Guest Posts, Poptropica Labs (Land)

Props to you, Land-makers

(This is a guest post by PHB reader Captain Spencer, who contributed to part of the PHB’s Poptropica Labs/Land guide, which you can take a look at for more info about Land. Enjoy! –slantedfish)

Hey guys, Spencer here. I’ve been mentioned on this blog before, and you can find the post here. Slanted Fish featured my Poptropica Land video, and in a few weeks’ time, it got over a thousand views! So props to Fishy, everybody. Anyway, I’m here to explain the new “Props” section of Poptropica Land! Below, you can see the list of available Props and the levels you unlock them at:

When you land on Land (heh), you’ll start off the same as before, and you’ll need to mine Poptanium in order to start unlocking the coolest of the cool things. If you aren’t quite familiar with all that yet, check out the PHB’s Poptropica Land guide to get started with the Svadilfari hammer and mining Poptanium.

Once you have the hammer, click the hammer button (Mining Mode) at the bottom left of your screen and start aiming at what blocks you wish to destroy. Sometimes you’ll come across shiny blue atomish moleculeness called Poptanium. The more Poptanium you earn, the more levels, biomes, and props (furniture) you unlock! To unlock all Props, you’ll need 330 Poptanium.

lands2Now, once you get a bootiful amount of Poptanium, you will unlock Level 1. (Every 15 pieces of Poptanium, you level up.) Select the paintbrush (“Painting Mode”), then select the + button.

lands3Now click on the category of Props (the chair icon to the left). You’ll see a menu for all the available Props (plus, the menus now have a whiter, flatter look!).

*crouches behind a tree* How the heck did you find me? (Oh, and if you’re wondering how on Poptropica I got that smoke bomb, it’s from Arabian Nights Island.) 😛

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, Poptropica Labs (Land), Trivia

Charlie post, Pop birthdate, more Land & music from Jeff Heim

Hey Poptropicans! This is going to be another mega-post on the many Poptropica-related things happening recently – but while you’re reading the PHB, don’t miss out on the new BoxTrolls ad, Survival Ep. 5 for members, the upcoming “Home” feature, and more news from the posts below! 😀

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Poptropica: A Story You Can Play

catcf 50th

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved story, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Poptropica has been revealing some of their creative process in turning the timeless tale into one of its many Islands. The second post of what will be a three-part series is now up on RoaldDahl.com, so click here to check it out the whole thing – and here’s a little excerpt from their post:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a beloved story. No wonder it’s been made into two movies and a stage musical (and even other video games). Because we consider story to be the most important part of a Poptropica Island, this, too, was both a challenge and an opportunity when bringing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Poptropica.

How do we re-tell a familiar tale, full of beloved characters and situations, while adding an unpredictable new character: the player? How do we make the player a part of the story without changing the story, but allowing the player the sense of freedom and control that a video game requires?

[To read the rest of Poptropica’s entry, click here!]

If you haven’t seen their first post, you can click here to read it, and check out their gallery of behind-the-scenes images on the Creators’ Blog or right here on the PHB. A great story complemented by a great island adventure with its own unique spin – and if you’re planning on playing it, our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island Guide may come in handy! 🙂

When exactly is Poptropica’s birthday?

Since its third year, every year, Poptropica has celebrated its birthday in the month of September – but never with an exact birthday date mentioned. This year will be Poptropica’s 7th year, and in response to a question from Slippery Raptor, Poptropica revealed over Twitter that Poptropica’s birth took the entire month of September (2007) — hence the celebrations being not on any one single day.

pop 7th bday date

This year, however, they’re planning to have their festivities on the 18th – which is this Thursday! We can probably expect a birthday costume with a “7” b’day balloon, and maybe some balloons in the common rooms. In the past, they’ve also re-released retired items — we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for this year’s party! :mrgreen:

More featured Land creations

Poptropica Land: alpha version 2 may have been around for a while now, but the Creators are constantly being impressed by all the elaborate creations Poptropica members are making. Here are the latest to be featured on their official Twitter (click to enlarge images):

More Poptropica music from Jeff Heim

The PHB has previously mentioned Jeff Heim, Poptropica’s resident (and very talented) music composer — and while the recent release of Poptropica’s first ever music album may be unavailable to some due to cost, listening to Jeff’s Soundcloud tracks is totally free!

If you haven’t checked out his Poptropica collection in a while, you may now notice that he’s added several new tracks, mostly owing to the recent Survival and Mission Atlantis episodes.

In the comments of the “Science Fair” track, you may even notice Jeff’s response to HPuterpop saying that he “uploaded this track in part because I noticed you used it at the end of your Survival 3 Walk-through video”! Awesome.

One of my personal favorites, though, is the jaunty little tune that is PoptropiCon’s main theme. It just builds up to sound really epic as you get into it, plus it can get pretty catchy. 😀

Don’t miss out on all the other cool things happening in Poptropica lately — you can catch up with all the PHB posts below! Keep on popping on, Poptropicans.
