Arrr you going to save the kingdom with your pencil? Four new books for the adventurous Poptropica reader!

Poptropica’s been hard at work, and 4 new books are expected to be released on November 8th, 2012. Of course… not to brag or anything… but the PHB had already been posting about it months before! (see here, here, or here) Anyway, now we’ve got some blurbs for the books, and you can click on the title to check it out on Amazon. 😛

Skullduggery Island: In this 160-page illustrated novel, a cruel pirate named Captain Crawfish has been raiding the small port of Fort Ridley. Our hero must embark on a journey to find a powerful ship and skilled crew to help him defeat Captain Crawfish and recover a map that will lead the islanders of Fort Ridley back to their treasure.

Astro-Knights Island: In this 160-page illustrated novel, the princess of the Kingdom of Arturus has been kidnapped by an evil inventor named Mordred who has taken her off into space. Our hero now must learn to build his own space craft and travel to the stars on an intergalactic quest to rescue the princess and save the kingdom of Arturus.

Pencil Warrior: Something sinister is erasing its way across Poptropica, and the only way to stop it is by re-drawing all the islands and re-creating the world before this new threat can erase every trace. This 64-page full-color doodle book is perfect for fans of Poptropica and anyone who loves to draw.

Poptropica Mad Libs: Poptropica Mad Libs features 21 hilarious and action-packed stories based on games and missions from the website. Fans of the site will love to bring the adventure to life by filling in the blanks of our brand new Mad Libs!

This makes 5 books, in addition to the first Poptropica book, Poptropica: The Official Guide, which was released last year. Do you own a copy of the guidebook? Which one of these new books do you plan to add to your bookshelf? 😀

The Faces of Evil in the Hearts of Darkness… Perfect…

Really. Really. Perfect. -_-

The official description for Super Villain Island has been released, and here’s what it says:

Deep inside a top-secret prison, four of Poptropica’s most infamous villains float in suspended animation. Your mission: to infiltrate their minds and extract the sources of their evil. Can you withstand a journey to the heart of darkness, or will their twisted dreams trap you forever?

Yikies. Sounds really, really dark… and as if you think the 4 twisted minds aren’t enough, if you’re a member, you have ONE MORE to worry about. Doesn’t exactly say who, either.

The world may be safe, but another villain stirs in his slumber. Do you dare to enter the dream machine once more, and visit a nightmarish version of one of the most popular Poptropica Islands?

I originally had a feeling the nightmare-ish island will be Shark Tooth (see Daily Pop: Breaking News), but Serious Shadow has reverted the picture for the bonus quest to normal and look at this:

That looks like Mythology Island’s Mount Olympus! *thinks* Now that I think about it, Mythology Island IS a very popular island…

And here are the members only items:

So let me get something straight…

We… are going… via dream machine… into the villains’ minds?!? And I have two questions:

  1. How did Dr. Hare get out of space?
  2. How did the Binary Bard get back to Poptropica without the orb?

I’m kinda confused, but all I know it’s about delving into the twisted minds of the four (five for members) villains and getting rid of their source of their insanity/evil. Like I said earlier, it sounds dark… but we can do it!!

BT out!

Caught in a hare-ball

As you probably know, four of Poptropica’s big-name villains will be returning for the upcoming epic “Super Villain Island,” which the PHB has a discussion page for here. 24 Carrot Island was the first time we saw Dr. Hare, and if you haven’t played that yet, check out our walkthrough here!

Want to defeat these vile villains now, before they return? Check them out at:

  • Dr. Hare – 24 Carrot Island (guide)
  • Black Widow – Counterfeit Island (guide)
  • Captain Crawfish – Skullduggery Island (guide)
  • Binary Bard – Astro-Knights Island (guide)

Keep checking back here at the PHB for the latest news on the latest islands! 😀

Cover art for Poptropica book series

Muddy Axe previously told us about the possibility of more Poptropica books, including a Mad Libs book and Poptropica Lime 1 for ages 6-7. Now we see that there are going to be books based on Astro-Knights and Skullduggery Island, and what’s more, there is cover art for the two! Cool! 😀

Astro-Knights Island (Poptropica) by Tracey West

Skullduggery Island (Poptropica) by Adrianne Ambrose

Both paperbacks are illustrated by MadPark Design Inc., and currently available for pre-order through Barnes & Noble for $5.39 and Amazon for $5.99 (US). They will be released on November 8, 2012.

There’s not much information about the books, but they seem to be storybooks to tell the tale of those particularly long islands. 😛

There is also going to be an activity book called Pencil Warrior with no image available yet and the description is:

The Poptropica Field Guide to Creativity

This amazing full-color celebration of Poptropica-inspired creativity traverses the most popular Islands of Poptropica. Features 16 pages of adventure-filled activities and plenty of amazing extras.

EDIT: You can count on books than just these, because Muddy Axe tells us that Cryptids Island (Poptropica) by Max Brallier and Lunar Colony by Patrick Kinney will see the light of day in 2013. Notice that the authors’ names indicate that they are related to Poptropica publishers Jess Brallier and Jeff Kinney!

What do you think of these books and the other ones mentioned before? Think you’ll be buying any, maybe? 🙂

Still stuck on Astro Knights?

I’m sure most of you already finished Astro Knights Island, but for the people who haven’t yet, Poptropica made a step-by-step walkthrough with video guides and all you need to complete one of the most challenging islands ever made on Poptropica! Of course, you can always use our PHB Island Help resources! 😀 Here’s how to get it and how it works (thanks to Striped Grape for the pics) :

Go to Astro Knights Island and walk until you see this stand:

Simply click on the card to get it! The best par: it’s free! *throws confetti into the air* 😀 The card appears in your Astro Knights inventory. Click “USE” and this menu should pop up:

Main Menu: This is the main page that pops up. It shows the most popular help topics that people need help on in Astro Knights.

Step-by-Step Walkthrough: This page shows the steps needed to complete Astro Knights! It tells you how to get items, where and when you get to use them, how to solve the tile puzzle, and how to defeat bosses like the Dragotank and Binary Bard. Each step is accompanied by a video guide with a play, pause, and repeat button so you can watch all the action! 😀

Help Topics by Category: The name should explain it all, shouldn’t it? 😀  The help topics are categorized by Key Items, Quest Objectives, and Boss Battles.

Hope you guys find the Poptropica guide and our PHB guides helpful! 🙂

One last note: I might not be able to post much because high school starts for me soon too, so if the authors could save Friday’s posts for me, that would be great! Kthxbai 😀
