Finally, our Virus Hunter Island walkthrough!

It's one of our featured Islands of the Month for September, not to mention one of the hardest adventures we've ever created. Isn't it about time we helped you complete Virus Hunter Island?

At last, the official video walkthrough for Virus Hunter Island is here. If Joe Stockman's intestines are blocking you, his muscles are cramping your style, or his brain is freezing you up, then we've got you covered! Or hey, maybe you just missed Captain Crawfish's dulcet tones. (I've missed you too.)

So head to Poptropica now and play Virus Hunter Island for free! You'll earn bonus credits this month only!

New! Get credits for replaying Poptropica Islands!

Happy dance time!
Exciting news for longtime Poptropica players: Now you get credits for replaying Islands!

Here's how it works: When you replay one of our Islands of the Month that you have already completed, you get a one-time bonus of 300 credits. When you replay any other Island you've already completed, you get a one-time bonus of 100 credits!

And did you know that we've also upped the credit rewards for completing an Island for the first time? First-time finishers of Islands of the Month get 500 credits and first-time finishers of all other Islands get 300 credits!

You're going to want to finish those Poptropica Islands and build up those credits, because we have some pretty cool stuff coming to the store over the next few months. Trust me, you're going to love spending all those hard-earned coins. Oh, and don't forget to Spin the Wheel each day to earn free credits! Wahooo!

Good luck!

UPDATED! Everyone earns credits for completing Islands! Plus: Islands of the Month!


Big news, Poptropicans!

We've increased the amount of credits you earn when you finish a Poptropica Island for the first time. It used to be 150 credits -- now it's 300 credits!

UPDATE: Already completed lots of Islands? Don't worry, we're giving you bonus credits now for completing Islands you already completed! From now on, the first time you complete an Island you've already finished, you'll get a 100 credit bonus. Sweet, right?

Plus, every month we're going to feature two Islands of the Month. These two Islands will award 500 credits to first-time finishers! And those of you who have already completed the IOTM -- you'll get a 300 credit bonus the first time you complete it again! We'll also be doing some cool stuff for the Islands of the Month here on the blog and on Poptropica's social media, so stay tuned...

So what are this month's Islands of the Month?
September's IOTM are Mystery of the Map and Virus Hunter (check out those links to see their Island Info Pages that include cool Island extras). Need a little help finishing these Islands? Check out our Mystery of the Map cheats and walkthrough and our Virus Hunter Island walkthrough.

Stuck on another Island and need some help finishing so you can get those big credits? Check out our Poptropica Cheats and Walkthroughs for help with some of our most recent Islands.

You also might want to explore one of our amazing fan blogs, the Poptropica Help Blog. They have their own Island Guides -- one for every Island! We haven't watched all the videos or read through all the walkthroughs, but we know lots of Poptropica players turn to the PHB for help -- so you might want to check them out!

What are you waiting for? Go finish those Islands and earn those credits now on Poptropica! Build up your credits now (and don't forget to spin the wheel every day) because we're going to have cool new stuff hitting the Poptropica Store soon!

Follow me in merry measure

Hey, you there. That's right -- you. Do you want a one-of-a-kind "Ship Follower" item? Do you want the nano-sized ship from Virus Hunter Island to follow you around everywhere you go? Of course you do. I see you nodding your head.

Well, if that's what you want, you'd better hurry up! The Ship Follower is only available until tomorrow! If you're a Poptropica Member, you can grab it from the vending machine on Main Street of Virus Hunter Island. If you're not a Member, there's still time to get Membership and start enjoying those sweet, sweet rewards.

Either way, Virus Hunter Island is a week into being open for all to play, so why not visit Poptropica now to give it a whirl?

Just browsing

We hope everyone is enjoying Virus Hunter Island this weekend! We've heard some reports of players encountering infinite loading screens when playing (or, we suppose, not playing, in that case).

This seems to be a browser-specific issue, so if you encounter it, we'd recommend trying a different web browser to play. (And, incidentally, if you ever use our contact form to report a bug, it helps to tell us what web browser you're using.)

Thank you, and enjoy!

Coming and going on Virus Hunter Island

For many of you, tomorrow is a big day: your first chance to get on the stick and start hunting viruses in the jungle of the body. About time! We're excited for more people to play all the way through Virus Hunter Island.

As Poptropica giveth, so Poptropica taketh away. Remember, the Virtual Virus Costume will be gone from the Poptropica Store once Virus Hunter Island becomes available to everyone!

