The Gifts That Would Be For Members Only

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with this month’s wintery member gifts and an advertisement.

If you’re currently a member, you’ll receive three winter styles upon logging in. Boys will receive outfits called Frosty, Ice, and Cool, and girls will receive outfits called MeowToasty, and Snugly.

Remember, if you purchase a membership any time within January, you’ll obtain all the member’s gifts (corresponding to your character’s gender).


Also, an ad for the upcoming movie, The Kid Who Would Be King (which premieres on January 25), can be found on various islands. Home Island or 24 Carrot would be your best bet.

There’s no game this time, but there are prizes. To get them, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer.

The prizes you’ll earn are King Arthur’s Sword and an Owl Transformation.

So, are you going to see The Kid Who Would Be King? What do you think about this month’s member gifts? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all soon… pop on!

Mary POP-pins returns to Poptropica

Hello, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with a practically perfect Photo Booth update for the movie everybody’s talking about—”Mary Poppins Returns.”

It’s just one new backdrop and three new props (including two human characters 🤷‍♂️). Fly a kite with Mary and Jack in front of a neat backdrop in this latest update. Check out my snapshot below featuring a festive Lucky Joker:

In addition to the Photo Booth update, an advertisement for the sequel film can be accessed via the island map. Simply watch the video, and you’ll receive a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Balloon Power which makes everyone around you float.

So, have seen the movie yet? What did you think of it? Let us know down in the comments (but no spoilers!).

Thank you for reading as always, I’ll talk you all in the next one. And to those who celebrate… have a Mary Christmas from the PHB, and from the Creators! Pop on!

Chat about the new LEGO Minecraft ad!

How’s it going, Poptropicans—it’s Lucky Joker here! Let’s pop into the latest news.

Over on Poptropica’s Instagram (@poptropicacreators), which seems to be the primary source of Poptropica news these days, we’ve got a bit of a “sneak peek” (if you want to call it that 😛 ) regarding the Blast-Off Arcade:

As the Creators’ post says, new chat features are coming to the arcade! That’s pretty cool. (Too bad it isn’t an island… it’s kind of been a while…) I wonder what the “gazillion other new things” they mention in the caption will be? Hmmm.


That’s not all. There are also a couple of new advertisements. Let’s start off with the LEGO Minecraft one, which can be found on Home Island.

The goal of the game is to escape the Creepers by dodging obstacles with the click of your mouse—without losing your six lives. (Tip: click multiple times for a higher jump)

Once you successfully make it to the finish, you’ll earn a batty Bat Follower and a Crazy Minecart. Cool!

For the next ad, Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, you can access it via the island map.  There’s no game for this one; all you have to do is watch the short video trailer to earn a Kite Power card. The movie premieres in theaters on December 19. 🙂

Well, that’s it for now! What do you think the new chat options will be like? Are you going to see the new Mary Poppins movie? Let us know down in the comments!

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon… pop on!

Breaking news: Pets are blasting off to Poptropica!

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.

PoptropicaPets

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.

Blast-Off! Arcade

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!

popralph.png

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!

Lego Island for all, new gifts for members, and costumes for the dead

Hey, guys! It’s time to leggo of our worries and gift ourselves with the knowledge of new updates. I promise you won’t feel dead after hearing about these!!! 😀 (I’ll see myself out… just kidding.)

The Creators have been busy updating Poptropica with new features and perks for all players. For example, Home Island was given a complete redesign less than two weeks ago, and the Blast-Off Arcade was accidentally released a mere two days ago! And now:

Lego Island has officially been released on Poptropica Original!

lego island map

It’s been almost nine months since the previous island, Greek Sea Odyssey, was released to players on Poptropica Worlds. Now, for the first time in forever, a new island has appeared, and on Poptropica Original nonetheless. We showed you unofficial sneak peeks before, and now you can access Lego Island from the map on Pop Original.

At this point, Lego Island consists of a Main Street scene containing three ads, each advertising a different Lego product. The three ads that are currently on Lego Island are for LEGO Boost, LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and LEGO Friends. The ads for Boost and Ninjago have already appeared before on Poptropica Original.

On the far right, you will find the ad for LEGO Boost. All you need to do is watch the video to get a Robot Cat Follower.

The ad to the right is for the LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series. Go inside and talk to Zane to start the mini-game. Repeatedly click your mouse to jump over the obstacles on the ground, and release to avoid the ones from above.

After completing the mini-game, you will win two awesome prizes: a Shadow Ninja costume and a Dragon Follower!

The ad on the far right is for LEGO Friends. Enter the building and talk to Stephanie to start the mini-game, which is a scavenger hunt. Your goal is to find the eleven items on your checklist.

After finding all eleven items, you will receive two items of your own: a Wind Surfboard and a Wave Runner.

