Poptropica in the palm of your hand

We have a sneaking suspicion that some of you have recently acquired brand-new tablets, smartphones, or other devices. If you're looking for some Poptropica goodies to use with your new toys, look no further!

For any iOS device you may have, check out Poptropica: Forgotten Islands. It's a new and unique Poptropica game from Ubisoft with several Islands to explore, an upgradable blimp, and tons of costume pieces. There's even a new winter-themed costume pack available. And it's all included in the purchase price! No microtransactions, no nickel-and-diming. Just hours of great gameplay for one low price.

And don't forget about the Poptropica Tips & Tricks app, available free for both iOS and Android. This app features guides for many of your favorite Islands, including Virus Hunter Island, and is frequently updated. This is the only official Poptropica help app available for your device!

In the new year, you can expect even more Poptropica action to use on your mobile device. But now we're getting ahead of ourselves...

Happy holidays from Poptropica!

Poptropicans, as we usually do this time of year, we're going to go a little quiet for the holidays. That doesn't mean there isn't plenty for you to see and do on Poptropica!

Why, Mocktropica is barely a day old at this point. If you're a Member, you could be playing it right this very second. If not, you could become a Member and play it -- and get your exclusive Mocktropica items in the Poptropica store.

Of course, there's plenty else to enjoy on Poptropica. You could play the updated and improved Time-Tangled Island, 24 Carrot Island, and Poptropolis Games, or any one of the other 35 Islands that are absolutely free for all to play.

We won't be completely silent over the next couple of weeks, but we would like to take this time to wish each and all of you a happy holiday season. Thank you for playing Poptropica!

What is Poptropica?

Of course you know what Poptropica is. You're smart, well-informed, and (did we mention?) a snappy dresser. But not everyone has the inside scoop the way you do. Maybe you've tried to explain Poptropica to a teacher or a parent or a friend, and you just weren't sure how to do it.

That's why we created the video above. In only a minute and a half, it explains everything that's great about Poptropica. So the next time you're at a loss for how to tell someone about us, you can just show them this video!

Don't miss your chance to help create a Poptropica Island!

Sure, it's a hectic time right now. There's a new Island coming out, we're in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle, interns are getting fired left and right -- but don't let one very important thing get away from you. There is only about a week left for you to submit your entry in the "Create Your Dream Island" contest!

One lucky winner will have their Island idea turned into a reality in 2014. Entries must be postmarked by December 24 -- that's a week from tomorrow! -- and received by December 31 -- that's two weeks from tomorrow! -- in order to be eligible.

We know you're busy, but if you're sitting on a winning idea we would hate to miss out. Remember, you can get an official entry form inside your copy of the Island Creator Kit, or download one for free from our friends at Penguin.

There's still time for you to make your dream Island into a reality, but not for long!

When can you play Mocktropica?

Big news today, Poptropicans! But first, a little housekeeping.

We're not terribly sad to tell you that Gamer Guy has been relieved of his position as a Poptropica intern. We could forgive the poor spelling and the atrocious grammar, but we simply couldn't tolerate his promoting a competing website -- especially one as crass and as cynically conceived as this "Mega Fighting Bots" nonsense. This does mean that I don't have anybody to bring me coffee anymore, but those are the breaks.

The good thing is that this blog is once again 100% focused on bringing you the latest news about Poptropica. And this is huge news!

We are happy to announce that Early Access to Mocktropica will be available on Thursday, December 19! 

Poptropica Members will be able to play the full quest. Non-Members will have access to a limited demo until Mocktropica becomes available to everyone on January 16, 2014.

We hope you like Mocktropica. It's funny and strange and not quite like anything we've done before. Don't wait until next year to play it. Become a Member today so that you can play Mocktropica next Thursday!

Mocktropica "Unfinished" costume now available!

alright so usually black widow would be the one to tell you this but shes busy so i get to tell u that theres this new costume in the poptropica store. its called "unfinished" and it looks like ur wearing a costume that wasnt finished so the name makes sense but idk i dont get it.

the costume is available to poptropica members. u can get membership today to get this costume and also the glitch power from last week.

k i dont think any of the poptropica creators are gonna read this far so time 4 some real talk.

i know u come here to read about poptropica but its time somebody expanded ur mind. im talking about REAL games, the kind u need skills to play. NO NOOBS ALLOWED lol

anyways i got the inside scoop on this new game called mega fighting bots. its pretty much the best. u play as a killer robot and u fight other killer robots and try to smash em to pieces. best of all its SUPER hard and u need crazy skills to win. ill be honest if u cant beat this game then ur not a real gamer, no offense.

captain crawface and the other creators were trying to tell me that poptropica is great bc it has a storyline but i like the story in mfb better. ur a robot and ur fighting other robots. there can be only 1. U GOT MY ATTENTION MFB!!

The new and improved Time-Tangled Island is now available!

Hey Poptropicans, Captain Crawfish here. Things are going bonkers around Poptropica! Bugs, glitches, errors -- and that's just my email inbox. It's so crazy that I'm handing over the reins of the Creators' blog to our intern, who insists on being known as, er, "Gamer Guy." Try not to let him wreck the place.

yo WASSUP poptropicans! gamer guy here ready to give u the hottest poptropica news and the freshest takes on the world of gaming.

a little bout me: i love 2 game, i game 24/7, and im probably the best gamer u know lol!

anyways captain crawface wanted me to tell you that the new and improved time-tangled island is now available for everyone to play in poptropica. he said to say it has music and sfx but like most games have those things so i dunno y this is so great.

its not really my thing, no shooting aliens or racing cars or fighting robots or anything like that. i prefer online games where u can fight other people and let em know that ur better then them. but maybe u would like it.

u can visit poptropica now to play the new and improved time-tangled island!
