Dr. Hare in Roblox: City Slam Survival ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Hey Poptropicans and Robloxians!

Poptropica’s spin-off Roblox games studio, Suit Up Games, just dropped a new Roblox game: City Slam Survival. Alas, it has nothing to do with Poptropica, save for one freebie you can get: a cubic Dr. Hare pet.

To get this pink bunny block following you around on Roblox, click on the backpack button inside the game and go to Pets. From there, enter the promo code as shown on a Home Island billboard โ€” HareDoc (case sensitive, so only capitalize the H and D) โ€” to get your li’l Dr. Hare. ๐Ÿฐ

As an ad for Lunchables 100% Juice, City Slam Survival is seeing much more impressive stats (25K+ visits so far) than Poptropica’s previous Roblox releases. The game’s premise is simple: smash to collect, collect to build, and build to survive. It’s quite the swerve from typical Pop…


While Dr. Hare is out getting his brand deal on another platform, another character isn’t so lucky. PHC user Fearless Star noticed that in the current PoptropiCon Island, Ep. 2, a poster was quietly removed.

The banner in the in-game convention center featured a superhero called “Proto-13” who resembled the manga character Astro Boy. We guess it might have been taken down due to copyright concerns, despite all the parodies on the island. Welp, RIP Proto-13 ๐Ÿ™


Despite the loss of one art piece, there’s plenty more to be admired on Poptropica’s Instagram stories. Here are their latest fan art features:

Don’t forget, the Holly Jolly Holiday Design Contest is open until November 16! Try your hand at designing the next batch of member gifts for winter โ€” you might win your own idea made into the game. ๐ŸŽ„

Reign of Omegon with Gains of Neon

Pop drop alert: PoptropiCon Island, Ep. 3: Reign of Omegon has been re-released for members on desktop and mobile! ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿค–

With that, the PoptropiCon trilogy is once again complete (though it already is on Steam and Flashpoint). Once you’ve made your way inside the convention and uncovered a top-secret costume design, Episode 3 takes you to the final boss: the unexpected rise of a robot ruler.

If you’ll be visiting the depths of Omegon’s terrors, be sure to keep our PoptropiCon Island Guide near! No word yet on when it will officially re-release for non-members, but if we’re guessing from past patterns, it could be several months โ€” or even a year. Hopefully sooner, though.

The latest converted episode comes just after an announcement from the Pop Creators less than two weeks ago on the official blog, and a day after another brief appearance in our fan-run Discord server, the PHC. Poptropica didn’t stop to chat, but fans were quick to follow up with an emoji petition for bringing back the classic Astro-Knights Island. ๐Ÿš€


The Pop Creators’ Blog also brings news of a shop update featuring hoodies galore for the season of fall, as well as a new fanfic from guest writer Dizzy Feather. Check out the full shop stock as well as the prologue to The Adventures of Shy Owl on the official blog! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฆ‰


The start of a new month also means new member gifts! The latest batch for privileged players features a Neon Bike, Neon Leather Jacket, and Neon Helmet. Ride with style! โœจ

However, other expected monthly deliveries have yet to arrive with any mention โ€” namely the Baron’s airship along with the costume contest winner. Does the Baron’s unexplained absence last month have anything to do with it?

One more thing: September isn’t just any month, it’s Poptropica’s birthday month! Are there surprises in store? We’ll have to see… ๐Ÿ‘€


Anyway, enjoy the latest batch of Poptropica’s Instagram stories, filled with lots of fantastic villain-inspired fan art โ€” including an Astro-Knights animation and dancing to various Pop soundtracks! ๐Ÿ•บ

Keep on poppin’ on!

PoptropiCon Ep. 3 to return next month ๐Ÿค–

Wicked Cool News alert: PoptropiCon Island, Episode 3: Reign of Omegon returns to the map next month, completing the saga! โšก๏ธ

The news comes as Ep. 2: Spoiler Alert was re-released to all players two months ago, giving everyone a chance to explore the epic Poptropica convention and uncover the twist behind the Omegon costume contest.

Download extras including this screensaver from our PoptropiCon Island Guide!

There’s no mention yet about who will be granted access, but if the recent past is an indicator, the episode will probably release for members only first โ€” and hopefully for all eventually.

However, all episodes of PoptropiCon are currently playable in Poptropica’s paid Steam bundle, which also comes with many other newer classic islands. Read our Steam review here!


Onto another villain, Poptropica on Twitter recently put out a Pop poll about Dr. Hare’s species. As lore would have it, perhaps it’s both: Dr. Hare was a scientist who fused into his current form of evil genius rabbit when an experiment on a bunny rabbit went wrong. ๐Ÿฐ

Either way, he’s a longtime beloved icon in the fandom! Check out this fun marker drawing Pop recently retweeted from fan artist @loudcrab:

Stay tuned with us for the re-release of PoptropiCon’s conclusion for Haxe Poptropica, and keep on poppin’ on! ๐Ÿ’ซ

PoptropiCon Island

All come through for PoptropiCon 2! ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽˆ

Poptropica’s finally played their cards right, and as promised, another episode is now available for all! ๐Ÿ––

Head to the map to access the reopened PoptropiCon, Ep. 2: Spoiler Alert. If you need pointers in moseying round the convention hall and dunking on gamers, we gotchu with our PoptropiCon Island Guide.

For a head start on the third and final episode, you can also find the full PoptropiCon Island and more through purchasing the official Poptropica on Steam. Or you can also access it for free with AS3 Flashpoint, but this latter unofficial version may be buggier.

Anyway, it’s great that non-members can now continue this classic after months of waiting. May the Mighty Action Force be with you!

PoptropiCon 2 this week, and Steam speak

Hey Poptropicans, we’re gathering steam on some Pop drops! ๐Ÿ’จ

The doors to PoptropiCon, Episode 2: Spoiler Alert will be opening to all this Wed, June 15. ๐Ÿšจ Get ready for cosplays, card games, and chaos!

It’s been over four months since this installment re-released on Haxe for members, and restless players have been petitioning for the paywall to come down ever since. It’s great to see the episode open back up for everyone, and hopefully this indicates more re-openings for other locked segments of episodic islands as well. Time will tell!

By the way, enjoy the PoptropiCon poster above? We’ve been working hard to include images of old island extras in our Island Guides, particularly as links have broken from Pop’s website in recent years. Check out our various guides for desktop wallpapers and more! ๐Ÿ–ผ


In other news, guest writer Invisible Ring has returned to the Pop Creators’ Blog with commentary on the recent Steam release. She observes how the discontent around the game’s pricing reminds her of her fan movie Battle Morale and how the growth of Pop’s mobile app over the years could indicate more classics might also appear on Steam.

Alongside her usual optimism, however, she also calls out the Creators for not having brought back Monkey Wrench yet (a promise they made over a year ago) and seeming potentially “desperate” for not making the Steam bundle free โ€” though she ties that into her hopes for more islands on the Steam game, which she has not purchased.

If you’re wondering whether the bundle is worth it, check out our review of Poptropica on Steam! And with that, see you in the next one. โœŒ๏ธ
