Advertisements, Counterfeit Island, Sneak Peeks

Refreshing Drinks and Disney Dogs!

Ahh… that sure was a nice cup of water.

Yes, water = food = French-like Island sneak peek! Thanks, Funny Penguin, for the news! Anyway, Comic Kid, one of the Poptropica Creators, posted this today:

Blog Post Title: Time for a Drink
Description: On my long travels I get pretty thirsty. Luckily I found some punch and water from these coolers on the side of the road. Delicious!

Also, there’s a new advertisement building on 24 Carrot, Super Power, and Spy Island, called “Disney Space Buddies Dog Park”! Thanks, Shiny Leaf, for telling us about the new ad, and Director Lion (Gentle Lion) for informing us on the locations! It’s so famous there’s even a post about it on the Creators’ Blog – and it’s rare that they actually talk about the advertisements! I think that maybe Disney, the company being advertised for their Space Buddies movie, paid extra money to have their ad building advertised on the Creators’ Blog too (it’s just a guess though). You can read their post here: http://blog.poptropica.com/2009/02/where-no-poptropican-has-gone-before.html

Here’s a cut-and-paste image I took of the outside part of the plane-shaped advertisement (yes, it may be a little uneven): 😛

Inside it, you can do a mission. Walk into the room behind the man in the space suit, and click on the green button next to the space helmet. The doors to the room will close, but the door on the ceiling opens up, letting you fly through space! Fly up there!disneyspacebuddiessuit

Your task is to find the 5 missing space dogs around outer space (actually, the black area around the ad building). If you find one, all you have to do it touch it (or crash it) to transport it back to the building. The bad news is, there is a limit of time – “oxygen” – you have to find all five space dogs. The good news is, there is no limit on how many times you can try the mission in case you don’t succeed the first time. The bad news is, there are a couple meteors out in space that, if you crash into, will “WHACK” you like the criminals of Super Power Island. Good luck!

Oh, and there’s prizes too (yay, more good stuff!). But the bad news (again) is that it’s for a limited time only, which means it’s only temporary. Anyway, here they are:

  • Disney: Space Buddies Space Suit (see the figure on the right)
    An awesome white space suit (it doesn’t have any special effects, though).
  • Disney: Space Buddies Firecracker
    When you use it (by pressing the “Use” button on its item card), a firecracker will fly around the screen, then at the end, shows the “Disney Space Buddies” logo.

By the way, we are apparently still having a problem controlling what we say when it comes to new posts on the Creators’ Blog. Yep, you know what I mean – and this notice, now appearing for the 5th time, will tell you if you don’t get it!

Special Note: It is not a race to be the first to tell everyone about a new post on the Creators’ Blog. We’ve had many comments saying the same thing (”New post on Creators’ Blog!!!!”) and it is very annoying. If someone has already mentioned it, don’t bother to say it again – it’s not necessary. If people continue to spam and repeat the same thing over an over again, it will show us that you cannot handle this and we will stop giving out credits. Please comment appropriately. Thanks!

Spy cam sneak peek (for Spy Island?)

New sneak peek! The title is “Are you being watched?” and the image is called “spyCam”! You can view the image here: http://blog.poptropica.com or here:

Because of the word “spy” in the image name, this could be a sneak peek for Spy Island! Post a comment here and let me know what you think. 🙂

UPDATE:  This ended up being one of the decorations in the Headquarters of Spy Island, Main Street.

Spy Island

Spy Island is coming soon!

There will be a new island coming soon – Spy Island! Here is the description from Poptropica:

A new sinister menace has been discovered by Poptropica’s three top spies, but now the spies have vanished! You will need the skills of a cunning spy to rescue them and discover all the clues. Get ready for gadgets, sneaky moves, and hair raising adventures!

If you’d like to see the description and a few images of the upcoming island, click here.

Also, an image of Spy Island with the words “Coming Soon” on it can be seen next to all the other islands on the map that shows up by going to the blimp on Poptropica.
