Since its birth back in the summer of 2008, the PHB has, as of today, reached its biggest milestone yet: ten million hits (and it only took five years)! That means this blog has been viewed 10,000,000 times, and that comes from you guys, our lovely readers - so thank you very much for your support!
In celebration of this milestone, I’ve prepared a little game featuring 10 mini puzzles of small snapshots from various areas in Poptropica. Your task is to guess where in Poptropica they were taken!
Poptropolis Games won’t be out of early access until this Thursday, December 5th, but until then, CapriSun’s Roarin’ Waters is here to deliver two athletic challenges in a Kids vs. Pros Playground Throwdown! You can find this ad on Main Streets such as the one on Virus Hunter Island.
To your right is Gabby Douglas the gymnast, who you must match in three rounds consisting of a flip, double flip, then a triple flip. All you have to do is watch her tricks, then when it’s your turn, click when the red button tells you to, and you’ll do a flip! The prizes are the Super Flip Power and Gymnast Outfit.
To your left is WWE wrestler John Cena, who will challenge you to tug-of-war. Just click as fast as you can to pull the rope closer to your side. When you win, you’ll get the Flex Power and In-Ring Gear.
In other news, PHB reader Silver Wolf mentioned to us that the Mocktropica Island desktop wallpaper contains a to-do list in the corner that includes “Balloon Boy Rescue Island”!
Could this mean that the island being created in Mocktropica has to do with the one who floated away on Counterfeit Island, the running gag we’ve seen occasional glimpses of ever since? Hmm…
Happy Thanksgiving! Whether you’re celebrating with turkey or not, this still applies: Poptropica’s first ever iOS game, Forgotten Islands, is now on sale in the App Store for $2.99 (a saving of two dollars)! This discount ends on (Black) Friday, so get it quick!
Along with hours of gameplay, a promise of no in-app purchases, and the recently added Halloween costume pack, it now comes with a new Thanksgiving costume pack, too! If you’re not convinced, check out the PHB’s complete Forgotten Islands Walkthrough, with pictures and the whole storyline to show you what the game is like.
If that’s not right up your alley, maybe you’ll find something else that catches your eye on the Poptropica Shop’s printable holiday wishlist for 2013. For a full list of Poptropica products, check out the PHB article Merchandise: A Guide to Poptropica Shopping!
Anyway, happy Thanksgiving from the PHB! We’re grateful for all you readers for your support just by visiting our website and eating all the crawfish from our fridge. (Wait, what?)
Also, Poptropolis Games Island 2013 will be available to everyone next Thursday, December 5, so be ready to represent your tribe well in high-spirited competition!
