So long (Fuzzy-B)

Hey guys. Due to the huge amount of work I have from AP classes, band, and other activities, I haven’t had time to post here. Since I don’t have time to post, I might as well let someone else have the chance. I’ve loved posting, chatting, and hanging out with you guys, but my time here has ended. So long. 😦

Blast to the Past, Episode 2: Creators’ Favorite Islands

Hello PHB community, and welcome back to my Blast to the Past series! This episode we look at what the Creators’ favorite Islands are! Some of you may remember this as a week long series on the PCB two years ago from that lasted from July 20th to July 27th 2012. For those who don’t remember this, some of these picks are actually really surprising!

Can you match the Creator with their favorite Island? Remember, these can get pretty surprising.

Ready for the answers? Scroll down to see how many you got correct!

A lot of them are not what you would expect! If you didn’t want to play the matching game, or just want to see the Creators’ picks without having to go check out the answers, here is a list of their picks:

  1. Master Mime – (D) Wild West Island
  2. Dr. Hare – (C) Skullduggery Island
  3. Comic Kid – (B) Vampire’s Curse and Wild West Island
  4. Director D – (E) Cryptids Island
  5. Captain Crawfish – (A) Red Dragon Island

Can you believe that Dr. Hare likes Skullduggery more than Captain Crawfish? Who would have guessed that Director D. was such a fan of urban legends? I also talked to some of the other PHB authors recently and found out what some of their favorite Islands are at the moment:

HPuterpopMocktropica Island – Mostly because the references and the style of the island. It really feels like an original island. Also, the boss battle. And the music. And breaking the fourth wall. And the humor and animation and NARFS.

Samwow5 – I like a lot of them, but my favorite is probably Survival Island. I love the episode idea and I love camping, so this island is for me!

Fuzzy-B – As much as I love the look, feel, and story of Counterfeit Island and Skullduggery Island, my favorite has to be Astro-Knights Island because I feel that the game-play and story is the best out of all 39 Islands so far!

How many Creators’ picks were you able to get right? What do you think of their picks, and some of the PHB authors’ picks? What’s your favorite Island? Sound off below with what you think!

Blast from the Past, Episode 1: Superstars

Hey PHB readers! I’m starting a new series here on the PHB called “Blast from the Past” where I showcase interesting things from Poptropica’s history.

For some of the more long term readers, this is going to be a walk down memory lane, inspiring some nostalgia. For some of the newer readers, this may be the first time they encounter some of the awesome things Poptropica has done!

SUPERSTARSAAAAGAGGHHHHHHHHH

The first episode of this new series is titled Superstars. As some of you may have guessed, this has to do with the five “Superstars” of Poptropica. Three years ago exactly to the date, the Poptropica Creators started a week-long series of posts showcasing some of, who they deemed, Poptropica’s greatest players. These players included Grumpy Icicle, Fierce Moon, Grey Icicle, Quiet Boot, and Sporty Boa, some of whom were avid PHB readers!

These players had achieved some pretty amazing feats such as being in the top ten island finishers for Shrink Ray Island, winning 93 games of Sky Dive, and being undefeated in the Prepare for Impact mini-game. The Creators even gave Fierce Moon’s blog, Poptropica Cheats and Secrets, a subtle shout out.

Back in the day, everyone wanted to be the next superstar. People posted their “superstar resumes” on their blogs, and even in the comments here on the PHB.

Do you remember the PCB’s Superstars, or is this all new to you? Let me know about that and what you think of this new series in the comments below.

Glitch alert: how to fly on any SUI

Hey guys, Fuzzy-B here! I have found a new glitch that allows you to fly on any SUI (sound-updated island)! You should probably enjoy this as soon as you can, as it will most likely get fixed fairly soon. Now that we have the formalities out of the way, let’s get into how to fly on any SUI!

WHAT YOU NEED: First, you need to get the Conner Bailey (boys) or Alex Bailey (girls) advertisement card and customize the sword (or wand, for girls). When I logged in it was given to me automatically, so it should be in your inventory automatically when you log in.

HOW TO FLY: The next part is fairly simple and it’s how you fly. Point your arrow in the direction you want to go, then jump and rapidly pump the space bar. You are now flying across the screen as if you are on Super Power Island!

What do you think of being able to fly on any SUI? Pretty awesome, right? Be sure to check out the PHB’s cheats page for more cool glitches, and let me know what you think in the comments!

Cosplay at Poptropi-Con, the next frontier!

