Poptropica interactive guide on iPad, #1 for DS adventure game, font-tastic new monster gear for your costume closet

While the biggest news this week is definitely the release of Zomberry Island, some other big things have been happening as well, which we’ll be looking at in this post. (Click here if you need a walkthrough or other resources for Zomberry!)

Poptropica: The Official Guide is now available on iPad through iTunes/iBooks! More interactive than the book version, the iPad edition includes quizzes, slideshows, and high-res graphics.

Poptropica Adventures, Poptropica’s first video game on the Nintendo DS platform, reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s sales rankings for DS adventure games. If you haven’t beat the game yet, check out the PHB walkthrough for Poptropica Adventures!

Hark! The PHB now has an article all about Poptropica’s Fonts, which you can find under the Cool Stuff page. Learn about the main typefaces Poptropica uses and how you can download them!

Non-member access to the typically members-only Costume Closet will be ending this Saturday, December 22. Your costumes will still be there, but you’ll need membership to get them.

There’s a new ad for Monsters, Inc. which will be in theaters December 19 in 3D. Watch the trailer video and get a new costume! Boys will get the Mike Wazowski Hat and girls will get the Boo Costume. Thanks Mad Tornado and Ayman351! Looking totally spiffy there.

Monsters Inc 3D ad

Oh yeah, the PHB reached 7.5 million views! Have yourself a merry little fruitcake!

Note to the above: If you took one, you’re now a zombie. Didn’t we warn you not to eat any fruit??

There’s a Zomberry on your lawn…

Zomberry login screen

Hey guys, Zomberry Island is now available for Poptropican Members! Nonmembers can play the demo, but they have to wait until Thursday, January 10th to play the whole thing. And as you can see above, the screen has dimmed and the homepage has its regular Poptropicans replaced with a bunch of….slow….moving…zombies………..really…..slow…moving….

There’s no guide for it yet, but stay tuned to the Poptropica Help Blog for one coming soon! ;) Update: Check out the Zomberry Island Guide page and get help from the full walkthrough written by Samwow5. The video playlist and map is also up.

To those who have played it, what do you think? You can share here or on the PHB’s Zomberry Island discussion page!

BT out!

Zomberry Island Trailer and Goldfish Fun Ad

The trailer video for Zomberry Island is up! Now that zombies have taken over Eastman, an eerie atmosphere hangs in the city air as one by one, victims are lost to the Zomberry plague…

It should be coming out very soon! When it does, the PHB will definitely be prepared to keep everyone alive with cheats for Zomberry Island.

In the meantime, there’s a new Goldfish Fun ad on Main Streets. (Thanks Mad Tornado and Strange Beetle!) You can find it on islands such as the recent Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but it appears that older players don’t have access to the new building. Inside, you’ll find two games!

Goldfish Fun 2 Games

The first is Jetpack Dash, which is an off-site game that takes you to Goldfishfun.com so you can compete there. The other is Space Race, and all you have to do is get to the finish line first! Move your character (the bigger one) up and down with your cursor to avoid obstacles and get speed boosts (the portals) to go faster. When you win, you’ll be awarded a Space Racer Suit (pictured above) and Flying Fish Power, which sends the goldfish flying across your screen for a few seconds.

Also, the Balloons gold card item from the Store has been updated with a balloon for the Poptropolis Games. Thanks Ayman351! With all this flying around, you might just escape being turned into one of the zombies in the quickly-rising army of drones who proved that you really are what you eat…

Chocolate and Big Blue berries for the zombie uprising

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island is now open to everyone! If you need a walkthrough, we’ve got you covered with our CatCF Island Guide or video playlist. Enjoy your golden ticket! :D

Charlie Zomberry Map

As you rush excitedly over to the Wonka factory gates, you may notice a new island in the distance – yep, Zomberry Island is now COMING SOON on the Map! Thanks Jingle Dragon. We don’t know when exactly it’ll come out, but who knows, maybe they’ll time it for around December 21st, 2012 in keeping with an “end of the world” theme. :P

Of course, you’ll want some gear if you’re going to survive this zombie apocalypse! Though it’s just for members… well, good luck out there, non-members. Put on your ZMB Unit and equip your Safety Flare, or you may just wind up turning into another victim with a bad case of Big Blue.

