Counterfeit Island Guide

Walkthrough by Super De Struguri (Super Grape)
Special thanks to Slanted Fish, Spotted DragonFierce Moon, Nameless UnDEFiNed

Introduction

Take a ride in the Poptropica blimp and arrive at ”Counterfeit Island.” Head over to the Web Browser Cafe and you should see a big book on a table inside the cafe. Click on the book and you should get a loose page from it with some French vocabulary listed. You will also see a couple of computers that you can play a game on, if you want.

Now go back outside and next to the cafe you will find the Moldy Baguette Inn, which is the multiplayer room for this island. Next, get onto the roof and on one of the windowsills there should be a piece of paper. Pick this up and then hop back down to the ground. You need to collect six of these pieces of paper (Torn Picture in your inventory).

You will also see a man with a beard and paintbrush. If you click on “Create your own masterpiece”, it takes you to a big drawing pad. This doesn’t affect the game at all, though. Walk the other way over to the museum. Go up to the very top of the museum’s roof, where you should find and collect another piece of paper.

Balloon Boy

Go all the way to the right, where you will see a few mimes and a clown shop. The mimes aren’t really important at this time. If you go up to the roof of the clown shop you will see a clown, who will tell you he is up there because mimes give him the creeps. Inside the clown shop, you will see a girl to your right, who seems to work there.

Also, you can take one balloon from the clown store (tip – get the green one!). Keep going to the right, where you will pass by a dumpster and a tour of the underground tunnel. You’ll then come across some trashcans. Click on the second one and you will get a view of what it contains. Just drag all the trash out of the way until you find Underground Tunnel Tour Tickets.

Farther down to the right, past the Jazz Cafe and police station, you will see a young boy crying and his mother holding a red balloon. Talk to to the boy’s mom, who will say “Mon fils veut un ballon vert!” Check your French vocabulary sheet, which explains that ”veut” means want and ”vert” means green, so you can conclude that she is trying to inform you that her son wants a green balloon.

If you don’t have a green balloon already, then go back to the clown shop and get one. Give your green balloon to the boy and he will float away, while his mother will run off.

Head all the way left again until you’re back at the Web Browser Cafe. Enter the cafe. On the TV, there will be a new report about “Balloon Boy.”

Underground Tour

Talk to the tourist on the laptop. After speaking to him, go to your inventory and click on the ”Use” option on the tickets. He will then give you one of the tickets.

Exit the cafe, and walk to your right until you reach the underground tours. Click on the ”Use” option on your Underground Tunnel Tour Ticket to be allowed into the underground tour.

Click on the tour guide and she will provide you with some information about the tour. Just follow the tunnel untill you get to an area with some skulls. Jump onto the light cord that is hanging down and climb all the way up. Next, jump over and grab the piece of paper.

Once you reach the end of the tunnel, you should go out the exit and up right by the docks.

Museum

A shady man in a brown suit with a scar will be standing next to you. Talk to him and he will tell you that you must get a job at the museum and to meet him back there when night falls. Also, he says The Scream is going to be stolen!

Climb up onto the docks and go right until you arrive at the museum. Enter and talk to the security guard by the door.

Fixing the Paintings

Choose the third chat option and he tells you to go speak with the assistant curator. Head up the stairs and speak to the man wearing a tan-colored suit. He tells you that the job is yours if you can help him fix the paintings. Go to the bottom right wing of the building (expressionism) and click the third painting. You should now be carrying the painting. Go to the bottom left wing (realism) and click the middle painting.

Now go up to the upper left wing (cubism) and click the middle one. Next go to the upper right wing (impressionism) and click the third one. Finally go back to the bottom right wing (expressionism) and click where the third painting should be.

Forgery Detection Lab

Go back up and talk to the assistant currator, who will hire you for the job. Enter the forgery detection lab, and talk to the assistan currator again. He will tell you to choose a station. (Tip –  The second station is usually easier, but you have to do both anyway.)

At the first station, scan each copy of the painting until you find the one with a drawing on it.

Next you have to detect the fake painting – simply examine the corner for the artist’s signatures. The middle one is different, so it is the counterfeit copy (fake). For the next one, just go up to the moon and click on it.

Time to move on to the chemicals station. For each paint sample, when the red meter gets to a box, the box turns a certain color. All you have to do is click the color above that it turns into. You must stay alert and react fast enough, or you will have to restart.

Once that is done, you will be given the Supply Room Key.

Leave the forgery detection lab and go to the area with two signs. You should now be in a statue room.

Sneaking Around

Walk right past this section and go into the next room. Pass by the security office for now. When you get to the door of the supply closet, go to your inventory and click on the ”Use” option on your new key. Now go in and take the piece of paper.

Exit the museum, and move left until you get to the dock and go all the way over to the ship. Up where the sail should be is another piece of paper you should take.

