Totem Tribe

JohnBLet's pretend you have a casual sim game like Virtual Villagers, Westward, or My Tribe. Now, instead of focusing on village management, you shift things in a real-time strategy direction, similar to Breaking the Tower or Warcraft. But let's not fuss over gathering resources, just allow the player to build, unlocking units as he or she plays. Now, to keep things interesting, scatter a handful of objects across each island and encourage the player to search for them, hidden object-style. Did we leave anything out? Oh, yeah, inject some Fun Molecules and wrap the whole thing in an irresistible coat of Addictive Sauce +4. What do we have? Totem Tribe, your latest cross-genre addiction.

totemtribe.jpgTotem Tribe manages to pull together some of the best elements from a number of popular casual games and create something twice as engaging without upping the complexity. Gone are resource managing, complex building/unit requirements, and villagers who act while you're away, but in are over 20 islands to explore, friendly and not-so-friendly characters to encounter, mini-quests to earn spells, and unlockable artifacts that grant your tribe special abilities.

Legends say Tetala Island, home to the peaceful Hawk Tribe, was once marked by a glowing sparkle that came from the sky. A mighty relic called the Tear of Heaven, rumored to grant unimaginable wisdom and enlightenment to its possessor, soon descended. As the young chieftain Aruku, you must lead the Hawk Tribe to prosperity as you explore the lands in search of totems that unlock the secrets of the Tear of Heaven.

totemtribe2.jpgTotem Tribe does a fantastic job walking you through the basic gameplay elements without holding your hand too much. The first level introduces huts, workers, how to build structures, and giving orders to active units such as scouts. Subsequent stages give you a few more units/buildings to manage, all presented at a pace that keeps your attention without overwhelming you with things to do.

The game is divided into scenarios that take place on different islands. Each scenario brings something new into the mix via a series of small missions, each tied directly into the story line. For example, one island is infested with crows, but your fighters can't attack enemies in the air. A little exploration reveals a hermit who knows of a run-down workshop hidden in the forest. If you find the missing pieces of the building and repair it, the hermit promises to teach your tribe archery, a skill perfectly suited for ridding the trees of those pesky birds.

Missions are always different but usually include optional side-quests you can undertake while waiting for your workers to build. Some islands, for example, have hostile tribes that will attack your village, while others are more peaceful and require you to seek and find certain items, build special structures, repair derelict buildings, and so on. Missions are surprisingly varied and keep you entertained as well as challenged for the duration of the game.

totemtribe_shadowking.jpgAnalysis: Another surprise simulation-based genre bender, Totem Tribe hits the sweet spot between game types and delivers something truly special. I was shocked at how addicting it is, as both the story and gameplay work together to draw you in to this marvelous new world.

The game's blurb text promises hidden object gameplay, which seems out of place in a strategy title, but I was pleased at how Enkord handled the situation. Gems are scattered throughout the islands, some are fairly obvious while others blend in with the background. There are also treasure bonuses to be found, several of which are really difficult to locate. Completing certain missions also requires you to find items obscured by the foreground, but I was never stumped for more than a minute or two in these situations.

Although the game is structured in a nice, simple way, I found myself craving a few control shortcuts that would have made the experience a little smoother. For example, moving around the map is accomplished by "pinching" the terrain and sliding the ground in the direction you want to look. When you're trying to build a building, however, you can't pinch without first de-selecting the building, forcing you to go back into the menu screen and choose the building again. Sliding the cursor to the edge of the screen would have been a nice shortcut to scrolling while placing buildings, and even though the [arrow] keys scroll, the incremental movement they provide is not as convenient as just moving the mouse.

Great design from top to bottom, Totem Tribe will draw you in with a familiar premise and keep you playing with its new take on some old ideas.

General Hints and Tips:

1) Towers.

Towers are the most important tools you have. Not only are they useful for defending your village, but they can also be used as a military attack tool. Often enemies will be so busy attacking the tower that they don't attack your troops. They're also useful for establishing settlements in remote areas.

2) Build your buildings

close together to allow you to get more in. And build every type of building you can. Look for paths or access to your village and protect those with towers. Likewise, try to anticipate where attacks might come from and use towers to protect those areas. They may not stop the enemy but they can at least slow them down.

3) After the first few levels,

build with the idea of fighting a battle. As such don't do much exploring until you have your village established.
Not every level requires battle but it's easier to protect your heroes.

4) Some secrets or chests are only accessible

once you've acquired skills at a later level. The two main ones are the area past the ice block on Witch Island which needs at least a fire tower and a couple chests on one of the islands that require swimming ability.

5) Some items are only partially visible,

such as the top or bottom section. Items may be hidden behind rocks, trees or bushes. Sometimes objects are hidden amongst areas with the same color background. Search carefully.

Cradle of the North

Build up some forces and explore the island.

  • Find all the totem shrines

  • Build up a lot of defenses

  • Place the totems on the correct shrines. The guide stones located around the island will give you an idea of where each totem should go. The most difficult for me was the Monkey totem, it is located at the top of the map in the middle, you will need to build a tower near the mountain to see it.

  • Activate the world stone

  • Defend your base!!

