The new Earth Day mini-quest, Don’t Be an Energy Hog is now available in the Poptropica Store. It is a free item, so anyone can play it and the first time you finish the quest, you’ll get 50 credits as a prize, along with an Earth Day t-shirt.
The quest is very simple. You go inside the house and then you have 60 seconds to turn off as many of the appliances as you can that the energy hogs who live inside have turned on. But there’s a catch: every so often, these energy hogs will walk back across the room and turn all the appliances back on. So you need to keep going back and forth. Your goal is to keep the household’s energy use inside the blue “acceptable” area on the meter at the bottom of the screen. The inside of the house looks a lot like the one they made for the Spy Next Door advertisement mission and the mini-quest is very similar.
When you complete the quest and end the 60 seconds with the meter in the acceptable range, you’ll win and get your prizes. The green Earth Day t-shirt looks really cool! You can repeat the mini-quest as many times as you like, but you only get the 50 credits and the t-shirt the first time.
