Welcome to Early Poptropica, the primary island adventure in this game. On it, the islands oldest residents ask you to help them locate a trio of poached items: a porker, a bucket, and a signal flag.
Arrival 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. Meet other players inside the two multi-player rooms: the Soda Pop Shop and the Arcade.
You could start exploring by climbing up the Water Tower. 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. Before you go down into that dark hole, you’re going to need something to help navigate down there. Getting back up isn’t so easy!
The Old Part of Town
Go right on Main Street to get to Early Poptropica. The characters here look like pilgrims, and the buildings look like traditional cabins. If you talk to these early inhabitants, they ‘ll tell you about the items they’re missing: One pilgrim is missing a Pig, one is missing a Bucket, and the third is missing a Signal Flag.
This is where you ‘ll be able to pick up a handy glow stick. You can find it here if you clim down inside the well and jump from platform to platform. Walk into the Glow Stick to add it to your items.
Return to Main Street
OK, with glow stick in hand, let’s go check out that underground area beneath the open manhole. Jump down to the very bottom. You don’t really need to avoid the spiders here. 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 away to get the prized porker. Contact the pig to add it to your backpack. 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.
Because you have the glow stick, you ‘ll be able to navigate your way through the dark passages. Once you see 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.
Check Out Poptropica Towers
So now you have the Pig, but you still need the Bucket and the Flag. Since you’re at Poptropica Towers, you want to begin exploring the city street lined with tall buildings. Leap over to the ledge of the first building you see and head for the roof! Travel from building top to building top, bouncing off clotheslines to help you. You’ll arrive at a blue building. Climb to the very top of this until you get to the roof and see some tables and chairs. Next go up the vine.
Land of the Purple Giant
You ‘ll soon find yourself way up in the clouds above Poptropica. Go right until you see a enormous pair of giant’s feet. Click on them to speak with the giant. He’ll take your Golden Egg as payment to enter his vegetable garden. Look near the vegetables to find the missing water bucket.
Enter the Aircraft Graveyard
Continue moving right until you find the Aircraft Graveyard. You can’t use any of the planes right here, however, if you look rigorously, you will discover a Jet Pack. This is simply what you must get to high places– like the top of the Water Tower, where the Signal Flag is waiting for you.
Return to Main Street as soon as possible. Now use the Jet Pack to fly 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. Next move left or right. When you reach the top of the tower, click on the Flag to place it in your backpack.
Finish the Job
The three missing items are now all in your posession. 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 every one of the three settlers who were lacking items. Once you do, the things are for sure removed from your Inventory and returned to their previous owners. When you finally return the Signal Flag, a ship will get to the boat dock. Speak with the individual on the ship, and he will thank you with the Island Medallion. Great job!