  • Mist Island

      Use the spheres of light located around the island to remove the mist

    1. Locate all the obelisks

    Scorched Island

    1. Build up a base

    2. Explore north west

    3. Begin attacking the other pyramids

    4. You may want to get the idols on this map to help you fight

    5. Once you have a large enough force built launch an attack on the pyramid to the east, you may want to have some towers around your base incase some shades slip through and attack your base.

    Beetle Island

    1. If you haven't started building a base yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

    2. Explore to the east and solve the fire puzzle by lighting up all the smaller fires.

    3. Once you've established your base attack the beetles in the north. To finish this fight you will need to destroy the Giant Beetle. I suggest building some towers around one of the holes he comes out of and keeping all your units there so when he happens to go near that hole he takes a lot of damage

    Shark Archipelago

    1. Collect the shells on the island, and solve the first puzzle to the south. to solve this puzzle have all the arrows, (including the corners) pointing outwards.

    2. Move onto the next island

    3. To solve the balls puzzle you need to get them all onto the bottom platform. I'm not really sure of the logic behind this puzzle but clicking randomly for a while seemed to do the trick.

    4. Take note of the way the flowers around the guide stone at the bottom of the second island are arranged, as this is the solution to the next puzzle

    5. Pop the Dirt Piles around the island

    6. Move onto the third island and copy the pattern of the flowers on the lights around the mountain

    7. You will need to locate 2 valves if you haven't already, and place them and the energy ball on the third island, this will get you the scuba gear

    8. Explore the islands.

    9. Light the lighthouses

    10. To reach the center island you need to time your scouts. The sharks swim in two groups around the center, so if you swim in between them and circle around the same direction as they are you can get into the island easily.

    Worship Island

    1. Seriously, just build up a base already. I don't want to have to tell you again.

    2. Explore some.

    3. Avoid activating the temple for now.

    4. Find 11 of each fruit for the idols.

    5. Once you have 11 of each fruit and some good defenses built up near the base of the temple

    6. Activate the temple and prepare to fight

    7. Collect the last of each fruit from the chest to the left

    8. Give the idols the fruit they wanted. You will have to fight monsters on the 3rd idol to activate, and a boss on the 5th

    Ruins of Dream Shore

    1. Okay I lied, I am telling to you build again.

    2. Explore the island with your scouts

    3. Build up your forces a lot

    4. use your scouts to find the best path for your forces using the black portals. One by one defeat the shade princes.

    5. Each prince will drop a Dark Essence. Please these into the lanterns in the middle of your base. this will activate a portal to the King Shade.

    6. Once you are ready move your forces into the portal and fight the king shade.

    Comet Crash Site

    1. Find a way to break the barrier

    2. Use the dark totems to destroy the light totems

    3. For the first light puzzle you will need to turn all of the small lights on. To do this you will need to activate the upper 2, and the lowest light to finish this puzzle.

    4. Find the green crystals to get the idol and move on.

    5. For the second puzzle you need to switch the light and dark lights. If you think of the 7 spaces as number 1 - 7, from left to right the answer is 5,3,2,3,6,7,5,3,1,2,4,6,5,3,4.

    6. To finish the purple crystals puzzle you simply need to click on all of them in a short period of time. If you click on your mini-map you can move the screen to where the crystals are very fast.

    7. The last puzzle simply requires you to ged rid of all your coins using the wells available.

    Lost Temple(optional)

    1. I would begin once again by building a base. Once you do that explore the island and look for the things that shoot out lights.

    2. Once you've found all 5 enter the codes by the water, this will show you were the runes are for the doors.

    3. Each door you put a rune in will spawn a fight from the forest, with each one being more difficult than the last so be prepared!

    Inside the Comet

    I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out a good way to beat this one. The best I can come up with is to have a few temples and use the lightning spell on the boss while keeping my forces in my base to defend from his alien spawns, but this is highly impractical, and would take a long time. If anyone knows a trick or something I am missing here I'd be glad to hear from you! Either post in the comments here or send me a line to Kero (at) Casualgameplay (dot) com, with the subject Totem Tribe. Thanks :)

    • How do I get the Frost Tower?

      • You get the Frost Tower from Lonely Iceberg.

      • Once you're on Lonely Iceberg, you get the Frost Tower by first finding all of the chests, read all the guide stones and then properly mix the ingredients for the potion (by placing them on the laboratory) that you then need to give to the wiseman.

    • How do I get to Lonely Iceberg?

      You unlock access to Lonely Iceberg by giving the fish to the Penguins on Frozen Vale Island.

    • How do I get to Lost Temple Island?

      You need the map to get to "Pirate Island" — which is actually Lost Temple Island. You get the map on Worship Island by solving the "Purple dots" mystery there. For help with that, look under the question: "What are the purple dots on Worship Island for?" in the Worship Island section below.

    • How do I get to Guardian Moon?

      There are at least 2 islands where you may have missed some hidden gems:

      • Worship Island

        Did you find the gems near the pyramids?

        Yes, when you click on one it tells you that you didn't find anything, but if you are persistent you will. So keep clicking! ;)

      • Lost Temple

        1. Go back to Worship Island.

        2. Look where the totems are.

        3. They have small hut type buildings near them with colored smoke coming out of them once you have activated the totem.

        4. Write down the colors of these huts starting with the lower left, up to middle, then to lower right.

        5. Now go back to the Lost Temple.

        6. Put the colors you got from Worship Island into the small brown posts located near the water.

        7. Put the colors in the order you wrote them down.

        6. Frozen Vale Island - Top left corner of the island near the water.

    Seagull Island

    • Where do I find the key to open the chest on Seagull Island?

