Welcome to Mocktropica – an adventure of Poptropica’s management mishaps and fourth wall breaking! You’ll find yourself in front of Poptropica HQ with odd glitchy music, barking hydrants, an unfinished scenery, and potted plants turning into cupcakes. Um… this does not feel right. At all.

mocktropica-info-02

Talk to the woman in green standing outside Poptropica Worldwide Headquarters. She’ll explain that Poptropica is under new management and they fired almost all of the Creators and slashed the budget.

Once you both realize she’s the Random Poptropican who tells you what’s wrong, go inside Poptropica Worldwide Headquarters. Inside, head left and talk to the guy with the glasses. He’s the focus tester who asks kids what they want so he can make them happy and therefore make money. Talk to him and he’ll give you a piece of Cake.

MI4

Next, go up the elevator to visit the various floors, and be sure talk to all the people there. On the second floor is the safety inspector; the third, the obnoxious ad sales lady; and the fourth, the frugal resource manager who comes up with ridiculously cheap island ideas like these:

MI2

Some of these islands sound interesting, I wonder if they will ever come out with these islands? Or are they just ripping off of some islands we’ve already got?

MI3

After visiting all the floors, leave the building and come back in. The girl from earlier tells you that everyone is in the basement, and unlocks the door for you. Once inside, talk to everyone, then talk to the girl with frazzled blonde hair, and ask if you can help. She’ll send you on what’s totally a fetch quest, despite claiming otherwise.

MI5

She wants you to find some of the employees and will give you their (three!) ID Badges. Go to the computer to the right of her and move the buildings around in the island editor (doesn’t matter where). Leave the basement, and once you’re upstairs, you’ll see the focus tester again, who will now tell you about this “achievements” feature he’s implementing. Also, if a pop-up ad randomly shows up, just click on it to get rid of it. They’ll show up from time to time.

Now, leave the building and head right towards Ephraim University. You’ll probably earn some useless achievements along the way.

MI8

Once you reach the university, go inside. You’ll see one of the employees that you’re supposed to bring back to Poptropica HQ. He’s the professor and writer, Max McPatrick. Talk to him and he’ll show you the poem… while an ad is bouncing around. Click on that ad multiple times and you’ll end up accidentally burning his copy. Oops. Well, he says that he’d return if you got him some soda (that will come later in the walkthrough).

MI9

Head back to the Poptropica HQ basement and click on the second computer to the left where it says “Island Maker Home Edition”. Click to change the mood from “grumpy” to “happy”. Don’t forget to save!

After that, leave the building, and head right to the cheese factory. Because you changed the mood, the guard will let you into the building. Once you go inside, hop up to the second floor. One of the people you need to bring back to Poptropica HQ is there – Lance Pitcher, the designer.

MI11

He says he doesn’t want to leave, though, because his current job is stress-free. When you leave, he’ll give you some Cheese Curds.

MI12

Leave Grunwald’s Cheese Factory and go back to Main Street. Click on the medallion-wearing boy and press spacebar. The Narf pet will chase after him. Now go back to the cheese factory and you’ll find that the Narfs are multiplying!

The boy will run back to Main Street, so follow him, and he will run to the cliff (Mt. Funshine). Follow him there. Throw a cheese curd into the chasm and all the Narfs will run after it, filling up the chasm, allowing you to cross.

MI13

Once you cross, climb the mountain, and grab the Climbing Axe. After you get the pickaxe, go down the mountain and head over to the cheese factory. Haha… time to teach the cheese curd guy a lesson-

BUT WAIT! You are pulled over by the focus tester, who has yet another bad idea: PopCoins! That you have to pay for certain things – including leaving Main Street.

Go into PopHQ and to the development basement. Click on the monitor to the farthest left and set the time of day to night. Don’t forget to save! Go outside and you’ll see a guy dressed in a dark outfit lingering around like a creeper.

He’s offering Counterfeit Coins to use as currency. He’ll give a lot to you. Great, now you can leave Main Street! First, attempt to leave by going right to go to the cheese curd factory. After a brief argument with the focus tester (Bad Idea Guy), give him a counterfeit PopCoin and he’ll let you go.

Go into the Cheese Factory. Go on the second floor next to the control panel and use the climbing axe to destroy the machine next to the worker and transform the factory into a vat of cheesy goodness. Distraught, Lance Pitcher agrees to return to his job at Poptropica HQ.

