Our Game Guides offer tips and tricks to play your best at Poptropica’s mini-games. Click on the titles to see our guides, and scroll down for more about retired games from bygone days!
Getting to the games
It’s easy to get started: tap the menu in the top corner and select Arcade to be blasted into the Arcade, a whimsical world where you can meet other players and play on various game machines!
Some other islands also have their own common rooms where you can battle other players in head-to-head games, such as the Party Time Tower on Time Tangled Island or the cinema on 24 Carrot.
These are two-player games you can play with other players in Poptropica’s common rooms. To start a game, find the head-to-head game machine!
🎈 Balloons »
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.
☁️ 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.
✨ Star Link »
Click between the stars to link them together and form boxes. You’ll be awarded a point for each box you complete.
These games can be played by only one player, and they’re each found on separate game machines within the Arcade common room.
🚀 Blaster Attack »
Dodge asteroids by swerving your blaster, and press the space bar to obliterate them for points.
🚘 Crash-n-Bash »
On the road, watch out for fires, pick up boosts for speed, and bump into as many cars as you can for more points!
💥 Pop-tastic »
Pop all the balloon animals before they get too close! Each pop gets you 10 points. How many can you pop in 30 seconds?
Before the mini-game system was re-hauled in late 2018, Poptropica had more (mostly head-to-head) mini-games. Here’s what they were like.
🔷 Pathwise »
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.
🔢 Sudoku »
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.
🍒 Switch »
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!
🏀 Hoops »
Use your mouse to aim and power your shot, then click to throw. The first player to make five shots wins!
💦 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!
🍲 Soupwords »
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!
The bygone days of pre-2019 didn’t just carry these other mini-games—there were also other ways of meeting up with players, where you could challenge them to compete with you!
These days most players will go to the Arcade or one of the island common rooms to play, but once upon a time, there was also a feature called the Multiverse where players could create their own temporary room and hang out with others who they invited using a code. There were five room designs available: Big Brain Factory, Enchanted Forest, Techno Room, Sweet Tooth, and Crystal Cavern (the latter is pictured below).
Another method of meeting up, though less popular, was to enter the tribe common rooms. Each of the eight tribes from Poptropolis Games Island had their own room especially designed for the tribe. You can learn more about each tribe and view their rooms on their respective PHB tribe pages.
Back in those days, each player also had their own battle ranking, a ranking out of five stars to show how good they were at head-to-head games. It wasn’t a perfect system: the higher your ranking, the more wins it would take for your ranking to go up—but it was quite easy to drop your ranking with a single game loss. By default, players started with one star.
Just like battle rankings, use the 5-star system below to vote on how helpful this article was! Have fun competing on Poptropica!

I like… the Broken Barrel, Soda Pop Shop, and Crop Circle Inn.
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)
GO SKY DIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
woohoo my main account on poptropica has 5 stars now
Thanks a lot for this!I got 5 starts now xD
ive got a five star rating some how
my favorite is sky dive and im almost at a 5 star rating….
My favorite is soup words. 😀
i might get multiverse when i have more credits.
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. (:<
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.
My favorite games are Soupwords [cause I kick butt at it] and Star Link!
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. 😉
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 (:
My favorite room is : the hair club!
Think about what would happen if you could cut everyone’s hair on
Which island is party time tower located?
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
Sounds like a pretty cool idea to me. 😉 I like it!
Maybe Poptropica will make games for us to buy ……….
I miss the arcade. 😦
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!
Maybe you guys should make guilds for the games in the Daily Pop thing… just a thought
im a big fan of sky dive since its so easy to level up on
it also was one of the original poptropica games, and i have played since the beginniing
! like the games. My favourite ones are hoops and sky dive!
Cool my favorite games are : Star link and hoops. 😉
Good choices! Those are definitely my two favorite games! And I am soooooooooooo good at them!
poptropca is so cool!
I like Sweet Tooth! If only your poptropican could actually EAT the candy…. 😛
we kids ALL have a sweet tooth!!! 😉
The thing is I am just soooooooooo good at most of these games. Here is the list of games I am good at.
And here is the list of games I am not so good at:
However, I loooooooooooooooove all of them!!!
Prickly Dolphin has a guide for Twisted Wizard. Look up top.
Hazy Girl, Its below not top. Remember that.
I know that. I meant below.
I stink at starlink the most,but the one i am good at and also love it,is ………….
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.
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.
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.
That doesn’t talk about the games. Post that into the Cryptids Guide
There’s a new game : Twisted Wizard . Could you make a guide for that ?
Hijuyo: If someone writes one. 😛
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!
Oh thank you Prickly Dolphin! Now I can play the game. Please post her guide to the Game Guides so other people could use it!
Thanks Hazy Girl!! Someone, Please post my guide to the games section. I want to be a big help. I never wrote a guide before this year. PPPPLLLLEEEEAAASSSEEEE Post it PLEASE Pretty Please.

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!!!
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. 🙂
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!

Talking to Hazy Girl : Hazy Girl, thanks
Talking to the PHB: You don’t have to post the guide of mine. Other people will just read here in the comments
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).
I have completed all the islands. Now all I need is to earn 5 stars and then my life will be complete! (Just kidding).
there will always be more eventualy!! so dont think its over yet
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….
Except for Wimpy Wonderland, I haven’t completed any of those islands either!
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.

The BEST games are probably soupwords, starlinks, and hoop!:> 🙂 😦 ;0
These types of good online games might enhance their mastering knowledge and could do better throughout … Because youngsters are apt to have a new love for soaring, they might start with producing document aeroplanes as well as slip …Paper Plane Game
Actually the multiverse costs 0 credits now……. LOOK DOWN
HAHA MADE U LOOK
oh and just saying 0 CREDITS NOW OK!!!!
if i say anything B.A.D let me know
hey guess what! I finished spy island by cheating i used pop-transport when it was really hard!

well i was wondering how and where do you get the postage stamp for the application in Reality TV island??
This isn’t the right place to post your question, but anyway, you get the stamp from Bucky Lucas. For more details and steps, take a look at our Reality TV guide.
his name is Bucky Lewis
order pizza and give it to bucky and bucky lewis will give you the stamp. (bucky lives in room 4B)
have you all defeated 28 islands yet? I HAVE HA HA BEAT THAT
yea thats awsome 🙂
I’ve beaten all of the islands! ha ha
I have only beat three!How do you do it?!?
i want to do something on pop i finished all the worlds but can’t buy membership parents won’t let me and i hate redoing islands what should i do i want the hades staff but i can’t get it all i can do is find somebody who knows! 😦
Slanted Fish: Check out our Boredom Busters page (here) for a list of Poptropica things to do. 🙂
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 😀
and becca if you want to finish all worlds then…PLAY ALL THE WORLDS IT’S THAT EASY!
Is’t the membership is free or buy?
Poptropica Membership costs money, but you can still enjoy the game without it. (The minigames listed above are free.) Check out our Membership Tour page for more information on what you can get, plus help on deciding whether you want to buy it.
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
hey peeps. my top 5 games are these:
1. Sky Dive
2. Star Link
4. Paint Wars
Peace! Blue Peanut OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT!!!!
I love soupwords and sky dive!!!!
Love love love star link, sky dive, soupwords and pathwise.
Yay!!! I love Poptropica games!!!! Skydive…..
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 🙄
I love soupwords and paint war
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!
outdated! look at that inventroy!
aww I miss all the old games
I miss ’em too
