Episode 1: Line Forms Here

Welcome to PoptropiCon! Read the intro, then press Start to continue to the island. You’ll first speak to a lady who inquires if you would like to know how to Costumize, as the feature is a big part of this specific quest. (If you want, you can save your current costume in the tent serving as a closet. To do so, click on the green button of a hanger with a plus in the lower-right corner of the Costumizer window.)

If you are new to the Costumizing feature, you can click yes to learn how to use it – however, if you are an experienced user of the feature, it won’t do you any good to run through the tutorial.

45

Once you finish talking with her, continue right until you find the girl wearing a princess costume holding two tickets in her hands and tapping her foot. Click on her and ask if you can have one of her tickets. She’ll say she’s holding one for a friend, but she doesn’t know where he is. Ask her what he looks like, and she’ll show you a selfie they took earlier.

46

You’ll have to find all the pieces of his outfit from around the convention – the first will be found just a couple of people down the line. Costumize the girl in the blue top hat and take the mystical looking staff that she’s wearing on her back.

47

Next, jump up to the second story of the convention center. You’ll find the beard part of the costume on a man pushing on a vending machine. Costumize it, then jump up to the roof and costumize the hat from a girl who happens to be hiding out. You’ll find some Bottles on the way up.

48

Once you have the hat, find the final piece of the costume on the scene to the left, on a man eating some pizza puffs. Costumize the robe with the moon sash and then return to the princess girl in line.

49

When you get there, she’ll think you are her friend – and asks for “it”. You ask what “it” is, and it turns out that she was wanting something in return for the ticket! First, you’ll need to find her friend, and you’ll find him in line for the bathroom (on the far left scene, past the scene with Pepe’s Pizza Puffs). Talk to him, and you’ll find that he accidentally left the thing in the porta potty! He gives up and goes home.

50

You’re not going to get anywhere in this line any time fast, so talk to the guy in front of you to see if you can bribe him in any way. He tells you that if you can remind him of who played Thor in an old movie, he’ll trade you his spot. To figure it out, go back through to the convention center, and right once more to the alley. While you’re there, pick up the Backpack Straps laying in the “Lost and Found” dumpster bin upon entering the scene. One the far right, you’ll find a poster stating that Bucky Lucas (who first appears on Reality TV Island) plays Thor. Click on it, then return to the line.

51

Once there, tell the puzzled guy that it was Bucky Lucas, and he will give up his spot in line.

Next, talk to the girl in front of you. She’ll ask what time the cosplay contest will be held. You’ll find the information on the second story of the convention center on a poster. Click on the poster and you’ll find out – it’s at noon.

24

Return to the girl and tell her the contest time. She’ll give up her spot and you can talk to the guy in front of her. This trippy dude will only give up his seat if you have the “power amulet”, whatever that is. The person who supposedly has it is the “Cheetah Bandit”. Ok then.

You’ll find the Cheetah Bandit atop the bus in the convention center scene. Ask him how to get the power amulet from him – he’ll say that you’ll have to beat him in a race up a water tower. Accept the challenge to continue.

26

To get to the top of the water tower faster than he does, you can climb the gutter to the left most of the way, then jump off when it ends onto the clothes line. You’ll spring up on the top of the building, so jump on the purple umbrella and onto the top of the water tower. He’ll take the slower route, and you’ll receive the Power Amulet.

52

Return to the line and put on the amulet. When you talk to the guy, he’ll be impressed and give you his place in line.

The next guy wants a “Fremulon” mask from the alien-looking booth in the pizza puff area. Pay a visit to the booth, and first talk to the girl on the left. She’ll give you a pamphlet on how to speak the language of Fremulon. Next, talk to the guy on the right. He’ll tell you that if you can have a conversation in Fremulon, he’ll give you the mask. The pamphlet has all the answers to his questions, but here they are in case you want them:

Him: Scrash sumbellugh?

You: Scrum bellazugh!

Him: Crozzy zup bemblex?

You: Bemblex zup amfrozan.

Him: Grofzellux scrumble blurge?

You: Blurge scrashble bellazagur.

Once you finish the conversation, he will give you the Fremulon Mask!

53

Now, return to the line and give the space dude the mask. He’ll trade places with you in line.

The next steampunk cosplayer will trade places with you in line if you can find her a replacement jetpack, as she broke hers. She’ll give you Jetpack Instructions so you can make one. You can make one at the “Ye Olde Forge of Finery” booth at the Pizza Puffs area. Before you can, however, you’ll need to obtain the clock that’s dangling on the top of the booth. Climb on top of the Fremulon booth and onto the Finery booth, where you can easily take the Watch Parts. Now, you’re ready to craft!

54

After reading through the instructions, just click on the backpack straps, put glue on them, then click on the bottles, put glue on them, and finally put the clock parts on the bottles. To finish it all off, spray paint it with the two paint cans next to your creation. You’ll then have created the Jetpack!

34

Now, return to the line and give the girl the jetpack. She’ll somehow fly off, and you can finally go inside the porta potty (yay)! You’ll come out with the unknown thing that is revealed to be a Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer) of awesomeness.

Go back to the girl in line at the convention center and click on her while you’re holding the Mjolnir. She’ll almost give you the ticket – but then she asks where you got it. When you tell her a porta potty, she says the deal is off. It looks like you’ll have to find another way into the convention center…

35

Fortunately, the security guard in the alley way next to the poster of Thor is impressed with the Mjolnir; however, he won’t let you use the catapult behind him (it might just get you inside by shooting you through a window). He says he will only move if Thor were to tell him to do so. It’s pretty obvious what you have to do – find all the pieces to Thor’s outfit in the poster!

