Taking Photos with Timmy Failure and a New Poptropican

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, with a ton of news! I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I’m ready for action. I’ll include some information about Timmy Failure, The Photo Booth Halloween update, and a character change on Home Island!

Timmy Failure Releasing TuesdayTimmy Failure Wallpaper

Yep, you read that right! If you haven’t kept up recently with Poptropica news, then you’d probably want to know that Timmy Failure Island releases to everyone on Tuesday, which is tomorrow (or today for some of you)! A bit weird of a day to release it, but it probably works for some people. :P

When danger lurks, and criminals hide around every corner, you need the best detective money can buy. That detective is not Timmy Failure — but don’t try to tell him that. You’re about to come face to face with the craziest cast of characters ever to appear on a Poptropica Island. Trying to solve this mystery is only the beginning!

Spooktacular Photo Booth Updates

Even though it’s only the beginning of October, Poptropica seems ready for Halloween to come with some spooky — and awesome — Halloween additions to the Photo Booth on Home Island! This includes new backgrounds, props, and stickers. Here are the premade templates for examples of what they added:

Those are pretty cool, but I think this one is even cooler… Wouldn’t you agree?

Silver (Cat?) saves the day!

A New Character for Poptropica Shop

A little minor detail is that the Shop building on Home Island now has a new NPC in front of the store. They change to the gender the character is, so if your Poptropica is a girl, it’ll be a girl, and if your Poptropican is a boy, it’ll be a boy. They both have some style, and here’s a couple of photos for proof:

That’s about it! Maybe it’s only me, but I am super excited for Halloween! Since I’m not exactly allowed to dress-up anymore, I’ll probably be customizing my character pretty soon. Tell us in the comments what you want to be for Halloween. :mrgreen: Anyway, have fun!

Bai and…profist!


Poptropica Cartoons & App Update! But First, Lemme Take a Selfie

Hey guys, Spotted Dragon here! Lots of updates to cover today. But first… lemme take a selfie.

The Creators just added a cool new feature to the game, specifically on Home Island. What is this great new feature you ask? A photo booth! Upon visiting the island, you can find the photo booth next to the Shop. Thanks to Ultimate iPad Expert for the all the pictures!


Once inside, you will be greeted by a panel of buttons on the left of your screen. They are all labeled in the picture below.


The best part about the photo booth is that you can change the entire scene all on your own, including the characters, props, backgrounds, and more! You can either start from scratch, or edit a pre-made template.


And don’t worry… the photo booth is available for everyone! So what are you waiting for? Go to Poptropica now to try it out for yourself.

Photo Booth - Mixtape

Yeah, this is me showing off my mixtape (which is on fire btw). I don’t know about you guys, but I really liked this update. However it’s still new, so I hope more tools get added. Like adding your friends to the picture, maybe an undo button, a way to add unique text, etc.


In other news, the Poptropica app got updated once again! It has every island up to Arabian Nights episode 3 and Hub Island now looks more like the online version. There are also more costume packs available in the Shop! Greek Gods, Heroes of the Ages, and Pets. Note that there are in app purchases and each pack costs 99 cents.

There have been more videos uploaded to the Poptropica YouTube channel as well, along with an announcement of a new series called Poptropica TV (according to a Creator’s post) that will be featured on the app. Anyway, the first new video is Shark Toon:

This seems to be a weekly thing, judging by the “tuna in next week” message at the end, but it could just be a fun short the Creators put together. Anyway, the other video is called Drawn to Life and features Gamer Guy:

While the first video was kinda funny, I found this one to be kind of long. Sadly, we don’t have a ton of other info on the videos. :P

So what do you think about the photo booth? What about the app updates and videos? Leave your comments below! :D



Timmy Failure: Out now for Members!

Spotted Dragon here with some big news! Timmy Failure is officially out now for members! It came out at 4pm EST today, so if you were looking for a top ranking on the World Champion Map, you’re just a little late.

As for the non-members, you can still play a demo of the island. Meanwhile the entire quest will be available on October 6.

Sadly, my membership expired so I can’t play the island just yet. However, if you’re stuck you can always check out Captain Crawfish’s Walkthrough on the island:

Good luck in your hunt for Timmy’s lost pants! :D



Happy 8th Birthday Poptropica!

EDIT: You can now get the 8th Birthday Balloon in the Poptropica Store! You can also visit any Common Room to find another 8th B-day Balloon! Once found, click it to pop it and you will earn the an item that allows you to hold/throw cake and turn Poptropicans into pigs.

