Poptropica’s 8th Birthday

Yep, it’s that time of year! September marks the birth-month of our favorite online game. This year, Poptropica is turning 8 years old, which makes me feel like an old lady. 😛

To celebrate this amazing occasion, you can now get an 8th Birthday Balloon on the Poptropica app, which will also soon be available in the online version soon. However, if you already have the Balloons item card, you can get the 8th b-day balloon online right now! 🙂

To make the month even better, a World Champions Live Map is going to be put up for Early Poptropica Island! So go play now!!! The Creators will let us know as soon as the map is up. Plus, if you’re new to Poptropica, you can earn 200 credits when you first complete the island.

Meanwhile, PHB author Slippery Raptor created what he wanted to be the 8th Birthday Costume and HPuterepop made a slightly edited version.

No matter what prizes we get this month, I’m just glad Poptropica had been around this long. It would have never been this successful without its AMAZING fan base. The game may be targeted for younger kids, but I have met many awesome Poptropicans and am super grateful for our little community. So… HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPTROPICA!!!

You could also have entered the promo code BURRITO to earn a Burrito the Cat follower, but it never showed up in my inventory for some reason and was never announced by the Creators, so the item may come with a few bugs.

That’s it for now, but be sure to play Timmy Failure Island, which will be release for members on September 17th, which is next week!

P.S. September means it’s Poptropica’s Birth-month, so keep a lookout for a birthday surprise! Happy 8th B-month guys!

We Bare Bears Ad & 2 New Store Items

Hey guys! SD here with a cool Poptropica update. First off, there is a new unbearable ad that has appeared.

bear stack

This ad is for the pawsitively amazing Cartoon Network show: We Bare Bears. You bearly have to to anything to get an awesome Bear Stack hat. All you have to do is watch a short video. 😛

Okay guys, thanks for bearing with me through all of those beary punny bear puns. I thought for sure you would go all grizzly on me. XD

*cough* Aaaaanyway, moving on…

There are two new items in the Poptropica Store, each only 75 credits! First is Hat Trick, which has three different hats included in it, but it’s different for girls and boys. The second item is Capes ‘n’ Cowls, which includes three different capes with hoods.

So go visit the Poptropica Store to check them out! 😀

Tablet/Phone Promo & Members Only Islands

Okay… so I got some bad news guys. Remember the whole Nabooti demo thing? Well, more islands have joined the members only club.

membership islands

There may be over 40 islands, but now 7 of those islands are exclusive for members. Those islands include:

Non-members can still play a demo of each island, but nothing beyond that.

Yes, what we have feared is true. I just hope Poptropica won’t become completely membership oriented. 😦 

Anyway, time for the good news!

popanywhere

If you log into Poptropica (not the app), you can go to the store and enter the promo code “POPANYWHERE.”

If you do this, you will get the Poptropica App Tablet & Phone gold card. With this item, you can either let your character hold a tablet or phone! 🙂 

Until next time!

Last Hall of Fame Winner & CashMoney Problems

The last Hall of Fame winner is here, so let’s get straight to the point! The winner is… Sneaky Bear!

Sneaky Bear can now be found on main street of Super Power Island.

She has replaced yet another NPC, but this time the Poptropican she replaced was a character that always had a random outfit every time you visit.

Well the Hall of Fame is now over, but the Creators say that “the doors of the Poptropica Hall of Fame may one day open again.”

Moving on, we have some… good and bad news.

Good news first! 😀

credit raise

You know how when you finish an island you receive 50 credits? Not anymore! But don’t worry, it didn’t just get taken away. We now earn 150 credits! 🙂

While this is great for when you need to save up for something in the store, there are actually a lot of conflicted feelings about this.

Before everyone gets all fussy, I want to share my opinion on the matter.

  1. If we are getting more credits, we need more things to buy! I think we should have more Store items and costumes to choose from. Stuff that isn’t only for members!
  2. I think that the amount of credits we earn after the quest should be based on the island’s play length and difficulty. The Creators would just have to estimate this when making the island.

Okay, so why is everyone conflicted about this? Well, here comes the bad news.

nabooti demo

For some background information on the whole Nabooti Demo thing, be sure to read my post about it.

Anyway, the Creators have explained that Nabooti Island will be members only for the time being. You can probably assume what that implies.

So… lots of enticing membership deals.

Will more islands face the same fate? Hopefully not! Poptropica has been the popular site it is because of many things. One of those things being that members don’t totally rule over non-members.

Well, we will see what’s to come!