36

You’ll find the beard on the guy who’s first in line for the convention center. The suit for Thor (minus the cape) is on the girl hosting the crafting booth, and you’ll find the hat and hair on the guy in the bathroom scene who you told about Bucky Lucas. Thor’s cape is on the girl right next to him, the one you spoke to about the cosplay contest time. Once you have all that costumized, you can return to the security guard.

55

You’ll fool him, and once you tell him to leave and enjoy the convention (and he does so), you have access to the catapult! First, you’ll need to set it by jumping off of one of the ledges next to it. Fall onto the platform, and gradually it will be pushed all the way down. Once the lever next to it is clickable, you’ve done your job.

56

Now, click on the lever to be launched into the air. You’ll receive the episode 1 medallion just as you go flying into the air and through a window! Score! The episode ends with you crashing in on the show – and it’s just starting!

57

Episode 2: Spoiler Alert

You’ll bust through the window and land on the stage of a costume contest – but as great of an entrance as it may be, you’re early for the contest. The prize, however, is a walk-on role in the next “Might Action Force” movie – and you want that, so, you’ll need to find a costume that’ll win!

f1

The host will then explain that the best “Omegon” costume (from the Mighty Action Force series). After you finish talking to him, costumize the mask off of the guy in the bandit costume.

Then, jump over to the left side of the screen and up to the platform with the cardboard box on it. Push it aside and click the small card hiding behind it. You’ll collect a “Teen Arachnid” card (a reference to Spider-Man) from the Mighty Action Force card game, which will go into your inventory as a Card Deck. We’ll get to that later, but for now, go to the Expo Floor through the door on the right side of the room.

f2

Once there, running past the Demo Area door will lock you in a conversation with someone from the news site “Wicked Cool News”. He’ll persuade you into being a spy for his website, and in exchange, he’ll help you put together a cool costume. You’ll have to find exclusive photos of what the newest design of Omegon’s costume (in the upcoming movie) is going to look like – before the trailer is released. He’ll give you a Cell Phone to keep track of the pictures.

f3

After your conversation, head over to the Demo Area. Here, you can talk to a girl at the Mighty Action Force card game table. She’ll offer you a starter pack of cards and a practice match, which you should accept.

f4

The Mighty Action Force game takes some time to figure out, so read the instruction below for help –

  • You’ll find 13 holes each on the top and bottom of the screen. These are where gems go. To win, you either need to get 13 gems, or be ahead of your opponent when you both run out of cards.
  • You have 6 cards in your drawing deck. Whichever card you draw from that deck is a card you can use, along with others in your usable deck. You get to draw 1 card before each of your turns.
  • You can either attack your opponent’s gems or add more for yourself with a card. The number on the top right corner of each card is how many gems/attacks the card can enforce.
  • You can arrange what cards are in your drawing deck and your usable deck. Arrange them via the “organize” button on your inventory’s Card Deck.

Some cards have extra abilities, such as Dirt Claude, which will block an attack if it’s weaker or equivalent to the card the opponent uses. These cards will have explanations in their card descriptions.

f5

With that in mind, you can easily take out the girl and win (although there’s really no point, as she doesn’t give you anything in return). The games are random and are different each time, so you’ll have to figure it out for yourself.

After the game is over, you can go over to the next table and costumize the bow off of the back of a Mighty Action Force fan.

Now, click on one of the balloons tied to the table. The balloon gives you an extra jump boost, allowing you to get to the second floor of the room. Once there, jump onto the table with the bulletin board above it. Click the bulletin board multiple times, making your character stomp on the table and knocking off sticky notes from the board. The last sticky note will have a “Dirt Claude” card hiding behind it, so grab that before returning to the Expo Floor – and keep the balloon!

f6

The first thing you’ll want to do when you get there is to head up to the second floor and costumize the lady standing by the collectibles table, taking her hat. Then jump off of the second floor on the left side. If you jump far enough, with your balloon’s help, you’ll be able to collect the “Trash Collector” card that was stuck in a window border. Now, you can pop the balloon by clicking on it.

f7

Next, head over to the “Meet Stan Ditko” table, and ask Stan if he had any idea where you could find out what Omegon looks like. He’ll refuse and complain that someone else had just asked him about the same thing! That someone, he says, was news webmaster Sasha Capone. Finally, ask him what Sasha looked like – he’ll say she’s just over there – and she is! You can quickly grab a free Elf Archer Comic Book Cover, then follow her into the hallway.

f8

This part is tricky – there are three doors, and she’ll go into one of them. There are lots of people going in and out of the doors, however, so you’ll need to be quick to go through the right one. After some time, you’ll find yourself in the lobby. She’ll be standing near the center of the room, so go talk to her.

21

She’ll say she does have a picture, but that you’re going to have to give her something in return. When you suggest some loose change, she gives you her Calling Card for whenever you have a real offer. She then realizes an exclusive conference is just starting, and heads toward the conference room. The guard asks her to put her phone in the phone bin, which she does. She then goes inside.

f9

You need to get ahold of her phone, so jump up to the tech lounge on the second floor to the right. First, click the soda machine to get a “Pony Girl” card. Then, costumize the shirt of the swinging pinata guy. Lastly, go into your inventory and use Sasha’s business card. You’ll call the number on your new phone, and it’ll start ringing in the bin. Go over to the bin and take the phone, allowing you to get the pic of Omegon’s cape.

f10

Now, go back to the Expo Floor and then into the Exhibit Hall. You’ll find two complaining employees inside who explain that they’re missing the Elf Archer statue. If you take a look at the Elf Archer Comic Book Cover, you should find that you have the same costume as the Elf Archer – so, when the employees leave, jump onto the empty platform where the Elf Archer goes. (and by the way – you can find a hidden card in the hand of the inflatable superhero – hit the hand to make him drop the “Fashion Ninja” card.)

f11

The employees will come back and haul you into the showcase room. Once they leave, you can take a look around the awesome room filled with cool references. You’ll find the most recent Omegon mask on the second floor to the left. After you take a picture of it, you can return to the Expo Floor.

f12

You need only one more picture to complete the Omegon costume, and you’ll find that picture in the Demo Area. Using a balloon, get up to the second floor of the room and challenge the girl sitting at a table to a match. Apparently she has never lost a match, so you’ll need to arrange your cards to the best efficiency in order to beat her – and remember that she is beatable, it’s just fairly difficult. You may want to put all of your strongest cards that you’ve found into your deck.

