The paths will open up at some huge event for you to discover. I didn't know it the first time through and didn't look around. So if something big happens, take the time to check them out, and you'll see the change in the crystal structures. Good luck!

I looked at your screen shots. Sorry I can't help. It's too hard to see but the closest I could see might be behind the mountain in #19. FYI... I had the same question earlier. The only way to know what gems you have and what you've missed is to keep track from the very beginning. 21 gems on each island except for Volcano... only 20 there. I had to use the paint cheat to find 'em all. Also, did you open that chest in screen shot #15?

destroy that frost tower and build a worker hut there. Your workers will eventually wander over to the chest for you. :)

Thanks nov. I read that in the walkthrough but was wondering if there was a better way. Since I can't seem to keep any buildings up long enough it doesn't seem to matter. I'll keep trying and check back here for updates.

Many people do swear by the arrow towers for the attacking stones. The thunder towers also work very well. What worked best for me was to cluster several around the places where the stones always pop up. They oftem get zapped to smithereens even before they get completely out of the ground. The other place to cluster towers is in the north. Attacks start there after you've encountered the idol, so be prepared. It helped me to also have at least one worker hut near each of those areas, so repairs can start sooner. Also put a hut near the path to the idol and build towers in the idol's lair. That will speed up its defeat.

novten82 --

The most important tactic to defeating the Scuzzbucket Squid is to take your scouts to find each of the six purple pylons, then click on them to destroy them. I hear that unless you do that - or *gag* feed your people to the toothy mouths by placing the battle flag over them - every time the Obnoxious Octopus dies, his lifeline returns to 50%. So it's pylons or people (about 50 per mouth, I've been told *shudder*). Just remember to keep the towers going in the lair. Someone told me by doing that, they were able to conquer the Calimari-in-Training in just a few minutes instead of hours. I'm almost ready to do battle for the second time, so I'll test it for myself - I forgot the towers last time, too. Good luck!

Guardian Moon

Well, thanks to all the hints, suggestions, and discussion on this web site, I have made it to the Guardian Moon and I'm stuck. Yes, it's the light puzzle (I have version 1.02, so I don't have extra goodies to solve, thank goodness). I have read the info above in the blue box and every post I can find on the puzzle, but I am getting nowhere. I've tried clicking on all the lights, on just the unlit lights, rows then columns, columns then rows, and random lights. What am I doing wrong?

Puzzled,

Hi Guys

I am having a nightmare trying to finish shark island - ive been stuck here forever! I think i might poke myself in the eye with a pencil - seriously it would be less painful!!!

I just cant find the last two blue shells. I tried doing the cheat thing that highlights items to make it easier to find but it wont let me save the image once I have amended it - its says for example:

Acess to c:\program files\totem tribe\data\texture\game\item\gem_blue.png denied

Any ideas guys? please please help!

ty ty ty ty ty!! :)

[Edit: Try downloading the already painted gems found in the Totem Tribe Cheats section above the comments, and then drag-dropping into the appropriate directory and replacing the one that's there. If that doesn't work, you may need to login to your computer as a user with administrator privileges. -Jay]

Since I don't have a regular mouse and just use a touch pad on a laptop I finally had to break down and try the cheat for the 5 purple pyramids on the Crash Site level (19). I followed the instructions but now the LEVEL IS COMPLETELY BLACK and nothing shows. I tried putting it back to default and it is still completely black. I have a Vista system. Please help me if you can. I don't know what to do now.

[Edit: You will have to delete the quest file for that island, quest-xxxx-19.dat as well as restoring the original .xml file for that level. Doing so will delete any saved progress you have for that island. -Jay]

I had the same question/problem as Sammy. I tried copying and saving like you said. Is there a way that you can do the same with things like the whilte shells on the frozen vale or the shells on Shark? I can not save them when I try myself. Thanks :)

Reply

I think I may have answered the problem with coloring and saving the gems and such if you have vista.

Create a new folder on desktop by right clicking and selecting new
Open file/drive C
Open Program Files
Open Totem Tribe
Open Data
Open Texture
Open Game
Open Item
Copy what you want EXAMPLE green shell. Right click to copy. Make sure you COPY not copy shortcut.
Paste one on your desk top
Drag the exsiting one to your folder one in the new folder.
Change the one on your deskto. Click on it and chose edit.
Color as you like
Save as the original
Drag and drop it back into where you copied/draged the oringional from.

This worked for me when I tried it...hope it helps you all.

