Wheel, what do we have here?

Hey Poptropicans,

Wheel wheel, what do you know, Poptropica has stepped up its game, and we actually got three Daily Pop sneak peeks this month! Thanks, Creators! Now, to analyze: what do we have here?

What we see is a wheel of fortune for us to spin for prizes, a street beggar whose feet are better clothed than the average Poptropican, and the attic of a barn. Well, subject matter so far is more impressive than the month of May’s rat animation. But what to make of it all?

Could the barn be for a new island, either for Classic or New Poptropica? As for the beggar, his legs and footwear indicate that it’s part of the art style for the New Poptropica – among the few things we know about it, legs have a little more substance and shoes are a thing.

Mean-wheel (no? okay), the wheel looks like it might fit in as a new prop for Home Island, as a daily incentive to log in and spin for prizes. I think that would be a great addition to the game!

It looks even cooler in light of this exclusive sneak peek from Pop glitcher idk, showing a behind-the-scenes test of the wheel of fortune. Please note: Test scenes do not always reflect what Poptropica will add in the game. With that being said, this still gives us an insight into things they’re considering!

Here we see a more primitive design of the wheel, and above it is a bit of text that pre-determines the prize you’ll get. After the wheel is done spinning, it gives you your prize. A list of possible prizes and the chances of receiving them are on the right (obviously, this will not be shown in the final version). I’ve also listed them below this picture, and I have to say, it looks wheely good.

Possible prizes and their chances (remember that this is not final, as this has not been released):

  • A low amount of credits (15, 20, or 25) (20% chance)
  • Costume (costume 1, 2, or 3) (10% chance)
  • A medium amount of credits (50, 60, or 75) (25% chance)
  • Rare Follower (rare follower 1, 2, or 3) (2% chance)
  • A high amount of credits (100, 125, or 150) (20% chance)
  • Rare Costume (rare costume 1, 2, or 3) (3% chance)
  • Credits Jackpot (200, 250, 300) (15% chance)
  • Follower (follower 1, 2, or 3) (5% chance)

Sounds pretty promising to me! Now, I don’t know what we’ll need so many credits for (especially for those who are members), but who knows, Poptropica might add more reasons to want credits in the future. Also, the costumes and followers sound like great prizes – especially “rare” ones for people to collect! Maybe they could even rotate the prizes so you could win different ones in different seasons of time. Wheel have to see (sorry not sorry).

On a different note, here’s another test scene sneak peek from idk – in this tree-lined space, you can move around only on the platform you start on, and if you press the magnet in the left corner, you can get the magnetic black ball to stick to you as you move. The magnet icon was seen previously in a Crisis Caverns Daily Pop, but they could also just have recycled it for something else. I wonder what it’s for?

Any-wheel, that’s all for this post. Share what you think in the comments below!

    This is really cool! 😀 It gets me a little excited, considering how apprehensive I am of the NEW Poptropica! I wonder which Poptropica it’s for? The suspense is real!

    Finally, substantial Daily Pops, but… That last Daily Pop gives off a strangely strong 24 Carrot vibe.
    Not just because of the orange sky or the dummy. If you look at the box at the bottom left, you see “unny”… As if a B could fit before it. And the barrel has “F” and “B” both paired with a “U”. It kinda reminds me of either “fuzzybunny” (the password) or funny bunny. Either way, bunny. Don’t know what to make of this.

    Maybe they’re going to have new costumes and powers for the credits, maybe the pets will cost credits.

      YAAAS!!!! Dr. Hare rules the world!!!!! Well of course, books also rule the world..but that’s beside the point… anyways… yeah I really feel like there will be some type of 24 Carrot island thing in the new poptropica, but hopefully the wheel will be in the old poptropica. 😀

    I’m excited to see what’s gonna happen with all this! But I really hope the new art style just looks a lot like that guy in the picture. I really don’t want it to change much, and that one looks similar. I’m hoping the new style doesn’t look completely different or anything.

    • Friendly Foot says:

      Yeah, I’ve been playing the original Poptropica since I was 6, and I don’t want to see it changing so drastically… I’d rather have the creators keep this Poptropica and change it slightly, instead of making a whole new one.

      • Yujo_Jacy_the_Jumpy_Coyote says:

        Yeah, I just hope the art style doesn’t tear me away from the game that I’ve been playing for oh so long 😦 . . . And the fact that we know so little about what the New Poptropica will actually be isn’t really helping my worries either.

  5. greedyshadow says:

    Whee… Ok, this is getting out of hand. We’ll probably not going to have those kinds of stuff for a while and all we got are ads to look at (ha, I didn’t use the pun). So with just ads and sneak peeks, now what? 😦

What's popping, Poptropicans?