42

Here’s a compilation of the Mighty Action Force cards, courtesy of Yujo:

maf cards.png

After you defeat her, she’ll give you a rare Omegon card that completes the costume! You can return to the Wicked Cool News table and give the reporter the phone back. He’ll fantastically whisk away and then return, giving you an awesome-looking Omegon Suit! Put it on and then go back to the Theater.

f13

Once there, the contest will commence. The first contestant’s costume is just horrible, and the second contestant trips on the stage – and then you show up! The judge is impressed, and it’s obvious who the winner will be – but before he can announce it, a real life Omegon emerges from a portal! His henchman forces the other contestants away, and Omegon shoots the host with a green ray gun! At this point, you’re awarded the Episode 2 medallion. Congrats!

f14

A real villain has crashed the party! Can you save PoptropiCon?

Episode 3: Reign of Omegon

Time had passed since Omegon had interrupted his own cosplay contest. The episode begins with you waking up in a makeshift hideout for survivors underneath the convention building.

con1

Tessa Turncoat, the woman who, for the past two episodes, was the Costumizer tutor, is the seeming leader of this resistance.

con21

After being enlightened of the fact that Omegon’s takeover wasn’t a dream, you’ll get up. Go and talk to her again and she explains that there’s a way to defeat Omegon – by getting the weapons of the Mighty Action Force: Elf Archer’s bow, World Guy’s shield, and Gold Face’s electric gloves. They’re in the possession of the heroes’ movie actors, who Omegon have trapped in cages in 3 different rooms because he thinks they’re the real heroes. That sucks. Tessa claims that if they gather the weapons, they can summon the big good Alphaon, who can defeat Omegon.

The pantyhose ninja, the same guy who was holding up the port-a-potty line in Episode 1, will then show you a comic page, part of an arc called “Reign of Omegon”, about how Alphaon was summoned and give you the said comic.

pc3

Now armed with knowledge from Mighty Action Force Comic #178 (which you can refer back to in your inventory), you are ready to save the convention!

If you want, you can go to the left and talk to the two people at the table and you can pick up a Card Deck and play a round of the card game from Episode 2 just for fun (it’s completely optional). But you do need to grab the Energy Drink from the table, because you’ll definitely need that later.

Rescuing Elf Archer (Exhibit Hall)

Go to the vent labeled “Exhibit Hall”, and you’ll find Elf Archer’s actress a floor above you, complaining. Go right and you’ll find pink lasers that are blocking the way. Some of them stay- including the one right underneath Elf Archer- and some of them turn on and off. Go past the ones turning on and off and eventually you’ll find a shield that’s reflecting on of the lasers. Grab it.

con2

When you grab it, a little button will appear on the bottom left of your screen. Click on it to equip the shield. Press the space bar to hold up the shield. Direct the shield to the left underneath the on/off laser that you just picked up the shield from, wait for the laser to be on, and the shield will reflect the laser to the pink power source, which will destroy it.

con3

Go to the left and using the laser on the floor, direct it to the power source above to destroy it. After that, there is one more battery pack. Go left and up and to the right and direct that laser to the left to destroy the last battery pack in the room that allows you to free Elf Archer when you go up to the cage and press the red button on it.

con4

Elf Archer returns to the HQ, and when you talk to her there, she’ll give you her Bow.

Rescuing Gold Face (Expo)

To find Gold Face, go to the vent labeled “Expo” and you’ll find a pair of henchbots turning poor convention-goers into henchbots themselves. When they reach the poor guy who was struggling with the vending machine the past two episodes, the energy drink he finally got shorts out the bot-making machine. Then when manual repair is attempted by one of the bots, it electrocutes and disables it. The second bot then goes off, with the drink guy crying out for help.

Unfortunately, you can’t help the drink guy without the help of Gold Face’s power gloves. Go to the right and you’ll find Gold Face stuck in a cage above you. To get to him, you’ll need to use the power of both the bow and the shield. The bow has a button on the bottom left and you can quickly change between the two when you need it.

Go to the right and in the background, you’ll find a wall with arrows pointing to the right. Equip the bow and press the spacebar to shoot the arrow into the green target, which disables a nearby green forcefield wall. Being mindful of the pink laser on the floor, go past where the laser originally was and go up and to the left.

con5

Push the crate on the upper floor to the lower floor and down to the ground where you see more background wall arrows. Stand on top of the crate and shoot the arrow into that direction and it destroys a forcefield blocking another target.

Go back up and to the left and to the second crate. Push it out of the way of the opening on the floor and up to the platform over to the right. From that platform on top, shoot an arrow and it will bring down another forcefield.

Go back down to where the floor laser was and equip the shield. Direct the laser to where you just opened up from pushing the crate and you’ll destroy the battery pack there. The laser will be gone and you’ll be able to free Gold Face! Go up to him and click the cage button to free him.

con6

Back at HQ, he’ll give you his Unpowered Electron Pulse (power gloves), which he says would shoot sparks if the batteries weren’t dead.

con7

Before you go find World Guy, go back to the Expo and equip the gloves. Also, find the button on the bottom left. Click on the exposed wiring to recharge the gloves into a Powered Electron Pulse.

con8

Now you can rescue the wizard trapped in the machine! Click on the triangle on the machine’s left side while equipped with the gloves to free him. He’ll thank you and give you his Energy Drink, sighing that he wasn’t thirsty anymore anyways.

