Creators’ Favorite Islands #’s 4 and 5

So, if you don’t know about how the Creators are doing a series of posts about what their favorite islands are by now…well, let’s just say you need to get with the program.

So far we have Captain Crawfish with Red Dragon Island, Director D. with Cryptids Island and Legendary Swords, and Dr. Hare with Skullduggery Island.  I’m just waiting for someone to say Ghost Story Island…and, unfortunately, that beautiful day won’t be today.

First off, Comic Kid’s pick.  Or should I say picks.

Creators’ favorite Islands: Comic Kid’s picks

We’re sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Comic Kid.

I really loved the spooky yet fun feel to this island. I love Eastern Europe so designing the village and parts of the castle was quite a treat for me and I had fun all the while. Plus, who doesn’t want to be a bat and fly around? Talk about awesome!

Another genre I appreciate a lot is that of the cowboy and the Wild West. The building designs for this island were really fun to create and see developed. I really liked the sunset setting for Dusty Gulch, the island’s Main Street. In fact, I love all the towns for this island!

I don’t know…I liked Wild West Island okay but it wasn’t my favorite.  And Vampire’s Curse just seemed a little short to me.   But that might be just me.

Next up, Shark Boy’s breaking the record of how many things are your favorites with three things.  Guess he had a hard time choosing.

Creators’ favorite Islands: Shark Boy’s picks

We’re sharing the Poptropica creators’ picks for their favorite Islands. Today: Shark Boy.

I love mythology and really enjoyed seeing many mythological characters come to life with a fun Poptropica twist.

This was the first Island I helped write the story for, and where Shark Boy was born.

Although not a full island, this mini-quest is a personal favorite. I was able to write the story for this one, and even though it was a short quest, we were able to pack in a bunch of fun and interesting interactive elements.

So, Mythology Island.  I liked it.  But I wouldn’t include it in my list of favorites.  Shark Tooth Island’s okay.  I can see why Shark Boy would like it, though.  I mean, ya have to love the island that your little avatar/character thing is from.  And the Haunted House quest thing.  I don’t know, I haven’t played that in a long time.  So I don’t know what I think about that one.

Well, now that I’ve bored you to death with my boring opinions on everything, I think I’ll just leave you to be…bored?…

The App of the Curse

Okay, horrible title.  Whatever. 😉

The Creators, for some reason that’s beyond me, decided that it was necessary to make a guide that you can download when there are perfectly good places (and I’m not ashamed to say that this is one of them) that you can get good guides much easier and without having to download a bunch of stuff, and yeah.  You can probably tell that I don’t like it.

Vampire’s Curse walkthrough app now available for free!

Good news! Now, when you download the Poptropica Tips and Tricks app for your iOS or Android device, you can get the new Vampire’s Curse Island walkthrough absolutely FREE!

Whether or not you’ve already downloaded the app, you can nab the updated version from the iTunes App Store or the Android Market.

Then, visit the “Island Guides” menu and start your free download of the Vampire’s Curse Island walkthrough!

Just one question: why would you need a guide to Vampire’s Curse Island on your mobile device?  It’s impossible to play Poptropica on your mobile device.

Vampire’s Curse Island Guide

Icy Comet’s Blog now has a guide to Vampire’s Curse Island!  The guide was done by me, Icy Comet.  You can see the guide by clicking HERE.

You can also see a lot of other great guides by either going to the Guides page or the Video Guides page.

I hope the guide helps!

It’s Finally Here… The Curse!

Nonmembers, rejoice! Spring is here, and with it, comes the release of Vampire’s Curse!You can sink your teeth into Spring, by saving Katya, and turning into a tomato headed fanged creature. It’s okay though, it’ll pass.

Don’t forget: Vampire’s Curse Island is open to all tomorrow!

The wait for non-Members is almost over. Vampire’s Curse Island will be available to everybody tomorrow. We’ll announce it the moment it happens right here in the Poptropica creators’ blog, so be sure to check in!

Wait, was that post completely nessecarry? Well, no probably not, but still, I felt the need to post it to spam up this blog.
Do you guys like hot chocolate? I just got informed that Spring is coming, so no chocolate for me. D:

Ah, Yes, Another Random Post Courtesy of the Creators

The Creators have two talents.  One, making an…okay (all right, better than okay) game like Poptropica.  Two, making really random posts.  When it comes to making posts that are random, already tell us about something we know about, and are probably just put up there to make it seem like the Creators are more active than they really are, nobody beats the Creators.  Except maybe me, of course.

Anyway, today’s, well actually yesterday’s, random and useless post is a post reminding us that Vampire’s Curse Island comes out for non-members Thursday…as if we could forget, anyway…

Only a few days left until Vampire’s Curse Island is open to all!

