New Islands, Sneak Peeks

Running to a new island this summer

Hey, Poptropicans!

A few weeks ago, Blue Tooth wrote a cryptic post that hinted at the possibility of an upcoming island. We waited with bated breath for any news about a potential new island. Now, Poptropica has just confirmed what we’ve been hoping for: A new island will be released this summer!!!

DEETS SOON #gethype #poptropica

As of this point, we don’t know what this island will be about. All we have to go off of is this cheetah run cycle. In their post over on the Creator’s Blog, you’ll also find a photo containing references for this speedy cat. It’s super cool seeing these drawings come to life through the power of animation!

So far, fan feedback has been super positive. Many fans have been itching to go on a new adventure after what seems like forever. Soon, we’ll be able to travel to a new world and experience an original story, just like the good old days!

So, will the new island be on Poptropica Worlds or Original? Instagram user djf1107 posed the question, and the Creators confirmed with “Pop babeeyyy”: the island will be released on Poptropica Original.


Although it’s nice to see a new island on Pop Original, it’s pretty sad to hear that Pop Worlds isn’t being updated after all this time. This bittersweet statement opens a lot of questions regarding the future of Pop Worlds. Only time will tell what happens to it…

Anyway, are you excited for this upcoming island? What do you think it will be about? Share your thoughts in the comments below! We’ll be on the lookout for any new information about this mystery island, so stay tuned!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Escape from Pelican Rock Island

Escape Plan: Escape From Pelican Rock officially announced!

Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here with some super awesome news!

You may have noticed over the past few months in which the Creators have been teasing us about a new island. It seemed the time would never come when they’d announce the next island, even after putting it on the map last week. But the official details are finally here!

Just today, the Creators officially announced: Escape from Pelican Rock Island!

EscapeFromPelicanRockLogoThe Creators posted a trailer for the island and released the official Tour page! So, now we’re getting a fairly good idea of what this new island is about.

EFPRTheifCharacterSome of the PHB authors have been speculating on this new island for quite a while now, and it seems we may be correct about some stuff. For one, we’ve been speculating about getting framed by a doppelgänger. We’ll have to wait and see some more official details, but the Creators gave us a few little hints on the plot in an island synopsis. The official island synopsis reads:

Pelican Rock is the toughest prison ever built. And after you’re framed for a crime you didn’t commit, it’s your new home! Use your wits to devise an escape plan, and your nerve to pull it off. But getting out is just the beginning — because the real criminal is still out there!

That’s about all the Creators have given us story-wise, but there are a number of sneak peeks showing the island, with even more on our Daily Pop Sneak Peeks Archive!

We also get a look at Escape From Pelican Rock’s member exclusive costumeEscapee Dr. Hare. Somewhat of an odd choice considering I’d assume Dr. Hare won’t actually be on the island (or will he?), but it’s a pretty cool costume nonetheless.

And, last up from the new Tour page is this awesome printable poster:

Plus, check out the PHB’s new Escape From Pelican Rock Island discussion page!

So, that wraps up all the latest info on Escape From Pelican Rock! I’m super excited for the new island. It looks like it’ll have super fun gameplay (perhaps like Survival: Cabin Fever or Spy Island, both of which I really enjoyed), and has an interesting story to it.

What do you think about this upcoming island? Comment below.

Escape from Pelican Rock Island, New Islands

Escape from Pelican Rock – Poptropica’s next island!

Quick post time! Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato and… we apologize. We told you the next island is going to be Prison Break Island but… turns out we got that title wrong. Oops.

Well anyways, just in time for approaching Halloween, the true name of Prison Break Island and its island icon are now revealed on the map: Escape from Pelican Rock! (Thanks Popular Wolf for telling Fishy, and thanks Fishy for letting me know… and allowing me to let out a fangirling squeal.)

prison island

Besides this name and island icon, unfortunately, the island’s official info page has yet to be published and give us the scoop on this perilous pelican prison pandemonium. If anything, I assume it’ll be released tomorrow, and this post will be updated when the info page is released.

While we’re here, since I can’t come up with a full story yet without the main synopsis, I’ll just predict what might happen myself in the meantime.

Remember that one scene from Counterfeit Island where you are asked to protect the Scream painting, and when you do, you end up being assumed to be responsible for the crime?? Luckily there, you just got released after passing a lie detector test. However… this time isn’t going to be so lucky. So… remember these safe Daily Pops?

Behold your one way ticket to jail. You probably try to interfere with a thievery caper only to be assumed by the cops to be the thief itself. This time, though, for reasons unknown, you’re thrown right into the slammer. With the real thief still on the loose and you, a innocent Poptropican, locked up in a place you don’t belong, you have to get out of there and set things right!

As more information is revealed, I can probably expand upon this synopsis, but in the meantime it’s something. Stay tuned to the PHB for more info, and check out our Daily Pop Sneak Peek Archive for more “Escape from Pelican Rock” sneak peeks!

BT out!

Back Lot Island, Sneak Peeks

Kirk Strayer in 3-D!

Hey guys, BT here. Now should I start with the joking or non-joking part? I’ll start with the (possibly joking) part.

Captain Crawfish has announced Poptropica 3D HD. Or is it HD 3D? Whatever.

And 3D images from Skullduggery Island are there.

And low-priced $999.95 3D glasses. (Shipping and handling not included; available 1/01/14)

And suppossedly Jeff Kinney “approves” in a fake-looking quote.

Now, before you break your piggy banks, I’m pleased to remind you of today’s date: April 1st. There. Put the hammers down. Good. Besides, I have a pair of 3-D glasses stashed in a DVD that works with that image and for only $20 something dollars.

But like the nose thing last year, I don’t think this is really happening. I think this is the Creators way of mocking technology with its HD and 3D yakkity yak these days. XD

Now, not everything is a joke today. I actually found a promotion for Back Lot Island in the weirdest spot.

So I was wandering around on Night Watch Island when I encountered an ad.

No. It wasn’t an ordinary ad, though.

So… this is new. The Creators using the advertising spot to take a picture with Back Lot Island’s Kirk Strayer: well-known actor since 2 weeks ago. If you talk to him, he’ll say:

So you enter…

Those seem like epic images. And you click take photo… and a new photo is added to your album!

Now, I think there are a bunch of possibilities for your picture. Here they are:


…on second thought, I think this is the only result you get. I laughed at this, considering the epic preview images in the first screen when you first enter XD.

Oh well. At least we finally know who Kirk Strayer is. But what will go on with him in Back Lot Island? Only time will tell.

BT out!

Poptropolis Games Island

Are You Ready To Begin?

Non members, grab your javelins! Members, move over! We had our turn, but on this  June 14th (Thursday), Poptropolis Games will be available to all! Which tribe shall you join? I hear one of the most popular is Wildfire. I considered briefly joining that one, until I remembered I’m scared of fire. I can’t even light a candle. It’s kind of embarrassing to finally light a candle, and then drop it and scream. So I joined Pathfinders. I don’t know, it sounded like something a water person would do.

Isn’t it odd to see an old-timey person holding a microphone?

Members can spend their last day as the inhabitants of Poptropolis Games redoing the island, before the flood of non members rushes in. Non members can spend tomorrow training for Poptropolis Games. That is, if you’re up for the challenge.

Remember members, you get an epic gear pack, and non members, you get, well… Tell you what, I’ll give you guys a cookie! Consider yourselves lucky, I never let people have my cookies!
