Ghost Story Island, Great Pumpkin Island, Poptropica Store, Vampire's Curse Island

The 31st is finally here!

Hey, everyone. It’s RD here, and I’d like to start this post by thanking everyone that wished me well :D. I’m getting a lot better. Today’s post is obviously dated on the 31st, and therefore…

Halloween!

That’s right, the long tradition of the Celtic Holiday Sahmain spread down throughout European history until it reached modern day traditions. It’s a shortened version of “All Hallows Eve”; but I’m sure you’re all out of history class by now, so onto Poptropica’s Halloween scares!

The creators gave us a reminder post on how we could choose to celebrate a few Halloween thrills. You can catch three adventures that are put on Poptropica. There are many more costume cards you can also purchase for this. The creators said that they were “going as zombies this year.”

Edit (slantedfish): Check out the Creators’ avatars on their blog! A purple background and green skin – great zombie costumes, guys. I did catch Hades and Master Mime with just their normal ones instead, though. :c Even Thirsty Whale, who never posts anymore, managed to join in.

        

(And now for the Poptropica Halloween festivities…)

First up we’re all familiar with the first Halloween quest: Great Pumpkin Island. It’s, as you all know, based off of the beloved Peanuts comic strip where Linus awaits the arrival of the Great Pumpkin, but does so hopelessly every year. Poor Linus 😦

Inside this adventure, you’ll be taken through the world of Peanuts and as we also all know…Snoopy! So head on down to Great Pumpkin Island for a few classic old games with the Peanuts gang. Click here if you need a guide.

Who could forget Ghost Story Island? The thrills and chills of an old New England haunting surely will kindle the spooky thoughts that arises in the player’s daring mind. Will you be brave enough to uncover the mystery of this island and set the wandering apparitions free? Enter if you dare! Click here if you need a guide.

Ghost Story Island

Want to donate blood…to vampires? You got it, just make sure to bring some garlic along with you in case they try to take too much xD. Vampire’s Curse Island is based on the protagonist’s efforts to bravely save a villager captured by the elusive count! And remember to not get hexed by its curse. Click here if you need a guide.

Vampire's Curse Island

Finally, who could forget the very first Halloween adventure that we all embarked upon? Enter an old and abandoned house to find out what spooky atmospheres you must uncover to discover clues. The Haunted House is a destination for a description of such. Eventually everything leads up to an untimely discovery somewhere near the mansion. That is all, since I know everyone despises a spoiler alert.

Although it is technically not an island like the rest, Haunted House remains the first Halloween adventure back in time when Poptropica was still expanding and growing to the virtual realm it inhabits today! Click here if you need a guide.

Poptropica sure has grown over the years, and will continue to. All these islands are completely free, even the Haunted House as it became so some time ago. Members may choose to venture out on an extra quest for some of these islands if they want an extra challenge and extension to the ghostly plot. Have fun at these islands!

Lastly, the creators gave us a reminder we can all purchase a variety of Halloween costumes and abilities in the store. Maybe you want to have a ghost follower as they did come out with many years ago. Or maybe you just wish to see all your neighboring friends turn to bones. Perhaps you have a craving to play an island where you’re chased by the living dead through some abandoned street corner. They got it all :D.

And as the creators put in the final words for this spooky night “Try not to eat too much candy.” No really, try not to xD…unless you’re not afraid of heartburn or strange dreams in which you’re being chased by the Hershey’s Bar you just ate. Been there, done that. Lastly, don’t forget to…

have an amazing Halloween!

Just to get into the spirit, I thought you might all like to enjoy something that Charles Schultz, the author of Peanuts, sketched about the Great Pumpkin:

A stroll down Halloweens past!

Hey guys, it’s Rainbow Dash here, and I’m sorry I haven’t gotten a chance to post very often lately. I am feeling much better, thanks to those of you who emailed me and such :). Lately I’ve been going in and out of places, and busy with some high school stuff if I get a chance to go to school for prolonged stretches of time; but enough about me.

The creators gave us a short and sweet reminder that Halloween’s getting pretty close, and I’m sure they’ve given us much already. It’s scare season, again! What better way to celebrate Halloween than by visiting the first Halloween based adventure that the creators unveiled… Haunted House!

