24 Carrot Island, Haxe Javascript, Poptropica Store, PoptropiCon Island, Survival Island, Timmy Failure Island

Get equipped with Quippy’s common room stores ūüĎĹ

Hey Poptropicans, have we got a lot to look at this time!

In addition to the monthly rotation of store items, four new shops have popped up around Poptropica, each with their own themed items. Plus, the game’s showing signs of progress on the friends feature, and for the first time in a long time, we even get to see some official concept art. Let’s explore!

First, let’s take a tour of the new shops, which are all located in various common rooms on different islands. These common room stores feature themed items for those islands‚ÄĒsome new, some we’ve seen before. However, these stores are only available in Poptropica’s Haxe Javascript build, and are unlikely to be made for Flash, which will soon be obsolete.

These common room stores are available on four islands so far: 24 Carrot, PoptropiCon: Episode 1, Survival: Episode 1, and Timmy Failure.

Our first stop is the cinema on 24 Carrot Island. You will find Quippy hovering by the entrance. They’re offering Dr. Hare-themed goodies for sale: Hare Hotshot (which was the former BETA Carrotene bonus for members who helped beta-test the sound-updated 24 Carrot Island), Dr. Hare Plush Toy, Light & Shadow Hare*, and the Rabbit Ear Prank*. (* = members only)

While waiting in line to get into PoptropiCon (Episode 1), you can stop by the Facili-Tee store to buy cool costumes such as the Tinfoil Robot and the Supernova (basically recolored from a Tron ad). You can also show your love of Old School Islands by wearing the Lunar Colony Cosplay* and Game Show Cosplay*. Quippy is ready for the convention with their own adorable cardboard cosplay!

While traveling in our blimp, we get caught in a storm and become stranded in the snowy forest of Survival Island (Episode 1). Thankfully, we‚Äôre not alone. A wooden Quippy can be found at the frozen pond under the big tree to the right. They’ll offer feathery friends like the¬†Blue Woodpecker follower¬†and the¬†Owl Head Rider, as well as a¬†Ghillie Suit*¬†and a¬†Frozen Body power*.

Our final stop is Timmy Failure Island. The bad news is that Timmy Failure Island is only available to members. The worse news is that you need to have a membership on an account in Haxe Javascript, as Flash-made accounts are separate from ones made in the newer Haxe build.

If you have an active membership on a Haxe Javascript account, you can access the island and its common room. Though Quippy looks as if they came out of a garbage truck, the store items are anything but trash. We have a¬†Total costume, a¬†Se√Īor Burrito follower, Timmy’s iconic¬†red Scarf*, and a mighty¬†‚ÄúGREATNESS‚ÄĚ banner*.¬†(Strange to list some items as for non-members when the whole island and its store are for members only!)


You can do more than shop in common rooms, of course. The Creators are hard at work implementing the friends feature to the new Poptropica, and new Haxe players now have a fourth dialogue with Amelia when they first land on Home Island: to meet new friends!

In common rooms such as the Blast-off Arcade, you can befriend other players by selecting ‚ÄúWant to be friends?‚ÄĚ from the chat menu. If they say yes, you’ll even get a pop-up message saying the friend was added successfully! (It might also say the user isn’t registered, if that’s the case.)

Despite this, the player profile and friends page aren’t ready just yet, so there’s no way to view your friends on Haxe at the moment. But the signs are there that this popular feature is being worked on!


Over on the Creators’ Blog, the Creators shared an inside look on how they created the adorable Quippy. Early concepts show the artists figuring out how to show players the common room stores ‚ÄĒ did they want a droid, a kiosk, or something else? Once they settled on a droid, they chose some of their favorite designs and explored them further…

All this hard work and creativity culminated into one of the most unique and adorable faces in Poptropica. A friendly droid equipped with a luminous smile and a keen fashion sense. The magnificent Quippy.

The Creators ended their post with a word of encouragement for budding artists and avid gamers:

If you love games and art, consider learning more about becoming a games artist! There are a lot of ways to get involved in the making of video games outside of coding, and game artists are a critical piece of the team. After all, what’s a game without the art!?

