However, if you have the Poptropica app, you can already play the island for free over there! If not, you can still play the island demo. 😉

On a completely different note, the week 5 Island Hopper winners have been announced!

Congrats to all the winners! For the rest of you, remember that time is running out for the sweepstakes, so get hopping!

Oh, but that’s not all Poptropicans! There has also been an awesome app update!

We have already talked about Pelican Rock, but there are also cool new winter costumes available! Some free, some for $0.99.

That’s all the Poptropica news for now, but be sure to visit the Daily Pop and the Creators’ Twitter for even more Poptropica info! 🙂

Sweeping Realms & More!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and it looks like we have a lot to update on. Because of finals, I haven’t had much time to be on, but I’m back! From Island Hopper Sweepstakes winners to appdates, there’s a ton of information to catch up on, so here we go!


Island Hopper Sweepstakes Winners

We’re now on week 4 of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes, but we still have to cover weeks 1-3. So, if you would like to know the winners who receive a one-month Membership, they are (with the week as a caption)…

Remarkable Realms

Since the Creators haven’t posted a Poptropican’s Realm in a while, they decided to highlight quite an extravagant one on the Poptropica Creator’s Blog, which you can visit through the code 72pyj.

Esador City

The Realm is called “Esador City,” and it was made by Loud Chicken. It really looks amazing; congrats on your mention!

Escape from Pelican Rock

Escape from Pelican Rock is now available to Members only! Of course, the Creators have reminded us to view the live map of finishers and watch their famous walkthrough video:

Wonderful Winter Appdates

Winter LogoThe Creators have gotten into the winter groove by updating their app logo, along with a free wintery costume pack — including hats, scarves, and sweaters — and a bundle that includes Jack or Jill Frost, a holiday pet follower, and a Yeti costume  for 99 cents. As a little bonus, they also released a free version of Escape from Pelican Rock. So if you’re not patient enough to wait for the release online, you can head over to the app and download it now!

I think that’s about it, but happy holidays! Hopefully I’ll be posting more soon, too!

Hey guys, SD here! If you haven’t heard already, Cartoon Network is hosting a DIY Animation Contest for Adventure Time!

To enter the contest, you must create an account on DIY.org. You must be 17 years old or younger to enter, since it is a competition for kids. Once you have an account, you can create a short Adventure Time themed animation that is exactly 20 seconds long. You get bonus points for featuring the contest’s star: Marceline the Vampire Queen.

Remember that your animation is due on November 15th and that you can enter up to 3 times. Post your entry on your DIY Portfolio and tag it with #AnimationTime.

You can use any animation style you want (2D, 3D, stop-motion, etc.) and are welcome to use these images and audio clips.

The winning video clip will be shown on Cartoon Network on November 20th, during a special AT event! This special event may be the 4-part episode “Stakes“, however that is a few days before the 20th.

In other news, you may have noticed the ATP’s new theme! Halloween is over, so I knew I had to get rid of the spooky decorations, so I decided to just go ahead and make everything fresh and new! 😀

So what are you waiting for? Enter the DIY contest today and/or comment below and tell us what you think of the ATP’s new style. 😉

Coming Soon: Escaping from Pelican Rock

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and it looks like the long-talked-about island, Escape from Pelican Rock, now has its own info page! I’ll be including some details about the Island TrailerPoster, and Gold Card, among other exciting info. Anyway, let’s get started! :mrgreen:


Escape From Pelican RockThe Creators have released Escape from Pelican Rock’s page, and I must admit, it looks and sounds pretty cool. You’re framed for a crime, and you have to escape from the maximum security prison? Seems like a hefty job to me! Although, here’s the full description:

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!

BurglarHmm, two in one! Escaping the prison and finding the real criminal! Although, did the burglar remind anyone else of the one from Night Watch? I put a little comparison to the right. But this one has shoes! *gasp* Along with the description, Poptropica has an awesome trailer:

Personally, I liked the background music, but I didn’t think it went very well with the theme… That’s just me, though. As always, a poster came along with it, which you can download here, but this is what it looks like:

Escape from Pelican Rock Poster
Escapee Dr. HareNext, the awaited Gold Card…Escapee Dr. Hare! What? Dr. Hare? I didn’t think he would be in this island.. Was he kept here before he went to 24 Carrot? Was he discovered back in space and put in the prison? Did he swim to another island? So many questions with so few answers…

Lastly, there are some sneak peeks  on the page — four, to be exact — to keep your wheels turning until the island’s release. It looks like we get a shot of the island besides the prison, the cells inside the prison, and what it looks like from the outside:

Happy Halloween! Photo Contest Winners

zomberryboogy

Happy Halloween Poptropicans! Did you go trick-or-treating? 🙂

Anyway, the winner’s of the Creators’ Photo Booth Contest are here!

Best Costume – Golden Typhoon

Golden Typhoon didn’t just make a great werewolf costume — she also posed it mid-transformation for a dramatic photo. Look how the other wolves are welcoming the newest member of their pack! Creepy!

Best Halloween Party – Speedy Knuckle

best_halloween_party

Judging by the entries we received in this category, Poptropicans know how to get down! Please invite us to all of your future parties. Our winner was Speedy Knuckle, whose composition and character poses made for a rockin’ good time.

Funniest Photo – Tall Kid

funniest_photo

Tons of hilarious entries in this category. In the end, we had to give the top spot to Tall Kid, who gave us three monsters (and two bats) chasing a poor Poptropican in a hot dog costume. We always knew that would get you in the end.

Most Creative Photo – Smart Glove

most_creative_photo

Every photo we got was creative. Smart Glove zoomed out to show Halloween from a perspective we hadn’t really seen before.

Scariest Photo – Maroon Bird

scariest_photo

The Jersey Devil found his way into a lot of the scariest photos, but it was Maroon Bird’s contribution to the Slenderman tale that earned top honors in this category.

To the winners and runner-ups: congrats! I’m sure that even if you didn’t win, your entry was spooktacular. 😉

So what did you guys dress up as this year? Share your Halloween stories below!

Lastly, if my calculations are correct #BacktotheFutureDay was this past Wednesday. Of course Poptropica had to celebrate, so they shared the image above. Woah… I guess the future… is now that past… that’s kinda weird. o_O So, um, why don’t we have hover-boards yet…? XD

Fall Fashion and New App-dates!

Hello everyone!

There is a new Fall Fashion Outfit available in the Poptropica Store for 75 credits!

amazing_jakebuzz-14210-1427585395-12

boy_fall girl_fall

The costume is the same for both guys and girls, which in my opinion, is cool! It’s nice not having the drastic difference of looks between different genders. 😛

aw_yiss

Aw yiss.

In other news, if you have the Poptropica App on your Kindle device, you can play the newest adventure- Timmy Failure Island (for free), check out a new Fall Fashion Pack in the shop, and you can import your poptropican look from online!

importing_look

These features will soon be available on iOS and Google Play devices. 😉

Last but not least, it looks like the Poptropica Creators are up to something….

Their most recent post is again talking about the new photo booth, but this time, they included something more: “It might not be a bad idea to start practicing your Halloween photos in the Photo Booth. But perhaps we’ve said too much… for now”. Could this be hinting towards some sort of photo contest?

Comment below on your thoughts!

Thanks for reading 🙂
