Binary Bard’s Arabic kin, a Mole King, & other things

Hey Poptropicans – just popping in to mention a few things. First of all, the PHB’s Arabian Nights Island Guide has now been updated with a written walkthrough (complete with pictures and even maps for the prison scenes) for Episode 2: Lair of Thieves! (Thanks to Blake, Scary Plug, Pixelzy, HPuterpop and, er, myself for contributing.) Go check it out! (And check out Sam’s review in the post below!)

Also… the coin-counting thief in the treasure keep quite resembles another iconic character from Astro-Knights Island. Does Binary Bard have Arabic kin? Heh. (thanks to Brave Tomato for pointing it out! also, check out our Arabian Nights Island page for more trivia)

Anyway, the Creators recently tweeted a few things worth mentioning – including the fact that Poptropica Membership Gift Cards will soon be available from Amazon!

Also, they tweeted a behind-the-scenes image of a three-eyed monster, which you can see in the current Goldfish Fun ad (more details in this PHB post).

They also shared this cool sketch of a character called the Mole King for an upcoming island (perhaps the underground-themed island, considering the cave-like setting – and is that a drill on his shirt?). Sadly it was scrapped because it “didn’t quite work”. 😦 Brave Sky also points out that the throne he’s sitting on looks like the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones.

Or, as Tiny Socks points out, it could be the wormhole that brought Oliver and Jorge to Poptropica in the first comic, since the Creators are planning an island based on the Pop comics. Anyway, share your guesses in the comments! 😛

    Didn’t they post a picture of the balloon animals from the comics? If you are an avid reader like I am you will know that Jorge and Oliver arrive in a red wormhole! (Which then stole Jorge’s pants.) That’s just my thought, but I wonder if they will make an island about the comics!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
