Beta Testers at your service, Creators!

*salutes*

That’s right, members! BETA Carrotene Island is now available for Poptropica Members to test and enjoy! (If you need a reminder or help on this island, check out the PHB’s 24 Carrot Island Guide!)

24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is now available!

Let the testing begin! 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is now available to Poptropica Members. This is your chance to get a sneak preview of the next generation of Poptropica, while also helping us make important improvements.

To play 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island, grab the Gold Card from the Poptropica Store (pictured above). Or just click on the slide on your Welcome Back page. The beta test is for Poptropica Members only, so if you’re not a Member, find out how to become a Member today!

Remember, although there are a lot of new features to try out, like a soundtrack and a bigger screen, the beta is still missing some things you’re used to, like the costumizer and the ability to save your game. Fear not, those features will be returning!

Also, the cursor is not staying that way.

So head on over to Poptropica to play 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island and check out all the great new features we’ve got coming up!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

So I got the chance to play BETA Carrotene, and let me tell you- it was rather different. First of all, I am in love with the music and the mood it sets (my favorites tracks are the Factory Exterior and Dystopia Main Street tracks). The sound effects are cool, when they’re not annoying (ahem, the mouse in the sewage pipes).

However, while playing BETA, I noticed that the maneuvering of my character as compared to the background is a little off. I found myself shifting different directions a couple of times and at times I found my character frozen (especially after playing the minigame where you crash Dr. Hare’s rabbot into the asteroids, but he unfroze after a period of ime), but these glitches can be fixed later. After all, it IS a beta test, so it isn’t going to be perfect. Well, the good news is that from my perspective, the island is, luckily, playable. Glitchy, but playable.

Also, is it me, or does it look creepy when the characters’ eyes go all like this when they talk?:

Also, it seems that the Creators caught our annoyance with the common room cursor and stated “Also, the cursor is not staying that way,” in its own separate paragraph. Phew, that’s a relief.

What do you guys think?

BT out!

    It’s actually pretty cool! Still, I’m STUCK on the part where you use the crowbar to get in the thing! 😦 Whenever I try, I can’t because the water (err… not really water) won’t let me! *SIGH* Oh well, I’ll keep trying! 😉 I am SO HAPPY that common room cursor won’t be there, because it is honestly driving me crazy. I also WISH we could save our game (or at least pause it), but we can’t, so I better find a way to get in, otherwise I’ll be at it all night! Hopefully I get some stroke of luck and do it by accident. 🙂 Still, LIKE how the game is going so far! 😉

    LOL, I just played after eating pancakes with chocolate chips (I know, not a very nutritious dinner, but still) I was trying the crowbar again and this time it worked while I was jumping from the water! 🙂 You guys should have seen it. Anyways, at least now I can continue! 🙂 24 Carrot Beta Carrotene rocks! 🙂

    I completed the BETA Test too, and I really enjoyed the Main Street music. I did have to start over one time with a glitch, but like you said, it is a BETA test. I really liked the bigger screen, too.

    To be honest, I was a little confused when I read “Also, the cursor is not staying that way.” on the PCB. I wasn’t sure whether they meant our regular cursor or the common room one. Reading this post cleared about the cursor thing.

    I’m actually pretty excited about the new version of 24 Carrot. I’m a little scared about whether I’ll like it or not…

    The characters’ eyes look as if they’re worried, scared, or sad. That’s how I see it anyway. It helps set the mood for this island. There’s corruption, economy has dropped, it’s almost like you’re living during the Great Depression.

    I’m not a member BTW. 😛

    I’m actually just fine with the common-room cursor. Especially because it works differently than the Common Room cursor.
