Hey Poptropicans, lots of news incoming! We’ve got an island-sized treat for non-members, credit crazes, another ad game, and that’s not even all of it—but more for another post. Let’s POP into this one!
First up, Time Tangled Island is now available for all players! 🎉🕰 Although it has been free for most of Pop’s history, it was locked behind the paywall since it was first ported over to Haxe last September. Guess it was only a matter of time. (Thanks to Neat Peanut for the tip!)
One downside: it’s been reported on the PHC that playing through islands no longer awards credits. But fear not, the Poptropica economy finds other ways to function…
As an acceleration of the daily login credit rewards, Poptropica is launching a credit craze campaign where, over the next 10 days, if you login to Pop every day, you’ll automatically receive a bonus 5,000 credits on July 31, good for spending sprees in the game’s various stores.
The campaign began Wednesday, July 21, so if you didn’t miss that day, you can keep your streak going till Friday, July 30 for your shot at the big prize! After all, the Creators make it sound so appealing with this absolutely golden quote from their post:
What comes to mind when you think of your favorite four letter F word? If you’re already thinking “FREE,” you’ve got the right idea!Poptropica Creators’ Blog
If you know, you know. 👀
Like the sketch? There’s always more on Instagram, so let’s round off this post with the latest fan art features on the Creators’ story:
That’s a wrap for this post, but there’s more on the horizon! Keep on popping on, Poptropicans, and see you in the next one. ✌️

This is so cool! I’m so excited for the challenge!
Ok now I’m mad at poptropica.
They removed getting credits from the islands. WHY!!! I CAN’T LOG IN EVERY SINGLE DAY
LIKE I HAVE HOMEWORK, EXTRA CURRICULAR CLASSES AND MUCH MORE
SO WHY. Now I’ll not even bother playing islands I’ve already done..
And imagine if you’re about to finish seven days and when you login pn the seventh day you get the black screen 😐
I’m stressing with writing for the PCB, finishing up a website I have to code for a class I’m taking, and drawing fan art and requests… I sometime just want to play Poptopica to chill but there NOTHING to do. So watching Naruto and drawing has taken over my chill time….😐
are you able to log in on all the days except the seventh day, or have you been getting black screen every day when you log in?
I never counted the days but i don’t get the black screen every day.
https://www.poptropica.com/contact/contact-players.html did u try contacting pop about the black screen problem
I hate the new update 😑
I was thinking, Poptropica is making mini-quests and ad islands more than they bring back what we want, right? Which means that’s what our membership money goes into. And those get old
after a while. Since they get boring so quickly, Poptropica is kinda wasting our money.
As the ad sales lady said on Mocktropica, “It’s your money. You can do what you want with it.” What we want is old islands back, so wouldn’t it make more sense for the creators to put our money into bringing back old islands?
I’ve been sending in many emails and messages to the creators about this, but they don’t seem to listen.
I think that the only way to convince the creators to use our money on what we want is to stop paying for memberships.
I don’t want to make too big of a deal out of it, and I certainly don’t want to start a riot or anything, but it kind of makes sense. If the creators don’t use our money on the things we want, and instead uses it on things that are only good for a day or so, why should we keep paying?
I have already informed the creators about this, and I have already cancelled my membership, and I told them that I, and hopefully others, won’t pay for memberships until they announce on their blog that they will from now on use our money on what we want.
Some people may think that this is going a bit too far, but we’ve been going through with this for years. I think it’s time to take action and do something. If these are the lengths we need to take, so be it. This may be the only way to get their attention, so please help.
Thank you so much for understanding. You don’t have to if you don’t want to; I’m just trying to do my part in bringing Poptropica back to life.
To be fair, ad games/“islands” are generating money for Poptropica. Ads and memberships are their main sources of revenue. People are free to choose whether or not they want to pay for something like a Poptropica membership, but if we want Poptropica to survive, it does need financial resources like any other business. Of course, whether or not our membership dollars are supporting the creation/maintenance of the game we want to play (i.e. one with real story-driven islands) is another consideration.
I kind of agree. I don’t use membership And I’m glad because there’s hardly sometime to play Poptropica and since I’ve done almost everything available right now. I just join when there is a costume update
Sweet lemon looks good! I think it could be a costume 🤔
I finished time tangled yesterday it took long but it is fun I’ve been looking forward to another island to play because I’ve finished all the islands on the map