This short quest will lead you through many puzzles and item hunts in order to solve the mystery of the old and worn down house. Trust me, there’s a really cool ending to it to match the spirit of Halloween.

Pick up Haunted House at the Poptropica Store today! You can enjoy old times again, or try it out for the first time if you haven’t played it before. So if you’re brave enough, go in and find out the truth. I promise you won’t be disappointed. If you need help, the Island Help page lists a guide, video, and info page for the Haunted House.

I know I’m certainly in the mood for Halloween :D. So what gets you in the mood for the season? I remember getting about a truckload of candy…then losing it to my pets a day later…did you know that the holiday was originally Hallow’s Eve? Western traditions were inspired by American and Medieval folklore such as Irvington’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a book I’m currently reading. I guess you could say my favorite part about it would have to be “teenage witches” xD. Share your thoughts below.

RD out, have a nice day.

The House is Open

Poptropica’s big Halloween event of the year, the Haunted House mini-quest, is now available! (Don’t be scared to log in; it won’t harm you!)

A huge thanks goes to MuddyDragon for helping out with the instructions guide, which you can read by visiting this link: https://poptropica.wordpress.com/haunted-house-guide/!!

Also, there is a Tinker Bell advertisement building for some ages on Main Street (any island)! Check out the fairies!

Haunted House Out Now!

The Haunted House is now out so grab your pitchforks, grab your cell phones, it’s time to visit the Haunted House. Your task is to use the furniture around the large and haunted mansion to find the four treasures of the dead. Beware of the spooky ghost hanging around the shower… (Hint: It doesn’t play any role in this mini-quest!)

The Haunted House can be accessed via the blimp (any island) by clicking on the green Hyde guy in the bottom left corner of the map. Note that the ‘Haunted House’ isn’t an actual location, because when you’re there, the map shows the island you just came from through the blimp. Sort of strange and mysterious. 😛

On completion of the mission you will be rewarded with 50 credits! Also at the end there is a HUGE selection of Halloween clothing for you including awesome hand-held items to help you get into the Halloween spirit. There is even a Grim Reaper and a scythe! Even better, pressing the space bar while wielding the scythe will hold it up (special action). Oh goody goody!

On a side note: Codien is back from his world trip. You can read what he got up to in his blog, which can be accessed via the PHB’s blogroll on the right.

Wow. I’m getting really scared ’bout this haunted house thing (NOT!!). So in the amazing pic and sneak-peek-kinda-thing, we see what is to be The much awaited Deadly Haunted House, and a poor little angel crying. Poor angel, I think the Devil Himself got her. I really am getting impatient with these people. CURSE YOU, CREATORS!!! GOD, HURRY UP!! Hopefully, The Creators are gonna make a giant Halloween bash. I’m just totally excited about Halloween. Though I haven’t customized my Poptropica character (Yet), I’m real excited about Halloween. Like I said, It would be cool if the Creators made a  Halloween Par– HEY, WHY DON’T WE MAKE ONE!! Lol, I’m kidding. It wouldn’t really be possible. The multiplayer rooms have different servers (Though, looking at the number of readers the PHB has, it wouldn’t really matter), and A multiverse has a limit of people it can carry. Oh well, Creators, If you are reading my post, MAKE THE PARTY PLACE!! Also, My elder brother Aldraz, has entered the Web!! He’s made a blog which you can view over here. He’s also made an account on the PHF. Unfortunately, he won’t be as active as me. He’s in 10th grade, and he’s darn busy.

Thanks to MuddyDragon for updating us on this piece of news!

So I come to the end of this post. We are always waiting for Halloween to come, and we may even customize the PHB for Halloween.

OFF TOPIC UPDATE: This is A PHB Gravatar MILESTONE!! All of the PHB Staff members have changed their gravatars to non-poptropica Avatars!! Hooray!! Hijuyo has changed theirs to a juicebox-and-cheeseball pic, Smockers has a rock cantaloupe saying “Smockers”, Codien has his same splatter kinda thing, I have the same chibi thing (I’m Gonna CHANGE it!), GE has a manga kinda thing..  And motion has that smirkin’ human.

Saying Good By, And Also wondering why on earth Poptropica this text is in Blue Font,

Gazek.
