Black Island: Walkthrough Guide

Black Island
By: Helsinki Noir


This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough with hints, tips, solutions and answers for the iOS and Android game Black Island by Helsinki Noir. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.


Chapter 1:

1. Pick up the knife. Then leave the cave.

2. Look at the ground and find a flute. I’m not sure how I opened it, but there’s a map inside. Then, go back and head towards the glimmer and pick up the anchor.





3. Open the map and go to the harbour. Tap on the shed, then pick up the key.



4. Tap on the car. Use the key to unlock the front door. Open the door and grab the flashlight. Then open the back door and grab the screwdriver.



5. Go back to the shed. Use the screwdriver to open the panel next to the door. This is how to solve the puzzle.
A = 2
B = A + 3 = 5
C = A + B = 7
D < C & > 5 (less than 7 & greater than 5) = 6
E = 2
F = B + 1 = 6


6. Open the door and enter to watch the video.

The clue from the binoculars isn’t making sense to me. I think it refers to the piano but the pattern isn’t working for me. Can anyone explain what to do here? Totally stuck.

On the right side off the cottage is a shed with a lock. Use the clue from the dirt: ada 76 makes 14176 and for the upper part off the lock use the clue from the binoculars

Never mind – I’m in the last chapter and in the house 🙂
I’m sure to find the matches!
It’s short but really it is a good game!

I’m in the cottage and I have opened up the panel on the fire and have found a solitaire puzzle but I’m stuck? I managed to block 2 of the holes on the solitaire board but can’t figure out how anyone got any ideas?

You need to keep jumping over pegs until the count goes down to zero.

Where do I start from on the solitaire? I have 2 holes filled in at the bottom middle vertical column, can you jump over same one again and can you go vertically?

The flute was solved by you clicking on it in the pattern shown in musical notes: long-short-short-long.

Thanks for posting about this game. I’m enjoying it, mostly because the voice has a British accent, as otherwise it would drive me bonkers. Free helps, too. 🙂

Okay I take that back. The game is way too short, even for free. Some strange ways of “solving” locks/puzzles. Perhaps they should have waited until they had more chapters before making the game public, as I’m not sure it’s either intriguing or satisfying enough to call me back for more when it is available.

But thanks again for posting about it. You definitely have my attention in my quest to find more games like Monument Valley and The Room.

Agreed, the production values are excellent. It’s one of the few games in which I wasn’t skipping the video scenes when I could.

Device 6…I’m not sure I’d heard about it, but then I’m late to the iPad, getting mine just last year. Your review of the game definitely sent me to get it immediately. I had to smile when I read your mention of DOOORS. I’d been thinking I really should have mentioned that game along with the other two, not just because of its brilliant use of format, but also because it led me here. 🙂

at least it was free for iPad – not so for android 🙁
I’m still enjoying it but the google reviews were right about the price vs size of the game.

Anyone solved peg solitaire? It’s driving me crazy. I got the counter down to one, it won’t go any lower than that. Please help!

Solitaire puzzle
I can’t even get that far can appunwrapper show a video of how to do it? Pretty please?

Things were going well somewhat until I reached the puzzle of the button sequence. Why should you make it go fast? Not only I got retinitis pigmentosa and playing this on a PC rather than mobile device, but I do also have a slow motor. This thing is just unsolvable.
One more thing: the sequence keeps on beeping if I miss a press; and I wouldn’t be sure where to start again and the only solution is… to reset the whole thing again and do it.
This last thing just screwed the whole game.