One more stop before you go save World Guy. Go back to the Exhibit Hall, where the Elf Archer was originally held, and go to the right until you find a vending machine. Using the power gloves, power the machine and you’ll get the last of the Energy Drinks.

con10

Trust me, there’s a purpose to these energy drinks.

Rescuing World Guy (Theater)

Go through the only vent you haven’t gone through yet – the theater – and you’ll find World Guy high in the room in another cage. Go to the left and click on the triangle to activate the floating platform. Quickly change to the bow and shoot the arrow at the green target which will destroy the forcefield blocking the way.

conwg

Go through the passageway and use the shield to direct the laser to the battery pack and destroy it. Unfortunately, the low-quality shield melts and you can’t use it anymore. Oh well, you don’t need it to save World Guy.

conwg2

Go back down and to the right and activate the right levitating platform, and use the bow to shoot out the other green target. It’ll destroy the forcefield between you and World Guy, and you can go free him.

Go back down to the HQ and he’ll give you his Modern Era Shield.

con12

Yay, you now have all the weapons of the Mighty Action Force!

Tessa Turncoat Lives Up to Her Name

You’ll talk to Tessa again and show her the weapons. She looks at them in wonder and once she knows they’re real… she summons Omegon.

con13

Yup. It’s another one of those kinds of Poptropican plots.

con14

Omegon appears and taunts the HQ. Tessa apologizes and sighs that the reason she turned on the Resistance is because Omegon had promised her the powers of Alphaon to her.

And of course, Omegon unsurprisingly betrays Tessa and has his henchbots take her away. One more taunt later, the Resistance seems about ready to give up. However, the pantyhose ninja then explains that in the comic, there was a crystal that if destroyed would send Omegon back to where he came. The information comes from Mighty Action Force Comic #367.

In an uncharacteristically noble move, the pantyhose ninja then proceeds to fight off the henchbots as you go back to the Theater – also the home of Omegon’s Throne Room.

Boss Battle: Omegon

Alright Poptropicans, so you want to stop an otherworldly being and all you have is a shield, a bow and some power gloves. How are you supposed to do this? It’s simple. So anyway, head to the Theater, where Omegon has taken up shop. (Bump into the forcefield a few times to trigger a little exposition.)

omegon2

Now head below that, which will show the crystal. Power it with the energy drinks by clicking the generator (or the Energy Drinks item card). Next, power the three triangular switches with your gloves, run up to the little slit in the wall, and take the shot with your bow! (Be quick about this: they don’t stay powered forever!)

con16

Afterwards, you’ll be celebrating Omegon’s banishment! Congratulations, you’ve beat Poptropicon, Episod- oop, no, wait. He’s taking you to his home dimension. After flying through pictures of the Mighty Action Force, you’ll be infused with the powers of Alphaon!

con17

You’ll be taken to this beast that looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie, and you’ll have to deflect the lasers onto the battery packs on the hands. This will allow you to jump on, power the hands with Gold Face’s gloves, and ride them up to take out the green targets with your bow. Do this for both sides, and the eyes should turn pink.

omegonbattle

And what do we do to things that are pink? We deflect lasers onto them, that’s right! So crouch down like you usually do, and use your shield to blast his eyes out!

con18

Aaaand everything’s back to normal! Congratulations, you’ve defeated Poptropicon: Reign of Omegon!

