Classic Islands are Baaaaaacccckkkk!


Howdy Poptropicans!

A LOT of you have been asking us when the classic islands are coming back. Seriously, you all ask this question a lot, a lot, a lot. 

The team is still busy converting all the islands for the new version of Poptropica, but until that's done, we figured we'd let you play the old islands while Flash is still available! 

These islands haven't been worked on in a loooong time. They use really old game technology (ActionScript 2!) and are sometimes a little buggy. But we know how hard things are right now and that your summer isn't what you were expecting, so we brought them back! 


They won't be available forever since Flash is going away at the end of this year, but if you're a member you can play them for as long as they are playable. Look for Early Poptropica on the map, enter your login, and take a trip down memory lane!

Let us know in the comments which classic island you want to see converted!

  1. I want to see Cryptids, Spy, or Super Power converted first. Those ones are the most nostalgic to me.

  2. You better allow non-members to play them. The worst thing for a Poptropica fan is to have the old islands back, but locked behind a paywall. (This is possibly the worst decision Poptropica has EVER made!)

    1. i know right it's soooooooooooooo dumb you should allow it for non members, also you should convert mystery train over it was one of my favorites along with wild west

  4. Thank you for adding the old islands back! Will these old islands be available for non-members in the future, or is it only accessible for members?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Poptropica creators, can you make Early Poptropica and the other old islands that are coming for free? Thank you all if you do!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Why can only members play them? Also is there anyway they can be converted to new poptropica?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm a bit sad they are only available for members. Will it ever be available to free players in the flash port?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am glad you made these available again! I have many great old memories playing these islands. It is unfortunate that these are members only. It makes sense though, because although this game has been free to play in the past it can't have been free to make. I don't have membership right now, so some islands I would like to see converted in the future are Zomberry, Skullduggery, Mystery Train, Cryptids, and Astro Knights. I hope maybe someday the islands will be available again for non-members too :)

  9. I'd love to see all of them converted, but mainly I'd love to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(my favorite) as well as Red Dragon (Magic Treehouse, Mystery Train, and both Wimpy Kid Islands. Thanks for making them available. I've been playing poptropica for nine years (I'm a teen now) so all of the islands are nostalgic for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm not happy. It's only for members, so I can't play it. >:(

    ReplyDelete
  11. I want them all to be converted and also I want you to go back to making all islands free but members get the early access like before because not everyone can afford a membership

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why did you guys made them for members only? I've been playing poptropica for around 5 years, and I can't afford to pay 3.99 a month, even if I could I wouldn't. Please make them available for everyone so we can all "take a walk down memory lane" and enjoy it while it lasts.

    ReplyDelete
  13. are the classic islands really going to be locked behind a membership?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oooh! I’m gonna suggest converting Astro Knights first- after all, one of the most popular villains is from that island, and the concept of it was awesome. I’m also going to suggest Skullduggery, just because that always has been a very replayable island.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why are the old islands members only?

    ReplyDelete
  16. would love to see cryptids converted!

    ReplyDelete
  17. but its for only members.. and im not one

    ReplyDelete
  18. So many great islands, would you guys have any partial feelings to starting with a few islands and working up to the rest of them?

    You could tell all of them had so much love and work put into them. You could go as far as saying that you helped build a childhood that kept bringing people back even a decade later. It would be a shame to lose them. Any of them.

    As for what islands
    Vampires curse, Ghost Story
    Skullduggery, Wild West, Cryptids, Counterfit
    Super Power, Nabooti, and Spy island

    also if possible... Twisted Thicket was such an amazing one too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I WANT WILD WEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hey! I tried playing the old islands but ive found theres no way to restart them so I cant do it from the beginning?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Will you accept these in-game credits as payment? XD (joke)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lunar Colony!! I miss it so much, it was always my favorite :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. :( Summer has been hard on everyone, not just members...

    ReplyDelete
  24. bring back super villin island!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Make them all non-members! This isn't fair!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This isn't fair! Make them all non-members!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Really sad that they're only for members. :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. finally i can play my favorite islands!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Please convert Astroknights!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Convert Astro Knights Island please.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Poptropica team! I'd just like to give a big thanks to everyone working on converting this fantastic game to the new system!! I'm so, so excited to play it. How much longer do you think until it's ready for release? I'm definitely willing to wait! :D
    Thanks again!

    - Abby

  34. Thank you guys sooooooooooo much!! I am sorry for doubting your team's true and honest effort.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Of course they're only available for members! Got my hopes up there for a second, but I shouldn't be surprised. Here's to hoping you have mercy on those of us who aren't able to get a membership :|

    ReplyDelete
  36. please convert mystery train or back lot I love those!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is NOT fair! It should not be members only!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Will non members be able to access the classic islands? also I'd like to have reality tv converted

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, I am still unable to find the islands.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm upset. It's not fair that non-members can't access to it. >:(

    ReplyDelete
  41. why would you make it only for members!!! i morned losing those islands when you took them off now your denying me of the islands

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey, can You make half of them free, please? As a person with no debit card, I can't exactly get membership. :(

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hello! Is there anyway you can make the old islands free?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I cant find them! Do you have to have access to your old account?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great, I haven't completed all of the classic maps yet so this is a great feature. Problem is that I don't have membership. Forcing people to pay so that they can go back to their childhood islands is heartbreaking. My idea would to keep these open for everyone but keep the bonus missions member only.

