New Islands

Brand New Tutorial Island!

Update: For our official walkthrough page for this island, see our Hub Island Guide!

Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here with the details of a new island!

If you checked out today’s Timmy Failure code post, you may have read about a mysterious blank medallion entitled “Hub Island” spotted by our very own Slanted Fish. A little while after the post released, I decided to go check the medallion list again and saw an updated medallion!

HubIslandTutorialI immediately went to the map and spotted this new island…


As it turns out, it’s almost exactly like the Tutorial Island on the Poptropica mobile app, and now it’s here on the online version! I dropped into the island to find myself with this explorer:


I soon went exploring around the island to find multiple different buildings. The first building shown here is the Shop. If you decided to enter in, it brings you to the Poptropica Store.

The second building shown here is the Arcade. Entering it brings you to the Pathfinders tribe common room, no matter which tribe you’re in.

The final building shown is the New You building. Inside, you can alter your appearance!

You can pull the lever (shown in the picture on the right) and the curtain on the top will drop down to allow you to customize with endless costumes. If you click the curtain (shown in the picture on the left) you can use a Colorizer, which allows you to change your skin and hair colors.

If you exit the New You building and go to the left, you visit the tutorial portion of the island. You will first see the platform below:


With a little exploring you will come upon this woman missing her lucky wrench.


Simply look up on a nearby tree to find the Wrench and give it to her.


She then offers to show you how to customize (because it is a tutorial island). If you continue left into a new room, and then all the way to the left of that room, you’ll see the explorer once again. He’ll mention that he wants to give you something but he can’t seem to find it.

This, of course, is the medallion. You can then go around the two areas in search for each of the parts. There are eight in total and they’re pretty easy to spot – they’re the glowing yellow chunks lying around.

Once you find all of these pieces, return back to the original location of the explorer, and he’ll award you with the Tutorial Island Medallion (and 150 credits!).

So, that’s an overview of the new Tutorial Island! Since you get 150 credits for completing this island, be sure to complete the island for a little more change to spend in the Poptropica Store. Plus, I feel like if I was a new player, this island would be quite helpful. 😀

So, what do you think about this tutorial island? Comment below!

  1. Haha! This is exciting xD The only problem I see with this is that it’s on the last page of the map (is it?) and new players might still start with their first islands being Early Poptropica. Or maybe new players automatically fall onto this new island when they first enter Poptropica? Who knows? I might even create an unsaved account just to find out xD Also, a colourizer? o.O

  2. This is the same as the tutorial island home page thingy on the app (which they need to hurry and make a kindle fire version)!

  3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, oh wait. It isn’t Christmas yet. Anyways, it’s one of the most unexpected updates of Poptropica— we had no news that it was coming!

  4. Oddly enough, this island has three names. Tutorial Island because that’s what it’s called on the app (and the image on the medallion), Home Island according to the on the official map, and Hub Island when you hover over it in your medallion collection. 😛

  5. Well, I wasted 250 whole credits over a colorizer which is for FREE on Home Island! 😡 Well, the advantage is that you don’t quite need to visit the island every now and then just to colorize your skin/hair when you’ve just got it in your inventory! :mrgreen: But seriously, I need my 250 credits back 😡

    1. well, when i leave the island its like the colorizers effects wore off so i guess its good to have one that will effect your color and not wear off, huh?

      1. I tried it, and yes, the effects DID wear off. My hair was usual black rather than blonde. It might either be a glitch or just a demo made by the creators to let new players understand how the colorizer works! 😕 Though I do agree with your point.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