Now get back down to the tunnel exit from earlier. Go past the man up at the hill to receive the final piece of paper.

Speak to the man with a scar. He’ll say that the thief is about to strike. Enter the tunnel.

co thief

Follow the tunnel back up until you see a ladder. Climb the ladder and click on the object blocking the exit at the top. Make the center look like the drawing you have, and press the button at the top.

It will now open up to the supply closet, inside the museum. Use the key to leave the supply closet, then carefully get past the security office and out the door. Be warned; there are lasers all around you. Hide behind plants or statues to avoid the lasers until you finally exit safely.

Walk over to where a painting titled The Scream is hanging. Click on the painting and you will jump up above it. An alarm siren will go off and policemen will rush in to arrest you.

The Next Morning

”The next morning,” you will find yourself at the police station, where you will be asked to take a lie detector test.

Talk to the girl nearby, who will instruct you to go to the security office at the museum. Once at the museum, head over to the security office – notice that the security guard is missing. Head over to the right to what looks like a computer. Click on it and a video should start playing.

After about 10 seconds, the video pauses. Exit the museum and visit the clown shop, where you will find the security guard from the museum. After talking to him, he will give you his Timecard.

After you get it, make your way back to the security office at the museum.

Screen Print & Scooter Chase

View the video again, but this time you will watch it from when the security guard left. You will be told to take a Surveillance Video Screen Print. To do this, press the print screen button. Show the screen print to the investigator.

Next, show the screen print to one of the mimes. The mime will signal to you, instructing you to enter the Jazz Cafe. Once inside the cafe you will see the man with a scar. Try to talk to him, and he will escape out the door. Follow him out to begin the thrilling scooter chase.

During the chase, dodge everything except the ramps. Going on a ramp can get you farther, and faster. After a while, it will cut to a scene where you see the man with a scar driving off the dock into a motor boat and speeding away. You will then dash over and grab the Key Card which he dropped on his way there.

Early Poptropica Island

Make your way back to the museum where the assistant curator will hand you a package containing Van Gogh’s Starry Night with a scanning device. Use the X-ray scan to read the message, which tells you to visit the art museum on Early Poptropica Island.

Ride the blimp on Main Street to Early Poptropica, and arrive at the Pop Art Museum, where you will meet the curator. She will hint that someone you trust is watching you very closely. The curator will also give you a Key.

The Scream

Take the blimp back to Counterfeit Island and go all the way to the right until you get to a cottage house. Walk up to the cottage door and use your key. Get up to the second floor, where the painting is.

You should see a corner of the painting peeling off, so click on that. The painting titled The Scream will be revealed, and the lights will go out. Someone will tie you to a chair in an underground room. Then the Black Widow will talk to you for a minute.

The Black Widow

Untying from Chairs

Tied up near you in another chair is the man with a scar. He advises you to try and scoot over to him so he can untie you. To do this, move forward and backward, but be careful. If you fall over, you must restart. After he helps untie you, go to the right side where you should find the exit.

Escape

(Tip – Stay alert at all times; the next part is tough!) Go all the way to the left and jump up onto the boxes. Carefully jump up onto the ledge and onto the boxes without being seen. This may take a few tries.

Hop up to the right when the guard turns around; follow him and then jump onto the couch and up to the left ledge. Use your key card to open the door.

co hideout

Saving Art & Lifting High

Now walk over to the left where you will find the Black Widow. In this next tricky part, your task is to help the man with a scar be raised and lifted up high, yet save as much art as possible. If you let the Black Widow destroy more than 1 million dollars’ worth of art, you must start over. (Tip – Save the art, and then when she gets mad go and get him up as high as you can. Avoid the bombs she throws, which will prevent you from doing anything.)

Eventually you will get him all the way up, and the man will knock the Black Widow out.

Reward

You will then be in the Web Browser Cafe with the curator. She will tell you to meet her at the museum. Head over to the museum now and the curator will be waiting for you at the bottom right wing of the museum.

Talk to her and she will tell you that this museum really is the top secret storage place for the world’s greatest art. As she presses a nearby button, the walls will go down to reveal new paintings.

Congratulations, you have completed Counterfeit Island! You will be awarded with the Counterfeit Island Medallion and credits to spend at the Poptropica Store.

      Hey! This poptropica help blog is awesome!If I never found I would be lost on each island for like ten months.I would say the say thing as Jes,”OMG,Thnaks for putting this up!I was also half way through it, but I got it now!”

  3. ThunderSharkPanda says:

    Thanks for the guide!

  4. This,was the hardest island…

  5. i beat it yesterday not too hard and it was fun! poptropica rocks!

    • i love this becuase i speak french and english to so i didn’t need the dictionary page haha

      • Me too!

      • Silver Dolphin says:

        Yeah, same with me, but I can fluently speak: Spanish, English (duh!), French, German, Russian, and I am ok at Mandarin Chinese! But my fave language has GOT to be French – I started learning it when I was just 4 and 1/2!

