Get unlucky this Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, the unluckiest day on the calendar. Well, we at Poptropica laugh in the face of superstition. Here are some of the places in Poptropica where you can really try your luck.

Cross paths with a black cat on 24 Carrot Island

Okay, so Whiskers is really more of a pale gray color, but that's kinda like black. Besides, when you cross paths with this fickle feline, you will definitely feel as though you've been cursed. Why won't he just follow you?

24 Carrot Island is free to play on both Poptropica Original (web and mobile) and Poptropica Worlds!

Walk under a ladder on Twisted Thicket

When you walk under a ladder, do you think the bad luck is more for you, or for the person up on the thing? On Twisted Thicket, we sure wouldn't mind placing a hex on the lumberjerks and their plans for the enchanted forest.

Twisted Thicket is free to play on Poptropica Original!

Break a mirror (or several) on Monster Carnival

They say breaking a mirror is worth seven years' bad luck. But we think that getting hypnotized and turned into a monster by Ringmaster Raven would be a lot worse than that -- so smash away!

Monster Carnival is free to play on Poptropica Original!

Throw some salt over your shoulder on Ghost Story Island 

This is one superstition that has never made any sense to us. We're totally down with the idea that spilling salt is bad luck. That just makes sense. But for the remedy to be spilling even more salt? That's simply absurd.

Ghost Story Island is free to play on Poptropica Original!

We're willing to be there are even more unlucky places on Poptropica. Let us know what we missed!

The joys of a joystick

Now that the beta version of Dr. Hare's Revenge is available for Poptropica Members, we thought you'd all like a look at the new control scheme we're trying on mobile devices. Here's how it looks:

The first thing to notice is the virtual joystick in the bottom left. This is how you'll move your Poptropican. Place your thumb on the big white dot in the center, and then slide left or right to make your character move.

Just as with the original controls, if you move just a bit, your character will walk, and if you move more, they'll run. But you won't need to move quite so far now.

In the bottom right is the jump button. This should be self-explanatory. Press it to jump. Tap for a short jump, and hold for a longer one.

Last is the smaller button above the jump. There won't always be a button here. It'll appear when you're able to accomplish an action such as entering a door. If there's no context-sensitive action available, then there won't be a button.

So that's it! What do you think? How does it compare to the classic Poptropica controls you're used to?

If you want to get your hands on the new control scheme, become a Poptropica Member today and download the latest update of the Poptropica Worlds app. Then get playing!
