Helloooo Poptropicans! There’s a new ad on Main Street of Early Poptropica Island for the upcoming sequel to Disney’s Planes (which of course is a spin-off of Cars); this new movie being Planes: Fire & Rescue, in theaters July 18, 2014. (thanks to CartoonSage for the tip!) Inside the ad, there are two games you can play, each awarding two prizes. Let’s fly in, shall we? 🙂
In the first game, Forest Stream Dippers, you have two minutes to put out 6 fires by clicking and holding above them with your plane (you can choose to be either Dusty or Dipper). However, first you’ll need to fill up your water supply by sitting on the river! It takes about 20 seconds to fill it all the way up, which, I should warn you, is valuable time gone in this game. Also, when you’re moving, don’t click and hold – just hovering your cursor is enough – otherwise you’ll waste precious water. For shame.
Anyway, if you’re successful in this Blimp Adventure-like adventure (unlike me, who had to retry this game quite a few times until I made it under the time limit) – you’ll win a Dusty Follower (the plane, not, you know, actual dust) and a Fire Stopper Power (which rains specks of orangey-red halfway down your screen).
In the second game, Cliffside Wildfires (is the Wildfire tribe causing trouble now? tsk tsk), you can choose to pilot Dusty, Dipper, Windlifter, or Blade. After dousing each fire (which gets progressively further and further to the right), you have to return to the base all the way on the left to recharge your ‘flame retardant’ before setting out again to put out the next fire.
If you win, you’ll be given a Dusty Cap (which, again, is not made of dust, but rather, features Dusty the plane) and a Hero Badge (which you can wear, plus press space bar to activate a sequence of planes zooming around the screen). Splendidly mediocre. I do have to say the Animacation ad offers better prizes, for those able to access it! 😛
Also, Poptropicans who log in may find two new ad items added to their inventories – girls will get an Alex Bailey costume, while boys get a Conner Bailey costume, and everyone gets a Fairy Kingdom follower. These items are for Chris Colfer’s The Land of Stories books. Upon using your two items, however, you’ll have a big advertising thought bubble over you, which kind of ruins it a bit.
Anyway, that’s it for these couple of ads! Enjoy the games and prizes! 😀