Trivia

  • PoptropiCon Island is Poptropica’s 40th island, and its first episode was released to members onAugust 28, 2014, plus it came out for everyone on September 18, 2014. For its release, the login screen featured cosplaying characters running across, as well as text advertising Captain Crawfish’s video guide.
  • This is the first island for which the Creators have released an official video walkthrough.
  • “PoptropiCon” is a mix of the words “Poptropica convention”.
  • Common room: Facili-Tee (episode 1 – for the first time, the common room was released some time after the island itself came out), Atrium (episode 2 – this room contains references toLegendary Swords), Boiler Room (episode 3)
  • The PoptropiCon logo is a spoof on that of the annual San Diego Comic Con — both feature an eye and yellow text surrounding the top and left sides.
  • Bucky Lucas, the name of the actor who plays Thor according to episode 1, first appears as a retired star on Reality TV Island. When you give this info to one of the guys in line for the restroom, he says he’d been thinking of Kirk Strayer – the cocky actor from Back Lot Island.
  • Fremulon may be inspired by Klingon, an extraterrestrial species from Star Trek with its own alien language, also like Fremulon.
  • In Norse mythology, Thor is the god of thunder, and his hammer is the Mjolnir, which you acquire in episode 1.
  • In the background of the restroom line in episode 1, there is a sign for Queequeg’s Coffeehouse – first seen in Back Lot Island.
  • Mighty World Force could be a reference to Marvel’s The Avengers (2012), as the characters seem to resemble Captain America (World Guy), Hawkeye or Black Widow (Elf Archer – not to be confused with Black Widow from Counterfeit Island!), and Iron Man (Gold Face).
  • The wizard whose costume you rip off from others in Episode 1 looks like Gandalf.
  • When you beat the Cheetah Bandit, you say “cheetahs never prosper!” – a play on the phrase “cheaters never prosper”.
  • The Power Amulet you win from the Cheetah Bandit is made of a bottle cap that says “Hex Cola”, perhaps a spoof of the term “hex color” – codes used to distinguish colors on the web.
  • The jetpack manual instructions are labeled “ström ryggsäck”, which means “stream backpack” in Swedish (styled like a true IKEA product!). The last step, on the back of the sheet, is “färdiggjord” – which means “ready-made”.
  • Some of the movie poster parodies found throughout the island (such as The Hobo for The Hobbit) have been seen on other islands as well, such as Back Lot and Virus Hunter.
  • The lavatory stalls (port-a-potties) in episode 1 are labeled “John Co.” – john is also an informal word for ‘toilet’.
  • In Episode 2, the “Pony Bros” poster seen on the Expo Floor is most likely a reference to the “brony” fanbase for My Little Pony. That’s probably why the ponies are male. You can see what is known as a ‘cutie mark’ in the shape of a heart on the pink pony to the left. The left pony strongly resembles Pinkie Pie and the one to the left strongly resembles Spike.
  • The “cosmic paddleboarder” poster in the theater may be a reference to Marty McFly and his hoverboard from the Back to the Future movies.
  • Stan Ditko (creator of Elf Archer), whom you meet in episode 2, is likely a reference to Marvel superhero co-creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
  • The “Popular Media Collectibles” table includes toys of Dr. Hare (villain of 24 Carrot Island), Balloon Boy (an ongoing joke since Counterfeit Island), Captain Crimson (of the Skullduggery toy line), and a statue of one of the Daily Pop stand-in guys in a Fries costume (from the Store).
  • The banner of “Proto-13” in the exhibit hall parodies Astro Boy.
  • Many of the superheroes exhibited are parodies of characters from popular culture: Teen Arachnid is Spider-Man, Fashion Ninja is Sakura from Naruto, Dirt Claude is a golem, and so on.
  • Reign of Omegon (episode 3) seems to be a vague reference to The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was in the works at around the same time of the island episode.
  • Members get an exclusive printable PoptropiCon poster, customized with your Poptropican! Members also get a customizable Lunar Colony and Game Show Costume, plus a Popzilla Costume.

    The Good Part about this island is that the items are customizable so if you got a member friend that has ones you can customize it and get it before the island is for everyone 😀

    Hi Slanted Fish/Friendly Fish I added you and when I checked the Friends THINGY I saw you that you were in a costume…(THE OLD MAN —– THE FRIEND OF THE COSTUMED SOLDIER PRINCESS…) And I guess your finishing the PoptropiCON Island…………. 🙂

  3. 15wongnh1 says:

    Hey guys, did anyone deliberately dress up in a costume before entering?

    Because I dressed up as the Winter Soldier (tied with Captain America for my favourite superhero) before I stole Mr. Gandalf-Hybrid’s costume.

  4. lily says:

    i love this island, thank you for helping me with it. i never would have guessed the costumes would be helpful and your walkthroughs always helped me 😀

    • hannah4eva says:

      I found all three of the cans, but it wouldn’t allow me to use the generator thing, it only used two of them and my character kept saying ” That crystal doesn’t look ready to crumble just yet.” Please help! 😦

      • slantedfish says:

        It sounds like you may not have completed all the steps you need to do before the final battle with Omegon. Please read over the guide to see what you missed. 😉

  5. ★☠All Hallow's Brave Tomato☠★ says:

    I defeated the Champion girl on my first try, even without getting the elf archer card from the second guy! O.o how I was able to do it, I have no idea….guess I’m better at strategy games than I think.

    I’m usually decent with twists, but this one legitimately surprised me! O.o I guess that’s payback for figuring out Survival’s twist back in May…

    Anyways I finished PopCon 2 in about an hour, and I still got 19th! ^_^

  6. Strange Cat,Weirdo says:

    Wow,I defeated that girl in 3 tries!

    She and I were close,but she was closer,I managed to prolong her,however,with the Teenage Arachnid. Then she used Meow Bot,sure she would win,but then I used Dirt Claude,annihilating that move. WHOOO!

    Also,I tied her on my second try,and she disliked that more than losing!

  7. Medusa Moxie says:

    ~~Possibly unpopular opinion time!~~

    I don’t like the SUIs. I mean, I like the idea of adding sound and background music to Poptropica, ESPECIALLY the sounds that happen when you land on an object. But I feel like the islands lag more and aren’t as smooth. I don’t like how you can’t use the S key to skip speech, and how you can’t use the motions that come with store clothing when you press the spacebar, like chewing gum.

    Side note: The newer islands have more animated scenes, which I don’t particularly dislike. However, the one that happens at the end of Spoiler Alert just made me cringe, especially with the mocking laughter.

    I don’t like the episodic islands, either. Well, I don’t like how we get a medallion for each part rather than the island as a whole. It makes the medallions feel less valuable since for each island there are five medallions rather than one.

    • renaldiinfernus says:

      Just my two cents, but I think the SUIS have really improved Poptropica. The background music is just awesome, IMO. The added sound efefects are a nice touch that make it feel more immersive. When I have to go to an island or part of Poptropica on the classic client, I cringe so hard….because they have not aged well. Despite the bugs in some of the SUIs at the beginning, they really fixed it up, and oftentimes, the old interface is a lot more sluggish in comparison. Seriously, it is so jarring to go from SUI mode to a common room.
      And I really like that big screen; Poptropica has so much more viewing space now, and now I don’t have to do Ctrl+Scroll to see whats behind that obstacle and see all that weird behind the scenes stuff.

      I really don’t like episodic islands either – whats the point of dividing the island into parts and treating them like they’re separate islands if THEY ARE THE SAME ISLAND?! You can’t visit other parts of the island while doing a specific episode, you can’t access other “episodes'” item cards, and you have to wait for all the island episode to be released, rather than just play the whole thing through. I’m hoping we’ll see

    • cca494 says:

      Medusa Moxie-
      Well, at least the islands are full now. I disagree though, with your opinion of SUIs. I think that they have more fluidity than the non-SUI islands (at least on my computer, but it could be different on yours).