If you are still looking for that last ice crystal...

Go to the top right NE corner (there is an unused totem holder) move the map/image so the totem holder is under the right side of the vitory/mission box. You will see a small stick tree there is one there.

I only found it when I painted them and then missed it for a while.

According to the game stats, it took me a total of 17 hours and 25 minutes to complete the game. However, it also told me that I only explored 68% of the "world", and only had 397 out of 440 gems.

Which doesn't matter to me right now, because i FINALLY finished a game!

BTW, I keep seeing comments that Volcano Island only has 20 gems on it. On my second game that I have going, I have finished thru Shark Archipelago & gone back to check for other gems, and I have 21 for each and every island up to that point. (Why, yes, I DID Paint all of my gems.)

Beetle Island--the spoiler and FAQ's say to go east and solve the fire puzzle. As soon as you find a place to go east the beetles are there. Then we are supposed to build towers around one of the beetle caves. As if the beetles will let you. And as far as putting the units there, they will drift away to fight the beetles so if the big beetle comes out, they ignore him. I've been at this for more than 2 hours and I simply cannot find a way to kill the big beetle. Any clues?

Reply

Pat - killing the big beetle is done slowly since he is only visible for short periods of time.

You need to build up your strength, all the upgrades you have available first. Then start by putting your attack flag just inside the 'gate', the narrow opening to where the beetles are.

Once they are there, then start to build a couple of towers to help your attackers. You may need to click on the repair icon as the beetles will want to attack the tower.

Keep at it and eventually the big beetle will go down.

When Guru speaks it comes up jumbled on my computer too, However the purified tear should appear at the RHS so that you can drop it on the nasty squid thing. That finally kills it off and triggers end game. However, if it had not appeared for you, then I would suggest it is a glitch in the game - sorry

Reply

Having battled my way through this game three times now, my latest offering was 89% of the world explored and 79% rank. How on earth can you ever explore 100% as there are some islands where it is impossible to go - or is it????? Also, 79% rank seems quite low: any ideas? I wonder how the game calculates your rank?
The blurb says that there are three endings. I have had two different endings, one quite good and two very good. Can only imagine that the third ending is if you somehow lose the game and the baddies dominate the world. Hmmmmm?
Would love to hear from anyone who has explored 100% of the world.

Jayar .. ty I have all my backup files and about 6 different saved games for 20 so I'll go back 1 more time and start from my 1st time battling the squid ... if I doesnt happen then it must be a glitch. I'll post it if anyone else out there has the same problem.

Mandy, there are other hints her on the bulbs. I got stuck too. As for the middle , once u get the shaman upgrade to frost spells use them to kill the fire wall to get to center.

Pat. here is my strategy for killing the big beetle.
I placed my battle flag right by the lower right hole and built towers as fast as possible , lol I had about 8 going, fire, ice, mud and thunder. mostly fire. Yes troops will wander off killing beetles but most come back. Have lots of shamans and healers,you can also build some DECOY towers as beetles will attack them first it seems. Keep main towers repaired and eventually Biggie takes enough tower dmg he dies. It takes awhile. Good luck

How I got past the final level

Someone had recommended lots of temples, so I tried that, but it didn't work for me. Since you can't repair buildings and charge spells at the same time, I wound up repairing my towers all the time and not being able to use any spells. So I demolished all but two of my temples, and used those for Battle Fury & Shield, and replaced the others with lots of Shaman Tents & Hunter Camps.

It took me about 6 or 7 hours to get past the Stone Idol the first (and so far, the only) time, but after replacing my temples with shamen, only an hour & a half before I was able to "kill" the giant octopus with the Tear of Heaven.

BTW, I did have to feed my people to one of the sarlac mouths - the one in the northwest corner - in order to get to the last purple crystal and shatter it. Poor tribesmen! At least it was for a good cause.

for Frost & Thunder towers - for Frost, you must have gotten the map to Lonely Iceberg from the hermit on Frozen Vale Island. And for Thunder, you must have solved the sudoku-type column puzzle on Island of Worship.

For Beetle Island - it took me forever the first time thru, but the second time I played it, I had a lot of Shaman Tents up, and it went very quickly.

For whoever was asking where the fire puzzle is -

Follow the shoreline to the right/east, and you'll find a sandbar you can take your scouts across to another little island. The puzzle is there.

On the Island of Worship, for the gems

click the TOP of the center of the three pyramids several times & it will give you a few gems.
