to you for finding out what Club Penguin Island’s new area, Mt. Blizzard, features (and hides). I have been doing some exploring, including during the time while the update was out for only some Android players.

Here is what I have to say about this place:

The tubing game is only okay, in my opinion. This is because the controls are not as friendly as they could be. Think of the old Sled Racer app’s controls. They had left and right arrows to steer. You have a trackpad on CPI, which makes it harder to control the tube. That being said, I never was cut out for mobile platform gaming. I would love to play this tubing game on a computer (oh, how I miss you, arrow keys) or even a gaming controller. Still, it is a very fun game and a fantastic way to spend time on the island and make friends. The tubing competition could get hot for such a cold place. 😉

When finishing the tubing game, you are ranked with trophies based on your completion time. Here is an idea to make the game even more of an incentive to play: as rewards for getting fast times, you could earn XP points, exclusive items, and special tubes! Like this idea and you use Twitter? Retweet this tweet in support and hopefully, the CP team will take it into serious consideration…

The climbing wall game (where you jump on trampoline targets to climb up) is a little bit frustrating to play, for me. Again, arrow keys are where it’s at. I would prefer doing other things around Mt. Blizzard than this. However, if I come with friends, it is way more enjoyable. 😀

Mt. Blizzard, without a doubt, brings back the cold, snowy atmosphere of the old Club Penguin, making it a nostalgic place, filled with wonder. I think of this area like the upgraded, more vibrant, exciting combination of old CP’s Ski Village and Ski Hill. It has ski lifts penguins can actually ride (unlike the old island), loads of snow, enormous trees, tubes all around, and much more. Overall, Mt. Blizzard reminds me so much of the classic Club Penguin, with additional things to explore, such as a waterfall, a climb up the mountain, new tube tracks, more discreet hints lying here and there, and too much to say in sentence!! The winter wonderland magic is back.
