Reality TV: Wild Safari Island just released

Hey Poptropicans! BIG news…

The new island is here, and it’s called Reality TV: Wild Safari! Yes, there are similarities with the original Reality TV Island released in 2010—but it’s also its own island in other ways. We’ll cover more in a future review post.

It’s no blimp, but I guess I could live with this helicopter spin palace.

Right now, you won’t find RTV 2 on the island map, but it’s completely playable on CoolMathGames.com. You don’t even need a membership to play!

Promo screens on Poptropica and on social media are calling it a “preview,” suggesting there’s more to come — but as far as we can tell, the whole island is already on CoolMathGames. After all, you even get an island medallion at the end. Suppose we’ll find out when the island releases on Poptropica!

This spin-off island is a quick one, and here on the PHB, our Reality TV: Wild Safari Island Guide is already ready for your perusal. If anything, there is some interesting trivia to uncover about some of this island’s inhabitants!

Check out Reality TV: Wild Safari Island on CoolMathGames.com and let us know what you think in the comments!

Only for the most daring/bored of all.

It’s no April Fool’s joke. Poptropica Members will have Early Access to Mythology Island beginning this Thursday, April 1!
(information from the Poptropica Facebook page!)

And as stated on its information page, Mythology Island will be open to all on April 29, 2010. Almost a month away. x_x

Today, Dr. Hare showed us on the Creators’ Blog that your Island Medallion card for Reality TV Island actually keeps track of the amount of seasons you have dominated in on the island! Unless you beat Hippie Harry to fame and fortune, in which case I despise you.

Exhibit A: A common result of extreme boredness.

Dr. Hare continues to mock us in his post by challenging us to beat his high score of a whopping five seasons won. He then questions us how many times we have completed Reality TV Island, the latest island brought to you by the creators. He also probably should’ve asked us how many times we have been way too busy to even play Reality TV Island. 🙂

As the lazy boy I am, I am a 1-time winner. Tell us: how many times have you completed Reality TV Island? Haven’t even completed one season? What are you doing then? Head out to that island and compete! With guide in hand, you’re sure to overtake the bunny himself.

Got honey?

[Update] DaVinci: Everyone, there is a new PCB post. I don’t think it’s big enough to merit another PHB post, but there is some pretty sweet info in it – regarding the upcoming membership feature! For example, the Creators hint that “This is key, since we are planning on releasing some pretty sweet islands this year!”

Regarding the many concerns about Poptropica itself still being free, the PCB mentions – “Remember, even if you don’t have credits or membership, the Poptropica Islands are always 100% FREE for all to play!” So, this is ultimately awesome. :D ;)

There’s a sweet new advertisement on every island on Poptropica… for EVERY AGE. :O I don’t think this has ever happened before!  This is a historical moment *tear*.  Um, anyway, it’s the Honey Nut Cheerios: Honey Defender Game Ad (Thanks Bobitator for the update!).  This advertisement doesn’t have any plot or task; there’s just a costume, a video, and a quiz game. 😀 You just go inside the huge hive and jump around.

TAKE THAT DUMMY! *hits with fishing pole* >:D

*announcer voice* Now you can become Buzz, the honey defender!  Explore, collect, and defend the honey! >:D Yeah, I just took that from the video ’cause I was bored. 😀 When you click the link to the game, you are directed to the game on Funbrain.  You can also play it at: http://honeydefender.millsberry.com/, although to play the full game you have to put in a code from your cereal box.  You can play the demo version, though.  I can’t play either because I don’t have unity web player. xD

In other news, there’s another sneak peek of Reality TV Island posted in the Creators’ Blog:

Shuffleboard

Still stuck on this island, I found some people playing a game with small sliding pucks. I don’t think the mime is going to win this one.

It shows some kind of weird game that to me looks similar to pool or something… IDK.  The characters above are probably the contestants you are going against in RTV.  Some new characters are the chef, the elder woman, train/bus driver (I’m guessing), and the elder man on the right.  I think the place where the mime is is where you would be… I’m not sure, it’s just a random guess. 😀

This is all for now!  Be sure to check out the below posts:

Kickin’ it with the Creators

Hey guys!