The headline sort of says it all, doesn’t it? Vampire’s Curse Island will be available to everyone this Thursday! At last, non-Members will be able to explore the shadowy corners of Count Bram’s castle, and seek to end the curse of vampirism.

But don’t forget: the Members-only Vampire Count costume is only available until this Thursday!

Always have to remind you that there’s such a thing as Membership, don’t they.

One, more thing before I leave.  I would just like to say that the Creators still haven’t fixed that glitch thingy that Brave Tomato pointed out to me.  The glitch thingy is, when you go to the Island Tour place and you scroll down that list of islands that they have there, the symbol for Time Tangled Island is the same as the symbol for Twisted Thicket Island.

Twisted Thicket name & symbol

Time Tangled name & symbol

Weird, right?

Well, on that random note, I think I’ll leave you now.

Items to Make You “Stink-Tacular” in Every Way

Members, I don’t envy you that much right now.  The items from the Members-only gear pack aren’t the most…attractive…of items.  Though to use something that Black Widow wrote in her post, the items will help you create a “stink-tacular” look.

New in the Poptropica Store!

Vampire’s Curse Island is coming soon, and the fun has already started for Poptropica Members! The Vampire’s Curse Island gear pack is available now in the Poptropica Store!

Pick up the stink-tacular Garlic Breath power, chew on a stick of Vampire Bat Gum, or dress up as the most stylish Vampire Count or Countess around.

Picking up your Member gear pack is easy: just visit Poptropica and click on the green coin icon to access the Store. The items are right there.

If you’re not a Member, find out how to get Membership. And fangs for playing!

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!

Cactus Von Thorny

Sorry, it’s actually Cactus Von Garlic.  Though Cactus Von Thorny would have made more sense cause cactuses (yes, I know that’s not a word) are thorny…

Anyway, Cactus Von Thorny Garlic is a character that you will probably see in Vampire’s Curse Island.

Who is Cactus Von Garlic?

And why does he have that metal band around his neck?

avatar image

Rumor has it that Garlic Von Thorny Cactus is a vampire hunter.  That rumor is probably true, because Garlic Cactus Von Thorny has a garlic on his hat (which vampires are said to hate), a bow and arrow, and the thing around his neck might  be silver (which vampires also hate…or maybe that’s werewolves…).  Obviously, that rumor was started by someone who is much smarter than me and actually takes time to think about these things, because I would never have thought of that.

More news about Vampire’s Curse Island and Garlic Thorny Von Cactus hopefully coming soon!

Kidnapping and a Curse

Vampire’s Curse Island now has an info-page!  And, on the page, there is a section where it tells the island’s plot.

Here’s the plot:

In case you can’t read it, this is what it says: For centuries, a truce has existed between the people of a remote mountain village, and the vampire who lives in the castle high above.  Now, that truce is shattered, and Count Bram has captured a young villager.  Can you rescue her from his evil clutches — and avoid being struck by the vampire’s curse?

I wonder what the vampire’s curse actually is.  It sounds sort of scary.

There’s also another Bonus Quest for Members.  Here’s what the page says about the Bonus Quest:

In case you can’t read it, this is what it says: Poptropica Members can play a bonus quest after completing Vampire’s Curse Island.  The vampire is gone, but his curse lives on.  Prepare to discover even more hidden secrets of Bram’s castle — if a dangerous vampire hunter doesn’t get there first!

There is also a Vampire’s Curse Island gear pack for Members.

The items that Members get from the gear pack are Garlic Breath, Bat Gum, and Vampire Count and Countess Costumes.  Note to Members: like it says in the picture, the costumes are only available during Early Access.

Here are some pictures of Vampire’s Curse Island that are on the page:

There are also a two little extras that you can get on the info-page.  They are a desktop wallpaper and a printable poster.

Hopefully there will be more news about Vampire’s Curse Island soon!

Vampire’s Curse Island

The next island sounds like it is going to be full of fangs, blood, and danger! 😈  (Well, hopefully not blood.)  The Creators have announced that the next island is Vampire’s Curse Island!

Announcing the next Poptropica Island!

No reason to keep you in suspense any longer than we have to. The next Poptropica Island will be…

Vampire’s Curse Island! 

Of course, we’ll have all the latest news about Vampire’s Curse Island right here, so keep checking back for more about the story, release date, and more.

In the meantime, you can still visit Poptropica to play our latest, S.O.S. Island, or any of the 23 other Islands that are already available to play!

First ghosts, then a shipwreck, and now vampires!  I think the Creators need to cut back on the horror movies…the newest Poptropica islands seem to be getting scarier and scarier!
