Early Poptropica Island, Photo Booth, Realms, Timmy Failure Island

The code, the birthday, the maze and the photos…

Hey guys! Slip here.

We have lots of news to cover today. Without further ado, let’s start!

intro

The Creators have added a brand new promo code to celebrate the release of Timmy Failure! Just enter the code FINDTHEPANTS4 and instantly get 150 credits! The code only lasts until Sunday, so catch it before it goes!

Speaking of Sunday, that will also be the last day of Poptropica’s 8th Birthday celebration. If you haven’t received the 8th birthday prize or 200 credits for finishing Early Poptropica (first time only), well now’s the time to grab ’em!

Next, Captain Crawfish has uploaded a new Realms video featuring Smart Bones’ labyrinth— and it left us a challenge! Captain Crawfish finished the maze in 6 minutes and 45 seconds—can you beat his time? Leave your results below

(Warning: Beware of shouting, ranting, groaning, words of wisdom and Crawfish-seizures! :P)

Speaking of the Creators, Poptropica shared some of their spooky Photo Booth creations on Twitter! Want to share yours? Tweet to Poptropica and they’ll retweet! 🙂

And that’s all of the updates! Have you checked out HP’s PoptropiComic or UiPE’s fan art contest entries? Don’t forget to leave a comment! 🙂

running out of time..

The creators gave us a heads up in their new post on the PCB. This head’s up is to inform us that the first scavenger hunt will soon be over! By 10/26/11, in just about 5 days, the first scavenger hunt will end, and the second one will start a day later on the 27th! If you haven’t bought the book yet and want it, there’s still time left to quickly make a purchase, then hunt for the answers!

But of course, the answers to all three questions have been easily figured out by some of our readers. Special thanks to the PHB readers and commenters for providing these answers! For those of you wh0 actually want a hunt, then don’t read this bottom part, it’s the answer to the code. Don’t read it if you want the thrill of a hunt. But for those of you seriously stuck, or who didn’t purchase the book, the code is below:

Title of Poptropica villian on page 45 = dr.Hare (it doesnt fit so you just put ‘DR’)

rank of Poptropica villian on page 133 = captain crawfish (His rank is captain, so write ‘CAPTAIN’)

size of Poptropica villian on page 174 = BIG, LARGE (in Spanish, so you type ‘GRANDE’)

So the final code: DRCAPTAINGRANDE

You can use this code to redeem your virtual book for your character! Nice, huh? Yep, go and use this code for your free prize!

Snapshot Series

Adventures go global

A day or so ago Dr. Hare posted a new post with another sneak peek picture to hint where he was. The hint was a kangaroo crossing… surely this could only be at one place where kangaroos are located – Australia! Here was the image posted some days ago:

Well, looks pretty happy, eh? Might as well give up on his evil schemes and enjoy himself around the world xD. Now’s it’s revealed that the evil genius was indeed in…drumroll…you guessed it…The North Pole…no? Just kidding, everyone. He was really in Bells Beach in Australia as revealed in today’s image.

And there he is clutching a leaf in his hand. I wonder how he got all over these places…and so fast…maybe the creators had people in different regions buy a toy and take a picture? Hmm. It is to be wondered.

Anyways, thinking about tracking all Dr. Hare’s travels? Well, the creators released a nifty tool that is to be updated on a basis. Here’s the map they gave for us. You can scroll around the map by moving your cursor. There will be carrot markings for each area he went. You can then click on the markings and location name to bring up a picture he took for that PCB post and also some blogging words from the evil bunny.

It can be viewed on this SWF link:

Pretty cool, huh? Well, EP out!

Redeem the code!

Hi, it’s Elmopwns here. I’m here with a new post on how to redeem your code from any Poptropica toy! If you don’t know about the Poptropica toys yet, see Hicoga’s last post (complete with a nifty looking picture. nice job :D). Anyways, every toy comes with a special hand held item to use in your online game. So your getting a virtual item as well.

They can only be obtained by buying the actual toy and redeeming the code that came with it. The creators have done a new post detailing instructions on how to redeem your virtual gift!

How to redeem the code from your Poptropica toys

We’re hearing that Poptropica toysare starting to show up on the shelves of Toys “R” Us stores all over the place! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to check them out in person. But you may be wondering how to use the code that comes with each toy, which gives your Poptropican cool new powers and costumes.First, make sure you’re logged into your saved game. If you don’t yet have a saved game, create a new character, press the round “save” button, and create a username and password. Make sure to keep the username and password safe!

Next, you can enter your code in one of two places. When you log into Poptropica with an existing account, you can enter your code in the lower righthand part of the screen.

Or you can visit the Poptropica Store by pressing the star icon in the top right of your screen. The place to enter your code is located in the upper right.

The code works the same way in either place. Once you’ve redeemed it, go to your in-game inventory and select “store items” from the dropdown menu to use your new goodies.

Last, and most important: Enjoy!

So it’s pretty self-explanatory. You enter the code by clicking the star and typing in the promo code, and then you get a new gift or power! Thanks for the instructions, creators! The virtual items have a long range of things:
  • Sir Cador
  • Dr. Hare costume (Does that mean they fixed that cheat to become Dr. Hare?I better go check…hopefully not!)
  • Shark Boy costume
  • Stealth Agent
  • Spy Agent
  • Crystal Crusader
  • The Green Hawk (Note: you can get this via playing super power island, but the green wires that comes with the costume cannot be obtained)
  • Captain Colbat and Crimson (come with flying parrots…ftw!)
  • Booga Shaman (I’m pretty sure you can costumize him on Shark Tooth Island)
  • Shark Surfer
  • Dr. Hare hand held toy
  • Hare spell! It brainwashes anyone you control! Too bad it actually doesn’t brain was them…jk 😀
  • Cool kid hand held toy
  • Cool kid power, cameras flash for you since you’re “cool”
  • Shark Boy hand held toy
  • Jump the shark power, throw a fish and try to get it over the shark!

That was the list of all the powers, costumes, and hand held items you can redeem by buying a toy! Note: If you want costumes, the 6-inch plastic toys are for you! If you want powerss or hand held toys, the plushes come with those!

EP signing out!

Have a great summer! HAGS!

Astro-Knights Island, Sneak Peeks

Got Green Screen?

Hey people! Yes, it’s Smockers. Anyways, a new post on the PCB shows up! We’ve seen Comic Kid go through weird, scientific labs, clown stores, and crystal caves. But have we seen him visit a strange, green tech laboratory of some sort? Check it out!

Blog Post Title: Green Screen
Description: My travels took me to yet another “out of this world” location, where I had a hard time deciphering what was being displayed on this green screen.

This sneak peek is probably showing part of Astro-Knights island. “Out of this world” most likely suggests that it’s… not on Earth. We also see Comic Kid staring in awe at what appears to be binary numbers on a green screen. Perhaps, if you put those numbers in a binary translator, it could reveal some message? 😛 I wonder how this will be implemented into the island…

Well, that’s about it. Smockers signing out!
