Poptropica Tips and Tricks: Emote control

You probably already know that when you're in a multiplayer room on Poptropica, you can click the emote buttons on the side of the screen to make your character smile, cry, pout, and jump for joy. Did you know you can also do these elsewhere in the game?

A simple keyboard combination will allow you to use any of the emotes during your adventures, which lets your character react to the story as it happens.

Press Ctrl+Shift+1 to laugh at pompous jerks.

Press Ctrl+Shift+2 to cry when you receive bad news.

Press Ctrl+Shift+3 to blow your stack at a faun who's giving you guff.

And press Ctrl+Shift+4 to celebrate getting a new item.

That's not all! You can combine some of these emotes to create brand-new ones that you won't see in any common room. First, start the angry emote by pressing Ctrl+Shift+3. Once your character's face is red, but before his head pops off, enter either the happy or the sad emote!

Everyone will think you've spent too much time in the sun. Sunscreen, people!
