Hi, Poptropicans! Despite a lack of posts this month so far on the Creators’ Blog, there have been some small updates recently on Poptropica and Instagram! It’s likely that like the rest of us, Poptropica has had to make some major shifts to accommodate with the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The first piece of news is that an advertisement game has appeared on the first page of Poptropica map. You can also visit it on right side of the main street on 24 Carrot Island. It’s for Trolls World Tour, a Dreamworks movie coming out April 10th!
Once you enter, you can talk to several of Troll’s main characters and explore the area. If you talk to Poppy, the pink troll, you’ll go through several dialogue lines and the game screen will appear. Your mission: defeat the rock music trolls with your electric guitar!
The game screen may look familiar to you if you’ve ever played music games like Rock Band or Guitar Hero. The instructions are simple — when the jewel reaches its slot at the bottom, click it! You can see how well you’re doing with the meter to the bottom left. The bar on the left side of the screen shows how much time is left in the song.
If you mess up, the rock trolls win and you’ll have to try again!
Once you’ve successfully completed the game, you’ll get two prizes: Rainbow Glitter Barf and the Tiny Diamond Follower. As always, you can access them by going to your items and clicking the “Prizes” trophy tab.
I have to say, the cards don’t do them justice! The Trolls Diamond Follower turns the whole screen into glitter and quickly fades away. The Rainbow Glitter Barf gives you trollish hair and, well, you look like this:
#NationalPuppyDay Instagram post
In another tidbit of news, the Poptropica Creators’ Instagram made a post for the first time since February 21st. Did you know yesterday was National Puppy Day?
It’s not much, but it’s the first post by the Creators on social media and their blog since February. Perhaps this is a sign that they’re getting back in business! Only time will tell. With Flash ending in December this year, it’s possible they’re doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work.
What do you think of the new advertisement and the lack of posts from the Creators? Leave a comment below!
