Mystery Train Island

Mystery Train Island soon free for all

Are you not a member on Poptropica? Are you tired of always having to wait for the next new island to be released to non-Members? Always tired of having to wait and wait and count the days?

The wait is over, non-Members! The creators will soon be launching the all new Mystery Train Island to all.

It used to be off course that you could only do a sneak peek of the first part of the island for non-Members. Now, you can go beyond that sneak preview starting from this Friday. The all new island will be released the coming Friday of this week for all.

For members and non-Members alike, if you’re stuck on a part in Mystery Train Island and just cannot get through it…we got solutions for you guys ;). Check out the Island Help page for a written guide, map, video, and info for this new island as well as past islands.

Mystery Train Island

Finished? Already?

Well, you know the drill. One or two days after a new island is released, the creators put up “The Top 10 Finishers” of that island. The new Mystery Train Island has just been out for not more than a week. It took me a full DAY to get from beggining to end. I wonder how long it took these people…introducign *drumrollll*…THE TOP 10 FINISHERS OF MYSTERY TRAIN ISLAND

1. Messy Ghost
2. Smart Sky
3. Spotted Lizard
4. Shaky Chicken
5. Scary Peanut
6. Mighty Bird
7. Zippy Brain
8. Funny Lobster
9. Brave Rider
10. White Lightning 
 
Congratulations to Messy Ghost, Smart Sky, Spotted Lizard, Shaky Chicken, Scary Peanut, Mighty Bird, Zippy Brain, Funny Lobster, Brave Rider, and last but not least White Lightning! These people sure finished fast! I wonder how long it took to finish it for these awesome gamers…probably less time than it took me xD
 
Anyways, there’s the top ten for the new island. For everyone that is still stuck on the island, please reffer to the island help page for the guide to Mystery Train Island, map, and all your resources. Hope it helps.

Shrink Ray Island

Shrink or Swim: Celebrating Poptropica’s 20th Island!

The Poptropica Help Network is proud to present:

Shrink Ray Island Resources: Guide | Videos

Is he trying to 'sea' whether this calamari squid can swim on land, or will it have to face the shrink ray?

Straight from the Creators’ Blog:

Shrink Ray Island is now available!

Poptropica Members have full access to the newest Poptropica adventure. Non-Members can also try out the special Early Access demo. Head on over to Poptropica and see what the big deal is!

Well, the fact that it isn’t fully available for non-members was a bit of a disappointment at our PHC Countdown Party, but at least the non-mems still get more than they usually do – an early access demo of the island! Paying members get to enjoy the entire island first, as usual. PHB staff member ElmoPwns has already written a walkthrough guide with all the Shrink Ray Island cheats, which you can check out by clicking here!

Shrink Ray Island is also Poptropica’s 20th island! HAPPY TWENTY, POPTROPICA! (And to think I could have counted the number of islands there were on one hand when I first started playing…) They’ve just released the trailer video for it, too, so take a look!

Remember: Being tiny can be fun, but don’t lose your true self and size!

The Official Guide to Poptropica!

It’s EP here for a new post. How’s everyone doing? Cruising? Enjoying the summer? That’s nice! I’m almost too lazy today to get out of my video game lounge playing meh xbox to type up a new post :P. But here it goes, the creators have announced the official guide to Poptropica.

Merchandising for the game was hinted some time ago, around a year, in a post on this blog about future products like backpacks and books. I don’t remember who posted it or how they got to it, but I remember the clue was inside a post about a news article on the web interviewing someone that worked on Poptropica. Well, now it’s finally here! Check it out:

Announcing the Poptropica guidebook!

It’s true: Poptropica: The Official Guideis coming! This full-color guidebook contains walkthroughs for most Poptropica Islands, behind-the-scenes looks at how an Island is made, and quotes from the Poptropica Creators. Poptropica: The Official Guide will be released on October 13. For a special sneak preview, visit the Poptropica guidebook page on Amazon.com for a special preview: an interview with Jeff Kinney, Poptropica creator and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author!

October 13th??? Whatttttt? Are they not done editing it or publishing it or something? We’ll have to wait months before we can get an actual copy of this book. I can’t wait to find out what’s inside. I don’t know if they’d include island guides, but maybe only tips and info on the islands. A guide might spoil the fun and surprise perhaps.