Coderkid here. It seems like the Creators have LOTS of free time all of a sudden…*mystery music plays* Anyway, the Creators made 2 blog posts, IN A ROW. I don’t think I’ve seen them this active before… o_O However, here are dar dem updates.

#1 – Reality TV Island Sneak Peak!

By now, we can definitely say for sure that Reality TV island has not been abandoned, and perhaps was even resurrected because of our protests. This post by Dr.Hare shows us a shot of RTV that we’ve seen before (see this post by Comic Kid), except we can see that they’ve changed the sign…here’s the new post.

Knock, Knock!

Who’s there?
Watson
Watson who?
Watson TV today?

Here’s the other post (it’s an old one, but it shows the same scene), by Comic Kid Oct. 1, 2008.

Comfortable Living

Here is a sneak peak from an upcoming island.

– Posted by Comic Kid.

So they changed the sign…why? Who knows. 😛 Probably a change in plot…

#2 – New Wallpaper!

Soon after Dr. Hare made his post with the updated sign, Shark Boy makes this post about the Counterfeit Island wallpaper!

Counterfeit Island Wallpaper

If you’re a fan of Counterfeit Island, you’ll enjoy this new Poptropica wallpaper!

– Posted by Shark Boy.

Pretty spiffy wallpaper, eh? xD Me likes…but I doubt I’d want to be spending any time with the Black Widow. Mostly simply because she’s EVIL.

So what do you make of all these updates? It seems like the Creators are working on 2 islands at the same time…Reality TV island and *gag* M-m-mythology island. Eww…

But anyway, post your interesting or creative comments and questions in the comments beloooowwwww…

Oh and Creators, I know you probably hate me, or at least have disdain for me (:P), but if you read this pleeze bring the Scavenger Hunts back. And if you don’t, just know that I know where EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU LIVE. I’m not kidding. That is all. 😀

Not Boar-ing

Hey people!  Green Seal here. 😀 There’s a new post on the Poptropica Creator’s Blog, posted by Hazmat Hermit (Thanks for the update, PerfectStorm57!):

Getting Boar-ed?

As a hermit I try to avoid meeting people but sometimes it’s hard to find a place to be alone. When I reached this island in the middle of the ocean, I figured I was the only person around for miles. I soon realized this place is full of some of the craziest people I’ve ever seen! Why would anyone run around with a jar of water on their head? It seems dangerous, especially when there’s an angry boar out to get you. I’m going to monitor the situation and see what I can find out.

0_o That boar is.. uh, creepy-looking.  This post is probably a sneak peek of Reality TV.  That jar looks about the same size as that poptropican. 0_o How can she carry that?  Well, remember in the when they said you will be competing or something like that?  This race is probably one of the things you will compete in, and I have to say that I would not like to be chased by a boar with a jar the size of me. xD

By the way, news in the Poptropica Help Forums say that the PHF has been featured in TV!  Could this be true? 0_o Check this thread for more info: http://thephf.com/forums/showthread.php?518-OMG-the-PHF-was-on-TV!!!!!!

This is all for now! 😀

Boo Updates

Hello all, it’s been too long. For everyone new that does not know me i’m Codien the graphics guy here at the PHB.
I’ve been having exams and too much work to focus on this site, but don’t worry i’m off school in only 2 more days, then you will have me all to yourselves for as long as you want. Just don’t kill me.

_

First update i would like to announce is the new Poptropica Help Blog header. This was created lovingly by me in memory of my old headers 😦 [Read what happened at my blog]. I hope you all like it. Give me feedback and tell me what i could add or improve. I WUV BLUE! ❤

[booChar.png]

Over at the PCB they posted a new post about the Boo costume, obtained at the advertisement; ‘Monsters Inc’. I’m sure all of you guys already knew this and are already scaring monsters with your cute smile and costume. “Mike Wasalski!”

A third thing to add to this small yet charming post is a small secret brewing in the Poptropica underground world. The creators are busily making a new thing that not even i can talk about!
All i can say is it involves a profile and a ranking system and different options of what food you like, favorite color, how many games you’ve won, and thats pretty much everything there doing.

But don’t panic! BOO! They are going to release Reality TV island soon. All will they. *scary music play*
