Poptropica Cheats for Night Watch Island
Jump off the blimp and walk right, past the Bananabees. Talk to the people in the overnight line outside Twin Palms Mall. Hey, doesn't that sound like Twin Pines Mall, from the movie Back to the Future? They all seem excited about this new gadget from "MacGuffin" for various reasons. The mall is closed, and won't open until 7:00 AM. Run right to the Parking Lot--that sign with the clock is from the movie--and talk to the security guard, who has just lost his job. Go past the grey car... hey, that looks like a slightly modified version of the DeLorean from the movie Back to the Future! Talk to the guy in the PrintFax car. Then talk to the store manager, who will ask you to apply for a security guard job at the mall. Your chance in! Run left and press the red buzzer on the door to the security office. This time you'll be let in (well, sort of reluctantly).
Inside the security room is a bank of monitors showing scenes from across the mall... nothing suspicious The lady explains that the last guy was let go because he was "seeing and hearing things that weren't there." Now she'll give you a test: as nightwatchmen need keen eyes, in the next minigame you need to study a picture, click next, and spot the differences. Not much I can help you here, but one clue is to focus on the small details, especially the ones that are hidden among similar things and the ones that are in a otherwise blank space by themselves. I'll admit, it's a difficult game -- and my short-term memory is awful. You have 10 clicks and 5 differences to spot, so there is plenty of room for error. Here is one photo for if you need help:
Now she'll ask you to get onto the scooter (like a Segway) and patrol the mall. Explore around for a bit, then click on one of the training robots to say, "no loitering!". They'll say "Yes, sir" and walk away. Now go all the way right and go to the next part of the mall. Talk to the robot granny, then go all the way right and click on the robot boy to scold him for running the wrong way up the escalator. Hey, I love doing that! He'll sizzle out and explode. Now, that is slightly less exciting. Run left and you'll see someone trying to rob the old woman! Chase the guy into the Atrium and you'll stop him... with a spectacular tackle that leaves him sizzling on the floor. Go to the security office and look around. Observe the map. The look at the TV screen. Hey, there's a disturbance in MacGuffin's! That's the store everyone is talking about! Look at the map to see where the store is and leave by the way you came in. Run right across the Atrium, into Mall Right. Take the elevator up twice to get to the third floor. Aargh, elevator music! Walk right to MacGuffin's and enter it.
Whoa, look at all these crazy, useless gadgets! Walk past them, to the sofa chair with the ringing coming from it. Click on it to pick up Gus's (the old security guard) phone. He'll walk you through using it. Basically, click Home and an icon to use something and click the question mark for a tutorial. Look around with the security camera and return to the main screen. There's also a Planet Slug Game. The trick is, drag the slingshot to the microphone at the left and release to hit the first monster. Then shoot from the bottom of the oval that the mic is in to destroy an asteroid in your way. Lastly, shoot from just above the asteroid to beat the first (and only) level. Click the power button in the top right to return to the mall.
You can see live feeds from 12 stores:
This is a list of people you can call for various reasons:
Hey, there's an alert on your phone! Click "View Camera" and move your mouse to the box with the helmet out of it. Run left and take the elevator one floor down. Run right and into Slugger's Athletic Keepsakes. Call the owner and he will tell you about his Honus Wagner card. Walk right and click on the statue to move it, then punch in the code 6723. The card is still in there! Click on it. The owner will call you, and you can put it back. Leave the store and go left to the Atrium. You have another alert! Open your security camera and go to the Giuseppe's Toy Store view. Move the mouse until the frame begins flashing red, above the door and just under the light, on the railway track. When it turns solid red, Gus will ask you to go check on it. This is how most alerts will work, by the way. Run to Mall Left and take the elevator all the way to the top. Giuseppe's in the second store to the left. Enter it and run right, picking up the robot toy on the ground. Walk back left and grab the red Lil'Peepers toy bird. These must be setting off the lights. Return to the Atrium... ANOTHER ALERT!!!
It's from the tanning salon. Move the mouse to the leftmost tanning bed, which is smoking. Gus knows what's going on but wants to keep you in suspense, so go there and investigate! Run into Mall Right and past the new store, into Sizzle Tanning Salon. Walk left and click on the bed. Hey, there's an overtanned lady in there! She doesn't care that the mall is closed if she can get a few more minutes on "Simmer". *sigh* Leave and walk left until another alert, this time at the electronics store. Hey, the camera feed is gone! Maybe someone doesn't want you to see something going on there. Take the elevator to the third floor and run right past MacGuffin's, into Good Deals Electronics Shop. Walk left to the TV screens. Hey, there's a silhouette of a person walking out of the shop with something! Anyway, leave the store for now and we can investigate later. Go to the atrium... ALERT!
It's from the Crawl Mart. The coral snake Eddie, whose habitat is in the far right side of the store, is missing! Call the store owner, who'll tell you he might be hiding behind his favorite rock, and enter Mall Left. Run left into Crawl Mart, the second shop to the left. Run right and... the snake is gone! Answer the call, which will tell you that you may be able to lure the snake with one of his favorite snacks. But we have to find him first, so walk out... hey, there's Eddie! Chase him! You'll have to follow him into the Atrium and then into Mall Right. But now where is he? He's hiding in certain objects around Mall Right, and you'll know where because the item is shaking. The room he's in's door will also show him. He'll jump out ans escape when you click on the object. Here they are:
- MacGuffin's: Pocket-size Porta-Potty.
