Hey guys, Spotted Dragon here! Lots of updates to cover today. But first… lemme take a selfie.
The Creators just added a cool new feature to the game, specifically on Home Island. What is this great new feature you ask? A photo booth! Upon visiting the island, you can find the photo booth next to the Shop. Thanks to Ultimate iPad Expert for the all the pictures!
Once inside, you will be greeted by a panel of buttons on the left of your screen. They are all labeled in the picture below.
The best part about the photo booth is that you can change the entire scene all on your own, including the characters, props, backgrounds, and more! You can either start from scratch, or edit a pre-made template.
And don’t worry… the photo booth is available for everyone! So what are you waiting for? Go to Poptropica now to try it out for yourself.
Yeah, this is me showing off my mixtape (which is on fire btw). I don’t know about you guys, but I really liked this update. However it’s still new, so I hope more tools get added. Like adding your friends to the picture, maybe an undo button, a way to add unique text, etc.
In other news, the Poptropica app got updated once again! It has every island up to Arabian Nights episode 3 and Hub Island now looks more like the online version. There are also more costume packs available in the Shop! Greek Gods, Heroes of the Ages, and Pets. Note that there are in app purchases and each pack costs 99 cents.
There have been more videos uploaded to the Poptropica YouTube channel as well, along with an announcement of a new series called Poptropica TV (according to a Creator’s post) that will be featured on the app. Anyway, the first new video is Shark Toon:
This seems to be a weekly thing, judging by the “tuna in next week” message at the end, but it could just be a fun short the Creators put together. Anyway, the other video is called Drawn to Life and features Gamer Guy:
While the first video was kinda funny, I found this one to be kind of long. Sadly, we don’t have a ton of other info on the videos. 😛
So what do you think about the photo booth? What about the app updates and videos? Leave your comments below! 😀
