Game Guides


Have you finished all the islands on Poptropica? Maybe you have nothing to do? Play the minigames of Poptropica by yourself or with your friends for entertainment! Click on the game names below for a detailed guide about each one, including video walkthroughs with tips.


On your turn, click on any tile to change it to your color. Your goal is to create a pathway that connects the two sides of your color.


Enter digits from 1 to 9 into the blank spaces on the playing board by typing or clicking. Every row, column, or 3×3 square must contain one of each digit.


Swap the position of any two adjacent fruits by clicking on them with your mouse. Connect three or more fruits in a row to score points!


Use your mouse to aim and power your shot, then click to throw. The first player to make five shots wins!

Sky Dive

Your goal is to safely reach the ground before your opponent. When it says go, click once to jump, then click again when you’re ready to open your parachute.

Paint War

Drag the gun to aim. Press, hold, and release the FIRE button to shoot at the paint balloons. The first player to pop 7 balloons wins!

Star Link

Click between the stars to link them together and form boxes. You’ll be awarded a point for each box you complete.


Click on a nozzle to release a balloon. The first person to get four balloons in a row wins! You can line them up straight or diagonally.


Spell words by connecting two or more letters. Find as many words as you can before the soup gets cold!

Twisted Wizard

To get Greg off his video game console on Wimpy Wonderland Island, you’ll have to beat the game Twisted Wizard for him. It’s three whole levels of ogre-zapping fun!

Note: There are also other mini games embedded into the Daily Pop, but those are pretty self-explanatory and aren’t exclusive to Poptropica, so we do not have guides for them here.

Games Inventory

You can access a games inventory while playing in Poptropica. To do this, just click on the backpack icon (the inventory) on the top right corner of the gamescreen. There used to be a Games Icon, but it was moved to the inventory when the Poptropica Store came out. To see what the games icon used to look like, click here.

Find Games Inventory

Now click on the dropdown list at the top of the inventory window, and choose the “Games” option (the letters are in white) to access the list of games.

Most games are multiplayer (meaning you play against another player), but Switch and Twisted Wizard (from Wimpy Wonderland) are single-player only. Sudoku can be multiplayer or single-player.

Multiplayer rooms

To meet other players so you can play games with them or chat, you’ll need to enter a multiplayer room! There are a few types.

Common Rooms

Each island has its own multiplayer room, called a Common Room, and only about 6 people can be in a multiplayer room at a time. They are found on the first area of each island (usually called Main Street), and have three floors which you can access to look for other players.

Multiverse Rooms

There are also rooms called Multiverses, and each room can be accessed with a code. To visit one, click on the ‘friends’ icon on the top-right corner and enter in their code, then click Join. As long as the room isn’t too full, you will be let in! A great place to meet up with others who are also online at the same time is at our live Poptropica Help Chatroom (PHC).

A Multiverse party in the Crystal Cavern room!

A Multiverse party in the Crystal Cavern room!

You can get your own Multiverse for free in the Poptropica Store. Click the “Friends” tab, then click “Multiverse” to create your own room. The different types are:

  • Big Brain Factory
  • Enchanted Forest
  • Techno Room
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Crystal Cavern

Keep in mind that if the room is empty, the code for that room will expire. You can re-create a room by going back to the Friends icon, and it will have a different code.

Tribal Common Rooms

Also, each Tribe has their own unique Tribal Common Room. Once you’re part of a tribe, you can enter its exclusive common room, which is only open to the other members of the tribe! To get in, open your profile, click on your tribe’s logo, and click “Join Room.”

Black Flags

The Black Flags’ tribal common room, where you can fire a cannon!

It’s a great way to meet and befriend new tribal mates. Each tribe’s room looks different and has some hidden interactive elements, which you can discover in the PHB’s pages about each tribe.

Invite a player to play a game

To battle against another player on one of the games, first click on the player you wish to battle. You need to be in a multiplayer room. Click the “Battle” option, and a list of games will appear for you to choose from.