        Oh yeah, SUPER guide!

    • happybean191 says:

      awesome! you know when you show everybody that picture?
      well right now they have that tinkerbell pirate fairy ad so i came up to her and showed her the picture and she said ”i don’t know that man”or something like that!

  6. I couldn’t have finished the island without SG’s help…thanks again, dude!

  7. cool guide super grape

  8. SuperDeStruguri says:

    Thanks for putting it up Hijuyo, it took me a couple hours to write cause I had to do the island a second time so I would remember what to do :D

  9. Serious Tiger says:

    The part where you watch the security video, you don’t need to watch it the 1st time, you can go right to the clown shop and get the timecard and then to the museum.

  10. skinnysnowball says:

    Astro Knights was harder. I finnished both CI and AK on my own though ;)

    • i did too

    • Shy Lobster says:

      Astro-Knights was REALLY hard…and I had to use a walkthrough on it and it took a long time to finish…however, on CI, we (siblings) finished it in one day with NO guides or walkthroughs! I’d say it’s the 2nd hardest island, though.

  11. Cuddly Crush says:

    I thought it was really really easy, except for the art-catching part. That was sort of tricky. Counterfeit is definitely my favorite island.

  12. Yes… This one WAS quite easy. I couldn’t have done it without Super Grape’s help though!!!

  13. friendly commet says:

    i got a balloon before going into the black widow’s hidout and that made it easier to get up to the scanner without being seen. i still haven’t beaten the art catching part yet though…

    • Orange Tummy says:

      Tip- she throws art in groups of four, then a bomb. Try to jump up to get some of the artwork, and while she is getting angry, raise the thing that he is on. It may take a while.

      • Um, no.

        She throws art until you catch four, then gets angry.
        You should run to the lever thing at that time, and madly move your mouse in a CW circle.
        Then she throws the bomb, and you have to jump out when it’s about to hit the floor.
        Then keep doing this until you get the other person on the black widow’s platform.

  14. Llama Lover says:

    I finished without the Guide!

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  15. i have a cool idea for a island… multiverse island its free to go to but, u had to have beat every island on poptropica its just like a multiplayer room but on a whole entire island with no buildings or quests just you and friends hanging out does it sound cool if yes please scream the word AWESOME

  16. It was an easy island

  17. That was a fun island, thanks for the guide XD

  18. Messy Lightning says:

    I was surprised that I beat the island in 1 DAY! WOW!

    Hijuyo: Congrats, Messy Lightning!

  19. First time i did this island i didn’t no wat to do so i checked the guide and i cuoldn’t finnish without it. you rock guide!

  20. Shaky Shadow says:

    i beat the island too! And the guide aslo helped.

  21. OK what is your fave island mine is COUNTERFEIT!!!!!!!!!

  22. Shaky Shadow says:

    So is mine! i like the part when you get the package and figure out that you have to go to early poptropica.

    • i m waiting for it to realese to the public coz the early pass is 200 credits loss

      Hijuyo: 300 loss – but some people think it’s worth it to play early. It releases to the public on January 4th, 2010. ;)

      • It’s going to come out soon. It’s gonna be a waste of credits if you buy the access pass a day or so before it comes out. You’re just gonna lose 300 creds. Not worth it, if you ask me. And I don’t have 500 creds, so I won’t be tempted to waste my credits on an access pass. =P

    • THE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! says:

      cool (inter island) activity:0

  23. Giant Fox/Lady Cinnamon says:

    I did this island entirely without a guide, but it took me about 3-3 1/2 hours to do it.

  24. Yeah I got bought 500 credits online then got the Early access pass then came here to find out how to complete Counterfit Island!
    And I completed it!

  25. I beaten Counterfeit Island the first day the Early Access pass came out!

  26. michelle2467 says:

    I had to make to accounts because on my first one i used up 500 and didn’t have enough…
    COUNTERFEIT ISLAND. LOL! Thanks Super Grape!

    POPTROPICA HELP BLOG ROX!

  27. poptropicaluver says:

    i finished it the day it came out as early acess.. :O}

  28. Blue Dolphin says:

    Thx so much! The thing i did to “save the art” when the BW was throwing it, i turned the crank when she got mad cuz it was taking for ever! lol Whats everyones high score on the game in the WBI? im glad they came up with a new game! mine is 139. lol The birds are boring but if you “land” on one its just like bouncing! lol huh i thought that the BW would go to the jail oh well! I think that all the “bad guys”(dr hare, BW, director D, the shark, the evil superpeople ect) should get together and make a new island “Evil island” lol sry long post lol

    • Strange Joker says:

      But Dr. Hare is dead, the super villains are locked up, Director D. is locked up, Binary bard is dead, and BW is…somewhere where evil people go when they’re caught.

      It wouldn’t make sense.

