Poptropica Credits, Stats, Store, Stuff and More!

A big WOW!!!

Poptropica Creator Shark Boy has just revealed a major update that will be coming soon. We don’t know a whole lot about it, but here’s what Shark Boy said on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog:

 We’ve been working on a bunch of “super-special” outfits, new abilities, and some other awesome stuff that we will be offering for Poptropica credits. You can earn FREE credits for each island you beat, or you can purchase more credits. Poptropica credits can be used to get some cool stuff from our store. Stay tuned, coming soon!

Looks cool. From SB’s post, we gather this info:

Stats
There will be a new interface called “Stats”. This will have/show:

  • Your character’s Poptropica name (such as Invisible Foot in the picture)
  • A picture of your character’s current look
  • Your battle ranking from playing multiplayer games in chat rooms
  • The number of “Poptropica Credits” you have, and a button to be able to purchase more of these credits.
  • An option to change your account’s password
  • Which island medallions you have
  • Your recent Poptropica activities – whether it’s just logging in or winning/losing a multiplayer game
  • A box telling you what’s happening around Poptropica: the example talks about Astro-Knights coming up!
  • Poptropica Store: you’ll get to spend your credits on cool rock star outfits and more!

Store
There’s also going to be a “Store” tab. So far, this is what we know:

  • Poptropica will be having a store for buying in-game items and powers. The “super-special” costumes they are working on can be bought here, as well as some new abilities (possibly Comic Kid’s new emotes from the many previous sneak peeks?) and other awesome stuff!
  • To shop at the store, you need “Poptropica Credits”, which are going to be Poptropica’s “money”, or their type of currency.
  • Some free credits can be gained from completing island quests.
  • You can purchase more credits, most likely with real-world money, such as American dollars.

Stuff
Lastly, there will be an interface titled “Stuff”. We don’t really know what this is, but maybe it’s a new type of inventory. Maybe all your equipment from Time Tangled, 24 Carrot or whatever island will be moved to this tab. (Just a guess.)

So now we know what the “super-special” outfits were for. At least we get credits for finishing an island too, so even if you aren’t allowed to buy stuff off the Internet, you’ll still get a chance to spend a few. Magic Monster suggests that maybe winning multiplayer games might also get you credits, because they mention winning and losing Soupwords and Balloons in the “Recent Activity” section. However, that could mean we could get credits just for logging in – which is a bit unlikely, but we don’t know for sure. What do you think?

Also, as Incredible Fish noted, you will soon be able to change your Poptropican’s password! So when this update comes, please don’t give away accounts on the Poptropica Talk page (or anywhere else on this site) to the public, or it may become out-of-date very quickly because there are people out there who like to mess up accounts. Other people won’t be able to use most of our Poptropica Talk accounts soon, so enjoy them while you can!

Snapshot Sagas
Vlad encounters a “visitor of mysterious origin” in this next episode of Snapshot Sagas! Check it out:

I had such a relaxing week! I was sipping some coconut milk at the Coconut Cafe and taking in some sun on the tropical Shark Tooth Island beach. My relaxing time didn’t last long however, because I ran into something out of this world on my latest trip to the Coconut Cafe! It was a Poptropican named Striped Hero, but I couldn’t be sure if he was really from Poptropica because I had never seen anything like him before! He was just as friendly as any other Poptropican that I have met, and I was able to take a photo with him, but his origins are still a great mystery to me!

Congratulations Striped Hero! You have been the latest visitor of mysterious origin featured on Snapshot Sagas!

Keep looking for me anytime you visit an island! You could be the next Poptropican (or mysterious visitor) featured on Snapshot Sagas!

Congratulations from the PHB, Striped Hero! And as Cheerful Claw said, we definitely won’t have to worry about them delaying Astro-Knights any longer because they’re acknowledging the fact that the cyborg-face is out. Take a look at The Mechanical Fever news post to learn more about this metallic mask!

    AWESOME! So this is what the creators have been up to…It rocks! Oh, and now, we don’t have to worry about them delaying Astro-Knights, because they’re acknowledging the fact that the cyborg-face is out.