  8. Cheerful Bite says:

    Would it be bragging if I said I just about managed to beat the girl on the first try ?

    Also thanks for the tutorial, I thought the elf had to look exactly like how she actually looks like and I was hunting EVERYWHERE for the parts.

  9. Carmen L. says:

    😦 guys this stupid glitch happened… I played the card game with that girl and I beat her and got the Omegon Suit card. Afterwards, I logged off. And now when I enter Poptropica, I check my inventory but I don’t have the card anymore, and when I try to fight the girl again to see if the card would resurface, I beat her again but she didn’t give me the card… Now I have no Omegon Suit card and I can’t have another re-match with her. I’ve already logged in and out of my account a few times, the card still doesn’t appear… What do I do 😦

    Slanted Fish: Try contacting Poptropica for help via this link.

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Elf Archer’s bow is on the guy wearing a helmet in the Demo Area. Mouth and hair color do not matter – all you need are the four costume parts to disguise yourself as Elf Archer (hat, mask, bow, shirt). 🙂

      • Katie says:

        Please Help me where is the mask???? I know someone said it was on the guy with a helmet in Demo Area but there is no guy with a helmet with a mask?????? Only a dude with a helmet that covers his entire face and trust me there is no mask on him. Please help!!!

  10. Omegasonic2000 says:

    Has anyone noticed that whenever you re-enter the island after completing it, everyone remembers what happened but the evil Omegon is not there? Curious, right? I was about to go mad at them, like “WHAT?! Didn’t you see the evil real Omegon that wanted to destroy the Mighty Action Force just now?!” or something!

  11. Emily Hackman says:

    I can’t seem to find the bow for the archers outfit anywhere!!!!! Can someone please tell me where it is?

    Slanted Fish: It’s on the guy with the helmet, in the demo area where you get the pack of cards.

    • Jaron says:

      wheres the convention center!!?!!

      Slanted Fish: In episode 1, you don’t enter the convention center. In episode 2, you will be inside the convention center the entire time.

  12. Annie&Sandy(the dog) says:

    I was playing and I played against the girl that has the omegon card and i played against her twice then i couldn’t play again and i never got the card.

  13. Angry Leaf says:

    I beat the “champion” right after the demo lady before I got my cellphone, but the Omegon card art has not been loaded into my cellphone. I collected all the floater cards, prize cards, and the other two photos of Omegon after that. I played another game with the defeated champion and then checked my cellphone again. No luck. I tried taking it out of my deck. No luck. Is there a certain order events must be done in for everything to work properly, or should I report a bug to the Poptropica staff? I haven’t completed Poptropicon 2 previously, so I don’t know what to expect to happen to me at this point in my game.

    • Hannah says:

      After the game is over, you can go over to the next table and costumize the bow off of the back of a Mighty Action Force fan.

  14. Helen says:

    For some reason, although I have all the elf archer costume pieces, it won’t work. Maybe it’s because I can’t find the bow. Does anyone know where I can find it?

  15. Nice Dragon says:

    It says she dosent give you anything in return at the card thing. In return she gives you a world guy card (at least that’s what I got)

  16. Sophia says:

    I couldn’t find the glue, I skimmed the walk through multiple times. But it never mentions glue?

    Slanted Fish: The glue is automatically included in the scene where you assemble the jetpack.

  17. Red Belly says:

    Errrm I think I kind of can’t play this island because whenever I challenge the girl to get the Omegon (sorry if spelt wrong :P) as soon as I play her her gems start spazzing out in the top and I can’t do anything about it. Help 😦

    • Red Belly says:

      Never mind I fixed it I just had to go on another computer because apparently some poptropica stuff doesn’t work on a Toshiba 😀

  18. Advika says:

    What the flaming ghost???? My poptropican just got purple butterfly wings that are flapping like CRAZY!!! She got them when she finished PoptropiCon Ep. 1 and 2! See for yourself! Julina94m
    PS Don’t add me!!!

  19. Katie says:

    My Computer Glitched and now when I try to challenge the champion she just says “my deck is so good i don’t even need to you my Omegan card’ Please Help

  20. Shaggy Tornado says:

    Hi guys! 😀

    Serious question: On Ep 1, I can’t get the Viking Helmet to stay on me/ can’t get the wizard hat off. Any suggestions?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Hey Shaggs! 😀

      I haven’t heard of that glitch before – when you’re in the Costumizer view, try taking the wizard hat off, or try costumizing another head/hair “base” costume part to replace the hat. (The helmet should replace the hat, though.) Maybe even go to a non-SUI (non-sound-updated-island, like Night Watch Island) and use the Costumizer there to see if that helps. And don’t forget to click the green checkmark/accept button to save, SUI or not. 🙂

  21. Popular Heart says:

    has anyone else noticed that to make the costume for the white-bearded guy more exact, you can go to where the “Costume Crafter” is, and you can take his braces. Please friend i am popular heart

  22. Sarah says:

    wait, I beat that chick who said she’d never been beaten before, then I got the mask in that room, so where is the third one?? I CAN’T FIND IT AND I’VE READ THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN PLEASE HELP MEH!

  23. Bella says:

    When I talk to the guy with the mask in the learn that language place, he doesn’t talk to me! How do I get the mask if he doesn’t do challenge to meh and I can’t get it to the old lady?

  24. Omegasonic2000 says:

    Anyone noticed the Stan Lee (named Stan Ditko in the game, a reference to both Lee himself and Steve Ditko, two of the greatest comic-related people ever) cameo at the end of the 3rd episode?

