Sky Dive

Sky Dive is one of Poptropica’s multiplayer games. It’s a kind of racing game where the objective is to jump down from a cloud and land on the ground below safely, but getting there faster than your opponent. It’s similar to the Miniclip game Base Jumping. Here’s an example of what the Sky Dive game card looks like:

Starting the Game

To start a game of Sky Dive, first head over to the nearest multiplayer room. Click on the person you wish to battle. Choose the option “Battle”, and a list of games will show up. Click on “Sky Dive”, which is the fifth game listed, between Paint War and Hoops. The other player will be given the choices “Sure!” or “No, thank you!”. If they choose “Sure!”, the game will begin, but if they say “No, thank you!” or don’t answer you, you’ll need to find someone else to play with you.

How to Play

Your goal is to safely reach the ground before your opponent.

After the signal to go is given, click once to jump, then click again when you’re ready to open your parachute. The first one to get three points wins!

Gameplay

The two players will be standing on a cloud at the start of the game, waiting for the Go signal. You can’t jump before the signal is given, because that will count as a False Start and your opponent will easily win the round. As soon as the words under the cloud say “GO!”, the players click to jump down.

Since the jumpdown goes really fast, you’d probably get hurt if you fell at such a great speed. That’s why there are parachutes: when you think you’re getting near the end, click again to open up your parachute and you’ll float slowly, but safely, down.

Point System

The instructions for Sky Dive say, “The first one to get three points wins!” In this game, the “points” aren’t really the rounds, like most people think, but are more like “sections”. So the three points, or sections, in this game are:

  • Jump from the cloud.
  • Open your parachute.
  • Land safely on the ground.

The last one, “Land safely”, is the main point: the first one to land safely wins. If you land, but fall into a hole, it’s because you used your parachute too late, which means it doesn’t count even if you got there before your opponent did.

Rounds

You may also have noticed the word “rounds” in this guide. One “round” in Sky Dive means one falling-down session. After every falling-down session, a winner is announced. After the winner announcement, there is a button that says “Play Again”. If you click on it, you can play it again, causing another “round” to start.

In this picture, Player 2 (right) did not land safely. Since Player 1 (left) did land safely, he automatically wins the round. If both players don’t land safely, or if both players have a False Start in the same round, the game is tied. If one of the players had a False Start, but the other player didn’t land safely, it is also a tie.

Player Tips

  • By SmockersA good way to win is to descend from the cloud as usual. But as you descend, if you see any hint of dark blue (from the mountains) or green (from the treetop), activate your parachute. It will usually end up as you activating your parachute last, thus causing you to win. Hey, it works for me. :D
  • By Calm EagleCome down from the cloud as usual but try to get off the cloud before your opponent. Once in the air, wait til your opponent opens his parachute. As soon as he gets it open, you can open your parachute. Make sure you open your parachute before you get to the tree. If done right, you should get on the ground first!
  • By PopularthunderActivate your parachute once you see the top of the tree.
  • By Cool Panda:
    1. Jump off quickly.
    2. Before you jump, watch out because you don’t want to make a false start. Sometimes when you make it too slowly, or sometimes too fast, you might already lose at this point.
    3. Don’t try to open parcute too quickly.
      The parachute will slow you down too soon. Usually, you might lose unless you have a great amount of luck and your opponent fails to land.
    4. Great place to land.
      The safest and best place to open your parachute would be between the mountain and the treetop. If you go too near the land, you may not land safely.
  • By Silverwolf1: ALWAYS keep your hand on the left mouse button.
  • By Strange Joker: Timing is everything! Make sure to open your parachute at the precise moment.Open it too early and you’ll fall too slow, giving you opponent the upper hand. If you open it too late, you’ll fall and crash.
  • By Zany Dragon: ALWAYS keep your mouse at the ready. Wait as patiently as possible for the words to say GO! then click. Make sure it’s not a moment too soon. Keep an eye on your player and the screen to make sure you activate your parachute at the right time: not too soon, not too late. (The parachute can slow you down if you do it too soon.) What I do is click when I see the treetop.
  • By Mall Manager ClownSometimes the parachutes will open late, so try to open it just when the sky gets whitish. This happened to me several times!
  • By Gentle Spinner: Once your Poptropican is on level with the tree, press and hold the mouse. If you hold the mouse, you basically lose all speed. The more you play with this tip, you will find yourself wanting to descending lower and lower before you let your parachute open.

      Tip: Once your Poptropican is on level with the tree, press and hold the mouse. If you hold the mouse. you basically lose all speed. The more you play with this tip, you will find yourself wanting to descending lower and lower before you let your parachute open. Its the best tip out there. I’ve only lost about 10 times since I made my account, and I’ve been playing for 3 years.

