Breaking News: The Blitz on the Fritz side quest has gone LIVE! 🐝

It’s happening, it’s finally happening! All hands on deck! 🥳

 

If you’re “the kind of bold, young hero that has what it takes to save the day,” you’re needed on Goofball Island! Make haste Poptropicans, time is of the essence!

 

Now’s your chance to officially meet Katie Dare and see what all the commotion is about. Members, you can meet up with a unicycle-riding Mayor Naise on Home Island! He’ll bring you straight to the action. Otherwise, head to Goofball Island’s Mainstreet to begin the new Blitz on the Fritz side quest.

You’ll find the Katie Dare reporting from City Hall. She confesses that Blitz, a Bee Bot, has gone rogue – it’s transforming the other islands! It’s up to you to clean up Blitz’s mess and reverse the damage. Help Katie Dare normalize the goofified and blandified islands before it’s too late!

You can play the quest on both desktop and mobile versions of the game! However, you must have already earned your Goofball medallion and be a member in order to accept the new side quest. Once you complete Blitz on the Fritz, you’re gifted a huge credit reward and your very own Bee Bot follower! After you've saved the islands from Blitz, be sure to sound off in the comments about the quest. Share any thoughts and first impressions you have with other players!

 

We won’t spoil the rest of the quest for you. Head over to Goofball Island to start your Blitz on the Fritz experience!

Hello Poptropica! Here are my thoughts. I really loved Goofball Island in general, but this side quest just didn't live up to its name. I was hoping a bit more of an adventure, not 4 mini-games. Another thing that made this quest kinda suck is that the mini-games were SO boring and easy. I just sprayed around until time's up, and there was no challenge at all! The Bee-Bot and the credits were very nice though. I also like how the T.V. showed the bland and goofy versions of the islands. Reminds me of Super Villains Island, where the cutscene showed how Dr. Jupiter (Zeus), took over Mythology, Shark Tooth, and Mystery Train Island. Other than that, this quest just wasn't that great, considering how it's only for members too.

Why is it for members I feel like you guys dont care for the people who play ur game! You guys made everything for members! Arabic Nights 2, Mission Atlantis 1, The Fairy Tale Island side quest, and this dumb side quest. Me and my friend will stop playing Poptropica if everything is just for members. My Mom will never get me membership anyways.

Its not like bringing poptropica back is easy. they still need money to operate i cant get membership either. but i am not going to whine about it. just wait

I agree, @crazy kid, and @Cheerful Gamer, you can get an one-month* membership at the PHB! Link: https://poptropi.ca/community/free-poptropica-membership/ That's how I got a FREE membership!

*note that it WILL expire after 1 month, and you can't get another one until 6 months later.

Crazy Kid I know bringing back islands is hard but that's not what I'm asking for. I'm just asking if they can stop letting members have all the fun before the people who play the game wayyyyyyyy after members (Non- Members). I just feel like it's unfair, you know.

So I'm not trying to annoy people or irritate the but I just wanna let people know about my own opinion because that literally what the comments are for. You're opinion.

At least from the picture, the mayor isn't an animation, although I am not a member.
Even though I'm not getting a membership so I will won't play the side quest, I prooobably wouldn't get a membership anyway because there isn't much left of Poptropica to play anyway. Poptropica went from great with hard, long and fun islands to not fun with animations and islands that only consist of minigames and a store that is alienated from the original store. I feel like Poptropica is getting alienated from the good old Poptropica we used to know.
But it's not too late Poptropica creators, you can still bring back many players if the old islands come back, you stop or limit the animations and if the store changes again, to make it a bit more like the original store.
But it doesn't mean that you guys are doing a bad job, you have already brought back arabian nights and mission Atlantis. You guys are actually doing pretty good. All I'm asking is if we can have news on the old islands and if we can have a vote on which old island will be converted first.
Keep up the work Poptropica!

why is it always for members?!You know that there are other people who either can't afford membership or thier parents are the kind who won't pay anything extra on a game:(I agree with Cheerful Gamer.
