The New World of Poptropica is coming…

Hey there, Clawtropicans! It’s me Purple Claw, and I’m here to share with some really important news that have to do with the mighty future of Poptropica. Please read the rest of this post for more details.

I was out in the snow for a few hours, and after that, I logged into Discord and received a notification from the Cacti Pop Chat (I swear TC didn’t pay me to advertise her server) and when I clicked on the icon of the server, I literally went crazy. Now, let me express the way I feel right now.

Yes, that’s me when I’m way to excited. Don’t judge me. Evil spirits shall rise upon you. Anyway, I almost forgot to mention what was the thing that made me so hyped up, and that thing is… THE POPTROPICA WORLDS!! 

That’s pretty darn different than the Poptropica we know, right? I don’t know what to say about this, it’s both good and bad to me. I’m having mixed feelings right now and I don’t know if it’s going to be awesome or a complete disappointment. But we’ll just have to wait and see…

Anyway, the ”Poptropica Worlds” will release in Spring 2017 and the Creators say it’s going to be awesome! It better be, or else…! By the way, make sure check out the list below copy-pasted directly from the Creators’ blog for more details below. 😛

That’s right — only test dummies are allowed into Poptropica Worlds right now! Once the Poptropica Scientists — er, Creators — get the fun factor just right, Poptropica Worlds will be open for all Poptropicans to enjoy! Get ready for…

  • New, exciting Worlds to explore
  • Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
  • One account for everything Poptropica!
  • Your very own customizable home (remember this poll?)
  • More costumes than ever
  • Daily prizes and awesome games
  • And more to come…
Over the next few months we’ll give you some peeks behind the scenes of Poptropica Worlds, right here on the blog. So stay tuned and get psyched — Poptropica Worlds is coming your way!

I don’t know what you think (well, at least not yet), but I’m super hyped about the future of Poptropica! I’d also really want to hear your thoughts, so make sure to tell me what you think in the comment section below! Thanks for having time to read this short post! That was Purple Claw, signing out ’til my next post!

Thursday Topping: Top 5 Poptropica MiniQuests

ttopping

Hey there, Clawtropicans! It’s me Purple Claw, and I’m here to share with you an interesting top 5 list! Today, I’m going to be topping five of my favorite Poptropica MiniQuests. Anyway, if you didn’t know it yet, MiniQuests are special adventures not found on the island map! Now, let’s get started with the list, shall we? 😉

5. Haunted House

Step foot inside Poptropica’s creepiest creation – if you dare. In the darkest reachest of the Haunted House, you’ll find creepy critters, poltergeists, and painted portraits that watch your every move. Can you make it through the night without being scared out of your wits?

Even though this quest isn’t as spoopy as it sounds, it’s still worth giving it a shot! It’s the perfect way to spend the Halloween night, if you don’t like trick or treating. Why am I talking about Halloween anyway? Isn’t it, like, over? Anyway, there are so many things that make this MiniQuest awesome; the story, the design, the characters, and the gameplay were just terrific! If you beat the quest, you’ll get a Zombify gold card, that turns people into zombies! You’ll also have access to costumize everyone at the Ghoul’s Gala.

4. Shrink Shot

The object of the game is to bounce your miniaturized Poptropican around a room, causing as much mayhem as you can to rack up big points. Achieving high scores will earn you bonus powers that will help you score even more points! Can you unlock all of the upgrades and win the grand prize?

Reasons why I think this MiniQuest deserves to be on this list:

1) It’s creative;

2) The colors and graphics are great;

3) It’s so much fun!!

Yeah, I personally think that this quest deserves to be on this list! There are also tons of prizes you can earn by playing it!

3. Legendary Swords

On a distant planet, a hero explores a strange land to discover a race of aggressive and bizarre robots who are planning an invasion of Planet Poptropica! The only way the hero can stop this invading force is by using a series of hidden mystical swords that are scattered throughout the planet. Driven by courage (and a little fear), the hero must stop the invading robots and their diabolical master; the mysterious E. Vile!

This MiniQuest had to appear somewhere on this list! You got to admit: It’s amazing! I love the story, the characters, the graphics, the swords, the evil robutts (wink wink) and E.Vile! Everything was incredible! I have nothing else to say about this wonderful MiniQuest.

2. DC Diner

Poptropicans are all getting ready to board the train to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893! Before they hop on the train, they want to grab a quick bite to eat at the D.C. Diner!

I’m sure many of you haven’t even heard about this one before – and I hadn’t either ’til I started writing this post! I found it out on Poptrickia, a blog with interesting tips ‘n’ tricks. So, basically, you just take orders from random people and then you have to serve them what they want. It’s a really cute minigame and had a super fun time playing it!

1. Blimp Adventure

Travel to the edges of Poptropica and beyond with your own inflatable, 30-inch Poptropica blimp. Players who get the Poptropica blimp will unlock an exclusive in-game adventure!

This might seem odd, but I actually loved this MiniQuest! It was just so much fun! Those five levels of fire shutting were five super awesome terrific adventurus levels, at least for me. I loved the villain, the story, the backgrounds, in other words, I loved everything!

Going Back in Time: January’s IotMs

Hey there, Poptropicans!

It’s Happy Lobster here. So, a new month is kicking in, and what does that mean? Yet another month for the community to moan and groan about the overdue New Pop? Well, possibly, for those who feel like doing so … but it’s also time for another set of Islands of the Month!

The islands featured this January are Time Tangled Island and Arabian Nights. Looks like the Creators want us to visit some islands submerged in the past this time around.

january-poptropica-islands-of-the-month

As per usual with IotMs, Poptropica gives out the usual amount of extra credits for finishing IotMs: first-time finishers receive 500 credits for completing the islands in question, and repeat finishers receive 300 credits.

But Arabian Nights is not an normal island – it consists of three seperate episodes. So, how will the credits be distributed for finishers? Like for one of December’s IotMs, PoptropiCon (another episodic island), each episode gives out 500 and 300 credits for first-time finishers and re-players, respectively. So if you complete each episode for the first time, you can receive 1,500 credits! It’s about time you were rolling in credits.

Need help completing these islands? Well, Captain Crawfish has some video walkthroughs prepared for Arabian Nights, and is working on one for Time Tangled.

If you want written walkthroughs to assist you, you can always read the PHB’s guides to Time Tangled Island and Arabian Nights.

Well, that’s all for January’s IotMs. Make sure to hurry and earn those extra credits this month!

Behind the Scenes: Wimpy Wonderland Animations

Hey there, Clawtropicans! Purple Claw here! I’m here to share with you some behind the scenes info posted by Skinny Moon on the Creators’ blog yesterday. Before I start, I wanted to wish y’all a happy new year! Now, let’s get started right away!

Wimpy Wonderland on Poptropica.jpg

I’m pretty sure you know that Wimpy Wonderland was one of December’s IofM, but, since it’s a members only island, and it’s a pretty cool one too, the creators announced that everyone can still play it through 1/2/17 (and you’ll get the bonus credits too)! So, if you haven’t played this awesome island yet, make sure to do that, because it’s awesome!

Anyway, let’s take a look at the sneak peaks, shall we?

Check out these notes on Manny’s design! It looks like it took longer than expected to design that naughty kid! (By the way, click here to make this image bigger)
