Escape from Pelican Rock for All, Missing Sneak Peeks, & More

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and there’s a bit to talk about! Read on to find out the top 10 finishers of Escape from Pelican Rock, missing sneak peeks, and more.


EPR RobberyEscape from Pelican Rock for All

Escape from Pelican Rock was released to everyone on December 30th! So if you’re a non-Member or Member, you can play it anytime you want. I also wanted to do what I used to and highlight the first 10 finishers of EPR Island, so here they are in a slideshow:

It looks like the Pathfinders won this time. There’s definitely no bias here (go Seraphim!) 😉

Sneak Peeks

The fascinating thing about the sneak peeks recently is that some have gone missing, including “Deplane” and “Sack Lunch.” They’re no longer in the Daily Pop, but they are still in the files with their assigned date. However, one of the sneak peeks isn’t even in the files, and that’s the “In the Club” photo. It does have its description and name, though, showing that is was once there. If you go to the Daily Pop and look through the sneak peeks, there will be a plain blue screen between “Fireside Chat” and Light Show,” which is where it once was. Maybe the Creators don’t want them to be seen yet? Either way, it’s odd.

Anyway, there have been quite a lot of jungle and plane sneak peeks on the Daily Pop. They definitely seem related, which is mainly due to one specific sneak peek that has both the jungle theme and a plane. Here they are:

They all seem connected, but the sneak peek with the characters has one named “Thelma or Louise,” based off the movie Thelma and Louise released in 1991. It may be just an easter egg for people who know the movie, but I thought it was interesting. 😛 Some other characters don’t seem to fit either, like “Old Pro” and “Red Barbarian.”

Happy New Year’s!

Happy New Year'sI think I can say for all of us that we wish you a Happy New Year’s! Hopefully this year I’ll be able to post more and be more active in the community, which is probably my New Year’s resolution. I also need to catch up on my island medallions…hmm… What’s your resolution?

On a completely different note, the week 5 Island Hopper winners have been announced!

Congrats to all the winners! For the rest of you, remember that time is running out for the sweepstakes, so get hopping!

Oh, but that’s not all Poptropicans! There has also been an awesome app update!

That’s all the Poptropica news for now, but be sure to visit the Daily Pop and the Creators’ Twitter for even more Poptropica info! 🙂

Sweepstakes, Realms, & More!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and it looks like we have a lot to update on. Because of finals, I haven’t had much time to be on, but I’m back! From Island Hopper Sweepstakes winners to appdates, there’s a ton of information to catch up on, so here we go!


Island Hopper Sweepstakes Winners

We’re now on week 4 of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes, but we still have to cover weeks 1-3. So, if you would like to know the winners who receive a one-month Membership, they are (with the week as a caption)…

Remarkable Realms

Since the Creators haven’t posted a Poptropican’s Realm in a while, they decided to highlight quite an extravagant one on the Poptropica Creator’s Blog, which you can visit through the code 72pyj.

Esador City

The Realm is called “Esador City,” and it was made by Loud Chicken. It really looks amazing; congrats on your mention!

Escape from Pelican Rock

Escape from Pelican Rock is now available to Members only! Of course, the Creators have reminded us to view the live map of finishers and watch their famous walkthrough video:

Wonderful Winter Appdates

Winter LogoThe Creators have gotten into the winter groove by updating their app logo, along with a free wintery costume pack — including hats, scarves, and sweaters — and a bundle that includes Jack or Jill Frost, a holiday pet follower, and a Yeti costume  for 99 cents. As a little bonus, they also released a free version of Escape from Pelican Rock. So if you’re not patient enough to wait for the release online, you can head over to the app and download it now!

I think that’s about it, but happy holidays! You’ve probably noticed our own winter-themed decor (sorry if you’re in the southern hemisphere 😛 ). What do you think? Hopefully I’ll be posting more soon, too!

Escape from Pelican Rock Coming Soon!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, and it looks like the long-talked-about island, Escape from Pelican Rock, now has its own info page! I’ll be including some details about the Island TrailerPoster, and Gold Card, among other exciting info. Anyway, let’s get started! :mrgreen:


Escape From Pelican RockThe Creators have released Escape from Pelican Rock’s page, and I must admit, it looks and sounds pretty cool. You’re framed for a crime, and you have to escape from the maximum security prison? Seems like a hefty job to me! Although, here’s the full description:

Pelican Rock is the toughest prison ever built. And after you’re framed for a crime you didn’t commit, it’s your new home! Use your wits to devise an escape plan, and your nerve to pull it off. But getting out is just the beginning — because the real criminal is still out there!

