Island Extra: Buy the Book

For centuries, the Nabooti tribe has been protected by the power of seven sacred jewels. But now, the jewels are missing! Trek across Africa to find the missing jewels and return them to the Nabooti tribe. You’ll visit pyramids, ancient mines, and giant waterfalls on your online virtual world quest.

  • Nabooti Island is Poptropica’s 7th island, released on December 11, 2008.
  • It is based on the Choose Your Own Adventure book, The Lost Jewels of Nabooti.
  • Common room: Fly-By-Night Airlines
  • Currently, membership is required to play the full island, and non-members can play a demo version only. Prior mid-late-June 2015, this island had always been free for everyone, having been released before membership was even a reality.
  • Players fly to various places in Africa, such as Blue Nile Falls, Pyramids of Giza, Mountains of the Moon, etc.
  • The cell phone you find at Mountains of the Moon can be used to get a cool new costume. Type in 1225 for a Santa Hat and Sack, 911 for a Police Outfit, 411 for a Brain Helmet, and 1337 for a Nerdy Outfit. When the island was first released, a glitch allowed typing in numbers in the 100’s for handheld items such as a paintbrush, spear, etc. but this was fixed a day later.
  • After the totem flies away into outer space at the end, there is an “invisible platform” glitch where you can stand in thin air by jumping up to where the head of the totem used to be.
  • The Digital Camera has “XL2” on it, which could be a reference to the Canon XL2 camcorder – but that’s not quite the same thing as a digital camera. The one on Nabooti Island could only hold 8 color images, like the early consumer cameras of the early 1990s.

    I think this island was challenging, but I rarely visit it…My resort is Shark Tooth.

  2. Hey guys! They changed the secret on Nabooti! When u put in the crystals, the statue says,” Thank you friend. Now that my power crystals are restored, i can finally go home.” Then it shoots into space as usual. Then the woman says that she cant believe that they r of alien origin. Its actually intresting.

  3. Fearless Paw says:

    This is the hardest island as of April 25th, 2009.

      Speaking of Firework by Katy Perry on Windows Media Player, I was playing Katy Perry Firework on iTunes. I have iTunes and Windows Media Player. I putted Katy Perry on Windows Media Player yesterday. The song Firework for the totem was a perfect time. Nabooti Island was so easy. My favorite parts from the island was finding the jewels.

    Big Zeke’s favorite movies are night of the living carrots and carrots of fire- Which were playing in the theater on 24 carrot island!

  23. Nabooti island came out on December 11, 2008, not November 10, 2008. The Creator’s Blog post written on December 10, 2008 is titled “Nabooti Eve,” and there’s a short poem saying that Nabooti will come out the next day.😉

    Slanted Fish: You’re right, though the “Nabooti now online” post seems to have mysteriously disappeared.

  24. Just finished the game, its alot of fun!

  25. wat number am i supposed to dial to get a hard hat for diamond mines??

    Slanted Fish: The hard hat is from Big Zeke in the Safari, not through the phone. See our Nabooti Island Guide for more help.🙂
