Poptropica Counterfeit Island Walkthrough



Poptropica Counterfeit Island is the tenth island journey in the game. It was released to Early Access players on Dec 21, 2009 and has become available to everybody in early January, 2010. The island's story is that a notorious art thief has hatched a plot to steal some very important art from the island's museum, but no one knows who the thief is or when the heist will happen. It's up to you to save the day. You'll encounter many odd people as you try to solve the mystery and run into many different plot twists as you play. Here is a complete walkthrough for Counterfeit Island.


Arriving on the Island

Needless to say, first things first. Use the map to travel by balloon to Counterfeit Island. Your balloon will park next to the art museum on the island. Start going all the way right and go to the Downtown area. When you arrive, the first store you'll see is called Bobo's Clown Store. Go inside. You'll see several colored balloons inside. Select a green balloon and then walk outside the store.



EXTRA: you can jump up on the roof of the store to talk with Bobo the clown. He'll tell you why he's up on the roof. It's not necessary to talk with him to complete this quest.




Now go all the way right and go into the Country side area. A few steps in to this spot you'll see a young woman with a sobbing youngster. You can cheer him up by giving him your green balloon. Click on him to hand it over. When he tales it fom you, he'll lift up into the sky. Poor little dude! Oh well, he's not your problem right now. Head back to the left to go Downtown and then run all the way to the left of that zone and go into Main Street. When you arrive at Main Street, go inside the Web Browser Internet Cafe. There's a guy who looks like a tourist and has a hat and camera. Go up to him and talk to him. He explains that he lost his tickets for the underground tunnel tour and that if you can help him find them he will give one to you. A neat little thing in this mission is that while you're talking with him, you can see balloon boy flying in the sky on the television behind you. Head back out of the cafe and then go to the right and go to Downtown.



Your next stop is the garbage can just to the right of the entrance to the underground tunnel tour. Click on the garbage can and a screen will appear showing all garbage inside. Click on each piece and drag it away from the center. After you move a few pieces of garbage away, you'll find the tickets! Pick up the tickets.



OK, now run back to Main Street and enter the Web Browser Internet Cafe again. Head inside the cafe and go to the tourist who lost the tickets. Find the tickets in your backpack and click on Use to give them to him. The guy will thank you for finding them and just as he promised, he'll give one back to you so that you can use it to take the underground tunnel tour.








OK, head back Downtown and go to the entrance to the underground tunnel tour. There's a woman standing outside wearing a green beret. While you are standing near her, open your backpack and find the ticket. Click on the "Use" button on the ticket Ready to begin the tour? Just click on the gate behind you to get going.



Just keep moving along the single pathway in the tunnel tour. You will see a lightbulb on a cable down in the middle of the tunnel at the bottom. Jump up onto this cable and climb to the top. There is a torn piece of paper sitting on another cable over to your right. This is part of the torn picture that you'll need to unlock the secret door to the museum later in the quest. Once you're at the top of the cable, jump off to the right. As you fall over the torn picture, you will pick it up and it will go into your backpack. Keep following the main tunnel until you see a stone staircase heading up out of a door. Walk up the staircase to go outside and end the underground tunnel tour.


The Strange Person

When you wrap up the tour and head out the exit, there's a guy with sunglasses and an overcoat waiting just outside. He'll tell you a story and ask you to get a job at the museum, then meet him in this same spot after nightfall. OK, the next thing to do is walk a little bit over to the right, where you'll see another torn picture piece. Pick up the piece of the torn picture. Before leaving this area, run across the docks to the left and jump up to the top of the mast on the fishing boat to find your third piece of the torn picture. Now that you've got both the torn picture pieces from here, go back to the right and go to Main Street and then walk into the museum.


In the Museum


Talk to the security guard inside the museum and he will tell you to go speak with the assistant curator. You'll find the assistant curator standing right above on top of the staircase. Walk up the stairs and click on him. He says that there are four paintings inside the museum that someone placed incorrectly. He'd like you to help fix every thing and place the paintings in the right spots. In each of the different wings, one of the paintings on the wall will come off and source you'll be able to carry it. This guide tells you where to put all the paintings so that they are in the correct places.



