Shrink Ray, Arabian Info, Tweets, and more

Hello everyone! This is a huge post about a bunch of updates, so enjoy!

First of all, Shrink Ray Island has been updated to a SUI (Sound Updated Island), and re-released to members! (Non-members can play a demo)

On the Arabian Nights Tour page, info about the second episode is now out! The episode is called Lair of Thieves. Here is the synopsis: ” In the den of the forty thieves, danger lurks around every corner. To outwit the most dangerous thieves in the desert, you’ll need a little help evening the odds – and you’ll find it in the form of an incredible magic power! ”

Sounds cool! 😀

In other news, the Poptropica App is now available on Android devices!

Sadly, the Poptropica Comics for this year have come to an end, but don’t worry, you can read all of this year’s comics in the Daily Pop on Poptropica. The Poptropica Creators also said that Oliver and Jorge will be back for more adventures in 2015. 🙂

Speaking of the Daily Pop, there are plenty of sneak peeks that hint to upcoming episodes of Arabian Nights, Poptropicon, and even the not-yet-announced Galactic Hot Dogs Island.

Here are some sneak peeks that I think are connected to these upcoming stories…

PopStorm, Art, Shrink Ray SUI, Haunted Land, & More

A lot of Poptropica news everyone, so get ready.

First off, some concept art or the Cryptids Island book.

Pretty cool! A little late for Halloween though. 😛

There have also been some more cute doodles from the Creators. These random doodles are now called PopStorms, as in a storm of creativity!

Wow, a lot of hair, huh? XD

Anyway, has anyone noticed that none of the old islands have been updated recently? Well that is no longer true because Shrink Ray Island is now an SUI (Sound Updated Island).

Looks really cool to me! Along with these new members only items, a poster, and a wallpaper, there is a new trailer that you can watch for the island.

Sadly, we do not have a guide for Shrink Ray yet. If you would like to submit a guide for us to use, send it to our email! Please just make sure it is made by you (no stealing), make sure it has pictures, and realize that it would be put up on the blog. 😉

In other news, the Poptropica Land Public Preview is now over and many people seem sad about it.

 And on that note, here are the best of the Haunted Lands!

Vote for your favorite on the Creator’s Blog! The best of the best for the Obstacle Courses turned out to be Silver Lightning, so congrats! 😀

Well, nice job everyone! And we hope you had an awesome Halloween.

P.S. We now know that Arabian Nights Episode 2, which is called The 40 Thieves, will be coming out November 25 for members and December 11 for everyone. Oddly, Nov. 25 is a Tuesday, instead of the usual Thursday.

SUI Release Dates

Hi Gs,

This post is dedicated to release dates of Poptropica… you may find it boring. 😉

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt like Poptropica had two teams of people making islands at one point.  In my opinion, back in the olden days (like a couple years ago) when Poptropica was making islands like they were out of style, there was a sort of pattern in the island releases.

It started with Shrink Ray island.  Even though I like it, it still isn’t a great island.  Then Mystery Train (good), Game Show (bad), Ghost Story (good), S.O.S. (bad), Vampire’s Curse (good), Twisted Thicket (bad)… of course, this is purely my opinion.

I’ll stop judging after that, because the pattern is inconsistent afterwards.  What do you think about my theory?

Here’s a nice piece of information: most of the old islands have already been remodeled.  How do I know?  Check out this xml file.  It is a list of all the islands that have been updated: http://static.poptropica.com/game/data/game/game.xml

That’s a lot of islands.  And they’re not all on there, so it isn’t just a list of islands to be updated.  Do you remember my failed prediction that Spy Island would be the next updated?  I made the prediction because the island, as far as I could tell, had already been uploaded.  Basically, what I’m saying is, we might be able to track the Creator’s schedule of releasing these SUIs.

Time Tangled was announced to be the next updated November 20, and was released December 10.  That’s a 30 day period in between there.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Thirty days from the time Mythology Island was announced to be updated would be February 7.  I might be wrong, but expect it to be that day.  And Creators, if you choose to change the date just to prove me wrong, I respect that. 😛

Also, it seems like Poptropica may have a language setting in the future!  Check out the .swf file for the SUI settings menu: http://static.poptropica.com/game/assets/ui/settings/settingsPanel.swf

There are four different language settings to choose from!  From what I can tell, it isn’t a released feature yet, but this sure is cool! 😀
