Galactic Hot Dogs: Princess Dagger prize pack & new costume closet!

Hey Poptropicans – Galactic Hot Dogs is back on Poptropica with some new goodies! This time I found it on Main Street of Super Power Island. Last time the GHD stand was around, it brought along the Ice Blaster Pistol, and the time before that, the Princess Dagger (girls) and Cosmoe (boys) costumes. Those prizes are now back, along with two new ones: Jack and Princess Follower!

When you click on the GHD stand to receive your prizes, you’ll also be brought to the GHD site on Funbrain where you can read the graphic novels for free! By the way, Galactic Hot Dogs uses the font “Luckiest Guy”, which PHB author HP once recommended as a free alternative to Poptropica’s title font, Ghostkid AOE. Cool, eh? :D

Also, here’s a look at part of the prize pack in action: the Princess Follower is as tall as your Poptropican, Jack transforms your head and body into a robot (you can use the Costumizer tool to remove it), and the Ice Blaster Pistol freezes innocent bystanders into a block of ice for a moment.

Enjoy your prizes!

Update by Samwow5: Hey everyone! There is a new feature for Poptropica’s costume closet! It’s only accessible on SUIs: you customize a Main Street character and the Costumizer screen pops up.

By clicking the green button with a clothes hanger and a plus, it adds the costume immediately to your closet. When you click the blue button with a hanger, it opens up your closet and lets you scroll through and delete costumes you don’t want.

Recap: PHB’s 6th birthday party!

Hey Poptropicans! As you may know, this Poptropica Help Blog (PHB) turned six on July 26, 2014, and everyone was invited to join us on the PHC and Poptropica for a celebration! Check out the recap pics below, and a summary below that. For those who came, we hope you had a stupendous time! :D

PHB6 recap

Over in the Multiverse rooms, we had sixth birthday balloons and other special effects like whoopee cushions, while on the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC), people could chat with fellow Poptropicans, PHC regulars and new faces, and even some PHB authors in attendance, including HPuterpop (who made the cute birthday doodle above), Samwow5 (Tough Icicle), and Slanted Fish.

Sam was also hosting a DJ station on his plug.dj where people could take turns sharing their favorite music, and HP & Flamez both made some new PHC backgrounds for the PHB’s anniversary (you can click their names to view them). The PHC was filled with lively chatter, and people had a fun time!

Even if you couldn’t make it this time, remember that the PHC is always available for you to hang out with other Poptropicans. By the way, at this time, the PHB has 12,871,122 site views! Thanks to all you readers for sticking with the PHB and we hope to continue being your Poptropica key! :)

Happy birthday, PHB!

By the way, check out the PHB’s History page for the story of our journey and successes!

Atlantis Ep. 2 on iOS, costume inflation, & sticker book

Hey Poptropicans! There’s been a lot of speculation flying around the PHB recently, from Thor’s hammer and Norse mythology connections to Legendary Swords crystals and even Poptropolis shaking! But there’s also some concrete stuff happening that’s worth mentioning, so let’s take a look.

Mission Atlantis: Episode 2 now on iOS app

Mission Atlantis: Fortress of the Deep (Episode 2) is now available on Poptropica’s iOS app. If you don’t want to navigate the treacherous waters alone, check out our written walkthrough (with pictures) or use a video from our trivia page to get you past the fearsome goblin shark and more!

Price hike on sausage costumes

Both the Hot Dog and Tofu Dog costumes, released to the Poptropica Store in 2010, are currently 150 credits each. (With a few exceptions, costumes are generally 75 credits each.) I’m not sure when or why exactly their price inflated, as they’re not exactly the most glamorous costumes out there. :P

hotdog150

(Speaking of the Store, the members-only Ringmaster costume which was supposed to be gone after the Early Access period of Monster Carnival Island is still here, several months later. It’s a great costume though, so hopefully it stays!) Well, at least members can get everything in the Store for free.

