Heyo Poptropicans! Purple here with fresh news: the long-requested but never before seen Spongebob Island has appeared on the map!
According to the creators, fans have petitioned them, sent them letters, and made posts across social media in the hopes of one day seeing Atlantic City in Poptropica. And now, on time with the release of “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run,” SpongeBob’s arrived! To access Spongebob Island, find it near Snagglemast on the map — or enter it through the ads in the in-between scenes on any island.
Upon landing in the glorious underwater world of Atlantic City, you’ll find Spongebob himself waiting for you with a mission. His pet snail Gary’s gone missing, and he needs you to follow the suspicious slime trail and find the lost snail!
As you follow the trail, it’s difficult not to get distracted by the prizes and attractions surrounding you! It couldn’t hurt to stop by the movie theater on your way to grab the SpongeBob’s Boat prize and indulge in a fun game of Snack Attack.
The rules of Snack Attack are simple: you’re given 4 minutes on the clock to gather 70 movie snacks from various places around the room. Once you’ve finished picking up as much popcorn, soda, and candy as you can, you’ll be rewarded with two prizes: the SpongeBob Follower (who’s as big as your character) and Character Emojis (press space bar to say some of SpongeBob’s iconic phrases).
If collecting all those snacks made you hungry, hop on up to the top of the Snack Attack theater, where you’ll find Patrick Star enjoying a delicious Krabby Patty or two! Crank the lever to unleash a torrent of Krabby Patties falling from the sky. 🍔
Run further along down the road — passing Mr. Krabs and his pincers of money on the way — and you’ll find Sandy Cheeks waiting with three familiar head-to-head mini-games: High Dive (Sky Dive), Star Link, and Bubble-loons (Balloons), all fashioned to fit the SpongeBob ocean theme. Think you’ve got what it takes to beat your opponent?
Now, that’s all very enjoyable, but enough fun and games — we can’t forget the missing snail Gary and his snaking slime trail! Follow the snail trail all the way up to the huge pair of dice on the rooftop, where you’ll find Gary with a pair of Character Balloons. Go ahead and grab those balloons; they’ll be added to your inventory as a bonus prize. Huzzah!
Now that you’ve seen all there is to see on SpongeBob Island, take a look at the Creators’ other exciting announcement: they’re going to be giving away 5 one-year memberships to the makers of the funniest videos involving SpongeBob Island! If you’ve been hoping for a chance to win a free membership, then this is your opportunity to get creating. Or, if you don’t win this time around, you could always enter in the PHB’s monthly membership giveaways instead!
Welp, that’s just about all for today! Were all the games and prizes fun enough for you, or was your vacation to Atlantic City not what you’d hoped for? Are you planning on entering the SpongeBob video contest? Comment your opinions down below!
