Getting to Know Daily Pop: as seen on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog
First, when you log onto your Poptropica account, you’ll see this screen. (You’ll need to have a saved username and password in order to use this section!)
From this page, you can jump back into your game, or check out some of the featured content we’re sharing that we think you’ll enjoy. The link for the Daily Pop is that exploding “POP” icon in the upper right.
The first section that loads is comics. There are nine strips that you can choose to read, each updated daily.
When you’re reading a comic, you can rate it on a scale of 1-5 stars.
This helps the Poptropica Creators know what comics Poptropicans are enjoying the most!
Now, let’s take a look at the games section. Click the “games” link to access the full menu of games from Poptropica’s friends at Miniclip. There’s something for everybody!
Once you start playing a game, you can rate it from one to five stars. You’ll also see which of your fellow Poptropicans are atop the leaderboards, with the top scores from the day, from the week, and from the month.
If you’re not one of the lucky leaders, you can still see your own all-time high score displayed right above the game. Er… don’t make fun of my score on this game. It was a practice round.
One of the cool features in Daily Pop is the high score list. Each game displays the Poptropican with the highest score for the day, the week, and the month. Periodically, the Poptropica Creators will be featuring some of the high scorers on their blog, too.
For the curious minded, there is a part of Daily Pop called “Sneak Peeks.” This is the place to see exclusive looks at upcoming islands, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at existing Islands, costumes, and more. From the earliest sketches to the final art, you can get an inside look at the Creators’ creative process.
Just as with games and comics, you can rate every sneak peek from one to five stars. They want to know what you think!
Creator Clips are original stories, jokes, pictures, and other fun stuff from some of the best writers, illustrators, and cartoonists around.
You can learn some interesting things such as:
- The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to Rick Riordan, the author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians
- The worst job that Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, ever had
- The scariest thing that ever happened to Mary Pope Osborne, author of The Magic Tree House
- Something that Lincoln Peirce, writer and artist of Big Nate, has never told anyone before
And much, much more! A new entry is posted every Monday. One last word about all of this: No matter where you are — whether you’re on Daily Pop, in the Poptropica Store, or on the “welcome back” page — clicking the golden blimp icon in the upper-right part of the screen will take you directly back to your island quest. Enjoy!