Yep, it’s that time of year! September marks the birth-month of our favorite online game. This year, Poptropica is turning 8 years old, which makes me feel like an old lady. :P

pop bday

To celebrate this amazing occasion, you can now get an 8th Birthday Balloon on the Poptropica app, which will also soon be available in the online version soon. However, if you already have the Balloons item card, you can get the 8th b-day balloon online right now! :)


To make the month even better, a World Champions Live Map is going to be put up for Early Poptropica Island! So go play now!!! The Creators will let us know as soon as the map is up. Plus, if you’re new to Poptropica, you can earn 200 credits when you first complete the island.

Meanwhile, PHB author Slippery Raptor created what he wanted to be the 8th Birthday Costume and HPuterepop made a slightly edited version.

No matter what prizes we get this month, I’m just glad Poptropica had been around this long. It would have never been this successful without its AMAZING fan base. The game may be targeted for younger kids, but I have met many awesome Poptropicans and am super grateful for our little community. So… HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPTROPICA!!!



Pop Maintenance, School, Pelican Prison, & More

Hey Adventuring Poptropicans! SD here with a few Poptropica updates. But before we get into that, I just want to give you a heads up: School has started for most of us authors, so we probably will be less active when it comes to posting. Don’t get me wrong! Everyone on the team will still try to keep you up to date as much as possible! ;)


Anyway, you may have noticed that Poptropica is currently down for maintenance. Not much was explained, so we don’t know exactly why it is down, but the Creators say they will let us know as soon as the site is back up.

In other news, the Creators also recently posted a sketch! Whatever the sneak peek is for, the project is “super-early.”


It appears to shows Oliver, from the Poptropica Comics.

Talking about sneak peeks, you may have already heard of the next Poptropica island! Most refer to it as “Pelican Rock Island” for the time being.

Thanks to Brave Tomato (for doing a ton of research on the island), we know the island is probably based on Alcatraz, which is a (now closed) famous high security prison on an island in San Francisco. When the island was first found, it was named La Isla de los Alcatraces, which means The Island of the Pelicans, so this makes perfect sense!

Fun fact: I have been on a tour of Alcatraz when visiting California! One big thing I remember: It STINKS of bird droppings.

We haven’t talked a lot about Pelican Rock Island, but we will mention it more as it develops into an actual island. For now, I will leave you with this:

We’re rich…on Poptanium!

Hey guys! Long time no post. :P

Today, we’re visiting a recently featured Remarkable Realm. The creator of this realm is Brave Seagull— who made a Poptanium stash! (You can visit the realm by entering the code: 9thzx.)

When you visit the realm, it looks so simple, nothing to hide. When you try to explore and zoom out, Brave Seagull hid a total of 463 Poptanium bars! You can find them inside a whale’s belly, undeground hideout and crystal temples! Check the realm out below:

You can also watch Captain Crawfish’s commentary on this realm!

Make sure to check out more realms with hidden Poptanium stashes (like 4rv6q) er, and discover more creations! Make sure to comment down below. :)

Our Orange Poptropica-ish Discovery Island

Okay, we got some big news that may in fact change everything (or it won’t change anything, who knows), discovered by former ATP author HPuterpop. Thankfully we are not talking about back to school stuff (although the commercials have been driving me crazy).

Thank to the Poptropica Help Blog for the images in this post.

Anyway HPuterpop was searching for Poptropica books when we came across some interesting information. Long story short, Our Discovery Island was, um, discovered.

our discovery island

As you can see, it looks almost identical to Poptropica. It’s even “Powered by Poptropica.” Plus, if you go to ourdiscoveryisland.com, you will see what looks like a weird Poptropica homepage… but it’s… orange.

orange poptropica

However, you need an access code to make an account. You may need to buy one of Pearson’s Poptropica-ish books for a code, since the islands on the site seem to be based off their books. Also, this site is owned by Pearson, which Poptropica is no longer owned by.

When HPuterpop contacted the Poptropica Creators, they said that more of these Poptropica “clones” will be popping up soon. To be honest, this kind of scares me…

Moving on, this (pretty old) game play video shows that the characters from the game had actual voice acting. It also proves that the game was specifically made for students and educational purposes.

Okay, those voice kinda creeped me out… Still, the game engine is definitely Poptropica. In addition to the game play video, there have been some animated videos for Our Discovery Island.

Okaaaaay… Oddly enough, many Poptropicans such as Pixel, Silver Wolf, Brave Sky, and myself have managed to get a hold of an ODI account. Everything seemed very simplistic and along the same lines as the things we’ve already found.

Looking at ODI’s About Page, it looks like it is only copyrighted for 2011. Maybe this was something that never fully developed and no one has gotten around to taking it down? Eh, it’s only a possibility… Although on the homepage, the copyright is for 2015.

In conclusion:

  1. Orange is NOT Poptropica’s color
  2. Even though this new site is educational, I am still very confused

Thanks a ton to HP’s post on the PHB, which I based this post on. Read it to find out more about the books and other things about the site. For even more information, click here and discover things yourself!
