Hey Poptropican heroes — the limited time special event Zomberry Hero is back with a similar dose of infected zombies to cure!
To get started with this mini-game inspired by the classic Zomberry Island, talk to the school bus driver on Home Island or find its map icon.
Almost exactly like the version that debuted in 2020, your task is to search for zombies among the dark cityscapes and blast them with your gun filled with pineapple slime antidote to rid them of their disease. But if you get too close, your fear meter will go up — too high and you’ll have to restart the level. After three levels, you’ll win 1,000 credits!
While the latest Zomberry outbreak appears pretty similar to the previous, PHB reader Silver Horse noticed that some of the infected Poptropicans from the original game in 2020 are merely scene assets in 2022, making the game much easier with fewer actual zombies this time around. Some characters were also switched up, with new additions like Burt Diamond and Black Widow replacing others like Shark Boy. And as Dizzy Feather notes, some NPCs have had their dialogue cut.
Despite the two years that have elapsed since the first Zomberry Hero event, which promised a sequel, no new levels were added. Once again, upon completion, players will simply see “To be continued…”
Besides the return of this special event, we’ve got a few spooky season shindigs here on the PHB too: be sure to enter our Halloween costume contest and make some art for Community Creations and Poptober.
