Shark Boy worded the great update very well on the Creators’ Blog:
Today is a BIG day for Poptropica; we have opened the doors to our new online store where you can buy awesome outfits, abilities, and more! To purchase anything in the store you need Poptropica credits. You get 100 credits FREE for every island you complete, or you can purchase more with a credit card.
*Some outfits allow you to change their colors!
*Some outfits have special abilities. For instance,you just press the SPACEBAR key on your computer, and the Rock Stars will rock out on their guitars!
Thanks, Shark Boy!
So, log in and spend your credits! There’s lots of cool and exciting things with this new update. Firstly, to access it, click on the 3-dimensional star icon on the top-right corner, next to the Inventory. If you would like to, there is now an option to change your password! Therefore, please don’t post any more accounts on the Poptropica Talk page as they most likely will be stolen.
As mentioned above, you will get 100 credits for each island you complete! If you haven’t already finished all of them, check out our handy Island Help guides. Alternatively, you can also buy your credits with real world money using a credit card. Thanks to Grey Flame for the image found at http://poptropica.com/store_info.html:
Some costumes have a special action, such as Robin Hood. To perform this action, wear the costume and then press the space bar on your keyboard. For example, the Robinhood Outfit will cause your character to shoot an arrow with the bow. These actions could be useful for making videos!
By the way, female characters (girls) have more options in the “Special Costumes” area. There is more stuff they can wear there that boys don’t get to purchase, such as the “Fairy Queen” or “Geisha”!
To access these purchased items, go to your Inventory, and click on the scroll bar at the top. Click on the gold words, which say “Purchased Items”, and you’ll be able to use your items! Also, you may have noticed the Games button to be gone. Well, don’t worry too much – right underneath “Purchased Items” is “Games”, where you can see all your game cards. And as some of you have seen – right underneath Games is Astro-Knights! They’re probably just preparing for the island’s release, but there’s another hint that it’s coming really soon.
And Poptropica’s homepage has slightly changed! The buttons at the bottom of where you log in have now been formed into a bar, which looks much nicer. Thanks again to Grey Flame for taking this picture for us:
It was a beautiful Monday morning. Ned Noodlehead decided to take the day off to visit his favorite vacationing spot, Reality TV Island. The sun was shining down his back, and he loved how it felt. He strolled through the forests quietly, admiring nature, gasping at every little leaf. And suddenly, out popped an armadillo, big and brown, but with a friendly smile. It looked up at Ned. Ned shyly smiled back and waved. “Isn’t he cute?” he said aloud.
