Poptropica Inside and Out

Well….This is Embarrassing…


Hey guys!

This is embarrassing isn’t it? I feel so so so bad. I still cannot believe that I actually told y’all that I was coming back, and then never even logged on to this account.

The truth is, I do miss playing Poptropica. It was quite fun, and interacting with you guys was probably one of the best things ever. The other truth is, I’m super busy. Finals are coming up soon, which means I probably won’t be able to even TURN ON my computer or phone to post or play. After finals, I’ll ave summer, which I probably will have time to post, but then after that, it’s my eighth grade year. Eighth grade year means I’ll have to work SUPER hard to graduate as valedictorian or salutatorian. There’s also the matter of deciding what high school to go to, applying, etc.

So what I’m trying to say is, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for promising to come back when I didn’t. I’m sorry for being inactive as heck. I’m sorry for not posting for six months. But most of all, I’m sorry for letting you guys down.

As for this blog, I’m not sure. There’s a very low chance that I’ll actually still be active  on it. Maybe I’ll come on once or twice.

So even though I’m probably not going to be active on here, I’m SUPER active on Instagram. My account is @adisneylifetime so follow me, spam me, stalk me, whatever you’d like 😉

Signing off for what very possibly be the last time,

Trusty Biker

Glad to Be Back!


Hi guys,

It’s Trusty Biker. I don’t know if you remember me, it’s been so long. Anyway, I’m really sorry about the inactivity, but it is my plan to change all that.

Incredible Flame and Cool Octopus have sadly left the blog, so it is just me right now. I’ve gotten a couple of requests from people to be authors on the blog and I plan to look over them soon.

I’m going to work on the Timmy Failure Island walkthrough, but I have yet to finish the island xD.

Everything will be back to normal in no time. Except, it’s going to be  a whole lot better.

Genius takes time, patience, trials, and retrials.

Until next time,

Trusty Biker

A School Lesson = A Big Idea


Hey Poptropicans!!

Hope you haven’t forgotten about the costume contest!! You have about 16 days to enter!

Anyway, to my post.

I recently had a lesson about podcasts. It explained in detail what it was, how to listen to one, and how to make one.

This gave me an awesome idea.

piaopodcasts

What if PIaO had a weekly, or biweekly, podcast? There would be nothing on the screen; just voices, so you can listen while playing Poptropica, or even blogging.

We could talk about numerous things, and even have guest bloggers on our show!

So maybe a little more of a show than a podcast. Maybe we could even kind of combine them.

What do you guys think?

I, of course, would be the head of the department, but if anyone has computer or graphic smarts and wants to help, they can.

What would we talk about?

Shut that question back in your mouth.

There are MILLIONS of things to talk about. We could talk about the pros and cons of the Sound Updated Islands (WATCH OUT, FIRST EPISODE!). We could talk about PCon3. We could talk about any and every single island out there in Poptropica.

So, what do you think?

I want to go for it!! Who’s with me?

We’re Moving-More Details!


Hey everyone! It’s Trusty Biker over here! So, in our last Sunday Night Special, we mentioned that we would be moving our site. And that’s no lie!

Previously, we had our site over on Wix. We also had this site, but we didn’t keep up with it that much. Now, we’re going to discard our Wix site, and do everything fully on this site! If you only read posts on this site anyway, it won’t affect you. Everything, and I mean everything, will be on this site.

If you’re following this blog, you may have noticed that you’re receiving dozens of emails that say NEW POST, NEW POST! from our blog. That’s because we’re moving all our posts from Wix onto this site. It takes a lot of copying and pasting, believe me! 😉

So you don’t have to pay much attention to those posts. They’re mostly old news. But if you want to read them, you can! 😛 I can’t really stop you from reading them 😀

Here are a couple details about our move; what we’ll be losing and gaining.

What We’re Losing:

  • Our site-members feature. You’ll no longer be able to sign up to become a site-member, and access the special pages on our site. They’ll be open to the public!
  • The tickets pop-up. If you get 100 tickets, you get to write a Sunday Night Special. On our old site, every time you logged into our site, a pop-up will come and tell you to sign up for tickets. Yeah, we’re losing that. Instead, if you want your daily tickets, you’ll have to go to a separate page each day to fill out a form and get tickets. I know it’s annoying, but it’s the best thing we can do 😦
  • Our forums page. On our old site, we had a forum that anybody can access, and it was really cool, but on WordPress, you can’t have that, so we’re losing that page.

That’s basically all we’re losing, or all I can think of, that is :D. The good thing is, nothing is really SUPER important, and that’s a GREAT thing! We’re not even losing our Sponsors!

Now, I’m going to blog about our regular Poptropica news. I just felt I had to get that first part out of the way first 🙂


THE POPTROPICA REALMS UPDATE:

So, if you’ve been on Poptropica Realms for the past couple of days, you’ll notice a huge update on Realms. Here’s a list. I’ll go into more detail about each one later on in the post.

  • Weather. Yeah, weather!
  • New hammer abilities- Ground Pound, Hammerang, and Super Jump!
  • Get 2 costumes-one with a promo code, and one when you reach level 15!
  • Annoying Pixies that steal your Poptanium
  • Interactive Items!

Let’s get into more detail, shall we?

Okay, first, weather! In the forest biome, you get rain. Just rain, and it doesn’t do anything to you. You can even hear it!

normal rainIn the snow biome, we’ve got snow, obviously. And in the sand realm, you’ve got sandstorms. Oh, and watch out for the weather in the Lunar Biome and Swamp Biome. They have acid rain and meteors! It takes away your health if you don’t get under something.

What’s next? Oh yeah! The hammer abilities. If you look at the bottom of your screen, while in Mine mode, depending on what level you’re on, you’ll see 3 images. I’m in level 11, so I only have 2 images.

Those 3 images give you different abilities. I don’t know about Super Jump, but in Hammerang and Ground Pound, if you click on those images, the hammer breaks a big part of the ground. I’m not really sure what Super Jump does, so if anybody in the comments would like to help me 😀 hammer abilities hammerang

 

 

 

Now, we’re going to talk about the costumes! If you enter the promo code, GOREALMS, you get a cool Realms Builder Costume!

Now, my least favorite part of the update: Pixies. They appear in the night, and in the first few lights of day. They come out and, WAM! They take 10 Poptanium from you! Why the only thing you can do to escape this is dig a hole, trap yourself, and wait until morning comes.

Luckily, if they steal your Poptanium, grab your hammer and give them a blast. They’ll drop your Poptanium and fly away!

Now, for the last part of the post-the interactive items! If your health is low, build a type of food, like apples or even spaghetti. Then, go to explore mode and click on the food you built. Your character will say YUM! and your health will go up!

On some other blogs, I’ve heard that there are more interactive items. All I can find is that if you put the chest, and click on it, it will open. If anybody in the comments have found some more interactive items, let me know in the comments or send me a picture!

Well, that’s all for today! If anybody has any questions concerning our move, or about the Realms updates, let us know! Comment below, or send me an email at trustybiker031@gmail.com!

Trusty out!

P.S. Don’t tell anybody, but we will be having a page where you can become an author on our blog soon!
