How’s it going, everyone? I’m Invisible Ring and I’m here today to uncover the secrets of Poptropica Airways! Hundreds of you have commented about it since August, waiting to hear more about it, and your wait is finally ending!
That’s Right! I have communicated with the source; none other than Poptropica itself! They have allowed me to interview them with some questions on Poptropica Airways!
OK… Maybe I have more than just some. I have a LOT of questions. I have surfed the blog comments, talked to the PHB club, and wracked my brain to get every airway question down that I could in one fell swoop.
What is Poptropica Airways?
Poptropica Airways, also known as Paradise Island, was a beta experience we created to understand what features players today would like to see in Poptropica. It allowed us to test a new experience for entering the game, news messages, plus daily tasks and rewards. These tests allow us to quickly see what new players are interested in so we know if new features would be a good fit in Poptropica. The news system from Poptropica Airways has already made it into the main game and more features are on their way!
Is it anything like Poptropica Worlds?
No, it's totally separate from the Poptropica Worlds app. It only had a few days of content to play through where you got to decorate your beach house, visit friends, complete tasks, and earn rewards.
Is it a new island?
Yes and no. It was a beta of a new type of Home Island so we could see what type of stuff our players want on Home Island. Anyone who has played Poptropica for a long time knows that Home Island goes through periodic updates. At one point there wasn't even a Home Island, just the map!
Is it a station to access special islands such as Legendary Swords or Monkey Wrench? As in islands that don’t start with a yellow blimp?
No, it was just a test for a new Home Island experience and mostly a light test for a task system.
Is it going to be a full-sized, fun, and super-exciting game?
We may eventually incorporate into the main game, but 2021 is really focused on story. Poptropica Airways was focused on functionality and didn't have a lot of story behind it. For now we're sticking with full-sized fun stuff that is true to Poptropica's roots!
Is this going to replace the yellow blimp? (because I hope it’s not)
Nope! The blimp will always be part of Poptropica!
So for all of you out there who have been waiting to know more about Airways… I hope this helps. As for you, Poptropica, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP WITH THIS! It is an honor to be one of your guest bloggers!
As a side note, I am currently running a Youtube Channel under the name of Invisible Ring. If you want to hear more blog posts from me, I can start a series of Vlog videos on my channel and connect with you guys. Until then, I’m gettin’ back to my online classwork! Invisible Ring out.
