Reality TV Island, Web Development

Yaay. Whoohoo. RTV is here…

Well, guys, today is the big, big day. It’s…

DECEMBER 12 21, 2012

Whoops, sorry. Wrong date. It’s…



…Um, that was awkward. *ahem* Moving on…It’s actually…

MARCH 24, 2010!!

On this magical and momentous day, us Poptropicans without membership, get to access the greatest and latest:


But to be honest, I don’t feel all that cheery. Having to wait so long, and miss out is kinda sapping all the fun out of playing a new island. Which is another reason this whole Membership thing sucks. I mean, I understand the Creators need cha-chingy and all, but at least they could still have Early Access Passes…

Anyway, see you guys on RTV!…if I ever get around to playing it. (BOO HOMEWORK…oh and parents xD JK) Click the links below for a TV Island walkthrough guide written by Mega Boy, the island map, or our information page for RTV.

Here’s the Creators blog post about it. A new mini-game challenge (Hang Glider) was also added to the island in celebration for today. Apparently, they share none of my unhappiness on what would otherwise be an awesome day:

The wait is now over! Reality TV Island is now available to everyone! Join the other contestants in the various challenges to determine who will win all of the fame and glory! Now with an all new game! Grab your hang gliders and get ready for some soaring fun!


OK, I see nothing in there about membership being destroyed. *reads again* Nope, I didn’t miss anything. Looks like it’s gonna take a personal visit before Mr. Leary gets it: I HATE MEMBERSHIP. In fact, Mr.Leary, I’ll give you a head start. Start stocking up on the bodyguards.

Cause I’m coming for you.
Andย  now, on a completely unrelated note: Sometimes, I scare myself.

Right…um….I’m just gonna walk off of the stage right he– AAHHHHHH!!! OOWWWW!!! CURSES WHO MOVED THE DOGGONE STAIRS!!! OH MY SPLEEN!!! OHH THE PAIN!!!

  1. I’ve been on it five seasons and haven’t won XD but once I was doing the postcard (ma second time, it is possible!) and there was lightning in the background! Creepy!

    1. yeah, ive seen the lightning too. It happens when you see a person on any television holding a lightning staff. Now that’s what i call REALITY tv.

    1. Heh heh. Coderkid is SOOO funny. Awkward moments with Coderkid.

      Oh, and to those who said RTV was easy, it totally was NOT easy .

      1. Yeah, it was actually really hard… around the same level as super power, spy, big nate and a little easier than counterfeit ๐Ÿ™‚ it was the ‘Pretty hard, but not too hard’ level. But it was fun, A good challenge. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I absolutely hate the water challange wit the wart hog thingy i can never get any water in there!!! but i never get eliminated on that one!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Yay! wow I can finally go on RTV with my account! Yahoo! Oh, I just noticed, Hippie Man is on the post, I hope he’s in there! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m gonna be on TV! ๐Ÿ˜›


      1. *gets jet pack and zooms to the front* ๐Ÿ˜› *waves as goes over* Hey, Hijuyo! Hey Xarr! See you there! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. randomly teleports. 10 minutes later.. hi Hijuyo! hi Xarr! what took you so long? i just defeted da show ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOOK! PRETYYYY SHINYYY…..

      1. *pulls on jet pack and zooms up* HI HIJUYO! HEY XARR! WHAT’S—AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! LOOK OUT!!!!!!! *crashes into Hijuyo and Xarr when jet pack suddenly dies*

  3. Finished it with both of my accounts,but i was kinda dissapointed.I wanted a bigger quest,but i luv the fact that u can go and compete over and over againg even when u finish the island.

    1. Yea it seemed quick, Astro-Kinghts and Counterfiet took me like an hour but this took me like 15-20 minutes!

      1. It wasn’t as big as I thought… The challenges were kinda tough to beat on my first try, but after I won, they seemed to get easier.

  4. We’ve already finished it. The Rock Pushing Contest is SUPER easy and we ALWAYS win it. ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. Wasn’t the best island, it was too easy and I finished in half an hour… without any help. I won the first season I tried, but it wasn’t worth all that waiting.