  25. christianpunk4jesus says:

    Hey the shield doesn’t work right. it tried to destroy the battery packs and the lasers didn’t reflect of the shield. I am a non-member, does that have anything to do with it?

  26. Friendly Ring says:

    I have a glitch where it says i only have 2 energy drinks when i got all three!! Do I have to restart the island? Plzzzzz help!!!!
    ~~Friendly Ring~~

    • {FRIEND ME IN POPTROPICA} meowofthetiger : Little Rock | meowofthetiger2 : Lone Skull says:

      It may show all three, but that does not mean you actually got all three. Just search around for it or follow the handy instructions above. If you have definitely done this, you have to restart the island (just ep.3 though!!!).

  27. Rhiann says:

    when I go on the right levitating platform, I always fall off involuntarily before I can shoot an arrow. what is going on and do I fix it?

    • hungry octopus says:

      it happened to me also. every time i jump on the platforms and click the triangle with the gloves and it starts rising i always fall please help slanted fish

  28. Striped Cactus, 29 islands completed says:

    This isn’t fair!! It keeps saying there’s no signal when I try to call her cell phone!!!!! HELP!!!!!

  29. Smart Popper says:

    In Episode 3, when I shot the crystal with the bow and arrow, the whole entire game froze! And when I got on Poptropica, it took FOREVER to load! — ➡ 😎 :mrgreen: Smart Popper :mrgreen: 🙄 ⭐

  30. Cai93790 says:

    My computer wont load Ep.3. I clicked play, it went to the Poptropica and then doesn’t change. The loading screen still moves around when i move my cursor near the letters, just simply wont load the episode. ANY HELPERS OUT THERE?!?!

    Try to add me: Cai93790

    • Cai93790 says:

      Have just sent a “report a bug’ message to poptropica to sort it out. it was only new account. probs my 6th, now i reckon spanning 4 years!

  31. John Jacob Jingleheimershmit says:

    SCREM!! sned ehlp1!11! Okay so, if you’re playing ep. 3, and you miss the bottom one, do you have to restart, because I can’t find any other way to do it?! D:

    • {FRIEND ME IN POPTROPICA} meowofthetiger : Little Rock | meowofthetiger2 : Lone Skull says:

      Me too! Please help us oh mighty Poptropica Bloggers!

      • Prickly Monster says:

        (Quoting one of my comments from earlier)
        For Ep. 2, customize the bow off the back of the person in the Demo Hall. For Ep. 3, you need to save Elf Archer (see the walkthrough for how to do that).

  32. {FRIEND ME IN POPTROPICA} meowofthetiger : Little Rock | meowofthetiger2 : Lone Skull says:

    I remember the days when there was only one page for the Poptropica map…those were simpler times…

  33. Orange Biker says:

    I think this is just me, but every time I try to destroy the laser wall protecting the crystal, it wont break, and I am literally going by the books.

    • slantedfish says:

      If you’re referring to the pink lasers, use your shield like you’ve done with all the other pink lasers. Your original shield should have melted before this point, but if you talk to World Guy back in HQ he’ll give you his much better shield. 🙂

    • Quick Ring says:

      Hey, Orange Biker! You aren’t the only one! I think it’s because we both are doing it months after the island was released, but I can’t destroy the laser protecting the crystal either. Maybe it’s just us?

  34. Orange Biker says:

    Ok, this is definetly just me. Every, I repeat, EVERY walkthrough shows that killing the laser thing to get to the crystal is easy. And yet, no matter what I do, the thing wont blow up. If there is anyone who can help me with my dilema, please give me advice.

  35. SeaweedLivedDivergentFire_Swift says:

    There’s this thing blocking me from breaking the laser generator thing…not from the crystal, because i can’t even get there if i don’t break this laser ugh

  36. LaxHero says:

    Orange Biker, it is not you. It’s the computer; shut it down leave it for 3 days, come back to it and it will work.

  37. Mooda Wolf says:

    I cannot get Sasha’s phone, when I try to call her phone it says that I have no signal, what should I do?

  38. Red Speck says:

    Thank you SlantedFish! I was so confused on how to do this island! You helped me a lot! 🙂 This was and always will be my #1 website for written walkthroughs! Sincerely, Red Speck. 😉

  39. Shiny Flame says:

    I’m…not entirely sure what happened. Just as I was getting sucked into the other dimension, Poptropica crashed. This apparently means that I have to destroy the crystal again, only that now for some reason I’m already infused with Alphaon’s power, and shooting an arrow at the crystal does nothing. Is there a way to fix this, or should I email Poptropica?

  40. Moocow says:

    I can’t hit the eyes! There’s a forcefield around them but I can’t shoot the other things that turn them off!!

  41. emmajo says:

    I have every part of the elf archer costume, the mask, the hat, the suit and the bow. But every time I stand on the pedestal, the workers say the costume isn’t right? I’ve checked like 10 times and I know my costume is right?

  42. Nat says:

    I need help on Episode 1 where I finally get to the porta-potty (gross) place and click the porta-potty door, nothing happens. Plz help me!

  43. Achris says:

    In episode 3, it won’t let me do anything to the crystal. Is there anything specific other than bumping the force field? Cuz ur won’t let me do that either.

  46. Kiara says:

    I need Help!!!!!!!!!
    The first time I completed episode one, it gave me the option to continue or do something else like do to with costuming, I didn’t continue.
    Every time I try to continue the game from the Home Screen, It takes me to the part where you have to jump on the catapult and click on the lever, I smash through the window and It freezes!! + I cannot continue to the next episode!! 😦
    I can’t begin any other islands and I can’t continue this one and it’s very frustrating!! Can anybody help me??

