Week of Wonder

survivalWe already know that Mission Atlantis Ep. 3 (Out of the Blue) is coming out this week, along with the updated Poptropica Land. Those things are great and all for members, but what about all the other Poptropicans? Worry no more!

Survival Ep. 4 (Cabin Fever) will be out for everyone on Thursday! 😀

Now in other news, many blogs have already mentioned this and finally we will. 😛 The Creators’ Blog slightly changed layout a while ago, so here is what is looks like now (click to enlarge).

Looks simple enough, huh? But wait… whats…? (click to enlarge)

ds game originalThat doesn’t look right… There is only one Poptropica DS game out and this is the cover. ➡

Does this mean we will see a new DS game soon? Hopefully we will find out soon! 😉

Survival Eps. 1 for All, Atlantis for Members! And…..

Today is a big day in the Poptropica world!

The first episode of Survival is now available for everyone, and the first episode of Mission Atlantis is available for members!

 

I have played Mission Atlantis already, but I won’t say anything about it until later. Perhaps a review will be coming your way?

Also, on a side note, I found something peculiar. When going to the Poptropica Store, there are 2 new items for members, that haven’t been announced yet on the Creator’s blog.

They have to do with Mythology Island, and I’m guessing maybe they weren’t supposed to be released until Mythology Island comes out new and improved?

 

I got both of them, and here is what the Cyclops costume looks like on me!

The costume comes with one red eye, fangs, a club, and a sheep tied to your back!

 

I also checked the Mythology page, and it is updated like the “new and improved” islands are! A desktop and wallpaper posters are now available! Here is the link to get them: http://www.poptropica.com/island-tour/mythology-island.html

Anyway,

Don’t forget to look at your rank after you have completed either episode!

Have a good weekend!

Coming Soon…

Well, you all have heard of the upcoming Mission Atlantis Island. It, like Survival, will be coming out in episodes. When can you play it though? It will be available for members on April 17! Because it’s coming out so soon, it looks like we will probably switch between Mission Atlantis and Survival (One episode Survival, than one episode Mission Atlantis, then Survival, etc.).

Now, I’m sure you’re probably really curious about Mission Atlantis. Thankfully, its info page is up now!mission atlantis

It’s a different world under the sea… but the ancient secret at the bottom of the ocean is beyond your wildest dreams.

Sounds cool, right? If you haven’t heard about “Atlantis” before, click here for a bit about it. Anyway, here’s a little something that everyone, not just members can enjoy. The MA Island wallpaper and poster!

You can click here to download the poster.

Okay, sorry about this, but I have to get back to the “members only” stuff. It looks like there is only one members only item (so far?) for MA. It is the diving suit, which is coming soon.

That’s it on MA Island, but let’s travel back to Survival. Actually, I think the correct term is travel forward. You know why? Survival Island: Crash Landing (Episode 1) will be available for everyone next weekend! Enjoy!!! 😀

However, we aren’t done yet. The Creators recently posted the picture below and simply said “WHEEEEEEE!!!” with a title of “I believe I can fly.”

flying sneak peek

 

Nothing much to this picture, huh? To the right looks like a satellite of some sort. From the looks of it though, it doesn’t seem related to Survival, or Mission Atlantis. And just to be clear, the Poptropican isn’t really flying (we did get to fly on Super Power though). It’s more like he is falling with style. So, what do you get out of the picture? 😉

Survival: Crash Landing Review

“Night has fallen and the temperature is dropping. Alone in the forests of the Yukon, you must find a way to build a fire-but time is running out.” -Poptropica Survival Tour http://www.poptropica.com/island-tour/survival.html

Poptropica: Survival just might be the masterpiece we have waited for.

On Thursday March 20, Poptropica released the first episode of Survival. What is unique about “Survival”, is that it is the first ever episodic island. That means, that small “islands or quests” will be released quicker than any other island. In my opinion, that is a great idea. Ever since we got the New and Improved Islands, we have had to wait even longer for a new island to be released. One of the cool things about Survival, is the fact that it has all of the features a New and Improved Island would, and we didn’t have to wait forever for it to come out!

In this review, I will go over several things about the new Survival Island, including story, music, background/landscape, and more.

Please feel free to comment on what you think!

*May contain slightly small spoilers*

When you click the Survival island, you see a short scene of your blimp being hit by lightening and dark weather, and you are soon trapped in the Yukon forest. Great.

You can hear the wind blowing, and the twigs snapping, and a quiet music in the air, as if that will calm you down. It doesn’t. You need to find supplies to build a fire, as your body temperature slowly decreases.

In the distance, you hear pecking on bark. A woodpecker. The Poptropica Creator’s didn’t forget a single detail when it came to the music. It actually helps you in the game, when you need to follow the bird in the trees. As you progress through the story, you notice that you haven’t turned off the music, which is very different. Usually, you turn off the music after awhile, because it gets very annoying and stuck in your head. But there you are, still finding dry kindling with the wind whistling in your ears. You don’t want to turn it off. The music adds another layer of the warmth you don’t have, and are trying to find.

The landscape/background of the forest is simple, but actually looks like a cartoon forest. Even the grass dances in the wind. On any other island, there are distinct differences in each “area” or “street of some sort”, but the forest almost looks alike, everywhere you go. That’s another awesome thing. It makes you almost feel lost, like you are really in the Yukon freezing your toes off. Almost.

The storyline. Not much too it, but I have to admit, that is was kind of challenging. Much more than Monster Carnival and Mocktropica. Those two islands didn’t take me very long to complete (neither did Survival) but at least in the Yukon, I didn’t know where to go to find supplies. In Mocktropica and Monster Carnival, it seemed like they handed you the tools you needed, instead of having you look for them yourself.

Overall, I think Survival was just what we needed. I can tell you that I am excited to “catch my next meal under the ice” in the second episode: Hook, Line, and Sinker, coming soon.

Survival: Crash Landing rating: 4.5/5

Hope you enjoyed my review! 🙂 (I will likely do another one for the second episode)

Coming Soon: Survival Island

Hey guys! Most of you have heard already that the next Poptropica island is… Survival! However, the Creators are trying something new out for this new adventure.

See, we know you were getting tired of waiting months for each new Island. And we were getting tired of making you wait months for each new Island. That’s why Survival will be our first episodic Island. Instead of waiting forever for it to come out all at once, you’ll be able to play each chapter as it becomes available.

In other words: more new Poptropica adventures, more often!

Episodes, huh? I’m not sure if that will work out, but it’s worth a shot!

The first episode is called “Crash Landing.” It will be available for members on March 20. It’s synopsis is that “Night has fallen and the temperature is dropping. Alone in the forests of the Yukon, you must find a way to build a fire — but time is running out.”

Episode two is called “Hook, Line and Sinker.” It’s about how “With no help in sight, your hunger threatens to overtake you. Can you catch your next meal under the ice — or will you become fish food?”

So, you remember all those winter forest scenes in recent Daily Pops? Well they’re for Survival Island!

Right now, we know that two of the member’s only items are Wind Power and Ghillie Suit. If you were quick, you might’ve seen them in the Poptropica Store, but they aren’t there anymore (for now). Thank the PTFP for the images. 😉

members only item 1 members only item 2

Then, there is the poster and wallpaper for the island (island extras). They could be for the whole island, but considering they both say “Crash Landing” we might get a wallpaper and post for each individual episode!

There isn’t much known about the island, so we’ll just have to wait and see! Click here to visit the island info page.
