    Single player's a good challenge, but it's all about the multiplayer. And when you get eight players competing for flags the game just gets crazy.
  2. Five dollars for a game you can share and play with up to eight friends is a small price to pay, especially when it's this fun!
  3. Despite Pop Island's way too simplistic design, it oozes charm and is wonderfully silly fun.
  4. Not only does the game look and sound amazing for a DSiWare release, but it's so simple to pick up and play that you'll find yourself diving in and having fun in almost no time.

    A bit boring if you're on your own, but add some friends to the mix and this is a chuckle. [May 2010, p.91]

    Pop Island is rather like a multiplayer battle-only version of Mario Kart, but with crazy animal characters instead!
  7. 75
    Pop Island is a very simple game that revolves entirely around Capture The Flag. Because the game can be shared with seven other friends, that makes it a wonderful multiplayer-game. The matches are short, but pretty intense and chaotic. Odenis Studios has not forgotten those who fly solo, and also offers them a nice experience for only 500 DSi Points.
