Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and it looks like Poptropica has had a bit of a makeover! The map with all of the islands has gotten quite of new additions… If you haven’t seen it yet or want to find out more, keep reading! 🙂 If you just want the recap, scroll to the bottom.
Now, I think we’ve all noticed lately that fewer islands have been released. Well, that’s part of the reason I made this title: you may be getting tired, but it looks like the Creators have been working on other features for us Poptropicans, and this one I like quite a bit. It’s even on the app!
The first thing to note about the new map is that they’re all in the same style! Yes, even the non-SUI islands without sound or a bigger screen. Also, you may be wondering, why is Mythology on the first page and not one of the last? After all, islands have been arranged by their release date. Well, that’s another thing of the past! Now they are arranged by how popular they are. And let me just say, not only is that convenient for new Poptropicans, but it is also genius advertising on Poptropica’s part. Although, Great Pumpkin looks very lonely at the bottom of the last page. 😦
Honestly, it’s probably because it’s only available to Members right now…right? Yes, definitely. “Home” also seems to be playing a larger part in this. Not only is there an icon in the top right corner, but it’s on the first page, and you land there whenever you log back into Poptropica, no matter what island you were on before you logged off!
Ah, but let’s get to the specifics. First of all, those bars under the islands show your progress on the island, whether it’s your first time or you restarted. When you click an island, some info will come up, including the difficulty of the island (looks like Captain Crawfish had some part in this with the gold crossbones). Under that is the medallion with how many times you’ve completed the island at the top-right, and your progress underneath, along with an option to restart. To the right is a short excerpt about the island and a ‘Start’ button. Pretty convenient! As a recap:
- The map is in the app.
- All the islands have the same style, along with some cool clouds.
- The islands are arranged by how popular they are.
- “Home” is slowly gaining more focus.
- Islands have a bar for your progress.
- The difficulty of the island is shown once you click it.
- How many times you’ve completed an island is also shown.
- Information about the island is given, too.
