Realms, MotM, Credits, Tutorial, & More!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and there are a ton of updates! There has been news of a book coming out, problems with Realms, the availability for 300 credits, a new tutorial, and more. *wipes sweat off of head* Let’s get started, then! All of the info will be from oldest to newest.


Poptropica Realms Problems

Poptropica RealmsRecently Poptropica Realms’ icon hasn’t been on the map. Wondering why? Well, the Creators have explained that in a recent update, there was a bug in the coding that made Realms unavailable. They’re not sure how long it will take to fix Realms again, but the post on the Creators’ Blog about it was made February 16, and it still hasn’t been added back. It seems like they may be having some major problems, so we’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.


Mystery of the Map Book

The Poptropica graphic novel Mystery of the Map is available in bookstores on March 1.Mystery of the Map’s graphic novel that you may have followed early last year is being released to bookstores on March 1st! Although, going back to the posts on the Creators’ Blog with the posts on the Mystery of the Map pages, it seems like they’ve been taken down. The goods news, though, is that the book will have additional pages and artwork! At least this way if you did read the whole story, there will be some things you haven’t seen before.


National Engineers Week Credits

If you’re new to Poptropica, you may have some luck this week because the Creators are doubling the amount of credits you receive when you complete four particular islands that are related to engineering. (That means you get 300!) :mrgreen:

That’s right! This week only, you’ll earn 300 credits if it’s your first time finishing any of these Islands:

The credits opportunity ends February 27th, so get on with exploring, collecting, and competing, Poptropicans!


Monkey Wrench Island Tutorial

Monkey WrenchIf you go to the Home Island, Amelia Earhart will greet you when you first land, and she will ask you if you want to go with her to an island, promptly named so because the island is full of monkeys. The whole point of the island is to teach you how to play, so there will be messages like the one to the right, telling you how to respond to another Poptropican.

The plot of the island is that you’re racing and you get far ahead, but one of the opponents known as the Red Baroness makes you crash and land on the island. The further you progress, the more you’ll notice that these are the scenes we’ve been seeing lately in the Daily Pops. Also, there’s a little tidbit explaining how the blimp came to be! It seems like you have indirectly caused such a masterpiece. The Creators haven’t specifically said anything about the island yet on their blog ( 😕 ), but they most likely will soon. Although, they recently made a tweet about kids testing it out, and they  just made a tweet about the island, too:


Photo Booth and New Icons

As a side note, there was a Valentine’s-themed photo booth near the holiday, along with a Mystery of the Map-themed one as well. We’ve posted some of the Valentine’s photo booth creations on our Twitter if you would like to see them. The Mystery of the Map photo booth had some of the island’s popular characters and props that you could use in your photo, with one example being in this tweet.

Another small side note is that the icons for the Menu box have changed some:

New Icons

Well, I think that’s it, Poptropicans! 😀

2 Books, 1 Release Date…

Do you guys remember the Poptopics Book Series? Well two new books from the series are coming out soon! The series is basically about was specific islands are about. I’m serious. For example…

Scary Monsters gives you the low down on the myths and legends behind the creatures you’ve encountered in your adventures on Cryptids Island, Vampire’s Curse Island, Zomberry Island, and more. All of these monsters have a basis in fact — and we’ll reveal them to you!

And…

Wild West is all about the amazing true history of the American frontier. Find out what parts of Wild West Island are made up, and which are based on fact. You might be surprised to learn which is which!

These books will come out on February 20. 🙂
