One giant leap for map-kind

For some time now, Poptropica has had a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless. The problem: too many Islands! Vampire's Curse Island will be our 25th Island, if you can believe it. And our map was starting to look really cluttered.

First, we thought we would just have to erase some Islands. Flush 'em right down the drain. But as our fingers were hovering over the "delete" button, somebody had an idea: why not make a new map? We all agreed that was a much better solution.


Now, when you log onto Poptropica for the first time, or return to your blimp from Main Street of any Island, you'll see this new and improved map screen!

It has a few advantages over the old one. The Island icons no longer move, so it's easier to read their names. The newest Islands are at the very beginning, so you'll won't have far to look for the latest and greatest adventure. And we've split up the map into different pages, which makes it easier for you to sort through them.

Oh, and most important of all: the birds chase your blimp.

We hope you enjoy the new map, and that it helps makes your visit to Poptropica even more fun than before.

Happy Leap Day! There won't be another one for 4 years.

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: More oxygen on S.O.S. Island

Thanks to a few new features on Poptropica, it turns out that you can play S.O.S. Island in a whole new way, if you just follow a couple of easy steps.

First, play through the bonus quest. When you do, you'll get a deep-sea diving suit that lets you stay underwater for much longer than usual. Next, restart the Island while you're still wearing the diving suit.

Now, when you start playing the primary quest again, you'll have way more oxygen, and can spend more time exploring the depths! You can even play a little ditty on the piano, as in the picture above.

There's always more to explore on Poptropica, so get out there and dive deep!

Get in gear

We've already told you about the Members-only gear pack in the Poptropica Store that's jam-packed with cool S.O.S. Island stuff, like the sonar power:


Because you can take your gear to any Island on Poptropica, you won't find these items in your S.O.S. Island inventory. Instead, use the drop down menu to access your "store items." Your S.O.S. gear will be there, at the end of the line.

Happy fishing!

Get ready for kick-off!

In honor of the big game this weekend, we've moved one of our classic costumes to the front of the Poptropica Store.

No matter who wins on Sunday, your outfit will be championship caliber when you don these duds!

The American Football Player costume can be costumized in your choice of four colors.Why would you want a blue helmet, though? Silver is MUCH better!