Click on the name of the game you want to play (for example, if you want to play Star Link, click “Star Link”). Your character will then say, “Do you want to play Head-to-Head [name of game]?” The other player will then be given a choice to answer: “Sure!” to start the game; or “No, thank you!”

Battle Ranking

When you hover your cursor over a player on a multiplayer room, you may notice stars under their name. This represents their battle ranking, which is earned based on how well you play games. You can also view your battle ranking on your Friends profile.

By default, players start with one star. Win a few games, and your battle ranking may increase; lose some games, and your stars may drop. Players with 5 stars are regarded as truly skilled gamers, since this is hard to earn!

Just like battle rankings, use the 5-star system below to vote on how helpful this article was! Have fun competing on Poptropica!

    Wow thats cool. I guess it is true when there are only six people at a time in a room, because every time i go in the same room, they have different people.! :mrgreen:

  2. Thomas says:

    my username is shinnsuke and my password is hhhhh i don`t use this person anay more hay scary tomato i saw a person with a ipod in a mulitplayer room i have seen you in the hair club in spy island

    • Nunna Yo Business says:

      I HATE Hoops! But I ROCK at Sky Dive. Most very skilled players when they challenge me they drop first but when I land they make a hole in the ground.

  3. Lina says:

    mine are 100% star link and soupwords. but in order of the ones i like are: 1. star link 2. soupwords 3. sky dive 4. hoops (hoops and sky dive are a tie i just chose one to put in front) 5. paint war 6. paint war 7. balloons and finally 8. sudoku


    we have ALOT of diff games

  4. Orange Raptor says:

    I like Hoops, but the one that I’m best at is probably Soupwords. I usually hang out at The Daily Paper and The Hair Club.

  5. tall horse says:

    I like Paint War, Hoops, Soupwords and Star Link. Actually, I like all of them except Sudoku, becasue I’m really not that good at it. 🙂

  6. nix says:

    i like sky dive the most, cause i win all the time.wanna know how? well, u just have to clik the mouse only once u see the top of the tree to the left, but u need good reflexes if u dont want to crash!!! if u want to prove that ur winning because of this tip, face me; im Speedy Crush, and if u really want to make sure its me, i smile uncontrollably.

  7. Twilight&FOB says:

    if you play a game…will it give you money or points?

    Scary Tomato: Depending on if you won or lost the game, it will change your battle ranking higher or lower. Playing games doesn’t affect your Poptropica Credits, however. 😉

    • anahappysword says:

      I love Sky Dive buti don’t think i get my stars filled for that anymore.
      Once,i played against a girl who was just as good at sky dive as me.She went on and on and won as much as me.
      The game was endless and i waited for her to quit on me like everyone else.
      She still faced me,though.I think i ended up quitting…..
      Anyways,endless Sky Dive can get tiring sometimes.

  8. Cool Wing says:

    to play sudoku you have to type in the numbers if you get it wrong you have to wait 5 seconds. the stickies are for if you think its right but you are not sure. Hope this helped!

    PS I am Cool Wing on Poptropica too! 🙂

  9. Crazy Lion says:

    Codien’s hair almost blends in with the backround. 🙂
    You guys rock with all you help and stuff!

    PS: I’m Crazy Lion on Poptropica too!

  10. Lina says:

    perfect tomato, i couldnt help noticing that your picture is the same as Shiny Leaf’s. That means that you typed in the same e-mail. so…r u the same person as shiny leaf?

  11. Shiny Leaf says:

    Lina: Actually, Perfect Tomato is my brother, and we kids at home don’t have our own personal e-mail address, so we just use the same one. Our dad’s e-mail address. So, Perfect Tomato and me aren’t the same guy.

