Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and today, I have some rather maddening news for you all.
In all of your minds, what was the worst thing that ever happened to Poptropica? To some, it’s the onslaught of unoriginal islands that were released recently. For others, it’s the game’s departure from Pearson Inc. But for quite a large number of people in the community, it was the idea to make sponsored islands members only.
After all this time, the Creators have not only listened, but are responding to that bit of criticism. Introducing… March Madness! (thanks to PHC user AAA for the tip)
From now until the end of the month, March 31, you as a player can choose one members only sponsored island to be released for all again!
These choices, and you may have realized, are Nabooti Island, Big Nate Island, Great Pumpkin Island, Wimpy Wonderland Island, Red Dragon Island, Wimpy Boardwalk Island, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island! (By the way, courtesy of Charlie the Chocomonkey, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island is currently open to all for a limited time!)
To enter, simply go to any of the common rooms (or multiverse rooms) on Poptropica, click on the poster you’ll find inside, and cast your vote. Best yet, you can vote indefinitely – so choose your favorite and get to voting!
Bonus points: What island’s common room am I inside for the picture above?
In other news, Pi Day is almost upon us! And Poptropica is celebrating with a not so mathematically inclined new card. Simply log on, and you’ll collect this Cream Pie Toss item power. (Special thanks to WimpyKidFan for the heads up and the pictures coming up!)
UPDATE: Poptropica commented on this post to inform us that the pie item card was not supposed to be released until Monday, March 14 (Pi Day – 3/14). But hey, if you have it sooner, enjoy it! 😋
With it equipped, simply press spacebar to unleash your creamy vengeance upon Poptropica!
So, I can already tell you, my votes will be going towards Red Dragon Island – because honestly, I want to do cool ninja stuff again. But what about you? What island will get your support this month?
Until next time…
