I thought that it would be a good time to give another game a try, since VMK is now gone. I wanted to see what Club Penguin was all about so I created a login and went exploring.
I started off in a place called "Ski Village" and was given a generic title, "Penguin57588097"
The one thing I noticed is the exits aren't clearly marked, so when I would want to just move out of the way of others, I often found myself entering an entirely different room, which wasn't my intention.
The first place I went was the evil looking castle, it took me a place called simply enough, "Mountain"
It's here you can race your fellow penguins for coins, which is the currency used in this game.
They also have the News which you click on ingame to hear the lastest game information.
I then ventured inside the room called, "Ski Lodge" (Not really creative with the names here. LOL) and found out I could play Connect Four with fellow players or go Ice Fishing for coins.
The Ski Lodge
Going back to the Ski Village, I next went over to the "Ski Shop"
Here you can shop for clothing by clicking on the catalog in the corner or the changing rooms.
Next up, The "Dock"
Here you can play a game called, "Hydro Hopper", you based hop over items in the water, the longer you do the more coins you earn.
I then went to a place called, "Town" and decided to check out "Knight Club"
There was a set of stairs going down in a speaker, so I waded into the "Boiler Room"
Here you can click on the filing cabinet and read old newspapers.
I also went into the cave, hoping to see a dragon, no luck.
Found him in the "Mine"
And also a game called, "Cart Surfing"
Hitting a dead end I headed back up to the "Knight Club" and went up the red carpeted stairs to the "Club Lounge"
Here you have a choice of two games to play, "Thin Ice" or "Astro Barriers"
Thin Ice you have to melt the ice to get to your target but you can't go over the same spot twice.
Astro Barrier you have limited amount of shots and you have to hit all your targets to move forward.
After exiting back out the Knight Club, I headed over to "Ye Old Coffee Shop" for a cup of joe.
If you click on the Gold Goblet, you get a pin!
Then I headed upstairs to "Ye Old Library".
Where I played a game of Mancala with my old friend, EvilQueen.
You can also read up on some Penguin stories here.
Hitting another dead end, I headed out of town to the "Snow Fort", I didn't find anything to do here but there was a nice little pop up about the clock tower and how Penguin Time is different than your time. Basically PST is what time the game is based in.
I then went to the "Arena". All I could see that you do here is throw snowballs at targets.
From there I went to the Plaza.
and entered the Pet Shop. Here is where you buy "Puffles", cute little furry animals, they also sell accessories for your pet but it appears you have to maintain the pet.
I then wandered into "The Stage" where you could buy various costumes and even read from a script. I thought this was very comical as you were acting out a penguin version of Shakespeare.
An example of commentary:
"A fish! A Fish! My puffle for a fish!"
Next door was the "Pizza Parlor" where you could play a game of "Pizzatron 3000".
I then headed for the Forest
Stay tuned tomorrow and see what other places I can explore!
