One by one, the citizens of Eastman are mutating into something horrible. Now, the city is quarantined, the survivors are trapped, and ghouls prowl the streets. No one knows how the zombie outbreak began… but how it ends is up to you!

Trivia

  • Zomberry Island is Poptropica’s 32nd island. The countdown began on December 14, 2012 and the island was released to members on December 19, with a demo for non-members. The homepage had a trail of slow-moving zombies making their way across the darkened screen. On January 10, 2013, the island opened to everyone.
  • Dr. Romero is a reference to George Romero, the American filmmaker known for starting the zombie film genre.
  • Fort Savini Tunnel may be named for Tom Savini, an American actor and make-up artist involved in many of George Romero’s zombie films.
  • Common room: Cinema (the only room on the island that’s fully lit)
  • On the top floor of the Cinema, there’s a short film called “Zombie in Paradise,” starring a topless Bucky Lucas from Reality TV Island in a beach day disaster.
  • At Shady Side, the phrase “Beware Skinnyman” is graffitied on some rocks, a reference to the faceless legend Slenderman.
  • Inside Fort Savini Tunnel, there is a truck that says “FedUp Delivery Services,” a reference to the company FedEx. There’s also a car for Papa Pete’s Pizza (parody of Papa John’s Pizza, also on Reality TV Island).
  • Gamer Guy’s apartment has an action figure of a cube head with a spoon trailing behind – a reference to the Silent Hill video game character Pyramid Head.
  • The Survivalist’s Bunker has a Keep Calm and Carry On motivational poster on the wall.
  • Also in the Survivalist’s Bunker is a poster of a Poptropican swimming with a dollar bill on a fishhook just out of reach, a reference to the Nirvana album Nevermind.
  • In the background of the Financial District, there’s a sign for Mews Corp (a reference to Cryptids Island) above the berry smoothie shop, and another two for Spyglasses (Spy Island) elsewhere.
  • Gamer Guy’s face is also seen posted on the wall of the bakery on Ghost Story Island, but there he is named “Abe.” He is likely modeled after Poptropica illustrator Abraham Evensen Tena.
  • Gamer Guy’s drink, Valley Rain, is a parody of Mountain Dew.
  • Joe’s Donut Hole may be a reference to the landmark building Randy’s Donuts.
  • The name of the “Wok and a Hard Place” building in Chinatown is a play on the English phrase “a rock and a hard place,” meaning to make a hard decision. A wok is a Chinese frying pan.
  • The cyber apocalypse mentioned by the survivalist is a reference to Y2K, also known as the year 2000 problem, hence the sign “do not open until 2000” on his bunker at the Wharf.
  • The luggage in the closet of Dr. Romero’s apartment is the same as Thomas Edison’s luggage that you are asked to load on Mystery Train.
  • The Berry Delicious Smoothie Shop is also seen in Night Watch Island, though that one has orange flavor available.
  • Bonus quest for members only: The zombie threat has been contained, but more danger lurks beneath the streets of Eastman. To prevent an even greater outbreak, you’ll need to venture into the sewers with only a flashlight… and your wits!
  • Members get an additional Zomberry Island gear pack, which includes Z.M.B Unit costume, Big Blue Zombie power, and Safety Flare item. The Z.M.B Unit costume is ONLY available during Early Access!

    I know what the island is about. The poptropicans of Eastman go to the berry smoothie place,and turn into zomberries. After that the poptropicans of Eastman who DID NOT go to the berry smoothie place are trapped in their houses and the poptropicans who are now Zomberries are walking in the streets.

    One really cool thing is to take the Members only signal flare, and to light it while climbing the rope up to the blimp. It looks like the signal flare is floating! 🙂

    I’M PLAYING THIS GAME AT THE MOMENT AND WHEN I GO DOWN THE SEWER I DON’T LAND ON THE TRAIN THE TRAIN IS OVER TO THE LEFT AND NOT UNDER IT AND I HAVE ALREADY RESET THE GAME CAN SOMEONE PLZ HELP ME

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Enter the Chinatown subway area and click on the little rocks around the wheels of the train. The train moves a bit, then stops. Now enter the subway through the hole in the middle of Chinatown, and you’ll land on top of the train. Go inside through the hole at the top and click on the lever on the right of the train to bring it to the Financial District. Exit the train and climb up the ladder. You’ll find the entrance to Romero’s secret bunker on the right.

    I can’t find the “In the background of Main Street, there’s a sign for Mews Corp (a reference to Cryptids Island), and another two for Spyglasses (Spy Island).” Can you please show me a picture of it or something?

    Slanted Fish: Sorry, it was the Financial District, not Main Street – fixed it now. The Mews Corp sign is above the berry smoothie shop. 😛

    EVERYONE I FOUND AN EASTER EGG IN GAMER GUY’S ROOM IF YOU LOOK AT THE LOWER LEFT BOTTOM OF THE SHELFS YOU CAN SEE THE CHARACTER “EARTHWORM JIM”

  10. Hannah says:

    Can someone please help me?

    At 12:09, Think drops down from the lanterns in China Town and lands on the train. But I don’t land on the train, instead, I land on the far left pad. And there’s no way I can get up to the train. If I click on the hole where you drop into the train, my character says, “I need a way to get in there!” But I can’t!!

    Slanted Fish: You may be missing a step – check out our Zomberry Island Guide for more help. 😉

    Hey Guys,
    I’ve completed almost all of the islands, and I have never had a problem…. until now. When I try to drop down through the hole in China Town, I land on the platform. I’ve read the guide multiple times, and have moved the rocks. I’ve even restarted the island a couple of times. I just can’t figure out why it does that. If anyone could help that would be great.

    Thanks,
    Bony Shark
