Passing the Test!

No, not a literal test, of course. The Creators are receiving helpful data from us beta testers from Beta Carrotene about things they need to improve on. Keep on testing!

You’re acing this test

In just over a week since we launched 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island, we’ve already been able to make a lot of fixes and improvements thanks to your help. Some of the big ones include:

  • Fixing the entrance to the sewer that was giving lots of players fits
  • Improving the inventory so that it’s easier to put on the drone ears
  • Eliminating jittery performance in the smelter

We’re also continuing to work on other issues like improving play control, minimizing lag, and implementing the classic movement cursor.

Your feedback is absolutely invaluable to us. By beta testing these new features, you’re helping to make Poptropica better for everyone. And that’s important! If you’ve already played through the test and sent us your responses, we’d love for you to go through again and let us know how the changes worked for you.

If you’re a Member and haven’t played 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island yet, visit Poptropica now to get started. Not a Member? Find out how to get Membership.

 
Not much to say about this anymore, just keep on sending feedback so hopefully these features will be released quicker and better with all the help from us players! Have fun and a great rest of the day!

Disney Ads and Paper Hares Equals Fun!

The Creators have another dynamic duo of posts to share. First, the most recent one is about the reward for reaching 10,000 supporters for the LEGO CUUSOO Dr. Hare project. It’s a craft, not a Poptropica power though.

Craft your own Dr. Hare!

Minions, 

We still need 2,300+ more votes to reach 10,000 supporters for the Dr. Hare’s Lair Lego project. To help you visualize just how cool a Dr. Hare Lego set would be, we’ve created this Dr. Hare Paper Craft for you to print out and assemble. We’re sure all you evil geniuses in the making could whip this up in a matter of moments. 

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to support “Dr Hare’s Lair” today! If you’re under 13, ask your parents or an older sibling to cast a vote of support. How could one refuse, when presented with a super cool paper Dr. Hare?

Next, the Creators announced a pretty new ad (as in a week old) about Disney XD with multiple prizes and a grand prize at the end. They don’t really announce ads on Poptropica that much, so this is kind of new. Screenshots too!
 

Disney XD’s Non-Stop Summer on Poptropica!

Disney XD is kicking off Non-Stop Summer here on Poptropica! All summer long, we’ll be bringing you all sorts of awesome games, costumes, parties, prizes, and introducing crazy new characters! 

Take a ride on your bike and play some awesome new games. The more games you play, the more prizes you can win! 

It’s going to be non-stop fun on Disney XD’s Non-Stop Summer onPoptropica

Beta Testers Assemble, and a Trailer!

Yeah, sorry. Anyway, the Creators have another duo of posts. The most recent one is the trailer for the upcoming Virus Hunter Island. It does look interesting. The trailer is mostly movie-style, not gameplay. Anyway, enough talking…

Watch the trailer for Virus Hunter Island!

 

Virus Hunter Island is coming soon to Poptropica!

The next post is a newsworthy one, for members at least. I won’t spoil it for you!

24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is now available!

 

Let the testing begin! 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is now available to Poptropica Members. This is your chance to get a sneak preview of the next generation of Poptropica, while also helping us make important improvements.

To play 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island, grab the Gold Card from the Poptropica Store (pictured above). Or just click on the slide on your Welcome Back page. The beta test is for Poptropica Members only, so if you’re not a Member, find out how to become a Member today!

Remember, although there are a lot of new features to try out, like a soundtrack and a bigger screen, the beta is still missing some things you’re used to, like the costumizer and the ability to save your game. Fear not, those features will be returning!

Also, the cursor is not staying that way.

So head on over to Poptropica to play 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island and check out all the great new features we’ve got coming up!

I wonder how long it will take for the improvements to make it to the general public. Soon, I hope. A soundtrack is going to be AWESOME! 😀 

Happy Trails!

Hare Ears and 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene!

The Creators have an announcement to what’s in store for improvements to Poptropica/what members get to see in Beta Carrotene.

Before and after

One of the new features you’ll find in 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is a larger screen size. But just how much larger? Well, here’s the old game window:

And here’s the new one:

Now look what happens when we put the old screen on top of the new one (you may need to click to see the full effect):

Wow! That’s a lot of extra real estate. More to see, more to explore, more to enjoy.

And did we mention that all of this will be happening at a smoother frame rate? Yes, sir. There’s going to be a lot more of Poptropica to enjoy.

24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island is coming soon. We’ll let you know just as soon as it’s available.

Sounds cool. Except the Poptropican looks much smaller in the bigger screen.
Also, since supporters supported the Dr. Hare LEGO CUUSOO project more than 7,500 times, Dr. Hare released the new power that lets you give everyone in your vicinity Dr. Hare ears (and you as well, but it doesn’t affect your hairstyle when you walk out of the room except if you activate it on Main Street and go into a common room, it’ll stay on if you exit if you do that.). The code is: DRHARE7500.

Dr. Hare Ears Power is now available!

Minions,

Sometime this weekend we passed another crucial milestone on our LEGO CUUSOO project. We now have more than 7,500 supporters!

As promised, the Dr. Hare Ears Power is now available for free. To get this card, all you need to do is enter the code DRHARE7500.

(Not sure how to redeem a code? Find out here.)

7,500 votes is great, but it’s not our ultimate goal. We’re not done until we get 10,000 supporters. So enjoy the fruits of your labor thus far, but if you haven’t yet supported our project — or, if you’re under 13, gotten someone over 13 to cast a vote for you — now’s the time!

Support “Dr Hare’s Lair” today!

