Stolen Snapshots


Originally premiering on Slippery Raptor’s Blog, Stolen Snapshots is a puzzle game that puts your Poptropica recognition skills to the test. Someone messed up the pictures on Slippery Raptor’s table, and now he doesn’t know which islands they belong to! Can you help Slip find the answers?

Here on the Poptropica Help Blog, we are showing past puzzles that have already premiered on Slip’s blog as well as current ones, to be updated at the end of each month. You can hover over an image to see what number it is, and the corresponding answers are posted below each round (we’ve broken up the game into rounds to make it easier to scroll through or come back later).