      The key is in a burnt out fire. Find the fire and click in the ashes a few times. You will find the key.

    Witch Island

    • Where are all the roots on Witch Island?

      If you look around the island, you will see guide stones that reveal the location of a few of the roots. After you check those just look around very carefully. They are there, but they are extremely hard to spot. Look around the outlines of trees and objects that may hold cover for something to be under or behind.

      Here is a screenshot that may help you spot some that you have missed, but it's possible some roots may be in different positions when you play:

    • How do I get into the big chest in the middle of the rock circle on Witch Island? It says "Listen to the rocks to open the chest."

      Click on one of the rocks. If it shimmers, it's the first rock in the series. Continue to click on the remaining rocks until they are all shimmering - do it in the wrong order, and you have to start over. The rocks make no actual noise. It's more "watch the rocks."

    • How do I get past the ice mountain at the top right of the map on Witch Island?

      You will have to return to this island once you have a unit that can help you by throwing fire at the ice. You don't have the ability when you're first at this island.

    Frozen Vale Island

    • Where is the fifth piece of coal on Frozen Vale Island?

      There is one in the crows' nest. Attack the crows with arrows.

    • How do I destroy the ice blocks?

      After you find all the coal and give them to Isoko, you will have access to the laboratory and fire towers. Once you build a laboratory, you can build a tower near an ice block, upgrade to a fire tower, and it will automatically destroy ice blocks in range.

    • Where is the fishing line?

      Before you can find the fishing line, you need to find the Idol of Divination. Use this to reveal areas that are black and you will find the fishing line in the upper left corner.

    • What do I do with the completed fishing rod on Frozen Vale Island?

      Once you have found all 5 pieces of the fishing rod, use the fishing rod on the part of water that has circle ripples on it. You will receive a fish. Give this fish to the penguins.

    Lonely Iceberg

    • How do I get past the "massive ice formations" on the Lonely Iceberg?

      There will be shards of ice laying around that you place onto the ice formations. You need to really keep your eyes open for this one because there is so much ice around it's hard to spot them.

    • How do I create the Twilight Mixture on Lonely Iceberg?

      The twilight mixture is very easy to create if you follow all the formulas written on all guide stones, and you have all the ingredients from all the chests found around the island first. If you haven't been all around the island yet, you should do that first. Be sure to use your warriors and not your heroes, as there are some enemies to deal with.

      1. Once you have all the ingredients, combine the following to get their products by dragging and dropping them over top of the Laboratory:

        • Vitriol + Charcoal = Midnight Salts

        • Aurum + Quicksilver = Amalgam

        • Magnesium + Permanganate = Salamander Dust

        • Ammonium + Alkali = Restoration Liquid

      2. Next, you need to figure out what combines with Salamander Dust to yield Phoenix Oil. Keep combining elements until you get it right. If you don't get it correct, your elements will just reappear over on the right.

      3. Then you need to figure out what combines with Midnight Salts to yield the New Moon Elixir.

      4. And then finally, combine the Phoenix Oil with New Moon Elixir to yield the Twilight Mixture.

      Easy peasy. :)

    • How do I access the small northern island?

      Bring Aruku to the shore as close as she can get to the island (she can see farther than the fighters).

    Cradle of the North

    • Where does the monkey totem go on the "Cradle of the North" level?

      The monkey totem goes at the very top middle of the map. You have to build a tower to be able to view it completely.

    • Where do all the totems go on the "Cradle of the North" level?

      • Dolphin - In the water on the left

      • Whale - In the water on the right

      • Seagull - Upper left near where are the seagulls are flying

      • Monkey - Top center (tower needed to see it clearly)

      • Polar Bear - Near your base in the icy area

      • Lizard - NE from base, surrounded by pebbles

    Mist Island

    • I'm having difficulty moving through the mist. How do I guide Aruku to where I want her to go?

      Movement on this level is challenging. Move the scouting flag "eye" just a little at a time, and make sure you are following the paths that are faintly visible on the mini map. Make sure to bring Aruku to the borders of any area you can access to see as far as possible.

    • Where are all the light bulbs, the Rune of Lightning, and the thunder bolts on Mist Island?

      These are all well hidden. If you look closely at your mini map you will notice small hidden paths not visible on the actual map itself. Use the mini map to guide Aruku down these paths. Watch the mini map to make sure you have placed the "eye" flag directly on the hidden path. Take Aruku as far to the edges as you can to reveal more from the dark areas.

      Here is a screenshot that may help:

    • What do I give the guy in the tower on Mist Island? And where do I find it?

      Search the water. You won't see anything, but if you click around in the water you will find a pearl to give to the tower.

    Volcano Island

    • What do I do with the Scroll of Ice Magic?

      In the south and center part of the island is a hut with a man who asks for the scroll. In return, he will give your shamans a new power.

    Beetle Island

    • How do I defeat the beetles on Beetle Island?

      The best way to defeat the beetles is to place warriors in the center of the beetle caves. You can also build towers there, which should help a lot, too. It makes it harder for the King Beetle to scurry away without getting hit, but it will take several attempts to kill it.

