Coming at you live from the Hive: the Goofball Island sequel side quest, Blitz on the Fritz, is here for members!
To get started, talk to the unicycling Mayor Naise on Home Island or head straight to Main Street on Goofball Island. You’ll need to have completed the island first. Now, talk to news reporter Katie Dare in front of the bumblebee yellow Hive News van to take on the challenge!
Accept, and Katie will let you inside the van and in on a secret: she’s made quite a mess by giving one of her bee-shaped camera bots a blandifying device, and now the bee bot has been turning islands either too bland or goofy. It’s up to you to restore the islands!
Click on a TV to head to its location. You’ll have a minute to spray each scene back to normal with your own device, all while Blitz the red bee bot tries to take over with his device. As long as you’ve recovered at least 50% of the scene (indicated in the top corner) by the time the bot’s battery dies, you’ll have succeeded. Keep going till you get all four!
For Fairytale and Mythology, you’ll need to bring them from bland to bright again, while for Survival and Escape From Pelican Rock, you’re getting them from goofy to good. Just for comparison fun, here are the original scenes with the new:
Once you’ve saved the islands, you’ll be rewarded with a Zip Follower and 2,000 credits! FYI, Zip is almost as big as your Poptropican.
That side quest just zipped right by, didn’t it? While it’s fun to have some new content to play with, the game itself isn’t all that challenging, particularly with its low bar of just having to save half the scene to call it a day. Still, it’s interesting to have some new characters and a little bit of a story, with bubbly Katie Dare engaging in some shady news-making on a slow news day and trying to fix things by pulling you in.
There are also some nice details to appreciate in the art, whether in the topsy turvy island scenes or inside the news van. Wonder if we’ll get to meet the whole bee gang with Zip, Honey, Flit, Chad, Queen, and of course our wayward boy Blitz? Plus, what are Katie’s colleagues going to think of this whole sticky situation? Until next time, we’re buzzing off.
