Welcome to Early Poptropica, the original island venture in this game. On it, the islands original occupants ask you to help them locate a trio of poached objects: a hog, a bucket, and a signal flag.
First Stop: Main Street
As soon as you bounce 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. The Signal Flag that you need to retrieve for the Early Poptropicans is way up at the top but it’s not accessible yet. 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.
The Old Part of Town
Go right on Main Street to get to Early Poptropica. Here’s where you ‘ll find the first villagers of Early Poptropica. 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.
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.
Back to the Beginning
Now that you have the Glow Stick, it’s time to explore that manhole. Jump down 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 transfer straight away to obtain the prized porker. Touch the pig to add it to your inventory. You may 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. When you find a rope, climb up. Keep climbing until you spot the Golden Egg. There are hints written on the walls to tell you if you’re going in the right direction. 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. Since you’re at Poptropica Towers, you should start exploring the city street lined with tall buildings. Get up onto to the ledge of the first building you see and head for the roof! Travel from rooftop to rooftop, 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. Now go up the vine.
Land of the Purple Giant
Now you’re in the clouds. Head right until you see a enormous 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. You’ll find the bucket among the enormous veggies.
Exploring the Clouds
Continue moving right until you find the Aircraft Graveyard. You can not use the planes here, however, if you search fastidiously, you will find a Jet Pack. This is just what you need to get to high places– like the top of the Water Tower, where the Signal Flag awaits you.
Return to Main Street as soon as possible. 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. 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 add it to your items.
Make Your Deliveries
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 each one of the three settlers who were missing items. Once you do, the items are definitely taken out of your Inventory and delivered to their former owners. When you finally return the Signal Flag, a vessel will get to the dock. Consult the individual on the boat, and he will thank you with the Island Medallion. Congratulations!
