Guest Blog: Review of the Baron's Airship by Warrior Moon ⚔️🌙

Hello fellow Poptropicans! Warrior Moon here!

 

Today I'll be reviewing the Baron's Airship! In case you didn't know, the Baron's Airship is where you can buy the winning outfits of the Monthly Costume Contest for free, as well as some other outfits stored in Poptropica's archives. The entrance to the Airship is the first thing you see when you enter poptropica, which is The Baron hanging from a rope in the sky. Click her and she will invite you to "Get off this dusty rock" and climb aboard. You will then be taken to the Airship's deck, which is also a common room. A special feature here is that you can invite people from your friends list to come to the ship! Walk to the left, and you will find the Cabin of Curiosities, where you can buy limited-edition outfits. To the right, you will find a plane mini-game, which will be discussed later.

But for now, the Cabin of Curiosities! If you walk to the left, you will find the winning costumes of the Monthly Costume Contest, available to ALL players for FREE! Shown here are the June winners. Buy them before they're gone! If you walk to the right, you will see some LEGENDARY costumes from Islands lost in time Including Binary Bard, Cyber Hunter, and Cosmic Noble, as well as some clubhouse items like the Hercules statue. The Baron can also be seen eating grapes in her throne-like chair.

 

As for the mini-game, you have to dodge storms and hit other blimps. You earn 50 credits from playing this mini-game.

 

Overall, I don't see anything bad about the Airship. I give it a 10/10! Thank you for reading my post! Meet you halfway!

Here is a thorough review of the Baron's Airship.
The Baron's Airship serves as a common room. I don't really like the changes in the thinking emojis and how large the options for speaking are. They take up a lot of space. That's not just for the Airship, though. You changed that for all the common rooms, but that's getting off topic.
The mini-game is challenging, which is good, because it's kind of the only new challenging thing in Poptropica now (I don't want to sound too negative, though). I do wish the challenge was rewarded with more credits. For the amount of credits things cost in the store, 50 bucks doesn't help much. Otherwise, I really like the game.
Now, onto the Cabin of Curiosities. I have to say, this is my favorite part. Coming from a person who's very nostalgic of original Poptropica, being able to buy early parts of Poptropica for reasonable prices is a dream come true. I look forward to the Cabin of Curiosities and it's cargo.
However, there is one problem that has been bothering me ever since the conversion, and that is the new animations of the characters.
I truly miss the old way of Poptropica, and the characters being animated to look differently is honestly annoying in my opinion. What's wrong with the old way? I was really hoping that the Airship wouldn't have these animations, but it did, and I don't think that's an improvement in the game.
Overall, I rate this new feature a 6/10. Hopefully, you'll reconsider the new animations.
Thank you for reading and please think about my feedback.

How can I get credits? I never get login money even if it says I do, and I can't get money from winning islands, either.

Hey it’s me skinny moon well not THE skinny moon I don’t even know if she plays anymore. But anyways, I was playing poptropica on one of the iPads and my randomized nickname was skinny moon and I just went with it. So if she’s not playing anymore you have another one. Lol I’m not even a member🤣!

I also find the animations anoying, in the way that each animation is tearing away at the original poptropica, although I can't wait to see the baron! Thankyou

I would rate the Airship 9/10. Everything's good about the Airship, I just wish that you could get more credits for the mini game.
