Ancient Warriors and Info Pages

As you probably know, after they beat Poptropolis Games, members get to play a members-only bonus quest.  And, non-members, don’t feel too bad.  The bonus quest is pretty boring.  All you do is wrestle with some old ancient warrior dude who thinks he can steal your title as champion.  You beat him.  He’s gone.  Nothing amazing.  Even the costume that you get from it is pretty horrible.

Warriors, come out and play!

Poptropica Members who have completed the bonus quest on Poptropolis Games have been rewarded with a cool prize — an outfit as old as the city of Poptropolis itself! Winning the gold medallion is one thing. Toppling an ancient warrior who has been stewing at the bottom of the ocean for the past century, well, that’s quite another.

Yeah, like I said, pretty horrible.

Anyway, earlier today, LP did a post announcing the new island that’s coming to Poptropica!  So, with the new island having been announced, I thought that I would do my traditional tour of the info page thing.

When I first heard the name of the island it reminded me of Monopoly.  Isn’t there a property called Boardwalk?  …Or is that just my imagination?

Anyway, here’s the description of the island.

Here’s what the picture says, in case you can’t read it: It’s summertime, but the living ain’t easy for a wimpy kid.  When Greg and Rowley visit the boardwalk for a relaxing beach vacation, they never expect to run afoul of thieving teens, ravenous seagulls, and crooked carnies.  Only you can clean up Greg’s mess before vacation ends!

It’s always up to us to save the day.  Never can do it themselves for once, can they?

And, following the tradition that the recent past islands have started, there’s a members-only bonus quest at the end of the island.

Here’s what the picture says: Before you go, there’s one more task to be done.  A devious gamer has left an embarrassing message about Greg on a high-score list in the arcade.  Can you master the game, save Greg’s dignity, and become the boardwalk champion?

Here’s the little picture that went with the description of the bonus quest:

Also members get a Wimpy Boardwalk gear pack.  The gear pack is made up of the Beachgoer costume, the Heat Wave power, and the Beach Umbrella item.

There are also some pictures of the island on the info-page.

There’s no release date on the info-page, but it does say that it’s coming out this summer.  Very specific, right?

Shark Tooth Island, Parts 1-3

I’ve made some video guides for Shark Tooth Island!  There are three parts to the guide, hence the name of the post.

Anyway, you can see these three videos by clicking HERE.

To see more, in my opinion, awesome video guides, just go to the Video Guides page.  And remember that I’m always working on a guide, so I’ll be able to add some more videos real soon!

Poptropolis Island…Thoughts…

First of all, I would like to say that non-members can only play shot put in the demo. 

Second, I won second place in that event.

Thirdly, I think the people poptropicans cheering in the background look nuts, especially when that guy on top bobs his head up and down.

Fourthly, I am so excited for Greg’s appearance and the announcement of him on Wednesday, the day before school lets out for the summer, which is a week of exams.

Fifthly, I am excited for no school tomorrow! Memorial Day!!!

Sixth, and finally, I would like to say…

Poptropica Members get all the benefits! I have strong feelings ’bout their privileges!

That’ll be all.

Poptropica’s Not-So-Special-Anymore-Already-Seen-Him Special Guest And The Top Ten…First Ten

Really, Creators?  As if we couldn’t guess.

Guess who?

This is a tough one!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Sorta sad isn’t it.  When the Creators give someone so little to work with that they can’t think of anything to say.

Well, I’m gonna take a guess at this “history making announcement” thing.  Now I know you’ll think it’s crazy, but I think that maybe, just maybe, Greg Heffley’s coming back to Poptropica.  Yeah, told you that you’d think I was crazy.

Anyway, for a completely random change of subject, the top ten finishers of Poptropolis Games have been announced!  …Wait, let me fix that sentence.

Anyway, for a completely random change of subject, the top first ten finishers of Poptropolis Games have been announced!

Sorry, that’s what happens when you watch too much American Idol.

*sigh* If only Lone Comet’s first name was Icy instead of Lone.  Then it would be me up there…

My Opinion on Some of the Pictures: Part Two

Here are some more reactions:

Ah, just like me and my cat. 😐

I have an unusual fascination with the angry eyes for some reason. Maybe cause I don’t see them on my character often?

