Annoying News

Warning: This is not an April Fools joke. Or is it?

The advertising arcades around Poptropica have been removed, & the original Arcade (a multiplayer room) has been returned to Early Poptropica.

Now, you guys might be thinking ‘So what, two cheesy buildings are gone?’. That’s not all that has disappeared. If you played the games inside these arcades, you would have gotten a special suit. The special suits are gone. Dun dun dun!

Yup, that’s right. No more jetpacking in Shark Tooth, no more falling off skyscrapers & landing on the grounds softly, no more spacemen wandering around. 😦

I’ve e-mailed Nate Greenwall (one of the illustrators for Poptropica), but he doesn’t want me to publish his response. He never said anything about my e-mail though, so I think it’s safe to tell you about my idea. If they removed the logos of the product & then gave us back the costumes. (I mean seriously, who has ‘YOGOS’ on a spacesuit?)

So don’t lose hope, you may have your Propeller Cap yet! But in the mean time, look at these cool sneak peeks I got my hands on!

Here’s what Nate has to say about those Red & Yellow faces in the top right hand corner of the screen:

“We all want to have friends right? Well, sometime in the future, we hope to allow users to be able to collect and add friends, so this will be a button to have access to your friends. Now don’t ask me when this will happen, because I can’t tell you. But is will be cool.”

If you’ve looked at the Poptropica map, you might have noticed the two other Islands that aren’t available yet. One is called Time Twisted Island. Well, this one is going to be available sometime in April. Here are some pictures I got, these were deleted from Nate’s blog, so it’s lucky I saved them.

This image isn’t that special because you can see it on Poptropica while climbing up/down ropes, but I thought I’d post it anyway. 😛

There’s also a Roman soldier on top of some building in Shark Tooth. Weird.

I don’t even know if this room will be used, but it looks cool.

Now let’s look on some happier times, times when we had space suits & hover suits…

I miss my suits.. that made me feel even worse! This sucks.

In other news: An ad for Alvin & the Chipmunks appears when walking from one room to the other. Great, no suits & annoying chipmunks. I’m starting to take back the remark I made about these ads in this game’s review. 😐

    Holla!

    I created a dude for Poptropica, I dont really think it is that good. I mean, you can’t really chat. I have definetely seen some better games in my time, although the graphics and gameplay are truly immense.

    Not amazing, all I can say.

    Any other good games? I love this blog, love what you have done with it, love the concept. There are some more games out there which you could rate 😉

    Please reply… somehow,

    legoless: I have two more games, one isn’t really a game, & neither are multilayer, will they do? I’ve run dry of multiplayer games, if I find any more, I’ll be sure to post.

    Actully Lego there are more multiplayer games. Go to vmk.com for one.
    legoless: VMK looks… idk, I heard of it a while ago, it looks more like an adult site. Nevermind, I thought you were talking about something else.

    Oh yeah in Time Twisted Island were supposed to be able to help famous people and go to the future too.
    legoless: It’s only the past, not the future.

    It’s on top of the Anciet Ruins roof. Climp up the big tree (don’t leave the room though) and jump onto it.
    Also, I probably won’t be able to blog because of shock. I’m surprised I haven’t gone into a coma. WordPress made the Dashboard sucky, I can’t post. I don’t mean to be harsh, but OMG I FREAKIN HATE IT! Anyway, hopefully WordPress will change it abck in the morning, or this is all some wacky dream.

    maybe the aquarium was supposed to be the chat room for shark tooth, and then they changed it to coconut cafe

    Hey Lego,

    The aquarium image is very interesting. I’m sorry if this has been asked already, but I’m curious to know where it came from. Can you please tell me where you got it, how did you find/know about it, and what it’s for? Thanks!

    Caioh
    legoless: It’s off the blog of one of the artists for Poptropica. However, he doesn’t post about it anymore and probably wouldn’t apreciate me linking you to his site. I dunno what it’s for, but it’s probably not going to be used.
