Hey Poptropicans, pop in for a big blue ad and little sketches! 🌀🖌
A new ad is popping up in the ad spaces between scenes, though not (yet?) on Home Island. Tap into the movie poster for “Blue’s Big City Adventure” — no ad building design this time — to enter a bright city park. Then click on Blue, the dog, to start a game of hide-and-seek.
Run around the park in search of the five items, and for your efforts, you’ll win a Blue Rainbow Follower and Blue Paw Prints. Enjoy! And if you’re interested, this live-action/animated movie based on the show Blue’s Clues is now streaming on Paramount+. 🐶
Speaking of ad spaces between scenes, the one from Amelia’s mini-quest has been popping up outside of visits to Adventure Outfitters. Now, you might also encounter this extra scene while heading off on your blimp to get to the map! Poptropica sure knows how to squeeze in their ad spots… and we’re stuck walking through them. 🙃
Rounding off this update, enjoy the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories full of villain vibes! 💥
Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!
Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here with the answers to round six of “What’s Missing?”, a Pop puzzle where I obscured items from in-game scenes for you to guess “what’s missing.” If you missed it, play the game on the original post before scrolling down for spoilers!
Shout-out to Smart Icicle for getting the majority correct! Anyway, here are the answers:
Surviving the times? Pop Worlds isn’t, but over on this side of Poptropica on Haxe (desktop and mobile), the next installments of Survival Island have just been re-released for both members and the public!
Ep. 3: Distress Signal is now on the map and open to members, while Ep. 2: Hook, Line, and Sinker is finally, after six months, open to all. Keep our Survival Island Guide handy if you’re embarking on this adventure!
While this wilderness saga is taking its sweet time to release on Haxe, Survival Island can be played in its entirety via Poptropica on Steam, with all five episodes included in a paid bundle alongside other islands.
Whether you’re a member or not, enjoy the new episode at your fingertips! (Guess we’ll have to wait a bit longer for the hinted Mission Atlantis…) And if in distress, visit our guide to get out of your mess. 😄
But by 2019, with barely any updates and some glitches never quite resolved, Poptropica quietly began to retire the game, first by hiding all links to it from their website. However, as long as you visited poptropica.com/worlds or downloaded the mobile app for iOS or Android devices, which would sync with the desktop game, you could still play it. But as of this week, it seems, not anymore.
Now, going to the link will redirect you back on the original Poptropica.com homepage. The app has also been removed from the Apple and Google Play stores, which seems to point to the official end for Poptropica Worlds. We’re sad to see it go! While there’s no archive of the game itself available, you can revisit its legacy through our various blog posts under the Poptropica Worlds category. Rest In Pop, Worlds.
Thanks to Muddy Fly and Dizzy Feather for sharing this news.
While we’re missing Pop Worlds, over on this side of Poptropica, we may soon be seeing the return of one of this year’s free costumes! On the Creators’ Blog, you can cast your vote for which player-designed outfit from the Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities you’d like to see make a comeback next month. Guess that means we won’t be seeing the airship this month, but at least it’ll be back in time for the winter holidays!
On the note of design, check out the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories — red’s a hot color this week! 🔥
ALOUETTE is standing on a large field, facing a large group of white dragons who are all awaiting commands from their leader. The WHITE DRAGON is at the very front, looking at the young witch.
I think he belongs to you.
ALOUETTE opens her bag and takes out PEARL, who has claimed the bag as his ‘nest’. She hands PEARL to the WHITE DRAGON, before taking a step back.
Goodbye Pearl. You have a family to go back to. You’ll be safe with them. Goodbye dragons. Have a safe trip back home.
ALOUETTE turns around to leave, but the WHITE DRAGON stops her.
The WHITE DRAGON glances at PEARL, who seems a little sad. They turn to face the other dragons, before handing PEARL back to ALOUETTE.
You’re leaving Pearl with me?
The WHITE DRAGON nods, before roaring at the sky and taking off, the other dragons following closely behind. ALOUETTE and PEARL watch them leave for their home. PEARL waves goodbye to the dragons, until they disappear into the clouds. ALOUETTE then starts heading back home after a long day. Fairytale Island had just been saved again, after all. Hopefully Rumpel wouldn’t come back for a while.
When she arrives home, she is surprised to find her mother talking with someone else. Someone she saw before when Rumpel stole the happy endings. Although she couldn’t remember their name…
Welcome home, dear. Say, have you met Amelia yet?
The guest, AMELIA, stands up. In her hand is a letter.
It’s nice to meet you, Alouette. Your mom told me about your previous two adventures on Fairytale Island. You can never trust a man with magic powers. Never.
*annoyed* Especially if he escapes twice.
AMELIA looks at ALOUETTE before handing her the letter.
We’ll never know when Rumpel will strike the island again. This letter is my gift to you, to prepare you for when he comes back.
ALOUETTE reads the letter:
To: Alouette Rees (Fearless Dragon)
You have been invited to join Camp Bravery, a summer camp for curious adventurers to sharpen their skills and answer the call of help when needed.
You have answered the call of help from Fairytale island not just once, but twice. Rumpelstiltskin may have escaped you both times, but you already show potential in defeating him once and for all. You helped Red, Snow white, and Cinder find new happy endings, and rescued the white dragons from Rumpel. You showed us that your heart is pure and full of kindness you’re willing to lend to others.
The new camp year will start on July 2, please let us know if you will accept this invite before June 20. We will be awaiting your response.
Amelia Earhart & Red Baroness, Camp Founders
I believe that if you join Camp Bravery, you will be able to perfect your abilities enough to take down Rumpel when he strikes again. I do hope you like the alias I gave you. It was fitting considering what you did to save the dragons. The choice is yours, Alouette.
ALOUETTE turns to face her mother, who smiles and gives a nod of approval. PEARL also nods, chewing ALOUETTE’s hair out of boredom.
I’ll accept the invite. I want to be able to protect my home island like my mom did years ago. I want to become powerful enough to defeat Rumpel.
AMELIA smiles, taking a sip of tea.
I am happy to hear that. Also, what kind of tea is this? I like it.
It’s dragon leaf tea.
We skip ahead to June 28. ALOUETTE is standing on the docks of Fairytale Island with PEARL on her shoulder, excited to go on a new adventure. She watches the ferry crew load her luggage onto the boat.
SABRINA approaches her daughter with a leather bag.
Give this to Amelia when you reach the camp, okay? It’s dragon leaf tea, so be careful with it. Okay?
ALOUETTE takes the bag from her mother.
Of course I will. Amelia’s going to love your gift so much. I can already see her face of happiness.
The CAPTAIN of the ferry grabs a megaphone to make an announcement.
Attention passengers boarding the ferry to Camp Bravery! We will be leaving soon, so please start boarding the boat.
SABRINA takes a look at her daughter one last time.
You have fun, my dear witchlet. Make new friends, learn new spells. Go make me proud, dear. And remember to write, too.
ALOUETTE nods, waving goodbye to her mother before turning away to board the boat. PEARL waves goodbye to SABRINA as they head into their new journey. There would be new friends, new opportunities, and most importantly, new lessons and skills awaiting the young witch.
And in three years’ time, a calamity to answer. But that’s another story…
And with that, The Witch’s Heart is complete. But that does not mean Alouette’s story is over.
If you want to continue following her journey, then check out Storm’s Calamity, my other fanfiction on Tumblr and Quotev, where things are crazier than what Rumpel has managed to cause so far.
And keep an eye out on the PHB as well, since I have plans to write another short fanfiction series exploring the origins of another character from Storm’s Calamity.
Thanks for reading The Witch’s Heart! I will see you later.
