Virus Hunter Island Extras & Tips

Hey everyone! As many of you know, Virus Hunter Island was released last Thursday.  Since then, some members have had issues with the new island while others have successfully completed it.  There are even some bonus items available for non-members!  Anyone who visits Virus Hunter Island during early access gets a Hazmat Suit.  All you have to do is go to the vending machine on Virus Hunter main street to get your free costume!

If you want to see how you stack up with other Poptropica players, check out the Virus Hunter World Champions map.  You can see where other players have completed Virus Hunter Island and see how your time compares to theirs!

Members who have played Virus Hunter Island may have noticed a change in the user menu and settings.  Here is a short guide to help you get used to the new features of Virus Hunter Island.  First of all, you’ll notice that the main menu in the top right corner has been changed into just one button.

If you click on the menu button, it expands into the familiar menu that was in the game before on the right side.  However, on the left side you’ll see 3 new icons.

The cog wheel on the far left will open your settings menu.  Here you can adjust the music volume, sound effect volume, and the speed that the character’s dialog is read.  If you’re having trouble reading everything they say, turn the speed down.

The middle button shaped like a megaphone is a mute button for all sounds and the button shaped like a house will take you to the Poptropica home page.

Lastly, some players have been having trouble getting all of the scenes to load.  I had the same problem the first time I played through Virus Hunter.  You can try backing out of your game and restarting or you can try using a different browser to play the game.  If you’re using Firefox and it doesn’t work, try Safari or Chrome.  Your game will still be saved in the new browser and it should fix any loading issues.

What’s your favorite part about Virus Hunter Island?
