Blog Updates and Be-Careful Wishes

Hey guys! SR here.

First off, the plot for the final episode of Arabian Nights is finally here! The episode is called “Careful What You Wish For” and seems pretty exciting. Check it out!

Careful What You Wish For
The genie is out of the bottle, and now everyone wants a chance to make their wishes come true. But whether you’re a greedy merchant, a lovelorn palace guard, or a Sultan with a long-buried secret, heed this advice: be careful what you wish for!

Looks like we’ll have a quest keeping them away from the genie and making crazy wishes!

Slippery’s tip: Wish upon a star, not on a genie. XD

Next, the blog has undergone major changes:

First, we have a brand new URL! Instead of typing the long “slipperyraptorsblog.wordpress.com”, which currently is disabled, I’ve decided to change it to something shorter: “slipperyraptor.wordpress.com” If you type in the old URL, it will direct into a dead end. 😛

Second, thanks to Slanted Fish, she made us a brand new header (which we’ll use tentatively) and let’s see if you guys will like it! 🙂

Catching Up: Con 3 Release and Cool New Appdate!

Hey guys! SR here.

In the past few weeks, Poptropica has made many major updates. I’m here to enumerate them to you one by one!

Last April 16, the final episode of PoptropiCon was released to all. Everyone finally has the chance to stop Omegon, save the Mighty Action Force and the humankind from his evil clutches! Make sure to check out your position on the World Champions Map!

Last week, Poptropica also released the biggest update on the Poptropica App. The update contains a brand new multiplayer arcade, brand new costume packs and Shrink Ray Island as a free downloadable island! Please read more about the below.

As expected, the biggest and best Poptropica app-date has been released! The update contains the new Shrink Ray Island, the multi-player arcade along with Sky Dive and Star Link; and new costume bundle packs which cost $0.99!

I can say, the arcade is quite awesome. The games are cool, but there’s just one flaw when you’re playing Sky Dive. 😛 The fun never stopped there!

There are a lot of interactive items around the room. There’s a Dance Dance Revolution arcade featuring Bucket Bot from Mocktropica and a ball pit for you to jump on. Also, there are emotes on the app — including new ones! The new emotes are silly (does a silly dance) and faint (faints on the floor). Lastly, when you tap another player, your Poptropican will say, “Hello there, (Poptropican Name)!” Overall, the Creators did a great job. Check out the pictures below!

Moving along, there are new costume bundle packs at the Shop! Here’s the list of the new packs, available for $0.99:

  • Survival pack: Includes Wind Power, Ghillie Suit, & Rhino Costume
  • PoptropiCon pack: Includes Popzilla Costume, Lunar Costume, Game Show Costume Mission
  • Atlantis pack: Includes Diving Suit, Puffer Fish Costume, Drone Follower
  • Knights Pack: Includes Templar Knight, Lightning Knight, & Heart Astro Knight (girls) or Earth Astro Knight (boys)
  • Shrink Ray Pack: Includes Bottle Cap Costume, Milk Box Costume, & Shrink Ray
  • Sweet As Pie Pack: Includes Mud Pie, Lemon Meringue, & Cherry
