Candy + Zombies = ?

It’s very strange; the closer we get to Christmas, the closer we get to a creepy, weird, zombie-themed island.  Somehow the two just don’t fit…  Hopefully you’ll get a lot of presents to help you deal with this upcoming island.  But, before we get on with the zombie news, let’s start with something a bit sweeter.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is now out for non-members!  Are you ready to get your golden ticket and delve into a candy-lovers dream?  Prepare yourself for a crazy adventure!

If you get a little stuck along the way, don’t forget to check out our awesome Charlie and the Chocolate Factory guide, written by Samwow5.

Though it is good news, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn’t the main theme of this post.  More news about Zomberry Island is waiting to be told.  Let the creepiness begin!

As you probably know by now, the Creators have been releasing a series of comics telling about how Zomberry Island’s fruit-loving inhabitants got turned into zombies that would fit in nicely in a horror movie.  If you missed the first half of the series, just take a look at this post and this post to catch up.  And if you’ve already read those, take a look below to see the newest addition to Zomberry: Day Zero.

Oh, the suspense of it all!  This comic was released yesterday, so the 5th one should be released sometime later today.  Hopefully we’ll find out who on earth is in that helicopter and if Joe Puddy manages to escape from those zombies.

If you’re a member, you can have a little fun with some new items while you’re waiting for the next comic to be released.  If you guessed that the Zomberry Island gear is now out, then you are correct!

The items that you get are the Big Blue power, the ZMB Unit costume, and the Safety Flare item.

First up, the Big Blue power!

Big Blue power

When you put on the big blue power, prepare yourself for a shock.  Your Poptropican will turn into one of those oversized zombies.

Very attractive, isn’t it?

Now, onto the Safety Flare item.

Safety Flare item

When you use the Safety Flare item, a flare will go into your hand.  When you press the SPACEBAR, your Poptropican will put down one of these flares, making a reliable, red light.

And last, but most certainly not least, the ZMB Unit costume.

Use the ZMB Unit costume to turn your once-normal Poptropican into a tough Poptropican who’s ready for anything.

That about wraps it up for this zombie-packed post.  Non-members, go out and have some delicious fun in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and members, go prepare yourselves to face some monsters.  Check back for more news!  Also, I’m currently working on a post about sneak peeks in Daily Pop, so that should come out real soon!  😀

…And, of course, right as I finish this post as was prepared to get my Poptropican out of the ZMB Unit costume, Poptropica stops working on me and won’t let me log back in due to maintenance.  Hopefully this doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to play for awhile…

Out-of-This-World Walkthrough, Villainous Island for Everyone, 500,000,000 Poptropicans, and a Sweet Info Page

As you can tell by the title, we have a lot to talk about!

First off, you may be familiar with the app for Poptropica, it’s called the Poptropica: Official Tips and Tricks app.  It’s basically an app with guides on it.  (Although, why would you use that when you have sites like this with tons of guides on them just a click away?)

A new guide has been added to it, hence the “Out-of-This-World Walkthrough” part of this post’s title.  Any guesses as to what island this guide is for? 😉

Lunar Colony walkthrough now available!

If you’re still stuck on our latest free Island, Lunar Colony, you’re in luck: You can now download the Lunar Colony guide in our official walkthrough app for FREE! The Lunar Colony guide is available now for Apple iOS devices, and will be available soon for Android devices.

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

I’m a little worried about the part in Captain Crawfish’s post where he says “our latest free Island”.  It’s the “free” part that gets to me.  The Creators aren’t going to make us start paying for islands, are they?!?!

Second on our little list of things I’m going to tell you about, is the release of a certain little island.  Super Villain Island was released to everyone yesterday (October 18th).  Here’s the trailer just for the sake of taking up some more room in this post.

Now, I knew that Poptropica is a really big online game.  But it turns out that it’s a lot bigger than I thought…  Check this out!

500,000,000 Poptropicans and counting!

It’s been a year of milestones for Poptropica. 5 years, 30 Islands, and now this: 500,000,000 characters created.

If Poptropica were a country, it would be the third biggest in the world. Thank you to everyone who is a part of Poptropica!

Wow.  500,000,000 Poptropicans created!  That’s pretty big!

What better way to celebrate that amazing thing than with something a little sweet?  And I don’t think you’re going to find anything sweeter than this up-and-coming-island whose info page was recently released.

So, like I’ve mentioned about a thousand times before, I’ve never read the book or seen the movies, so I have no idea what the storyline of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actually is.  But, if it’s anything like the description on the info page, then it sounds pretty cool.

Here’s what the picture says: After years of silence, Willy Wonka’s magical chocolate factory is re-opening, and you’ve got a Golden Ticket.  But when a group of misbehaving kids threaten to destroy Wonka’s candy creations, he needs you to save the day.  Prepare to untangle a confectionary conundrum that’s full of sweet treats and sticky situations!

There are some also pictures on the info page.  You can recognize parts of the pictures from the Daily Pop Sneak Peeks.  Check them out!

There’s a downloadable wallpaper and poster available on the info page.  Here’s what the desktop wallpaper looks like:

And here’s what the printable poster looks like:

Both of those look pretty cool!

There’s are also links to buy the book and the movie on the info page.  As of right now, there isn’t a section about a Members-only bonus quest, so I don’t know if this is going to be the first island in a long time without one or if it’s just not up yet.  I’ll keep checking back and I’ll let you know, though.

If you want to see the info page for yourself, just click HERE to check it out!

That about wraps up this really long post of mine!  Hope you enjoyed it.
