Get ready to be hit by a ton of updates…
Poptropica iPad App Updates
I have a lot of things to go over concerning the Poptropica iPad App. First of all, it’s coming out for Androids and iPhones soon! Pixel first posted about it on his blog, getting the info from Poptropica Official Twitter, but the info page for the app also houses the fact:
This means that, if I’m not beat to it by someone else, I’ll be able to make a review of the app soon! 😀 And, if you haven’t noticed, the Poptropica homepage now has a bunch of NPCs running by — with iPads in their hands! 😛 There are rumors that there is a hidden code in the app to redeem the iPad handheld, but rest assured, these are all rumors! No one really has any code.
And if that wasn’t enough, the Main Theme for the app has been uncovered on the Behind the Scenes page! Such melodic awesomeness. 😛 Jeff Heim also uploaded a new track to his Soundcloud — the Super Power Island Main Theme! You might recognize it from the app trailer.
You may also run into a survey link when you log in – but if you say that you don’t have an iPad, the survey abruptly ends. 😛
100 Times the Charm on Early Poptropica
My friend Pixel (whom I mentioned earlier, isn’t he on the ball? 😛 ) and I recently hit 100 replays on Early Poptropica. If you don’t believe us, my username is “puterpop”, and his is private — but you can check out the picture below for proof. I stopped at a 100, he went on and accomplished bigger feats. 😛
And speaking of medallions, the Survival Island – Episode 1 medallion has been added!
I might just be going crazy, but auto-generated NPCs (like on the Main Street of Early Poptropica) have been looking a little more complex lately. I think they’ve been updated with new clothing — the combinations are just different. Take a look and decide for yourself —
Now, think about it; have you ever seen an NPC (non-player character) with freckles, or those neat glasses that the first one has? Have you ever seen the 6th one’s kind of hair on an NPC — have your ever seen it anywhere, actually? Look at their mouths — they’re supposed to be generated by the start page’s options. NPCs are becoming more advanced, so it seems. What do you think?

Advertisement Updates: Mixels & Muppets
You may have heard about the new LEGO Mixels ad on Poptropica, but in addition to the two Mixel powers you get by going into the advertisement building, there’s also a costumizable Mixel Mask (alliteration ftw) card, featuring three different Mixels – grey, yellow, red:
I gotta say — these masks are pretty cool! They make up for the shabby “power” cards you can find in the building. 😛
You can also get the new Constantine Criminal Power by watching the trailer for the “Muppets: Most Wanted” movie. I found the ad on Time Tangled Island. When you press the “Steal Hair” button, a clip from the movie plays, then it cuts back to the screen.
You’ll now have a mole and suitcase, while everyone else on the page has a lack of hair! Hey, Muppets? Have you been getting ideas from Poptropica? 😛
What’s really cool is that you can press Ctrl+Shift+S (not on SUIs), which changes your skin color but lets you keep the mole and suitcase forever! It does something strange in the Costumizer, however. 😛
Also, don’t press Ctrl+Shift+S if you don’t want to lose your original skin color. If you do mistakenly change your skin color, you can always change it via the Colorizer card in the store. 😉
So, yeah. I hope you enjoyed this… thing. 😛 If you did, tell me in the comments!
And the meme of the day is…