BurglarHmm, two in one! Escaping the prison and finding the real criminal! Although, did the burglar remind anyone else of the one from Night Watch? I put a little comparison to the right. But this one has shoes! *gasp* Along with the description, Poptropica has an awesome trailer:

Personally, I liked the background music, but I didn’t think it went very well with the theme… That’s just me, though. As always, a poster came along with it, which you can download here, but this is what it looks like:

Escape from Pelican Rock Poster

Escapee Dr. HareNext, the awaited Gold Card…Escapee Dr. Hare! What? Dr. Hare? I didn’t think he would be in this island.. Was he kept here before he went to 24 Carrot? Was he discovered back in space and put in the prison? Did he swim to another island? So many questions with so few answers…

Lastly, there are some sneak peeks  on the page — four, to be exact — to keep your wheels turning until the island’s release. It looks like we get a shot of the island besides the prison, the cells inside the prison, and what it looks like from the outside:

I haven’t really been too interested in any of the recent islands, but this one seems really fun! 😀 I love the idea of escaping a prison, especially when you’ve been innocent the whole time. What do you think? Comment below!

Timmy Failure for All, Photo Booth Updates, & Character Change!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, with a ton of news! I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I’m ready for action. I’ll include some information about Timmy Failure, The Photo Booth Halloween update, and a character change on Home Island!


Timmy Failure Releasing TuesdayTimmy Failure Wallpaper

Yep, you read that right! If you haven’t kept up recently with Poptropica news, then you’d probably want to know that Timmy Failure Island releases to everyone on Tuesday, which is tomorrow (or today for some of you)! A bit weird of a day to release it, but it probably works for some people. 😛

When danger lurks, and criminals hide around every corner, you need the best detective money can buy. That detective is not Timmy Failure — but don’t try to tell him that. You’re about to come face to face with the craziest cast of characters ever to appear on a Poptropica Island. Trying to solve this mystery is only the beginning!

Spooktacular Photo Booth Updates

Even though it’s only the beginning of October, Poptropica seems ready for Halloween to come with some spooky — and awesome — Halloween additions to the Photo Booth on Home Island! This includes new backgrounds, props, and stickers. Here are the premade templates for examples of what they added:

Those are pretty cool, but I think this one is even cooler… Wouldn’t you agree?

Halloween - SW

Silver (Cat?) saves the day!

A New Character for Poptropica Shop

A little minor detail is that the Shop building on Home Island now has a new NPC in front of the store. They change to the gender the character is, so if your Poptropica is a girl, it’ll be a girl, and if your Poptropican is a boy, it’ll be a boy. They both have some style, and here’s a couple of photos for proof:

That’s about it! Maybe it’s only me, but I am super excited for Halloween! Since I’m not exactly allowed to dress-up anymore, I’ll probably be customizing my character pretty soon. Tell us in the comments what you want to be for Halloween. :mrgreen: Anyway, have fun!

Timmy Failure Island Prizes Week 2 & Hub Island

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, with some information on this week’s prize until next Thursday, and the new Hub Island! I’ll be giving an overview of Hub Island, but I’ll also give a theory I have about it, which may be completely wishful thinking, or it may lead somewhere.


Polar Bear CostumePolar Bear Costume

As said in Brave Sky’s post, every Thursday until Timmy Failure Island’s release (September 17th), you can go on Timmy Failure Island and talk to Timmy to get a prize! This week’s prize is a Polar Bear Gold Card, which you can see to the right.

Hub/Home Island Brief Overview & Theory

Note: this is a brief description and the island guide will be coming soon, along with a guide of Poptropica.

Hub Island Tutorial GuyJust the other day, out of nowhere, Hub Island, or Home Island, was added to the map! Basically, the tutorial section is similar to the beginning island on Poptropica Adventures. You go into the tutorial by talking to the Poptropican in the pilot costume on the bridge.

Wrench LadyYou’ll then be taken to a tutorial, where you find 8 shards scattered throughout the area to form a medallion. Of course, the medallion is yours! While there, you’ll meet a Poptropican that will show you how to customize your character by giving her a wrench.

Outside of the tutorial, you can also enter three buildings, one called “New You” that lets you randomize costumes you can wear and colorize your skin and hair (which didn’t stay for me), another that when entered takes you to the Poptropica Shop, and the last one called “Arcade,” letting you go into the island’s Common Room:
