Super sketches, snowy spring, and bingo games

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and I’m here with good Poptropica stuff for you all today!

To start, as we know, Super Power is one of the two Islands of the Month for the month of March. And since that is the case, we get to see behind the scenes sketches from the production of that Island! Although we have seen some of these sketches before, there are some new ones in the mix. Check them out below (click to enlarge images):

Interestingly enough, according to the Creator’s Blog post, these are sketches are from a Poptropica artist named Lance. Well, there’s one Creator that we know of that has that name: Lance Fry! Even though it’s kinda hard not to stop chuckling at Crusher’s over-sized arms and chest, these sketches do give quite the insight on Poptropica’s development in 2008.

In other news, over here in the East Coast of the US, nature decided that the definition of “almost spring” weather is not sunshine and decent temperatures – instead we’re getting snow! Skinny Moon lamented this over on Snapchat, yet at the same time, has hyped up the new Movie Theater on Home Island. What will come of it? We’ll just have to wait and see…

Finally, just for fun, Skinny Moon also posted a bingo game on Poptropica’s various social media channels! Check it out below:

Bingo

Within the bingo cards are not only in-game/multitasking parts, but also community-related activities, like “hang out in a Poptropica Discord chat”!

Does anybody have a bingo? Or two? Did anybody black out the board? Let us know! Plus, share your bingo board with Poptropica and they’ll feature it on social media!

BT out!

A plethora of poptastic updates!

Hello, everyone!

Lucky Joker here and today I’ll be sharing updates regarding the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest, the Poptropica app and more! Skinny Moon has seen most of the FAQ on Poptropica’s social media and decided to answer a few today on the Creator’s Blog, so let’s get right to it.

Regarding the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest, here’s what she had to say:

We haven’t forgotten about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest. Au contraire, my popping peeps. We are almost done combing through all the entries and hope to open up voting for the runners-up later this week!

You read it right—Voting could open up as soon as this week! When the voting process commences, we’ll let you know. Can’t wait to see all of the amazing runner-ups!

She also mentioned Poptropica Worlds in her latest post and is fully aware of all of the questions we have. Expect a FAQ post to appear on the blog in the near future. 😉

Also, don’t forget to vote for February’s Islands of the Month. Voting ends tomorrow January 24 at midnight ET, so be sure to do so soon. Here are the results so far:

It’s pretty neck and neck here. Which one will you vote for?

On the topic of Islands of the Month, make sure to go finish January’s Islands of the Month and take advantage of the usual credit boost. You have a week left to play!

Skinny Moon hasn’t only been blogging as of late, but snapchatting as well under the name “Official Poptropica”. Check out these snaps from earlier today:

As for the Poptropica App, there appears to be a new ad (acknowledging Poptropica’s latest comicWeek 32) with a couple of prizes to be earned! Though it may be on the desktop version as well, I was only able to find it on the app. Anyway, let’s pop right into it!

I’ll admit, the game is pretty difficult  but it’s still fun nonetheless! To earn your prizes, slide your finger across your screen to dodge falling objects which include bananas, barrels and carrots. (It makes much more sense if you read the comic. 😛 )

The broomsticks up on the top left corner signify the amount of times you can get hit with an object before you lose. The bar on the left shows the progress you’ve made on your way to the finish.

Upon completing the game, you’ll win the Flying Monkey Costume and the Banana Peel!

Well, that’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk to you soon. Pop on!

Time to Vote: What will be February’s IotMs?

Hey there, Poptropicans!

It’s Happy Lobster, and I’ve got some good news for you. As many of you would know, Islands of the Month takes place monthly (obviously), and so that means that two brand-new IotMs will be announced once January ends and February commences.

In a quick summary, IotMs result in the following:

  • 500 credits are given for first-time finishers of corresponding islands, and 300 credits are given to replays;
  • IotM members-only store costumes and powers will return for a limited time;
  • Behind-the-scenes artworks, scenes, plots, and other items of IotMs unseen before will be showcased on the Creators’ Blog, and;
  • Captain Crawfish will make any video walkthroughs for IotMs that don’t have one already created.

But this time, you get to decide one IotM for February – out of Super Power Island and Reality TV Island. Sadly, you will not be able to determine February’s other IotM – which, as of yet, is unknown – but one is more than good enough, right?

Anyhow, the poll ends by Friday, January 27th Tuesday, January 24th, at midnight, ET. (Updated: The time has been moved up to give Captain Crawfish more time to make his video walkthrough!) 

The island with the most votes by then will become a February IotM. Vote on the Creators’ Blog now!

Hall of Fame, Super Power Island

Hall of Fame Winner: Sneaky Bear

Yes, that time has come. The last Hall of Fame winner is here! As you can tell by the title, the winner is… Sneaky Bear! Her Poptropican is only 9 days old but has already finished 21 islands.

sneaky bearSneaky Bear can now be found on Main Street of Super Power Island. She has replaced yet another NPC, but this time the Poptropican she replaced was a character that always had a random outfit every time you visit.

Well, the Hall of Fame is now over, but the Creators say that “the doors of the Poptropica Hall of Fame may one day open again.” This graphic from the Poptropica front page, showing all the winners, congratulates the “2015 winners” – suggesting that they may bring this back in the coming years.

Comics, Super Power Island

Super Hot Dog Boy (part 4 of 4)

The 4th and last part of the Super Hot Dog Boy comic is out! You can read it here:

In other news: I’m receiving a lot of comments on this blog that are not related to Poptropica at all. Please, if you want to talk about things other than Poptropica, this is not the right place. (So, don’t post off-topic comments here.)

Another problem with comments we have is that people are asking questions when the information can easily be found somewhere on this blog, or have already been answered. This means that if you have a question, search the FAQ page; if it’s about an island quest, read the quest guide’s page.

Also, I have noticed many people are asking when Spy Island will come out, or when I think it will, etc. All we know is that it’s coming soon. That’s all. ~Scary Tomato