  12. Fearless Paw says:

    Neat Whale (Comment 46):
    The battle ranking has been around since the beginning of poptropica. People do chat;
    just a lot less than attepting to increase their battle ranking.:wink:

  13. Angry Leopard says:

    i wish i could meet you in poptropica ST my name is Angry Leopard or Brave Hopper. Maybe you could see my brother, Mighty Bones! 👿

    P.S. Brave Hopper is really brave just belive this a game nothing to worry i did that and done Big Nate Island :mrgreen: 😆 🙂 😉

  14. Grey Flame says:

    On hoops I think there’s a glitch: whenever I play, instead of the other person’s character it shows some afro guy with a tank top and a black eye. It only works if someone challenges you to hoops, though.

  15. clubpenguin4607 says:

    Tips on sodoku!

    1. You have to have 1 of each number going across in a box or horizontoly. If you are doing in a box sometimes its like you have to do an order like 1 2 3 but if one of the numbers are already on the box or across or horizontely pick the next number (Maybe this tip might work or not) Digitable stickers are for if you want to pick a number and your not sure ( Sometimes peo
    ple use this ALL THE TIME!!!) 2. You have to look all 3 ways acrooss in a box or horizontaly because if your wrong you will have to wait 10 seconds to move again!!! 3. Offending this tip si to be warned of your opponent you never know if the opponent know the game! So you gotta be pretty quick on choosing numbers BUT NOT TO QUICK or else you will get it wrong!

    Correct me if i got anything wrong…

    • serious spider says:

      Thanks for the tips. I know how to play Sudoku but when I’ve nearly finished the whole thing, I often need to switch cells around because it get’s more difficult.

  16. Orange Tummy says:

    In Switch, you can earn points by swapping the fruits before the timer starts during the instructions, I cheat with it. 😀

  17. Cheerful Claw says:

    I have a Battle Ranking or 4 2/3 stars, and it was only because I only played Head to Head Paint Wars. XD So if you ever want to play, just find Cheerful Claw!

  18. Michael says:

    I, “Incredible Hero”, am the MASTER at sky diving. I’ll Be at the ‘spy island’s’ multiplayer place if u want uh challenGE!!

  19. Noisy Fish says:

    When C.I came out in the early pass section when you looked into games you would see a game called “Track and Find” but when i looked a few days ago the game was gone.

    Hijuyo: Search the PHB for ‘Track and Find’… we found a secret sneak peek of some time ago.

  20. Green Boa says:

    grrrrrr i don’t like the people limit in multiverse, I’m NEVER being let into a room! 😦 😦

    Hijuyo: If you make your own Multiverse room, you can be the first one in! The limit of players at a time is probably to prevent loading issues. 😛

    • Green Boa says:

      Oh whoops I mean multiPLAYER room. 😛 And my computer does not connect for multiverses because I don’t live in a town or city… :I so I can only play in multiverses when I’m in town… :I which sadly isn’t often 😦

  21. clubpenguin4607 says:

    An upgrade to my game list:

    1: Sky Dive ( Yes, its still number 1)
    2:Hoops (Pretty simple to me, lost a few times though)
    3: Star Link (Especially easy when im facing a new poptropican)
    4: Switch (I find switch easier than sudoku)
    5: Sudoku (Pretty hard now)
    6: Balloons (I dont really like this game)
    7: Pathwise (Bleh, almost impossible to win)
    8: Soupwords (I HATE THIS GAME PERIOD!)

    Please note that Paint War is not in my list any more, i hate that game now >.<

    • breakfast says:

  22. Joseph says:

    Hey, I thought up of a new game! It’s really fun. It’s called “Dodge The Coconut”. Here’s how to play:
    1. Go to Shark Tooth Island.
    2. Go right until you get to Ancient Ruins.
    3. When a coconut falls, try to dodge it without getting hit by it.
    4. Keep track on a piece of paper to write how many you dodge and how many you get hit by.
    5. If you dodge 10 coconuts you win, but if you get hit by 3 you lose.
    Have fun playing it!

