I did not do very well in the ranking for Poptropolis, I got somewhere in the 4,000 range, but that was because my membership expired. I did much better on Virus Hunter, when I got 75th! What rankings did you get? For non-members, are you excited to play?

James Guy – Pop News

Lots of updates people! We’ll start with the most recent episode of Adventure Time, James. To watch the episode now, click here.

I thought it was a pretty cool episode. I had NO IDEA that PB was the saboteur. And James was kinda nuts. Oh! What did you think about PB cloning James? I think it’s a bit wrong, ya know? Also, what will happen with the rest of the toxic creatures? Will it end up being one of those mysteries that’s never solved? I hope not! I totally want PB to colonize the Desert of Wonder place too. That’s pretty cool. Maybe a second Candy Kingdom? Weird. Finally, did you notice PB was on the coin? I just thought that was interesting. 😛 So how did you like it?

Next, let’s talk about the next episode of Adventure Time, called Root Beer Guy. The synopsis is that “When Root Beer Guy claims Finn and Jake kidnapped Princess Bubblegum, no one believes him.” Thank the AT Wiki for that info. 😉 Now here is the long preview:

Weird, right? Finn and Jake would NEVER do something bad on purpose. Like, NEVER. Maybe clones? Imposters of some sort? I’m thinking a possible prank? What do you think? This episode will air December 2, 2013. BTW: The episode after this is called Frost & Ice. Could this be similar to the Frost & Fire related episodes? Time will tell…

Now, if you remember, a long while ago, we mentioned a Adventure Time Balloon. Well, it’s coming up soon! In the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

AT-thanksgivingballoon

We just couldn’t keep this one a secret! We’re serving up an extra large helping of Adventure Time this Thanksgiving. Finn and Jake are making their debut in the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® this year. Check out this picture from our test flight.

I know some Adventure Time fans have been wondering what will happen AT related for Thanksgiving. Sadly, there wasn’t a special episode, however I think this is better! When/If you see this balloon, tell us what it was like and how awesome it was! 😀

On to Poptropica News. We have 3 new Creator Posts, listed from least recent to most recent.

Okay! Well, we’ve already told you about the Mocktropica extras. Sadly, I’m not a member and I don’t remember my scores from the last Poptropolis Games, so I can’t tell you much about the javelin scores. Can you beat the Captain’s score? Finally, the annual Poptropica Holiday Wish List. Of course, it’s been updated to show all the 2013 merchandise. So what Poptropica stuff do you want for the holidays? What AT stuff do you want? Share in the comments! 😀

Oh! And Happy Thanksgiving! :mrgreen:

P.S. I can’t post too much over Thanksgiving and I’m sure not a lot of our authors can either. Sorry for the inconvenience. (But authors, please try to start posting updates more often! Or anything Pop/AT related that you want shared for that matter. 😉 )

PopGames 2013 Advice

How to get the best scores in the new Poptropolis Games events

Many of you have had a chance to check out the new events in Poptropolis Games. We hope you like them as much as we do! Because the instructions screen will only tell you so much, here are a few tips to win gold in the new events.

In the downhill race, you’ll probably notice two things immediately: going through a gate removes a second from your time, while hitting an obstacle adds a second. The best way to make sure that you hit gates and avoid obstacles is actually to go off jumps!

Each jump will take you over a minefield of obstacles that are hard to miss. But if you hit the jump, you’ll sail clear — and you’ll land right in front of a gate.

In volleyball, there’s no real trick, but the important thing to remember is that the angle the ball bounces off of you is based entirely on where it hits you. If it hits the front of you, it’ll bounce forward. If it lands on top of your head, it will bounce straight into the air. And if it hits the back of you, it’ll bounce backward.

The key is to try to position yourself in such a way that you’ll bounce the ball at a angle that is hard for the octopus to defend.

Hope that helps! If you’ve already won the Games, see where you rank on our World Champions live map. If you haven’t played, find out how to become a Member so you can play Poptropolis Games this weekend!

I haven’t played the island yet, so I don’t know if the advice is worth while or not, but it seems helpful! Have you beat Poptropolis? Were the new events difficult?
