PopTag! Is a 2-D arcade-style multiplayer game where players navigate a variety of multi-colored maps and battle each other, or NPCs (non-playable characters), with water-based weapons, such as water balloons, in a variety of game modes. PopTag! Offers fast-paced game play in player-versus-player modes, or cooperative modes where gamers can join together to take on unique and deadly boss monsters and their minions. A �co-play� function is also available to users, allowing two players to play using a single keyboard. Players defeat their opponents in PopTag! by strategically setting water balloons anywhere on the game�s maps, blasting and trapping them in a bubble. A player may escape the bubble by using special items or get help from a teammate. If the trapped player does not escape after a certain amount of time, they are out of the game. Players earn experience points for each victory and level up based on the amount of experience points they accumulate. PopTag! is located in the world of Boom Hill and contains a variety of maps, including frosty wonderlands, sandy deserts and dense forests. Players can select from an array of unique characters, each of whom has special skills, appearances and personalities. In addition to being free-to-play, the game is supported with thousands of purchasable items and character customization pieces, as well as an in-game messenger and other systems that help foster community interaction. It also includes a �sweetie� system that allows players to get married in-game. Nexon plans to release regular content updates that will introduce new maps, gameplay modes, items and quests to help keep the watery adventures flowing for the players.

The game starts off with a set of tutorial quests that get the player familiar with the game. It introduces the Quickplay modes, a Pop Shop which offers many different items for use in game, and the Monster and PVP modes. Quickplay is a match against computer-controlled opponents, which can be set to any difficulty the player is comfortable with and is a nice way to get acquainted with the nine differently themed maps. The nine maps include: forest, ice, pirate, cookie, village, factory,... Read Review
