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.