      • Pirate Axe says:

        Dr. Hare isn’t dead you fool! He’s…………. right HERE! *unzips Busy Axe costume and reveals herself as Dr. Hare* MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! *runs away and chats with Hades*

      • Ahem,Dr.Hare was only FLOATING in space,you’re right about the super villains and Director D,Binary Bard isn’t dead,he was only knocked out by the princess,and BW could escape.Finally,Super Villain Island is released.

  29. rangerdude says:

    the new island is pretty awesome but i wish that they come out with sequel islands like if Dr.Hare escaped and came on another island or even more to 24 carrot. another example if director D escaped from jail and went away to another island

  30. Oh my gosh!
    I finished Counterfeit Island the day it came out- yeah- I know…I love Poptropica.

    It is so cool that you can have everything online!
    It probably takes some effort.
    And dedication.

    So, I just want to say Thanks.
    I respect your dedication.

    I don’t think you deserve to have people swearing and saying mean things all over your blog. Thank you.

    From a Twilight Fan.

    • Golden Hawk says:

      I agree. They’re really good, especially for their age. Most other blogs are really disorganized and aren’t up-to-date and don’t look good. Not to mention that they have just the right amount of writers: too little, and it’s too hard, but too many, and it’s really disorganized as a rule. Thank you as well.

      By the way, I admire you: it usually takes some effort to finish an island in one day, other than the really easy ones. I haven’t the credits to get CF island, but I assume it’s hard. Unfortunately, I do not like Twilight: I’m a bit of an English nerd. XD

  31. i realy need a account with 500 credits and dose and one like mysteries cuse theres a bunch at http://learnitsolveit.wordpress.com
    i here that sheas despret and needscomment from other peapole her friends i just trying to help her um how did u guys get ure site sooo populer cuse if u tell me ill tell her

  32. gusse what the owner of the blog i was talking about got her first commment from someone els beside her friend heather she is soo happy but it was only one soo dose any know how to get ure blog populer

    • Golden Hawk says:

      I am making an account with that many credits; perhaps you can help. Reply first, though. It IS a bit late, though.

  33. OMG HOW DO U GET PAST THE GUARDS ITS SO HARD OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY about the !s BUT ITS SO SO SO HARD I GOT TO THE SECOND TO LAST BIT AND GUESS WAT?
    DAT GUY IN FRONT OF THE SOFA SAID STOP RIGHT THERE!!!!!

    • You go to the end and when you see a opening jump upthen go to where the’re boxes. Jump on top of the boxes but wait until the guy on the right over you or slightly right to you turns right. After he does go up behind him but don’t get to close. then jump on the sofa before he turns around. And make sure you don’t go in front of him. It’s like follow the leader only with black widows right and left hand guys.

  34. Golden Hawk says:

    I know French, but I’ll probably get the guide anyway since you probably have to and since I like having lots of inventory stuff. :)

  35. It’s so cool how you have to go to another island!

  36. This is so going to help for everyone… when everyone gets access to Counterfeit Island.

  37. I have a prediction for the new island AFTER counterfeit and it’s…..

    REALITY TV ISLAND!!!!

    Summer 2010!!!!

  38. Golden Shell says:

    This might be the most difficult island yet!

  39. Nice Joker says:

    I only used guides for this island only, this guide is useful.

  40. Friendly Onion says:

    Wow! now I know how to complete counterfeit island!

  41. Your website is so cool! :)

  42. Golden Hawk says:

    Hey, what happens if you get the tickets and take the tour, but the kid doesn’t have the balloon, and the guy his ticket? I mean, it would work anyway…

  43. Green Boa says:

    I created a new poptropican to get 500 credits and test the island for me. I think it’s really funny about ‘balloon boy!’ When I gave him the balloon and he floated off, the first thing that came to my head ‘Oops! he’s off!’ lolz I didn’t think it was very funny but I started laughing heaps anyway! lol :P

    • Orange Tummy says:

      LOL I was like “Oh no!” and when the girl ran off, I was like “Don’t tell the police!” and I went and got a balloon to try and chase him. It didn’t work XD

  44. Cuddly Boa says:

    I wasted my 300 creds on the pass!It wasnt worth it!
    -Lady Boa/Director Boa

    Hijuyo: Some people might think it’s worth it, others are willing to wait if it means they can save credits. It’s your choice. ;)

  45. It came out for the public today!!!!!!

  46. Who has two thumbs, completed Counterfeit Island, which just came out today, and is still on winter break until next week? THIS GIRL! *points to herself using both thumbs*

    BTW, I have an add to the guide: after every 4 pieces of art you save, Black Widow will get angry & throws a bomb, which you have to dodge.

