Always Golden

Plot twist: I’m alive! 😉 Bet you weren’t expecting that one.

So, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has only been released for just over a day, and so many Poptropicans have already rushed through the gates, waving your Golden Ticket around yelling “I’M IN! I’M IN!”

Or at least most of you did. Some of you only yelled “I’M IN!” once.

Either way, whether you’re in or out, there are some who are undeniably quick and zip through islands. It requires speed, strength, knowledge, and a bag of candy.

Without further ado, let us congratulate those who stayed golden throughout the whole island and finished it the quickest! Put your hands together (even if they’re covered in chocolate) for…

*drumroll*

1. Dizzy Leopard
of the Flying Squid

(What did I say about the candy? Everyone loves it!)

2. Zippy Leopard
of the Flying Squid

(I want those glasses. Now.)

3. Little Owl
of the Wildfire

(I also want those glasses. Poptropicans always look good in glasses. And candy.)

4. Angry Claw
of the Nanobots

(I want those headphones. Then we can all listen to music that suits the mood for each part of the island. Pile on the suspense!)

5. Smart Eagle
of the Pathfinders

(Pathfinders; a fellow tribesmate. Well done, Smart Eagle!)

6. Green Seal
of the Seraphim

(It’s impossible to not be one of the first with an epic name like that. Green and gold go good together.)

7. Trusty Grape
of the Black Flags

(Oh, that’s one of the coolest hairstyles I’ve ever seen! And the medallion looks simply amazing!)

8. Young Clown
of the Nanobots

(I really do love the medallion. The way Young Clown is wearing it allows us to see the red and white striped design of the medallion!)

9. Perfect Cactus
of the Pathfinders

(Perfect Cactuses wouldbe first. Congrats!)

10. Invisible Axe
of the Flying Squid

(That is just the most awesomely-bizarre collection of clothing.)

And that concludes our ten first finishers! I do hope many of you cross the finish line soon, to join the elite! Fellow Poptropicans, let us rejoicify by staying golden always and eating candy.

P.S. For the holidays, ask for that new D.S. game. It looks amazifyingly good.

The app has arrived!

Attention, all ye poptropicans. The long awaited app from the Poptropica creators has finally arrived! The creators have been hinting at it for MONTHS. They’ve given us time to time snapshots, photos, and updates. Finally after all this time, the app is available for purchase in the iTunes Store!

The app is titled Poptropica: Tips and Tricks. It’s the only app by the creators. The app is available for purchase for all Apple product users here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/poptropica-official-tips-tricks/id476956418. Use an android? Fear not. There’s another app for Android users on the Android Market. Android users can find the app here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.pearson.poptropica.

This app is amazing! If we zoom in closer to the image, you can tell there’s a variety of features to be used. There’s news of updates to the app on “What’s new”. You can access a list of island guides by tapping on the button. Then from there on out, each island has a different page (such as the Game Show Island example they had earlier) where you can view the complete walkthrough, items to obtain, goals to achieve, and even boss fights on certain islands.

The app is currently free (thanks to those who found this typo, owe you one, guys). It comes with Game Show Island, but to purchase other islands you will need to pay 99 cents for each.  Get yours today!

Uhhh, where’s the on switch?

The creators have confirmed a new island, but not its name. Some kind of machinery island, Mad Machine? Silly Structure? Extra-strange tool island?? O___O

New island sneak peek week!

Many of you have noticed that there is a new Poptropica island in the works. We’ve decided to share a few sneak peeks of this mysterious, mechanical island.

You’ll need a few gadgets to get past some tricky puzzles and wacky, wild monsters — and I’m not talking about your dad’s pocket knife.

Here are a couple of gizmos that you won’t find in your home toolbox. One of these will help you on your quest to victory, cheering fans, and instant popularity…well, at least victory.

“Multi Tool”? Hmm, what do you think it does?

Come back all week for more sneak peeks. Then, on Friday, we’ll announce the name of the new island. You’ll get it here first, so keep those eyeballs glued to the blog for more exciting peeks.

[CODERKID:

Hello guuuyyys! 😀 I’m here to save the Creators the trouble of posting on Friday…the new island is called “Steamworks”. Pretty spiffy name, eh?

OVER AND OUT]

The tools (yes I do notice that the font is blue) seem to be normal tools melded all together. -_o The multi tool looks like a drill, scissors and hair cutting thingamajigs. Number 2 seems to be a wrench, pressure meter and funnel on a wheel. O_o I have no idea what on earth, poptropica or pewter moon these tools will do, or why you will need them.

*Flies into clouds with BOLD BLUE ITALIC font, which is cooler than walking :D*

Two evil geniuses……one mini game. Can we do it? YES WE CAN!!!!

Two evil geniuses have entered Poptropica… what could be worse? Oh hi guys, just stopping in to say… NEW MINI QUEST! And new Einstein costume in the store, for 75 credits of course. If you get it, you can also read a chapter from the new book ‘Who Was Albert Einstein?’. (Isn’t he the guy that made E = MC2?) Here’s a picture:

Happy Birthday Einstein!

Albert Einstein was born March 14, 1879. To celebrate his birthday, there is an outfit that comes with a free chapter from a book about him called, “Who Was Albert Einstein?”
Now you can look just as smart as Einstein, as you think deep thoughts, and read about his life.To formulate a powerful equation, hit the space bar.
(You can purchase the full version of the book by Jess Brallier today! Click Here.)

