Big Bang for the Fourth

The Fourth of July is getting closer and closer.  And what better way to celebrate than to make a lot of noise and light up the sky with a lot of different colors?

Sis boom bah!

Independence Day is next week, and you know what that means: fireworks! If you’re itching to get started on the skyrockets a little early, check out the Fireworks in the Poptropica Store. You can plant these festive rockets anywhere on Poptropica, and watch them explode across the sky!

I hope that everyone in America (myself included) has an amazing Fourth of July!  I hope you all have lots of fun!

Being the Best Goes to Your Head

Or at least it does for Shark Boy.  All it takes is one piece of fan art and he starts thanking the “little people”.

Fan art!

Here’s some fan art we received showing the winners of a “best shark” contest in Poptropica.

I’d like to thank the little people.

See?  His head’s so big that it’s bigger than…than…than ST2’s stash of cookies.  …Whatever.

 

My Opinion on Some of the Pictures: Part 3

Hey guys, BT here with another picture opinion!

This picture makes me feel awkward (and some other girl characters might feel the same way).

Bingo was his name-o. Took me 3 tries to get that win. Very annoying.

You can’t see my black skirt and tights in the black background! 😐 At least provide an outline or something.

Yayy childhood memories!

Look, Linus, I’ve seen the cartoon. It’s going to turn out to be just Snoopy every time.

I’m not sure if that’s Charlie Brown’s actual face or the face I drew on the back of his head. But I drew a different carving: like from the cartoon “If we do the eyes like this…”

Good grief, Linus made it look so easy!

A glitch made this picture the only picture I got from replaying SOS island! Anybody got the same problem?

I don’t get this picture at all. Explanation please?

Yeahhhh I’m a bunny drone! (is not a bunny drone)

…. That’s it

Also, I wasn’t able to get the Red Baron picture from GP either, because of the glitch! I wan see the pics DX

BT out!

Tribal Supremacy

Even though Poptropolis Games has been out for awhile, the Creators are still talking about it.  Wish that they would start talking more about Wimpy Boardwalk.  Or how they’re planning to make a Lord of the Rings island.

…Yeah, they’re not really going to do that.  *sigh*  They should though.  It would be AMAZING!  Or they could do a Despicable Me island, or a Brave island, or a Harry Potter island.  OR!  An Inheritance Cycle island!  That would be amazing, too!  They should just let me be in charge of what the islands are about.  😉

Anyway, apparently the Creators are stalking us and seeing what place we get in when we play Poptropolis Games.  And all this time I thought that only I knew about the stupid mistakes that I made…

Like I was saying, the Creators have apparently kept track of what tribe you’re in and how many times that you get in first place, because they’ve decided to tell us which tribe has the best overall scores.

Which tribe reigns supreme?

Now that Poptropolis Games has been available for a few weeks, millions of Poptropicans have chosen their tribes and competed for glory. But do you want to know which tribe’s representatives have the best overall scores?

Go on, take a guess. We’ll wait for you.

Okay. The top-performing tribe in Poptropica is….

The Nanobots! Congratulations to everyone who’s flying the flag of the red robots!

If you’re not a Nanobot, don’t worry. You can always help your tribe reach the mountaintop by playing, and winning, Poptropolis Games! Visit Poptropica now to play!

Daily Pop Sneak Peeks #14

It’s been over a month since I’ve done a post about sneak peeks from Daily Pop.  Any particular reason for that?  Yep, there’s one amazing reason for me not posting about the sneak peeks for such a long time.  I forgot about it.  😉

Anyway, here are the sneak peeks!

Transmission- But what does it mean?

 

Precious Memories- And memories may be all that are left.

 

Decode- This isn’t just a random pattern.

 

Arcade Action- Are you a bad enough dude to file an amicus brief?

 

Mission Control- We’ve got a problem in every sense of the word.

 

Rings Around the World- See if you can toss off a victory.

 

Splish Splash- Gunning for a win on a hot summer’s day.

 

Sands of Time- Who knows what treasures might be hiding under the scorching sands?

 

Batter Up!- Dazzle him with the off-speed stuff.

 

Play and Win- You can take your prize and stuff it.

 

Under the Boardwalk- Also on and around the boardwalk.

 

Slide Rule- Everybody loves the twisty slide.

 

Board Meeting- Planking, the hot new trend this summer.

 

Blinded By the Light- Tag, you’re it.

 

Full Blast- Better strap in for the laser show.

 

What Lies Beneath- Some soda cans, it looks like.

 

Doctor Claw- Nothing a little elbow grease couldn’t fix.

 

Spilled Milk- Don’t cry over it.

 

Loose Booth- None of this stuff looks in very good shape.

 

The Pits- This fun house is raw power.

 

Photo Op- There’s no better way to remember your trip to the beach.

 

Metal Man- There’s gold in them there dunes.

 

Crate Box- There’s gold in them there chests.

 

Trash Day- There’s gold in them there garbage cans.

 

Crabby- Anybody would be a little grumpy with 4,000 volts through it.

 

Eye See You- Only a thunder volt could stop this guy.

 

Pain in the Bot- Only a nanobot could get in the groove in the here.

 

The Buzz- Let’s have no honey business.

 

Dreams Take Wing- Send me an angel.

 

Pathfound- The end of a long and winding road.

