Walkthrough written by Gentle Dolphin
Welcome to Snagglemast Island, also known as Tutorial Island on the Poptropica map. This island introduces players to basic game mechanics while immersed in a simple adventure of collecting gold coins. Any player can enjoy what this island has to offer.
To get to Snagglemast Island, either fly to the island labeled “Tutorial” on the map or talk to Amelia Earhart on Home Island. If you decide to talk to Amelia, ask her what else you can do in Poptropica. She will mention a few things and then ask you if you are ready to start your first adventure. Say “let’s go!”
When you arrive on Snagglemast Island, talk to Amelia. She will tell you that there are eight “mega coins” scattered across the island and encourage you to find them all. Speaking of which, the first coin is right behind her, so walk past her and collect it.
Walk across the bridge, and you’ll notice a sign teaching you how to jump (shouldn’t this have been placed before the bridge?). Jump up to the floating platform with the hamster to collect the second coin.
Walk to the right and you’ll be faced with a large tree; underneath it, you’ll find a purple-haired girl staring at a fox. Seems strange, but focus on your goal and collect the third coin.
Continue right and you will come across a body of water. Swim in the water and bounce on the diving board to collect the fourth coin.
Get back on dry land and walk to a girl wearing a tiger helmet and a vicious-looking dog (don’t worry, he likes small hugs). Jump to the top of the tree, grab the fifth coin, then proceed to the next scene.
In the next scene, you will meet a vampire and an armadillo. Hop onto the barrel to reach the sixth coin in the tree.
Continue right and collect the seventh coin, which is sitting on top of the barrel next to the crocodile.
Keep going right until you come across a propeller-powered platform. Hop on and press the button to fly up, which will allow you to grab the eighth and final coin on another floating platform.
After collecting all eight coins, Amelia will appear next to you on her own propeller-powered platform. She will congratulate you and let you know that you can earn more credits for each island you complete. The two of you then teleport back to Home Island.
Congratulations! You have completed Snagglemast Island! Unlike the other islands, there is no medallion for completing this island.
Be sure to explore the rest of Home Island while you’re here. You can change your look at the “New You” shop, adopt pets at the pet barn, decorate your clubhouse, interact with other players at the Blast-Off Arcade, and more!