If you’re dying (heh, see what I did there?) to know the origin behind Poptropica’s zombie apocalypse, catch up with page 1, page 2, and page 3 of the Zomberry: Day Zero comic on this blog! The plot thickens in page 4…

Ohhh snap! Looks like it’s Joe Puddy vs. the Zombies. What will happen next?

Anyway, there’s been a lot of positive feedback about the recent change of the PHB’s layout, and I just wanted to say thank you for all your support and suggestions. And in case you haven’t seen them yet, the PHB has new pages for the Tribes of Poptropica, so go cheer on your favorite team! Also, thanks for helping us reach 7.4 million hits! Have a great weekend! :D

Early Thanksgiving Present!

No I’m not faking, I’m alive! If you were thinking otherwise >.>. School has been taking up most of my life so far, and with 3 APs and whatnot, I have a lot on my plate. But I’m on Thanksgiving break now! Enough about me, let’s talk about the present to us non-members! :D


You know how the Costume Closet was for members only? *sniff* WELL NOT ANYMORE! INTRODUCING….

This one-time deal includes about a month’s worth a crazy-looking, costume-saving fun! Save up to 30 looks into this awesome costume closet! 0% down payment until December 22! 0% DOWN PAYMENT UNTIL DECEMBER 22! Restriction rates apply. SO ORDER NOW! It’s all waiting for you!

* You’re killing me Larry! plays in the background*

SkullBook – New Promo Code for Skull Pirate!

You’ve assembled your crew, bought the best ship that money can buy, and have prepared yourself a nice meal of crawfish and rum – but wait! You’re not ready to sail the briny seas until you’ve put on the Skull Pirate costume your mother bought you!

Just kidding about that last part. You can actually get this costume just by entering the promo code skullbook in the top-right corner of the Poptropica Store! So easy. Thanks to Meow for the tip.

This code, which should work for everyone, comes from reading the Funbrain sample of the Poptropica: Skullduggery Island book. Plus, you can press the spacebar to swing your skull-tastic sword around to ward off enemies! Fantastic.

Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee dee, if you are wise you’ll listen to me

Wow, the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island sure snuck up on us quickly! Who’s ready to explore the factory? Samwow5 (Tough Icicle) was right on the top of his game and quickly had the walkthrough all written, with pictures included. If you’re stuck in a chocolate tube, you can use it for a little island help.

If you prefer, we’ve got a video playlist for CatCF as well. Members can play the whole island now, and non-members get a demo, but it’s out for everyone on December 6th. Sweet as Wonka’s whipple-scrumptious fudgemallow delight! :D

Also, the third and final costume on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Multi-Prize Card has been unlocked! Aaand… it’s a paper clock tower costume. What?

Thanks to Samwow5 for the picture. If you didn’t get it yet, the promo code (which you enter on the Poptropica Store’s top-right corner) is wimpy2012.

And now, there’s a new line of toys for your collection: the Poptropica Pocketeers! Say hello to Dark Astro-Knight, Hamburger, Dr. Hare, or Lion. These 2-inch buddies can be bought at Toys R Us and come with a code that will give you an exclusive prize on Poptropica, just like all the other Poptropica toys.

Get one for your birthday! I just turned 16 on Thursday (November 15th), thus making me over the 6-15 range for Poptropica accounts. Am I getting old or what? :P

Willy Gold Cards

Today, the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory members golden tickets, erm, golden cards have arrived in the Poptropica Store- the Everlasting Gobstopper, the Oompa-Loompa power, and the Oompa-Loompa costume! :D

Just seeing the gold makes me anxious… anyways, here’s a look at what the items do…

The Everlasting Gobstopper is a power similar to the bubble gum- your Poptropican’s mouth does the same chewing motion, and every once in a while, a random fruit will appear over your head, probably indicating the flavor of the gobstopper you are currently on. There’s watermelon, lemon, blueberry, and cherry

Moving right along, there’s the Oompa-Loompa Power. If you click on it, a little Oompa-Loompa will come to you and give you a peppermint candy to hold! Perfect for confidence and energy boosts!

Finally, my personal candy slave giver! And speaking of those Oompa-Loompas, you can dress up as one, too!

This is the male version:

And this is the female version:

If you’re planning to get the Oompa-Loompa costume, don’t procrastinate! It’s only available from now until the island comes out to the public!

As usual, the release of these golden tickets…er… gold cards (Why do I keep saying that???) hint to us that the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island release day is not too far away!

Are you ready to feed your imagination?

BT out!