    • How do I solve the 'Circle of Fires' puzzle on Beetle Island?

      Getting them all lit can be difficult to do, but here's an easy trick:

      1. Rather than trying to light them all, try to get only a single torch lit instead.

      2. Then, just click on the burners to the right and to the left of it.

      Now all torches will be lit, and you should receive the Earth rune.

    • How do I plant the seed and water the plant on Beetle Island?

      • There is a small offshore island to the top left. This is where you will plant it.

      • Light all the fires at the same time, and you will get the rune that will unlock the gate to get to the outer land mass. Go to the south end of that land mass to find the bowl.

      • Take the bowl and click it onto the wells. This will fill it with water.

      • Now click the bowl full of water onto the plant.

      • Keep repeating this until you have emptied each well.

      • Once the tree has grown ripened fruit (3 bowls of water are needed) pick 3 apples and give them to the witch.

    Shark Archipelago

    • I'm stuck on the first part of Shark Archipelago. What am I supposed to do?

      • Click the brown symbols towards the south of the island until it forms one symbol (a bunch of circles and diamonds).

      • You need to complete a puzzle on each of the large islands before you can go any further.

      • Completing a puzzle will give you a crystal.

      • First place the crystal in the holder (gold deco thingy)

      • Then place your scout flag near the holder with the white crystal.

      • When your scout walks close to the holder click on it and you will be transported to the next island where there are more puzzles and holders for crystals.

    • How do I use the pink, blue, and yellow crystals to travel to the other islands on Shark Archipelago?

      Once you have all colors in their holders, you'll see when you click on the coloured ones that they turn off and on i.e. pink or dark brown. When they are dark brown they are inactive...whichever colored crystal is lit that is the island you will end up on. Simply make sure the color you want is lit, then put your scout marker next to the WHITE crystal which is the actual transporter crystal.

    • One of the guide stones reads, "The flowers know the truth". What does that mean?

      The color arrangement of the flowers you see on the ground near this guide stone is the same sequence you need to arrange the lights near the scout lodge. You will find the scout lodge on yet another island within the Shark Archipelago.

    • Where do I find the 2 valves?

      Both are extremely hard to see but they are there. The first valve is on the island you start on in a tree top and the second valve is on the third island you get to (the one with the scout lodge) in a tree top next to the yellow flower grouping where you transport in.

    • How do I get to the very bottom island on Shark Archipelago without being eaten by sharks?

      You need to collect shells to give the man in the tower. Then the tower will activate and kill the sharks for you. Wait a bit and the tower will kill all the sharks so that you can go there safely.

    • How do I light all the Lighthouses on Shark Archipelago?

      • One orb is all that is needed to light all the lighthouses.

      • Place the orb in the holder next to the lighthouse that is below the island with the arrow tower.

      • Click on the lighthouse to change the direction of the light emitting from it.

      • Each lighthouse needs to point its light in a specific direction (toward another lighthouse) in order to light the next one.

      • Each lighthouse will need to be clicked to change its light direction to the correct position in order to get all of them lit.

      • Here is a screenshot of the entire island with all the lighthouses in the correct position:

    Worship Island

    • What do I do with the 4 obelisks in front of the pyramids on Worship Island?

      The objective is to click on the symbols (sun, moon, star, and lightning) such that all rows across and every column down does not contain 2 of the same symbols (like Sudoku). Note that on each obelisk there are two symbols that cannot be changed, so use that information to figure out the rest.

    • What are the purple dots on Worship Island for?

      • There are 4 such circle areas on Worship Island.

      • The circles of purple dots will each turn green when you have one of the various "units" within it (scouts, attackers, builders, or heroes).

      • Upper left area: build a hut overlapping the dots area. Builders tend to mill about the huts when they have nothing else to do.

      • Upper right area: build a hut as close as possible to the dots area (a little above it there is a space).

      • Set your attack flag within the center of one of the two lower areas. Your attackers will move to that spot and turn the dots green.

      • Set your scout flag in the center of the other lower area. Your scouts will move to that spot and turn the dots green.

      • When the units are in all of the circle areas and all 4 circles are green AT THE SAME TIME, you will get the chest to appear with the map to Pirate Island (actually called the Lost Temple).

      • Note: for the upper right area, you may have to encourage one of the workers to enter the area (drag him in).

      This is not an easy puzzle since the units move around, but it's not terribly difficult either. Patience is required, above all.

    • How do I get inside the mountain to reach the chests on Worship Island?

      • Use the Idol of Divination to clear the black from the mountains.

      • Look inside the right side of the mountain.

      • You will see a square with a button (this is not hidden, it is in clear view as long as you have cleared the black).

      • Push the button and it will remove the stone from that side.

      • Your scouts can now enter that side of the mountain.

      • Exit your scouts from the moutain and click the button again.

      • This will remove the stone from the other side and you can now take them to the left side of the mountain.

    Lost Temple

    • How do I open the gates on Lost Temple?

      Missing color codes: you need to activate the 'fire' nozzles, they will show you what colors you need to enter into the center stones in order to get each rune. The picture that appears in the lake is the location of the rune for that color combination. They are extremely hard to see but they are there. You need to really look at the location it is showing you and click around where they have marked an X. You do not need to put any of your people there unless you haven't cleared out the fog.

    • I couldn't find any gems on Lost Temple, did I miss something?

