Welcome to Early Poptropica, the first island adventure in the game. The fundamental objective of Early Poptropica is to recoup 3 items that were taken from the island’s original residers. Those items are a pig, a bucket, and a signal flag.
First Stop: Main Street
As soon as you hop 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. Meet other players inside the two multi-player rooms: the Soda Pop Shop and the Arcade.
Ready to start exploring? It’s fun to jump up the side of the water tower in the middle of Main Street. You ‘ll see a flag there, but you won’t be able to reach it. Look down on the street and you ‘ll see a manhole that is open. Before you go down into that dark hole, you’re going to need something to help navigate down there. It’s spooky and dark inside that hole and some light will really help.
Go right on Main Street to get to Early Poptropica. Each thing here is a lot older and the citizens of this region look like 8-bit arcade characters. 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. You can find the Glow Stick up in the top left part of the area, which you can reach by jumping from platform to platform. Walk into the Glow Stick to add it to your items.
Return to the Start
Now that you have the Glow Stick, it’s time to explore that 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 hop over the green spider and proceed directly to obtain the prized porker. Touch the pig to add it in your inventory. You will 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.
Because you have the glow stick, you ‘ll be able to find your way through the dark passages. When you find a rope, climb up. Keep climbing until you locate 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. Walk up to the Golden Egg to put it in your backpack.
After you get the Egg, travel upward to find an exit, and you ‘ll find yourself in front of Poptropica Towers.
Taking a Peek at the Towers
So now you have the Pig, but you still need the Bucket and the Flag. Because you’re at Poptropica Towers, you should start exploring the city street lined with tall buildings. Leap over to the ledge of the first building that you come to and head for the roof! Travel from building to building, bouncing off clotheslines to help you. When you reach the blue building, climb to the very top, which looks like a rooftop restaurant. Now climb up the vine.
Beware the Giant
Wow, you’re now very high up in the sky. Go right until you see a huge pair of giant’s 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.
Exploring the Clouds
Continue moving right until you find the Aircraft Graveyard. You can not use the aircraft here, but if you search mindfully, 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 is waiting for you.
Get back to Main Street now. Then equip the Jet Pack to fly to the top of the Water Tower. 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 place it in your backpack.
Return to Early Poptropica
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 of the three pilgrims who were missing items. Once you do, the items shall be taken out of your Inventory and delivered to their former owners. When you finally return the Signal Flag, a boat will reach the dock. Speak with the individual on the vessel, and he will thank you with the Island Medallion. Your quest is now ended.