Sticker book is here

Also, the Poptropica Ultimate Sticker Collection book is now available, with over 1000 re-usable stickers as promised! You can get it for US$11.69 on Amazon or perhaps your local bookstore if they’re awesome enough to stock these.

In other news, don’t forget the PHB’s 6th anniversary party is this Saturday, July 26th, and we hope to see you there! More information can be found in this post. Thanks for popping by! :D

 

The PHB’s 6th birthday party – and you’re invited!

Football fever freebie for everyone this Monday!

Gooooall! Well, er, not quite yet – but the Creators have promised everyone (not just members this time!) a free costume this coming Monday, to celebrate this year’s World Cup champion team. Now the question that remains is which it’ll be: the great Germany or ardent Argentina?

Don’t forget that members can also collect 8 free football costumes in one item card from the Poptropica Store, featuring the teams that made it to the 2014 quarter-finals.

Which team are you cheering on for the big game? Sound off in the comments below! :D

Coming July 17: Survival Ep. 4 & Atlantis Ep. 2!

‘Ello Poptropicans! The Creators have finally confirmed the next episodic release date: next Thursday, July 17, the 4th episode of Survival (Cabin Fever) will be out for members, and the 2nd episode of Mission Atlantis (Fortress of the Deep) comes out for everyone. No one’s left out! :D

The PHB already has a guide for both episodes of Mission Atlantis currently available, and soon we’ll have a walkthrough for the mystery of Myron Van Buren as well. In the meantime, let’s look to the Daily Pop to see what’s up and coming for Survival Island!

Looks like we aren’t out of the woods just yet! :P

Planes: Fire and Rescue & the Land of Stories – ads

Helloooo Poptropicans! There’s a new ad on Main Street of Early Poptropica Island for the upcoming sequel to Disney’s Planes (which of course is a spin-off of Cars); this new movie being Planes: Fire & Rescue, in theaters July 18, 2014. (thanks to CartoonSage for the tip!) Inside the ad, there are two games you can play, each awarding two prizes. Let’s fly in, shall we? :)

fire and rescue

In the first game, Forest Stream Dippers, you have two minutes to put out 6 fires by clicking and holding above them with your plane (you can choose to be either Dusty or Dipper). However, first you’ll need to fill up your water supply by sitting on the river! It takes about 20 seconds to fill it all the way up, which, I should warn you, is valuable time gone in this game. Also, when you’re moving, don’t click and hold – just hovering your cursor is enough – otherwise you’ll waste precious water. For shame.

Anyway, if you’re successful in this Blimp Adventure-like adventure (unlike me, who had to retry this game quite a few times until I made it under the time limit) – you’ll win a Dusty Follower (the plane, not, you know, actual dust) and a Fire Stopper Power (which rains specks of orangey-red halfway down your screen).

In the second game, Cliffside Wildfires (is the Wildfire tribe causing trouble now? tsk tsk), you can choose to pilot Dusty, Dipper, Windlifter, or Blade. After dousing each fire (which gets progressively further and further to the right), you have to return to the base all the way on the left to recharge your ‘flame retardant’ before setting out again to put out the next fire.

If you win, you’ll be given a Dusty Cap (which, again, is not made of dust, but rather, features Dusty the plane) and a Hero Badge (which you can wear, plus press space bar to activate a sequence of planes zooming around the screen). Splendidly mediocre. I do have to say the Animacation ad offers better prizes, for those able to access it! :P

cliffside wildfires

Also, Poptropicans who log in may find two new ad items added to their inventories – girls will get an Alex Bailey costume, while boys get a Conner Bailey costume, and everyone gets a Fairy Kingdom follower. These items are for Chris Colfer’s The Land of Stories books. Upon using your two items, however, you’ll have a big advertising thought bubble over you, which kind of ruins it a bit.

land of stories

Anyway, that’s it for these couple of ads! Enjoy the games and prizes! :D
