4000 Hits— Poptropica Rewind: Poptropica’s 2014 Islands!

2014Review

Hey guys! 2014 is coming to an end and of course, ending a year won’t be complete without recaps and assessments on how the year went. As a part of our 4,000 hits special, we will have our own recap— Poptropica style! This recap will be divided into two parts: the islands and the other stuff (Poptropica Land, Mobile apps, Permanent Updates). Shall we start the recap? Here we go!

The first part of our recap is all about Poptropica’s islands! Starting off, there were islands released this year. The number of islands are just fine since 2010 and 2013 (counting Poptropolis 2014) also had 5 islands. This year, Poptropica celebrated its 40th island and the rise of a new island system— instead of a full island, it was shorten and divided into episodes/chapters. Also, several classic islands were transformed into sound-updated islands just like Mythology and Shrink Ray. Now, let’s start with the islands released in 2014!

Monster Carnival (Island)

Poptropica’s most awaited island finally showed up last February 2014. SInce this was known as a myth in Poptropica for several years, this island became the talk of the town for years specially when Monster Carnival was seen in Mocktropica and labeled as “rejected”. Monster Carnival Island was one of the easiest islands this year and the visuals, the music, the story and the characters were all awesome! Just wished it was harder and Ringmaster Raven was more despicable. Anyways, A great start for the year!

Monster Carnival Island Game Play #1

Survival (Island)

The second Poptropica island was a surprise for the whole Poptropica community because Survival will be the first island to come in episodes. It is indeed a big milestone for Poptropica and the best thing in episodic islands is that it leaves the players wondering what would happen next. Survival Island introduced a brand new Poptropica villain, Myron Van Buren and ended the story really awesome. The island had awesome visuals, great story and excellent music to accompany the story. Last but not the least, the island was really unexpected with MVB and the man hunt because we know it’s Survival— man vs nature! Great job, Creators! What I don’t like is that the blimp was destroyed. How sad. 😦
Survival Game Play #1

Mission Atlantis (Island)

We’re halfway there! So, what about this island? Basically, this was also a shock to everyone but as players become curious of Atlantis, we conclude that this was connected to Lunar Colony. This island had its story a great foundation for the whole island. Although we had no villain to fight in this island, we discovered the ancient city of Atlantis and a bit of a lecture on aquatic animals. At first, I thought this island would be a flop but when I played the last episode, I was wrong. A correction though, this wasn’t an underwater adventure but it’s “out of this world”! Even though this island just had three episodes, the adventure was once-in-a-lifetime.

Mission Atlantis Game Play #3

PoptropiCon (Island)

This brought a new island theme to Poptropica: fantasy/conventions. The first episode was really crazy. Just for a ticket, we need to disguise ourselves and then, we need to find a new way to enter the convention. The second episode was really awesome (from 1-10, it would be 9), I just realized that spoiling something leads to a big mess. What we know, in the last episode, Omegon will attack the convention and it’s up to us and maybe with the Mighty Action Force to save the day! The battle will start sometime in 2015! Hero up! Great island, once more! What’s really awesome is that the SDCC was on-going when the island was announced!

Poptropicon Game Play #1

Arabian Nights (Island)

The winner of the Create Your Dream Island has finally appeared on Poptropica! This island is based on Arabian Nights, a famous Arabian literary work of the ancient times. Since the announcement of the winner, players were very excited to see this island and when the first episode was released, the episode was awesome, it reflected the culture and life of Arabs back in the old times. I really loved the part where the thief can’t get the camel so he fed the camel a banana! The second episode was better, the characters, the puzzles, the music and the story was just amazing. It just makes me wonder, where did they go? Were they really killed? I’m very excited to meet the genie in 2015!

Arabian Nights Game Play #3

So, that ends our recap with a bit of review (a bit.) of the islands Poptropica released in 2014! On a scale of 1-10, they would be 9. I hope the islands would be better when it’s 2015! Last but not the least, I congratulate the Creators for having an awesome year with awesome islands! Watch out for the second part of this recap and review of Poptropica’s awesomeness!

Before I end this post, these are all my thoughts and my opinions. I hope you gave time to read this post and if a Creator would comment, it would be a pleasure! Comment down below so we can hear your opinion! 😀

Happy Holidays!

Galactic Hot Dogs and Golds!

Hi guys! Slippery here catching up with the updates. Anyways, this post will contain most the major updates and some of the minor updates of the past few weeks.

First of all, Galactic Hot Dogs Island or GHD Island is finally confirmed as the next Poptropica Island!  Of course, it is based from the comic itself and after months of having islands without the word “island” at the end, GHD Island is the first island to have the suffix “island” which is most likely due to cause of episodic islands to have no suffix and full islands with it. As mentioned by the Creators, the island will be full and not episodic. As always, it has its own island page!

Here is the plot of the island! Looks like our adventure would be really awesome! Below the plot is the island gameplay featuring some scenes from the island.  What do you think?