  4. I guess I can give a tip. ^^ A good way to win is to descend from the cloud as usual.

  21. Cool Panda says:

    There are tips for winning the game.
    1. Jump of quickly.
    Before you jump, watch out if you don’t want to make a false start. Some time make it slowly, and sometimes too fast that you already ose at this part,
    2. Don’t try to open parcute so fast.
    It’s is too slow. You usually lose unless you have a great luck that the other player fail to land.
    3. Great place to land.
    It the safest and quickest to open your parcite between the mountain and the treetop. sometimes you might not land safely if you go to near the land.

  22. popularthunder says:

    Can you please put this tip up there? “Activate your Parachute once you see the top of the tree” Thank Phb and have a nice day

  23. I play skydive way too much :P My record is 703-54

  24. Sky Dive is awesome! My favourite game after Pathwise!

  25. Speedy Snowball says:

    Here’s a tip :

    While falling without the parachute keep your hand on your mouse.When you are near the tree and your opponent is behind , click and you will land without losing.

  26. I have a tip:

    Timing is everything! Make sure to open your parachute at the precise moment.Open it too early and you’ll fall too slow, giving you opponent the upper hand. If you open it too late, you’ll fall and crash.

    Hijuyo: Nice tip! ;)

  27. This is my best game, so good luck to everyone! Here are a few tips for you guys:
    ALWAYS keep your mouse at the ready. Wait as patiently as possible for the words to say GO! then click. Make sure it’s not a moment too soon. Keep an eye on your player and the screen to make sure you activate your parachute at the right time: not too soon, not too late.(The parachute can slow you down if you do it too soon.) What I do is click when I see the treetop.

  28. Incredible Owl says:

    I’ve got 367 wins and 36 losses lol. not bragging or anything… lol

  29. Short Hero says:

    TIP!!!
    When your character’s feet are level with the tree, open your parachute. You should open with inches to spare. :lol: :mrgreen: :D

  30. Did anyone notice that they changed the game? I used to be able to HALO to the extreme, but now the parachute opening has a delay. Oh well.

  31. Barefoot Sun says:

    This is a good tip. When you see the word, “GO!” you click on the cloud you start on, then put out your parachute about 3 to 4 seconds before you hit the ground. Do that and you will probably win.

  32. Barefoot Sun says:

    I love this game too and none of you will believe my status on this game!!!

    Wins: 231
    Losses: 46

    I’ve never won a poptropica multiplayer game that many times!!!

  33. Weespotty says:

    My tip is if you fail to jump off the cloud first, Don’t worry! The other player may be waiting for you to get out your parachute. Therefore, Making the hole. Make sure if the other player is trying that is to get the parachute out at the moutain/treetop. It will be too late to get the other players parachute out.

    You win, the end.

  34. i won 128 times and i lost 64 times

  35. I’ve won 274 and lost 44.

  36. Quiet Eel says:

    I could beat anyone😊😊😊

  37. Kitty-Pity, though I will always go with ''Lily'' after this comment says:

    Look, whenever I play this Sky-Dive-ey-thingi, when ”Go!” appears, my opponent starts falling first, even if I was faster and rightfully first to fall.
    Because of that, I just can’t win! So far, I have had 1 win and 129 loses.
    Can I do anything?

    • Since your opponent only started falling after “Go!”, it probably means that he was just a bit faster than you in clicking, even if it seems like you had been really quick. You could still have a chance to win by releasing the parachute at just the right time, or if your opponent forgets to activate his parachute.

  38. ILOVESKYDIVE!

  39. If you don’t open your parachute you get smacked in to the ground with a Poptropican shaped right?

  40. The first time I played this i didnt know to click to open the parachute and I went thru the ground. :lol:

  41. Tip:Sometimes the parachutes will open late,so try to open it just when the sky gets whitish.This happened to me several times!

    Slanted Fish: Thanks; tip added. :)

  42. hatersloveme4897 says:

  45. george bob jones the third says:

    try this it is sooooooo funny!

    1. ask a person to play sky dive/accept their request to play sky dive
    2. wait for the thing to say “GO”
    3. click the X on the game (to exit) super fast it is too funny to see their reaction

    lol

  46. IcyFoxPoptropica says:

    Wins: 56
    Losses: 32
    I started to get really good at this game the more I played. My sister isn’t good at these battle-games so I play with her in a multiverse room and I always win the games I’m good at(Paint War, Sky Dive, and Star Link) I’m not very good at the others and one of them I haven’t even played before.