      You can get 3 chests of gems from Lost Temple by solving the mystery of the small brown posts located near the water.

      1. Go back to Worship Island.

      2. Look where the totems are.

      3. They have small hut type buildings near them with colored smoke coming out of them once you have activated the totem.

      4. Write down the colors of these huts starting with the lower left, up to middle, then to lower right.

      5. Now go back to the Lost Temple.

      6. Put the colors you got from Worship Island into the small brown posts located near the water.

      7. Put the colors in the order you wrote them down.

      8. You will receive 3 chests full of gems for this.

      • What order do they go in?

        Red, blue, yellow, pink, green

    Ruins of Dreams Shore

    • How do I reach the chest on the Ruins of Dreams Shore?

      Click on all the slated rocks on each small island. They will vibrate. When you have them all clicked, an island drops down so that you can get to the chest.

    • My attack team can't get anywhere using the portals. What do I need to do?

      Your scouts should have the aqua lung ability at this point, so they can explore most of the map by swimming. Send them to different distant points on the minimap before you try to send troops — they will discover the paths through the portals.

    • How do I get to the King Shade's area?

      Each of the four Shade Princes drop a glob of dark essence after he is killed. Pick these up and place them in the four empty lights in your village. This will open a portal to the King Shade's island.

    Comet Crash Site

    • What do I do at the purple crystal with small purple pyramids on Comet Island?

      There are other small purple pyramids on the island. You have to light them all so that they all have the purple smoke coming out at the same time. They turn off quickly so you have to be fast. Use the mini map to help you scroll between each one.

    • I'm on Comet Crash Site. I'm at the large purple crystal and I now have a coin. What do I do with the coins?

      1. There are wells around the purple crystal.

      2. You need to get rid of all your coins so that you have none left.

      3. You have silver and bronze coins.

      4. Turn all the silver coins into bronze coins, then use the last well that takes your bronze coin without giving any back in return.

      5. Feed the coins to the well until you are left with none.

    • How do I solve the "black and white balls" puzzle on Comet Crash Site?

      • The objective of this puzzle is to move all the black balls over to the right side, and all the white balls over to the left.

      • Since each ball can only move or jump forward, here is the order to move them in:

    • Where do I find the entrance to the Comet crash site?

      • You have to go to the very top of the map where the large purple crystal formations are.

      • At about it's mid point there is a cove openeing.

      • Your scout can only partially walk in but once they go in a certain distance the ending will activate.

    Guardian Moon

    • How do I solve the puzzle with all the lights on Guardian Moon?

      This puzzle is rather difficult, but there is a quick and easy tip that will help you when solving it:

      • Note how each light affects not only itself, but every other light in the same row and column.

      • You can change any one light by clicking on every orb in that row and column once (total of 7 clicks). All the other orbs will end in their original on/off configuration, and the one orb that was common to both the row and the column will be changed.

    Inside the Comet

    • How do I beat the final level?

      1. Build 3 huts close to where the two leaders are walking around (i.e., so they preferably have to walk around the huts instead of milling around the middle of the crater) and surround them with towers (4 or 5 should be enough).

      2. Then build a scout hut behind the towers and get the scouts exploring the perimeter of the central area so all the fog of war is removed. If any square guys show up, the priority is for repairing HUTS and TOWERS at this point. Although for the first few times, you may have to drag the two leaders away from the center of the screen until the towers finish the enemies off.

      3. Then it's basically a case of putting everything you need to max out EVERYTHING - i.e., armor, arrows, speed, production and melee weapons. etc. Preferably ARROWS first as you'll need to upgrade ALL the towers to arrow towers ASAP. Every time you put a key building down, leave enough space around it to have at least 2, preferably even 4/5 arrow towers covering it, but you're going to need about half of the cavern empty later. Leave exploring the caves in the northeast for now.

      4. Once you've maxed out the arrows and upgraded all towers, any square guys will be getting killed after about 2-3 bursts of arrow fire, and as long as they're not repeatedly destroying the original huts and towers around them (if so, you need to increase defensive towers around those 3 huts), you can relax and move attention to creating about 5 warrior camps, 4/5 witch doctor huts, 4/5 shaman tents, preferably SIX temples, and as many caveman trainers as you can fit into the remaining space.

      5. Plant the battle icon in the cave mouth to the northeast, just inside and to the right of it, more on this later. Ignore the builders being killed - any more than 5 huts just take up valuable space, and besides, by now, they should be regenerating quick enough not to be a problem. After every 2/3 attacks from the square guys (or as soon as ANY building gets destroyed) get the builders repairing any smoking buildings and building ones that were destroyed.

      6. Charge the temples up with 3 rage, 2 shield, and 1 restore health. Once they're fully charged and you have the spell icons at the bottom of the screen, send a scout up the cave passage (left, then up at the next intersection) to view the boss. Hopefully by now they won't be spotted by the enemy so just leave them there. But if they are, sticking the scout icon back in the main area would help.