From the hit graphic novel comes the zaniest Poptropica adventure yet. Hop aboard the Neon Wiener for an intergalactic voyage with Cosmoe, Humphree, and Princess Dagger!

Woah, The island looks awesome! Moving along, the island trailer is not yet released but the Creators uploaded a teaser for the island. Check it out! You may be able to find the Neon Wiener in the video.

Now for the Island Extras! As mentioned in a tweet by the Creators, the F.R.E.D. Follower will be free and for everyone once it is released. Also, for members, they will receive a limited-edition Galactic Space Suit soon!

Now, that wraps up the island info for Galactic Hot Dogs Island! Are you excited? I think it’ll be great. 😀

Before I move on to the next major update on Poptropica, Here are some of the minor updates on Poptropica. First is the behind the scenes moments on Twitter. (Click them if you want!)

Next minor update, Out of the Blue (iOS) and How Bazaar is now available in the Poptropica app for free! You can finally play How Bazaar and find the 40 thieves’ hideout!

That’s the first two minor updates on Poptropica but now, let’s head to the next major update!

Lair of Thieves, the second episode of Arabian Nights, is finally released to members for Early Access! Along with the release of this episode is the video walkthrough for the island. I must say, this episode is the best one yet.

Wait, that doesn’t stop there! There are more island extras along with the release of the second episode. Poptropica released three new items in the Poptropica Store. They are: the Plundered Armor, Shield and the Scimitar. Take these items along the thieves’ lair!

                 

Here’s the last two minor updates of this post! Let’s start!

The Goldfish ad is still on but now, it has a new monster featured! The Goldfish ad is found on a Main Street of a regular island or an advertisement space on a SUI. Anyways, when you’re at the entrance of the advertisement, you may find a new monster that looks like a it’s riding on a U.F.O.

goldfish2.1

If you enter the advertisement, the game is still the same. You have to find three items (now, it’s garden-themed): a small shovel, a pack of seeds, a bag of soil. Now, let me help you find the items! The seeds are near the tomato garden, the soil is by the tree and the shovel is at the tree branch near the fence.

After you find the three items, you will receive the first prize: a Monster costume! The last task is to find the monster to receive the last prize. The monster is just by the fence near the Monster Mayhem sign. Once you click on the monster, you will receive the last prize: a Monster follower! The monster will just follow you anywhere you go!

Last but not the least, there is the last ad on Poptropica! It’s the movie, Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb. This ad is different from the Goldfish ad and  this ad just makes you watch a video and then you receive the prize. You’ll just watch the trailer of the movie and then, you will receive a  Caveman Follower! In case you’re lonely, you can tag a prehistoric pal along the way. 🙂

Annnnnnnnnd that’s the end of the post! I hope you had a great time to read this post and we’re already on to 4,000 hits! Also, we’ll be celebrating our first year on 18 January 2015! So awesome! Thanks guys! Happy Holidays! Before I forgot, the nomination for the Poptropican of the Month is still on! Just comment on any posts on this blog and don’t forget to include your username and why do you want to be our POTM!

Monsters and More Awesome News!

Hello guys! Slippery here. As usual, there are new updates on Poptropica and let’s start!

First of all, the newly-updated Shrink Ray Island will finally be open to all this Thursday, 4 December 2014! As of now, members can still enjoy the early access before the time runs out!

shrinkray

Next stop on Poptropica, new ads have appeared on Poptropica! Specifically, there are four new ads: Night at the Museum, Galactic Hot Dogs, Goldfish, and Captain Toad! (Note: the Capt. Toad ad is just a video of the new game, Capt. Toad: Treasure Tracker and there are no prizes with it.)

The first ad is Galactic Hot Dogs! On every Main Street that is not an SUI, you may have the chance to check out the new GHD ad! There is only one prize, though but it’s really awesome! Just like the past advertisements of GHD, simply click the stand to claim a new costume: a Mega Dog Costume! Along with it, is a handheld item called Jupiter Jolt, which is a sauce-holder and when you press the space bar, the item will squirt out ketchup!

The next advertisement is Goldfish. You may find this ad on any SUI like Shrink Ray, Survival, and PoptropiCon. Goldfish needs your help to get rid of the monster lurking in their yard. Enter the advertisement and Goldfish will once talk to you. He will tell you to find three items: a dog food bowl, a dog collar and a dog biscuit. Since it’s night time, you have a handheld flashlight with you. Just click the battery on your screen to reload and recharge your flashlight.

Lying around garden are the items you need to get to obtain the first prize. Here are the locations of the dog-related items you need to find:

After you get all the dog-related items, you will receive the first prize: a Beach Ball costume! To get the next item, you need to find the monster. He’s very easy to find! He’s a red, lizard-like creature with a big smile (you can’t miss it!) so just simply click him to get the second and last prize: a Monster Follower!

Also, to give you an update on this blog, we now have a new holiday-themed header and some snow falling as you scroll down and read the posts! Awesome right? Now, visiting this blog feels like you’re walking in a winter wonderland.
