Poptropica just announced the name of their newest island. It’s called Twisted Thicket Island and it’s a kind of Norwegian forest mythology thing. You go deep into the woods and encounter fabled creatures of Norse legend. Oh, and there’s a bulldozer. Makes total sense, right?
They haven’t announced when it will be released, but I’m guessing it will be really soon. In the meantime, take a look at the trailer and more information from Fierce Moon at PoptropicaSecrets.com:
And in related news, Vampire’s Curse Island will be available for everyone to play (not just paid members) on Thursday, March 22. If you like vampires (who doesn’t?) definitely check it out. Paid members get a pretty cool exclusive vampire costume but only if they play the sneak peek before the island is available for everyone. Check out the full Vampire’s Curse Island Walkthrough if you get stuck.
Wow it has been a long time since I have posted here, everyone. So sorry about that. I guess I have just been busy and haven’t been playing Club Penguin that much. I did just check out the big Rockhopper’s Quest party last week. I’ve been playing a lot more Poptropica these days. The new Vampire’s Curse Island just came out and it’s pretty amazing. In it you have to rescue a teenager from a vampire who lives up in a creepy castle. You also must help cure everyone of vampirism by mixing a special potion.
Back to Club Penguin, there are still four days left for Rockhopper’s quest, so check it out if you haven’t tried it yet.
The new edition of the Club Penguin Halloween Party is here. There are a lot of things from previous parties that are back and plenty of new stuff, too. First things first: the free item! This year it’s the purple bat wings and you’ll find them in a box at the Plaza.
You’ll probably want to do the Halloween Candy Hunt too. This is a really fun scavenger hunt where you go around the island following clues to find pieces of candy. Club Penguin did a really good job of hiding them this year and they are tricky to find. The clues really help. Here is where they are all hidden.
In the trees at the Beach
In the trees at the Snow Forts
Behind the pumpkin stem at the iceberg
Up on the shelf with all the wigs in the Gift Shop
Inside the Pizza Shop on the left side of the organ
Inside the Ski Lodge above the fireplace
Inside the giant cauldron in the Plaza
On top of the Lighthouse next to the telescope
When you complete the Halloween Candy Hunt you’ll get the Forest Path Background as a prize. You’ll also earn the Scavenger Hunt stamp for your stamp book.
Members have two great rooms to visit at the Halloween Party and both are available through paths in the Forest. The first one is the Haunted House, which we saw last year. Anyone can go to the outside of the house, but only members can go inside. There’s a ghost costume available for free in a box on top of the stairs on the left side.
Members can also go into a special new room this year called the Dark Chamber. This is a series of rooms that you go through to get to a special Monster Maker area. The whole area is for members only and in the last room you’ll have a chance to meet Gary the Gadget Guy when he visits servers. You’ll also get some free items. They are a storm lantern which you use to find your way through the maze and the second is a pile o’ candy which you can use in your own igloo.
There are also lots of cool places to check out on the island for this year’s Halloween Party. My favorite is the iceberg, which has turned into a giant pumpkin. You can carve a jack-o-lantern out of it if you put on a construction helmet and use your jackhammer to drill by doing the dance move. Another great place to visit is the Beacon. The lantern has turned into a giant jack-o-lantern there as well.
I got the Rockhopper Stamp today when I logged into Avalanche today after checking out SecretPenguin’s Rockhopper Tracker. So that is one out of eight character stamps. Seven more to go!
And did you notice that the Rockhopper player card background changed? This is what it looks like now.
What do you think of the Club Penguin Fair this year? I like it but a lot of the events are just repeats. I think all of the events are repeats as a matter of fact. The prizes are pretty cool though. I have to go get enough tickets together to get that clown suit. It rocks!
The big Club Penguin Medieval Party arrived a little early yesterday. It’s a huge party like always and there is a lot to do. I think CP took a lot of things from last year’s party and just put them out again with no changes. I am really disappointed that the free item is the stupid blue wizard’s hat again. I wish they’d come up with something new. If you didn’t already have the hat, go to the lighthouse and get it. You’ll see it where they always put it for this party. It’s on the table in the bottom corner.
The dragon in the Mine is back too. You can control him with the Switchbox 3000. Rawr!
There is also a new pin that came out with the party. It’s the shield pin. The pin is over at the Cove in the back.
Members get some new stuff and some old stuff too. There are now two Knight’s Quests for the party. The first is the exact same as last year’s but you get new prizes and the second is new. You have to be a paid member to do them and I let my membership expire so I couldn’t play them.
The Earth Day party just began on Club Penguin. It looks good. Go to town and you’ll see that the buildings are all green to help celebrate. The best part of the party is the Recycle Hunt which is a scavenger hunt all over the island that works exactly like the Easter Egg Hunt and the Halloween Candy hunt from last year. I think CP maybe felt bad about canceling the Easter Egg Hunt this year so this makes up for it.
When you finish the Recycle Hunt, you’ll get a special pin that gets you into the brand-new Recycling Center, which is next to the mine.
And also at the mine is the free item for the party! It’s the Straw Gardening Hat and you’ll get it right next to the mine.
And there is another pin available. It’s the Leaf Pin and it is hidden up on top of the Ski Hill right next to the sign for the Ridge Run ski race in the back.
Another year, another april fool’s party on Club Penguin. This one is a lot of fun. Many of the rooms in Club Penguin have been changed around with great tricks and surprises. Here’s a picture of the Forest, which is completely upside down!
My favorite place is the Spinning Arrow Room, which is where the mine normally is. It’s a fun joke about how sometimes when you try to go to rooms you get stuck with the spinning arrows.
There are lots of other funny changes and surprises all over the island. Check out town with the invisible buildings and the dock. There are also lots of cardboard boxes around the place and many of them have funny things inside when you move your mouse cursor over them.
I haven’t played Club Penguin for a few weeks. Been busy with other stuff and I think the game has been getting a little boring lately. But I came back to check out the new edition of the Club Penguin Play Awards that started this weekend. They’re kind of like last year’s awards with a few changes. There is a free press hat at the Dock and you can vote for your favorite plays at the ballot box outside the awards in the plaza. Most of the plays nominated are the same ones as last year because Club Penguin didn’t have a lot of new plays at the stage this year.
Members can go backstage inside the Stage area to a special room that has two free items. There is a play awards statuette and a video camera in the backstage area. Also, DJ Cadence and Aunt Arctic have been making appearances inside this room.