- Sizzle: The right side tanning bed.
Hmm, there appears to be nothing wrong with this store... signal lost again! Quick, take the elevator to the top floor and run all the way right. Enter Carnival Costumes and walk left, to the cop and robber costumes. Hey, that's a real robber! He'll knock you flat and dash out. Follow him to MacGuffin's and hide in the corner by the QuickCharger gadget he's probably trying to steal. Here he comes! You'll scare him off and in his rush, he'll drop a back door key. Pick it up, exit, and walk right into Good Deal Electronics. Walk all the way left and use your key to open the door marked Employees Only. Oops, you can't see. So use your robot toy, which will run around and keep the motion-activated lights on. Enter the backroom and run right, to the TV screen. Pick up the paper there, which lets Preston, the current owner of PrintFax, have a new store at the mall. Huh? Gus says that the strange occurrences started soon after Preston applied for a new store. We need to reach PrintFax. Exit the store and run left, to Mall Left.
Take the elevator to the top floor and run left, towards PrintFax. AAUGH! The robber will slam into you in an employee golf cart and run away toward the Atrium. You'll never catch him on foot, you'll need one of those mall guard scooters. Gus says they're in the manager's office, but what's the password. He'll send a litany of possible passwords to your Notes app, but the correct one is "FROST". Exit into the Atrium and walk all the way right. Take the escalator up and hop off left, into the Manager's Office. Try to avoid the robber on the golf cart all this time. Walk left and click on the little green screen, then type in "FROST". The scooter will be yours, but... it needs to be charged. Exit, drop down, go to Mall Right, and take the elevator all the way up. Go right and enter MacGuffin's, then grab the QuickCharger. Then return to the Manager's Office and USE the gadget to charge the scooter. Oops, that didn't survive very long. But you can hop on and ride now!
Drop down to the bottom floor and run around back and forth until the robber comes down the left escalator towards you. Drive towards him and knock him off the cart. Go over to see who he... hey, that's a dummy robot! You've been fooled! And here comes even more embarrassment .. Eddie finally has come out of hiding to steal your scooter and race off somewhere towards Mall Right! *sigh* How did things go so wrong? Walk off left and into Mall Left. Another alert, this time in PrintFax! The robber is photocopying something! Run up to the top floor and enter the store. Run to the rightmost copier, click on Menu, and then click REPRINT LAST SCAN. It's the immensely valuable Honus Wagner card! Exit the store and run into Mall Right. Take the elevator one floor up and enter Slugger's. Run right and... oh, no, the card is gone! Along with the safe. It must have fallen into the store below! Exit and run left, into the Atrium. Take the escalator up and enter the Manager's Office. Click on the Employee of the Month picture to reveal the blowtorch behind. Who hides that in the manager's office??? Dash back to Mall Right and melt the lock on the new store. Enter, run right and... THE ROBBER!
The owner of PrintFax must have bought the new store and hired a burglar to tumble the safe into his own store, where he would replace it with a photocopied facsimile! And now he's getting away! Quick, follow him up into the vent system. Equip your blowtorch and click on red panels to melt them. Here's the way:
- run right, melt, run right, melt, go up
- go all the way right, melt the red panel
- drop down, run right, melt
- go up, jump left, THERE'S THE ROBBER!
- melt the panel above that's closest to the gears
- jump up left, go all the way left
- melt the panel underneath you, drop down left
- THERE'S THE ROBBER! He'll knock you off to the left.
Operation Training Robot Clean-up
Top Secret, Members Only
Your shift lasts for another two hours, so what do you do during that time? The answer comes to you in the form of Slugger's owner chasing a mischievous training robot across the atrium. The robot has stolen his set of collectible 1960s Canadian sports cards and scattered them across the mall! It's your task to find the set and return all nine cards to Slugger's safely. Here are all the locations:
- Middle, Saturn: Climb the statue and jump up to Saturn's rings to find the Rudolph card.
- Top right, Space Time Pizza: Click on the right-side dough. Click on the Hayes card under it quickly.
- Bottom right, Jolly Gifts: Click on the can just next to the cash register. The Williams card will pop out.
- Bottom left, Crawl Mart: Climb from the parrot cages to the second floor. Click on the Bonds card when no piranhas are above it to extract it. Timing is crucial!
- Middle left, In the Now: Click on the huge speaker up to the left and the Blanchard card will drop out.
- Middle right, No Pain No Gain Sports Center: Run right, pick up a bat, turn on the pitching machine, then run to the plate. Hit the spacebar when a ball comes near you to knock the Barnes card down.
- Bottom middle, Sizzle's Tanning Salon: Click on the dial next to the rightmost tanning bed until it turns yellow, then click on the bed to grab the Frederick card.
- Middle right, Slumbertown: From the door, jump up and bounce off the purple mattress. This will shake out the Turner card.
Outside (exit the mall through the Security Office in the Atrium)
- Jump up the window ledges until you reach the glass dome at the top of the mall to find the Louis card.