Then there's the matter of the vending machine. We've been handing out a new item every week that Virus Hunter Island has been available to Poptropica Members. The last of these, the Ship Follower, will remain available for just one more week.

So if you're a Poptropica Member and you haven't yet nabbed all of the great stuff you're entitled to, now's the time! Don't miss out. And if you're not a Member, you can become a Member today to get these goodies before they're gone.

Bonus payout

We're all excited about the public launch of Virus Hunter Island this Thursday. Finally, the next generation of Poptropica will be available to everyone!

But even if you've already played Virus Hunter Island, there will be something new for you to enjoy. On Thursday, we'll also be releasing a brand-new bonus quest that takes place after the Virus Hunter Main Quest. You'll once again take control of your ship and help to save a sick dog from the evil -- and icky -- heartworm.

We'll let you know the moment that Virus Hunter Island becomes available to everyone!

Virus Hunter Island "Scifi Doctor" outfit now available!

There's a new outfit available on Main Street of Virus Hunter Island: the Scifi Doctor! This mad scientist getup is the perfect fit for ethically dubious scientific experimentation -- like, say, piloting a nano-sized ship into a person's body without their knowledge or consent.

Like the Hazmat Suit, the Scifi Doctor outfit is absolutely FREE for anybody who visits Virus Hunter Island. Just click on the vending machine on Main Street to claim your costume. But you'd better act fast, because it will only be available for the next week.

Visit Poptropica now to play Virus Hunter Island and get your Scifi Doctor outfit!

You can be a Virus Hunter Island World Champion!

The first 10 finishers of Virus Hunter Island may be in the bag -- and the first 1000, for that matter -- but with our World Champions live map you can still be a winner.

This map, still being updated, shows when and where players are finishing Virus Hunter Island. You can sort by the top 10, top 100, or top 1000 finishers, or see all of them. (We love to see those numbers climbing!) And you can type your name into the search field in the top right to see where you placed overall.

If you haven't checked out Virus Hunter Island yet, visit Poptropica now to see the biggest and best adventure yet. And by getting a Membership today, you can get Early Access to all of Virus Hunter Island -- and become a World Champion!

How to make the most of your Virus Hunter Island experience!

Now that Virus Hunter Island is available, we thought it would be helpful to point out some of the ways you can have the very best experience possible. Here's how to use some of the new features, and a note about how to fix a problem that some players are having.

First, most everything you need to know is in the new menu. That's the icon in the upper-righthand part of your screen. Open it, and you'll see several new icons.

The ones on the right side of the screen are the ones you should already be familiar with. From here you can access your Friends page, warp to the travel map, use the Costumizer (coming soon!), and open your game inventory. That last one's important -- this is where you'll find all of the items you've picked up on Virus Hunter Island.

The icons on the left side of the screen are new. The cog icon will open up your game settings, which looks like this.

Settings allow you to adjust the volume levels for music and sound FX separately, however you prefer.

You can also change the speed of dialogue bubbles. If you want more time to read what the characters are saying, move the slider to the left. If you want the bubbles to go away sooner, move the slider to the right. These changes save automatically, so just press the red X to get back to your game.

To start your adventure over, press the "Restart Island" button.

Of course, sometimes you want to play in blissful silence. To mute the game entirely, click on the speaker icon.

To return to your game from the menu, just click anywhere on the screen that isn't a menu option.

Finally, we've heard that some players may be encountering an issue with new scenes not loading. While we'll be working to fix this so that it doesn't happen for anyone, in the meantime there is something you can do if you're having this problem:

If you're having trouble getting new scenes to load, try using a different web browser!

This should solve the problem for most people. All of your game data will still be saved when you log in with a different browser.

We hope this helps you enjoy Virus Hunter Island even more!

Virus Hunter Island extras for the weekend

It's a long weekend, and that means you've got more time to play and enjoy Virus Hunter Island. Don't miss out on a couple of cool extras.

The all-new Hazmat Suit is upgraded to defend against new contaminants, and it's available FREE to anyone who visits Virus Hunter Island during Early Access -- Member and non-Member alike! Just visit Poptropica and hit up the vending machine on Virus Hunter Main Street to claim your free Hazmat Suit.

Don't forget to keep up with the Virus Hunter World Champions live map, either! We're tracking everyone who finishes Virus Hunter Island around the world. You can see who's finished in each country, and look up your own rank. You can also see every country where somebody has started playing Virus Hunter Island.

Looks like those viruses are taking over! Just as we planned it.
