Heartworming bonus quest & X-ray visor for members

Although Virus Hunter Island was initially released without a members’ bonus quest, one is on its way! It will be ready on September 26, when the island is released to the public. This heartworming (not to be confused with heartwarming) sneak peek might whet your appetite:

Members can also collect their free X-ray Visor from the Virus Hunter vending machine this week. Pressing space bar while wearing it lets you see people’s skeletons, quite like the Skeleton Power in the Store. The Scifi Doctor is no longer available.

There’s two new mini-ads on Back Lot Island: (1) a cart advertising Poptropica: Forgotten Islands (the iOS game, which we have a PHB walkthrough for), and (2) a video trailer for Liv and Maddie, premiering Sunday, September 15 at 8p/7c on Disney Channel. Watching the video gets you the Liv and Maddie Twin Power, where a clone of your character follows you around! (Thanks, ayman351!)

Also, remember the personalized Poptropica clothing you can buy online from the Poptropica Shop? It now comes in adult sizes as well, so even in the bigger players can wear them!

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to be awesome!

Cloudy with a chance of apple pie

There’s a new promo code floating around – enter POP6BIRTHDAY for a cool new Applebee’s Apple Pie Costume! (Thanks, TheCloneDrone.) This month marks Poptropica’s 6th birthday!

pop6birthday

Also, there’s a new ad on Main Streets (such as on Back Lot Island) for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, in theaters September 27. (Thanks, jpf0904 & ayman351.) What you’ll need to do is cross the Breakfast Bog by jumping on platforms. Watch out for obstacles, and every time you land in the honey, keep clicking until you pull yourself out.

At the end, you’ll receive two prizes – a Piece of Cake! power that gives you a cake costume until you turn it off, and a costume (Sam Sparks for girls; Flint for boys). Enjoy!

The pandemic panic is coming….

…this week! Hey guys, BT here with a piece of breaking news! In a rare weekend post from Creator Captain Crawfish, he announces the following:

We know it’s been a long time coming. We know you’ve been patient. We know we’ve promised a lot. And we’ve been working around the clock to make sure we can deliver on those promises. Now, we’re very happy to say that Early Access to Virus Hunter Island will be available this week!

It’s the biggest, wildest Poptropica adventure we’ve ever made. It’s got a bigger screen, music and sound effects, and an epic storyline. We’re very proud of Virus Hunter Island, and we can’t wait until you can play it.

We’ll let you know exactly when Virus Hunter Island is available. Keep checking back!

A lot of Poptropicans are probably sighing in relief right now. We waited four months for Virus Hunter Island, and it’s finally coming out this week! Although he doesn’t say exactly when next week, it is likely that it’ll release on Thursday, August 29, considering Poptropica tends to release their islands on a Thursday.

Anyways, the map has changed up a bit, with two of the island icons colored: Virus Hunter and 24 Carrot Island. This indicates that these islands have been affected by Poptropica’s new larger screen and soundtrack format… which means 24 Carrot Island’s new format is now available for the public! Members can now play as their own Poptropicans with the new format!

(UPDATE: The improved 24 Carrot Island is now open to everyone!)

Do you think Virus Hunter Island will be worth the wait? I hope so.

Nano-Combat Training now available!

Hey guys, BT here. Now, when I went on Poptropica at about 1:50ish EST, I discovered this new card in the Poptropica Store:

nano-combat training

Now, before you go into the store to see for yourself, let me tell you: it isn’t there anymore. Before this card was pulled off the Poptropica Store shelf, there was an ad for it on the home page (I didn’t take a screenshot of it), and I was curious enough to check it out.

However, when I tried to access this minigame, all it did was bring me into BETA Carrotene. This is really odd.

UPDATE 1 : Fuzzy-B mentions that this “Training Sim” Daily Pop could be a sneak peek for this nanobot-battling simulation game, brought to you by the Poptropica Disease Center (PDC):

UPDATE 2: This quest is now available for real for members. It actually involves the sound and larger screen. And just to warn you in advance- it is like Thunder Volt. Here’s a video from the Creators:

UPDATE 3: The PHB now has a guide for this mini-game, which you can check out here! :D

BT out!