    ReplyDelete
  46. its really sad that people without membership cant play them

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why are they all members only.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wait so are classic islands going to be members only???

    ReplyDelete
  49. Pardon my asking but why is Early Poptropica only available for Members?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like all of them. But Ghost Story and Game show are some of my favorites. I would love to see those come back.��

    ReplyDelete
  51. it would be nice to play all the original islands without having to pay money. It's unfair to those who can't be members

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'd love it if you converted Ghost Story Island. That was my favorite island. :D

    ReplyDelete
  53. Is this only for people with membership?? I really wanted to play Vampires curse

    ReplyDelete
  54. Why not let the people who don't have memberships play? Especially If y'all are saying that it will only be available for a few month. Like Really?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Will the classic islands be available for non members? also I'd like to see reality tv concerted

    ReplyDelete
  56. Everyone is having a hard time this summer, not just everyone. These islands should be for everyone to be able to play.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yaaaasssss thank you so much! (I'm a little disappointed I have to get a membership to do some of the classics, but still it's great!) :D
    -K

    ReplyDelete
  58. how come i don't see red dragon island or mystery train on my map?

    ReplyDelete
  59. When you click from screen to screen on the old islands, it puts you in the middle of the next screen. So in skullduggery, you can't get the doubloon under the bridge and therefore can't get past the beginning of the island. Is there a way to fix this bug? Skullduggery was my favorite island so this is really a bummer

    ReplyDelete
  60. wait why are only members allowed to play the classic islands? most of them were free to play before this

    ReplyDelete
  61. So excited these are back!! Thank you for filling my childhood with adventure and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Well, um, I don't think this is fair that only member can play in the classic islands... I think and pretty sure that people that don't have member also want play in the classic islands.
    I remember that I really like to play in these islands, and when they was removed, I really was sad.
    I think that everyone need to play in these island- the new people and the old.
    (The newcomers don't even know the fun, the adventure and the joy of the classic islands!)
    Please, let us, all of us, have the pleasure of playing in these islands one more time before it's be too late.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The problem with this is that you have to pay to play most of the islands. This is not a members get more islands thing, this is a members can actually play the game thing. Yes, they are buggy and built with AS2, but that shouldn't stop people from playing most of the islands.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Can you also later do more old islands and they are available to non members?

    ReplyDelete
  65. twisted thicket, wimpy boardwalk, lunar colony, super villain charlie and the chocolate factory, zomberry, night watch, back lot, and the sound updated islands and monkey wrench and home and snagglemast and all of the islands in poptropica not haxe.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Really Poptropica? More member things? I used to LOVE the old islands, and I was so disapointed when they went away! Now I see you have brought them back, for members. My family CAN NOT afford membership at this time, and I am very mad, I know many people who would not be able to afford it either.

    ReplyDelete
  67. do u have to be a member?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey! so I can't find early Poptropica in the map.. could you help me?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Kinda seems like you just only care about your members, huh :/

    ReplyDelete
  70. I want all the islands converted and when will the islands be available to non-members?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I realllyy wish to try the diary of a whimby kid island, cuz I like the book and i have never experinced it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. All of them! Including all the classic islands that are not on the early map, such as night watch and the chocolate factory

    ReplyDelete
  73. I played all of the classic islands when they were free. Now that they've been re-released, it's locked behind a paywall?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  75. non-members ask too its not fair

    ReplyDelete
  76. super villain island, vampires curse and astroknights are genuinely works of art imo. i miss them greatly and have been playing poptropica for over 11 years. sad to see that they arent truly playable anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Wimpy Boardwalk isn't there

    ReplyDelete
  78. Please make it free for us kids, my family and I can't currently afford a membership because of the pandemic, my mother is at the hospital and I just want to play the old maps back to take my mind off it

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wimpy boardwalk, twsted thicket, zomberry, and night watch!! Really all of them though, I'd love every single one back

    ReplyDelete
  80. Poptropica did F2P players dirty. I was so ready to play Skullduggery again until you guys made it membership only.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I would like to see all of them converted! They were my childhood and I want to play through them again even though I can't afford a membership. Please don't paywall them :(

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm really happy to see the older islands back. Don't have a membership, but will probably get one to play these. I'd like to see Zomberry and Night Watch brought back, as they are my favorites. Maybe also Super Villain Island.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I want ALL of them converted but for members and non-members alike

    ReplyDelete
  84. I MISS OLD ISLANDS!!! but i'm not a member and will never be able to be one. Poptropica, members is not just for money. is it? even members don't want to pay

    ReplyDelete
  85. I feel that Astro Knights, Shark Tooth, and Steamworks should come first