MI14

While you’re in there, click the settings back to “day” and “clear” (because Lance made it rain to fit with his “dark soul”). Don’t forget to save!

Now, go back to the mountain. Once you get to the mountain, go all the way up to the top. You’ll find one of the employees you’re supposed to bring back to Poptropica’s headquarters.

MI15

He’s the developer, Billy Jordan, and he says he will go back if you beat him at Mancala (just in like Nabooti Island!). Basically, the goal is to get the most stones into your big tray, which is on the right (the opponent’s tray is the other big one). In each turn, you select a cup, and the stones inside of it will be dropped into the cups after it (one at a time) until all the stones from that cup have moved. If the last stone lands in your tray, you get to go again. If the last stone lands on an empty cup, you get to capture all the stones across from that cup into your tray. Also, the bugs don’t count at all. (Tip: Get rid of bigger clumps on your side so he can’t “capture” them!)

Once you win, he appears back at the basement of Poptropica HQ.

MI16

While you’re in there, click “Random” on the island editor that moves stuff around on the island around until you get this (oh, and don’t forget to save!):

Now you can easily hop onto the top of Poptropica Worldwide Headquarters and grab the Soda.

MI18

Also, the safety guy will appear and give you a Helmet because he deems it unsafe to jump down from high heights without one. Put it on, then hop down to the right and there’s a crate blocking the way. Go back into the basement and click on the island editor where you move the buildings. The crate is in the far right location – click on it and it will break. Don’t forget to save!

Now, leave the basement and go to the University and give the professor his soda. He’ll tell you that when he sees a Poptropica script, he throws it away. Go back to HQ and down to the basement again. You’ll see that Slash the cost-cutter has decided to save money on chairs by making people sit on each other’s laps. Awkward.

Now go over to the moving luggage and then move it out of the way to find a sleeping guy… in front of the trash can. Talk to him, then use the Cake (after he does his dialogue!) and he’ll move away from the trash bin.

MI20

Click on the bags to move them. Dig through the trash and you’ll eventually find the Script, pictured below. You can also read a page of the typo-ridden script by clicking “Examine” on the item in your inventory, if you want to.

MI21

Leave and go back to the university. Click on the English professor and give him the script. Leave the building, and an annoying ad will pop up. Go back to HQ, up to the third floor to Ad Sales and pay the lady with your Counterfeit Coins to get rid of the ads for you.

Now ride the elevator down and the budget lady will appear. She will tell you that she eliminated most of the servers so Poptropica would run slow. Now go inside the basement, and you’ll find that you’re stuck in a perpetual loading screen. This is not a glitch! Go to your inventory, put on your protection Helmet, then bust all of the letters with your fat head.

MI22

After you bust all the letters, you will be in Poptropica’s internal servers. Here’s the map you can use for reference when you redirect the beams:

First, head over to the red cord and click on it until the red line points down.

MI23

Then click the blue one once, and then click the green one twice, and the server is all fixed.

You’ll talk to the lady in green again, thinking that you’ve saved Poptropica. But… the blond lady knows her stuff, since she notes that we still need to experience the Poptropica-style villainous twist. As if on cue, all four of the meddling managers reveal themselves to be workers for Poptropica’s rival website, Mega Fighting Bots!

MI24

And they plan to destroy you for fixing all of their hard work! So they summon their fitting Mega Fighting Bot and form together Power-Rangers style into one giant robot in Poptropica’s coolest cutscene yet.

And so the gratuitous action sequence begins!

To defeat this mega-bot, keep on shooting your fake PopCoins at it just by clicking on the big bot. Move out of the way when it throws rocks and its fists at you! It’s an easy boss fight, but a boss fight indeed. Once the robot goes ka-put, throw the coins at the achievements to end their meddling once and for all!

Defeated, the four managers lament and then retreat into their airplane back to their game! Thanks to you, Poptropica is back in the right hands and you are rewarded the island medallion! Congratulations, you’ve completed Mocktropica Island!

Bonus Quest: members only

Go back into the basement of Poptropica Headquarters. Talk to the developer, Billy Jordan, and you’ll be told that one of Poptropica’s best programmers, Mark Hertz, has been lost to the rival game, Mega Fighting Bots (MFB).

Click on the Island Editor. Talk to Bucket Bot and click on the huge computer screen on the right. Follow Bucket Bot into the Arena. All you do in the bonus quest is play Mega Fighting Bots!

The first bot you are to battle is Safety Bot. He is very cautious, and avoid most attacks. Here’s a little tip I used to best not only him, but all the bots (click to animate):

other

Wait for him to come around the bend, then attack!  Even more, you can lure him by standing in the corner, and then when he starts to come toward you, go down a square, to where your bot would be in the gif above. (actually, he is the only bot that the tip doesn’t fully work on… >.<)

Repeat this again and again for all the bots — it really works! You have to beat each bot in two (out of a maximum of three) rounds to defeat them.

ahah

Ad Bot is quicker than Safety Bot. She is also not the smartest in many ways. If you keep attacking her from a corner, she’ll keep coming back for more. Be sure she is in your target zone before you attack — she changes directions quickly.

Shredder Bot is easily ticked and has a bit of a temper. She hurts… a lot. Hard to defeat.  She will come at you with different angles and has a broader strategy.

Focus Bot is very smart. Out of them all, he’s really easy. Just use the corner tactic. He is not hesitant like Safety Bot. When he comes at a different angle, he will follow through.

Finally, there’s the Mega Bot. He’s the lost programmer, Mark Hertz.  Of course, he is the biggest, fastest, strongest, and smartest. And he is appropriately named. Once you defeat Mega Bot, he will get thrown out of the ring!  You have brought back the lost programmer!

programmer sad

After you’re both transported back home, you get a little present from the now famous Bucket Bot. It’s a terrific Bucket Bot Costume! Congrats, you’ve finished the Mocktropica Bonus Quest!

Trivia

  • Mocktropica Island is Poptropica’s 36th island. It was released on December 19, 2013 for members and January 16, 2014 for non-members. The login screen had the Poptropica logo glitching into small white rectangles. The members-only bonus quest came out on January 9, 2014.
  • The island is a parody of Poptropica itself, hence the name [mock + (pop)tropica]. It is the first island to break the fourth wall, in that it acknowledges that Poptropica is a computer game.
  • The desktop wallpaper contains a “to-do list” which mentions “Balloon Boy Rescue Island.” Balloon Boy is a running gag in Poptropica that started from Counterfeit Island – could we be seeing his actual return this time?
  • Common room: The Bluelocust Restaurant (labeled “est. 2007” – the year Poptropica was released!)
  • Before the island was released, temporary Creator Gamer Guy advertised the robot-smashing game MegaFightingBots.com on the Creators’ Blog. MFB is referenced during the Mocktropica quest, and features heavily in the members-only bonus quest. However, non-members can play MFB by clicking on the computer screen in the university, as well as just visitingmegafightingbots.com!
  • The fraternity house at Ephraim University has the Greek letters Pi Omega Pi, which translates to POP – for Poptropica!
  • The outside of the Poptropica Worldwide Headquarters displays several references to other islands in the P-shaped glass windows. Among the items, you can see a statue of a Greek goddess fromMythology, a shark statue and palm trees from Shark Tooth, the Hair Club from Spy, cacti fromWild West, etc.
  • Inside the basement of Poptropica HQ, there is a doll of Medicine Man from Shark Tooth Island on the ground, and dolls of Dr. Hare from 24 Carrot on the tables. On the wall, there is a poster referencing the Konami Code of video games.
  • The development computer in the basement contains a desktop filled with icons, designed like an early Windows computer, including a System32 folder. Clicking on some of these icons will result in an unhelpful “P” troubleshooter, a parody of Clippy, an old Microsoft Office gimmick.
  • The cost cutter on the top floor of Poptropica HQ says that if she had friends, they’d call her “Slash.” You can ask her if it’s because she plays the guitar (in reference to the guitarist Slash), but she tells you it’s because she slashes expenses.
  • The poem that the writer/professor at Ephraim University was trying to teach his students was O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman.
  • The “We Can Moo It!” moo-tivational poster at the cheese factory is a reference to the American wartime propaganda poster “We Can Do It!”
  • The trash bin in the basement contains some interesting contents, such as pages referencing characters from other islands (Salerno from Lunar Colony as “Salami”, Zeus from Mythology as “Spruce”, El Mustachio from Wild West as “El Mustachito”, Dr. Hare from 24 Carrot as “Dr. Beev”, Binary Bard from Astro-Knights as “Binary Investment Banker”). There was also a page that said Monster Carnival, slashed out by a big ‘NOPE’, plus blueprint pages for ‘the return of Balloon Boy’ (a running gag since Counterfeit Island) and ‘Battle Arena’ (a feature promised for Legendary Swords that was never fulfilled).
  • Also in the trash are random artifacts referencing various tidbits from Poptropica, including: a toy figure of afro guy (the white-skinned, black-haired character that occasionally displays when loading gets glitchy), the bathroom door with the message (seen in New Jersey on Cryptids Island), tickets for the underground tunnel tour from Counterfeit Island, the bag of popcorn fromWimpy Boardwalk, the bottle of Valley Rain from Gamer Guy’s apartment in Zomberry (also, the name is a parody of Mountain Dew), and a mailed travel letter for Joe Stockman from Virus Hunter. After digging through the trash, you’ll eventually find a script for Zomberry Island.
  • If you examine the Zomberry Island script, you’ll find that it’s ridden with typos and talks about what the player can find in Gamer Guy’s (or “Videogame Guy’s”) apartment. At the bottom, the part where it talks about finding the empty Valley Rain bottle in the trash is crossed out in red with the note “Cliched! No more dumpster diving on Poptropica –Jeff” – ironic because you’d just been dumpster diving to find that script in the first place. Jeff may refer to Jeff Kinney, the guy who created Poptropica.
  • At the edge of the cliff of Mt. Funshine, after you’ve changed the mood, the safety guy says “You shall not pass!” – a reference to Gandalf’s famous line from The Fellowship of the Ring.
  • One of the chalkboards at the university says “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog,” a sentence which contains every letter of the English alphabet at least once. The other board has a mind map about woodchucking, a reference to the tongue twister “how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” There is also a ridiculous essay prompt combining rodent-based deforestation, Moby Dick, and the advent of movable type.
  • A large Poptropican-ized portrait of William Shakespeare hangs on the wall of the university, as well as smaller portraits of Jane Austen and Homer.
  • The boy with the orange poofy hair sitting in the second row of the university classroom is a parody of the titular character from Napoleon Dynamite, and his “do it” shirt is stylized like the “vote for Pedro” shirt Napoleon Dynamite wears in the film.
  • A statuette of Rodin’s sculpture The Thinker is nested underneath the cubby hole in the back row of the university.
  • The island editor in the basement is on a “Graycom Tablet 4000 series,” perhaps a reference toWacom drawing tablets. There is also a Zeus statue to the left of the editor.
  • The cake given to you by the focus tester is a Black Forest cake.
  • A horned version of the Skull Mask from Legendary Swords sits on top of some drawers on the second floor of Poptropica HQ. There is also a Dr. Hare doll on a desk.
  • The third floor of Poptropica HQ has a sign advertising “Sports Nectar, Poptropica’s favorite sports drink” – first seen on Cryptids Island.
  • The fourth floor of Poptropica HQ contains large mounted icons of non-existing Poptropica islands, including Aqua Knights Island (the ‘knights’ part of the logo looks like the one for Astro-Knights), Tax Cut Island, The Return of Crawfish (a reference to Skullduggery), and Giant Island (a reference to Cryptids).
  • The trailer video contains a morphing cow, which may be a reference to the viral YouTube video “cows & cows & cows“.
  • You are given the ID badges of Poptropica Creators Lance Pitcher (designer), Billy Jordan (developer), and Max McPatrick (writer). Perhaps these are real-life references to Creators Jon Pitcher, Jordan Leary, and Max Brallier.
  • According to a tweet by professional artist Coralee Lazebnikova, the blond pony-tailed Poptropica worker from the basement is modeled after her.
  • The developer with the sleep mask in the basement says, “All work and no play makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry,” a reference to the proverb “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
  • Members get an additional Mocktropica gear pack, which includes Unfinished costume, Glitch power, and Narf follower. The Unfinished costume is ONLY available until the end of Early Access!
  • Bonus quest: A rogue programmer has conquered a rival website and now rules it like a king. You must venture outside the safety of Poptropica to bring him back — if you can last long enough to find him!

Quick Guide

For a full walkthrough with pictures and more detail, scroll up on this page.

  1. Talk to the lady outside of Poptropica HQ, then go inside HQ and talk to the focus tester who will give you Cake. Then ride the elevator to each floor and talk to all the people inside HQ.
  2. Leave Poptropica HQ and come back in. Talk to the girl from earlier, then go down to the basement and talk to everyone. Then talk to the girl with frazzled blonde hair who will give you 3 ID Badges.
  3. Move the buildings randomly in the island editor and save. Leave the basement, talk to the focus tester, then go to Ephraim University. Go inside and talk to the professor, who will show you a poem. Click on the moving ad until it burns the poem.
  4. Go back to the basement and change the mood to “happy” in the Island Maker Home Edition (on the other computer). Save, leave, and head right until you get to the cheese factory. Enter and talk to the worker, who will give you Cheese Curds when you leave. Equip the box.
  5. Go back to Main Street and press the spacebar to throw a cheese curd near the Narf pet. Go back to the cheese factory to find the Narfs multiplying. Run left all the way to Mt. Funshine and throw a cheese curd over the cliff, then cross the Narf bridge. Go left, climb the mountain, and take the Climbing Axe.
  6. Go back to Main Street, talk to the focus tester, go back to the basement, and change the setting to “night.” Head back to Main Street and talk to the creeper who will give you Counterfeit Coins. Use this to leave Main Street and go back to the cheese factory. Enter and use your Climbing Axe to destroy the machinery, which will bring Lance Pitcher back to HQ.
  7. Change the settings to “day” and “clear” and then climb the mountain again, this time all the way to the top. Talk to the bearded man (Billy Jordan) and beat him at Mancala, which will bring him back to Poptropica HQ.
  8. In the basement, move the buildings around in the island editor from shortest to tallest, then save. Go outside and get to the top of the HQ building to pick up the Soda. Take the Helmet from the safety guy, jump down, and talk to the focus tester about the crate blocking the right side. Go back to the basement and destroy the crate in the island editor, then save and leave.
  9. Enter the university and give the prof his soda. Return to the basement and click on the shuffling luggage bags to reveal a sleeping man. Use the Cake from your inventory to move him, then dig through the trash can and take the Script. Give it to the university prof.
  10. Leave the university, talk to the ad sales lady, then go to the 3rd floor of HQ and pay the ad lady with your coins to get rid of all ads. Go back down and talk to the budget lady. Attempt to leave and you’ll find yourself stuck in a loading screen. Wear your Helmet and pop all the letters. Now you’ll be in the internal servers.
  11. Redirect all the beams as shown in the map on the server floor. Simply go to the red cord and click on it until the red line points downwards, then click the blue cord once, and then the green cord twice. Then a cutscene follows, and all the new managers reveal their true intentions.
  12. In this final boss battle, just keep shooting your coins by clicking on the mega fighting bot over and over until it is destroyed. Move away if it throws rocks or its fists at you. When he’s gone, throw coins at the achievements until they disappear too. Congrats, you’re done!

    When I got the fizzee pop, the safety guy appeared, but he didn’t get the part where he gave me the helmet, cuz it was stuck loading. When I refreshed the page, he was gone, I was on the ground, and I had no helmet. Now, I am stuck on the loading screen where you need the helmet. STUCK. I had to make a new account. I tried reloading and cheese curds and pickaxe and nothing worked.

    • TimmyToothache says:

      Omg I hate new poptropica. It’s so buggy even in a game thats supposed to have bugs! Atleast the old 1 let you save wherever you wanted. D: I miss the good ol’ days. And the new levels are the old good levels too!

  7. anonymous says:

    I wish u could save certain checkpoints and u could load them whenever u wanted in case a glitch gets u stuck

  8. NEON says:

    i never got the safety hat from that guy and now im stuck in that loading screen where u have to break the letters-what should i do?

    • Striped Socks says:

      Is it raining? I had the same problem and I think it was something to do with the rain because once I turned it off i was fine.

  9. Shifty Seal says:

    Okay somehow I didn’t get the helmet (have no idea why) so I’m stuck on the last level where it’s on the loading screen because I don’t have the helmet to break the Poptropica letters. :/

  10. short icicle says:

    every time I talk to someone after that my poptropican’s mouth keeps on moving like it’s talking but it actually isn’t. Is that a part of Mocktropica island of another glitch and my mouth disappears too.

    • Incredible Sword says:

      The way to restart the island is to go to the menu, click the gear in the top left corner, and then there should be a button to restart the island. I had to figure it out, too. Mine glitched and I had to restart as well! 🙂

  11. turbohamster says:

    Um… I’m at the part of the island where you go to pop the poptropica bubbles with the helmet on the loading screen but I never got the helmet. After I got the soda bottle the safety guy never came and I just continued on. Do I need to restart the island?

  12. Sarah says:

    im at the part where youre supposed to get counterfeit popcoins from the guy and the guy isn’t there. What dod I do?

    • IcyFoxPoptropica says:

      Click on the computer in the basement.
      Click on “ISLANDPROHOMEDITION”
      Change “Day” to “Night”.
      Go outside and he will be on Main Street!

  13. AD says:

    HOW TO GET A HARD HAT if you glitched and didn’t get it on the roof, like I did. You go into the building and up to the second floor with the safety inspector, click on the customizer button and the inspector. Click on his hard hat and then hit accept. Now you have the hard hat you need!

  14. Haylbells says:

    Uhm… I didn’t know we were supposed to get a helmet since no one really came forth to give me one or I didn’t really think about returning to the guy. So I’m at the part with the poptropica buffering and I don’t have a helmet.. What do I do?

  15. Popular Storm says:

    When I press spacebar on the boy for the pet to chase after him, the load cursor shows and it doesn’t stop. Do you know why?
    Thanks,
    Popular Storm

  16. IcyFoxPoptropica says:

    I’m going to try this again, but I keep throwing coins at the robot and it turns red, but it doesn’t start throwing rocks at me. D:

    • Louis730 says:

      Did you click on the crate? If still didn’t work refresh page p.s. it will bring you to your last save (Just a suggestion)

  17. Louis730 says:

    Im stuck on the perpetual loading screen part because when I try to pay the Ads lady my character says “Nothing but worthless virtual currency” help!

  18. Val says:

    I’m stuck in between two boss cut scenes, I can’t move and I can’t use my cursor to restart the island. What do I do?

  19. TimmyToothache says:

    Hi I need desperate help. I got the orange soda gave it to the guy, came back to mainstreet was stuck in the box. I rejoined the map and destroyed the box, but now I cant talk to the saftey guy ontop of the roof. I need the helmet to pass the area so please help me!

    • TimmyToothache says:

      I did the hardat thing by customizing, but now I cant get to the blue loading screen where you need the hardat

  20. shoeless fire says:

    that’s weird guys???? everything worked fine for me just a bit freezing but I never had to restart the island

  21. Perfect Comet says:

    Help pls? I’m stuck right after I get the first guy back on the job. He says he changed the scene a little darker but then my backpack thing turns into pixels and crumbles away, and the first computer dude says “Oh no, a critcial glitch! Who will help us?” or something like that, and my mouse is the loading circle. I tried reloading but it won’t work. What should I do?

    • devinbobo14 says:

      your inventory crumbling is part of the game. to get your inventory back, you must give the teacher the “soda pop” you get on the top of Poptropica HQ. Then, he will come back to work for Poptropica HQ and fix the bug, and you will get your inventory icon back, with all of your stuff still in tact. 🙂

  22. Ashlynn Stamps says:

    Hey so my game is glitching. I went to click the trashcan but my computer won’t pop up the hand to click on it. Help? Reloading doesn’t work…

  23. Fast Flame says:

    I left Mocktropica Island to color my hair in 24 Carrot Island and when I came back Mocktropica Island started over, I have no items or achievement or experience talking with anyone, but things like the basement doors were unlocked and the Narfs are still in the chasm making a bridge but nothing else is the same.(mostly)

    When I was just inside the servers thingy, I accidentally pressed on something on my computer and I went back and it took me back to the homepage where I logged in and I got so confused, because the ad is not there, the trash guy is not there, the teacher is not there and I don’t know what to do now…

    • Catherine says:

      Neither did I, I just logged out and logged back and the screen went away, but now I can’t get it back. I’ve been trying to get the guy to give me the helmet by going up to the top of the building and he’ll appear when I click on something in my bag, but nothing happens when I click on him. Can somebody help us because without either you can’t finish the game!
