The Escape of Sneak Peeks & More

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and there’s a bit to talk about! Read on to find out the top 10 finishers of Escape from Pelican Rock, missing sneak peeks, and more.


EPR RobberyEscape from Pelican Rock for All

Escape from Pelican Rock was released to everyone on December 30th! So if you’re a non-Member or Member, you can play it anytime you want. I also wanted to do what I used to and highlight the first 10 finishers of EPR Island, so here they are in a slideshow:

It looks like the Pathfinders won this time. There’s definitely no bias here (go Seraphim!) 😉

Sneak Peeks

The fascinating thing about the sneak peeks recently is that some have gone missing, including “Deplane” and “Sack Lunch.” They’re no longer in the Daily Pop, but they are still in the files with their assigned date. However, one of the sneak peeks isn’t even in the files, and that’s the “In the Club” photo. It does have its description and name, though, showing that is was once there. If you go to the Daily Pop and look through the sneak peeks, there will be a plain blue screen between “Fireside Chat” and Light Show,” which is where it once was. Maybe the Creators don’t want them to be seen yet? Either way, it’s odd.

Anyway, there have been quite a lot of jungle and plane sneak peeks on the Daily Pop. They definitely seem related, which is mainly due to one specific sneak peek that has both the jungle theme and a plane. Here they are:

They all seem connected, but the sneak peek with the characters has one named “Thelma or Louise,” based off the movie Thelma and Louise released in 1991. It may be just an easter egg for people who know the movie, but I thought it was interesting. 😛 Some other characters don’t seem to fit either, like “Old Pro” and “Red Barbarian.”

Happy New Year’s!

Happy New Year'sI think I can say for all of us that we wish you a Happy New Year’s! Hopefully this year I’ll be able to post more and be more active in the community, which is probably my New Year’s resolution. I also need to catch up on my island medallions…hmm… What’s your resolution?

atp 2015 art contest

What’s popping adventurers? How was your holiday?

You already know that it’s Christmas (and other holidays) season, but it’s almost the ATP’s birthday as well! To be specific, our 3rd birthday is on December 30th.

So, in celebration of these events, we are hosting… you guessed it… an art contest! Rules are below.

  1. The contest starts now and will end on January 13th (SD’s birthday btw 😉 ). -It will now end Monday, January 18th-
  2. All entries must have a Poptropica, Adventure Time, or ATP related theme. Bonus points for incorporating the ATP’s birthday, Christmas, New Years, or some other recent holiday in your artwork.
  3. Please send all entries to the ATP’s email, or submit your work on Deviant Art and tag SydVC (Spotted Dragon). We will also be keeping a look out on the We Love Poptropica dA group as best we can. If you submit your entry any other way, please try to contact us because we may not see it.
  4. Everyone’s art will be shown in a post, but the winner will receive artwork of the entire ATP team with the winner, made by Spotted Dragon. 2nd and 3rd place will receive an icon of their Poptropican made by Silver Wolf. Details will be discussed through the winners’ emails.

Well, there ya have it! Feel free to post any questions about the contest in the comments section below and good luck to everyone that enters! 😀

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!

island and clothes

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!

LOTS of Poptropica stuff to cover today! First up, the Island Hopper Sweepstakes.

From today until December 31, we’ve hidden one Island Hopper Ticket in every common room on Poptropica. Each ticket that you collect counts as one entry into the sweepstakes. There are over 40 tickets to find, which means you have over 40 chances to win!

Click here to go to the rules page for this event. Sadly, you have to live in the US to enter.

20 runner-ups will receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy, as well as a 1-month Poptropica Membership. 10 2nd-place winners will receive a 6-month Membership. Finally, the grand-prize winner will get to meet Jeff Kinney in a 30 minute long video call, receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy, AND get a 6-month Membership.

In addition to this, there is also a weekly sweepstakes, where 5 winners will be chosen every week to receive a 1-month Membership.

Remember to read the Official Rules for more details because it ends on December 31! All winners are chosen at random.
