How can I tell if a game automatically awards tokens or if I have to submit my score to receive them?

Games that automatically award tokens will display the Automatic Token icon, and show your token count at the end of gameplay.

Games that require you to submit your score for tokens will display a Submit for Tokens icon. In addition, you'll be prompted to submit your scores without your token count being shown. All games that accept high scores will also award tokens for gameplay.

Trophies

What are trophies?

Trophies are virtual rewards for extraordinary gameplay. Each game that offers a trophy has defined metrics that you must meet to win a trophy. Trophies may be awarded for single gameplay or for scores accumulated in the game over time. When you are rewarded a trophy, it will be displayed in your trophy case on your profile.

Only Shockwave UNLIMITED members will have their scores count towards, and can subsequently win, trophies. In games that offer trophies, trophies are awarded at the end of gameplay.

Which games have trophies?

Shockwave UNLIMITED members have the chance to win trophies in all games that offer trophies. Look for games with the trophy icon in the All Games list.

Note: always be sure to submit your high score in games you play for trophies or tokens. While most games will automatically count your score towards a trophy, some require you to submit your score to earn your reward.

I won a trophy but forgot to submit my score. Can I still get it?

Most games will award your trophy automatically. However, if you play a game which requires you to submit your score to get a trophy and you fail to do so, we cannot award the trophy to you at a later time. Be careful!
