This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Big Crumb, a Poptropican who learned to appreciate Poptropica’s progress and still loves the game. See below for details on sending in your own MPIP!
Hello, fellow Poptropicans! This is Big Crumb, and my username is lazylady19. I wrote this MPIP because I thought it was fun to do! Hope you enjoy!
2011-2012 | An Amazing Discovery!
I made my amazing discovery of Poptropica back when I was in third grade, and it was the teacher who suggested it. Since I didn’t know how to spell it back then, I was quiet about it for a while. Until one day, while I was on Funbrain, I saw a Poptropica advertisement and I thought it would be fun to take a look, because of my teacher’s suggestion.
Of course, being the little stupid kid I was back then, I was very uncreative with usernames and I made a really random one like “lazylady19” [cringes] But I loved Poptropica. I played with my best friend at the time, who helped me solve islands. She also played a little part in my finding of Poptropica.
Like I said before, I LOVED Poptropica. Every day I would make myself a Poptropica goal and say “I’m going to complete this island today!” and sometimes I did… though most of the time I didn’t.
One year in, by 2012, I was literally obsessed with Poptropica! I had about 18 medallions (with the help of my friend of course) and I went on every day to see what was different and what new features had been added.
2013 | PHB Discovery
The islands seemed to get harder as I progressed through the game. I needed a walkthrough (especially for *cough cough* Skullduggery *cough*) I searched up some walkthroughs, but really wasn’t interested because it was all in video format.
But then I discovered a written walkthrough here on the Poptropica Help Blog, which gave me all the details on how to beat the islands! (I also made a WordPress account for this website!) I loved it a LOT. ❤ Love you PHB!
2014 | The Golden Age
Poptropica really improved around this time, and I was very, very interested. I didn’t play as much, but when I did, I cherished it. That was because there were many new islands that I thought were amazing and drastically better than before! The new islands also had demos for non-members, which made me want them to be released sooner, since I couldn’t play the full island as a non-member until after the members’ Early Access period.
2015 | Loss of Interest
Many more upgrades have caught my interest in Poptropica, but in 2015, I barely noticed those changes because I never played. Sometimes, I completely forgot about it. I didn’t play for 4 months since school started, since I was occupied with that.
I checked Poptropica to answer those pop quizzes, but I never actually played. Then one day, I decided to check Poptropica again, and noticed that some of the islands had gotten quite upgraded, plus there were new episodic islands! After all that time, I really didn’t think about how Poptropica could have progressed, but it sure proved that it had!
2016 | Starting to grow on me again!
Yes, Poptropica is starting to grow on me again. Probably not as much as when I started 5 years ago, but it is definitely growing on me again. I’m going into 9th grade and I love checking the PHB, going on Poptropica to complete islands again and again, and I love Poptropica! ❤ It’s been a very interesting trip for me, and I probably left out many, many details, but this is all I can remember for now. After all, it has been five years!