Virus Hunter member bonuses incoming!

You know Virus Hunter is really coming soon when you see the members-only free bonuses start to come into the Store. The first of these is the Virtual Virus Costume, available only during the Early Access period. Because you’ve always wanted to look just like a virus… right?

The costume comes in two parts. When you Costumize the lower half with the body and legs, your own Poptropican’s legs will be replaced by this set of limbs which will have you skittering about like a spider.

[UPDATE 1 - July 9] The Inside-Out Power is here to give you deep insight on the insides (literally) of your Poptropican’s very being (or the very beings of others).

[UPDATE 2 - July 16] The last one is the Sneezing Powder – use it by pressing the space bar and you can give someone a sneezing fit! Aaa… aaahhh-choo!

By the way, remember the PHB’s Ongoing Story Creation? It’s still going (because it’s ongoing), so if you’d like to contribute to or even just read a Poptropica fan-fic created by fellow Poptropicans, you’re welcome to join in!

Dr Hare ears, a copter, and the return of Poptropolis

hare earsHear ye, hear ye! Free ears for everybody*! (Now you can hear me even better!) Just enter the new promo code DRHARE7500 when you log into Poptropica to receive the Dr. Hare’s Lair – Dr. Hare Ears Power, which allows you to give everybody Dr. Hare ears! (Don’t worry, they’ll be removed once you enter a new room/area.)

*Everybody who has supported the project on LEGO CUUSOO, that is. So if you haven’t done that yet, and you’ve passed your 13th birthday or know someone who already has, Mr. Bucktooth Bunny Dr. Hare would like your support!

There’s a video ad on Main Streets for a book by James Patterson called Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, Snake Hill. After watching the video, you’ll get a Middle School: Rafe Rescue Copter for a prize! The helicopter will just fly by on your screen when you activate it, like so:

…maybe not the best way to carry a sick person. At least it didn’t drop him on my head!

Could this new Daily Pop sneak peek be hinting at the return of Poptropolis Games Island? Samwow5 thinks so. It certainly does have that emerge-from-underwater and giant-statue-block feel to it!

Salvage Operation – There are a lot of treasures at the bottom of the sea.

What’s your take? Return of Poptropolis, maybe with some new additions, or just a decapitated head taking a little bubble bath in the sea? I mean, there are a couple spots on there that could use a bit of cleaning…

Coming soon to 24 Carrot Island: Beta Carrotene!

Hey, guys, BT here with a special piece of news: I looked on the 24 Carrot Island island page and I found this little thing added:

Beta Carrotene

Turns out the pink jumpsuit from earlier sneak peeks is the Members Only Beta Tester costume:

So… members can be beta testers now?! Holy slice of carrot cake, this sounds exciting! Well, from the sounds of this, it’ll be the original 24 Carrot Island quest except with a soundtrack, a bigger screen, and… “better navigation”. Oh great, don’t tell me the common room cursor is going to be a part of this…

Anyhoo, it looks like for right now, the soundtrack would be exculsively for 24 Carrot Island, but who knows if the Creators would ever make beta versions of other popular islands? Only time will tell, I guess.

BT out!

UPDATE (Fuzzy-B): The Poptropica homepage now has a banner for the upcoming 24 Carrot beta!

Back Lot Island for everyone this Thursday? Me likey!

Hey everyone! Just a friendly reminder that Back Lot Island is coming out for the public this Thursday, April 25th at 2pm EST, so non-members don’t have long to wait!

You may want to keep our Back Lot Island Guide handy, whether you’re going for one of the non-member top-ten spots or just need a bit of help. There’s even pictures!

Our Back Lot Island discussion page is the place to go for Back Lot trivia, album photos like the one on the right, and links to island goodies such as the Map!

Finally, if you’re a member, don’t forget to collect your members-only goods for this island in the Store. There’s the Silent Treatment power and the Clapboard item, but the Director Costume will be gone by Thursday after early access is over.
