Blue Reviews: Puffle Party 2016

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Blue Reviews – a topic in which I speculate and discuss the different parties that visit Club Penguin every month. Each of my reviews are separated into different sections where I review the parties’: Storyline, Visuals, Content and Replay Value. At the end, I round off the review with the Verdict. This concludes my thoughts on the party with comments on the party, as a whole. Afterwards, I rate the party with a score out of 10. Feel free to let me know what you think of the monthly party in the comments section. I hope you will enjoy my review on this month’s party:

Island Discussion #19: August

Hey everyone!

In today’s Island Discussion, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about what we can expect this August seeing that we have only just started the month and it does seem to be an interesting one from what I have gathered so far. Megg – Community Manager of Club Penguin – has been experimenting with a few ways to reveal what players can expect with a particular month. In June, it started off with a calendar which was very revealing but many players wanted one of these every month. I felt that these weren’t the best technique so Megg tried something different in July: A few images, words and phrases. Funny enough, not even all of the listed things to look forward to happened so July was only well known for the Inside Out Party and the first #ProectSuperSecret sneak peek. For August, Megg decided to create anagrams of each phrase for a twist. In some ways, I respect this idea more than the others since it gives player a challenge to be able to find out what to expect and several of them were quite hard to solve. However with the on-going support from the community, we managed to find them out quite quickly! If you are not looking for spoilers on what to expect this August, then I am afraid that this post is not for you. Sorry!

Above is the list of anagrams! In this post I am going to translate each one and discuss what these mean and explore what we can expect. The first one is ‘Did you notice?!’. At first I looked at this one and assumed that the following list of anagrams were related to this phrase however it was confirmed by Megg (via the comments section) that this is going to be an upcoming post on the Club Penguin Blog where the team are going to reveal some little changes that occurred to the Club Penguin app. I do believe that these changes have already occurred with the release of the Inside Out Party however I am not entirely sure if I am true. I know that one of the changes is that they have animated the bell on the reception desk within the lobby inside of the Puffle Hotel. Apparently if you walk next to it, it should automatically DING!

There must be other changes that are going to be revealed in this post. It makes me wonder why Club Penguin are paying attention to these little details on the app. What about the web version? Perhaps this posts says a lot more about the future of Club Penguin as well as what changes have occurred. With Club Penguin focusing on the app with these changes, does this confirm that the app is going to have some kind of priority over the web version in the future. What do you think?

The Cart Surfer Combo

If played correctly, Cart Surfer can earn you many coins in minutes. It may take up to 5 attempts however you will be earning thousands of coins in no time. I have my own combo which keeps me on a roll throughout the game. It is very simple but probably the best combo you would have ever come across.

This combo is made up of two moves. For the first move, you do an air somersault. Keyboard wise, this is quite simple but he timing has to be right. You press the down arrow first and shortly after press the space bar. The arrow tilts the mine cart and the space bar makes it jump. In a combo you should end up with a flip which earns you 100 points. That is quite a lot!

The next move is very simple. All you need to do is just walk on the track. By doing this, you press and hold the down arrow for a short amount of time. For this move you get 80 points which is only 20 points less than the first combo.

Now I call these two ‘The Cart Surfer Combo’ which is what earns you a lot of points in the game. All you do is take turns in performing the tricks so you get 100 points then 80, then 100…etc. The score adds up quite a lot by performing these moves. Adding the Black Puffle may increase your performance in the game. The reason why you shouldn’t perform the same trick in a row is because the score decreases; the game wants you to be unique with your moves. Continue reading

Blue Reviews: Rainbow Puffle Party

Hello everyone!

Welcome to another ‘Blue Reviews’ where I evaluate the monthly parties/events that occur in Club Penguin. For each party I review, I will explore four areas in which the party is going to be reviewed upon. These are: Story, Visuals, Content and Durability. After reviewing these four areas, I will then conclude my review with a Verdict! This summarises what I have mentioned throughout the review and everything will be averaged into a score out of 10. I hope you will enjoy my review on this months party…

Rainbow Puffle Party!

Island Discussion #15: The Truth Behind The Merry Walrus

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a special Island Discussion which explores one of a few mysteries that have recently been hinted at since the revealing of the new Mystery Attic. This new room is awesome and I am sure Club Penguin intended to leave players thinking as some of the artefacts and objects stored inside may foreshadow future events that will occur in the coming months of Club Penguin. For now, I have left the Club Penguin Times Office so that I can move into the Mystery Attic for some detailed research.

Here I am, moving in:
