First, go to Spy Island. Enter the spy headquarters and jump up to the top where the green-and-black screen is. Talk to Director D and get the Decoder Kit from him.

Now, exit and jump to the top of the building. There will be a spy crouched there. Pretty neat, huh?

Using your Decoder Kit, translate the message from Director D. The coded message says, when Dr. Spyglass points to a symbol, choose the one that faces the… “OPPOSITE DIRECTION”.

Dr. Spyglass, Eye Doctor

Go to Dr. Spyglass’s building to the right. Take the eye test, but whatever the doctor points to, choose the “E” that faces the opposite direction. (An “E” facing upwards would mean that you needed to choose an “E” facing downwards.)

If you did it correctly, he will tell you to meet him upstairs.

Then he will go upstairs. Exit the eye doctor’s building, climb the ladder to the left until you see a door, and enter it. Once inside, talk to Dr. Spyglass again and he will give you a Chameleon Suit that will make you almost invisible.

The First Spy

Go to the Docks and get the message from the guy in the trash can. He will give you a message that says, “There’s a secret entrance to the warehouse ON THE ROOF.”

Put on your chameleon suit, and in this area, climb as high as you can while avoiding the B.A.D. guards, because if you bump into them, they will knock you over! Be careful; they can see you when you move. You’ll find a door. Go in and continue. (Remember to be wearing your chameleon suit.)

spy2

Beware of the B.A.D. guard dogs (Fang, Slasher, and Fluffy). They’ll bite you if you get too close. If you get knocked over, you end up on the floor above you, so be careful. Eventually, you’ll reach a room you can go inside.

Go past the dogs by walking carefully. Stop when they get close. They can’t see you because of your suit, and they will walk on past you. Do this with all the dogs. At the bottom, go left.

spy3

You should see some little platforms above you. Get on them, and jump to the other side. You should have landed in a small hidden room. Talk to the tied up spy there to free him.

He will give you a Laser Pen and a satellite clue.

The Second Spy

Now leave the warehouse and go back to Main Street. Then go all the way to the right and go to Balding Avenue. If you continue to the right you will see a guy wearing green camouflage. Talk to him and he’ll give you a message that says, “There’s a top B.A.D. agent in BISTRO.”

B.A.D. Bistro

To access the B.A.D. control center, you’ll need a B.A.D. agent’s fingerprint. Keep going right until you get to a little restaurant called the B.A.D. Bistro. Take off your suit and walk in (the chameleon suit isn’t allowed inside). Go all the way to the right to the kitchen and talk to the chef.

Ask to apply for the job and he will tell you that you need to pass a test. It’s simply a game of Simon Says. Watch the order he taps the ingredients, then imitate it. You’ll have to do this a few times. If you win the game then he’ll give you a Chef’s Hat and you become a chef; if you lose, try again.

Next, go to the table with people seated around it and click on the guy with the mustache. He’ll ask you to fill up his glass. You’ll get the glass with his Fingerprint on it.

Go back into the kitchen and jump on the fridge, then jump on the shelf and there will be an opening above you. Go through it and jump from lamp to lamp until you reach the wall. Then fall to the ground and leave the bistro.

The Warning

Head right and you’ll see another guy in camouflage. Talk to him and he’ll give you an item – File X – that contains a decodable secret message.

If you read it the way you’d normally read a letter, it tells you what a great man Director D is and how you have to trust him. But don’t get fooled too easily!

This file really contains the opposite message than what meets the eye at first glance. Here’s how to decode it: all you need to do is read the first letter of every line! It says “DON’T TRUST DIRECTOR D.”  How devious! (Note: You don’t have to know what the file actually says to complete this quest, but it’s good to be warned about Director D. first, and you’re probably curious anyway.)

Toupee Terrace

Now continue right over to Toupee Terrace. Now you’ll want to carefully get to the top of the house without getting zapped. It may seem hard at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy. What you have to do is jump from window ledge to window ledge until you reach the top, and watch out for the yellow zappers, because they’ll knock you off if you bump into them!

When you get to the top, you’ll find a window with bars in front of it. Get in front of the window and it will show a close-up of the window. Your mouse is now the laser pen. Click on the bars to cut them to pieces, then enter.

Go inside, and you’ll be in the attic. Walk left and you will see another secret agent tied up there. Free him and he will give you a Grappling Bowtie.  This will help you reach higher heights. He’ll also give you another satellite clue.

The Third Spy

Exit the attic and go back to Balding Avenue. Using the grappling bowtie, go as high as you can, until you see the sign for the rooftops. Go up. (To use the grappling bowtie just click on the bowtie on the bottom left and click which way you want to go.)