      7. Now set the battle icon to the right of the little alcove which is left of the boss room (yes, there's a passage behind that purple crystal, but ignore that for now) and wait for all the troops to arrive there. If you had chosen this area originally, you'd have some stragglers stuck in the main area, unable to get into the cave, which reduces your numbers. Double check that nothing is smoking in the main area, repair if needed, then set the battle icon on the boss. Once the 5 or 6 square guys have been eliminated and the cavemen are right up against the boss, cast HEALTH, SHIELD, then RAGE on them all and go charge up shield/health again while they're battling. Once RAGE has been used up, repeat the spells in that order and you'll hopefully take about a fifth, maybe even a quarter of the boss's health off before everyone gets killed.

      8. Unfortunately, once all your troops are wiped out, it's a case of returning to step 5 and working though again and again till the boss is dead (ish...)

      9. MAJOR spoiler for last level once above steps are complete:

        The sarlac pit-looking things will devour your soldiers/scouts/builders for a limited time, until they start producing plumes of purple smoke. Once this happens, you can move to the next one and (I assume) not have to worry about spending 2 hours repeating steps 5-8 again.

    • How do I defeat the Octo/squid alien?

      • You will want to build a lot of towers so that they can battle off the smaller enemies while your troops are fighting in the 'boss' cavern.

      • Once the 'boss' statue is defeated and the 'boss' alien appears, walk-throughs are opened up in the crystal structure.

      • Send your scout walking around to find all the hidden chambers and pockets holding crystals that look like the ones protecting the alien.

      • Click each one to destroy them and once you have found and destroyed them all the ones around the alien get demolished too.

      • Your troops will now have much more success getting damage through to the 'boss' alien.

      • If you get %100 of the gems and then complete the tasks on the moon you will be given two additional items that will help you with the final level.

      • Guru will let you know when to use one of them and the other will already be in effect.

    A special thanks to Shawty613 for helping put these together, and to Sas and flygirlfly for contributing to them, too!

    Totem Tribe Cheats

    We don't recommend using cheats for any game because not only can they ruin the experience as intended by the game designer and developers, they can sometimes even ruin the game file itself making it impossible to play without reinstalling. So, while there have been a few handy cheats for Totem Tribe offered up in the comments for those hopelessly stuck in a spot in the game, we offer them up to you here with the caveat: PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. Of course, always, always, always back-up your Totem Tribe directories before you attempt any cheats. If you don't know how to do that, then you probably shouldn't be attempting anything here.

    • Fog of War (FOW) Cheat:

      This cheat is handy to remove all the black fog from all the islands.

      1. First exit the game if it's open and running.

      2. Next, locate your Totem Tribe game directory and back it up for safe keeping in case you do something wrong.

      3. Locate the following file: Totem Tribe\data\cfg\gamevisual.cfg.xml

      4. Right-click the file and choose "Edit" on the menu.

      5. Scroll down to the middle of the page where you'll see a line that looks like this: <fow_dense_color>FF000000</fow_dense_color>

      6. Change FF000000 to 00FFFFFF

      7. Save and close the file.

      The next time you launch the game, all the black fog will be gone on every one of your islands, but the black will remain on the minimap until you remove it using normal means.

    • Gem "painting" Cheat:

      Many people have experienced difficulty finding all the gems that are hidden among the many islands of Totem Tribe. Since many times the gems are positioned to "blend in" with the background, here is a procedure whereby you can "paint" the gem images the game uses so they are easier to see.

      1. First, exit out of the game completely.

      2. Next, locate the directory in which the gem images are stored:
        C:\Program Files\Totem Tribe\data\texture\game\item

      3. Make a backup of this directory for safe keeping.

      4. The gems (there are 7 of them) are all stored in files named like this one: gem_green.png

      5. Right-click on each and select "Open With" and choose Paint (the program included with Windows).

      6. Paint will come up with the picture you chose.

      7. The easiest thing to do is to choose the spray paint option and the larger 'speckle' and choose a color like burgundy or purple or something that more than likely isn't in the level.

      8. When done, choose 'save' (don't choose 'save as').

      9. Launch the game, and your gems should be much easier to see now!

      For those who may be having trouble "painting" their gems, I've modified the gems into easy-to-see versions that may help you.

      Just right-click on the links below and save to your computer. Then replace the files with the same names in your items directory as specified above.


      Original (modified): (in case you need a backup)

    • Here's how to find what island(s) still hold gems to find:

      This spoiler requires you to open up your game's saved "quest" files in a text editor (such as Notepad) that can open large files (about 5MB in size).

      • I have discovered how you can tell if there are still any gems left on an island.

      • The game keeps track of what you do on each island and stores that information in a binary data file, called a "quest" file. Each gem that you haven't yet found is stored like one of the following, depending on its color: RedGem, OrangeGem, YellowGem, GreenGem, BlueGem, VioletGem, WhiteGem. If you have found all the gems, there won't be any occurrence of any of those strings in the data file. However, at least one island can still hide gems without showing these strings (Worship Island in the pyramid), and there may be others, too. We'll update here if we learn of any. In the meantime, you can be relatively sure this technique will help you find those last few gems you're having trouble locating.

      So here's what to do:

      1. Open up each "quest" file (i.e., quest-xxxxx-nn.dat)

      2. Search for "Gem"

      3. Note how many you find, and what color they are.

      That's how many gems are remaining to be found on the island associated with that quest file.

      • Each of the "quest" files is numbered corresponding to the island it represents. For example, they will have filenames similar to: quest-xxxxx-nn.dat where "nn" represents the island number (see below).

