Thank you for this guide, as it has helped me through some confusing quests. I was wondering, however, if anyone can tell me where all the shells are on Frozen Vale? I have found all but one, and need the last for the chest. Thanks.

Hey all, I'm working on screenshots of the things to be found on each island. Before I go too far with it, though, would someone check that it's actually the same in every game? Here's dolphin island's gems:

And here's monkey's:

YEAH, WOO-HOO! I beat it. And I got the happy ending. Everyone is wealthy, Aruko is a legend, blah, blah, blah.

Jay, now what? Any suggestions on another game like this one?

Hi e1!! Thanks for all your hints and tactics..i couldnt of made it this far if it weren't for you.

I have made it all the way to Guardian Moon and have spent 3 days trying to figure out the large light puzzle..followed the hint but i can't solve it.

Does anyone have a screenshot of what ones to click in order to get them all to light? I really dont want to go on without solving this one. Please help... I am about to give up totally.
Thanks in advance

Plopy --
the two secret island that wont open up

If you are talking about the 2 secret islands,lonely iceberg and the lost temple.

lonely iceberg

you need to find and assemble all of five parts of a fishing rod on Frozen Vale Island go fishing near a ripple pool (there is one up north west near a guide stone) exchange the fish for the lonely ice burg map at the hut where old man and penguin live

as for the lost temple

there are two requirement steps you need to do in order get the lost temple map

step 1 (to make the lost temple map chest appear)

you need to go back to worship island and do the purple sparking sub quest

look under the faq on top of this page
Totem Tribe FAQ --> worship island -->
"What are the purple dots on Worship Island for?" for more detail steps

step 2 ( to unlock the chest )

for this , you need to collect all five shaman mask, Ness post an screen shot of all the treasure pic with all the location of all five mask on February 13, 2009 5:59 AM (on page 23)

type ctrl-f to find the date and the time

hope this help

I have been playing this game since it came out, great game. I am on my third time now. I have checked on here for hints a few times, so I though maybe this might be of some help to those looking for screenshots of bolts on mist island.

This is where you might first see the lighting hitting the ground:

Then this shows up:

Then here is one:

Another one:

Last one:

Don't forget to go back to the guy that needs them so you can get something in return:

I love this site, its helped me so much. But I am really stuck on finding the last pineapple in Worship Island, I even went through the FAQ sheet and it even said they couldnt find the 12th one,,,,Please Help!!!!

LS

I haven't confirm whether they are correct yet, but my best advise is to do something like jay has done with the missing fruits on worship island. that is to have the whole island screenshot. kudos to him since that island is the largest map of the game

it will be less-confusing and time consuming
to second-guessing where exactly is that gem.

that my 2 cents and hope you don't take offense to it :)

Reply

xasher,

A fully-pieced screenshot won't be any help if the gems aren't in the same places from game to game.

Actually I did consider stitching the entire island together, but Mushroom alone took over 40 shots to do effectively, and in order to get it to a reasonable upload size I would have had to drop the size and resolution to a point that would make gem-hunting fairly useless. The clipped mosaic seemed more practical.

Reply

On Mist Island, the keeper of tower tells the woman to bring him something nice from the water and he will let her in. There is only one body of water. The tablet (or whatever those thing are called) says sometimes you can find something you can't even see. I presume it means the gift for the keeper, but I have clicked every inch of the water to no avail. Help! By the way, a belated thanks to Jay for answering another dumb question of mine yesterday.

Reply

It is possible to get all the gems on lonely iceberg without the fog cheat. The trick is to take your scouts around the outer most edges of the center island. That will give them sight range to open the fog of war enough to grab the 12 gems that are on the outer pieces of land.

You should be able to click on the water, in middle I think but click everywhere and you will get a black pearl. You can't see where it is.. Give this to the tower man.

Reply

teenie--you don't need a screen shot to figure the puzzle on Guardian here is what you do

click the top left orb and then click each orb in its row and then each orb in its column--7 clicks total. then go to the next unlit orb and do the same--click on it and then each one in its row, in its column. do this to each unlit orb.

Reply

I have been playing for 2 weeks now except for the game telling what primary things to do, there are no clues or anything on the other opstacles on what to do. Like secondary thing you can do. or need to do on the islands the game is nice but not enough inside clues of what secondary things to really to do next. I did have fun with the primary thing to do so do have fun but you will get frustrated with the secondary things.