  23. theflamebringer says:

    I wish you couldd get credits for playing games then I would have a lot of credits. I like the Soda Pop Shop and the Cinema in 24 Carrot. That’s where I usually am (I finished all the islands in one day)

  24. DragonScythe says:

    Um, hey I have a question. How did you guys get those hand items like the big swords or plunger :/?

    Hijuyo: Some of us have our ways of knowing how to use hacks. (:<

    • DragonScythe says:

      This means I have to find out myself or you’re not gonna tell me, huh.


      Hijuyo: Yes, because the Poptropica Creators do stalk this blog and they’ll fix any hacks they don’t want players to have access to, so it’s best not to reveal everything we know to the public.

  25. Icy Lightning says:

    What game gets you closer to a 5 star ranking ? Or does it not matter ? Or is it the game your’e best at ? Please reply !

    Hijuyo: The game itself doesn’t matter, but you have to win LOTS of games to get to a 5 star ranking. Playing the game you’re best at means you have a better chance of winning. 😉

  26. Icy Lightning says:

    I like The Soda pop shop , The Fly By Night Airlines , The Flying Ace Cafe` and The Hair club ! The least popular multiplayer rooms are : The Daily Paper , Coconut Cafe` , Cinema , Moldy Baguette , Billard’s Room , Steamworks Gears , Arcade and the Broken barrell . The Most Popular multiplayer rooms are : Fly-By-Night Airlines , The Flying Ace Cafe` , Midas Gym , Crop Circle Inn , The Soda Pop Shop , Party Time tower , The Hair Club , and Cap’n Salty’s …….. LOOK FOR ME ON POPTROPICA IM ICY LIGHTNING I’LL MOSTLY BE IN THE FLY-BY-NIGHT AIRLINES AND PARTY TIME TOWER (:

  27. Icy Lightning says:

    It would be cool if the “multiplayer only” games would able to play while you are not in the multiplayer room ! And your opponent could be the computer ! So even if all the multiplayer are full or don’t have any people , you could play the games you want

  28. Bony Laser says:

    I made this game up:
    Go to Skullduggery and have a boat with a good amount of speed and cannons.
    Find creatures and kill them, see how far you can go!

  29. Barefoot Sun says:

    The thing is I am just soooooooooo good at most of these games. Here is the list of games I am good at.
    Star Link
    Sky Dive

    And here is the list of games I am not so good at:

    Paint War
    Twisted Wizard

    However, I loooooooooooooooove all of them!!!

  30. Barefoot Sun says:

    I have an idea about something you could do, and you could do this with any multiplayer games! Go look for someone with a high battle ranking, an average of about 4 to 5 stars. Play any game with them. It will be hard to beat your opponent. If you win it means you are very good at that game! Also try your hardest not to lose, because if you do, you will lose part of your battle ranking, and then it will take longer to get to 5 stars.

    • cool fish says:

      I once had 3 and 1/2 stars, but when I played a game with someone with 4 stars
      and I won, the one who lost the game
      lost 1/2 of one of his stars.

  31. jack says:

    what happens if i didn’t get the clippers on cryptids? What do i do.

    Hijuyo: Go back and get the bolt cutters; you need them.

  32. Icy Lightning says:

    There’s a new game : Twisted Wizard . Could you make a guide for that ?

    Hijuyo: If someone writes one. 😛

    • Prickly Dolphin says:

      I got a guide for Twisted Wizard. Ok Here is how to play. Go into your games in your backpack and click on Twisted Wizard. Click on the wizard. You need to enable cheats. So, x out the game and go into the Wimpy Wonderland stuff of yours and click on the guide. Your poptropican will say that to set easy mode by clicking the wizard on the Start Memu. Now go back to the backpack and go into the games section and click on the game Twisted Wizard. Click the wizard. It says to enable cheats. Now click okay and start playing. On Level One, bulid a castle by using all the blocks before time runs out. When you have used all the blocks, its time to defeat the green guys. When you see one, defeat it with your mouse. Keep doing it until time runs out. When time runs out, you are on Level Two now. On Level Two, bulid some more of your castle. Use all the blocks before time runs out. After you use all the blocks, its time to defeat some more green guys. It will get just a little faster but it will still be easy. Now two or more green guys might show up with each other. Defeat them fast before the other guys get you. Defeat all the guys. When time runs out, you are moving on to the last level Level 3. Now bulid some more so the green guys won’t get in. Use all the blocks before time runs out. When you have use all the blocks, defeat the guys again. Now more and more will come so defeat them fast. Keep doing it or else you will lose. When time runs out, you won! Great job! I tried the game so I know all this. Post this to the game guides please!