On the cover of the book is a Poptropican swinging on a rope…don’t fall. I just felt like saying that ;). The cover also shows various Poptropica characters and a location situated on Mythology Island. You can get read an exclusive interview with Jeff Kinney on the amazon webpage. Cannot wait to obtain my own copy of this book now :). What do you think? Will you buy it? Comment below.

Advertisements

Cloudy with a Chance of Spies…

There are two brand-new advertisements in Poptropica! =D It’s for the ages 6-11, and they’re on the Main Street on islands!  They are the:

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs:

Yep, there used to be another ad for this movie.  This one, however, is for the Blu-Ray, DVD, and PSP versions of the movie that are coming out on January 5th!  Here’s an image of the advertisement:

Heh heh... she looks like she's eating my fishing pole.. xD

Guide:

Well, first you have to enter the advertisement (obviously xD), then talk to the guy with the crazy brown hair (who is probably Flint).  He says his machine that makes food fall from the sky is broken.  OH NOEZ!  NO MOAR FOOD FALLING DOWN FROM THE SKY?!?! THIS IS A DISASTER! D:

He says the machine is located at the top of the “dangerous” ice cream mountain.  I mean, if it’s made out of ice cream, how dangerous could it be?  I could even eat it if I wanted to. >:D Flint tells you to go to the helicopter to bring the machine back to him.

Now jump on different items (unless you can fly) to the left until you see a helicopter in the crack of the building.  Click on it to enter it.  You have to shut down the machine by flying to the mountain!  They tell you to be cautious and watch out for falling food… hmm….I haven’t had breakfast yet… >:D  Press the start button to begin.

Now you are at the top of the mounta- ICE CREAM!! 😀 Unfortunately, though, your poptropican cannot eat it. D: The horror!  To be on top of an ice cream mountain and not be able to eat it? THIS IS TORTURE! Well, anyway, jump on the very top and click on the machine.  Now it should be raining meatballs! :O But wait, if the machine to make food fall from the sky doesn’t work, then HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?  Is it… could it be… magic? :O

Well, now you have to click on the pink spoon in the green ice cream.  Once you do that, you should be sliding down the ice cream mountain on a spoon.  Oh, how I wish I could just eat the whole mountain…. xD You can move your cursor to move your poptropican.  Try to dodge the falling food (even though I know you want to eat it sooo bad).  You have three chances, and you can see your number of chances by the amount of meatballs on the left.

You just press the left button on your mouse to make your poptropican jump over the food on the mountain.  Continue dodging, jumping, and sliding down the mountain until this screen pops up:

I want to eat those costumes sooo bad... :O

Now you win two costumes, as shown above: the Spaghetti Outfit, and the Sugar Cone Outfit! Yum.. 😀

Spy Next Door:

This advertisement is for the new movie coming up on January 15th, which I want to watch! xD

Guide:

Once you’re in the ad, talk to the crying poptropican with glasses (who is named Bob 😀 ).  He reveals that he’s really a government agent and tells you the kids he is babysitting accidentally downloaded secret files. :O The spies are trying to get to it! :O OH NOEZ!

Bob needs help babysitting and keeping the kids and their pet pig (aww… cute wittle piggy… :3) safe from the spies.  Now, what spy would be mean enough to harm a cute little pig? D:< After he tells you that, a screen should pop up telling you to stop the enemy spies!  You only have a short time to find the children, find the cute pig, and fix the defenses before the spies arrive.  You have to click and hold on gadgets to fill their repair gauge.  One the gauge is full, the gadget will be fixed!

Press the start button to begin.  You now have to quickly move around the house and get to all of the children and the pig and also hurry and “fix” all of the defenses (you can tell which one is a defense when it looks spy-like and the word fix should pop up when you hover your cursor over it).  This should include the TV, the plant with the flamethrower, and the lamp.

When you are done with this, this screen should pop up, telling you that you won!

You win a Flamethrower wand, and a Super Secret Video File, which is similar to the movie room from the Monsters, Inc. ad.  The video file shows a preview of the movie, which is often used as a commercial.  The Flamethrower wand shoots out fire, and it matches the color of your electrifier, if you have it on!  😀

Enjoy your prizes, everyone!
