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!

Because on Poptropica, we share the love too.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy the new header at the top –  a special edition only for this weekend, designed by Codien! 

Poptropica released another Snapshot Saga, this time Vlad has ventured over to the new island “Big Nate”. Thanks Shiny Leaf! This is his interview with his latest pal, Hyper Snowball:

Yesterday was a big day! I was marveling over the Future Machine inside Pendulum’s Lab when one of the assistants burst through the door excitedly. All I heard from the anxious scientist was something about a new island being discovered and I bolted outside! I was almost too late to board the airship as it began to float away, but I was able to grab the rope that dangled from the basket before it could soar out of reach.

I arrived swiftly with tired arms and raw hands, and was greeted by an unfriendly bird that knocked me from the rope. Why do I always have such difficult travels?

I soon found my way into Cap’n Salty’s, where I made friends with Hyper Snowball! Here is a snapshot of us in the kitchen looking for the cook. We were both very hungry, but couldn’t find anything to eat!

Keep looking for me as you travel the world of Poptropica, and you might be the next person featured in Snapshot Sagas!

Another Big Nate Comic and Pink Panther 2 Mission!

Hello all; Smockers here! It’s been quite a long time since I have posted (my last post was on New Years Day, in fact)! I was very busy with school stuff, but enough about me. To start, we get a new comic from the PCB! Hopefully, Big Nate Island will be released soon. Anyways, comic below (go to the Poptopica Creators’ Blog to view it full size!):

Thanks to Shiny Leaf for the above and below news! What could be under this text? Why, a Pink Panther 2 mission, of course! That’s right; on Spy Island, you can find this building:

pinkpanther2

When you go inside, you will be present with a mission to find the stolen Pink Painter. You have an inventory at the bottom of the screen. You will receive and find items that will ultimately let you find out who the criminal is. I don’t want to spoil it for people who want to just solve it by themselves; click on the “m0re…” button below if you want to see a walk-through. 🙂 Continue reading “Another Big Nate Comic and Pink Panther 2 Mission!”
