The new Mythology Island on Poptropica becomes available for everyone to play tomorrow. For the last few weeks, only paid members have been able to play through early access. All this week here at PoptropicaSecrets.com, we’re helping everyone get a taste of Mythology Island by spotlighting some of the Gods, Goddesses and creatures you’ll meet in this great Poptropica Quest.
There are Gods and then there is Zeus, the most powerful of them all. He rules the domain of the sky, and is often known as the thunder god. He is most famous for his powerful thunderbolts, and ancient Greeks believed he created thunderstorms to exert his power or frighten his enemies.
Zeus rules over all the other gods upon Mount Olympus. He was the youngest son of Cronus and Rhea, two of the original Titans that ruled before the Gods. But Cronus learned that his youngest son was destined to overthrow him, so he began to swallow his newborn children whole. Rhea did not want her youngest son to be devoured, so she tricked Cronus by giving him a stone wrapped in a baby’s blanket. Thus, Zeus was spared this horrible (and kind of gross) fate. He was taken away to Crete where he was raised by a divine goat named Amaltheia. Really!
Zeus later led a rebellion against his father, and freed his brothers and sisters. Together, they overthrew the Titans and banished them. Thus the age of the Gods began, with Zeus as their leader.
Zeus was never known to be a nice guy, and in Poptropica he is definitely determined to get even more power. You’ll first meet him after you find the golden apple on the tree of life, which belongs to him. He stops short of smiting you with a thunderbolt and instead asks you to complete an important quest for him before he will grant you the immortality that the golden apple provides. This begins the first part of Mythology Island, where you try to locate five rare and powerful items for Zeus.
But Zeus will betray you in the end and this will lead you on a second quest to get help from Zeus’ two brothers, Hades and Poseidon. Once you have secured their assistance, you’ll take on Zeus himself in an epic final confrontation to save all of Poptropica from his terrible rule!
