The gift of love (and the Snowpocalypse)

Hello, you lovely Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin here with a special Valentine’s-themed Poptropica update!

Poptropica has been showing their love for players all week. First, they gave everyone digital stickers and printable valentines. Then, they gave members exclusive February gifts. Now, Valentine’s Day is here, and Poptropica has more love-themed goodies for us!

There are three Valentine’s-themed prizes “hidden” on Home Island. I mean hidden loosely since they aren’t really hidden per se—in fact, they’re  kinda out in the open.

First, go to the roof of the “New You” shop, and grab the Cupid Bow and Arrow. With the bow, you’ll be able to shoot a heart-shaped arrow with a press of the space bar.

Next, run all the way to the left and jump up to the platform above. You can collect the Valentine’s Shades, a pair of heart-shaped, rose-tinted sunglasses.

Finally, run to the right where the rocket is located. Jump to the large “Blast-Off Arcade” sign and pick up a red heart which will give you the Crushing Power.

Unlike true love, this giveaway won’t last for eternity, so act fast and grab these prizes while you still can!


In other news, the oh snow wonderful minigame Snowpocalypse is back! You will find the game in an igloo on Home Island. Now you can continue showing villains who’s boss in an epic snowball fight—the most renowned type of fight. Go out and crush them—and we don’t mean the lovey kind.

That should be all of the news for today. We here at the Poptropica Help Blog wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

The Snowpocalypse is upon us!

Hey Poptropicans, it’s Slanted Fish, live with the weather report. It looks like today’s forecast is a full-on snowpocalypse! Winter isn’t over just yet – over at Poptropica HQ in Boston, the temperature is around 0 Celsius (30s in Fahrenheit). Chilly!

UPDATE: There is now an igloo on Home Island for the Snowpocalypse game. Simply travel over to the right, past the photo booth, until you reach it!

If you head on over to Home Island, where it’s still snowing, there’s an all-new game to play called Snowpocalypse! To find it, go left to where the billboard is, and click on the third dot to bring up the Snowpocalypse board, then click on it to bring up the game.

From there, click on the snowball to go through the instructions and start playing. The basic idea is to throw snowballs at the bad guys (who will pop up from the snow forts) by clicking on them, taking them down before they pelt you. If you’re hit 5 times, it’s game over! Your bucket has 3 snowballs in it at a time, so remember to reload (by clicking it).

And with that, let the games begin! You’ll encounter villains (and other not-so-villain characters, which you still want to aim at) like Binary Bard, Princess Elyana, Zeus, the Big Blue Zomberry, Captain Crawfish, and more. As your score gets higher, you may even see police officers patrolling the front of the battle lines. The flags in front of your fort indicate how many lives you have left.

The Poptropica Creators even put out a video guide for how to play Snowpocalypse, which you can check out here:

Pretty straightforward and fun! It’s cool (literally) to have a fun new feature on Poptropica as we wait for Worlds to debut this spring –  maybe this is a subtle reminder that it’s still winter, but we sure do have something to look forward to this spring!

This might be one of the last things added to the current Poptropica – they don’t call it an apocalypse for nothing, right? 😉 However, the Creators do also plan to add something in April for Wimpy Kid Month:

In any case, the Creators want to share pictures of your high scores on social media! To participate, just take a screenshot of your high score and share it on social media to Poptropica at their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Be sure to tag them, and they’ll share your pic!

Plus, let us know in the comments what your high score is and what you think of this apocalyptic new game!

❄️ Stay warm, and stay popping, Poptropicans! ❄️
