The Poptropica Creators will be releasing new items for the Poptropica Store every week during this summer! Incredible Fish got some cool pictures of the new Astronaut outfit that is currently in the Store for 75 credits:
The helmet’s lights will light up when you press the space bar. This is what the astronaut looks like when the lights are off (see left Poptropican)…
…and when it’s on! (Image below is from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.)
Blog Post Title: Summer Store Fun!
Description: We will be releasing new store items every week during the summer!
For this week we’ve added two new items: Multiverse and a new Astronaut outfit.
As many of you know the Creators visted some or your Multiverse rooms. It was really cool chatting and battling with many of you, but sadly a few of you totally destroyed us at some of the games…Ouch!

Check out the post below to learn more about the Multiverse, a new dimension of Poptropica. Once again, I visited some more Multiverse rooms from PHB and PHF users! In Graham’s (Spotted Bubbles’s) Enchanted Forest room, I met Spotted Bubbles (Graham), and Curious Fang (known as Trusty Hawk on PHB). Graham left after awhile, but Curious Fang and I were still chatting with eachother when Dr. Hare, a Poptropica Creator, showed up!
Dr. Hare is the first Creator I’ve met so far, and I’m hoping to meet the rest soon enough! Hare has a 4-star battle ranking, and according to Curious Fang (who was dressed up in Binary Bard’s jester outfit but carrying a sword), Dr. Hare beat her in Soupwords and Paint War (but she beat him in Sudoku twice!). When I tried to Costumize him, it turned out only his teeth (with the big tooth sticking out) could be copied.We also chatted with the Creator, and he in turn asked us some questions. After some time, Dr. Hare Curious Fang had to leave.
Soon, however, someone else came in. I got to meet Green Seal (known as Sparkle Star on PHB and on her Poptropica Updates Blog!), and we had fun chatting and playing games like Paint War, which she won. Congratulations! When we met, Green Seal was wearing her pink Electrify, which you can recognize in the photos I compiled from my Enchanted Forest Multiverse adventure here:
I also met some other guys from the PHF chatroom in some Crystal Cavern Multiverses. (One of the pics below shows Graham, Curious Fang, and I in his Enchanted Forest, which I mentioned above.) Yesterday, I saw Zany Glove, Lucky Spider (MonkeyTacoz), Squeezy Monster (and his clone, Skinny Chicken). Maroon Fly, another one of Monkey’s accounts, also joined in later, and so did a jovial fellow named Happy Spider. (I also found out that Invisible Bean, who I mentioned in the post below, was also another one of Taco’s accounts!)
Today I met Shoeless Runner, Silly Owl (known as Incredible Fish), Short Sun (or Technonerd), Shy Turtle (”Anti SG”), and a few others at Incredible Fish’s Multiverse. Maroon Fly wandered in again, this time dressed as Pinocchio. We later all met up at the top floor to take a jumping snapshot – speaking of which, did you know there’s a glitch up there which lets you jump up and down nonstop? Try it!
Update: A few hours later, I met some more PHB readers in Skinny Snowball’s Enchanted Forest room! Congratulations to Speedy Hawk (who also tried to Costumize me!), Moody Wolf, Young Skunk, Trusty Bubbles, Green Sword (known as Bashful Octo on the PHB), Zany Thunder (also known as Poptropicalthunder), Dangerous Shark (accidentally got covered in the first picture, but I left some space for you on the side!), Friendly Hopper, Skinny Snowball (owner of this Multiverse room), and Nice Turtle! Here’s everyone I saw gathered at the cool room:
Also, the bottom part of the Poptropica.com homepage has gotten a makeover! Thanks for the news, Lazy Feather. And apparently, Reality TV Island is missing from the game’s map now! Some think that the island is being abandoned like Monster Carnival Island was, and others think it means that RTV is close to completion, which would mean that this is temporary. We still don’t know for sure what’s up, but we all hope for the second option!
But part of the homepage update shows that instead of the RTV hippie asking you to sign up to be informed of TV Island’s release, it just says ”next Poptropica island”, and the picture has changed to an envelope. It looks like the Creators are ignoring the existence of Reality TV Island, which had been set to come out in summer 2009. What do you think is going on?
There has recently been a rumor about the caterpillar on Shark Tooth Island being gone. (For those who have completed the island’s quest, you’ll know what ‘caterpillar’ I’m talking about.) This caterpillar was formerly on one of the statues in the Temple Dungeon, and if you bumped into it, it would knock you over.
We can now confirm that this obstacle has been removed from the game, making it much easier to finish the island. Our Shark Tooth Guide has been updated to suit this change.
You may have noticed a change in one of our Poptropica Help Blog sidebar widgets. The ”Recent Comments” section has been updated, and now it will show the Wavatar of the commenter. We’re hoping that this feature will make it easier to recognize the person, since you might often remember a blog commenter by their picture. A Wavatar is the WordPress avatar of a commenter here, and it is usually randomly generated.
In other news: The competition for Grumpy Wolf’s Poptropica account will be hosted soon. More details will soon follow. By the way, we might be making a Multiverse room for the PHB!
