Go to the airport to get your special ticket.
  • As soon as you arrive, grab the shovel near the entrance and dig up the bush located to your left. This will give you access to the fruit, which will allow you to then dig up the tree blocking the maze.
  • Once inside, gather up as many resources as you can, including the axe. Once you have everything make your way to the upper left side, where you will see a tree in front of fruit.
  • After cutting the tree down, consume the two pieces of fruit and pick up the tree branch. Now, eat some food and head back down to the bottom left of the maze where you can break a rock to secure an iron nugget.
  • Then go to the lower right portion of the hedge maze where you will find a rock. Eat and destroy it, and then consume the piece of fruit in the area. Now dig up the tree, and you will get find the DIY workbench.
  • Players will want to build both a flimsy axe and a regular axe if they want to get all possible items on the island. Use the tools to cut down the remaining trees to get fruit.
  • Navigate over to the row of trees at the top, and cut through all three to find Rover, who will give you his briefcase item.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.