    ReplyDelete
  86. I've been playing Poptropica when I was young, played through tons of the classic islands, and when they were taken away, I quit playing. Now, I have to be a member just to go back to the classic islands?! I waited too long just to be disappointed. Can't you at least make some of the islands for non-members?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Can the new islands be for non members too? I've been playing since I was 9, and would like to play the classic islands again.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Ok guys you see how many people are disappointed right? You see how many people don't want to pay for membership to enjoy nostalgic islands right? You do understand that you're asking people to pay for buggy broken islands?? I'm sorry but I just don't see the reasoning behind this. If this many people don't want to pay for membership, you need to make membership worth buying, and NO I do not mean take originally free stuff and hide it behind a paywall. Make some interesting members only stuff, I mean those bonus missions? Those were cool and a good idea, idk add a premium currency to go alongside Credits, maybe members could use a filtered game chat instead of the bubble chat, members could host parties at their treehouse or bring their friends into exclusive new Multiplayer Islands. Just chucking a couple ideas out there. Good Luck!

  89. im really upset to see i cant play the old islands i was really looking forward to it when i saw this then went to play it and cant because im not a member. you say you understand its hard for people right now and that our summer isnt what we were expecting and yet you make it so only members can play them? its not fair to people without membership please change it so everyone can play

    ReplyDelete
  90. Why are they only available for members, that's not fair

    ReplyDelete
  91. I tried playing Poptropica but I don't see anything new on the map in terms of the classic islands. Am I unable to see them because I'm not a member or something?

    ReplyDelete
  92. I used to love Poptropica so much as a child. I originally discovered the site back in 07 when it first started. I am not only disappointed by your decision to only allow paying members to play the classic islands, but I also am disgusted by the lack of sympathy towards the poorer people in this pandemic, who can not waste money on memberships such as this. I love Poptropica and have continued to play it throughout the years, despite the decrease in content and the increase in paywalls.

    Respectfully I must say, I hope you will change your decision to allow all players to enjoy the classic islands while we still can.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Can you please please please bring back skullduggery and make it a non-member island? It was my favorite island and one of the only ones you could continue to play on after completion.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Please bring back Mystery Train, Night Watch, Realms, Survival 2-5, Mission Atlantis,Escape From Pelican Rock, Monster Carnival, Virus Hunter, Shark Tooth, PoptropiCon 2&3, Mocktropica, Reality TV Original (I like Wild Safari too), Arabian Nights, Poptropolis Games, Shrink Ray, and Mystery of the Map. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  95. This update is really disheartening as a player who has been playing since 2008. It's also not fair to the new members who want to play them as well. I understand that Poptropica is not as big as it used to be anymore, but I fear that Poptropica will end up closing like Club Penguin due to the lack of traffic and the certain items being for members only.

    ReplyDelete
  96. POSTTTTT MOREEEEE PLEASEEEEEE

    ReplyDelete
  97. Really wished you made it free. Poptropica was my childhood and the new worlds are not fun for me. I got so excited and then i realized you needed a membership. My siblings and i were hoping they were gonna come back.

    (also want the old shop back bc i really miss the characters and the haunted mansion.)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Can only members play the old islands??

    ReplyDelete
  99. can you have more of the bonus quest island come back for us on the old map please.

    ReplyDelete
  100. It is so unfair that the old islands are not free !!!!!!!! I have completed 39 islands all of the og islands but still can not play them because I don't have a membership.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I understand it being for members, but not at a time like this. It really isn't the time to fish for money when there is a pandemic going on and people are struggling finically.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Would it be possible to make the classic islands available to everyone? There are a lot of people who can't afford membership, including me. ^^;

    ReplyDelete
  103. Would love to see backlot, night watch, and lunar colony revived.

    ReplyDelete
  104. AnonymousDreamingCatJune 23, 2020 at 4:29 PM

    Please please PLEASE, if you were to update any of them, do reality TV and skullduggery. They were by far the best two islands in the game.

    ReplyDelete

    1. YES! Especially Game Show, Astro-Knights, and Cryptids!

      Delete
    2. To have Counterfit, Super Power, Skullduggery, Cryptids, Astro Knights, Wild West, Reality TV, Mythology, and Spy islands back would give me joy.

      THANK YOU to Poptropica staff for providing a foundation for so many memories and giving me a chance to relive them. I will gladly pay for a membership to play the islands I love one last time...but it sure would be incredible to have them for longer. Whatever happens, thank you again.

  106. Can you please don't put exclusive and rare items in the store? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  107. Greek Mythology!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. These old islands are members only, but why? They should be for everyone if they are brought back in order to give us some entertainment during these troubled times. Just please tell us why. It would be nice if you actually told us why they are members only in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  109. you shouldnt paywall it! people are out of work and dont have the money to pay for a poptropica membership right now. anyway, ghost story, monster carnival, back lot, cryptids, vampires curse, and astro-knights.

    ReplyDelete
  110. All of them!! They are all super fun! Also, when the flash goes away will they be available for everyone soon? Thanks for making a great game!!