      • You will find them stored in the Enkord directory, the location of which may be different depending on where you downloaded and installed your game from, and whether you're running Vista or XP.

      • For me, the directory was found here:
        C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Enkord\Totem Tribe
        and the quests were numbered as such:

        • quest-xxxxx-1 ... Tetala Island

        • quest-xxxxx-2 ... Mushroom Island

        • quest-xxxxx-3 ... Dolphin Island

        • quest-xxxxx-4 ... Monkey Island

        • quest-xxxxx-5 ... Seagull Island

        • quest-xxxxx-6 ... Red Rock Island

        • quest-xxxxx-7 ... Witch Island

        • quest-xxxxx-8 ... Skull Island

        • quest-xxxxx-9 ... Frozen Vale Island

        • quest-xxxxx-10 ... Island of Yeti

        • quest-xxxxx-11 ... Cradle of the North

        • quest-xxxxx-12 ... Mist Island

        • quest-xxxxx-13 ... Scorched Island

        • quest-xxxxx-14 ... Volcano Island

        • quest-xxxxx-15 ... Beetle Island

        • quest-xxxxx-16 ... Shark Archipelago

        • quest-xxxxx-17 ... Island of Worship

        • quest-xxxxx-18 ... Ruins of Dream Shore

        • quest-xxxxx-19 ... Comet Crash Site

        • quest-xxxxx-25 ... Lonely Iceberg

        • quest-xxxxx-26 ... Lost Temple

      And I hope that helps you track down those last few elusive gems. :o)

    • Cheat for the Comet Crash Site, 5 purple pyramids puzzle:
      (WinXP, your mileage may vary)

      1. Go to C:\Program Files\Totem Tribe\data\level\original (or wherever you have TT installed)

      2. COPY and SAVE "level19.xml" somewhere safe!

      3. Double-check that you have copied and saved level19.xml somewhere safe.

      4. Open level19.xml with notepad or any other editor that can handle xml files.

      5. Find the text that says: structure hint="cr_#" There will be 5 of these, and they take a little searching because they're mixed into a very long list of structure commands.

        Here's the one for cr_2:
        structure hint="cr_2" type="Crystal" x="457" y="1416"

        What we're going to do is change the x and y values for cr_3, cr_4, and cr_5 (1 and 2 are the crystals near the comet and will be left alone.)

      6. Orignally these values read:
        cr_3: x="2272" y="1253"
        cr_4: x="1780" y="1675"
        cr_5: x="2369" y="2236"

        Change them as follows:
        cr_3: x="672" y="1553"
        cr_4: x="680" y="1375"
        cr_5: x="669" y="1136"

      7. Find the spot that reads: area name="cr_#".

        Here's a sample:
        area name="cr_3" radius="32" x="672" y="1553"

        These are a little easier because they're right next to each other. Change the x and y values to match the ones you used in the last set.

      8. Save the file.

      9. Open Totem Tribe. You probably have to restart the level. (I'm sorry.)

      10. The 5 crystals should now form a rough sort of V around the comet/totem crystal, and all fit on the screen at the same time. It should now be possible to click them all in the allotted time.

    This walkthrough will help you complete each level.

    General Tips Before You Start

    1. Always look on the ground before building. You may end up building over an item that you need to find later.

    2. Make sure to collect all gems found on the ground and inside chests. Gems are needed to complete the rainbow road to get to a hidden level. (You need to make sure you have the newest version of the game 1.02. In older versions there was a bug and you were unable to reach the 100% needed for rainbow road).

    3. Use your scouts to uncover the black areas. Take scouts as far to the edges of the island as you can.

    4. Make sure to always read guide stones on each level as they sometimes give hints as to a location of an item, or how to solve a puzzle.

    5. Always have a good number of huts. The more builders you have, the faster they build.

    Tetala Island

    1. Build 3 huts.

    2. Build scout lodge.

    3. Find the Tear of Heaven by using the eye flag send your scouts north on the map. The Tear of Heaven will be a purple crystal in a black hole near the top of the island.

    4. Finish level.

    Mushroom Island

    1. New building available - Barracks (build barracks to train fighters - they fight using swords).

    2. Build a hut and a scout lodge.

    3. Build the barracks (2 should be enough).

    4. Defend your settlement/fight the mushrooms.

    5. Go further south on the map to fight more mushrooms and destroy the mushroom lair.

    6. Guro will now join you.

    7. Finish level.

    8. Instead of clicking next, click continue. Take your scouts and search the island to collect gems.

    9. You will find 21 gems

    Dolphin Island

    1. New building available - Tower (use towers to see land that you cannot reach with scouts).

    2. Build scout lodge and send scouts to explore the island.

    3. Collect gems and (brown) shells as you explore.

    4. You will come across a chest which requires 8 shells to open.

    5. Build a tower near each guide stone on the island (by doing this you will find items on offshore islands... shells and totem).

    6. If you find the Totem of Dolphin before opening the chest, you will need to click continue instead of clicking next.

    7. When you have collected all 8 shells, go back to the chest. Click on your 8 shells (in your inventory, right corner in the square showing a picture of the shell with the number 8) and then click on the chest.

    8. You will receive Diadem of Courage from the chest.

    9. You will find 18 gems.

    Monkey Island

    1. New building available - Hunter Camp (build hunter camp to train hunters [you can only build a hunter camp after building a scout lodge] - they fight using spears and by placing traps).