Use your grappling bowtie to try to grab another platform. (Be careful, there’s a B.A.D. guard there!) Now use your grappling bowtie to try to grab another platform or antenna at the top left. Talk to the guy there. Now aim your bowtie to the far right and try to grab another antenna.

When you swing over there and are directly above the building, click again (at the top of the screen) so that they let go of the rope, otherwise they will swing back. Enter the tube.

Greenhouse

You are now in a greenhouse. Take off your Bowtie, because wearing it will make this part more difficult. Go to the far right and you will see a cherry bomb tree. Click on the cherry bomb and move the cherry bomb left.

spy9

Now push it to the flower pad on the ground and it will bounce to a higher floor. Get on that floor and push it to the left until it falls on the lower platform. Push it onto the other bouncy flower pad and it will go to a higher platform.

spy7

(Watch out for the flytraps. They will throw you off!) Go to the platform, and finally, to the cage with the spy agent girl trapped inside.

Now push the cherry bomb in front of the cage and wait until it blows up. When it does, the cage door breaks and the last spy will be freed.

The spy will give you a pair of Ultra-Vision Goggles and the last satellite clue.

Defeating Director D.

Now leave the greenhouse and go back to Balding Avenue. Go right past Toupee Terrace, all the way to the right again until you reach the B.A.D. control center. Here you’ll need to put on your ultra-vision goggles. You will see that the zaps are timed, so you will know when it is safe to move.

Move along to the right, then when you reach a dead end, go up. Soon you should see a door. Click it and use the fingerprint on the glass to unlock it.

Once you’re inside the room, climb up the platforms, avoiding all zaps. When you reach the top you will see a computer. Click on it and enter the passwords. The three passwords for the teleporter are 1: laser 2: hair 3: removal.

A Close “Shave” with Minibots & Director D.

And then… Director D. will show his true self. Go into the teleporter and Director D. will talk about his plan to make everyone in Poptropica BALD!

spy14

Then his mini bots will come out. To destroy the mini bots, lead them to the yellow orbs in the four corners of the room. When they hit an orb, they will explode.

There will be 4 minibots, and there are 4 yellow orbs – one on the bottom right, one on the bottom left, one on the top right and one on the top left.

Use your bowtie to help you get to the top parts. When Director D. fights you with his machine, make it crash onto the ceiling four times. To do this, get onto the top of the machine while it is moving and wait for it to crash. (You will know when a crash was successful if you see the word “CRUNCH”!)

Alternatively, you can use your bowtie to get yourself on the ceiling, then hold on so that you stay swinging on the ceiling. You will be luring Director D.’s machine to you, and when it gets to you, it will crunch on the ceiling but knock you off, where you can continue to try and crunch the flying machine again.

Well done, agent—or should I say, director?

Once you’ve defeated Director D, you will be brought back to the headquarters. The top secretary at the spy headquarters will present you with the quest reward: the Spy Island Medallion and credits to spend at the Poptropica Store. Director D will be locked up in a little prison cell inside headquarters, and you will be the new director! Congratulations!

At the beginning of the quest, you might have noticed there was a screen in the spy headquarters that said, “Welcome, Agent (your character’s last name).” Now that you’re the new director, the screen will now say “Director” instead! For example, if your Poptropican’s name is Scary Tomato (that’s me), you would be “Director Tomato” after you defeat Director D. (This doesn’t apply in common rooms, though.)

Good work out there, fellow spy.

    Guys there is a cheat for this island. When you get the finger-printed glass, press CNTRL+ SHIFT+S so your skin changes color. Now you will be able to keep the glass until customized away!

  2. Sneaky Cheetah says:

    Thank you Slanted Fish!! I really needed a guide to help me with Spy Island, and with your help, I have earned the medallion!! Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

  3. Muddy Flipper says:

    fyi, you don’t actually don’t need to use the bowtie when you’re trying to get to the top parts when you’re defeating the minibots; you can just jump on top of director d’s maching and the anti-gravity will help you land on the top electric orbs; you should do the top ones last because its easier to crash director d’s robot against the ceiling since you’re already there

  4. Golden Comet says:

    Hey Guys,
    I don’t know what’s going on, but whenever I exit an area or a building I transport right back to the HQ. I can’t even go into the eye doctor building. It’s very frustrating. If anyone knows how to solve this problem, please reply.

    Thanks,
    Bony Shark

  10. Fast Fire says:

    I can’t get upstairs, Dr. Spyglass is already upstairs and every time I go up the ladder to the door I just get put back downstairs, on many of my other accounts I’ve been able to beat the island but I can’t get the invisible suit so I cant beat the island. please respond!

  11. Nice Lobster says:

    ?

    slantedfish: If you pressed the keys Ctrl, Shift, R, it randomizes your character. 😛
