BREAKING NEWS: The Zomberry Hero Special Event Is BACK! 🫐🧟‍♂️

Zomberry Hero Special Event

 

Starting today, all players can play the Zomberry Hero Special Event for a limited time! Veteran players will remember the original Zomberry Island, where a mysterious illness befell the citizens of Eastman. 

 

Zomberry Hero portal on Home Island

 

New reports of a Zomberry resurgence are wreaking havoc on the islands. It seems another batch of tainted blueberry smoothies are the culprit behind the latest outbreak. Once again, it’s up to you to be the hero! 🫐🧟‍♂️

 

Blueberry-induced Zomberry Outbreak

 

Grab your flashlight and stock up on pineapple antidote. Keep your eyes peeled while patrolling 3 downtown areas that are crawling with zombies. When you stumble across the Zomberries, aim, shoot, and splatter them with pineapple slime to administer the antidote! The infected Poptropicans will be cured and return to normal, although a little shaken.

 

But be warned! When you get too close to the Zomberries, your fear meter will skyrocket. If your fear meter maxes out, you’ll pass out from fright and have to restart the level. 🌡

 

Luckily, with great risk comes great reward. Complete all 3 stages to claim your rightful title of “Zomberry Hero” and earn 1000 credits! 🎉

Tread lightly, Poptropicans. Be berry careful while venturing into the heart of the outbreak. We highly recommend having your audio on for this one! 

 

Once you complete the special event, report back here and share your reactions with your fellow Zomberry heroes! Which stage is your favorite? Did you catch any Easter eggs? 👀

Red October is in full swing on Home Island! 🚨

Sometime during the night, Rumpel has fled the Airship and a new force has taken his place. Brace yourselves, Poptropicans. We’re finally in the presence of… The Red Queen! 👑

 

Red October's Airship - Red Queen's Request

 

The Red Queen of Fairy Tale Island, conqueror of 7 systems and mother to the Baron, has finally made her first appearance! Royal guards in tow, the infamous queen’s return to Home Island comes with one mission in mind – to slay the beastly captor that’s kidnapped the Baron. 

 

There’s much to be learned from the new royal. Word of advice: make haste to the Airship to speak with the Red Queen! She isn’t in the mood for dilly-dallying.

 

The Red Queen on the Airship's Flight Deck

 

Despite the chaos, the Cabin of Curiosities has still gotten its monthly restock. As promised, all players can now purchase this year’s set of Halloween costumes for FREE! Candle Cat, Homemade, Pumpkin Magic, Zombie Redcoat, Flowy Man, and Jellyfish await! Along with the rest of October’s treasures, two Jack-O-Lanterns (50 credits each) and a Rumpel-ized Baron Plushie (200 credits) are also up for grabs. 🎃

August's Cabin of Curiosities: 2 Free Costumes and Unsettling Inventory 🤭

Although the Airship has arrived Baron-less, the sky pirate’s Cabin of Curiosities is suspiciously well stocked and in order. Has Ack been holding down the fort? Whatever the case, there’s new discoveries to be made in the Airship’s popup shop! 🥳

 

First up: August’s free costume and the winner of last month’s costume contest. As always, choosing only one costume is a ridiculously tough decision. Thank you to everyone who participated in July’s contest round! August’s installment is set to begin tomorrow – keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming announcement and updated details. 

 

Now, without further ado, this month’s winning costume is… THE HAIR by Prickly Tooth! 🌵🦷

 

The Hair Costume by Prickly ToothAugust's Free Costume Aboard the Airship

 

Add “The Hair” to your wardrobes (for FREE) to start customizing the ‘fit’s floral aura, silky tresses, white top, and brown bottoms. Massive props to Prickly Tooth for designing such a flowy, flowery costume! Well done!

 

August's Cabin of Curiosities

 

On the opposite end of the Cabin of Curiosities, all players can scoop up another free outfit – The Banana costume – complete with a banana peel, yellow shades, and sword. Like last month’s Cabin haul, August’s inventory highlights another character: The Baron! Despite the sky pirate’s absence, the Baron (and their trusty sidekick, Ack) are the main inspirations for the clubhouse collection.

 

Browse the Baron and Ack Painting (300 credits), Ack Plushie (200 credits), Ack’s Litter Box (5 credits), Wooden Mug (10 credits), Chest of Scrolls (100 credits)? Perhaps they seem familiar? Where have we seen these items before? 🤔

 

Remember, the Airship and its Cabin contents are only available for a limited time! Be sure to stop by the floating vessel ASAP to secure this month’s 2 free costumes and the Baron and Ack’s clubhouse collectables. Don’t let the captain’s absence fool you – the Airship waits for no one!

 

What are your first impressions of August’s Cabin of Curiosities haul? How weird is the Airship without the Baron?! Does anyone else feel the difference? Let us know! 👀
