Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here along with some huge news — new pets are coming to Poptropica!
In 2016, Poptropica released pet packs—a dog pack and a cat pack—to members only, which weren’t very popular among players. But coming soon, Poptropica will have all-new pets in store for us in the Pet Barn! The Creators posted a sneak peek with five animals: a dog, cat, chameleon, goat, and bunny rabbit.
They’re so adorable! They’re probably the most adorable animals I’ve ever seen in Poptropica… which brings me to my next bit.
They don’t look quite “Poptropica” to me, if that makes sense. Compared to just about every other animal we’ve seen in Pop, they don’t really fit in — they look more suited to Worlds with the extra shading and thicker limbs if you ask me. Not really a complaint though, just an observation. 🙂
Also, the Blast-Off Arcade has been remastered and has officially opened! There are a few differences to be noted since the lase time it was open.
There have been a few minor design changes here and there, but the biggest difference would probably be with the Blaster Crazy game, or should I say, Blaster Attack.
Instead of being an ad game for the LEGO Star Wars play sets, it is now more original to Poptropica (and a little reminiscent of Astro-Knights Island in particular).
The gameplay is pretty much the same as before: first, choose a blaster, then, dodge and blast obstacles by moving your mouse around and pressing the space bar.
Lastly, an advertisement for Disney’s upcoming animated movie, Ralph Breaks the Internet, has surfaced and can be found on Home Island. There are two prizes to be earned, and to earn the first one, you must watch the video trailer. Go ahead and do that now… finished? 😉 Now onto the mini-game!
The mini-game is really easy, and mimics the one you’ve probably seen the little girl playing in the trailers for the movie on YouTube!
All you have to do is swipe the milkshakes to the cat, and swipe the pancakes to the bunny in the allotted time—without making more than seven mistakes. Don’t worry, the bunny won’t explode. 😜
Once you complete the game, you’ll win a Blockhead Transformer card and an awesome Vanellope Glitch Power card! Congratulations!
And that’s about it for now! What do you think about the Blast-Off Arcade? Are you going to watch “Ralph Breaks the Internet” in theaters next Wednesday? Most importantly, how do you feel about these new pets? Share it all in the comments below!
Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you in the next one… pop on!