This is my first time trying to end the game. I didn't find this site until I was 75% done the game so my rainbow road was never near 100% so the Guardian Moon was never an option for me. Here is my question:

I have revealed the true alien and now I am hunting purple crystals to destroy them. However, I believe I have only found four (I'm guessing there are five since there are five around the alien). This may be a dumb question, but is there one I may have covered up with a building or something....or one that isn't inherently obvious? My entire map seems to be uncovered and I can't seem to find the last one.)

Reply

For the last posting....update....perhaps there are 6 and not 5. I may have found 5.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP i cant do the 6 lights on comet island and i cant get past the green crystals please help me thanks

Hey ya'll not to be the 100th with a similar question -- thanks for the help w/ painting indexing the missing gems... i finally went back and re-repainted mine as bright yellow smiley faces to helpmyself. All I have left is 2 in the Cradle of the North, 9 on the Comet Crash Site, and 2 on Lonely Island.

Any suggestions from experience with those last gems? If the crash site turns black do you lose the gems?? I wouldn't ask if I wasn't at my wits end!!

Thank you!

Ok, I really need help. I'm on Witch island and I've already found 6 of the roots, but I can't get them to go any further on the island because there's a big ice hill blocking the only way to get there. I need to melt the ice hill and move on so I can find the rest of the roots, but how am I supposed to use the fire to melt it without the fire spell thing?? I can't acess any fire!!
HELP!!

Gamegirl, 9 on comet crash sounds like the

crossbow and gem hills. You can blow up one each of the blue, green, and orange mountain-y things with the crossbow; each yields 3 gems.

I have begun to tear my hair out, figuratively speaking. Mist Island has me flummoxed. I even printed out the map on the other website that shows all the hidden paths, but I can't get that stupid woman to take any of them. The path that leads to the extra part on top might as well not be there because she can't find it. Is there a secret to leading her besides the eye?

I was stuck on Mist Island for awhile, too. You have to use the eye to move her, but just move it a tiny bit at a time. Use the mini map to find the paths. Patience and persistence!

Hello everybody - this is my first time doing this so I kinda don't really know what I'm doing...

Ok - I've made it to the last level, but...

I am missing a 'treasure' - eg: the bracelet, necklace, cloak of invisibility, etc. etc...It's the one in the very top right corner of the treasure chest screen - where do I find it? I thought I've done everything, but obviously not...PS - thanks TONS to those who suggested/explained how to paint the gems - never would have found them all otherwise!!!

If anyone can help that would be great.

I need help fineing the coin on Frozen Vale Island please show me where to click I have tried the location but noting is working

Fortunately I managed to find a couple of walkthrus, including this one, so first of all, thanks to everyone who suffered before me to bring me this info!!

That said, for Lost Temple Island (sometimes refered to here as Pirate Island), there are five vents that emit a color code when you click on them. The other walkthru I have says that if you input the color code into the shrine (where there are five colored things & 5 without color, like the one on Red Rock Island by the idol) - then after each color code is entered, you see a reflection in the pool of a place on the island where X literally marks the spot. It said you're supposed to find the matching area of island and click on where the pool showed the X to be for treasure. Well, I tried that & it doesn't seem to work. Anybody here know what to do??

i brought the pearl to the man in the tower, but nothing happened. when i click on it, it gives me the choice of upgrading. did i do something wrong? I'm on mist island, btw

Yesterday I want to stop playing and click the Quit bottom. After few minutes I went back there was not the message that I can save the game it was really closed. I saw my desktop.

For RG Goodwin. Those instructions are correct. Make sure you start your code from left to right so you begin with the furthest away little brown shrine. Entered correctly to map will automatically appear in the lake although hazy. You just need to match it to the same place on the island and click where the x would be. You are probably looking in the wrong part of the island.

For Pitabean

I remember having trouble finding pineapples although which one you have left to find is anybody's guess. There was one I thought was very well hidden - behin the foliage part of a palm tree so the green bits that stick out of the pineaple top blended in perfectly with the palm tree foliage. Sneaky eh!