  47. Cuddly Boa says:

    YA HOOO!!!I FINALY completed Counterfiet island!It is the best island so far in my opinion,it was chalenging, but fun!
    Cuddly Boa/Director Boa/Lady Boa

  48. I have a question; for the torn piece of paper- I forgot two pieces. The top right and bottom left. I’ve already completed the museum jobs and I can’t go left anymore if the pieces are there. Where are those pieces and if they are located left of the museum, is it still possible to obtain them? Thanks :DD

    Hijuyo: One of the pieces of paper is at the sail of the ship at the docks. Reread the guide to see which pieces you’re missing. ;)

  49. Massive Spinner says:

    I love this island but there are still some questions:

    The curator will hint that someone you trust is watching you very closely. Who?

    In the cottage house, there is a tresure chest. Can you open it and if so, how?

    I am just wondering if you know the answers it’s fine if you don’t.

    • I think it’s the policewoman (who you ”trust”), who is later revealed to be the Black Widow (the criminal).

      Also, the cottage house’s treasure chest does not seem to be able to open. ;)

      • Magic Storm says:

        Such a shame…! But hey, who cares about that chest- after all, if it’s not meant to be opened then you shouldn’t try to open it at all!

      • Strange Joker says:

        I never trusted her. She was just a character for me. But while I predicted the second-hand man being evil, I never wondered why the “investigator’s” clothing was all casual. Then i found out why…

      • Clytemnestra says:

        I never trusted her. I did Reality Show Island first, and the Black widow was one of the contestants. When I saw the Inspector, I put 2 and 2 together.

  50. serious spider says:

    Thanks for the guide! I loved the laser part, it reminded me of Ocean’s twelve. :P

  51. For some reason, I think the coolest thing about this island is that you get to meet one of the characters on a different island.

    • I agree with you, oven12497. That was awesome.

    • Magic Storm says:

      I know! It’s sooooooo cool!
      In fact, Countefeit Island is Poptropica’s FIRST inter-island adventure! CF isaland has made Poptropica history!

      • Strange Joker says:

        Yep! I thought that was cool, too! And now we have two museums to look forward to!@ <= How did I make that paperclip? Anyway, yeah. But while the one on EP is just for show, the one on Couterfeit is part of the adventure. GO INTER-ISLAND MYSTERIES!

  52. Purple Heart says:

    My fave island!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for the guide or else I would have never finished it in one day :)

  53. Cuddly Crush says:

    Oh no! I do not have the last piece of paper to the gate keeper drawing. The street is closed off for construction. What will I do? The picture isn’t even next to the gate. I already got the piece in the tunnels.

    Hijuyo: Reread the guide carefully to find which piece of paper you did not collect. ;)

    • Orange Tummy says:

      Don’t worry. If I recollect, there are NO pieces in Downtown, with the exception of the tunnel.

      Hijuyo: And you can enter the tunnel from the docks at nighttime. :)

  54. Mrs.cullen says:

    It is awesome!!!!!!!!!! 2 days of the new island and I’m almost done!!!! I agree with ovenl2497. My friend bought early access and she still isn’t done!

  55. I think there is a glitch when you finish the island. It says that the Black Widow is supposed to be behind bars, but when you go to the police station she’s not there!
    Has she broken out of jail recently??? =P

    Hijuyo: Maybe the Creators didn’t bother to put her behind bars… xD They should have, though.

    • Magic Storm says:

      Maybe they took her to a different prison- a HIGH SECURITY Prison, maybe like the one on super-power!

    • Orange Tummy says:

      LOL I noticed that to, at least the other criminals from other islands don’t just disappear (although I think on Astro-Knights you should be able to see Dr Hare in space XD) And you never find out what happens to her right hand man!

      • Strange Joker says:

        I think he’s in hiding because he helped Black Widow steal those pieces of art. I just hope he’s never caught! HE’S AWESOME!

        OT: Well, didin’t Dr. Hare suffocate in space? He’s probably floated away to another galaxy of something. Ugh, dead bodies in space makes me shudder.

      • Orange Tummy says:

        Happy Horse: He left 24 carrot in is Rabbot which exploded in space didn’t he?

  56. Crazy Burger says:

    What’s with the treasure chest in the cottage. I just finished the island and am wondering what’s inside. Is there a key somewhere to open the chest. Or is it just for display. Someone please answer my quesion? :)

  57. thanks for the guide! ps this island was a rip-off mainly cause its short and you dont get any items you could play with besides the balloon

  58. rozyhanna says:

    Thanx i have been doing poptropica for almost 3 years and i just heard about this website
    now!

  59. ▓╬☮Sea Berry╬☮▓ says:

    Can you post a picture of the torn picture? I’m missing a piece so I’m stuck in the ancient tunnel.

  60. thank you thank you thank you pbh!!!!!!! I am a nerd on computers and things and when I started playing poptropica it boosted my nerdnest to a 10! Thanks so much for your acount help and the guids that (luckly) you male free to EVERYONE!( What I mean by EVERYONE is there is some really mean people who take your blog as a joke and say bad words.) I finnish CFI in a day in a half day after I reread your blog. My favorite part of CFI was either when the lasers were every where or when you got to go to Early Poptropica Island. Lol I lost track of the typing and went over board! :). Phb I love you guys and your blogs!

