Lunar Colony Island

Most Likely To Become Astronauts

Hey, Poptropicans! With the recent release of Lunar Colony, members glued theirselves in front of their computer screen to complete this challenging island. Without a guide in sight, these Poptropicans managed to complete the island and unknowingly became the first ten to beat it!

Lunar Colony Island

When the engines cough, and you blast off: Lunar Colony for members!

Remember to breathe because oxygen may be limited up there, but of course that’s all provided. Lunar Colony Island has been released to paid members of Poptropica, and everyone else can play a demo, but will have to wait three more weeks for their turn for the big adventure on September 6th.

The Poptropica Help Blog is working on a written walkthrough. In the meantime, our Lunar Colony Guide page does have a video from the YouTuber InsidersNetwork and is open for comment discussions where you can help each other out by asking and answering questions.

Have the time of your life in the greatest space journey ever, but come home safely!

Pinocchio on the PHC (another great place to get Poptropica help, by the way), who has already played through the new island twice, tells us that you’ll get to manually drive and land a spaceship, have an encounter with a moon rover, and be able to change your eye color (predicted here) and height from tall and small! There’s a lot to explore, so have fun! 🙂

Lunar Colony Island

Almost Time For Blast Off!

(Oh, the joy of finally beating someone to a post! 😉 )

It’s less than two days away from the launch of Lunar Colony!  This island sounds like it’s going to be pretty cool.  And just cause they’re so nice that way, the Creators wanted to give us a reminder about its launch on the 16th (this Thursday).  As if we could forget.

It’s the final countdown

We are less than two days away from the launch of Lunar Colony! It can’t come soon enough. We think you are really going to like this one.

Lunar Colony will be available this Thursday for Poptropica Members. Don’t forget your space helmet!

Just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s the description from Lunar Colony’s info page:

So, I was looking at some of the pictures on Lunar Colony’s info page, and there was one picture, that when I looked closely at it, had something a little…unusual.

I took a picture and put a red circle around where to look.  You might have to look closely, but see if you can see what I’m talking about.

Did you see it?

That little sign thing that I circled says something like Eye-Color Changing Station.  I’m not sure if that’s exactly what it says, but that’s what it looks like.

So maybe we can change the color of our eyes in this island?  That would be pretty cool.  …Or pretty weird.

What do you think?  Any chance that our Poptropican’s eyes will get some color added to them?  Or do you think that that sign says something else?

Lunar Colony Island, Sneak Peeks

Countdown to the birth of an island!

Excitedly waiting for Lunar Colony? Well, you are in luck! 😀

Lunar Colony will be out on August 16!

Non-members can play on September 6! 😀

(Thanks ND for the pic.)


The Creators also have a post for us! 😀

We’re in the earliest stages of planning a new Island – one that is still still months away from becoming reality. All we’ve got so far is an idea, and the pile of sketches you see above. Hard to believe, but one day this simple black and white schematic will become a full-blown Poptropica Island!

Interesting design! What I see from this is writing on the top saying Video Game. Places we can tell from here are the Wharf, Chinatown, Subway, and Brownstones. There also seems to be a list of items. I see cellphone, wallet, and shopping list. Hmm. What are your ideas on this idea? 😛

EDIT: Fuzzy-B shared his take on the new sneak peek:

The top looks kinda like it says “Video Game Survivalist” which is kinda interesting seeing that Brownstones leads to a bunker. Also the item list looks like: Address and Phone Number, Shopping List, Batteries, Empty Smoothie Cup, Cell Phone, Wallet ID and Subway Pass, Manifest, Car Keys. This seems like big city themed island with a subway and a Chinatown, but the bunker is interesting, I wonder why you would need one. Perhaps this is related to the return of Dr. Hare..?


It’s that time of year again! So I might be inactive for a spell.

Have a great rest of summer! Enjoy it while you can 🙂


Lunar Colony Island, Merchandise

Blasting off with top toy trends!

Excited for the upcoming Lunar Colony Island? The wait won’t be long now, as the Creators have announced that they are putting on the last touches. Just in time with current news, as you may have heard that NASA’s Curiosity rover has landed on Mars. As for the new Poptropica island, members will get to play first with early access.

PHB reader Muddy Axe shared with us this interesting picture from an article about Top Toy Trends of 2012:

Pictured: These goofy Poptropica figurines and plush toys are designed by Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney and each item unlocks extras in a dynamic online island-based gaming world built just for kids.

If you look closely, some of the toys shown are currently not out yet. (Click here for the official Poptropica toys page.) On the right, we see the unreleased keychain plushes of a black-haired boy and ginger-haired girl. Maybe we’ll see them soon.
