New Islands

Brand New Tutorial Island!

Update: For our official walkthrough page for this island, see our Hub Island Guide!

Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here with the details of a new island!

If you checked out today’s Timmy Failure code post, you may have read about a mysterious blank medallion entitled “Hub Island” spotted by our very own Slanted Fish. A little while after the post released, I decided to go check the medallion list again and saw an updated medallion!

HubIslandTutorialI immediately went to the map and spotted this new island…

HomeIsland

As it turns out, it’s almost exactly like the Tutorial Island on the Poptropica mobile app, and now it’s here on the online version! I dropped into the island to find myself with this explorer:

BridgeTutorial

I soon went exploring around the island to find multiple different buildings. The first building shown here is the Shop. If you decided to enter in, it brings you to the Poptropica Store.

The second building shown here is the Arcade. Entering it brings you to the Pathfinders tribe common room, no matter which tribe you’re in.

The final building shown is the New You building. Inside, you can alter your appearance!

You can pull the lever (shown in the picture on the right) and the curtain on the top will drop down to allow you to customize with endless costumes. If you click the curtain (shown in the picture on the left) you can use a Colorizer, which allows you to change your skin and hair colors.

If you exit the New You building and go to the left, you visit the tutorial portion of the island. You will first see the platform below:

TutorialIsland1

With a little exploring you will come upon this woman missing her lucky wrench.

TutorialIsland2

Simply look up on a nearby tree to find the Wrench and give it to her.

TutorialIsland3

She then offers to show you how to customize (because it is a tutorial island). If you continue left into a new room, and then all the way to the left of that room, you’ll see the explorer once again. He’ll mention that he wants to give you something but he can’t seem to find it.

This, of course, is the medallion. You can then go around the two areas in search for each of the parts. There are eight in total and they’re pretty easy to spot – they’re the glowing yellow chunks lying around.

Once you find all of these pieces, return back to the original location of the explorer, and he’ll award you with the Tutorial Island Medallion (and 150 credits!).

So, that’s an overview of the new Tutorial Island! Since you get 150 credits for completing this island, be sure to complete the island for a little more change to spend in the Poptropica Store. Plus, I feel like if I was a new player, this island would be quite helpful. 😀

So, what do you think about this tutorial island? Comment below!

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.

The Dr. Hare Glitch

😦 Update: This glitch does not work anymore. 😦

The secrets to Dr. Hare will be revealed. The secrets will be revealed...
The secret has been revealed.

The PHB Dr. Hare Glitch

[Credits to Codien for finding it.]

 Are you sitting around Poptropica, waiting for ages till that new island comes out? Have you got nothing else to do?
Then why don’t you try “The PHB Dr. Hare Glitch” on for size. You will be hairy in no time.

NOTE:

  • This glitch will only work if you haven’t completed the 24 Carrot quest. Make a new user to try it out though.
  • This glitch will change your whole costume into Dr. Hare. Remember that anything you were wearing will be lost.
  • The glitch will make you turn into to a boy even if your a girl because Dr. Hare is a boy. If you want to become a girl again press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [R] until you change to a girl. Remember this randomises everything and you will loose the Dr. Hare costume and you wont be able to get it back.

Follow these directions to complete The PHB Dr. Hare Glitch:

  1. Head over to 24 Carrot Island via the blimp.
  2. Complete most of the quest until you get to the end when you are about to enter the codes onto the computer.
    [For more information and help on completing 24 Carrot Quest click here.]
  3. Enter the codes to become control of Dr. Hares ship.
  4. Now the aim here is to crash into the asteroids to destroy his ship. When you crash into the asteroids his face will pop up shouting at you.
  5. When his face pops up click and hold [Ctrl] + [Shift] and rapidly press [S] at the same time. This should change his skin color/colour.
  6. When his face pops up again press the same buttons to change his skin again. (This is just to make sure you did it the first time.)
    [MAC Users] Press [Command] + [Shift] + [S]
  7. Crash his ship completely and you should be out of the game. BUT WAIT! I’m still myself!
  8. Head down to the bottom and walk out the door on the left. You should now feel and look different. 😛
  9. Go into items and use the telaporter to go back to the top.
  10. CONGRATULATIONS! You are now Dr. Hare!

[!COMPLETE!]

PHB Sneak Peaks: The Dead King

March 22nd, 2009 #9

[-!CLASSIFIED!-]


-Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks-

Welcome to another wonderful week of ‘Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks’. These posts are posted every week on Sundays. In every new post there will be stories that only we have. And only we post them. These stories are classified and are very secret.
This week’s story is ”The Dead King”, It is about the mysterious Pharaoh coming to life.