      Yes! I’m a super nerd too! My favorite part was being tied up in chairs and you’re all confused and then you’re like “I can’t stand anybody in this room anymore! Except for me- me I like.” The only problen was that the man unties you. If he’s tied up himself, how can he untie you? But yeah, this was the best island ever! It’s risen above super power island (which was my favorite before counterfeit), which is an accoplishment to behold.

  61. Brave Whale says:

    cool guide!!!!!!!! I almost have the island complete!

  62. I think this was the hardest island of all of them! The part where u catch the paitings and reel the guy up took a LONG time to complete… but the rest was pretty easy.

  63. tha…was…AWSOME!!!!!!!! DUDE THAT WAS SO EASY!!!… it took an our to do it.

  64. Calm Shell says:

    an awesome guide, but i personally like figuring the islands out on my own

  65. fast eagle says:

    poor balloon boy he must be in space right now and won’t be able to breathe…but then he see’s Dr.hare and also Mordred(Mordred escapes)and in reality all of them try try to attack! XD

  66. HALLP!! I’m at the part where you put the dragon thingy like the picture, btu the eyebrow is not going into position!!!

    Hijuyo: Just drag the parts until the dragon matches the picture, and when you’re done, press the button on the top of the circle to open the entrance. ;)

  67. Strange Joker says:

    The only quote I’ve ever gotten from a game: “I can’t stand anybody in this room anymore! Except for me– me I like.” Ah, I’ll be using that for a while LOL.

  68. Thank you soooooo much
    I figured it out up until the last piece of the picture i didnt know it was in the supply room

  69. Red Crush says:

    thanks so much for posting this! It helped me so much. I was able to finish this island in only 1 hour!

  70. Invisible Stomper says:

    Codien: What is the next island going to be and when is it coming out?

  71. Thanx 4 the guide! I just have one question:
    What happened 2 “Balloon Boy”?

    Hijuyo: Balloon Boy floated up to the skies.

  72. shoeless tooth says:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    i had som trouble with counterfit island and you guy helped me a LOT.

    shoeless tooth

  73. rashastry says:

    this game was fun!

  74. poptropica player says:

    OMG! Thanks so much!! this really helped me

  75. Popular Bubbles says:

    Omg w0000t finally finished it!!:)

  76. I can’t seem to get past the part with the falling paintings…=/

    Hijuyo: Just try your best… once you get the concept, keep trying until you succeed. :)

  77. blue carrot says:

    I noticed something strange you know the guy who was on the laptop after I completed the island the guy is not there anymore did he beat his high score or something?

    Hijuyo: Maybe he did. o_o

  78. a big thanx

  79. i love this website this website’s the best i love it tis is my favorite website

  80. Red Heart says:

    Thank you PHB! Every Island has a super tricky part!

  81. popular sun says:

    This was easy except when you had to catch the art. And fun too! :)

  82. lucky foot says:

    than you for putting this up, it was the hardest island there was

  83. Incredible Monster says:

    I’m sorta confused. Unless I read wrong, this walkthrough only shows how to get 5 pieces of paper? My eyes may be fooling me. But when I go to my items, it shows that I have 5 pieces of paper, and I need one more. I have the one from the windowsill, supply closet, ship, cliff thingy next to the scarred man, and the one in the Underground Tunnel. What’s missing? I cant go around and look, ’cause the construction worker says I cant go any farther. D:

    • Incredible Monster says:

      Er.. sorry… I didnt realize that this question was already asked. D:

      But I’ve read the guide as carefully as I could! And I’m doing this for a friend. WHen I did it for my account, I did it perfectly fine, yet I’m not sure what’s missing this time. Did I forget something downtown or in the museum>

  84. happycamper says:

    thanks sooo much i beat the island!!! its really hard to find a good walkthrough site these days. Thanks for publishing!!!

  85. Thirsty Eel says:

    THX SOO MUCH11111!!!!!!!!

    Just beat it after i got lost right afetr the torn picture. OMG THx

  86. dis wuz a really funn island. Thx 4 da guide.

  87. young star--(lady star!) says:

    I would just like yo say thx to all the people who write these guides. they have helped me VERY much
    xoxo, Montana

  88. ya thanks help blog

  89. Hi cool poptropica blog it help me alot!!
    thanks

  90. wow thanks this really helped i so would not have solved counterfeit island without this!

  91. kkfunbun says:

    Thanks, this helped me alot!

  92. Yay! I LOVE this website! Thanks Super DeStruguri and the PHB! You Guys Rock! :) ;) :D XD XP

  93. Magic Owl says:

    Awesome.

