In order to create, one must first destroy…

…But in order to destroy, one must first create.. I know it sounds like a cat poster, but it’s true.

What’s popping, Poptropicans? Blake here, with a little tidbit of news! You remember the blue hammer from HP’s post a few days back? Well, it appears this will have to do with either Poptropicon Island, Poptropica Labs, or perhaps an upcoming Island based on Norse mythology. (It does look a little like the Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer…)

In a post about (presumably) Poptropica Labs, the hammer is featured in this new sneak peek from the Creators’ Blog, which is titled hammertime.jpg… points to Creators on the pun. Current tally is Blake 2099, Creators 150,000. Wow, I need to step up my game!

So it seems that wizarding, dungeons and loot may be coming to Poptropica! Maybe the hammer will allow us to delete things in Poptropica Labs, since we don’t currently have this ability? Or perhaps it’s part of someone’s Poptropicon costume? This just got… *takes out mace and swings it over head a couple of times* …medieval. Stay popping, Poptropicans.

The return of Legendary Swords?

Hi Gs,

This topic has been a recurring theme throughout the years, mostly because there has been no avail. If any of you remember, Legendary Swords was a mini-quest released years ago (you can still get it from the store). Legendary Swords ended with a cliff hanger and it was to be continued. But it wasn’t.

In Mocktropica, you can find a piece of paper while searching through a trash bin that shows the villain of Legendary Swords. The paper is crumpled up, hinting that the series will never be continued.

However, Daily Pops before and after Mocktropica’s release had been very suggestive of an underground theme, which is very Legendary Swords-esque. Those sort of tapered off until there was no more mention of them — but with one recent Daily Pop, they seem to have risen again.

The title of the Daily Pop above is “Crystallized” — but the most interesting thing is the description — “The caves have come around again.” Are the Creators acknowledging the seemingly forgotten underground DP posts? If so, are these posts related to Legendary Swords?

And have you noticed all the Legendary things happening lately? Thanks to CaptainSpencer for giving me this lead. Tell me your thoughts in the comments. :)

Blast to the Past, Episode 2: Creators’ Favorite Islands

Hello PHB community, and welcome back to my Blast to the Past series! This episode we look at what the Creators’ favorite Islands are! Some of you may remember this as a week long series on the PCB two years ago from that lasted from July 20th to July 27th 2012. For those who don’t remember this, some of these picks are actually really surprising!

Can you match the Creator with their favorite Island? Remember, these can get pretty surprising.

1D  2C  3B  4E  5A

Ready for the answers? Scroll down to see how many you got correct!

A lot of them are not what you would expect! If you didn’t want to play the matching game, or just want to see the Creators’ picks without having to go check out the answers, here is a list of their picks:

  1. Master Mime – (D) Wild West Island
  2. Dr. Hare – (C) Skullduggery Island
  3. Comic Kid – (B) Vampire’s Curse and Wild West Island
  4. Director D – (E) Cryptids Island
  5. Captain Crawfish – (A) Red Dragon Island

Can you believe that Dr. Hare likes Skullduggery more than Captain Crawfish? Who would have guessed that Director D. was such a fan of urban legends? I also talked to some of the other PHB authors recently and found out what some of their favorite Islands are at the moment:

HPuterpopMocktropica Island – Mostly because the references and the style of the island. It really feels like an original island. Also, the boss battle. And the music. And breaking the fourth wall. And the humor and animation and NARFS.

Samwow5 – I like a lot of them, but my favorite is probably Survival Island. I love the episode idea and I love camping, so this island is for me!

Fuzzy-B – As much as I love the look, feel, and story of Counterfeit Island and Skullduggery Island, my favorite has to be Astro-Knights Island because I feel that the game-play and story is the best out of all 39 Islands so far!

How many Creators’ picks were you able to get right? What do you think of their picks, and some of the PHB authors’ picks? What’s your favorite Island? Sound off below with what you think!

Poptropicon member items, Comic Boy, and the return of Lands!

