- 20 Rarest Items
That's it. 2011 will be over in 7 hours (I live in California). It's amazing how fast a year is completed, isn't it? But no matter how fast 2011 was, it was packed with exciting Poptropica happenings. For one, Poptrickia was born March 16 (though it wasn't called Poptrickia then.) And so, allow me to bore you to death with Poptropica facts from this year...
Make your parents let you stay up 'till midnight, playing video games and hoarding Oreo ice cream cake! (at least, that's what I'm doing.) HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!! And we'll eagerly await Poptrickia's first birthday on March 18, 2012 (provided the world doesn't end before then.)
Finally, the last Scavenger Hunt is here! This one has a cool prize (for a change), but the clue looks tough. As always, the cheat is here for U.S. residents and here for people living in the U.K. The hints are:
The available options are easy, medium, and hard. Obviously the second one is MEDIUM, it fits right in! Both the other ones have A as their second letter, so... it's EASY or HARD. But which one? Remember, they can be used more than once! And now for...
S.O.S. Island pictures!
The goal of this island must be to run around the doomed boat, saving passengers and looking for clues. The top left picture shows the cast of characters that's been saved. And most of these previews look finalized, so does that mean we'll get this island very soon? Only time will tell...
This holiday season we're getting two new items: the Elf costume, which is free for all, and the Candy Cane snowball launcher, perfect for starting snowball fights in a multiplayer room! The Elf costume is green for boys and red for girls.
I was playing Legendary Swords today, and look what happened...
Can you believe it! I got to beat this entire level by pointing my mouse and moving... no jumping on platforms! Pretty fun. And Members, keep your eyes out for Save our Ship Island!
YES!!! I was right in my last blog post: the new island is themed on a (modern) ship. It's called S.O.S. Island and a lot of the early sketches have been finalized so it's coming very soon! You start off on a whale-watching cruise ship, but it hits an iceberg and begins to sink into the frigid North Atlantic. Can you save everyone before it's too late? This island seems to have a Titanic-themed story with a different style than the other islands. And in other news... the holiday-themed costumes are going to disappear soon, probably never to come back! So run over there as fast as possible and join in the fun! (Oh, and a new issue of the Magazine is coming out soon!)
Ghost Story island just released, but the Creators are already working on another island -- and this one looks like it's going to have an ocean cruise theme. Wait, what? Don't we have enough of that already? They're recycling old ideas now! Anyway, I have the sketches to prove it:
This island looks like it has a more modern look, though. We'll just have to wait and see.
Well, the Scavenger Hunts and Official Guide are getting old now, bu there's another one out! As always, the Scavenger Hunt cheat sheet is here. This week's question is:
After a month of wait, Ghost Story island is finally out for members! I'll post a walkthrough soon, but in the meantime you can watch this trailer.
And now presenting...
YES! Do you see the new icon near the top right? That must be the feature we've all been waiting for, the one with the Costume Closet and the place where you get your own house in Poptropica. Or, it might b the new Friends thing that might be coming soon.
Finally, the Creators have published that long-waited-for app for iOS and Android. I own an Android tablet so I downloaded it yesterday and it's great! I'm gonna buy all the other guides to make mine better. Oh, and have you noticed the Creators are doing more and more things to drive us Poptropica masters out of the guide-making business? I don't like it. Plus, Ghost Story comes in four days!
Anybody wondering why I've been off Poptrickia for a few days now? I'll tell you. MY MEMBERSHIP WAS RIPPED OFF, and so was my store of 1,300 credits. I lost EVERY SINGLE ITEM IN MY INVENTORY, including ALL ISLAND MEDALLIONS!!! *sigh* Enough about that now... there's something even more serious going on: Dr. Hare is on the loose again! This time in Singapore. It's getting serious, I tell you.
In time for the holiday season, the Creators have announced a new poster to their Zazzle store: a jumble of every Poptropican costume ever created. Personally, I think it looks like a piece of junk. Lucky people got 50% off on shirts on the first day of December. You can also fill out a new Holiday Wish List to ask for some Poptropica Christmas presents. And finally, three holiday-themed costumes are being re-released. But as you know, I'm pretty steamed at the Creators today... it's your job to talk me out of quitting Poptropica. Oh yeah, and... the Magazine is no longer monthly, it's QUARTERLY (every three months) cause it's too much work. Th Kursed Kwestion is becoming weekly, and on the same schedule as Guess Where I Am.
This is Poptrickia, serving you tips, tricks, cheats and more on the awesome game Poptropica for free since 2010! We've got this blog (we call it the Journal), full written walkthroughs for every island and quest in existence, and videos too!
