Poptropica… cartoons?

Hey guys, BT here to share with you something interesting the Creators have been working on. Based on their blog post, it’s going to be a feature for the app with original videos, called Poptropica TV! According to a tweet by Poptropica, it’s coming out next week to the app.

Earlier today on their YouTube channel, the Creators released two new videos! One is a cartoon animation narrated by Shark Guy (glad to see ya back, buddy!) about what sharks are actually like:

At the end of the shark video, the seal man at the end says “Tuna in next week!” There’s no official word yet, but it sounds like these short silly cartoons may be a weekly thing!

The second video is a Draw My Life of everyone’s favorite Mega Fighting Bots geek and Poptropica intern, Gamer Guy! Check it out:

Poptropica has been dropping hints about cartoon animations for a while now via Twitter, and it looks like they were about webtoons with voice acting such as these. What do you think of this first dose? I’m looking forward to what else this’ll bring!

The PHB’s Total-ly-not-a-Failure Timmy Failure Island Guide is now up!

Hey guys, BT here to let you all know that Timmy Failure Island is now open for members for Early Access! As for you non-members out there, don’t worry, there’s a demo available – plus, the island releases to the public on October 6th (strangely, a Tuesday) according to Poptropica’s Twitter!

The written walkthrough with pictures is now available, written by yours truly, but if you prefer a video walkthrough from everyone’s favorite pirate snack, Captain Crawfish, here it is!

This island was a lot of fun for me. There was one moment that pretty much… stole the show for me; it made the whole island. I give props – I didn’t know much about Timmy Failure, and I was able to learn a bit from this island about who the characters were before I met them. This is my favorite sponsored island with the drawing style of the original source.

Well, in the meantime, here’s my ranking:

Yay me! XD

Okay you guys, have fun with Timmy Failure! And to those having trouble, don’t worry! We have a written walkthrough right here on the Poptropica Help Blog!

PHB Sunday Special: Revisiting the Islands

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and I’m here with this little post to self-advertise tell you guys, in a quick little post, about my YouTube series, Revisiting the Islands.

Revisiting the Islands is about me, guided only by my memory of the island, revisiting past islands for nostalgia’s sake. Add in some occasional voice acting, some instances of snark, a few raging moments, and a few idiot moments, and there you go- Revisiting the Islands in a nutshell.

So far, I have uploaded videos for the first nine islands in the game: Early Poptropica – Astro-Knights, and I have Counterfeit Island and Reality TV Island finished recording and I’m planning to upload soon.

Below is my YouTube playlist of all my RtI series:

Besides RtI, I’ve also recorded my first impressions with new islands as I play through them for the first time. These are usually uploaded the same day that new island is released. So far, I’ve done first impressions of Spoiler Alert, and then Reign of Omegon – Careful What You Wish For.*

*Please note that with Spoiler Alert, I recorded it with my iPad, I forgot to record Galactic Hot Dogs and Lair of Thieves, and up until after Mystery of the Map, I had a really bad microphone from my laptop.

So, here is a link to my Youtube channel, and if you have a YouTube account, subscribe to me if you want! :)

This had been a self-advertisement report on a YouTube series I’ve been working on.

Timmy Failure Island is coming this September!

Hey guys, BT here to try and bring in some good news after the downer of the 7 sponsored members-only islands news.

Timmy Failure Island is officially announced, in, I shall say, in a unique way. Instead of the standard YouTube trailer, we’re given a short gif revealing an approximate release month for the island: September 2015.

There is an emphasis on the fact that this island is going to be in full color, similar to how Wimpy Boardwalk was advertised to be (as opposed to Wimpy Wonderland). Captain Crawfish also notes to keep an eye out for more “news, giveaways, and other great stuff” on the Creators’ Blog. I’m particularly curious about the giveaway part.

Although I have never personally read the series, I’m still semi-curious. HPuterpop told me it was about a kid who solves mysteries. I can see that working in a Poptropican environment. Can’t judge a book by its cover, so I’m willing to give this island a chance.

While we wait till September, please enjoy what I assume to be the product a bored Creator who must’ve been playing Silent Hill lately. And then decided to show a Poptropican version of a gore-free Pyramid Head off on the Daily Pop because why not.

Realms update: pixies, hammer abilities, weather & more!

realms promotional

Hey guys, BT here speaking from the newly updated Poptropica Realms. I make this post for you guys to get the scoop on the new updates and features!

Firstly, you can get a free Realms Builder costume with the promo code GOREALMS. But moving on – as you can see here, I’ve gotten myself into quite a bit of a pickle – in the form of these Twilight Pixies.

freaking fairies

They’re almost like the dryads from Twisted Thicket – except even more freaking annoying! They like to swarm you and take away 10 Poptanium pieces per hit in the night and the first few minutes of sunrise. As a result, you’re forced to either try to combat them with your hammer, or do what I did and make a little hidey-hole to keep away from them if a lot are looking at once. Sometimes, if they do steal your Poptanium, and if you’re quick enough, you can hit them with your hammer while they are fleeing and you can get the stolen Poptanium back!  These new additions can be pretty tricky, so watch out for them!

After being able to dodge the pixies by waiting for day time to come, I decided to go to a land realm to mine to make up for the Poptanium the pixies stole. Luckily, I reached level 5 so I was able to destroy the ground via Ground Pound below me much quicker- and I hope to gain more hammer abilities as I continue to level up – the Hammarang and the Super Jump.

ground pound

However, as I was going through my day pounding the ground and being careful to avoid water and lava, a 10 second rain storm came and went – weather had been added to Realms, and I had the misfortune of forgetting to bring an umbrella.

Thirty seconds passed and another rainstorm hit, this time, with thunder in the background – yet no sign of lightning. Sheesh, we’re in such a rainy place, aren’t we?

Also, the snow realm has well, snow, the sand realm has sandstorms, the swamp biome has acid rain, and the lunar biome has… meteors. So yeah, better have some kind of safe spot for the latter two.

rain weather

After the rain came and went, dusk was beginning to fall, and I knew that the Twilight Pixies would return again and try to take my Poptanium away. As I built my shelter underneath the ground, I leveled up, and I was greeted by this random Viking guy.

He’s been tutoring me on things that I somewhat already knew from my experience with Poptropica Land, along with advice to help with the new updates. I don’t know who this is or where he came from. I believe he was the original master creator but I don’t think I’ve leveled up high enough to confirm it. However, I did see someone wear his cap so I’m guessing he is the master creator, and his costume is the reward for reaching level 15.

After a bit, I did get hungry so I got out my hammer and formed an apple at the price of 1 poptanium piece. I found that I could now eat the apple – and in fact, any food- and it would regenerate my health quicker – perfect for the times I’d accidentally fall into lava! There are also more interactive props to play around with, so explore all the props you can!


So with these new updates to Realms, the worlds has grown more diverse and dangerous, adding on new challenges and objectives as you create and destroy the worlds around you. Have fun, Poptropicans!

BT out. ;)