That wraps up this post! What do you think of Quippy and the presence of all these new stores? Thoughts on Poptropica’s Haxe build so far? Share in the comments, and if you haven’t yet, catch up to our other posts below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Pop Petition: Make Mighty Action Force multiplayer

This is a guest post by Beefy Penguin (username: Durbadal) petitioning for Mighty Action Force, the card game from PoptropiCon Island, to be made into a multiplayer game for the Arcade. Enjoy!

Hi there, fellow Poptropicans. I’m Beefy Penguin, and I just finished the PoptropiCon trilogy. My favorite part? Mighty Action Force.

For those who don’t know, or need a refresher, Mighty Action Force is a Trading Card Game (TCG), which is a game where you collect different cards or trade them with others to build a deck and compete against others).

Now, I am a TCG fan (I play Cardfight Vanguard, a world-famous trading
card game), so when I saw the Mighty Action Force TCG, I felt that the
game deserved much more care and focus in the world of Poptropica.

So here’s what I’m petitioning: MAF should be released as a multiplayer TCG in the Arcade, so players can collect cards and compete with each other. (In fact, they should make a special room just for this game!)

A collection of Mighty Action Force cards.

Each player would have a basic deck, but that could be just the beginning. Single cards and booster packs could be obtained through quests, mini-games, trades, or purchased through credits. With so many characters on Poptropica, the possibilities for new cards are endless.

The game would be played against other players, head-to-head, in real time. A few new rules could be introduced to this game, like a clan system, the ability to boost your action with the power of another card, and to
be able to defend against opponents’ attacks with the cards in one’s hand.

Poptropica has a lot of games in the Arcade‚ÄĒbut nothing like this. It would be a great addition to the player experience, so I’d love to see it happen.

Until next time, stay popping!

Beefy Penguin out.

PoptropiCon Island

The Rise of Omegon’s Design

Hello, everyone!

It is I, Lucky Joker, and today I’ll be sharing with you a behind the scenes scoop on how Poptropica villain¬†Omegon¬†was created! As you may¬†know, Omegon serves as the villain for one of December’s Islands of the Month, PoptropiCon Island.

Earlier today, Poptropica released some concept art of the different stages Omegon’s design went through to become what it is today. Let’s take a look! (For the original post, click here.)

Back in 2013, when Poptropolis Games Island was being updated, the Poptropica Creators designed tribal costumes (which were never used in the game). The Yellowjackets costume, however, was put into use and was modified to produce Omegon.

Omegon’s costume was then used to design the¬†Hench-bot costume, and later the Meow-bot costume (which inspired¬†Omegon’s final boss form). Compare between the concept art of Meow-bot and the final product. Pretty neat!

Omegon’s costume was also used to design many other costumes for the characters in the island. Check out these other designs!

The evolution of Omegon’s design occurred naturally, with¬†many different Creators contributing¬†to its creation. Some designs were scratched and brought back, and many small alterations were made to achieve the final look.

Former Poptropica creator, Lance Fry, even made this promotional piece showing some of the fully-developed designs.

Another Poptropica artist, Ashley Lange, came up with the Meow-bot designs and cohesively brought them together with the giant cat statues in Omegon’s realm. In the final boss fight, Omegon himself takes on the form of a giant robotic cat!

It’s pretty fascinating to know that all of the Creators work closely together on pretty much every aspect of an island. Here is Omegon’s visual development from start to finish:

Remember, PoptropiCon is an Island of the Month, so first-time finishers will receive 500 credits upon completion for each episode and repeat-finishers will receive 300 –That’s a lot of credits! Today is your last day to play, so go and take advantage of the credit boost.

Thanks for reading, I’ll talk to you soon! Pop on!

Islands of the Month, PoptropiCon Island, Wimpy Wonderland Island

Walking in a Wimpy Wonderland: IoTMs of December

Hello, everyone!

Lucky Joker here presenting December’s Islands of the Month!¬†

This month’s featured islands are Wimpy Wonderland and PoptropiCon! I have to say Wimpy Wonderland is definitely fitting for the current season in the Northern Hemisphere. PoptropiCon on the other hand… eh, not so much. But hey! It’s a great island nonetheless.

December's IoTMs.png

As usual, first-time finishers of these islands will receive 500 credits and those who are replaying them will earn 300 credits.

