Welcome to Early Poptropica, the primary island adventure from this game. One’s venture in Early Poptropica is extremely simple: one should repossess three items that were stolen from the island’s early inhabitants.
It’s easy and quick to complete this introductory island in the game.
First Stop: Main Street
As soon as you leap down from your blimp, you will be on Main Street. Go inside the Pop Art Museum to see art from famous artists and speak to the artists themselves. There are two multi-player buildings here: the Arcade and the Soda Pop Shop.
Ready to start exploring? It’s fun to jump up the side of the water tower in the middle of Main Street. The Signal Flag that you need to retrieve for the Early Poptropicans is way up at the top but it’s not accessible yet. You ‘ll also see an open manhole. You can jump down now if you want, but you might want to wait until you get your Glow Stick. Getting back up isn’t so easy!
Early Poptropica and the First Settlers
Run to the right until you get to the end of the street and then press on to the Early Poptorpica area. The characters here look like pilgrims, and the buildings resemble traditional cabins. Speak with each of the citizens here and you ‘ll soon learn that three important items have been stolen from them.
Now it’s time to go get the Glow Stick. The Glow Stick is in the very upper-left corner of this room. Walk into the Glow Stick to add it to your items.
Back to the Start
OK, with glow stick in hand, let’s go check out that underground area beneath the open manhole. Go ahead and enter the manhle and then make your way to the very bottom. There are some purple spiders here, but don’t be too worried about them. Even if you fall all the way to the bottom, you ‘ll still land on your feet. Then jump over the green spider and go right to find the prized porker. Touch the pig to incorporate it to your inventory. You might be tempted to exit the manhole now, but there’s more to be found down there. Get past the green spider again and enter the tunnel on your left.
Because you have the glow stick, you ‘ll be able to navigate your way through the dark passages. Once you spot a rope, go up. Keep climbing until you spot the Golden Egg. As you go, you ‘ll see a few clues written on the wall to let you know if you’re going the right way. When you find the Golden Egg, touch it to add it to your items.
After you get the Egg, travel upward to find an exit, and you ‘ll find yourself in front of Poptropica Towers.
Check Out Poptropica Towers
So now you have the Pig, but you still need the Bucket and the Flag. Because you are at Poptropica Towers, you should start exploring the city street lined with tall buildings. Jump to the ledge of the first building that you come to and climb up to the rooftop. Travel from building top to building top, bouncing off clotheslines to help you. When you reach the blue building, climb to the very top, which looks like a rooftop restaurant. Next climb up the vine.
Up in the Clouds
Now you’re in the clouds. Head right until you see a huge pair of purple feet. Click on the feet to talk to the giant. He will accept your Golden Egg as payment to enter his vegetable garden. Look near the vegetables to find the missing water bucket.
Continuing in the Clouds
Continue moving right until you find the Aircraft Graveyard. You can’t use some of the planes here, but if you search carefully, you will find a Jet Pack. This is simply what you need to get to high places– like the top of the Water Tower, where the Signal Flag awaits you.
Get back to Main Street as soon as possible. Then equip the Jet Pack to get up to the top of the Water Tower. To fly, move your cursor until you see a green up-arrow. Hold your mouse button down to move up. Now move left or right. When you reach the top of the tower, click on the Flag to add it to your items.
Finish the Job
Now you’ve got the Pig, the Bucket, and the Flag. Head back to Early Poptropica. (You can fly if you want to, but you will have to walk between Main Street and Early Poptropica.)
Talk to all the three settlers who were lacking items. Once you do, the items shall be taken out of your Inventory and returned to their previous owners. When you finally return the Signal Flag, a vessel will get to the pier. Speak with the individual on the boat, and he will reward you with an Early Poptropica Medallion. Great job!
