Yet Another Thing That We Already Know…

There’s something wrong with the Creators.  They keep telling us stuff that we already know!

One giant leap for map-kind

For some time now, Poptropica has had a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless. The problem: too many Islands! Vampire’s Curse Island will be our 25th Island, if you can believe it. And our map was starting to look really cluttered.

First, we thought we would just have to erase some Islands. Flush ’em right down the drain. But as our fingers were hovering over the “delete” button, somebody had an idea: why not make a new map? We all agreed that was a much better solution.

Now, when you log onto Poptropica for the first time, or return to your blimp from Main Street of any Island, you’ll see this new and improved map screen!

It has a few advantages over the old one. The Island icons no longer move, so it’s easier to read their names. The newest Islands are at the very beginning, so you’ll won’t have far to look for the latest and greatest adventure. And we’ve split up the map into different pages, which makes it easier for you to sort through them.

Oh, and most important of all: the birds chase your blimp.

We hope you enjoy the new map, and that it helps makes your visit to Poptropica even more fun than before.

Happy Leap Day! There won’t be another one for 4 years.

We knew about this…let’s see…4 or 5 days ago!  Creators, you really need to work on your efficientness (that can be a word if I want it to be).

That’s why you come here, where you get the news right away without any waiting!  Well, most of the time anyway.

Edit: It just sank in…the Creators almost deleted some islands!  Those beautiful, wonderful, amazing, islands that we spent forever trying to beat and make guides for!  Thank goodness somebody had the idea of making a new map, and whoever that was just saved me from crying about all the hard work that I did for nothing.

5 Days, 22 Hours, 35 Minutes, 29 Seconds, and a New Map

The countdown for Vampire’s Curse Island has begun!

Members, prepare yourselves to camp out by your computers to try to be one of the first ten to finish the island!

Also, there’s a new map for when you travel from one island to another.

The new map looks like this:

You can see more of the map by going to the side and clicking when it says “More Islands”

Personally, I liked the old map better.  Gosh, Creators, you have to change something when it is already perfect!

Cryptids Island is on the Map!

If you take a look at your map in Poptropica, you will see that Cryptids Island has been added to it.  Here is the creators’ post for more information!

Cryptids Island in the wild

Well, well, well — look what’s sneaked its way onto the Poptropica map.

You can visit Cryptids Island now for a special sneak preview! You’ll be dropped on the shores of Loch Ness. Check out the viewfinder next to the castle to see the amazing sights. If you’re lucky, you might even spot Nessie!

Anyone who does see the Loch Ness Monster through the viewfinder will win a special prize (and Poptropica Members get even more time to look). You can try once per day, so if you don’t see her today, try again tomorrow!

This post has been brought to you by our good friends at the Mews Foundation.

Just in case you didn’t know, Loch Ness is a place in Scotland.  There is a creature called the Loch Ness Monster that is said to live in Loch Ness’s waters.  The Loch Ness Monster’s nickname is Nessie, which explains Captain Crawfish saying, “If you are lucky, you might even spot Nessie!”  I looked up the Loch Ness Monster on Wikipedia, and it says that it is a cryptid, which is a creature or plant who is rumored to exist, but it is very unlikely.

Good luck trying to find Nessie!