    1. I SOOOO agree. The first time i played i won, and it took me 20 minutes compared to astro or counterfiet which took me like 50 with help. I was disapointed with how easy and un-great it was. It was like, what, a one year wait, you think they could have don greater things there

  6. And now for…awkward moments with Giant Hawk: So true that it’s easy, fun, easy, easy, TOO EASY, did I say easy yet? xD I still think it’s fun playing the seasons all over again.

    1. yeah,i was kinda dissapointed.:(
      RTV island took a lot of time for Poptropica to prepare.Anyway,i think Mythology island will be the best ever created in Poptropica:)

      1. This is probaby just me, but I think that Mythology Island will be HARD. RTV WAS pretty easy. once you know how to do all the games, and you practice them over and over, it’s pretty easy!

    2. It’s not easy for me……
      The only time i got close to winning it was…..GEYSER GUESS!
      “Tonights challange:Happy Sword v.s.
      Dr.Hare!Who will win?”the announcer probbably said.
      “It’s on!”I exclaimed
      “…..”said Hare
      Then,i blew up and angrily shot an arrow somewhere.I’m still angry and i will have my vengance,for nobody-not even that cursed geyser will blow me up and not expect to be blown up,in turn.

      Satuardy,1:00 p.m.
      native islaner @ gameshow host:”isn’t that geyser blowing up?”
      gameshow host @ islander:”Yeah,so?”

  7. TBH, I was expecting more not just a bunch of games that are just annoying. It’s not as good as the others and it wasn’t worth the wait.

  8. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I have a membership and RTV isn’t all that fun.I mean it’s good, it’s just not a Astro Knights good.

    1. the person cathy codex always placed her vote on me. the only time she didnt is when i won… so i voted her off!!!yay!!!!

      1. I’ve only seen Dr. Hare on once. Busy Bob is TERRIBLE at the turtle-shell throw game! He scored a big “0” twice when we played!! It’s fun to vote him off. :p

  9. rtv is way to easy, i personally think that if it was based on like that survivor show they could have or should have put in some backround stuff like alliances or other stuff like that

  10. Pop is down again…they already released RTV…what could it be? MYTHOLOGY ISLAND, perhaps? Oh, and cool post! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hijuyo: Not necessarily. Mythology Island may not come as quickly as we think. ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. Doesnt the kid next to Tv World look like hades a bit? Is he in a costume? This reminds me of the gladiator that used to be on Shark Tooth!

    Hijuyo: It’s not really that much like Hades’ costume. ๐Ÿ˜

    1. What I mean is that his eyes, skin, and lines under his eyes match Hades’s.

      Hijuyo: Just because some of his facial features match doesn’t necessarily link them together. ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Motion, if you were intending to include a doomsday joke in there, at least get the date right. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Oh yeah lol i never noticed he switched 21 for 12! ๐Ÿ˜›

      lol love that part of this post post when it said YA BIRTHDAY WERE GONNA PARTAY LIKE ITS YA BIRTHDAY ๐Ÿ˜†

  13. Think RTV as a mini-quest…which gives you 100 credits =D

    Hijuyo: RTV Island is an actual full quest, which is why it awards 100 credits for completion. It’s even a whole island on the map and you can win an island medallion from it. Mini-quests only give 50 creds. ๐Ÿ˜

    1. i think he was trying to help those of us who didnt like it feel better. imagine that it was just a mini-quest, but you 100 creds out of it!

    2. I agree.RTV was TOO short.Compared to Early Pop, RTV was a 1/100 of that.Oh well, give what the people want, I suppose. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  14. To Mega Boy — Go Mega Boy! Good Job with the guide!

    To everyone that says RTV is easy. I don’t know how many times they voted me off and I don’t know how times I stepped it to the helicopter! I figured 5 hours of on and off playing?? And I am above the age of 12 years of age.

  15. LOL, coderkid. Love your sense of humor. You gave me first laugh of the day.

    About RTV:
    Well, part of me likes it since you can play it over and over, but lots why I don’t. First, where’s the Hippie Man? He’s never there! Second, IT’S SO SHORT! Play a few, 100 credits. Boom. Like that. Not much challenge. The games aren’t real hard. And the fact that they made this for 2 years and hardly impresses us. Quality, quality, quality…

    -Happy Storm

  16. This is so weird… has this happend to any of you guys? I was standing in the motel office, everything was as usual, when suddenly, everything grew dark. Then lightning came and struck me, and it continued to strike me! Then, after about about 30 seconds, it stopped, and it became light again and I was standing there wondering what the heck happend. Has that happend to any of you guys?? And if it has, what was it all about???

