It has finally come -- the event we've all been waiting a year for -- the release of Poptropica Worlds! (Well, it actually happened a couple days ago, but it takes me a while to emerge from my slumber, OK?). What's new about this monumental update, you might ask?
- Currently, the major problem is the controls -- they are ridiculously frustrating and unresponsive. Now I wouldn't consider my laptop the epitome of modern hardware, but it's a decent 2.5 GHz Intel i5 (with the integrated graphics card; yes I know, you may all mock me now). Poptropica is primarily frequented by young kids though, who shouldn't be expected to have high-end hardware.
- That said, although your mileage may vary of course, I have had the best experience with Firefox. It uses the least amount of memory while also using multiple cores, unlike Chrome or Edge.
- And only once did the game get legitimately stuck, at which point I had to reload the page. Thankfully, I barely lost any progress, which is more than can be said for some of the previous updated islands!