 

Well, that’s all of the sneak peeks for now.  Hopefully we’ll get more sneak peeks soon, and we’ll find out what some of these sneak peeks are for.  😀

~IC

P.S. Ever notice how when you say my Poptropican’s initials (IC), it sounds like my Poptropican’s first name (Icy)?  Just sayin’.

 

 

Thunder Volt…..Thunder Volt……Sound SO Familiar……

Okay, so THUNDER VOLT! ! It sounds so familiar!

While I’m thinking about Thunder Volt, here’s the creators post:

Feel the power!

Do you think you can make it onto the high scores list of Thunder Volt?

Sub-question: What is Thunder Volt?

SHARK BOY

*thinks*

THERE! ! I think I heard from one of the Diary of A Wimpy Kid Book. Was it Dog Days? Oh well, I’ll try to find the Dog Days book and check if there’s the game called Thunder Volt.

The Heat’s Getting Hotter

As you probably know, one of the Members-only bonus items for Wimpy Wonderland is the Heat Wave power.

When you use the Heat Wave Power, it makes you and the other Poptropicans around you get all sweaty.  It also makes your screen flash red.  I know, useful power.  Not.

Anyway, you can use the “Wimpy” part of Wimpy Boardwalk to describe the Creators.  They can’t stand a little heat without whining like a bunch of babies.

Heat wave!

Whew! I don’t know how it is where you are, but it’s incredibly hot outside of Poptropica HQ!

It might be our fault. Just yesterday we released the new Member-exclusive items for Wimpy Boardwalk in the Poptropica store, which included the sizzling Heat Wave power. Today, bam! Sweltering weather outside.

We hope you’re staying cool on the first full day of summer, unless you live in the southern hemisphere, in which case we hope you’re staying warm on the first full day of winter. Either way, we’ll have some hot news about Wimpy Boardwalk for you very soon!

See?  Such big whiners.

(Psst!  Look at the picture!  The Poptropican in it is Friendly Bug!  In another one of CC’s posts!  Curious, very curious!)

Hmm. A Gameplay Trailer and a Thought.

Watch the new trailer for Wimpy Boardwalk!

The new trailer for Wimpy Boardwalk is here!

But that’s not all! Members can also get their exclusive Wimpy Boardwalk items in the Poptropica Store.

Grab the Beachgoer costume, Beach Umbrella item, and Heat Wave power right now. And get ready for a hot summer on Poptropica!

Yup. That’s the Wimpy Wonderland trailer and Members only stuff. The costume’s-well-a costume. The heat wave power makes people surrounding you, and you, go into a sweat and cry out, while the screen glows an ominous red-orange. You can turn it off. The beach umbrella, when placing the spacebar, lays down a beach umbrella wherever you’re standing.
Off-topic time. Due to a couple of Ozzy Osbourne songs, I’ve been thinking about this guy:
I don’t know why I’m thinking about E.Vile. This guy means buisness- I mean in my opinion- he makes Dr. Hare look like a playground bully. E. Vile just wouldn’t give up like those other villains. (Yes, I’m aware that Dr. Hare had his secret lab, but we never actually SAW him.) He actually has an army, and you actually fight that army with a sword. I have a feeling he’ll make a second appearance one day. I don’t know when, but in the meantime, I’m still curious. This Poptropica villain is certainly a mystery.
There is one thing that compares him to other villains though- he has the whole common “I’m going to take over Poptropica/the universe and no one is going to stop me!” bit. Now… lets see how many villains has that goal… *counts* There’s Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, Zeus, Holmes, Dr. CumuloNimbus (from the blimp quest), and E. Vile. That’s six. I’m not sure if I’m counting Director D., since he wants to zap the hair off of everyone… nah, not gonna count him. Now that I think about it, that’s not that many. But it’s still many.
BT out from this semi-useless post.

Lookin’ Cheesy

I just noticed that in Poptropolis Games, we get the cutest picture ever for doing the waterfall jump diving thingy. Sure, the picture is a little cheesy, but I just look so dang cute in it! And so do Brave Tomato and Icy Comet. Yes, I know it’s weird-stalkerish to go to each of their profiles and take a picture, but what? I’m not a stalker! *blushes awkwardly*

Brave Tomato:

Doesn’t her ponytail randomly flying out behind her, in her Black Flags uniform look epic?

Super Thunder (me):

Yes, I know, I still had my jacket and belt. I look fine though, I think my hair goes with my Pathfinders outfit. It’s one of those colors that doesn’t clash; it sort of goes together, even though they’re sort of opposite. Like pink goes good with green?

Icy Comet (who happens to be the same Icy Comet as the one in the header):

See, I’m not the only one who randomly mixed street clothes with tribe clothes! I know Icy Comet is a Seraphim because of her shirt, and because she practically mentioned it in every post. But notice that me and Brave Tomato are keeping our hair and clothes simple; to give us room to move in the Games. And here Icy Comet is looking completely fancy and pretty! I wish I knew how to dress pretty, and not get messy while playing in the mud. D:

So, to make this post not completely useless, there is news about the newest island, Wimpy Boardwalk. Beware, guys! The Cheese has returned!

Get a grip

Some of the boardwalk games on Wimpy Boardwalk have spectacular prizes that you’ll be thrilled to win — but maybe not this claw game. What is that?