Hey everyone! Remember my last post about how the next island will probably have a city theme (possibly based on San Francisco due to the bridge and palm trees)? Well, there’s more…

Thanks to some clever connections by PHB authors and readers, we may have even more information about this new island, which appears to involve some sort of Poptropica convention where Poptropicans have taken up cosplay (costume play)! Check out these recent Daily Pops showing off some pretty good (and pretty bad) Poptropica cosplays of characters from various islands!

conDailyPops

This may be inspired by the yearly San Diego Comic Con, which takes place in, you guessed it, San Diego. It is a giant convention for everything comics, featuring comic books, toys, movie announcements, and some legendary cosplay.

For those unaware, cosplay (short for costume play) is when a fan dresses up as their favorite character. Of course, this could be really good, or really, really bad…

So we have cosplay and a city setting probably in southern California — what could this mean? As predicted by others, I am going to say this will concern some sort of (San Francisco?) Poptropica Convention. But that doesn’t have a good ring to it! How about the Poptropi-Con? Much better!

And here we have a Daily Pop sneak peek of the actual convention center which is sporting some nice “con” signs. This image serves as final confirmation that the new island is indeed some sort of Poptropica Convention (Poptropi-Con?).

So what do you think? Are you excited for a new Comic-Con based island? What do you think the plot could be about? Do you think Poptropi-Con has a good ring to it? Share your ideas in the comments below!

Fishing Suit now in the Store, and some new city settings!

Hey everyone, after a (not so short) hiatus, I finally have finals, tests, projects, etc. out of the way and can be active in the community again!

As previewed by HP in a post earlier this week (along with many other awesome things – so check it out if you haven’t), the new Fishing Suit has been (officially) released for Survival – Episode 2. It is currently free in the Store for everyone, so make sure to go claim yours! (The Fishing Suit can also be found on a tree trunk in Episode 2.)

As always, there have been some interesting new Daily Pops. Sometimes these Daily Pops can give away a lot about upcoming islands. They helped us figure out that  “Mall” (Night Watch), “Movie” (Back Lot), “Monster” (Monster Carnival), and “Winter” (Survival) islands were all being prepared for release, and now it appears that the next island will have a city theme to it!

As you can see, the Portable Toilets, Pizza Pocket Truck, and vending machines, along with all the background imagery gives away that the creators are working on a new city themed project! What city, you may ask? I predict it will be San Francisco, or a city based on San Francisco. The second image gives it all away. In the background, behind the pizza truck we see a bay with a bridge over it. This bridge might just be San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge!

So what do you think? Are you excited for a new San Francisco-based island? What do you think the plot could be about? Share your ideas in the usual place below!

PHB Sneak Peeks: Upcoming Friendly Features

Spoiler warning: If you don’t want to learn what some of the upcoming features on Poptropica will be, then don’t read this post. If you do, however, then read on! (Note: Just because this post has been made does not mean the Creators will scrap a project they’ve worked hard on! No hate, please.)

Spoiler5

Still here? Ready to get a sneak peek into the future of Poptropica? Here we go, let the post begin!

Through some recently uncovered pictures, we may have a look at some of Poptropica’s upcoming features! Here we have an example of what will come to be known as a Badge Album when it is released. This one specific album is part of a bigger feature to be released.

Spoiler1

There you have it! It appears that there will be an addition to the Friends feature in the near future. It features your Poptropica Avatar, your name, your battle ranking, and your Island Medallions. But what are those at the bottom? Those would be the various Badge Albums.

Spoiler4

There are four types of badges that you can earn: Collector, Socializer, Explorer, and Competitor. If I had to guess, I would assume that each  badge type was related to the following aspects of the game:

  • Collector relates to either how many items you have, or how many hidden items you have found within the game.
  • Socializer relates to how many friends you have, how much time you spend in common rooms, or how many times you chat and battle.
  • Explorer relates to how many islands that you have started or completed.
  • Competitor relates to your battle ranking/how many mini-games you have won, how many island medallions you have won, or how many times you have completed each island.

There is also another little feature hidden away in this new way to show off all of your achievements, a way to not show off your achievements! In the bottom left corner, you can see this privacy lock.

spoiler3

This allows for you to hide your Friends page and profile. You can either have your profile shown to everyone, just your friends, or (presumably) not at all.

Spoiler2

It appears that only time will tell all of the secrets that this badge feature has hidden away.

What do you think of all of this, are you excited to collect some badges? Are you gonna try to earn every badge? How do you even earn badges? Are you going to hide away all of your stats or show them off to the world? Sound off bellow with your thoughts about this new feature.
