You who are loyal readers of the blog have probably been with Poptropica for some time, but for others in 2019, Poptropica was a childhood pastime they’ve only recently rediscovered. In fact, this demographic has even been inspired to create videos highlighting their rediscovery experience!
Take Diamondbolt, for example—he’s a YouTuber who makes videos about video games and cartoons, and in his rediscovery video, he talks about how, as a child, Poptropica stood out as one of the best games. Watch him play through 24 Carrot, Super Power, and Reality TV Island with the commentary of someone who’s been able to appreciate Poptropica’s wit over time:
Another rediscovery video comes from JWhisp, a YouTuber who mostly plays Minecraft. Unlike Diamondbolt, who tried to create the ugliest character he could, JWhisp aims to make a “pretty hot-looking character.” With that setup, he heads into the Arcade and tries out some of the newer games, Poptastic and Crash-n-Bash, before making his way to Monkey Wrench Island. Watch him play and try to figure things out:
There are plenty more rediscovery videos to be found on YouTube—if you’re interested, just search “Poptropica” with more recent time filters (uploaded within a week, for example).
