Daily Pop Sneak Peeks #6

Here are the latest sneak peeks from Daily Pop.  Good luck trying to figure out what kind of new island they might be from!

Home Sweet Home- Just a quiet house in the suburbs. Or is it? Yes, it is.

Track Changes- You might want to watch out for anyone from the wrong side of the tracks. But which side is that?

Old School- This is Poptropica -- You know there's more here than meets the eye.

Dryer Eyes- Ever more fantastical adventures await. Behold, the laundromat!

Do you have any idea what kinds of islands these might be previews for?  If you do, let me know…I haven’t been able to come up with any ideas…

Sketchy Sneak Peeks

There are lots more sneak peeks from Daily Pop.  Some of these sneak peeks look a bit…sketchy.

Mind the Gap- Be careful not to get off- track here.

Desert Inn- Nothing like a secluded hideaway for the descerning bandit.

Bridege Work- This looks like a bridge over untroubled water.

Fast Mart- Fast doesn't necessarily equal cheap. Or tasty.

Lord of the Ring- Sketching out a concept for a new kind of competition. Or is it an old one?

Looking Up- When it's done, this scene will tower above the rest.

Get in Line- This time, maybe we won't bother filling in the blanks.

Western Sneak Peeks

You have to admit, these sneak peeks from Daily Pop really do have a western theme to them.

Saloonatics- This Poptropican is a stand-in that you'll never see on any island.

Cool Ranch- Giving you a new perspective on the next Poptropica island.

Double Dos- This cactus looks lonely. Maybe it should stop being so prickly.

Daily Pop Has Come to Poptropica…Along With Other Updates

That’s right, Daily Pop has now come to Poptropica!

Earlier today, Poptropica was down for maintenance.  When it came back up, it brought along some big changes.

The first change is when you log into Poptropica.  The logging in part is normal, but when you are done logging in, it brings you to a page that looks like this (this page is your home page):

You can click on the picture to see a bigger one.

I couldn’t fit the top part in the picture, just so you know.

On the top part, to the left hand side, is Poptropica’s logo.  If you click on the logo, you will be brought to the game part of Poptropica.  On the top part, to the right hand side, there are five buttons.  This is what the buttons look like:

The first button, the one that looks like a blimp, will bring you to the game part of Poptropica when you click on it.  The second button, the one that says Pop, will bring you to Daily Pop, which I will tell you more about later.  The third button, the one that looks like a star, will bring you to your Stats/Store page.  There, you can check your stats and buy things from the store, just like you normally could.  The fourth button, the one that has two Poptropicans’ faces, will bring you to your friends page, where you can use Multiverse.  The last button, the one that looks like a house, will bring you back to the home page.

Now, onto Daily Pop…the thing we have been waiting for days to see it.

When you go to Daily Pop, you will automatically be taken to the Comics page.  There are three pages that you can go to in Daily Pop.  The first page is the Comics page.  The second page is the Games page.  The third page is the Sneak Peaks page.

First, more about the comics page.

When you get to the comics page, you can click on a comics logo to read the comic.  There are nine comics you can read.  Here are the comics you can read:

On the first page:

On the second page:

 

Now, the Games page.

When you go to the Games page, you can click on the games’ logos to play the games.  There are eight games you can play.  The games are:

 

Now for the last page, the Sneak Peeks page:

When you go to the Sneak Peeks page, you can look at four sneak peeks of different things by the Creators.  You can also rate them.  Here are the current four sneak peeks:

You can click on any of the pictures to see a bigger one.

That is it for Daily Pop.

Just in case you were wondering, the game part of Poptropica has not changed, except for the fact that there is a border around it now.

Before I end this post, here is what the Creators have to say about Daily Pop and the updates on Poptropica:

Daily Pop is here!

You might have noticed that Poptropica was down for a few hours this morning. That’s because the Creators were busy putting the finishing touches on the newest addition to the Poptropica experience!

Now, whenever you log into your saved Poptropica game, you’ll have even more to choose from. Jump right into your game, or check out the Daily Pop!

With Daily Pop, there’s something new to enjoy on Poptropica every day. Read comics, play games, and see sneak peeks of upcoming Islands that you can only find in the Daily Pop. Plus, there are a few added improvements that we think will make your Poptropica adventures even better.

Check it out!

Time to Get Sticky with Honey Nut Cheerios!

Okay, horrible title…I need to get more creative 😉

When you log onto Poptropica, you will get an item card that looks like this:

If you click on the button that says Play Game, you will be brought to another page where you can play a game called Buzz’s Honey Bust.

The goal of the game is to fling Yellow Jacket as far as you can.  To change the angle that Buzz is going to throw Yellow Jacket, use your arrow keys.  To fling Yellow Jacket, press your space bar.  After that, you basically sit and watch, seeing how far you can fling Yellow Jacket.

Unfortunately, there is no prize for completing the game.  😦

Also, an update on the Video Contest.  I may or may not end the contest Monday.  If I do that, make sure you send us your videos before Monday!

A POP-tropica Surprise

The Creators recently posted about something called Daily Pop.  The post has no more information than its name, the fact that it is coming soon, and a picture.

Here is the picture from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.

There is no other information on Daily Pop right now.  Hopefully we will be getting more information soon!

Update: I was looking at the Poptropica Help Blog and The Poptropican Data Blog, according to both blogs, there was part of an article on a website that said this:

“Poptropica is launching personalised pages, enticing players with daily quizzes and comic strips, and pitching the site as a new platform for comic syndicators, which he says are “petrified” by newspapers’ decline.”

Click HERE to see the article.

That must be what Daily Pop is going to be.  It looks like the guessing is over!