These are the only ads on Lego Island at the moment. A recent post on the Creators’ Blog encouraged fans to check the island often as new items are added. It’s likely that more ads will appear and replace already existing ads on the island as updates come and go. If you’re paid member, you get to keep your prizes even after the ad campaigns end.


Speaking of paid members, new trio of member gifts have arrived just in time for November! As always, members will automatically receive these gifts upon logging into Poptropica Original. This month, members will receive a Wolf Costume, and Sheep Costume, and a Scarecrow Costume.  

november_member_gifts

One thing I want to mention is that these costumes are accessed through the Costumizer. This time, members can pick and choose what pieces of the costume they want to wear, as opposed to the whole costume being put onto the player. (Don’t worry, non-members. You can get the Wolf Costume by using this ASG😉 )  


Last but not least, the Creators’ Blog celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with a celebratory post on November 2. The post contained a brief description of the Mexican holiday along with its origins and traditions.

diadelosmuertos

If you like the costumes shown in the picture, you can get them for free in the store. The girls’ costume was designed by our very own Lucky Joker, the winner of Poptropica’s Halloween costume design contest! Be sure to get these costumes before the next store update comes and takes them away to the afterlife…

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Teen Titans Blast Off… to the Arcade!

Hello, Poptropicans, how’s it going? It’s Lucky Joker here along with the all-new Blast-Off Arcade on Home Island!

Just yesterday the arcade was accidentally released ( I say ‘accidentally’ because the “Coming Soon” tape has not yet been removed), and it’s been pretty popular so far. I’ve already gone in myself and must I say it looks out of this world! Here’s a full picture of the beta version from PHC frequent, idk:

Blast-Off Aracde.png

It’s worth noting that slight changes have been made to this version that makes it different to what we actually see in the game. Examples include the games Blasteroids!”Crash-Derby!” being changed to Blaster Crazy!” & “Crash-n-Bash!”, as well as more bouncy creatures being added all throughout the room. Let’s take a more thorough look into each of these games…

Head-to-Head:

In this machine are three of the eight classic multiplayer games we all know and love, which include: Balloons, Sky Dive, and Star Link.

Poptastic!:

In this single-player game, all you have to do is pop the balloons before they get to close simply by clicking on them.

poptastic game.png

Blaster Crazy!:

This single-player game looks to be an advertisement for the LEGO Star Wars play sets. First, choose player, then, dodge and blast obstacles by moving your mouse around and pressing the space bar.

Crash-n-Bash!:

This game is also an advertising single-player game  this time for the movie Cars 3. In this game, you have three character options to choose from, where you’ll race and dodge obstacles by moving your mouse around.


In less exciting news, a new ad has surfaced — this time for Teen Titans Go! from Cartoon Network — and is accessible via the island map.

There are two prizes to be collected, and to get them, you must watch the video advertisement for the first one, and play the game for the second one. After the video finishes, you are immediately taken to the game.

To complete the game, all you have to do is continuously press your space bar to blast upcoming obstacles without losing any of your six lives it’s pretty easy actually. 🙂

Once you do so, you’ll earn a really cool Beast Boy Power card and a Beast Boy Costume.

And that’s it for now! What do you think of the new arcade? Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon…pop on!

Incredible Suggestions Needed!

Hello, everyone, how’s it going? It’s Lucky Joker here, and good news: the Poptropica Creators want our feedback!

On Instagram and Facebook, the Poptropica Creators asked us, the players, to give our thoughts on Poptropica’s islands by commenting on their posts.

Unsurprisingly, most people wanted more new islands on Pop Original. I would strongly agree with that. But the Creators are also interested in knowing how they can make islands better, so be sure to leave them your suggestions!

Personally, though, I’d like to see Poptropica host another Create Your Dream Island Contest — because if the reason we’re not getting any new islands as frequently as we used to is due to a creativity/idea shortage, then I think it’s the perfect time for a second one. I’m sure any Poptropican would love a chance to have their island idea in the game!


In other news, there’s an advertisement for Disney·Pixar’s newest movie, Incredibles 2, which is accessible from the island map. It’s basically the exact same as the ad we saw before when we were still awaiting the movie’s premiere back in May.

The object is to escape the underminer by making it to the finish line while dodging and blasting obstacles without losing all six of your lives. Your lives are represented by the movie’s logo, which you’ll find in the top left corner along with a progress bar (to see how close you are to the finish).

Poptropica Incredibles 2

Once you complete the game successfully, you’ll earn a Grow Power card and Laser Eyes Power card (which we saw the last time). (The Grow Power card looks a little odd, but oh well. 😛 )

So what are your thoughts on Incredibles 2, and more importantly…what are your opinions on the islands of Poptropica?

That’s it for now! Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you all very soon…pop on!
