Mighty Gamer here with another sneak peeks post. Credit goes to idk for the video and xml file, which I’ll share first, and Teen Arachnid for more mini-game sneak peeks.
Before going on about this, there’s some new information from idk that has come to light: Crisis Caverns Island is currently cancelled. Disappointing, but at least it’s the truth.
And from here on out, let’s remember to take any unofficial sneak peeks with a grain of salt – while they may be seen in the Poptropica files, they may not always become reality in the game. With that being said, let’s try to enjoy these sneak peeks!
Here’s a new Crisis Caverns video, which is of a room called “Secret Cave”, whatever that could really mean! I love the design. What do you think?
Somewhere throughout the video, you might have seen a couple stacks of stone. I thought it looked similar to the cheese in the trash can on Shrink Ray Island. I’m sure it’s only a coincidence, but it was just a little something I noticed.
You won’t believe what’s in this xml file. Yes, yes. It’s another xml file. But this one has something interesting. As you read through it, you should find this line: “Congratulations! You have completed the Crisis Caverns Episode 1 quest.” Perhaps they were making another episodic adventure, or just using that as a template, but again, since the island is cancelled (at least for now), it doesn’t matter. 😦
Here are some sneak peeks for Game Jam, an unreleased mini-game mentioned in a previous PHB post. In the game, you defend yourself by using musical instruments. And as you can see, there are 5 Poptropicans at the bottom (pictured below) those of which you control.
You have to click at least twice to take out the closest light blue Zomberry in a column. For the dark purple Zomberries, you have to click about five times. But if you let the zombies get to the bottom, of course, the game will end. That’s every survival game, right? Here is a popup that will appear if you lose the game:
In this mini-game that takes place on Zomberry Island, several zombies amble towards you, these are only a few of the many trying to attack you. You protect yourself with a single catapult… I guess it’s Catapult vs Zombies here, not Plants vs Zombies.
This is the catapult. There is a conveyor belt right below it, bringing things like trash, bags, sinks, rocks, etc. to your catapult. To progress in the game, you must use those items to knock out the zombies coming at you.
But there’s a catch! You can’t see the zombies as their coming, so it makes it a lot more difficult to aim for them. Once a zombie gets to you, of course, you’ll lose and have to start over. Interesting game, right?
That’s all for this post! What do you think of it? Like or dislike? Let me know in the comments below.
See ya soon!
