Poptropica is an online role-play browser game created by Jeff Kinney and Family Education Network for kids ages 6–15.

In the game, players, called Poptropicans travel to different islands and complete quests on them. So far there are forty-five islands released on Poptropica and over 500,000,000 Poptropicans. Poptropica creates a lot of merchandise, including the Poptropica Blimp toy and many outfits, all of which are sold at the Poptropica Shop. They also make action figures, plush models, and "Pocketeers," which are two-inch toys.

Mini-Islands

Main article: Mini-Islands

Also called Miniquests, Mini-Islands are quest that looks like the island quests, but shorter and usually easier. The Mini-Islands can be bought on Poptropica Store with various prices. However, since late 2011, the Mini-Islands would not cost any credits. Below is a list of Mini-Islands released on Poptropica:

There's also a Mini-Island play called Blimp Adventure. You must buy the Poptropica Blimp first on Toys R Us to get the redeem code.

Bonus Quests

The S.O.S Island Bonus Quest

In December 2011, Poptropica started releasing bonus quests for members. The bonus quest can be unlocked when you finish selected islands. The islands that have Bonus Quests are:

The Poptropica creators have stopped making Bonus Quests since Survival Island came out.

Island Restart

On July 6, 2011, Poptropica started allowing players to replay islands, while keeping all the Island Medallions they had already earned. After you finished the island numerous times, you'll get to see how many times you've completed it.[1] An island can be restarted from the map screen.

HAXE Port

A port of Poptropica, made in JavaScript, was announced in 2018 and first available to the public on March 11, 2020. The most recent version of the port can be played here.

Changes

  • The game is programmed in JavaScript. Graphics are PNGs instead of SVGs and are ported from Flash. Files are GAFs and PNGs contained in ZIP files, as opposed to SWFs. XML files remain in use.
  • On release day, account creation was not possible. Users did not yet get benefits from membership, and the account name in the Account Settings window was "default0".
  • Players are given six sample Poptropicans to choose, each with a unique name and appearance:
  • On episode 1 of Survival Island, the fire effect is a solid image instead of a group of particles.
  • On episode 1 of Survival Island, the water droplets in the cave are more visible and fall at a faster rate.
  • The player's Poptropican's eyes no longer track the cursor, but all other Poptropicans' eyes still do.
  • Amelia's scarf was removed and replaced with pilot goggles.
  • A daily reward system was added. Players get extra Credits every day if they log in: 50, 75, 100, 150, and 250 for days 1-5.
  • Escape from Pelican Rock Island has multiple changes between the Flash and HAXE versions:
    • The bearded man's line, "Scoping out the scenery, eh?" is now "It's a crime that some pets drink grape soda. I just saw a dog with a purple tongue."
    • Bird droppings were added to the outside of the prison.
    • Two signs reading "Caution: Steam" and "Do Not Overwork the Machine!" were added near the license plate maker.
    • The mess hall now has graffiti on the walls and a trash can.

Timeline

  • On March 11th, 2020, the HAXE port was made public. Home Island, 24 Carrot Island, Snagglemast Island, Survival Island episode 1, and PoptropiCon Island episode 1 were available. Timmy Failure Island, Escape from Pelican Rock Island, Shrink Ray Island, and Mythology Island appeared on the map, with Timmy Failure Island being labeled "coming soon" and "not ready to play," also appearing half-sunk. The other three islands were completely submerged underwater.

  • On April 2nd, 2020, Timmy Failure Island was released for members. Escape from Pelican Rock Island was updated with a "Coming Soon" label and partially rose out of the water.
  • On April 9th, 2020, the character select screen was further redesigned. Players can choose pre-made characters with unique names. Additionally, this update changed the dialogue on Home Island to ask players what they would like to do in the game and fixed a bug in which the game would crash after jumping on the pig on Home Island.
  • On April 21st, 2020, 24 Carrot Island's dialogue was updated and rewritten, mostly to give hints to players. The description for the island was also updated.
    • Old: "People are going missing, and the carrots are disappearing. It's up to you to get to the bottom of the mystery!"
    • New: "Kids, carrots, and a cat have gone missing! Help solve the mystery!
      Island Tips:
      Find the cat