Coskit: Einstein was born on March 14. 3/14. 3.14. The first digits of pi. Coskit’s (and Hijuyo’s) favorite number. I know…by now….314 digits of pi. Yes, 314 again. 😀

Neat Whale: Well, the Creators have finally opened up the new Dr. Hare mini quest that we have waited long for, even though that evil rude mind-controlling Dr. Hare is back anyway… but let’s get on with it… the quest costs 250 credits to play (CREATORS! WAY TOO HIGH!) the Haunted House quest was FREE! FREE I SAY! A FREE 50 CREDS!.. ..ok, ok, I’ll calm down now….. and here’s the guide that I wrote to help you all out:

1 – The quests begins! Jump up onto the rocks and ledges until you reach a metal-looking-ish thing with a Rabbot sign above it (that sign never stops scaring me) and a box of carrots on a rock near it (Not again!) Enter the building. Then you will appear in another metal looking room. Why all the metal, Dr. Hare. Just wondering. It makes your hideout standout. Get it?…Um ok yea moving on…

2 – Go right over a floating platform to the right, near an ad for membership (very nice, Dr. Hare. Ads. I love it.) Then you will come across a man with a pink eyepatch (not very manly sailor) pink lab coat (still not manly) and clipboard. Talk to him. He will tell you that you are in one of Dr. Hare’s secret lairs, he was a mind-slave of Dr. Hare, and that he made a very creepy looking robot to the right which will help him with evil plans. Again with the evil plans. Why not good plans? Why? Click on the robot cage to your right. You then say that you need three colored cards. Go back on the sliding-down thingy and go right once at the bottom. Click on the red Dr. Hare door.

3 – (This is beginning to seem a lot like the Race to Witch Mountain thing, huh?) Go right after the stupid annoying little laser like thing and get on the floating thing with a box. Then, let it pull you up until you’ve reached a platform with a red button at the end of it. Push the box onto the red thing. The blocked door above will open. Now, to get to the upper platform, go left and hide behind the carrot boxes from the guards (creepy looking right?) Then jump up, jump right, and get the red key card.

4 –  Now, go left above the bearded guard, and hop onto yet another floating platform with a box. When you come across another flooring, push the box onto it because it has the purple (purple is the best color in the world, just saying) button. Then go back on the floating platform and ride it up to the other platform with bearded guard on it, hide behind a box, and then jump up onto the now unlocked room with the purple card. (Purple is still awesome.)

5 – Now, go down down down. Below the entrance. Below the thing with more lasers. And ride another platform down where you have to hide behind another box from a weird person with an afro. A little farther over from you it the blue card slot. Now, ride the platform up again above the thing with lasers, and go to the edge. There should be a box at the end. Push the box off the end and it will smash on the ground near/on the blue switch. Push it onto it if it isn’t already on it. If you push it off the end like I did the first time, you’re dead and you need to start over. Now if it is on it, yaeeeey for you and run over on top of the other platforms with the lasers, onto the moving platform, into the room with the blue card, then you grab the blue card, scream with joy, ride the floating platform back up again, go out through the entrance… you get the main idea.

6 – Rush up to the top where the robot is, open it up with your cards, and–WHAT?! Only 50 credits?! RIP OFF CREATORS!! RIP OFF!!! And the costume only makes you a robot. Now where’s Dr. hare? I wanted to blast him off into space again because last time it was fun. Well? WHERE IS HE?! Wait he’s still in space? Awww mannn… 😦 Well that fun anyway zD

Hijuyo: Check out this sneak peek posted on the Poptropica Facebook page! It looks like it belongs on the upcoming Mythology Island. This sketch was filed under a photo album titled “The Making of Poptropica”, and the description says, “A palace fit for a king — or maybe somebody even more powerful than that.”

Return of the Reality…donuts!

Hey guys, Neat Whale here. Seems to be that Reality is back in order–the Creators didn’t forget about it after all! All the rumors have been answered! Which is good, a lot of us were waiting for it. 😛 Well, not me entirly, but I thought the idea was cool. 😛 And thanks for the update, Seph/Deathstalker! Here’s the post info:

Back to Reality

Well after much vacationing, I have again returned to Reality TV Island. I heard the local grocery store had some good donuts, I just don’t know which kind to get.

 

As you can see, this was posted by Comic Kid. xD And there’s another one of his awesome emotions we can’t do…why must the Creators torture us so?! 😥 Lol…I think that Comic Kid should get the strawberry frosted on top, though…those are tasty. But wait…what if we have to buy a certain donut or something to do something else on Reality?And what if the donuts are BOMBS? AHHHH! SO MANY IDEAS! Now my BRAIN hurts!!!! xD
Well, that’s about all… see you later, guys! Neat Whale out! 

New Island?

GE here! I haz some very important newz!

There is going to be a new mini-quest coming soon on Poptropica!!!
It’s called “Haunted House” and I have a pretty good feeling its about Halloween. =P

Right smack dab on the Poptropica homepage, there is this icon…yes…the icon of all icons.

 

Its small, blue, and white. Can't miss it.

Its small, blue, and white. Can't miss it.

I don’t know if this means if RTV will never come out (which in that case, I apologize for Smockers. He wanted hippie mans costume). We’re also not sure if the Haunted House is going to be a seperate island or just part of the other islands – or if it is just temporary!

They’ve obviously started to get decked for Halloween (or as I call it, the orthodontist’s dream come true) on the Creators’ Blog homepage.

 

New header

New header!!!

They’ve gotten a new header, complete with Jack-o-lanterns and orange borders on each letter!!! =)

And a new post….by Shark Boy (Man)!