    • HPuterpop says:

      How about this: As soon as you login, go to the store. From there, you can access your inventory. Find the Haunted House card, and teleport there. You can then access the map. 🙂

  47. Muddy Mellon says:

    In the first episode when I try to go to the table to create the jetpack my characters keeps saying “I don’t kniw what to make without any instructions.” But I have all the supplies and the Jetpack Instructions are in my inventory. Do I have to restart the island or can I do something?

  48. Random hoppity says:

    In episode one I can’t enter the porta potty. So I thought it might be the clothes doing it so I pressed the t-shirt button – and someone was inside! IDK WHAT I SHOULD DO TO GET HIM OUT

    slantedfish: You need to do favors for the people in line to advance in line – see the guide for details. 😉

  49. Sajo8 says:

    Hey Brave Tomato/any other PHB author I’m stuck at the Elf Archer part, because I’m not being able to take off my Arabian Nights tunic, so they’re not taking me into the storage room. Any tips? Thanks in advance. 🙂
    -S8

    • slantedfish says:

      Try to find a costume part that will replace your tunic to take it off. However, if you’re wearing all the Elf Archer costume parts, you should be able to pass that part regardless of whatever else you have on. 😛

      • Sajo8 says:

        Well, I’m (pretty) sure I’m wearing all the Elf Archer parts… here’s a pic of them not taking me in the storage room- http://prntscr.com/93dd7q
        By the way, I’ve looked around for clothing items which will remove my tunic, but to no avail. :/ Maybe somebody else will know? Can you ask your fellow PHB authors if they any inputs on this? Thanks. 🙂

        slantedfish: You’re missing the bow from the Mighty Action Force fan in the MAF card game room. 😉

  51. DonutzReunited says:

    help!!!!!! im stuck on ep2 because they did not put in the complete answer of how to get the elf costume. help me slantedfish!

    slantedfish: Everything you need to know is in the guide. The elf costume consists of a hat, mask, bow, and tunic.

    uhhhh I was doing it and i did the final boss battle and than I got teleported to time tangled Island and when i went back it wont let me shoot the crystal…

  53. susan says:

    i found all the pieces of thors outfit and customized but when i went to the security guard, he just said “cool replica”, and “only thor himself can move me from here.” and stuff like that. I’ve checked like 10 times, i know i have all of the pieces to the costume. What do i do????

  54. supergirl32000 says:

    GUYS it won’t let me talk to the guy in the fruelmon booth thingy in episode 1! all that comes up is him opening his mouth and going … Slanted fish help?!?

    slantedfish: Sounds like a glitch – contact Poptropica about the problem so they can help!

    • Tall Cactus says:

      That happened to me too. I thought it was a glitch so I restarted, but then I realized it wasn’t one. You have to power the vending machine in the Exhibit Hall with the gloves, and you will get the third energy drink. I had to find out the hard way.

  55. Friendly Octopus says:

    lol i beat that girl at the card game straight after i got told how to do it (id played it on another account tho) so yea

  56. Aiseison/Sneaky Hero says:

    Idk why, but my game crashes and stays on the loading page when I try to go to the expo to save Gold Face. I play Poptropica on Google Chrome. ;=;

  57. chloecalliope says:

    Actually, the girl DOES give you something after you finish the card game. Play once first, then play it again. After you win, the girl will give you a card for your deck.

  58. heyitslaura101 says:

    when i wanted to get a mask and clicked on the person to the right of the booth, all he said was, “…” what should i do?

    For episode 1 of poptropicon, line forms here, I completed the episode. When I went to check my medallion on my profile it showed that I didn’t get that medallion yet, as in the medallion stayed blue and didn’t turn gold. Has anyone else experienced this difficulty?

  60. TheBigEDog2020 says:

    I don’t have the 3 energy drinks, I only had 2. What do I do?

    slantedfish: Check the 3 locations to find which one you’re missing! 😛

  61. NeedHelp says:

    There is a yellow square where the pinata guy should be in episode 2, does any other character have his shirt? I’ve already tried restarting the island and tried multiple browsers but the pinata guy doesn’t load. Worst part of this is I can’t find anybody else with this problem

  62. Triste says:

    what if you can’t get the guy with the alien mask to talk to you? i got the phamplet first and now it seems like i won’t be able to go on

  63. Silly Singer says:

    When ever I try to shoot the arrow at the crystal it doesn’t shatter and I have everything. What should I do.

  64. WhimZ says:

    FYI, you missed a card in the room where you get Sasha’s phone. There is a man on the far right side of the room. Click/tap on him, depending on whether you are using a touch-screen or a computer, to talk to him. He will comment on your appearance saying he sees you are also a Mighty Action Force fan and offer you to a game of cards. Beat him in this game and he will give you an Elf Archer card.

    slantedfish: Thanks for the info! It has been added to the guide. 🙂

  65. Icy Comet says:

    i have all the energy drinks (3 of them) yet the generator still wont power. its not letting me use the energy drinks

  66. NekoWhoLockian says:

    So there’s that head in a container in the exhibit hall where you rescue Elf Archer, right? Wouldn’t be surprised if it was a reference to the Face of Boe from Doctor Who (which is also a head in a container.)

    • Slanted Fish says:

      It is. As the guide indicates, “Using the power gloves, power the machine and you’ll get the last of the Energy Drinks.” Look for “Energy Drink” in the guide – when it is bolded, it means you get the item, and there three of them.

    Hey, guys! The first time I played episode 2 of Poptropicon, I discovered how much I loved the superhero costumes and I was sad that I would only be able to access them in that one scene.

    Here’s their usernames so you can get some free epic costumes:
