Awesome Cheat for Red-Eye Snake Puzzle in Mythology Island

I think that the hardest part of Mythology Island is the Red-Eye snake puzzle in the Minotaur’s Labyrinth. A lot of people agree and one of the biggest questions/complaints in the comments for my Mythology Island Walkthrough is, “How do I get past the Red-Eye snake puzzle?”

If you haven’t played Mythology Island yet, this puzzle is hard. You have to “catch” the red-eye snakes by clicking on them. But they move really fast and only stay visible for a short time. So it’s kind of tough to move your cursor to one when it appears and click on it in time. That is, until now. Watch this video for a really great cheat that’s simple to do and will finally help you finish this really challenging puzzle.

If you can’t view the video, here’s a quick explanation of what’s going on. When you right-click your mouse in Poptropica, the action freezes up but you can still move your mouse. This gives you all the time you need to re-position your cursor so that it will be right on top of the snake’s head. So it now is really easy to catch the snakes. Just right-click as soon as they appear, move your mouse, left-click twice and that’s it. You’ve caught the snake. It’s a pretty lame way to win the puzzle but if you’ve been frustrated or stuck for a long time, try this so that you can proceed on your quest.

  6. umm sorry hope you dont mind me asking but how can you not have a right hand mouse button?

  7. Huh, I haven’t thought of that. But then again, it’s not called PoptropicaSecrets for nothing!

  8. Er, magicbird, I don’t know if you noticed this, but the word “mythology” is not spelled like that. Just saying, it shoud be obvious since the word has been mentioned for a long time.

  24. i’ve already completed mytholygy island so how can i do that cheat.

  25. it’s hard but i can do it and i’m 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. i know it’s hard but i can do it and i am 10 seriosly sorry if i spelled that wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. the cheat does not work.i have sat here at least 4 hours trying to do the stupid thing

  28. i love dolton!!!!!!!!! i no this haz nothin to do with poptropica but still!!!!!


  30. it was actually easy for me! i did it before u gave the cheat and did it in one day!
    but i respect the fact that that ppl r different…..so bye (4 now) :)) :)) :)) :p

  31. just right click wen you see it an click on the snake

  32. I’m with you Zaid i did it too.

  33. If you are running Windows with the standard Flash Player, right-clicking only brings up the “setting” menu for the player. The right click does not affect the movement of the snakes at all.

    Rather counter-productive not to have noted this. Hmm?

  34. This puzzle was not hard at all!

    The hard ones for me was the Labyrinth maze, the whole thing, and that water puzzle with fountains.

    Also, I always have troubles on where to start on every island. 🙁

  35. my laptop does not freeze when i do that

  36. Rominagoescrazy

    i beat mythology b4 this it was easy without the cheat 😛 >:( lol why did i do angry face?

  37. banana split head

    this isnt helping i tried to click my right button when it pops up but it isnt working for me so please give more advice such as how many times do we hit….

    :/ :/ xx 🙁 🙁 xx


  38. banana split head

    by the way how are we gonna now when the red eyed snake pops up so theres not really a point to say ”click right button to freeze the screen” is there?!!!!!!!!!!

    😛 this cheat aint helping!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol xx

  39. Thanks! 🙂

  40. that cheat is easy but this game so easy too with snakes so you dont need that cheat really try is easy i need a cheat with zoes i cant defeat if i shoot him one time and i am going to pick clouds i am all ways dead

  41. When I press the right button it doesn’t work!!! How long is it gonna take to beat this!!!

  42. this island is soooo hard… my fav island is reality and counterfiet!! the hardest ar spy super hero nabooti this one and 24 carrot even though mythology is the last island i have to finsh they were hard. the easiest was reality island.

  43. i hate poptropica!!!its so stupid jeff

  44. Waddling Penguin

    Bob from Wiki is right, right-clicking did not help me with this quest. What should I do?

  45. it said to right click 2 times


  47. yeah, he probably is 10. i’m 12. why do adults go on poptropica ??? seriously.

  48. reading you guys argue like this is hilarious!!!

  49. that doesn’t work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  50. Cool you are magic!!!!!!!!!

  51. THANKS SO MUCH! It totally works and its so much easier!! (for me, anyway)

  52. It’s not working anymore?

  53. this doesn’t work!!! I had to do the normal way. I use windows so mabee that’s it but it was so annoying I had my second character and got all excited only 2 find it didn’d do anything when i right clicked AAARRRG!

  54. the real way to do it is to place your mouse so whichever way a snake pops out u don’t have to move it and hold your finger above the mouse and wait. When you see the red snake click. That’s the only way you can get past cause right click doesn’t work either with windows or they fixed it.

  55. that doesen”t work lier im like desprit to beat that now tellus the truth!!!!!!!

  56. poptropicasecrets do never lie SO DON’T FIGHT ABOUT ‘IT DOESN’T WORK’

  57. DON’T FIGHT ABOUT IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  97. princeess middle east

    i tried it but it didn’t work on my computer so I found out it’s much more better to do it your way then copying someone else’s idea.
    And I was able to catch the snakes in 6 seconds.
    All I did was keep my mouse on a spot and clicked fast.
    When you right click it stop the snakes but only for a few seconds.

  98. princeess middle east

    I always master a Poptropica island.
    I mastered all the islands.
    Well at least for now.
    I was a member until a few days ago.
    My membership expired.
    I had membership for 6 months.

  99. Thank you this helped me so very much, I was stuck on this and could not get out it. I appreaciate it very much xxx Sarah

  100. Omg!! That was like feeding a Cat!! Wait wait, click on the odd looking snakes,…HY-YA!!! Bam! What Red-eyed snake has a head ache now? Hmmm?

  101. I finished Mythology Island four times and this never occured to me. It gives me some ideas for other stuff, though.

  102. Thanks for the hint! I am using my laptop right now. Just to give you a little bug, when I press the right-key it freezes for a short moment then starts again. Maybe poptropica is aware of this and might have to change it? I don’t know?

  103. poptrapica is so cool but is not easy i love playing it!!!!!!!!!

  104. cool cheat man $scary typhoon$

  105. it dosnt freeze with my computer, so…im kinda stuck…..

  106. it had me and my friend 4 or 5 times to catch that snake.

  107. omg!! i have a mac and it doesnt work do u have any other cheats

  108. the right click thingy doesnt work for my computer but its alot easier it turned out if you use a mouse controller than a mouse pad. i kept trying with the mouse pad over and over but then i pluged in a mouse controller and i got it easily.

  109. I agree tiny penguin its hard and how do u catch its hard

  110. doesn’t work for me

  111. what do you mean by right click?

  112. it doesn’t work for me

  113. Incredible Thunder

    whenb i right click the scene doesn’t freeze for me.

  114. it dosent work for me on my laptop.

  115. Ummmm actually, I have a macbook pro and the cheat doesn’t work. The screen won’t freeze. Any other cheats?

  116. this cheat doesn’t work I
    tried it and unless I’m doing something wrong you people are just unusually fast

  117. it does not work

  118. It doesn’t work!!!Exist another cheat?Please answer!

  119. Anyway,I finished the level whithout cheat!Thanks very much!

  120. it is hard i just wanted to ask because every time i try to i cant because i have the other mouse pleas help me

  121. “A pretty lame way to do it”, lol

  122. @bakuganshun8: Uh, you watch Bakugan?

  123. The cheats do not work for me. Sometimes it goes on and off so I am guessing, you should do it before it goes on.

  124. ugh you guyz are liars it doesn’t work for me !!!!!

  125. or you could just play videos or something in the background to slow your computer down…

  126. Um, it doesn’t work. I try to, and when I get my mouse there and double click, all the snakes go somewhere else. Please help!

  127. An ok way is to keep your mouse where the snake’s head would be if it were through a hole, and whenever it came out, you just have to click! It takes probably 15 min, but it’s worth it!

  128. what this is not work @ all you need a new one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  129. my computer is weird and when i right click the snakes still move so i found another cheat… well sort of: you have your cursor hover over a hole and wait until the red eyed snake appears.

    P.S do you have to click on its head ? please reply, your unknown stranger, Haley

  130. it didnt work for me!

  131. Yeah, you have to click its head.If you click on a black eyed snake OR accidentally click on close you have to start over. I completed Mythology island 5 times. Fortunately, I mastered it like a ninja. LOL! I tried the one to make your computer slow with a music video. (Turn up Evanescence Baby!) That worked really good for me! The right click thing didn’t work for me. Guess Poptropica is really really smart….

  132. Yeah… That doesn’t work for me on my laptop. I’ve done it before without cheats but it’s super hard and I was hoping for a cheat.
