Poptropican Reviews: Lunar Colony Members Pack!

Poptropica has released the members pack for lunar colony! this pack includes: the Alien Archaeology power, the Zaggy Moondust costume, and Moon Rock power. my personal favorite, alien archaeology power, is pictured in the upper left corner of the picture to the left.as you can see, when you activate this power from your backpack, a huge rock comes out of the ground. the rock is glowing purple and has weird ( probably alien ) symbols on it. i like this power because, well, who doesn't like giant purple rocks coming out of the ground?! and, it provides a nice statue for pewter moon. the only thing i don't like is that you activate it straight from your back pack, unlike other items you hold and then activate, which allows you to pick a spot in the ground before it starts growing. but i guess you can't really hold a giant rock. anyways, another item i love is the moon rock power. the moon rock power, when activated, creates a bunch of moon rocks that float around your screen for a short period of time. the thing i like about this is that you can move your character around while the rocks are floating instead of having to just stand there the whole time. i also like that, besides floating, the rocks will bump into each other and sometimes crunch into little pieces.the third, and limited time item, is the "zaggy moondust" costume. i think this costume looks awesome! i love the lightening bolt and the hair and.. well, everything! thank you poptropica for making a limited time outfit that i actually want to buy! now, although this outfit is epic, one question remains: who in the world is zaggy moondust?! my guess? a character from lunar colony, most likely some kind of alien celebrity, considering his or her clothes. there are two zaggy moondust costumes: one a girl, the other a boy. I'm guessing the real zaggy is a boy, but it could be either. over all, i love this members pack and it's probably the best one yet, considering it doesn't have a lame outfit like the poptropilas one. so members, buy it! and quickly because the zaggy moondust costume will not be available forever! and non-members, i really hope that the wait for you guys isn't long because even though i think the items in the members pack are awesome, i hate that it's members only.and i really hope that poptropica will at least release part of the pack to non-members. also, one last update before i end this post. poptropica has released some more info about lunar colony, which you can read by clicking here. See ya in the next post!

Double Store Items Glitch!

While i was replaying some islands on poptropica, i went into my store items to find a costume. and i saw this. i have two of each of everything from the poptropica store! this glitch is weird because, as far as i know, it is impossible to own more than one of the same store item. so far, i am the only one with this glitch, but i will be experimenting with my backup characters to see how this glitch appeared. now, at first i thought this glitch was minor and didn't really make any problems. but actually, it creates a huge problem! right now, you can only have 26 pages of store items. as you can see in the picture, i now have 26 pages because of double the items. if i had 13 pages of items originally ( as calculated by lazy flyer, the math genius ), i would still have all my items. but, i originally had 16 pages, so three pages of items i cannot access! i can arrange them alphabetically to access some of my newer items, but three pages will still be left out. poptropica has had alot of problems lately, and i really hope they fix this so that i can access my items! update: this glitch is now fixed. yay! from my experimenting, only some of my other characters had this glitch. my theory is that this glitch appeared because of poptropica releasing Wimpy Boardwalk to non-members. they probably messed something up while making the updates. now i can view all my items again. :D

Next Poptropica Island: Lunar Colony!

Poptropica has just announced the next island: Lunar Colony! i knew it! with so many mentions of the moon in the daily pop, it wasn't hard to guess that the next island is about launching off to space. again. i am a bit disappointed that we have another space island instead of something completely new, but it still looks fun. anyways, there isn't much known about the island right now, so we don't have the release date yet. it looks like you have to travel to the moon and... well, I'm not sure what happens next. maybe you need to start a colony, or help one? as always, it will be a long wait for the island ( and an even longer wait for non-members :( ), but in the meantime, keep your eye out for sneak peeks. also, make sure to play poptropica's newest island, Wimpy Boardwalk! also, you can view the trailer for Lunar Colony above.