      • Prickly Dolphin says:

Please I want to be one of the helpers on this web site so post it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!! Thank you and Have a nice day. Peace!!!

      • Hijuyo (Slanted Fish) says:

        Thanks for writing a guide for Twisted Wizard! You don’t have to be so demanding about getting your guide published; here at the PHB we will only publish something if we think it’s worth it.

        In any case, I’ve fixed it up a little and put out a Twisted Wizard guide on a page you can access by clicking here. Thanks again, Prickly Dolphin. 🙂

      • Prickly Dolphin says:

        Oh thanks Hijujo!!! Sorry I was demanding!!! I just want it to be posted!! I wanted to be a helper. I mean no one wrote one yet except me. I looked at the guide. Well I guess I could make mistakes but thanks for fixing it! I am so excited!! Youre welcome again. Everyone will read my guide. Even Icy Lightning and Hazy Girl! Hazy Girl is my best friend. Any time I comment, shes comments with me. Thanks again Hijuyo!

  33. CJ says:

    Wow. Wait if you baught the credits and the room became empty, could you re-created another room without using MORE credits? Just wondering, and this website is great! (Just letting you know.)


    Hijuyo: Yes! You only have to pay once for Multiverse (on one account, of course).

  34. Icy Lightning says:

    I have completed all the islands. Now all I need is to earn 5 stars and then my life will be complete! (Just kidding).

    • Little Hero says:

      ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!! I still haven’t completed Astro Knights, Skullduggery, Steamworks, Wild West, Wimpy Wonderland, Red Dragon, and Game Show… I know thats A LOT OF ISLANDS….

      • Friendly Comet aka Captain Comet aka Super Comet says:

        Except for Wimpy Wonderland, I haven’t completed any of those islands either!

  35. noisy crumb says:

    will you meake a guide for the haunted house game that you purchase for free in the store ?

    Hijuyo: Haunted House isn’t a game, it’s a mini quest. A guide for it can be found here.

  36. Haley says:

    Im not even done wit the islands i wonder why im postin stuff ……. I THINK IM JUST BORED!!! WELL BYE AWW MAN i forgot to turn the caps of now my post is just ruined……

    Slanted Fish: Check out our Boredom Busters page (here) for a list of Poptropica things to do. 🙂

    • shinykid says:

      Get membership, or go time traveling, make a new character, Those are some boredom busters on Poptropica when I don’t want to do my algebra 😀

  38. Shinykid157 says:

    Good, I am southern and I get mean, Don’t YOU EVER talk like that on this blog. You can visit just don’t talk like that, everyone wants to keep this blog as cool as a cucumber, which I am going to eat with cauliflower and brussel sprouts

    • Blue Peanut :) says:

      3. Hoops
      4. Paint Wars
      5. Soupwords
      Peace! Blue Peanut OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT!!!!

  39. Tyson4924 says:

    i have a battle ranking of 3.4 which i am angry because once i had 4.5 then lost 2,just 2 games and it went down to 3.4 and no matter how many time i win games,my battle ranking NEVER goes back up and in total in all games
    Losses-205 i mean i was excepting to have about 4.2 by now,so that just sucks 🙄

  40. Friendly Comet aka Captain Comet aka Super Comet says:

    This is my strategy for Star Link:
    Go all the way along the edge (or as much as you can) and when there’s a square with three lines, move in for the kill!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
