Hi, everyone! We hope you’re all staying safe during this pandemic. With many businesses being affected, Poptropica could be taking a hit as well. Still, the Creators managed to give us some minor yet meaningful updates.
There is a new ad campaign for the upcoming Dreamworks movie Trolls World Tour. Many concert stadiums have popped up on various islands, so you can rock out no matter which island you’re on.
When you’re ready, go inside and talk to Poppy. She will ask for your help to stop the rock trolls, and you agree to lend your epic guitar skills. This mini-game is like Guitar Hero, and the objective is to click the jewels when they reach the bottom. Keep doing this to fill the gauge on the bottom left.
Though it would be cool if you won an electric guitar, you still get two prizes that are pretty interesting. The first prize is the Tiny Diamond Follower, which gives you the power to splash gold glitter onto the screen.
The second prize is the Rainbow Glitter Barf power (yup). Equipping this power gives you sweet troll hair*! (*Side effects include headaches, nausea, and vomitting sparkly rainbows.)
This colorful prize is so unique that Poptropica promoted it across social media. They even posted a video about it to the official Poptropica Youtube channel, making this their first Youtube video since the Greek Sea Odyssey walkthrough from February 26, 2018!
This Trolls campaign doesn’t stop with concerts and sparkles. You can express your love of music by decorating your clubhouse with four posters for Trolls World Tour! Open your furniture inventory to put up those posters.
Two weeks ago, we celebrated the long-awaited return of the Photo Booth. However, some players told us that they couldn’t see it. When I logged in to check, sure enough, the Photo Booth was nowhere to be seen on Home Island!
This is strange. Why would the Photo Booth disappear as soon as it came? Did they need to remove a nasty glitch? Maybe they wanted to add more content to the sticker menu? What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
On a lighter note, the Poptropica Creators made a post on Instagram on March 23 for National Puppy Day. This may not seem like much, but this is their first social media post since last February. Maybe this is a sign that things are returning to normal at Pop HQ? Or perhaps the post was scheduled ahead of time? It would nice to hear an official statement from them regarding recent events, but in the meantime, we hope they’re well.
How are you guys faring during this pandemic? If you haven’t already, check out our previous post about how you can enjoy Poptropica during the quarantine. Maybe you can watch Trolls World Tour on April 10? I hear the movie will have an early digital release for fellow social distancers.
Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
