Costume & Membership Winners!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here with some exciting news! Remember the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest from way, way back (February 8th, actually)? Well, in case you’ve forgotten, these were the Grand Prize costume winners:

Why am I mentioning this, you ask? Maybe because Poptropica gave a sneak peek of the costumes! The post was pretty cryptic, though, only saying this:

Costume contest winners are dropping soon in Poptropica Worlds and Poptropica Original! Stay tuned for these exciting outfits…

No date or even hint? Also, in case you haven’t noticed, posts are no longer by Skinny Moon, so the style is pretty different. I’m not much of a fan with the new changes… After all, we’re not getting a connection to the author anymore. If you didn’t see, these are what the costumes look like currently:

It looks like the most changes came to the Ocean Princess costume, especially when it comes to the “boy” version, and it lost some of the glow effects. I think they could have just changed the colors, but whatever. 😛 The costume also comes with a trident, which wasn’t part of the original. I have to say, though, the Hip Hop Boy costume is pretty spot-on.


Those aren’t the only recent winners announced, however. Recently there was a membership contest for Poptropica’s 10th birthday. All you had to do was create a unique island that had a birthday cake, parrotfish, and color green included. All ten winners got a 1-month membership for their amazing submission! These submissions included (click images for full size):

24 Carrot in Poptropica Worlds!

24 Carrot

Hiya, Silver Wolf here with some very recent news about Poptropica Worlds! An exciting update has arrived, relating to one of Poptropica’s oldest and most popular islands: 24 Carrot! Oddly, it released quite abruptly without any post or sneak peeks nodding towards its arrival. Is this a sign of less communication from Poptropica? We shall see…

New 24 Carrot CharacterIn other news, there are several changes to our beloved land of Dr. Hare. I haven’t completed it yet, but certain aspects of the quest have changed, like *spoilers* you release Charlie’s cat from a cage, which was a trap for Dr. Hare! That’s quite different from the original assignment of just finding it in a house.

What I particularly find interesting is the “Carrot Museum” that has been added! It’s similar to the Visitor’s Center on Crisis Caverns. Will every island have one of these from now on? I hope so! Perhaps this is a way for Poptropica to become more educational so perhaps schools will encourage its use. An example of one of the signs in the museum is below, describing the carrot’s evolution.

The Quest Log has also worked for me so far, which I’m fairly happy about because it was my favorite change from the original Poptropica. It’s especially helpful if you haven’t played in a long time and forgot where you were, or you simply need a nudge in the right direction.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Have fun! 🙂

News & More: #WhereIsTheHare

Hiya Poptropicans! I know there hasn’t been a post recently, but I’ve been kind of busy, and, well, Poptropica news is kind of dry right now. However, there is one piece of news I’m particularly excited about! Before we dive into it, though, I’ll recap what’s happened recently (the Creators have mostly just posted about Crisis Caverns/Pop Worlds):

Those are all Poptropica Worlds related posts. I’ll go into more detail about the others!


#MyPopsona

If you don’t know, a “Popsona” is a persona, or full-fleshed character, in Poptropica. They often include backstories and your Poptropican’s iconic look. The Creators have taken to sharing them on their media recently, with several on the Creators’ Blog itself! Here are some featured ones:

Make sure to click the images to enlarge them and see what account they’re from. You can actually check out #MyPopsona on the PHB’s post with some authors’ Popsonas! I tried to be pretty creative with mine, so check it out if you can!


#WhereIsTheHare

This is the piece of news I’m pretty excited about! Maybe it’s just me, but it seems reminiscent of Dr. Hare’s Travels featured from July 22, 2011, to January 5, 2012. We actually have a page featuring all his travels from that sadly short period of time. He traveled all over the globe, including Argentina, Australia, Colombia, England, France, Singapore, and the United States.

Even though it’s now called #WhereIsTheHare and is shared by Poptropica fans rather than a Creator, I hope that it brings back the theme of Dr. Hare’s Travels. Where do you think he is?


The Poppies 2017

I know, I know! Self-advertisement, eh? Well, if you haven’t heard, the Poptropica Help Blog is hosting its annual Poppies, where you nominate in Pop-related categories and vote for the ultimate winner. One of the categories is the best active fansite (outside of the Poptropica Help Network).

I would really appreciate if you guys voted for Poptropica Tips (this blog), as a lot of work has been put into this blog for over 4 years! Although, if you want to vote for another blog, that’s understandable. I just wanted to put it out there!

They prefer a link, so if you want to vote for the PTFP, put poptropicatips.com. If the blog gets enough nominations, it’ll go to the voting round! Anyway, thank you all for visiting the PTFP! 🙂

Poptropica Worlds Arrival!

We have all been waiting for this day for a long time…Poptropica Worlds is finally here! Sadly only Home Island and Crisis Caverns are available right now, but it has a ton of features! These include:

  • You get to decorate your own house
  • New updated graphics and art style
  • You can buy individual items in the Store, like shoes
  • You can explore Crisis Caverns, the newest island

Daily SpinPoptropica Worlds isn’t only available for PC, though, as it has also been released on the App Store and Google Play Store. That means you can play it anywhere you go! And don’t worry; you can still use your account from the original Poptropica.

The Daily Spin wheel is up on Poptropica Worlds, which is more important than ever because items aren’t cheap. You’ll need to buy customization items with your coins and house items. Not to mention, items aren’t free for Members anymore, either! So get spinning…or else you’ll be broke!

HouseOf course, possibly the most important of all, you get your own house! You get to decorate it with items from the Store or trophies — yes, trophies, not medals — from completing islands.

The items you can get are split into categories: wallpapers, treasures (or decorations from islands on Poptropica), appliances, furniture, and regular decorations (posters, windows, plants, etc). For myself, I have a picture of a dog, a rock star poster, a bookshelf, a Venus fly trap plant, a Crisis Caverns trophy, and the iconic Poptropica wallpaper. There are tons more, though, and I’m sure you can find some that speak to you!

Now, there are some goods and bads, but that’s for another post. Plus, I don’t want to spoil ALL of it for you! So get to it! There’s plenty to discover.

A New World is Coming…

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and I have some exciting news! Skinny Moon sent out some sneak peeks of Poptropica Worlds, which is releasing soon, and I’m sure all of you are ready to see what’s coming up! Some things they said that are going to be in the new Poptropica Worlds include:

  • A house! You get to decorate it and everything.
  • More options to customize your Poptropican!
  • The rumored new island…Crisis Caverns!
  • New art, animation, and gameplay mechanics.

Plus, your current Poptropica account will still be available in Poptropica Worlds!


Photos

Oh yes, they included photos! The first one is named “Crisis Caverns,” but it’s probably just the tip of the iceberg. After all, the photo is above ground when the island is mostly going to be underground.

As you can see, one of the signs says “Caldera State Park,” and there actually is a Caldera National Park, but it’s most likely referring to the meaning of caldera as “a large volcanic crater.” Maybe that’s how we go underground? There is a mining shaft to the left, though, so who knows. To the right, you can also see a sign that says “Old Reliable,” most likely a play on the name of the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park.

Now that we’ve evaluated picture one, let’s look at picture two. Continue reading

Poppy Updates: Spring & More!

It’s been awhile since we’ve covered some news about Poptropica. Since we’ve missed a bunch, we’re just going to link to some of the older news but cover the newer ones!


Islands of the Month + Comic

Now on to March! We haven’t been completely out-of-date, as you can see with our widget to the right. March’s Islands of the Month are…you guessed it…Super Power Island and Galactic Hot Dogs Island! Poptropicans actually got to vote between Super Power and Reality TV (it was super close with only a tiny percent difference!) I chose Super Power. 😉 But remember that March is ending soon so another two will be on their way!

Speaking of Super Power Island… The Creators have released an old comic that was from before Super Power was even an island to play! Just click the images to read:

I thought it was pretty funny, but I have two pet rats myself, and they’re not dirty! 😛

Poptropica Worlds: Coming Spring!

Hey guys, Shaky Skunk here. Sorry for not posting for so long.

About a week ago, Skinny Moon submitted a post on the Creators’ Blog that shocked the entire community – Poptropica Worlds (aka New Poptropica) was announced!

Currently, only “test dummies” are allowed in Poptropica Worlds, but we’ll be able to play it in Spring 2017! (Who knows, maybe it’ll be like 24 Carrot BETA and we’ll get to test it too.) Isn’t this exciting?

According to Skinny Moon, Poptropica Worlds will be hosted on Poptropica.com. Not to worry though, all of our old stuff (names, looks, items, etc) will be carried over. Along with our old accounts, we’ll also be getting:

  • A new look!
  • New, exciting Worlds to explore
  • Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
  • One account for everything Poptropica! (I assume this means we’ll be able to use the same account for both mobile and desktop?)
  • Your very own customizable home
  • More costumes than ever
  • Daily prizes and awesome games
  • And more to come…

More of our questions were answered in this Q&A, so give it a read if you haven’t already. I think we should wait a while before we judge Poptropica Worlds, or at least until we get more information about it. SS out!