  • Take the painting that's inside the cubism wing and take it to the impressionism wing.
  • Move the painting from the impressionism wing to the expressionism wing.
  • Move the painting from the expressionism wing to the realism wing.
  • Move the painting from realism wing to the cubism wing.



Now that you've got all the paintings placed correctly, walk back to the stairs and talk with the assistant curator. He'll hire you on the spot and tell you to start the training. Follow him into the Lab to begin. Speak to him and then he'll tell you to select a station to begin your training. Start at the first desk on the left by clicking on it. You'll get a special X-Ray device that you can use on the paintings. Use it on each one until you find the canvas with the sketches underneath the paint. The arrows up to allow you to move between the different canvases. Click on the one you think is real.

In the next test, you'll use a magnifying glass to try and figure out which painting is a fake. Look in the corners of each painting to find the signature and figure out which one is different than the others. The one with the different signature is the forgery. Good job!


The third test is a photograph and you need to click on the area that shows it is a fake. Look up on the left side where you seen the moon. Click on the dark part of the moon. If this was really a picture of the moon, there would be no stars on the dark side of it.

The next step to to go to the desk on the right, which is where the staff performs chemical analyses of paint samples. In this training exercise, you select a paint sample and then it will be placed inside the beaker. A red bar moves across and when it reaches a square, that square lights up with a color. Click on that color beaker above while the square is lit to add it into the test solution. If you do it correctly and in time, a green check mark will appear over the square. Repeat this exercise until all four of the squares are done right. Now repeat the whole process for the remaining two paint samples. Once you finish this experiment, your schooling is complete and the assistant curator will give you a key to the supply room.
Leave the forgery detection lab and walk right and then follow the signs to the statue room and security office. Walk left past the statues and follow the sign to the security office and supply closet. Go left to the end and you'll arrive at the supply closet door. Use the key from your backpack to unlock it and get inside. In here you'll see that sixth piece of the torn photo. Now that it's put together you'll see it forms a picture of the head of a gargoyle.

OK, now head back over to the right side and then go back through the room of statues. Walk back into the main area and go outside the museum. Now it is night time outside. Head left and go to the city docks. The strange and mysterious man will be standing right where you saw him last. Go inside the gate to the underground tour area and then follow the tunnel back to the wooden ladder. Climb the ladder and then click on the hatch at the top. The hatch cover will appear on screen and it has a gargoyle face on it. Use the mouse to move all the pieces on the hatch to match the version from the torn picture pieces you collected. You need to get all of the facial features on the hatch gargoyle to exactly match the picture. Once you've got it exactly right, the hatch opens up and you can climb through it.


You will appear back inside the museum supply closet. Use the key again to unlock the door and then walk out into the hallway. Watch out because the shadow of the security guard will walk by the window to the security office. Wait for her to go by and then run past the window all the way to the statue room door. Enter the statue room and then move to the right slowly and carefully while avoiding the moving laser beams you see there. You are safe from being spotted by a laser beam when you're hiding behind something, like a statue or potted plant. When you get across the room safely, go outside into the main hall.

From here, go up and to the left to where the painting of the Scream is located. Click on the top of it and you will jump up onto the light hanging above it. All of the sudden the museum alarms will go off and the police will arrive. You've been framed! Next you'll find yourself inside the jailhouse being interrogated by the police. The first thing you have to do is undergo a lie detector test. It's very easy to pass. Then you'll be asked to join the chief inspector over at the museum security office.

On the way back to the museum office, stop inside Bobo's clown shop, where you'll find the security guard from the museum. Talk to him and ask him about why he left his post. He'll turn over his time card to you. Once you have the time card, leave the clown shop and go to the security office in the museum. When you're inside the office, head over to the right of the room and click on the large computer. Because you have the time card that the security guard gave you, you'll know where to look when reviewing the footage. You will see the mysterious guy appear and walk up to the painting. You can get a print out of the security camera footage by pressing the print screen button on the computer. Next talk to the chief investigator. Her advice will be to show the picture around to the citizens of the island. Leave the museum and head right towards Bobo's Clown Shop.

When you arrive outside the clown shop, show the surveillance video screen print to one of the mimes. The mime knows who it is and she will pantomime music playing. This is a clue that the person you're trying to find is inside the jazz cafe. Go right and then enter the cafe. Once you get inside, move to the right and you'll see the strange guy you've been looking for. He will run away from you. Go out the door he ran through to start the big chase scene.

