Seven Islands become members only!

Okay… so I got some bad news, guys. Remember the whole Nabooti demo thing and how Nabooti Island is only for members now? Well, more islands have joined the members only club.

7reasons

There may be over 40 islands, but now 7 of those islands are exclusive for members. The seven islands are all sponsored islands (islands that are based on a franchise/not completely original), with the exception of the more recent Galactic Hot Dogs Island, which isn’t on the list:

Non-members can still play a demo of each island, but nothing beyond that. With Timmy Failure Island coming up, we have to wonder if that will eventually be locked to members only as well, since it’s also a sponsored island.

Yes, what we have feared is true. I just hope Poptropica won’t become completely membership oriented. 😦 Let us know in the comments what you think!

Wimpy Boardwalk Island

The Boardwalk Is Here

The wait is finally over! Wimpy Boardwalk is available for all!

It’s summertime, but the living ain’t easy for a wimpy kid. When Greg and Rowley visit the boardwalk for a relaxing beach vacation, they never expect to run afoul of thieving teens, ravenous seagulls, and crooked carnies. Only you can clean up Greg’s mess before vacation ends!

And if you need some tips, PHB has a walkthrough for that – with pictures too!

Now that this island has arrived, our main focus will head over to Lunar Colony. So goodbye Greg and hello Astronauts!

Bonus Items, Membership, Wimpy Boardwalk Island

Vacation’s Almost Over?

Remember those limited edition costumes that members received during the early access release of Wimpy Boardwalk?

They looked something like that? Well with early access coming to an end, this is both a good and bad thing. Good because the non-members were becoming impatient and bad because these rare gold cards will disappear! So if you’d like to cop these cool items before they’re gone, go get membership so Poptropica can pay their bills! But just look at those gold cards.. I mean, who wouldn’t want them?

This was just a friendly little warning, Poptropicans! Wimpy Boardwalk will be released this Thursday! About time, right?

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nope, it’s the Breezy forums! So, if you happen to be bored one day and want to talk to other kids around the world, go on and join! There’s even one for online games, which you all may have an interest towards! So go register! This is definitely the go-to forum of the Summer! 😀

A look behind the scenes.

The creators have released a few pictures of the ‘behind the scenes’ work behind the release of Wimpy Boardwalk. Such as this one, where Jeff Kinney, Poptropica creator and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author, gives some advice to some of the Poptropica designers.

From this picture, we can tell two things. (Well, I can anyway. You may be able to find more.)

  1. It takes a LOT of designers to make a Wimpy Kid island.
  2. The designers are able to decorate their station with toys, posters, and other cool stuff!

So when you play a new island, just spare a thought for the people who have worked hard to make Poptropica the best it can be! 😀

There is probably a great deal of relief and satisfaction (and maybe a little partying) when a new island is released. Look at these lovely, big smiles!

Say cheese!

Gorgeous.

Members can play Wimpy Boardwalk now. On the 18th of July it will be released to non-members. Remember, if you get stuck, you can always refer to our Wimpy Boardwalk guide! (Credit going to Shaggy Tornado, Super Thunder, Clean Shark, MT, and Slanted Fish!)

Cya guys!

Wimpy Boardwalk Island

I want the high score, so I gotta play more!

What’s your Thunder Volt high score? Members can play this retro shooter video game as the bonus quest at the end of Wimpy Boardwalk Island. It looks like even Friendly Bug wasn’t able to beat Greg’s high score of 10 million… and that makes him/her an idiot, according to this high scores list!

Having trouble with this arcade game? Our PHB Wimpy Boardwalk guide has tips and instructions on how to beat the game, so give it a try! Do you have what it takes to put Greg out of his shame?
