Hello all! Was 2013 a crazy year, or what? I know for me it was! With a new year looming on the horizon, it’s always good to take a look back at what has happened in the previous year, and see what you may have missed! Between now and New Years, I am going to take you on a journey into the past, looking at Poptropica’s great leaps this year!!

Time Tangled: Now with sound!

Yes, you read that correctly! Time Tangled Island, Poptropica's 3rd Island released has now become Poptropica's 4th Island released with sound!

 

 First appearing in 2008, Time Tangled Island has now become one of the first islands to receive sound effects and music! I must say, this is the best job yet on the music and sound effects. 

First, the sound effects are amazing. The creators really went all out on this one. Everything is absolutely perfect in regards to the sound effects! The music is also top notch! Every time period has it's own different soundtrack! The most amazing probably is the bad future. The song is both creepy, but perfect for the game! If you haven't had a chance to check out the new update take a look at the video bellow!

In other news, a new creator has surfaced. You may have seen him in Daily Pop previews. You may have seen him hiding in Zomberry Island. But you have never seen him like this! A creator who needs to learn how to spell!

Our first look at some possible Mocktropica Island locations!!

A break from the news:
Hey everyone! I didn’t disappear, I have just been REALLY swamped with school work this semester but I’m finally having time to both play and blog! Don’t worry, I’m going to be very active from now on that I managed to get through this first semester of high school!

Back to the news!
With Mocktropica Island getting nearer and nearer, we may be getting our first look at what the inner workings of the Island will look like via the Daily Pop!

Mock3 - CopyMock2 - Copy
Mock1 - CopyMock4 - Copy
Mock7Mock5

It looks like some of these resemble already established islands such as Twisted Thicket or Astro-Knights! Do you think that we will have to go into old islands and fix them? Some others look like we could either be creating new locations or maybe finishing locations. Either way, I think that these new locations shown in these previews will be pretty exciting!!
What do you think of these possible locations? How do you think that these locations will play into Mocktropica?
