And OMZ (which I imagine can only mean oh my Zeus), did you hear? Mythology Island has been added to the Poptropica mobile app, which is available on all iOS devices! It’s the same as the online version, so if you need a walkthrough, check out the PHB’s Mythology Island Guide!

Android users, there’s some good news – according to the official Poptropica Twitter, the Poptropica mobile app will be available on Google Play around July, which is only a couple months away!

Also, there’s been a strange glitch with the inventory (thanks to KeithSammut for pointing this out!) – the “Vent Blueprint”, which belongs in the 24 Carrot items, can be found among your Shark Tooth items! What’s up with that? 😛

Anyway, don’t forget that the PHB magazine (now known as POPCORN) is looking for creative Poptropica fan stories, artwork, fashion, island ideas, and more for its next issue, which is coming June 1st!

“Aren’t you gonna pick it?”

“It’s just an apple! How hard could it be?”

“Just ignore the tree carving that says ‘Beware the Fruit’ with lightning bolts around it- some greedy kid might’ve put it there.”

“You want to live forever, don’t you? Be like one of the mighty Olympians up on Mt. Olympus, don’t you? Well then pick the golden apple, mortals, and mortals you will be no more.”

We all know where these bribes are leading us to: trouble with a divine encounter.

Just in time for its 4-year anniversary, the classic 12th island, Mythology Island, is now available for members, and it’ll release to the public next week! The Creators have uploaded a new version of the trailer video to reiterate the fact that it’s now in sound. If you need help on the island, you can find the PHB’s guide here!

Be careful, Poptropicans- as you know, you’re gonna get into a lot of trouble in this island.

Well, now that I’ve played the Mythology SUI, what do I think of it?

It was… very satisfying. I found the music to fit…usually.

For example, I’m curious as to why the music didn’t change for a moment when Zeus took the 5 sacred items from you. I’m kinda left awkwardly staring as he took them as the soothing music  played in the background. Yeah…

Anyways, about the most notable changes in gameplay…

  • The Red Eyed Snake Puzzle: It’s easier! Cue the rejoicing! *YAY!* Now, the snakes come up in groups instead of individually, the red eyed snake somewhere in those groups. This allowed me to finish that puzzle much easier…
  • The River Styx: Five words – everything is in slow motion. Also, there’s a new way to avoid the flaming skulls- you wait for it to dive into you and then you jump. Although it took me a while to get used to it, I found it easier
  • The Battle vs. Zeus: Wow, what a change. O.o. The first thing you’ll notice as the epic music is blaring in your ear is the fact that the camera is close up, unlike in the original Mythology Island. Also, unfortunately, due to this closeup, it’s gotten harder to track down Zeus. Here’s a tip: listen to the sounds to know what attack Zeus is doing. If it has an electrical traveling sound, that means he’s got that invisibility blockade on him right now.

Overall, I found the experience to be quite enjoyable- I’m pleased to see that the Zeus battle wasn’t glitchy as I feared it would be, and I’m happy with the result. As I had said when the first preview came out, I am saying hello to a new beginning.

Mythology Island

Mythology SUI is coming out tonight or tomorrow!

UPDATE: The new Mythology SUI will be coming out for members tomorrow, and to all next week!

(Don’t worry, non-members — it’s not much different than the original Mythology, and you’re not missing out on much. I hope it doesn’t become a regular occurrence though. 😦 )

Hi everyone! Something’s up with the upcoming Mythology SUI, because if you change the URL of the player map, you can now find the new player map! (No one has completed it yet, though 😛 )

You can find the uncompleted Mythology SUI medallion in your medallions list as well — note that the original Mythology medallion is still there — will we be keeping both the CPI (classic pop islands) and SUI island medallions?

Lastly, they’ve uploaded the advertisement for Mythology Island saying that it’s online, although you won’t be able to view it from the in game home page.

It could be coming out tonight (the Time Tangled SUI came out at 8pm UTC), but it also could come out tomorrow. What do you think?

Mythology Island

Mythology Island SUI is coming soon!

LONDON, 1930 –

*stumbles out of police box* Woah. I thought I told Timmy to set a course for 2030. He is so fired…

What’s popping, Poptropicans? Blake here, in what seems to be 20th century England. Anyway, my Post Radar tells me that the Mythology Island SUI (sound-updated island) is coming soon! 😀

Mythology Island

It may be the most popular Island the Creators have done yet, and possibly one of the more original ones (ahem, Bikers vs. Boards), and now, it’s getting the full treatment: Sound. Music. Oh, and the River Styx will be made easier too. (cue the angelic choirs!) Plus, don’t forget  the all-new Mythology desktop wallpaper and printable poster on the remade Tour page!

Also, it seems that Icarus costume was intentional after all!

After so many weeks of mystery…

(Timmy: Uh, Mr. Blake? It’s been like 3 days…)

HUSH, TIMMY, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY DAYS IT’S BEEN!

(Timmy: SORRY!)

So, that’s pretty much it for my rambling today. Stay popping, Poptropicans.
