Wow! That was pretty fun. It took me a good while to figure out everything! One of my favorite parts was with the flying eagle. I kinda thought that the businessman would be part of the story, but I guess not. I loved the easter eggs!! I wonder what island we'll get to play next!

How did you do the part where you use the merkhets to track the blue star?

Little BirdApril 27, 2022 pm30 6:38 pm

line them up with the star's path on the very left and right of the 'horizon'
I hope that helps!

Poptropica PlayerApril 27, 2022 pm30 10:17 pm

Yea that part’s so confusing!

Maroon foxApril 27, 2022 pm30 11:36 pm

Yeah I had the same problem

Sleepy StarfishApril 28, 2022 pm30 2:35 pm

You have to put the blue star at the end of each side, then put the merkhets on the blue star. Hope this helps!

I am confused and I am stuck on that one.

I honestly like this one over Fairytale and Goofball island! It actually made you backtrack to places instead of going into a linear sort of way like how the last two islands were. I actually accidently solved one of the puzzles on the first try (don't worry I won't spoil it) so I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with an item I got. Overall, I enjoyed this island a lot and I was a bet surprised at the ending!

Little BirdApril 26, 2022 pm30 9:44 pm

*GASP* that was sudden
YESSSSSSSSS NEW ISLAND now I have to play it to see if it's easy and boring or new and relatively difficult but fun because you have to think through the puzzles
hmm difficulty is easy
that's not a good start
hah I like the pun, if you know what i'm referring to
GAHH ok then that was creeeepy- and now it's over
that was a pretty interesting storyline, although I wish it went more in depth and was more interesting and complex
cool island though, and thanks for finally making something non-members-only!

i was so excited when i saw this post!! but when i try to download the island to play it on the app, it keeps saying i need to update the app to play it. i removed and reinstalled the app and it still didn’t work. what’s up with that?

April 27, 2022 am30 11:38 am

Jade Scarab will be available on mobile in the next couple of days! 

Purple AxeApril 27, 2022 am30 11:41 am

cool, can’t wait to play it!!!

Is there any way to have SOS island be added next? I would really appreciate that. Also the island looks really good.

Heinrich LuitpoldApril 27, 2022 am30 10:43 am

What was wrong with NPCs? Why must you animate all the non-playable characters nowadays? Are the islands returning to Steam also going to incorporate the use of animated characters? I'll be outright with you: the animations seriously don't cut it.

The charm of the island is soooo real! I also saw a lot of improvement on the idle characters and you can really see the improvement of the new platform. Usually, idle characters would just stand, but on this island they had their own movements and everything is more fluid and life-like if that makes more sense! though it might be subtle for some but there's also a lot more character design in this island and it's just [chefs kiss]!


In terms of gameplay, I love the multiple locations and the activities you could do! There's flying, drawing on charcoal, and really just an interactive experience. The detail that went into researching for the information was also evident in the story. I saw a few easter eggs along the way but for those reading this, I'll let you look for them yourself lol.

Excited for future adventures with you guys! Thank you Poptropica Creators for your work!!! 💙💙💙 Forever supporting Poptropica as long as I can still open a pc! 😂😂😂

This was awesome. So much better than I was expecting! Awesome job devs!
Old lady = favorite character hahaha

NiyaApril 28, 2022 pm30 1:32 pm

I really want to play but for some reason, even though it’s now available, I still can’t play ☹️ I tried to see if there was an update but none available then tried reinstalling that app too and nothing. I don’t know what to do

White MoonApril 28, 2022 pm30 3:37 pm

Buggy, I could clip through the tomb barriers

White RiderApril 28, 2022 pm30 5:04 pm

I want to see more of this foreman. He looks like he hasn't slept in two months. Nightmare material, I tell you.
Also... CRAZY good. You did an awesome job with the culture as well as myth and story in general. I was also getting nostalgic flashbacks to travelling on the Wild West island whenever I got to the bit with the hawk.
And what's up with Rumpelstiltskin? I swear he's had SOMEthing to do with this curse...

Thought it was ok would have been more fun if the island was more challenging and the puzzles were harder, the island was too easy, needed more, though the guy at the end would fall in love with you would have been cute, he was kinda of pointless and needed more talking choices or needed to do more, The story reminded me of the plagues of Egypt I think some of the story is based on

lenaapplesApril 30, 2022 pm30 9:55 pm

This was so much fun!! All the characters are so cool to interact with, I laughed so hard when my character tried to flirt with the business man. Also, the easter eggs fill my little poptropica heart with joy, I won't way anything, but have fun flying around for a while, I sure did :D

Greedy MelonMay 1, 2022 am31 10:06 am

I loved this island. I looked at the blog and then I'm like, YEAH NEW ISLAND IM GONNA PLAY IT! I loved how it has allusions to Egyptian mythology and how the style is like modern Cairo. My only complaint is that it was very easy and I beat it within 20 minutes. Could we please have some harder islands?

Angry AxeMay 1, 2022 pm31 4:34 pm

Ending was kinda mid, thought the buisnessman would have more to the story besides sit there and talk about his bday party. Felt like Mythology island during the end but without all the good parts.

Bronze SeagullMay 2, 2022 pm31 4:30 pm

LOVE THIS ONE! The challenging islands are the BEST islands