But for PoptropiCon it’s a little different. You see, PoptropiCon is an episodic adventure so it would only make sense to offer more credits upon completing it, and that’s exactly what the Poptropica Creators have generously done! Each episode is worth the usual 500 or 300 credits depending on if you’ve played it or not. So that means you can obtain up to 1,500 credits after completing all three episodes¬†for the first time, which I think is pretty cool! Also, the creators¬†have gifted us by making Wimpy Wonderland available for all players to enjoy! It’s not specified whether this will be permanent or temporary, so complete it while you can!

I think making these islands with a very high credit prize definitely creates more interest for people who otherwise might not be¬†really interested. It sure would work for me if I hadn’t already completed every island. ūüėõ

Of course, there has to be a walkthrough for every Island of the Month. Captain Crawfish has already made a video walkthrough for each PoptropiCon episode and is currently working on one for Wimpy Wonderland now has one as well.

You can either watch his walkthrough for PoptropiCon or read the one here on the PHB! I definitely suggest reading the PHB’s written walkthrough for Wimpy Wonderland, so you can hurry and earn¬†those credits! (Update: Captain Crawfish has a video now too!)

PoptropiCon:

Wimpy Wonderland:

Well, I think it’s pretty cool that they finally featured both an episodic adventure and a non-SUI island for the IoTM. What do you guys think? Share your opinions in the comment section. Anyway, see you guys soon and POP on!

Poptropica: The Mighty Action Trailer Video!

Hey guys! It’s Ylimegirl, back by popular demand!

Today I’m here to talk about a video just posted by Poptropica’s YouTube channel, entitled “Poptropica: A fun and safe virtual world for kids!” It can also be viewed on the front page of the Poptropica website.

The video is less than a minute long and shows many of the different worlds in Poptropica.

And now, time for an over-analysis/summary of it!

The video starts off in the clouds and flies down through some islands before arriving at Mythology Island’s Mount Olympus, where we see a particularly angry Zeus send out a bolt of lightning.

Then a crowd of various Poptropica characters are shown at PoptropiCon as various streaks fly around, which are revealed to be the Mighty Action Force heroes Fashion Ninja, Goldface, Elf Archer, Teen¬†Arachnid, and World Guy. (Nice of them to justify Elf Archer’s flying skills with some sort of… propeller-arrow thing, but how can World Guy and Fashion Ninja do it? I mean, even Teen¬†Arachnid is a stretch with his web-slinging based on how they’re zooming around. Is it because of the magic auras? If that’s the case why did Elf Archer need the propeller-arrow? …I’m thinking too hard about this, aren’t I.)

Next a mystical space portal opens, showing us some… red glowing eyes? Dunno what that is. Maybe it’ll be relevant in the future.

Then it’s time for Zomberry Island,¬†featuring Joe Puddy clinging to a giant blueberry rolling across a bridge. And then we get to see the Phoenix Warbird and whatever-Crawfish’s-ship-is-called fire cannons at each other. (And somehow they don’t destroy each other even though they’re approximately 10 feet apart.)

And for our closing shot, the Poptropica blimp (you can see the back view) travels over the various islands and up into the sky, revealing the title!

So, trailer! Has nice animation, but no rats. (Creators, why must you forsake us like this? You know all we truly want is rats!) They did¬†feature Fashion Ninja and Teen¬†Arachnid more prominently in PoptropiCon, meaning there might be more in store for that island and those characters.¬†It also seems to hint at what’s to come with those red eyes in space. Seriously what was up with that. Well, it was a Daily Pop, but I still don’t really know what it means.

Speaking of Daily Pops, I found three others for this video: one of Mount Olympus, a rough of the blimp flying, and a 3D model of PoptropiCon. Looks like they’ve been working on this for at least¬†six months. Well, kudos creators, all that time paid off. Looks really good!

That 3D model could possibly be a glimpse at how they’re using Unity to make a 2D game on a 3D platform.¬†And there appears to be a more fluid animation style for Zeus and a slightly different look for the PoptropiCon heroes in the video, which might end up being related to New Pop. Or it’s just easier to animate that way, I dunno. At this point I think I’m just rambling.

So, there you have it! Proof that neither I nor Poptropica are dead.
