10 Websites and Games Like Club Penguin (Virtual Worlds)


Virtual Worlds - 10 Free Websites and Games Like Club Penguin

There are many websites and games like Club Penguin that offer a great experience for children, teenagers and even their parents.

While Club Penguin was one of the first really successful games in this space there has been a huge increase in the number of virtual worlds targeted at tweens over the past few years as companies quickly realise it is a huge (and growing market).

This flood of games into the market has produced some real great games like Club Penguin but also many poor game experiences and even some fantastic ones that have closed down (such as ToonTown Online and Star86) which can also be frustrating after having invested so much time in a game that you love.

If you are a fan of Club Penguin looking for another fun virtual world to play or a parent seeking information about other safe online games like Club Penguin for your child (or children) then this page will prove to be an invaluable resource.

I originally put this list together for a family friend and decided to share it here so other fans of the Club Penguin universe can find similar experiences that are both fun, friendly and safe. If you have any additional favourite games please don't hesitate to share them in the comment section at the end of the page.

1 - IMVU

An Online Game Like Club Penguin

IMVU focuses more on the creating content and customising your avatar in 3D, attracting a mostly female demographic that loves fashion and dress-up style gameplay. There is plenty of creativity involved in the game with players able to create their own designs from scratch or mix and match those created by others to design a unique look.

This content culture established around the creation and selling of products through the IMVU catalog. On the social side of things there is no shortage of options with users able to create their own public and private rooms, connect through user groups or participate in active community forums. The security around these features are fairly good and ensure private information is never given out through automatic chat filters to keep children safe while online.

If you want to try something more than just a social experience then IMVU promises an extra level of depth with the creation aspect giving you potentially endless hours of variety.

Lady Popular encourages you to stay curious as you explore the world of fashion to customise your own avatar, their home and then compete against other to prove you have more style.

In the game you'll follow your own avatar as they work a job, go shopping and much more in their journey to become the number one fashion star. While this is definitely the focus of the game there is still plenty of room to create your own experience.

4 - Fantage

A Colourful and Fun Virtual World Game Like Club Penguin

Fantage offers a fun and colourful game world for players to explore, play games and make friends. Designed for a similar audience as Club Penguin you'll find Fantage is a perfect alternative when you've spent enough time as a penguin.

Fantage aims to capture the younger audience of Club Penguin making it also perfectly suitable for those children who are just a little bit too young for Club Penguin. Children as young as 4 will have no problem operating the Fantage game interface and with very strict chat rules won't ever get into trouble.

With plenty of multiplayer mini games for you to earn stars (the in game currency) based on your performance there is always something to do in the world of Fantage. Taking these stars you'll be able to buy pets, new items, creatures to battle against each other and more.

With room for hundreds of buddies on your friends list, the ability to host parties and chat with other players the social and gaming elements definitely aren't lacking in the Fantage experience.

5 - Wizard101

Play As A Wizard In This Game Like Club Penguin

Wizard101 is a popular online MMORPG aimed at children that is published by KingsIsle Entertainment. Wizard101 (and its sister game, Pirate101) have quickly grown to be one of the most popular in the genre and features more active gameplay than what Club Penguin has to offer.

Players take control of an apprentice wizard in the world of Spiral and must gain levels, spells and equipment while completing quests and exploring the game world. Wizard101 also features premium items and benefits that are available through Wizard101 Crowns or a Wizard101 membership although a decent amount of gameplay is accessible for free.

Combat in Wizard101 is done entirely in a turn based card system that creates an easy and fair way for players to battle each other allowing it to appeal to casual gamers (and young kids). Players can also join forces and engage in battles of up to 4v4 which creates a social and friendship aspect to the game (chat options are limited to keep players safe though).

If Wizards aren't your idea of fun then KingIsle Entertainment also publishes a similar game in terms of gameplay but with pirates called Pirate101. This option will particularly appeal to those games who fell in love with ToonTown Online which closed in 2014.

6 - Animal Jam

A Free Online Game Like Club Penguin

Animal Jam is a virtual world for kids that has been growing rapidly over the past few years and after some hands on time with the game it is easy to tell why the game has been so successful.

Animal Jam uses real world examples of plants and animals in the game storyline to create a great virtual world filled with learning experiences and fact finding adventures. All of this educational content is sourced from National Geographic so you know that the information is top notch (and very interesting).

The game is accessible to children of all ages with gameplay involving chat, activities and mini games alone or with other players. Parent's need not worry because Animal Jam also has a powerful moderation and filter system (like most virtual worlds for kids) so safety is never a concern on Animal Jam and definitely one of the strongest in this space.

Like other games in this genre Animal Jam requires a membership (billed regularly) to experience everything on offer. Membership offers member only items, pets, regular gifts and more. However, Animal Jam does provide a a great chunk of content to free members unlike other similar games which can prove quite restrictive without opening up your wallet.

7 - OurWorld

A Fun And Exciting Game Like Club Penguin

OurWorld is a virtual world that focuses on offering tweens and teenagers a safe but very fun game world to explore. It's one of the more in depth and difficulty games to grasp on the list making it more appropriate for children in the tween bracket that have outgrown other options.

The game world of OurWorld is split into a number of locations that each have their own unique theme that you can use to meet new people.

The game has a strong focus on safety like the various other games here to ensure its both fun and safe at all times.

8 - Fishao

Play This Fish Adventure Game Like Club Penguin

Fishao is another virtual universe targeted at children that offers plenty of exploration, adventure and fun. In Fishao you'll complete quests, solve mysteries, play mini-games and explore the various waters and fish that the game has to offer.

The design of the game is extremely simple to ensure that no age is left out in the cold although teenagers might find the gameplay a little too easy to be engaging (they should consider Wizard101 instead).

Fishao! also focuses heavily on socialising with other players and offers tonnes of customisation options so that you can create your own unique little character to explore the various game areas.

Best of all Fishao ensures that a large amount of content can be explored on a free to play budget, so if you are looking for a game like Club Penguin that doesn't make membership a complete must have there is nothing holding you back.

9 - Habbo Hotel

Habbo Hotel (or Habbo) is a social based virtual world directed at a teenage audience. Habbo has over 220 million registered avatars over 150 countries so there is no shortage of people to meet.

Habbo Hotel is split into a hotel and website section; The hotel section is where all social activities and communication takes place. While the website aspect has a community section which features popular pages, groups, account balance, friends and recommended chat (hotel) rooms to visit.

Habbo Hotel has gone through rapid changes over the past few years to include many new features including user pages, groups, discussion forums and a toolbar feature. Habbo Hotel is now not only a virtual hangout but a social networking website.

More recently the game has expanded into the iOS market, making it one of the few iOS games like Club Penguin allowing children to play away from the computer.

10 - Club Cooee

Make Your Own Avatar In This Game Like Club Penguin

Club Cooee is an online adventure similar to Club Penguin with room based chat, mini games and plenty of avatar customisation to enjoy. It also targets a similar age demographic although on the slightly older end of the scale..

Creating an account on Club Cooee is free and easy, within seconds you'll be creating your own avatar and customising its features from head to toe. This is quite possibly the best attraction to Club Cooee over Club Penguin which in comparison has fairly minimal penguin customisation.

After you customise your own character you will be able to meet other children, play games, buy clothing and party at the disco. The game has plenty of locations to visit with more constantly being added, along with all the usual events you expect to see in a social driven game.

Just like Club Penguin players will earn money for taking part in activities and mini-games which can be spent on new clothing and decorations for your own club so fans of Club Penguin will have no problem quickly adjusting to the new scene.

diamonddogrules on October 25, 2015:

at least you can do something in animal jam if your a non member, also, you are not allowed to go in game until the email is verified, unlike club penguin, that says "OH, you haven't activated your EMAIL! WELLL, you can go and stare at your empty penguin, AND NOT EVEN GO TO THE ACTUAL CLUB PENGUIN WORLD, until you've activated your email, hows that? good hmm? just gonna leave you to stare at your penguin, enjoy!" and in AJ "we are sorry to say that because LAWS ARE LAWS you have to activate your email, but dont worry, we have sent you a link, just give it a quick check, and click the activate tab! easy! and then you can play!" like C'MON! you can see a difference SURELY? and my final point is, as I said, you cant do much as a non member on club penguin, unlike animal jam you can actual SAVE UP MONEY AND BUY STUFF, and also animal jam actually has PROPER GAMES! club penguin has like 3 games....... no joke, well, the time I played it there was this strange fishing game, some REALLY weird puffle game and that was that, :I but animal jam has loads of games! theres a claw machine, a horse racing game and wayyyy more! just another excuse for disney to take money from people so they can have MEMBERSHIP!!!! (which is REALLY expensive by the way,) to make movies like FROZEN??? c'mon, disney, make more movies with some real action in them like beauty and the beast or something.... sheesh :I
