Mini Quests, Zomberry Island

Zomberry Hero: Back a Second Slime ๐Ÿ๐ŸงŸ

Hey Poptropican heroes โ€” 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 โ€” too high and you’ll have to restart the level. After three levels, you’ll win 1,000 credits!

To see how it’s done, check out this official playthrough video or our Zomberry Hero Guide from when the game first released. When in Poptropica, Covid’s got nothing on tainted blueberries!

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 ourย Halloween costume contestย and make some art forย Community Creationsย andย Poptober.

  1. Funnily enough, I missed the first time this happened, so I’m glad it’s made a comeback, and things being easier is definitely a plus for me, as there are some challenges on Poptropica that still enrage me due to how many times I’ve had to replay them without any easier way to do it (looking at you, Red Dragon’s ninja infiltration segment and Mystery Train’s final chase scene).

    But it still sucks how there’s STILL a “To Be Continued” message, despite it being two years since the minigame first appeared. I’m glad Poptropica hasn’t forgotten about Zomberry, but if I were them, I’d just remake the island at this point, this minigame just doesn’t do it justice.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
