Astro-Knights Island, Lunar Colony Island, Night Watch Island, Vampire's Curse Island

Going left of Main Street

Some of you may have seen the Roman soldier on top of the tourist center on Shark Tooth Island, as mentioned in Sam’s post last weekย – but in case you missed the updates in that post, there’s more to the Shark Tooth shenanigans. If you go left of Main Street, you’ll find yourself on a small island with a wrecked ship in the background that definitely wasn’t there before. And that’s not all! Check out some of these other new places on other islands, also to the left of Main Street:

There’s a floating car on Night Watch, a smoldering crop circle on Astro-Knights, a barbed wire fence and some PASE boxes on Lunar Colony, and a plain wooden fence on Vampire’s Curse. Those seem to be all the ones so far, but do comment if you find another. ๐Ÿ˜›

All of these areas are pretty small, and they seem to serve no purpose as of now – my guess is that they might be used as ad spaces in the future, but who knows? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Lunar Colony Island, Super Villain Island

Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

Hey guys! As you probably know by now, Lunar Colony Island has been released for everyone. If you need help, check out the PHB’s written walkthrough, video playlist, map, discussion page, or chatroom.

The Poptropica Tour pages for all islands have been redecorated for the upcoming Super Villain Island, with dark edges and the main villains (Bard, Crawfish, Widow, and Hare) circled with blue lightning.

While you’re there, you may as well visit the tour page for Super Villain and pick up the island extras: the desktop wallpaper and printable poster. Looks like Super Villain’s going to be super epic! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bonus Items, Lunar Colony Island, Super Villain Island

Marvelling at the Blue Marble, zigging like Zaggy Moondust, and chillin’ like a villain

Because matchy titles are so fun to say. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you’ve played the new Lunar Colony Island, you may have seen this view of planet Earth Poptropica from the moon. Turns out, the Creators had planned for it to look like a real photograph called “Earthrise,” from the Apollo 8 mission. Pretty cool! For more space pics from the Creators (“Blue Marble” and “Pale Blue Dot”) click here.

Lunar Colony will be available to everyone starting on Thursday, September 6th. Be warned, though: there’s only one week left to get the limited edition “Zaggy Moondust” costume from the Poptropica Store! Become a member to get exclusive LC Island items, including Moon Rock and Alien Archaeology powers, for free.

The tour page for Super Villain Island was released, which you can read about in Brave Tomato’s post here. The discussion page for SV Island is also up on the PHB here, so check that out as well!

EDIT: Some PHB readers have noticed that Super Villain will be Poptropica’s 30th island, just in time for Poptropica’s 5th birthday! Awesomesauce. ๐Ÿ˜€

In other news, don’t forget to enter our PHB 7 million hits contest for a chance to win a rare costume prize! You can read about and enter it here. Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚
