Welcome to Early Poptropica, the primary island venture in the game. One’s mission in Early Poptropica is incredibly simple: you must repossess three items that were stolen from the island’s early citizens.
Landing in Early Poptropica
You ‘ll arrive on Main Street in Early Poptropica. 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.
If you are itching to begin your explorations, you can first try jumping up the Water Tower. You can see the Signal Flag up at the very top of the tower, but you can’t get to it 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. It’s spooky and dark inside that hole and some light will really help.
Early Poptropica and the First Settlers
Go right on Main Street to get to Early Poptropica. The characters here look like pilgrims, and the buildings look like antiquated cabins. Speak with each of the citizens here and you ‘ll soon learn that three important items have been stolen from them.
Remember that Glow Stick we mentioned? You can find it here if you clim down inside the well and jump from platform to platform. Walk right up to the Glow Stick to put it in your inventory.
Back to Main Street
Now that you have the Glow Stick, it’s time to explore that manhole. Jump down to the very bottom. You might get knocked over by a spider, but that’s okay. Even if you fall all the way to the bottom, you ‘ll still land on your feet. Then jump over the green spider and proceed straight to obtain the prized porker. Touch the pig to add it in your items. You may be tempted to leave 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.
Your Glow Stick will light the way through the tunnel. When you find a rope, climb up. Keep climbing until you reach the Golden Egg. There are hints written on the walls to tell you if you’re going in the right direction. Walk up to the Golden Egg to put it in your backpack.
Once you get the Golden Egg, make your way to the top left and exit. You ‘ll arrive in the Poptropica Towers area.
Taking a Peek at the Towers
The pig is now yours, but two items still need to be recovered. Since you’re at Poptropica Towers, you want to begin exploring the city street lined with tall buildings. Get up onto to the ledge of the first building on the right and head for the roof! Travel from rooftop to rooftop, 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.
Clouds and the Giant
Wow, you’re now very high up in the sky. Go right until you see a huge pair of purple feet. Click on the feet to talk to the giant. He will take your Golden Egg as payment to enter his vegetable garden. Look near the vegetables to find the missing water bucket.
Navigating the Airplane Graveyard
Keep moving right until you find the Aircraft Graveyard. You can not use the airplanes here, however, if you look carefully, you can 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 any way you can. Now use the Jet Pack to get up to the top of the Water Tower. In order to fly, move your cursor until you see a green up-arrow. Click and hold to move up. Next move left or right. When you reach the top of the tower, click on the Flag to add it to your items.
Completing the Quest
Now you’ve got the Pig, the Bucket, and the Flag. Return to Early Poptropica. (You can fly if you want to, but you will have to walk between Main Street and Early Poptropica.)
Talk to each one of the three pilgrims who were lacking items. Once you do, the things are definitely removed from your Inventory and delivered to their original owners. When you return the Signal Flag, a boat will make it to the dock. Talk to the individual on the ship, and he will thank you with the Island Medallion. Congratulations!
