Heyo Hoptropicans! We’ve got a lot of leaping to do today!
Two limited edition games have popped up on the map. The first one is familiar: hello Hoptropica! In this game, pick a furry doctor to play as, then hop your way through the platforms, careful not to fall. 🦫🐰
Everything you need to know is in our Hoptropica Guide! ⭐️ Just replace stars with cakes, as this is the birthday edition, which first appeared for Pop’s 14th birthday last September. We’re not sure whose birthday they’re celebrating this time, but we’d like to believe it’s the PHB’s, as our blog birthday is coming up in July. 🍰
You’ll also get 14 credits for each play! Whether you’re Team Beev or Team Hare, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity while you can.
There’s more jumping to do over at the new Paws of Fury minigame! 🐶 You can find the ad building for the upcoming movie on Fairytale Island or directly on the map. Anyone getting Red Dragon Island vibes? Anyway, enter and talk to Hank the dog to begin the obstacle course.
With just two minutes to make your way up to the top, it’s short and sweet. For your efforts, you’ll win a Hank Outfit and Emiko Follower, with space bar actions to swing their samurai swords. ⚔️
And here are the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories, both honoring villains of old. Click the links for the original posts!
Hello, everyone! The Creators gave us a lot of updates over the past few days. We’re seeing fashion fur-ward outfits, hip-hoppin’ story features, and blogging opportunities for all ages. Let’s check them out!
Amelia just stocked Adventure Outfitters with some new items for both players and pets! The latest rotation gives us Poptropicans the 90’s Vertical outfit, a retro style perfect for going back to school or hanging out at the mall. Everyone can rock this colorful look for a price of 200credits.
While we Poptropicans have one new outfit this week, our four-legged friends can rock five new petcostumes! All players can dress their pets with the Zebra Bucket, Mighty Hero, and Princess Dress. On the other paw, members can buy the Leopard Growl and Princess Hat. Whether member or not, all of these items cost 75 credits. Anything for our cute little critters! 😺🐶❤️
At the end of the story, the Creators added a small Hoptropica-themed poll asking fans to vote for their favorite doctor. Looking at the results, it seems that Mocktropica meme Dr. Beev can’t outclass the classic Dr. Hare. Speaking of Hoptropica, you can still play the birthday edition of this 8-bit platformer until September 30! Hop to the top of the high score list and wish a hoppy 14th birthday to Poptropica! 🥳🐇🦫
Are you a Poptropica fan who wants to share that love with fellow fans, but writing for the PHB isn’t glamorous enough for you? You’re in luck because the Creators’ Blog put out a new call for guest writers! Fans who are 13 years or older can head to Pop’s submissions page and answer what they want to write about and why they would make a great contribution to the Creators’ Blog. They also need to include their own or their parent’s email address so the Creators can contact them.
One exciting development is that fans 12 and under can now submit guest posts, although the submission process is different for them. Younger writers can only submit their finalized guest posts through the submissions page, and they can’t include any identifying information or email addresses in their message to the Creators. Due to this, they won’t have direct contact with the Creators.
Speaking of guest writing, you can still submit a guest post to us here at the Poptropica Help Blog. While it’s not as fancy as getting featured on the Creators’ Blog, you can also reach tons of fellow Poptropicans! Check out our Write for the PHB page for more details!
What do you think of the new outfits? Who’s your Hoptropica main: Dr. Hare or Dr. Beev? Do you plan on writing a guest post for the Creators’ Blog?
Good day Poptropicans! I’ve got some uplifting news that’ll make you jump for joy! So without further ado, let’s hop to it, shall we?
Poptropica is celebrating its 14th birthday all month long, and with celebrations come surprises. Nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised to see the return of the colorful, arcade-style minigame, Hoptropica!
Hoptropica first hopped onto the scene for a limited time back in December of 2020, and now it’s back and birthday-ified for players to relive or play for the first time! Either way, this version is still out for only a LIMITED TIME so hop now or forever hold your piece… of cake. 🍰
Last week, the Pop Creators hinted at minigame re-releases, free store items, and easy opportunities to earn credits — I just didn’t know we would be getting all at once! Right now, you’ll win14 credits (for Poptropica’s 14th birthday) every time you play Hoptropica!
But wait, there’s more. After you hop, pop into the store and acquire your FREE birthday Bit-Beev and Bit-Hare followers!
I personally am really hyped to see Hoptropica return — and have the swag to show for it. Thanks to the Pop Creators’ gift card to the PHB, Slanted Fish even hooked me up (no pun intended) with the 8-bit Hare & Beev stickers from Poptropica’s merch store.
That’s all from me. Be sure to hop to celebrate Pop and take advantage of the bound-iful rewards available! I’ll see you next time, this Boa’s gotta bounce!
Good day Poptropicans! Hope you’re staying safe and cozy as the holiday season arrives. Speaking of arrivals, the retro-style minigame event we’ve been waiting for is here, and it’s finally got a name: Hoptropica!
Hoptropica leaps onto the first page of the island map and is free for all to play. But it’s only here for a limited time, so you’d better hop to it!
As you can see on the title screen above, the first step is to choose your furry doctor: classic Dr. Hare or—what’s this?—the delightful Dr. Beev is here too as a playable character. What a welcomed surprise! Once you have selected your character, it’s time to hop into the game.
The game’s premise and controls are pretty simple: just click above your character in the direction you want to hop (or use the left and right arrow keys), and try to go as high as you can before time runs out!
Of course, simple doesn’t always mean easy. Along the way, you’ll encounter both tricky platforms and helpful items. Here’s a guide:
Helpful items to pick up
🕐 Clock – Grants additional time
⭐️ Star – Grants even more time! (more than the clock)
Know your platforms
Pink/Green – Disappears and reappears (time your jumps!)
Ridged – Think fast, this platform falls if you stand on it for too long!
Clear – Can’t jump on this platform, it’s technically invisible
Spiked – Avoid jumping on this platform or you’ll get spiked!
Turn up the volume for a jaunty tune as you hop through the colorful pixel heavens! Hoptropica is visually appealing, fairly addictive, and fun to play, so enjoy it while it’s here. And if you’re really good, you might want to post your high score on social media with the hashtag #hoptropica for a chance to be featured by the Poptropica Creators!
Can’t get enough 8-bit Beev and Hare? The Creators also announced brand new stickers on their Zazzle merch store! Joining the handful of stickers from before are our new 8-bit buddies as well as the icons of islands already ported to Haxe, plus fan favorite Monster Carnival and under-the-radar Mission Atlantis.