-The Dead King-
A Mummy!…I mean, A DADDY!

Out jumped Codien with a flashlight in hand, scouting the area for any signs. Codien had been searching for lost treasures. So far he had found none. He slowly shuffled down the cold dark floors. Raising his hand, shaking, his flashlight illuminated a dead end with a golden plaque. It read “DO NOT AWAKEN THE PHARAOH”. Well that’s strange. Codien couldn’t see any pharaohs around, how could he possibly wake one up. He chuckled, then stopped – he heard a noise. Breathing deeply Codien took the courage to turn around slowly. His flashlight lit up the passage he had just walked through but nothing was there. With a sigh of relief he took a step back. CRACK! He stepped on a old bone. Codien stopped. He could hear deep raspy breathing. Sweat beads building on his forehead he once again turned to face the golden plaque. Expecting there to be the giant, evil, smelly old Pharaoh breathing down on him. He took a deep breath, ready to scream. No one was there.

Codien let out a puff of air. He was shaking all over. He lent, half collapsing out of breath against the golden plaque. He really didn’t want to see an old wrapped up Pharaoh. Codien shot up. He heard a faint click coming from behind the wall. Before Codien could inspect what had happened the wall rotated with a whoosh pushing Codien to the other side with it.

On the ground sat Codien with his knees to his chest and his head in his hands. He didn’t want to look up. He knew what was just ahead of him. Sitting on a throne or slowly coming out of a sarcophagus, moanning with his arms outstretched all wrapped up in cloth. He looked up slowly preparing for the worse. He took in a deep breath and – “ARGH!” There in the corner of the room stood a Pharaoh. All glorified with gold and jewelery with his hands above his head wearing a creapy face about to tear Codien to shreds.

Codien took in another breath preparing to scream again. When a noise amplified from somewhere echoed through the room. “Hello. Welcome to the Pharaoh exhibit. Here we have a replica Pharaoh as he would of dressed back then. Beside him is his sarcophagus and of course inside is the Pharaoh himself. Please enjoy the exhibit and PLEASE DON”T TOUCH ANYTHING!”

Raising his head slowly he realised the Pharaoh was just a model. Laughing Codien strolled over to the Pharaoh and examined his outfit. It was amazing. Such detail and colour. He then looked at the sarcophagus. “Wow! I wonder if it gets a little stuffy?” Codien chuckled turning to the Pharaoh with a smile.

“Actually it does.” murmured the Pharaoh.

 

Mummys! Arn’t they just a treat? Well i can tell Codiens not a fan of them as you can tell from his encounter. So Pharaoh should be coming out in Astro-Knights we think. But how on earth does that make sense. Well this is a comment by Rachel that might be able to show how.

Do you think this is for Astro Knight, or is this for something else? I do agree, it looks a LOT like time-tangled island…
I wonder if the “French island” isn’t actually French at all. That picture with the statues looks like its from Rome, and of course in the French Picture you can see the flag (and crepes). Maybe this one is from Japan (or china, if they did it wrong) and the island has something to do with worlds!

Worlds! Maybe Astro-Knights will be about travelling to different worlds. It would make sense, we have a spaceship and we are going to different planets to track down the King and Queen. Or maybe these Sneak Peaks are for a totally new island that we don’t know about yet. Only time can tell.

So that’s my Sneak Peaks this week. Next week might be the last PHB Sneak Peak because PHB is working on something different but similar that will come out every 2 weeks and will involve YOU.  

See you next week. Hopefully.

When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are,
Anything your heart desires,
Will come to you.

Yes, last night Codien saw a shooting star and wished for his PHB Sneak Peak to come true. Look what happened.

Poptropica have released yet another advertisement from…Disney (I’m a little worried about Disney’s presence right now but we still get awesome advertisements from them.)

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of Disney’s Pinocchio.

Inside the building is a quiz game, a synopsis of the movie, a video of its 70th anniversary, and of course a Pinocchio costume and a Fairy Godmother Costume.

Note: A lot of you have been saying you can’t see the advertisement. This is because it is only for Poptropican’s with an age between 9-11. So if you can’t see the Pinocchio Building its is because your age is to high. Simply make a new user to view the advertisement or go into multiplayer rooms, there are bound to be people with the costume in there.

You can visit the official site for Pinocchio here:  http://adisney.go.com/disneyvideos/animatedfilms/pinocchio/