Hi Gs,

What isn’t happening in the world of Poptropica? Prepare to have your mind blown with all the new things happening in the Poptropica universe!  :D

Poptropicon Member Items

Soon after I posted about the upcoming Poptropicon Island, I found a new item in the files titled “Poptropicon Poster”. The button, instead of “use” or “costumize”, is print. Also, this is a Members Only poster/desktop background! (Don’t worry, non-members, we’ll post the background for everyone to download when it comes out. ;) )

In addition, there will also be a pizza puff costume, as mentioned in my last Pop-Con post. :p

Comic Boy

Found by PHB reader Big Kid, this typo on the Creators’ Blog may reveal something about the Shark Boy mystery. As you can see in the picture below, the character we know as Comic Kid on the official blog is labelled as “Comic Boy”:

comic boy

While this may just be a typo, the use of boy in the name suggests that at one time Comic Kid was supposed to be Comic Boy. That said, could Shark Boy’s sudden name change have something to do with original names? Also, could Comic Boy be the answer to the never found username of Comic Kid’s account? If you find anything, be sure to tell us in the comments. :D

The Return of Poptropica Labs: Lands

Something familiar has popped up on the game list lately: lands. This project has been stirring, and the fact that it’s on the game list means that it will be converted to an SUI version.

lands

When I looked into it a little more, I found a strange “hammer” item listed along with everything else. A hammer wasn’t included in the original lands, so what could it’s purpose be here? Perhaps to help build things? :p

hammerLands

This update might mean that lands will be available to all soon. You can get ready by reading my review of the feature here. :D

Survival 4 Video Walkthrough

I recently finished my Survival 4 video walkthrough! :D We used a different one on the PHB this time around because I had mine out a little late, so I figured I should tell everyone who does use them. ;) You can always subscribe to my YouTube channel to get updates whenever I make new video walkthroughs and more fun things. :D

Hehe no shame in self-promotion. ;)

First Arabian Nights Daily Pops… and a new DS game?

Hey guys, BT here with a few updates from the Poptropica universe.

Somewhere right now in South Carolina, our CYDI winner Sarah must be squealing in delight, because the first two Daily Pops obviously for her winning island, Arabian Nights Island, have surfaced:

Desert and… desert station. This is really an obvious Arabian Nights Daily Pop – which leaves me to wonder if this island’s episodes are gonna criss-cross PoptropiCon’s episodes, just like Survival and Mission Atlantis.

Now anyways, if you’ve looked at the Creator’s Blog recently, you’ll notice that they changed their side format… again. Of course we have our two apps, the books, the shirts, and the video games links all snug next to each othe—

20140716-075450-28490737.jpg

Wait…what is that picture next to the Video Games link? That doesn’t look familiar… It doesn’t look like the original Poptropica Adventures cover…

20140716-075217-28337565.jpg

Yet I can kinda see the Ubisoft logo on the new cover….

It looks to me like there’s gonna be a Poptropica Adventures 2!!

But wait… when I look closer… I see two words… For some strange reason, it reminded me of the Forgotten Islands app… Yet I see pictures of the red ninja, the Aztec warrior, that pirate from Forgotten Islands and…I can’t tell who’s the last one.

What’s going on here?? I have no clue. After all, not an ounce of this is mentioned on the videogame page itself…

BT out with this puzzlement….

Oh, and don’t forget to check out HP’s post about PoptropiCon’s…er… officialness. Yay!

PHB Sneak Peeks: PoptropiCon confirmed!

Hi Gs,

The rumored convention island is a reality! Let me explain. :P

While doing my creepy daily check on Poptropica’s servers, I found a strange title on the list of game files titled “con1″. I checked it out, and sure enough it was what I thought — the rumored convention island. In fact, it has the same name as what we’ve been calling it, PoptropiCon Island! :D After toying around a bit with the file names, I finally got into the island and found these amazing scenes.

Check out Pepe’s Pizza Puffs, which was also posted as a sneak peek on the Creators’ Blog along with a look at a pizza puff costume – could that be a bonus costume for members?

Also, con1 does mean that there will be other cons, thus meaning that this will be an episodic adventure. :roll: I don’t know about you, but I don’t like having to wait a whole month before I can continue my adventure. I honestly like a story that you can play through and complete in one sitting.

From the looks of it, your task for episode 1 of PoptropiCon Island will be to get inside the convention center, considering that all the locations in it are outside.

Now, my thoughts: I am so glad that this is happening. If you saw the pictures in the gallery above, then you definitely know why I am so excited. The attention to detail is pretty awesome, and the premise is just as neat.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this unreleased tid bit. More info about the island is coming soon. :D
