A lot of the big boss fights in Poptropica are difficult to win. While looking through the comments for the Mythology Island Walkthrough, I saw that a lot of people are really having trouble beating Zeus in the final battle for that island. He is a pretty tough opponent, but the good news is there are some really simple strategies on how to beat him. Check out this video for a short guide on how to defeat Zeus in Mythology Island. I’ve also written up the techniques below.
It’s All About the Clouds
If you do only one thing (well, besides shooting) in your battle with Zeus, it should be collecting those pink clouds. They are your life force. Each time Zeus hits you, you lose a cloud. If you lose all your clouds, you fall from the sky and Zeus wins. So keep getting clouds! Really.
Attack and Run Away
Zeus has the same basic attacks and in between those, he’s pretty vulnerable. So quickly move in to shoot him and then run away. You especially want to run away when he turns semi-invisible because he’s invulnerable to your attacks in that state. So move off to the side and wait a few seconds before going in for another attack. What should you be doing while waiting? Yes, you guessed it! Gather more clouds!
Eventually, you can easily wear down Zeus if you follow these simple directions. I think most people are really just having trouble because they don’t back off and take the time to gather up more clouds. Remember to keep switching between offense (shooting Zeus) and defense (picking up more clouds) and you’ll win easily.