Ah, diving. That’s one of my best sports in the Poptropolis Games.

What’s with my mouth??

Did you know at one point, Binary Bard had lips in this picture. Due to my character’s laughter, I thought it was intentional. Guess not.

This is the only pic I liked from the Vampire’s Curse collection (besides the one with me standing aside from the picture of Bram and Annabelle). The other two look a little odd.

The Black Widow is one of my favorite villains. She’s just darn cool. Also impressive how she’s able to live a double life as a cop, as well.

If you look at this upside down, you’ll notice that there are the angry eyes again. A nice, simple pic.

That painful reminder that we’re the ones responsible for Balloon Boy’s journey through the skies.

That’s it. But I have a question….

Even after I finished Counterfiet Island, I only have those three pictures. Can anyone tell me when I was supposed to get the fourth one? Thanks. BT out!

For Those of You Who Don’t Know Already…

…Poptropolis Games is OUT!  It actually came out yesterday, but I was too busy beating it to let you know.  😉  You, know, I’ve got priorities and all that.

Poptropolis Games is now available!

Get ready to compete for the glory of your tribe. Visit Poptropica now to play Poptropolis Games!

The release date for non-members is June 14.  That’s not too far away…well, when you’re waiting for an island time seems to slow down, so I guess that is a little far away.

Psst!  Go Seraphim!

Pop Picture Contest #9

Edit: Congratulations to lazy moon for guessing correctly!  The picture is from Cryptids Island!  Check out the Pop Picture Contest page where lazy moon’s name is mentioned.  There’s also the names of other recent winners there.

Just wanted to remind you what the amazing logo that I made looked like.  😉

Anyway, it’s time for the ninth Pop Picture Contest.  If you don’t already know what the Pop Picture Contest is, go to the Pop Picture Contest page.

Here’s the picture:

Here’s your hint: It’s an exact replica of a statue from Mythology Island, only smaller…and a different color.

Good luck guessing!

So…Close…Going…Crazy…

Funny how much a little icon at the bottom of Poptropica’s login page that says “2 hours” can drive a person crazy.

The Creators apparently thought that it was nice to tease us in our misery by doing a post yesterday that was basically saying “Hah!  You can’t play it yet no matter how much you want to!”.

They’re probably sitting in their little office somewhere doing evil laughs and saying that making us go crazy is like taking candy from a baby.  It doesn’t help that it actually is that easy to make us, or at least me, loopy.

Big bullies…

One more day to decide…

What tribe will you represent in the Poptropolis Games?

Poptropolis Games rises tomorrow! Poptropica Members will have Early Access to the entire Island. Non-Members will be able to play a limited demo.

Don’t miss out — find out how to become a Member today!

The Winner! …So Far…

Edit: I seriously thought that I pressed the Publish button.  But, I guess I didn’t…I’m probably going crazy.  Anyway, here’s what happened.  I did this post probably the day that the Creators published their post on the PCB.  I thought I published it, but I guess something went wrong and it didn’t publish.  I didn’t realize until today that it wasn’t published.  So, obviously this is a few days late.  I’m so sorry!

There’s a poll on the Creators’ Blog about which tribe you are going to represent in the Poptropolis Games.  Captain Crawfish decided to do a pointless post telling us which one of the tribes is in the lead.  And considering how far in the lead it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if it won.

Going wild for Poptropolis Games

Well, well. After a few days of polling, it seems that the Wildfire is the runaway favorite tribe, and over 45% of Poptropicans plan to represent the red and orange in the Poptropolis Games. I have to say I’m a little surprised. This old sea salt’s heart is with the Flying Squid, now and forever.

Those of you itching to fly your tribal flag in the Poptropolis Games have only a few days to wait. It comes out on Thursday!

In the meantime, if you haven’t voted in our poll yet, there’s still time! Go ahead and tell us which tribe you plan to join by making your selection to the right of this post.

Well…I would say that there’s still time to vote for Seraphim and put it in the lead, but…considering that there’s only one day left to vote…I highly doubt that’s possible.

Oh, well.  Sometimes the most awesome things in life aren’t the most popular things.  Or, at least, to me they are.
