(This post is featured: scroll down for the latest posts!) What’s popping, Poptropicans? Blake here. In correlation with the earlier festivities for the PHB’s 13 million, I decided to create a little contest of my own: a Poptropica Land Construction Contest!
Come out styling with the PHB’s PoptropiCon Ep.1 guide here! The video walkthrough is coming soon!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to quickly inform you that PoptropiCon Ep.1: Line Forms Here is out for members! Plus, stay tuned for the PHB’s walkthrough after the island comes out! No demo for non-members though. :(
But there is some good news for non-members! Mission Atlantis Ep.3: Out of the Blue is out for all! Now, the full trilogy is done! If you need any help on the episode, just refer to our full guide here!
So, non-members, how is life under the sea? And members, how much zazzleblax do you rate PoptropiCon? Take the poll below, and tell us what you think of these islands in the comments or on the PHC! :)
The Creators just posted a reminder that PoptropiCon ep. 1 is coming tomorrow for members (and based on past releases, it’ll probably come out around 5:00-ish EST). Also, the final episode of Atlantis is coming out for everyone. Along with that, some other things are going to be released…
Also, they’re going to release their first ever video walkthrough (possibly for PoptropiCon), which is pretty big news. I’m excited to see if they narrate it like past videos of theirs. I’m also curious as to whether it will be free to the public or if you will have to pay for it on the official Tips and Tricks app.
This all remains to be seen, but won’t this also conflict with the release of PoptropiCon (assuming that this will be the walkthrough that they upload)? It’s basically giving away how to beat the whole island just after it’s released – talk about extreme island champion racing! :P If it does turn out that you have to pay, don’t waste your money and consider checking out my channel (and possibly subscribing) where I’ll post the walkthrough as soon as I finish it. ;)
Anyway, just wanted to pop in. Tell me what you think in the comments. :D
Is that a new Poptropica video game?! Hmm… remember Brave Tomato’s post where she mentioned a certain part of the Creators’ Blog that hinted at a new video game in the sidebar?
Well, her findings have paid off! According to a recent tweet from the Creators, this new video game will be coming soon. Specifically, the game is for 3DS and is called Poptropica: Forgotten Islands. Sound familiar? Yep, it was an iOS app. Below are previews to what the game will hold:
Poptropica: Forgotten Islands for the 3DS will come out on October 14, 2014, but you can pre-order it now for about $30. By clicking the link in the previous sentence, you can also see the synopsis and other details for the game. If it’s anything like the iOS version that already exists, though, you can read all about it and see plenty of screenshots in the PHB’s walkthrough!
In other news, we are expecting another Poptropica Land update soon. A recent Poptropica tweet gives hints for what will be added in the update. (Click to enlarge the image.)
As you can see, the sneak peek shown above features furniture (a table, an armoire/cabinet, and a suit of armor), plus various animals. Hopefully we will get to play with these features (and more?) soon enough. Plus, will we possibly be able to customize parts of the animals? They do look fairly Poptropican size. :)
Survival Island is coming to a close, and the last episode’s title and description have been revealed on the official tour page – episode 5 is titled “Escape!” (or escahpay for Finding Nemo fans :P ), and the description reads below -
The hunt is on! In the darkness before dawn, can you turn the tables on your pursuer and escape the woods once and for all?
What can we look forward to as we escape from the legendary game hunter Myron Van Buren? We know someone – presumably Max McGullicutty – will be waiting to help us get out of the woods, and from the looks of these Daily Pop sneak peeks from the past month or so, it looks like we may be revisited by some familiar animal friends or (foes?), like the bear from the cave in episode 1 and the two beavers from episode 2! Plus, it seems our rescuer M.M. has a secret hideout…
Any theories on how we’ll be able to outsmart MVB? Will we end up by his bedside to gloat about our victory, like the hero of the story The Most Dangerous Game, which the past episode of Survival appears to be inspired by? Share your thoughts in the comments and stay tuned for the latest news on the Poptropica Help Blog! :)
The Creators just announced that episode 1 of Poptropicon Island – Line Forms Here – is coming out for Poptropica members next Thursday, August 28. If you’d like to see some behind the scenes information, click here to view the BTS Overview and Theory on the first episode. :D
And speaking of forming lines, Poptropican Portraits Season 2 is just on the horizon – stay tuned for more info! ;)
If you haven’t already seen, a few of Poptropica’s most iconic characters have taken on this challenge as well, which aims to raise awareness and donations for the ALS Association, whose goal is to fight a disease known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which deteriorates muscle control. I made a little donation in the PHB’s name, and if you can, I encourage you to help a good cause as well. :)
As for nominees: we invite any Poptropican who wants to embrace the ice, to do so — whether in real life or with a Poptropica picture! When you do, feel free to post it on your blog or just upload it somewhere, then share it with us in the comments!
On behalf of Spotted Dragon & her blog (ATP), Poptropica Tips dared to challenge Jeff Kinney himself to the #IceBucketChallenge… and Poptropica has replied on Twitter saying that we can “expect something at some point”! Looks like things may get more interesting! :P
There’s a new ad on SUIs (sound-updated islands) such as Mythology, and it’s a street stand that will lead you to a CapriSun Roarin’ Waters website where you can enter daily for a chance to take on the pros from Major League Soccer. More importantly, though, it gives you the new High Kicker power, which is activated when you click “use” and press space bar.
Strangely, this doesn’t work on non-SUIs, and it also may remove your handheld item if you’re holding one. Anyway, enjoy the special move! Keep on poppin’ on, Poptropicans. :D
