Booking Tutorials, Credits, & Realms

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and there are a ton of updates! There has been news of a book coming out, problems with Realms, the availability for 300 credits, a new tutorial, and more. *wipes sweat off of head* Let’s get started, then! All of the info will be from oldest to newest.


Poptropica Realms Problems

Poptropica RealmsRecently Poptropica Realms’ icon hasn’t been on the map. Wondering why? Well, the Creators have explained that in a recent update, there was a bug in the coding that made Realms unavailable. They’re not sure how long it will take to fix Realms again, but the post on the Creators’ Blog about it was made February 16, and it still hasn’t been added back. It seems like they may be having some major problems, so we’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.


Mystery of the Map Book

The Poptropica graphic novel Mystery of the Map is available in bookstores on March 1.Mystery of the Map’s graphic novel that you may have followed early last year is being released to bookstores on March 1st! Although, going back to the posts on the Creators’ Blog with the posts on the Mystery of the Map pages, it seems like they’ve been taken down. The goods news, though, is that the book will have additional pages and artwork! At least this way if you did read the whole story, there will be some things you haven’t seen before.


National Engineers Week Credits

If you’re new to Poptropica, you may have some luck this week because the Creators are doubling the amount of credits you receive when you complete four particular islands that are related to engineering. (That means you get 300!) :mrgreen:

That’s right! This week only, you’ll earn 300 credits if it’s your first time finishing any of these Islands:

The credits opportunity ends February 27th, so get on with exploring, collecting, and competing, Poptropicans!


Monkey Wrench Island Tutorial

Monkey WrenchIf you go to the Home Island, Amelia Earhart will greet you when you first land, and she will ask you if you want to go with her to an island, promptly named so because the island is full of monkeys. The whole point of the island is to teach you how to play, so there will be messages like the one to the right, telling you how to respond to another Poptropican.

The plot of the island is that you’re racing and you get far ahead, but one of the opponents known as the Red Baroness makes you crash and land on the island. The further you progress, the more you’ll notice that these are the scenes we’ve been seeing lately in the Daily Pops. Also, there’s a little tidbit explaining how the blimp came to be! It seems like you have indirectly caused such a masterpiece. The Creators haven’t specifically said anything about the island yet on their blog ( 😕 ), but they most likely will soon. Although, they recently made a tweet about kids testing it out, and they  just made a tweet about the island, too:


Photo Booth and New Icons

As a side note, there was a Valentine’s-themed photo booth near the holiday, along with a Mystery of the Map-themed one as well. The Creators have posted some of the Valentine’s photo booth creations on their Twitter if you would like to see them. The Mystery of the Map photo booth had some of the island’s popular characters and props that you could use in your photo, with one example being in this tweet.

Another small side note is that the icons for the Menu box have changed some:

New Icons

Well, I think that’s it, Poptropicans! 😀

We’re rich…on Poptanium!

Hey guys! Long time no post. 😛

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. 🙂

Time to Start Sharing!

Poptropica RealmsHiya, Silver Wolf here, and it’s time to announce what we’ve all been waiting for… Or, at least some of us. You can now share your Realm publicly! Not only that, you can visit other people’s Realms and rate them! Sadly only Members can share their Realms right now, but hopefully Non-Members will also be able to share soon, too. Here’s a written guide if you need help, or just want to read about it:


When making a Realm, you can visit others’ by clicking the Realm button in the bottom-left corner. Once you get to your Realms, there’s a new button in top-left corner that, when clicked, has two options: “My Realms” and “Public Realms.” When you click Public Realms, you will be taken to a format sort of like your Realms, except they’re all other people’s creations! You can click whichever one you choose, and you can either visit it or give it a like. It will also have a code, the number of likes the Realm has had, and the creator of the Realm. Here’s an example:

Public Realms

The code is 9d848, it has one like, and it was made by Nice Skull. Clicking the “See More” button will allow you to have 10 more creations on the screen. You can enter this code when in the “Public Realms” screen in the box in the top left.

Of course, you can also share your realm! in the “My Realms” screen, you can click one of your own Realms and click the “Share” button. This will have a Membership symbol above it to make clear that only Members can share their Realm. Once you’ve clicked the button, it will say something about needing to be approved. All Realms that have been shared have to go through this, since the Creators need to make sure they’re appropriate! Once it’s been approved, it will show your Realms code so you can share it with friends. Now everyone can see your amazing Realm! Just remember: any new changes made to the Realm after sharing need to be re-shared. You can re-share a Realm just by clicking the “Re-Share” button. You can also share as many of your Realms as you like!

Hall of Fame Winner Mighty Burger, Nabooti Demo, Realms Sharing, & More

LOTS to talk about today guys! Let’s start off with the most recent Hall of Fame Winner… Mighty Burger!

mighty burger

Mighty Burger is from Canada and has completed 53 islands since the contest started. Now that’s impressive! 😀

mighty burger reality tv island

He can now be found on Reality TV Island.

Meanwhile, some sketchy stuff is happening on Nabooti Island.

nabooti demo

If you’re a non-member and you go to Nabooti Island, you will come across a “play the demo” label. After playing a while, you won’t be able to finish and will instead face the “end of the demo” page.

Could this mean that Nabooti will be the next SUI? I can’t seem to think of any other explanation.

In other news, we will soon be able to share realms!

We will also soon be able to play Arabian Nights Episode 3! Most likely in July, to be specific.

Careful What You Wish For
The genie is out of the bottle, and now everyone wants a chance to make their wishes come true. But whether you’re a greedy merchant, a lovelorn palace guard, or a Sultan with a long-buried secret, heed this advice: be careful what you wish for!

Dun, dun, duhhhh!!! Share you predictions for the island in the comments! 🙂

Talking about new designs, HP recently discovered some more behind the scenes artwork from one of Poptropica’s graphic designers. Specifically, Chris Goodwin’s portfolio. His Poptropica related sections include Scene Illustration, Character Design, and Concept Art. Of course, we’ve also mentioned Nate Greenwall’s portfolio before too. 🙂

What else is coming soon you ask? Poptropica Realms of course! We don’t know when exactly, but we do have yet another sneak peek for it.

It is most likely for Poptropica Realms, considering the other sneak peeks we’ve seen.

The last thing that’s ‘coming soon’ is… more quizzes! How do we know this you ask? Well, if you log into Poptropica (once you’ve answered all the quiz questions), you may find this message on your home page:

Not too suspicious, until you notice the most recent Daily Pop:

Well, it looks like a comic to promote an island, such as the Virus Hunter: Pandemic Panic series. For what island, I’m not sure.

Next up, a sneak peek that seems to be for the Poptropica Comic Island.