  94. It is so cool.TY PHB :)

  95. The Decoder Mime says:

    I saw a glitch on there. You have to get the tickets BEFORE you make Balloon Boy float into the sky. Then go to the guy in the web cafe (he should still be hypnotized by the game)and click him. Then your Poptropican will say:

    “They might belong to HER,but SHE’S too hypnotized by that game right now.”

    This proves that the creators were originally going to do a girl!!!!

  96. I haven’t done it with out your help!

    thanks alot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  97. thx!!

  98. Alice in wonderland says:

    what’s your high score on the computer game in the internet cafe? mine is 118!!

  99. Grey wolf says:

    oh yah awesome guide i started counterfeit today and ended in like 1-2 hours

  100. Grey Lepoard says:

    i just completed the island and it was soooooo kool like the best island ever

  101. This is, in my opinion, the greatest island ever. Not only is it interesting, it requires you to go to another island to complete it! How cool is that?

  102. HEY! She’s called the black widow for a reason…

    she dumped that guy just like black widows dump their mates…

    atleast she didnt devour him…

  103. I don’t think i got all the peices of paper. Could you tell me the areas/buiding where they were found? Please and Thank you

    Hijuyo: The location of each piece of paper is listed in the guide. Be sure to read every word carefully so you don’t miss anything.

  104. CamiGarrettt says:

    Has anyone noticed that there is a ‘ghost’ table?
    When you are captured by the BW, (black widow) you get untied but if you jump right under the light that’s next to the door, you just stand in mid-air?
    (Some sort of glitch! :D)

  105. DangerousDragon says:

    I can’t finish it in the part where you get to the Black Widow. The lever is slow so I can’t get the man up so high causing me to keep on doing that until the money’s 1 million. I can’t get through :( It’s so slow (The lever) But why in the video the lever is so fast? :(

    Hijuyo: The video is sped up so it doesn’t take so long to watch, but in the game the lever really is that slow. It does seem hard, but it is possible to win this island, so don’t give up! ;)

  106. DangerousDragon says:

    Well I’ll go back on this some other time. I’ll just finish other islands. I left these islands:
    1. Reality TV
    WHY?
    Because the games are hard. I was almost close to being “the one not voted many times” but i got voted out.
    2. Counterfeit Island
    WHY?
    Because I can’t defeat Black Widow. Too HARD!!! AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!

    Thanks for encouraging me to not give up Hijuyo, but I think I will leave this island.

  107. secret fly says:

    this was amazingly helpful, it made it easy… thanks a bunch

  108. Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

    Wouldn’t it be cool if you could share Your Own Masterpiece with others somewhere? Though I guess then you’d need people to moderate the artwork and make sure there’s nothing… tasteless…

  109. Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

    How nice of the Black Widow to allow me to keep my shiny yellow balloon while I’m tied up.

    • Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

      And during the fight with her, the balloon gave me enough extra lift to reach her platform from the ground. I talked to her, and to my surprise the options CHAT and BATTLE appeared! Clicking on BATTLE does nothing, but I was able to have a pleasant CHAT with her as she casually threw priceless artwork at me.
      I feel like I really got to know her better. Like, she says she can stand on her head but gets dizzy, and that she doesn’t really know how to hula-hoop. She has eaten frog legs before. And if she had a million dollars she’d donate it to her friend, Charity. Quite a selfless villain.

  110. Erickaster says:

    During the high speed scooter chase, did anyone notice Balloon Boy in the background? Also, I hit some mimes. Oops.

  111. Erickaster says:

    I found a glitch! In the Black Widow’s underground hideout where the man with the scar untied you, the light on the right of the bottle of wine—jump towards it, and you are on some kind of invisible table.

  112. Clytemnestra says:

    If you translate the name on the sign outside the “Inspector’s” cottage,it says, “Inspector Black Widow”. OBVIOUS MUCH?!?!?!

    • Clytemnestra says:

      Good point, except, google translate,when i typed it in, showed me a “Did you mean Veuve-NOIRE” button.

  113. Clytemnestra says:

    Coincidence? I was listening to music while I was doing this Island, and during the final battle, Better Than Revenge by Taylor Swift came on. Creepy.

  114. Clytemnestra says:

    Apparently a flaming Biker-ninja girl doesn’t scare the black widow.

  115. Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital to claim that I acquire actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Anyway I’ll be subscribing for your augment and even I fulfillment you get entry to persistently rapidly.

  116. Speedy Thunder says:

    I LOVE ALL THESE GUIDES!!!!!!!! This site is super Awesome!!!!!

