Poptropica Legendary Swords has arrived! It is kind of like an island quest but much more. There is combat and swords and robots and…well, what else do you really need?
In Legendary Swords, you have left Planet Poptropica in a spaceship and during your travels, you come across a planet that is being attacked by robots. They are controlled by the mysterious and dastardly E. Vile. He has plans to build the robot army and then take over all of Poptropica. You must stop him by fighting off the robotic horde using a series of legendary swords that you find on the planet’s surface.
Legendary Swords works like most other quests in the game. You move around and jump with the mouse. When you equip a sword, you press the space bar to swing it. You have a purple health meter at the top of the screen and if it reaches empty, you are defeated and must start the level over. You can refill your health meter with special purple crystals that you find on the ground. Swing the sword on the crystals to smash them up and collect them. Click on your crystal inventory to refill the meter.
There are several zones to play in this introductory episode of the game and more will come later. Paid members can play the complete episode. Non-members can play the first few zones, including the mini-boss fight, but they will stop right before the battle with the first main boss.
For paid members, there are two complete boss fights and you will get to use two of the legendary swords. These are the Rusty Relic and The Bolt. You’ll get the first inside a cave on the planet and the second is right after you defeat the first boss. You can also use swords from other costumes in the game, like the Skullduggery Pirate captain or the Ninja. If you have those costumes in your inventory, you’ll automatically see those swords as choices in the game. Each sword has a power rating which determines how much damage it does. The first legendary sword has a power rating of 2 and the second one has a power rating of 4. All of the other swords have a power rating of 3.
I’m still making my walkthrough videos. As usual, Fierce Moon from Poptropica Secrets beat me to the punch (how does she do that all the time?) So here are her videos while I’m putting together my own walkthroughs.
