Have a Happy Poptropica Thanksgiving!

Yep, getting ready for holiday break (and Thanksgiving)? Well, here’s a post that will make you say “I just had a wonderful Poptropica Update Thanksgiving” as this post has a sprinkle of BTS (Behind the Scenes)!

TBT with Poptropica

Poptropica’s Cryptids is in for a Throwback Tuesday (or Thursday for most)! It seems like the Creators have an idea for a TBT: The cryptids in kindergarten.

Wow, Chupacabra didn’t like to share. Anyways, to the next part.

A delay with Arabian Nights Island

I recently was on Poptropica’s Twitter and I saw this:

Sorry members, but Arabian Nights Island (Episode 2) isn’t going to be an early access today. Instead, it’s pushed to two more weeks, releasing for members on December 11th and releasing for everyone on December 30th. Sorry for the sad news, members! 😦

Arabian Nights Episode Two info (CONTAINS SPOILERS!)

On the Arabian Nights Tour page, info about the second episode is now out! The episode is called Lair of Thieves.

Here is the synopsis:

In the den of the forty thieves, danger lurks around every corner. To outwit the most dangerous thieves in the desert, you’ll need a little help evening the odds – and you’ll find it in the form of an incredible magic power!

Wow, seems cool! So much action; I can’t wait to play it!

Poptropica Comics has come to an end

Yes, so subtitle says it all. Sadly, the Poptropica Comics for this year have come to an end (for 2014 at least), but don’t worry, you can read all of this year’s comics in the Daily Pop on Poptropica. Aaaaaaand… The Poptropica Creators also said that Oliver and Jorge will be back for more adventures in 2015. 🙂

Some BTS of the DP

Speaking of the Daily Pop, I found some cool BTS sneak peeps that hint to upcoming episodes for Arabian Nights, Poptropicon, and even the supposed new island, Galactic Hot Dogs Island.

Two ads

Yep, and once again, there are new ads that just popped on Poptropica:

A Hot Wheels ad for guys,

And a Monster High ad for girls.

“This song shrunk me”

Jeff Heim, the composer of Poptropica Music, tweeted the song Avenue A (for Shrink Ray Island) last Friday

Hoped you enjoyed this post! Have a happy Poptropica Thanksgiving!

Oh, just Twittering around

Hey everyone! The Creators recently tweeted another behind-the-scenes picture relating to Galactic Hot Dogs. The Creators claim that this blueprint for the GHD crew’s Neon Wiener spaceship is “VERY, VERY behind the scenes.”

Do we have a new island rising up (totally not a reference to Poptropolis)? The Tweet links to this video trailer for Galactic Hot Dogs.

Yep, getting the feel of a new island coming! The Creators have mentioned that GHD may become an island in the future!

There is another behind the scenes image on Twitter, but this doesn’t reveal as much.

Hey, got to admit, it’s still pretty cool. 😉

The Creators have been twittering around lately, with some Poptropica related Instagram posts lately, along with Poptropica-In-School moments, Poptropica related Tumblr posts, and more. Keep an eye out for them on Twitter!

Mocktropica Bonus Quest

Hey, it’s a Bonus Quest Guide from me, Nameless UnDEFiNed, so let me know if there’s anything I should add, or any bugs I should add a warning for 😉

After you beat Mocktropica Island (Guide HERE), it’s time for the Bonus Quest. If you need help, keep on reading.     Go into HQ, and enter the basement.  Talk to Billy, then into Auto Mode you go. You’ll be told there’s a rogue programmer to chase. Click on the computer you were using as an Island Editor.

1

Now talk to Bucket Bot, click on the giant computer screen to the right, and follow Bucket Bot into the Arena.

You’ll start with 99.999 Mega Coins, and then you click to start. All you have to do is beat the MFB. Strangely enough, it’s a LOT easier now, than it was before… Just try not to let your energy run out COMPLETELY. CAUTION: Game may freeze at flashing lights. End of Round 1, Match 2. If this happens, you have to log in again. 

NOTE: When you play in the final round, you can still win even if you lose the first round. If you win the first, but lose the second, you go to a “Final Round” and if you win that, you still win 😉 If you lose the first, but win the second, and then win the “Final Round” you’ll win!

After you beat Colonel Hertz, you will go into Automatic, and once you return to Poptropica, some more Automatic 😉 😛 Now, get your Bucket Bot costume! You beat the Bonus Quest!