The chase scene begins here and you'll be riding a motorized scooter in your attempt to catch the bad guy. You don't actually catch him during this scene. All you need to do is avoid the different obstacles that appear in the road as you go by. After about a minute of chasing, you'll both end up at the docks. The mysterious guy will escape in a boat but as he departs he'll accidentally drop a secret key card that you'll be able to pick up from the ground.

SPECIAL: when the chase begins, look for Balloon Boy. He will appear up in the sky between the buildings in the background.



Now you want to head over to the museum. When you go inside, the assistant creator is there. He'll give you a package that was delivered with your name on it. When you open up the package, it reveals a painting of "Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh. And there is also an X-ray device inside. Open your backpack and click on the Examine button on the painting to take a closer look. Drag the x-ray device over the painting and you'll see a secret message from the curator telling you to meet at the Pop Art Museum in Early Poptropica island. Now you get to do something pretty neat. You're going to temporarily leave Counterfeit Island and go to Early Poptropica for a bit. Walk out of the museum lobby into the street and then get back inside your Poptropica balloon. Choose Early Poptropica on the map.

Once you arrive in Early Poptropica, just go to the left and go into the art museum. Walk a little bit to the left and you'll find an older woman wearing purple clothes. Talk to her and she will explain a little bit about what is going on and give you a key. Go back outside the museum and get on your balloon again. Now return to Counterfeit Island.

You'll return to Main Street in Counterfeit Island. When you get there, jump down out of the balloon and walk to the right. Keep going until you get to the Countryside. The inspector's house is located here and the key to the door that the Curator gave you will let you get in. Walk upstairs and you'll find a painting decorating the wall. Click on it to remove the canvas and you'll see that it's hiding the stolen painting from the museum! Next thing you know, the lights go dark and you are knocked out.

When you awake, you'll be deep inside an underground hideout. You and the mysterious art thief guy in sunglasses and a trenchcoat are tied up together in a chair and the Black Widow is here. She has captured you! The Black Widow will leave the room and then you and the mysterious guy will talk about how you were both set up by her. The guy asks you to move your chair closer to where he is so that he can free you. Moving the chair can be a little tricky. To do it, click and drag the mouse to the left. Inch by inch, you'll get a little closer each time. When you get close enough, you both are free from your bonds. The mysterious guy has http://poptropicasecrets.com/poptropica/poptropica-counterfeit-island-walkthrough/ an idea that you should both go after the Black Widow. Head out of the room to the right.

You'll show up in the next room of the hideout. Run all the way to the left and then jump up on the boxes while avoiding the guards. One of the most difficult guards to get past is the one walking on one of the platforms above. Wait until he reaches the end of the left side and then switches direction and starts going to the right. Jump up immediately and follow him a few steps until you see a couch. Leap onto the couch and then use it to bounce up and left. Here you'll see a special access panel. Use the key card you found when you were chasing the mysterious guy before to open the door. Now step through the door to enter the last room. Then walk to the left to begin the final confrontation with Black Widow.

The mysterious guy will run and jump onto a platform with a handle. Your task is to raise him up to the top by turning the handle. But once he gets on the panel, the Black Widow starts to destroy all the art she has stolen by hurling it down at you. Now it gets more complicated. You must try to catch the artwork as she throws it down while always attemping to turn the handle so that the platform will rise and the mysterious guy can get to the top. This is a very difficult battle and requires good reflexes and timing. If more than one million dollars of art breaks, you'll fail and have to start this part over again. But after every four pieces you save, she'll get really mad and then you have a few seconds to run over to the platform to turn the handle. But watch out because after a few seconds, she'll throw a bomb towards you. Move away from the bomb before it explodes and then get back to the middle of the room to resume catching falling art. Keep repeating the cycle until you raise the platform all the way to the top.
Once the platform gets to the top, the guy runs off it and apprehends the Black Widow. In the next scene, you'll be in the Interrnet Cafe along with the Museum Curator. She'll tell you to meet her at the museum. When you arrive, the curator will show you a secret about the museum. It has been quietly hiding many famous works of art from around the globe. You'll receive the medallion for finishing Counterfeit Island. Hooray!