  2. Shifty Shadow says:

    If you look closely, you can see the “inventory” buttons at the top of the screen switched around. The Customizer is in the same spot, but the Map and Items have moved in. The games button looks like it has been removed entirely, so we’ll likely be able to access that info in the ‘credits’ section, which will probably replace it. I can’t really tell what the symbol for that is, but it looks like a star.

  3. ♪Nice Bubbles♫ says:

    Wait does that mean that THIS will come out B-4 AK island cuz if u look closly it says: “Coming thins spring: Astro-Knights island!”
    then it says all that stuff about Poptropica being attacked.
    😕

    ST: No, that just tells you what’s going on in Poptropica. The stuff about Poptropica being attacked is what will happen on AK Island.

  4. Green Seal says:

    It looks cool, but I wish you didn’t have to pay real money for more credits… I know you get some by finishing islands, but still… I won’t be able to pay real money.

  5. UrFellowPoptropican says:

    Well at least we won’t “have” to pay real world money..but I really dislike those websites that give you “upgrades” just cuz’ you give them $$$…As long as we can still earn free credits and the other people don’t get too many more upgrade I’m good with it.

    • clubpenguin4607 says:

      Umm.. didnt you notice but to get credits WITHOUT finishing islands is to pay real world money. 😦 THAT SUCKS ALOT!

  6. Orange Tummy says:

    I think ‘stuff’ is an inventory, except that it will be where your costumes you’ve bought are, and where the abilities are as well, not island inventory.

  7. Sleepy Fox says:

    It’s on! It’s on!! IT’S ON! I got the robot, ninja, knight, and Chinese warrior plus electtrify and colorize! P.S. Sorry about the caps, but the excitement is understandable, right? =-)=-)=-)

  8. tall horse says:

    Yay!!!!! It’s finally on! This is SO awesome! 😀
    I bought costumes for all my accounts. Tall Horse is a robot/geisha, Icy Fish is a Southern belle (and sometimes queen) and Fierce Hawk is Zorro! So cool!!!!
    And it looks like you get 100 credits for every island you complete.

  9. Zade says:

    I used the Store and got a Robin Hood outfit, Colourizer and the Electrify! I also found a metal cheek thing and put that on. My character looks so cool!

  10. Green Seal says:

    I bought the pop star outfit, the girl rock star outfit, and the electrifier.
    I didn’t buy the colorizer because I kinda thought it was a waster of credits (’cause I mean, why buy that when you can just go on the blimp to 24 carrot island or press Ctrl+Shift+S)
    But that’s just me.

  11. lazy lizard says:

    so cool! I love that store the outfits are rock’in! I have the geisha, pop star, rock star, printer portrate,costumizer and dog. I think you should get all the animal outfits because they are so cute!

  12. Stripped goose says:

    I got the large fries, soda, ice cream cone, robot, knight, robin hood, ninja and I’m getting the electrifier soon! Poptropica is so awesome! I’m geting more credits soon! Sick nasty!

  13. Golden Gamer says:

    Hi everyone. I have the puppy costume, dragon, and the electrofier. I’m going to get the soda and ice cream costumes next. Poptropica is the coolest game ever!

  14. Calm Spinner says:

    I have the Rock Star, the Pop Star, the fairy queen the puppy, the second baseball player, the soda can, the electrifier, the colorizer, the phantom, the cowgirl, robinhood (I just wanted the bow and arrow), and that’s probably it, but I might have missed something.

  15. taz says:

    pkay so when poptropica revised its website to that weird home page it got difficult. like i keep buying things in the store but i can’t access them! how do i get to them so i can pimp my character!

    Hijuyo: Visit the ‘Store’ tab of your inventory to use all your store-bought items.

    • pretty gamer says:

  17. Prickly Dolphin says:

I have four gold cards and they are poptropica offical guide in backpack, electrify, and lightning staff. Poptropica Rules!!!!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      The particular format you see up there is no longer in use. Currently, we have separate tabs for the Store and Friends. With Poptropica Friends (which did not exist even after the Stats/Store/Stuff was released), you can view your island medallions, character, etc but with the new format. The Welcome page (the Home button) also shows some of your friends’ recent activity (the place where it offers you a profile quiz question).

What's popping, Poptropicans?