Hello and thanks for a very helpful walkthrough! Can anyone help me with beating the Shade King at Ruins of Dreams Shore?

hey..i would like to say that i really appreciate the help i get from this walkthrough..thanks to you guys for replying and giving me tips..this game is really exciting..the puzzles are hard but not impossible..it just takes time to figure it out..and the seek and find part..man that's tough because everything's small and you really have to look hard..but once you get through it, it would be such a relief..salute to whoever that created this game..

Mist island

One of the bulbs appear when you light all of the spheres on the tablet near the water. You need to click on bricks untill all four of them light

Reply

Donna - There is a button for each section of those puzzles that turns on and off the lights.

"One is essential, two are too much" refers to how many lights in each section that must be on.

For that particular puzzle, the number of lights to be on in each section must be 1.

I hope that helps. :)

ok i found what to do with the building, but still don't know what fires to light, or where torches are

For xnyr re: Beetle Island

The fires are at the bottom of the screen - take the path to the right of your village across the water - they are in a circle surrounding three big bonfires - I don't know the exact sequence to get them all lit, there is a pattern to it though, I mostly guessed and lucked out. When you get the fires lit you will know what to do with the building with the tree outline.

I loved reading that you stayed up all night playing the game - I went to bed around 4am three nights in a row & I have a 2 year old waking me up at 8am :) - glad to know I'm not the only one...

ok i didn't follow the cardinal rule of putting towers on the edge near the water. I found them.

Reply

I managed to get to 99% before entering the comet, and I'll be darned if I could find any more gems anywhere, so I gave up.

Now, I may be being totally thick here, but I can't seem to actually go anywhere inside the comet. I've built up my village/army, and I can get to the bit where the idol is but that's it. Or do I have to defeat the idol thing before the rest is accessible?

[Edit: You must defeat the idol. -Jay]

I use a new slot in the game and replayed it, and I found that missing shell.

Reply

Thanks for the answer on Lost Temple Island. I finally figured out that those were the instructions to find the runes; however, thanks to Painting everything in sight, I had already found them. (LOL) No wonder I couldn't see anything, I'd already picked them up!

Anyway - when you're Inside the Comet, there appear to be several areas inside the crystal besides the one in the NE that hold the statue. Does anybody know how to get into these other areas? I've tried taking my scouts there, but they can't seem to find a way thru the crystal.

Look at questions 5 AND 6 under FAQs. Although I cannot improve on an already tremendous walkthrough...

1. collect all the items to create the fishing pole (fishing line reel must be uncovered in top right corner of map).

2. locate circular "swirls" in water and put fishing pole in to collect fish.

3. give the fish to either the nice man in the hut or one of his many penguins.... this generous act gives you the map to Lonely Iceberg.

NorthernLady - sorry for the delay, I've added the following information to our walkthrough guide section above the comments:

How do I install a newer version and keep my saved progress?

  1. Backup your data files to a safe location. Make sure you get all quest-xxxx-nn.dat files, as well as your profiles.dat file. The location of these files depends on where you purchased the game from, and whether you're running XP or Vista. Refer to the walkthrough guide section under "Saved game data" for a rough idea where to find them.

  2. Install the new version:

    • If you're installing a new version from the same site you downloaded the old one from:

      You should be able to just install the new one over top of the old one and your saved game and profiles should be preserved. If not, follow the "Restore your saved game files" instructions below.

    • If you're installing a new version from a different site you downloaded the old one from:

      • Uninstall the old game.

      • Install the new one.

  3. Restore your saved game files:

    • Start the game, create a new profile, then quit out of the game. This step will create the "Enkord\Totem Tribe" directory where your saved game files will need to be restored to. IMPORTANT: Note where this directory is for the next step.

    • Copy your saved game files (quest-xxxx-nn.dat files plus profiles.dat) from step #1 to the "Enkord\Totem Tribe" directory you found in the previous step, replacing any existing files.

    • You should now be able to start the game and pick up where you left off.

I need a little help. Since I do not know if this is a 'spoil' I will phrase it as such just to be safe:

I there a preferred tower to use against the stone aliens? Are there preferred attacks against any enemy? I know that you need arrow towers against flying critters but what about others? The stone guys show up first on Volcano Island but right now I need to defend against them inside the Comet.

Thanks for any info you can give.
