Parallax Scrolling in Poptropica

There’s a new post on the Poptropica Creator’s Blog about how they added parallax scrolling to all the islands to give them more visual depth. It’s kind of hard to see but if you watch their video you can tell how the background scrolls at a slower pace than the foreground. It’s an old trick that a lot of 2D animation uses to make left to right movement seem more realistic. I think it looks pretty good. I also made my own video showing it. It’s easiest to see the effect when you’re outdoors and the objects in the background are in plain view.

  2. poptropica is the most funest game ever.it’s alittle hard and alitle easy.it’s just FUN!

  3. Poptropica is the funnest game on earth! Except the waiting of getting from one place to another like if you go in a door you always have to wait.IT’S TOO BAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. poptropica is the best

  5. good but how does it happen the youtube video always fresses

  6. i love going on poptropica because the advertisments have missions and you get awesome stuff when you complete them but why are they always hard.

  7. I need help on that SSOO much!

  8. poptropica is not ugly

  9. poptropica is awesome dudes!!!!
    it is one of the collest websites ever

  10. i love poptropica its the best game in the world!! 🙂 <3

  11. I luv poptropica. It helps me get way from reality. some missions r soooooo easy, but some are so hard, like astro nights. You have 2 go to about a million places. (okay, not a million, but you have 2 go 2 like, 4 planets, and 1 huge asteroid. going to another planet is pretty far. but 4? thts like about a million places, along with the Asteroid.) But, i do figure y its hard. If its not, you wud finish poptropica faster, and then what? go on clubpenguin or something? the owner obviously wants to chalenge our minds and not make it so easy, we can leave in probably an hour finishing it.