DR. HARE

Hopefully he’ll release a bigger prize when the goal of 10,000 supporters is achieved. So redeem, redeem, redeem! 😀

Members Get Extra Beta Carotene!

…Only if you like carrots and stuff. But anyway, the Poptropica creators have some news for members…about something called…”24 Carrot Beta Carrotene Island.” (Nice pun.)

What is 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island?

 

 We’ve been working very hard behind the scenes on some big improvements to Poptropica. After hinting at them in this blog, now we’re almost ready to unveil them! But first, we need to test them out — and we’ll be asking Poptropica  Members to help us do that.

 Soon, we’ll be releasing a special card to Poptropica Members that we’re calling “24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island.”  It’s our way of letting you help beta test the amazing new features we’ll soon be rolling out for everyone. Features like:

  • A full soundtrack (music and effects!)
  • A bigger screen
  • Better navigation

 Because it’s a beta, some things that you’re used to doing on Poptropica will be missing. For instance, you won’t be able to save your game in the beta test, or use the costumizer. Don’t worry: we’ll be adding everything back in by the time the testing period is over.

By playing the beta, you’ll help us to make sure we get everything to work right so that everyone can enjoy it. As thanks, all Members who try the beta will get an extra-special Beta Tester costume, pictured above, which you can keep forever. So keep an eye out right here — we’ll let you know the moment that 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island becomes available.

And if you’re not a Member yet, find out how to become a Member today so that you can be the first to experience the next generation of Poptropica!

Tribal Rooms!

Remember way back in Poptropica where they let you choose a tribe? Well, surprise!

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Introducing tribal common rooms!

 
So you joined a Tribe, and it’s awesome. You know in your heart of hearts that your Tribe rules, and the other Tribes drool. But what else can you really do with your Tribe?

Now, you can enter your super-secret, ultra-awesome tribal common room! 

Just go to your personality profile page and click on your tribal logo. You’ll see a new pop-up with a button that says “Join Room.”

That brings you to an all-new common room that’s bigger and better than the ones you usually find on Main Street, and which is only open to the members of your Tribe! You’ll be able to meet and befriend new tribal pals right away.

Not only that, but each of these new tribal rooms has a bunch of hidden interactive elements. Can you find them?

Visit Poptropica now to check out your new digs!

Annoucing the next Poptropica Island!

 
Just in time for, uh, Christmas, prepare for the spookiest Poptropica Island yet! Announcing… 

Zomberry Island!

One by one, the citizens of Eastman are mutating into something horrible. Now, the city is quarantined, the survivors are trapped, and ghouls prowl the streets. No one knows how the zombie outbreak began… but how it ends is up to you!

Zomberry Island is coming soon to Poptropica. We’ll  have a lot more information soon!

Wow…zombies. But we can’t get everything we like, right?  *Ahem, my Poptropican* hopes to defeat zombies and not become one! Though it would be cool…in an island really. 😆

 
 
 

Hotel Transylvania Ad

Oh, and there’s a new ad. It’s about the new movie coming out, Hotel Transylvania.

When you’re outside,

Image

A pic’s worth a thousand words. ‘Nuff said.

Inside, the little monster will run away and you’ll have to do the dirty work. I mean it.

Image

Walk to Drac and he’ll whiny, whine, whine to you. Then you do the work.

Image

So I don’t have to type it, here are the instructions.

Image

Here’s a guide: The “wrapped up” bag is Murray’s, the “stitches” bag is Frank’s, the “normal” bag is Jonathan’s, the transparent bag is Griffin’s, and the “scratched up” bag is Wayne and Wanda’s.

Murray= First Floor

Frank= First Floor

Jonathan= Second Floor

Wayne & Wanda= Second Floor

Griffin= Third Floor

It’s easy and you have a full 150 seconds. Then you get costumes. (These are the girls’)

Image

Image

The boys get Frank and Drac costumes. Credits to Shifty Hopper and Samwow!

You can go help again, but you get the same things.

Creators Are Late On the Post Again…

Yes, I know Icy Comet covered this. but here’s the latest creator post: (I’m just reporting everything they type, eh?)

Did you get your Super Villain Island gear?

 

New in the Poptropica store, Members can get their exclusive Super Villain Island gear! You can look extra evil with the Night Hare costume, summon one of four Evil Henchmen with the push of a button, and use the Sleeping Powder to send everyone onscreen to the Land of Nod!

These exclusive items are available only to Poptropica Members. If you’re not yet a Member, find out how to get Membership today.

And keep an eye out for Super Villain Island, coming soon to Poptropica!

Gee, I wish I was a member. Anyway…

I decided to post a snapshot I took on Wimpy Boardwalk months ago. Well, it looks like I won’t be getting member items or following the rules in this lame, boring fun house!

Wait, did it list everything that you’re supposed to do in a fun house? IDK. I’m too old to be in a fun house anyway, so I have no idea. 

Me, out!

 

We Know It’s the Birthday…

Judging by our posts and the festive things in Poptropica, you probably know it’s Poptropica’s 5th Birthday. But…the Creators have a post…

Happy birthday, Poptropica!

 

Wow! This month marks Poptropica’s FIFTH birthday. Time sure flies when you’re having fun. To celebrate another circuit around the sun, we’re giving away a free, color-changing birthday balloon to everyone in the Poptropica Store.

But that’s not all: for the rest of the month, you can also win an exclusive fifth-birthday prize. All you need to do is visit any common room and look for a special balloon floating in among the rest — look for a blue balloon with the number 5 on it.

If you pop it, you’ll win a birthday-cake costume that shoots fireworks!

Visit Poptropica now to start the celebration. We’ve got a few more birthday surprises up our sleeves before the month is out. Stay tuned!