More Pictures Coming Soon 😉

A Poptropica New Year

This post is about Poptropica and the New Year that is coming 😛 Random post, but whatever 😆

In the past year, Poptropica has taken away an Island, and given it back supposedly “Better”. Well Poptropolis Games 2013 is kind of better, but the Volleyball is glitchy… Poptropica has also grown into something bigger… With apps, and Islands, bigger and louder, and really late Bonus Quests, Poptropica has grown into something not all of us original Poptropican’s like….

Hard Luck on VHI

Click on that picture for full size. And I can’t really make my own video because I’m not allowed to upload to YouTube right now (Thanks Mom!), but I found one, thank you Poptropica Creators!

Listen to that music! Wowzers, I love it. The game has lots of glitches, including the Mancala glitch, where you have to switch tabs for the turn so it won’t freeze…  Now, onto the Islands.

There have been 36 Poptropica Islands released in 2013. How many will be released in 2014? I hope more. I started calling this new version of Poptropica, “The Decision”. Because, new players have to decide whether they like this way or not. Older players even have to as well, and I don’t like it. You should be able to make MORE decisions. I’ve heard people around the blogging world complaining, and I thought that maybe we should get the decision between the new and old version of Poptropica. Whether “Bigger and Louder”, or “Small and Quiet”, I’d like to choose! How about you?? Do you want a choice?

I helped HPuterpop find out somethings in the Trash Can of Mocktropica… Why always the garbage? Why can’t we look through something else?!?! Oh well, the Poptropica Universe may never know 😛 Anyways, I was looking through the trash can, and I sorted out all of the pictures that were there, at least the ones that looked important. Here’s the pic:

The trash can previews

Monster Carnival!?!?! NOPE.

NOPE!!??!?!?!?!? WHAT DO THEY MEAN BY “NOPE”?!?!? I’ve been waiting on this Island since I started playing Poptropica! Grrrrrr, stinking Creators…

I like the Main Island Character Ideas though… Maybe we were GOING to send a Hot Dog into space, or battle an evil plant with lightning bolts, or keep a beaver from taking all of the wood on “Woodya Wanna” Island… But thankfully the Creators came up with better ideas 😛 And thank you, Tough Spider, for pointing out that since the piece of paper is in the trash can with NOPE written on it, maybe the NOPE part was what’s been thrown out… If that makes sense to you others 😛

Now, you see, I’m not the kind to make long posts, so I’ll have to make another with more things I’ve found 😛 Maybe not…

So, let me say one more thing: Mocktropica was MADE for this glitch 😉

Roald Dahl Day and an Island as a Gift

I’m always the last to know about things.  Like how Roald Dahl day was yesterday.  I didn’t know that until I read the Creators’ post about Roald Dahl.

In their post about this “man behind classic stories”, the Creators announced what the next island was going to be.  I think we all know what that island is going to be.  After all, that’s all BT’s been talking about for a long time. 😉

Happy Roald Dahl day!

Today is Roald Dahl Day — the birthday of one of the greatest storytellers of all time! Roald Dahl was the man behind classic stories like James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and a whole lot more, including our favorite, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

In fact, we love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so much that we’ve decided to make a whole Island out of it! Consider this our Roald Dahl Day gift to you.

We’ll have a lot more to tell you about our latest and greatest project in the weeks to come!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Well, they said that this island was their greatest project, so, hopefully, that means that this is going to be one awesome island!  I hope we find out more soon!

News out of this world and out of their minds!

First off, Lunar Colony is now available to everyone! 😀

That’s right: Lunar Colony is now available for all to play. Don’t waste your time sitting around reading blog posts! Visit Poptropica now to play Lunar Colony!

Secondly, lately, everywhere I look, I get that reminder that HEY, we’re gonna go into these villain’s minds and possibly be trapped by their dreams!

They’re practically everywhere!

(SERIOUSLY?!)

My reaction when I saw these:

Oh, I just found one more…

Hold on, hold on, hold on a second! Let’s zoom that one out.

*record scratch*

A DS GAME?!

😮 😮 😮

The set release date for the game is November 6th, 2012! *squee!!!*

This is bringing Poptropica to a whole new level. You see, I think Club Penguin used to be the only kid’s online virtual world with a DS game companion (lemme know if there are any others…) Not anymore! Poptropica’s getting some publicity. I mean, it already has with its toys and game cards and kids meals laying around, but still!