  117. namenotrequired says:

    i cant find the last piece of torn paper! now i cant catch the thief

  118. Spotted Shadow says:

    If you show the picture of the guy with scar to him ( the guy with the scar) he says he dosen’t know him, plus if your in the room where you get tied up, push against the wall (on the left) then go a tiny bit right and he’ll be behind you pushing the wall for some reason :P

  119. Magic Eye says:

    Anyone have all the photos for this Island

  120. this island’s quest includes going to another island? cool

  121. I actually found this island really easy, astro knights was the hardest for me. But this is my favorite island.

  122. I see people with the ropes is there a way to costumize them?

  123. I can’t find the last piece of paper.. and I can’t go to the right of the main street because there are construction workers there.

  124. Icy Speck says:

    From the beginning i KNEW that the museum lady was The Black Widow!

  125. Really help me today thanks especially the chair bit!

  126. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I did not use this till i left the museum and by I dont know if I got the peice in the supply closet cuase I only have4 picture pices

  127. Icy Speck says:

  128. Perfect Sky says:

    thanks for this guide the turning and the catching is really tiring,but i got it know thank so much!!!!!

  129. Calm Penguin says:

    can’t see the dropped key! HELP!

  130. The island was pretty easy for me, but the last 2 parts were tricky.

  131. Shiny Dragon says:

    thanks!! ur guides r great and always help me complete islands that i have trouble with :]

  132. One of the reasons I like this island is because you are allowed to travel between islands.They should make more things like this.Also,when it is night,go to the far right of main street.There will be a construction man who won’t allow you to pass through downtown.

  133. epic blog but i cant get past the black widow guards i tried literally 10s of times

  134. i am so sad i had to restart the island because i wanted to go a new island AND THERE WAS NO WAY OTTA THERE :(

  135. cool shadow says:

    I love poptropica help blog. thanks to them I have completed 18 islands

  136. avenue a says:

    I love counterfeit island because I love art!

  137. I cant believe you have to go to another island to beat this island.

  138. Thanks!

  139. evelynchui says:

    i cannot click on the paintings. help me thx

    Slanted Fish: Try contacting Poptropica about the problem or restart the island if you have to.

  140. I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    When you hear the name Bane, I guarantee the pain.
    I’m coming after you, Bruce Wayne.
    I’m stronger, smarter, and clinically insane.

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    Bruce Wayne and the Batman are totally the same.
    I broke his back mortal comBAT smack,
    then I cracked my ’28 Krug champagne.

    I’m Bane, yes, it’s a shame.
    I declare martial law, and you all complain!
    I laugh when you ask why I wear the mask.
    I’ll explain. It’s because…..

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    You say it too much, the name becomes inane.
    Of course! Some think my plan lacks gain.
    If you say it too my face, I’ll crash your plane.

  141. Angelica-Fresh says:

    I DID IT! I DEFEATED THE BLACK WIDOW! I’M SO HAPPY I ACTUALLY RAN AROUND SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS ALL AROUND THE HOUSE! OH YEAH!!!!!!! Don’t give up!

    • Comical Turtle says:

      Congratulations!

    • Angelica-Fresh says:

      I also want to ask, how did the flying balloon thing have anything to do with the island??? :?:

      Slanted Fish: He’ll be seen on the TV report in the Web Browser Cafe, where you can then talk to the tourist for underground tickets.

      • Whangdoodle says:

        Also, you may not know this: Balloon boy can be seen clinging to a balloon at anytime on any island! :-)

        Slanted Fish: I don’t think he’s on every island, but he has appeared outside of Counterfeit Island.

    • Thanks for posting that. It’s a good thing you wrote that or I would have given up for sure.

  142. It’s really very complex in this active life to listen news
    on Television, thus I only use web for that reason, and get the
    most up-to-date information.

  143. ADD ME! Isaac_Brimer!

    • cheriebell1 says:

      I added you. Where are you from in Australia?? You don’t have to answer. I am from QLD.
      ADD ME! My name is my username.

  144. Awesomeguy112 says:

    The dragon picture gave me nightmares!! :(

  145. Um what happens to the balloon boy?? I thought we would save him. He is still floating up in the air somewhere……

  146. Does your boog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating
    it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some recommendations
    for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it
    grow over time.

  147. Mr.Pussgoesmeow26 says:

    Funny. In the Poptropica Creators’ Blog (with Captain Crawfish) one of the writers is ‘Black Widow’ and looks just like the black widow in the story. :D XD

  148. Creative Unicorn says:

    Ummm when I said i would like to apply the job for the museum she was just like no i leave this job for pros like me (okay maybe not the like me part)

    • You need to go to the right, enter the clown store, get a green balloon, and go farther right until you see the crying boy. Give him the balloon. Then go left, dig through the trash bins by the Jazz House. Go left to the Coffee Shop and use the tickets. Then go back to the right, and use your ticket near the woman with the green hat.

      Now you go down there, collect the papers you see, and exit through the other side. Then talk to the man in the hat with the scar. NOW you can go apply for the job c; Let me know if this helped, PLEASE? c:

  149. thanks alot i did it with your help and i added u slanted fish

  150. Whangdoodle says:
