Twisted Thicket has released for everyone!
Go get those photos/medallions for your profile! And if you get stuck, you have our Twisted Thicket resources at your disposal 🙂
Throughout this week, the Creators were posting about the features in Poptropica Friends and how they work! 😀 Here, I’ll be posting them one by one, forming somewhat of a guide to it, I guess 😛 So let’s get started with…
One of the great things about Poptropica Friends is that you’ll be able to see what medallions your friends have earned, and they’ll be able to see the same for you. You’ll even be able to show off how many times you’ve beaten each Island, by using Island Restart.
See how this person has all the medals for all 26 islands? Well, ALL your friends will see how many medallions you have earned, and how many times you’ve beaten an Island with Poptropica Friends! So start adding to your medal count! This feature is coming soon!
RECENT ACTIVITY FEED
Presenting the Recent Activity feed! You’ll see this little box whenever you return to Poptropica, and it will show you the most up-to-date things your friends have been doing in Poptropica. You’ll see when your friend has earned a photo, beaten an Island, saved a new costume, or answered a Pop Quiz. You can click through to see their full profile, or just flip through the feed to see what everyone is up to.
See also how that box has the Pop Quiz right next to it? You can also answer the Pop Quiz from the homepage!
One of the new features that will be coming with Poptropica Friends is the photo album. It’s like your own virtual scrapbook of your adventures through Poptropica!
By playing through Islands, you’ll occasionally see a message that says “New Photo Added” when you get to an important part of the story. Then, when you visit your photo album, you’ll see snapshots showing you a new perspective of your character’s feats. Every Island has about four different photos. There are over 100 in total!
Even better: every time you earn a new photo, the outfit you were wearing at the time is recorded in the picture. Even if you change clothes, you can costumize from your photos later!
Wait, there’s more! If you’re looking through a friend’s photo album, you can costumize off of them, too. It’s like the number of possible costumes just went to infinity!
The only thing that I don’t like about this, is that you have to replay Islands to get the photos you need for your album. So even if you completed all the Islands on your account(s), you will have to replay the Islands to get the photos. They will not be pre-added to the photo album. So according to the picture, you can choose which island’s photos to display, and whether to costumize them or not! So cool!
Another new feature with Poptropica Friends is the Costume Closet, which allows Members to store up to 30 unique costumes at a time. Not only that, but you can look through your friends’ closets and borrow their best costume ideas, as well.
There you have it! The days of putting together a spectacular costume and then having to get rid of it are almost over.
If you notice, they say “which allows Members”. Does that mean the closet is only available for Members, or will Non-members be able to use it too, but store less costumes? Hmm… But Poptropica friends looks interesting so far!! 😀
Some ads and glitch videos that Loud Shark would like me to show you…
