Movie Theater: Coming soon!

Hey everyone, it’s Perfect Sky.

As I logged on to Poptropica this morning, I noticed that something pretty exciting with a very bright, eye-catching design compared to the surroundings, had just popped up on Home Island.

“Movies” coming soon to Home Island? Yup, that’s what it looks like, and I have a few guesses as to what these movies could be. But before we get into the theories, shoutout to Fierce Flyer for being the first blogger to notice and post about this update! Now, while we’re waiting for the theater to open, let’s take a moment to consider some possibilities for the content of the movies.   

Island Trailers:

Although the current map provides short written summaries for every island, and yes, I know the Creators have already made island trailers, new players would be more likely to find these trailers if they were accessible right there on Home Island. So, some (probably not all) of these movies may be already-existing island trailers.

Advertisements: 

Is it really a movie theater, or just the official ad hub? This probably isn’t the case, but I’ve seen many other online games add “movie theaters” filled with advertisement videos and nothing else, where watching an ad gives the player some kind of prize. If the Pop movie theater does feature ad videos, hopefully it will be in addition to other movies. If not, then  I’m sure the Creators could at least think of some awesome prizes.

Poptropica Cartoons:

It would be pretty cool if the movie theater had cartoons, not necessarily following the plot of any island, starring classic Pop characters. Also, the Creators might even use this as an opportunity to introduce new characters, whether those characters would eventually appear in future islands or just movies.

Previously Mentioned Movies: 

The theater may feature some movies that have already been mentioned previously through in-game posters, such as “Night of the Living Carrots.”

previously mentioned pop movies

It’s also possible that the same movies won’t be playing all the time. Just as the availability of certain items in the Poptropica Store rotates in a cycle, it may be the same for movies.

Some things to consider 

Regardless of what these movies consist of, there are a few things to consider in order to keep any expectations more realistic.

  • The Creators obviously can’t make long, complex, full length films free of charge, so these movies definitely wouldn’t be very long.
  • Although movie tickets are apparently free according to the guy by the wheel, popcorn, which I’m assuming would be a handheld item players can carry around, costs “like a bazillion coins.” Since credits are much easier to obtain in larger quantities now, it makes sense that there would be some kind of other fee to pay upon entering the theater, but this would probably only apply to non-members. The theater itself is free, but any other items available for purchase within the theater may be really expensive.
  • The theater probably won’t have many movies available on opening day. I mean, it could, but I wouldn’t be surprised if only a few movies release at first, and if new movies only release one at a time. After all, the Creators are also busy with much bigger projects like Poptropica Worlds.

Well that’s all for my theories, and of course, I may be totally wrong. Share your thoughts on the movie theater in the comments below!

Don’t panic; they’re bringing back the classics!

yeah

Slip here. 👋

I can’t believe it as well! Poptropica has brought back old costumes and power cards! Let’s check out the items they’ve brought back, starting from the power cards!

First off, they’ve brought back the prizes from 2015’s Daily Pop-In: the Fart Gun and the Twin Power. You may remember these prizes from past ads like Despicable Me and Liv and Maddie. If you would track their first appearance, they are actually from a few years back (around 3 years ago). They’re quite perfect for Multiverse parties, and you’re quite lucky if you have these items for free because the Fart Gun costs 500 credits, while the Twin Power costs 300.

Not only the prizes from the Daily Pop-In returned but as well as the Shrink Ray gun from 2011! Well, it also made its re-appearance in 2014 in honor of Shrink Ray Island’s re-release as a sound-updated island (SUI). Still, it’s a classic! Like the items mentioned above, some of you are lucky enough to grab this for free for the Shrink Ray now costs 500 credits! It’s twice as much as its original price!

comeback

Moving on to the costumes, Poptropica has brought back the Graduate and the prom outfits for all! What an awesome way to prepare for the graduation and prom seasons to come! The Ice Cream costume also returned to mark the coming of summer in some countries!

Along with that, a myriad of comeback outfits returned for girls at the Poptropica Store. Most of them are from classic Poptropica and some returned from years of being gone from the Store itself! To name a few, they are the Southern Belle, Pop Star, Wrestling Gear, and the Creepy Countess! Check out the other costumes below! (Click the images to enlarge them.)

…and that is basically what’s in store for you next time you drop by the Poptropica Store! Make sure to stock up on credits by replaying March’s IotMs or spinning the Wheel of Fortune every day! Also, don’t forget to grab the Spring freebies and the St. Patrick’s Day gifts while they’re around! :))

Don’t forget to like or comment, okay? Stay awesome!

Super Snaps and Blogging Tips from Skinny Moon!

Hello, everyone!

Lucky Joker here, with some Super Power Island behind-the-scenes, blogging tips from Skinny Moon, and recapping a quick Skinny Moon visit to the PHC!

Today, Skinny Moon posted these behind-the-scenes sketches (as well as on Tumblr) onto her Snapchat story – featuring some highly-detailed sketches of characters and backgrounds from Super Power Island (one of March’s Islands of the Month). Tip: Click any of the images to make them larger.

Pre-Realms Tour: The Land of Chole

(Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by Sticky Clown, in which he gives a tour of his Pre-Realms Land creation, Chole. Enjoy! –🐠)

chole

Hello everyone! I am Sticky Clown, or SC if you’d like. I go by Starving Cereal on WordPress.

Today I wish to show you something a bit old, just for fun to distract from the Poptropica World stuff going on currently. It is my old home. As in, from Poptropica Land (that was the prototype before Realms, for those who don’t know). Now, a few of you who have known me since ye old glory days may object to what I am doing, as I have previously posted this on a few other blogs. But the reason I’m doing this is – well, there’s many. They are:

  1. While Poptropica Land is about three years old, it’s still very similar to Realms and should be easy to digest. Plus, I’d say this can qualify as a period piece.
  2. This is not going to be the exact same as that post I’ve made elsewhere. I have added several extra thoughts as well as some modifications. This is going to be 2-3 times as big as the original, at least.
  3. Soon I hope to be doing a tour of my Realms, Chole (the code for that is 3vpqv, if you’re interested in checking it out for yourself </plug>). Think of this as a prelude to my adventure, a point which you can use for comparison.
  4. And finally… I’m an egocentric bigoted unsatisfiable superficial narcissist hungering for infinite fame on the interwebs, ready to repost old posts just to gain more attention, even if it is based on a game aimed towards children.

So yeah, I think I’ve justified myself sufficiently. Let’s start on this wonderful journey, shall we? 🙂

To start, here is the bridge to my house – my first ever build!

Yeah… it’s a bit crappy. I’m not very fond of this myself, and that’s discarding everything else I’ve built. Let’s concentrate on the bridge as we cross it with my Mocktropica Narf companion, Narfy.

Spring, Skinny Moon, and Snow―woah!

spring

Slip here. 👋

It’s finally Spring— the flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, the people are sneezing, but it’s still snowing! Well, for those Poptropicans living in the Southern hemisphere, have a fantastic fall! Just stay there, all cozy in your seats.🌸🍁

In honor of the equinox, Poptropica is bringing back the Flower Power and the Sneezing Powder to the Poptropica Store! If you haven’t grabbed those freebies, well now’s the time! spring

The Flower Power has a double function: you can use it as a costume or press the spacebar for its special power! The Sneezing Powder, on the other hand, makes everyone around you sneeze like Poptropicans have noses. 😛 It’s perfect for playing pranks during meet-ups on the Multiverse. 😉

Along with it, Skinny Moon shared an accurate representation of the weather in Boston at the moment. 😛

huehue

Speaking of Skinny Moon, she dropped by the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC) earlier! Although, it’s not as lengthy as the past one and didn’t involve any revelations regarding Poptropica Worlds; it’s just a small chit-chat! She did say that they were very busy right now, and shared a picture of Toby! (Click the pictures to enlarge them!)

Well, I hope you had fun talking to her when she stopped by, even for just a fleeting moment. Just make sure to keep an eye out on Discord whenever she stops by!

… and that wraps today’s post! I’m pretty sure I covered everything, right? Make sure to click the like button below or write up a comment below! Thanks for taking the time to read this post. 🙂

that will be all

My Place in Poptropica: TylerMaster

This is the My Place in Poptropica story of TylerMaster, a longtime Poptropica glitcher who continues to discover new things to this day. See below for how to send in your own MPIP!

2007-2009 | The Start of My Adventures

I started playing Poptropica in 2007, very close to when it first came out, and I was seven years old at the time. I discovered the game at school and I had lots of fun playing it.

When I first started playing Poptropica, there was no friends list or anything like that. But I still had lots of fun beating islands.

Then one day, in 2009, I saw that they had added something new: the Store! So I saved up as many credits as I could get so that I could get lots of items. I had lots of fun doing that, but eventually got bored of it, so I took a break for a while.

2009-2010 | Returning and Discovering Glitching

So one day I was bored at school and decided to revisit Poptropica – and I immediately fell back in love with it!

As I was playing one day, I figured out some of the keyboard commands, such as Ctrl + Shift + S which changes your skin color (only works on non-SUIs). From there, I wanted to learn more cheats, and thus began my adventures in glitching. I learned all I could, from the ASG (Avatar Studio Glitch) to the CEG (Customize Everything Glitch, now done with MAP or iPop).

One day, I learned that there were different websites dedicated to glitching, such as DummyTron and MAP. Creating dummies was a ton of fun. I also used websites like PoptropAds to teleport to various retired advertisement buildings and games.

2010–2015 | Zombie Eyes

At some point I got bored of Poptropica again, and took another break. A whole year passed before I decided to come back to Poptropica.

When I returned, I found out that most of the glitches I’d enjoyed had been patched, although some of them were still around, like the ASG.

Anyway, one day I came across the PHB’s chat hangout, the PHC, and decided to join. My first friend on there was Red Lizard, also known as RL, and my second friend was NinjaDude, or ND. I really wanted to get zombie eyes on my Poptropican, so RL, ND, and I started poking around with Poptropica’s files trying to find some way to get them. Every day, our mission seemed to get more and more hopeless – until one day, RL made our first breakthrough! He’d found a temporary way to get the zombie eyes.

Eventually, as we got more people involved in our project, we decided we would only share our findings among each other. One day, I made the final breakthrough with figuring out a way to get zombie eyes permanently. But there was this one person who kept bugging me about them, so I gave in and shared my method. Well, wouldn’t you know it, the first thing that person did was turn around and leak the secret to the world.

2015–present | The Glitching Journey Continues

Seeing all my involvement with Poptropica, my parents decided that I should take a break from it for a while. So I did, for a few months.

When I returned, the PHC had moved to a different website (Discord instead of Xat), but it was still the PHC. My friend RL had made many more breakthroughs with glitching, including figuring out how to make dummies again. And there was now a tool called iPop, developed by Santorno, which RL had pro access to (which gives a few extra options that the public access key doesn’t).

Well, back when we had been working on obtaining dummy eyes together, we’d made a pact that we would always share new discoveries with each another. So he taught me about making dummies, but I was not allowed to get the pro access to iPop.

Anyway, I continued to spend time on Discord, and we made many more breakthroughs. We discovered the developer console and used that for a while, until the password to the dev console changed one day. But that was ok; we had discovered other things, like leaks for the rumored Crisis Caverns Island, how to make custom costume parts, and how to unpatch old costume parts.

To this day, the joy of glitching continues, and we are still discovering new things. And that’s My Place in Poptropica. If you’d like to add me, my user is jellal2876534.

Hope you enjoyed this “My Place in Poptropica” story! Feel free to send in your own (please include a minimum of 550 words, type with good spelling and grammar, divide it into labeled sections, and include your username). If you send in your story, we will continue to post new community MPIPs!