    Hijuyo: Lightning strikes when lightning appears on any one of the TV screens around Reality TV Island. ๐Ÿ˜

  17. Yeah, I was pretty disappointed with RTV.
    I was hoping it would be more… challenging.
    I finished within the day.
    Not too fun. :/

  18. Coder, you and Smockers make some of the funniest posts. :P. Also, *looks at Creators severely* I’d feel that we should be allowed to buy early passes with credits.

  19. I already finished it! The hardest challenge is ‘Balanced Diet’! Shuffleboard is sooooooooooo easy!

    1. Balanced Diet is REALLY hard. I’ve never won. Easiest is DEFINATELY the rock-pushing! Always win that one. Just click as fast as you can on the screen. Easy! ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. I waited soooo long for this island and all that the creators could come up with was THIS? It only took me like 15 minutes,compared to the whole year (almost) i waited for it!!! Atleast i got 100 full credits, instead of 50, since it really felt like i should have only gotten 50. Haunted House was as hard as RTV Island was. aaah, well. C’ est la vie.

    1. Actually, I think that Haunted House was HARDER than RTV. ๐Ÿ˜† It was more confusing. At least you know what to do on RTV, it’s just hard to beat all the games.

  21. RTV was actually very dissapointing. We waited so long, an entire year, and the island seemed more like a mini-quest. It took me about 15 minutes to finish, which wasn’t as long as it took me to complete the Halloween mini-quest. There wasn’t really anywhere for your Poptropican to go, only one street and the cluster of boring mini-games. I expected an extremely epic island, especially after a whole year in the making, but I was not happy with the result. This island had little to no substance and was way too easy. Here’s hoping the next islands better….. :`(

    1. Yay! I love Reality TV!
      Now do the Harlem Shake.
      *music comes on, all contestants dance*

  22. You guys are funny. Thanks for the info. I’m not all worked up either…. IDK why xD.

  23. theres a glitch where if you jump on top of the helecopter blades, (in the middle) it does a really cool emoticon and spins and shakes around. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I don’t think it’s a glitch, if you were really on there you’d be spinning and I’m sure I’d be crying…and maybe throwing up…

    1. That’s amazing! It’s especially cool when you use the cheat to make the angry emote while you’re spinning. Your head blows off and goes spinning in the air!!!

      1. its also cool if you have the Robin Hood bow. When u press space, the arrow goes to the left and right. ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. Actually, RTV isn’t that great. i have a feeling that it’s just a bunch of games cobbled together to keep us impatient Poptropicans satisfied while they write Mythology Island.

  25. I think RTV is pretty simple yet challenging… Its just a bunch of games, but I keep on gettin voted off! D:

  26. I beat RTV in under an hour…It seemed pretty easy. I did like that you got to choose who to eliminate. But yeah. It seemed like we were waiting forever for this, and now it comes out, and it’s like REALLY easy. I prefer AstroNights, because it is harder, which to me is more fun. I hope Mythology won’t be as easy….

  27. i agree with coderkid. it is awesome, but the whole member thing sucks out the fun like a black hole…

  28. **** Something WEIRD happened while playing the Turtle Shell Toss. I tied with Grandpa Grum, so we kept throwing the coconuts in the turtle shells. Well, the stubborn old man wouldn’t give up and I lost count of all the tie-breakers. Guess what. My points went up to…1,060…!!!!! before old Grandpa FINALLY went for the +10 points and I won! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That’s ridiculous!!! Grandpa Grum SURE is stubborn and did NOT want to be beaten…but I finally did, after I got over 1,000 points. ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. 1,060 wow thats alot … although that is a bit much like the highest one is 20 points that must have taken at least 530 tries

  29. Well look on the bright side. The creators at least are making an effort to keep us poptropicans satisfied. And lame island might mean amazing island next:)

  30. I thought that Reality TV Island would be great but when it was available it was kinda boring because all you had to do is to get your Poptropican to do some challenges and then just vote off someone. That is just so simple isn’t it?

What's popping, Poptropicans?