Here’s what the promotional stuff says:

The Poptropica museum is in ruins and needs your help! Explore three amazing
islands and find missing artifacts to help restore the museum to its former
glory. Meet interesting characters, collect artifacts, solve puzzles and play
mini games in the ultimate on-the-go Poptropica experience!! Looking to stand out in a crowd ? Customize the look of your avatar with new clothes, hats, hairstyles and more and show off your own unique Poptropica style!

  • Explore an amazing world – Run and jump through three amazing Poptropica islands.
  • Create a character all your own! – Customize the look of your avatar with new clothes, hats, hair styles and more!
  • Build a collection like no other – Find gadgets and items as you progress in the game and complete your quests.
  • Mini game challenges – Complete the quests and unlock a host of minigames that provide more challenges and variety.

I hope that one of the clothing options is my precious star…

And also, here are a couple of pictures…

Poptropica Adventures

blink blink* *looks closer at characters* Umm…

*crickets*

Erm.. Those are different looking Poptropicans… but it’s still a video game!!

It’s kinda obvious what two of the three Islands will be from these pics: Mythology and Astro-Knights. But it’s not so obvious what the third will be. The cover isn’t much help. Although the cover has Zeus, the fire planet knight, and the Binary Bard *glares*… both Sir Rebral and that popular spy guy are on it as well. Is it Super Power or Spy??????

Non-members, enjoy Lunar Colony! Meanwhile, nonmembers and members alike have to wait to get information on what’s coming up next, whether it’s the horrid nightmare of 4 (announced) returning villains in 30th island Super Villain Island, the sweet, pure imagination of a plausible Wonka quest, or the interactive, portable experience of Poptropica Adventures. My oh my, a lot is happening!

BT out!

The First Ten Astronauts

As you probably know, Lunar Colony was released this past Thursday.  It was pretty good in my opinion.  Not the absolute best ever, but a lot better than some of the more recent islands.

Anyway, since you probably don’t care what I thought about it I’ll just move on with the post.  Just like they always do, the Creators have released a list of the first ten people to finish Lunar Colony.  And, just like always, I’m not on the list…

Congratulations to the first 10 finishers of Lunar Colony!

Poptropica Members are unlocking the secrets of the cosmos in Lunar Colony. These 10 Poptropicans were the first to do it.

1. Gentle Starfish
2. Scary Star
3. Blue Scorpion
4. Scary Typhoon
5. Shaky Typhoon
6. Magic Fish

 

7. Friendly Cheetah
8. Silver Ninja
9. Shoeless Eagle
10. Zippy Dragon 

Congratulations to you all!

BINARY BARD

I thought that I was going to make it this time.  I thought that I was going to be one of the first ten finishers.  Everything was going great…until I got stuck after the first few minutes of playing it.  And then when I finally got un-stuck, I got re-stuck a few seconds after.  I don’t know what it was about that island, I just could not do it.  And the thing is, if you do a few things out of order then your basically just going to sit there confused about what to do next.  So, yeah, I ended up having to look up a guide to it.  I know, pretty pathetic.  Oh, well, there’s always the next island…

Gold Wimpy Extras

Yeah, I know that’s a horrible title, but you can’t be perfect every time.

So, the Creators have done two new posts.  The first one is basically making fun of non-members, cause they can’t play Poptropolis Games yet.  Somehow, that’s not that shocking that the Creators would do a post like that.

Going for the gold

The good thing about the Poptropolis Games is that you don’t need to place first in every event in order to win the gold medallion. The winner of the Games is the one with the best overall performance, which means you can have a few clunkers and still come out on top.

It’s a good thing, too! Some of these events are tough. I laid an egg on the pole vault the last time I played.

Some of you may have already won the gold medallion, but has anybody out there placed first in every single event? That’s a feat we’d love to see!

Remember, Poptropolis Games is open to Members now. It will be available for everyone to play on June 14.

The second post is about the info-page for Wimpy Boardwalk and the extras that the Bearators were to lazy to put on the info-page right away.

Wimpy Boardwalk extras now available!

We’re making a splash to start the summer. Now, when you visit the Wimpy Boardwalk info page, you can download a new desktop wallpaper and printable poster!

Wimpy Boardwalk is coming soon to Poptropica. Keep reading our blog for the latest news!

Well, that’s about it for now.

Oh, and sorry about posting two times in a row.  I hope that it’s not a federal crime or anything.