    2. Protect your village.

    3. Build a hut, scout lodge, barracks and hunter camp. You need to build quick as enemies come fast.

    4. You will find a chest which requires 9 chestnuts to open. These can easily blend in with grass because they are green. (Chestnuts are found by defeating the Thorn Flowers[green cactus looking plants which attack you]).

    5. After defeating all the mushrooms that come, your new task is to find the Monkey Tribe Village.

    6. As you explore the island, you will come across more enemies, so bring your fighters with you.

    7. While exploring, you might see, on the right side, what looks to be mountains in the dark areas. You cannot reach this yet, but will come back to this level later after finding certain items.

    8. After you find the Monkey Tribe Village (bottom right corner of island), you will have a new wave of enemies to defeat near the mountains to the bottom left of island.

    9. After defeating the wave of enemies and the "shade" is gone, you will receive the Totem of Monkey.

    10. Finish level.

    11. Click continue to collect the rest of the chestnuts and open the chest if not done already. Remember to look for gems too.

    12. You may find a large blue orb looking item sitting on a square platform. When you click on it, it says "Nothing happens". An item found in a later level is needed for this. Return to this island after finding it later.

    13. You will receive the Pendant of Nature Force from the chest.

    14. You will find 16 gems. 1 of these is hidden off to the right hand side near the bottom on an offshore island. Use your scouts to go as close to the edge as possible to find it.

    Seagull Island

    1. Build hut, scout lodge, barracks and hunter lodge.

    2. Explore the island.

    3. At the top left part of the island, you fill find a hut. The man living in the hut tells you that the crows scared away the seagulls and stole his magic pebbles. He asks you to hunt down the crows and return his pebbles to him. He will teach you the craft of archery to hunt down the birds.

    4. You will need a workshop to create arrows and bows. He tells you about an abandoned workshop and gives you a machinery part that you will need to fix it.

    5. New building available - Archery Range (build archery range to train archers [you can only build an archery range after building a barracks and workshop] - archers use arrows to fight flying enemies).

    6. Keep exploring the rest of the island. You will find the abandoned workshop to the top right of the island. You need to find 5 parts to fix it. (The parts look like gears).

    7. You will find a chest. The chest is locked. You need a key. One of the guide stones tell you "Under the faded out flames, the seeker finds the key to the lock."

    A special thank you to Shawty and Boopbug for writing the walkthrough!

    Version 1.02 is NOW AVAILABLE (and has been since Tuesday 1/20) at Casual Gameplay (you may use the download links above).

    This version fixes the "MISSING GEM" bug on Volcano Island.

    If you already purchased an older version from us, just re-download it and re-install, your saved game should be preserved. Be sure to backup your Totem Tribe directories before re-installing.

    Note to Mac users playing using CrossOver Games: You should also make a backup copy of your TotemTribe "bottle" before reinstalling, as I had some trouble getting my saved game data copied over to the new version.

    Saved game data: The new version (v1.02) changes the place where the saved game data is stored. Older version stored user data in a "data" directory within the game folder. The newer version stores user data in:

    • XP
      C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Enkord\Totem Tribe

    • Vista
      C:\ProgramData\Enkord\Totem Tribe

    Note: Some people with Vista have complained they cannot find the game's save data files. It may be because your OS is set to "hide" invisible files and directories, such as the Enkord directory.

    To copy your saved game data from the old "data" directory to the new, copy all files named "quest-xxxxx-nn.dat" and "profiles.dat" to the new directory as specified above (depending on your OS).

    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.

    Great review, John. And I have to say I love this game!

    Don't expect another Virtual Villagers clone, even though it may look like one.

    It's a fun, casual, real-time strategy game, with exceptional production values, that has grabbed ahold of me and won't let go. Already about 8 hours in, and I still have more islands to uncover, and some side quests left on islands that I can still go back and do.

    For those who complained that in VV games there's nothing to do while you wait for your villagers to complete their tasks, Totem Tribe isn't like that at all! You're playing every minute, and the game does not keep going when it's turned off.

    Also, don't expect a run-of-the-mill hidden object experience either. It's refreshing and different, and I highly recommend this game!

    If anyone needs any help, just ask! :)

    PS: To Mac users, the game runs just fine in CrossOver Games.


    Great game, I like the gameplay and the option to do side-quests. Although, I'm currently stuck at the islands with the crows, and I cannot find the 5th gear. Could anyone help me? I want to play the rest of the game!


    Jenn - look amongst the heavy foliage, I think there was a gear in there that had me stumped for a while.

    The gears didn't stump me for as long as the roots did (I think that's the next quest you'll come to).

    I'll try to go through the game again and take screenshots of all the item quests.


    I am at the frozen Island where you have to use the towers with fire power to melt the ice and release the penguins. I can not figure out what to do with the fishing rod, line, hook, and bait. I have beat the level and I could move on but I would really like to figure this out!

    Any help? :)




    I'm stuck on the beetle island..can't get any further. I'm searching for some helps or walthrough on Internet, but I found nothing.


    3 Problem/Question areas I'm facing:

    1. Mist Island - I see the lightning gate at the top of the Island, but I cannot find the key to open it.

    2. Comet Crash Site - Two purple crystal challenges I cannot pass. A. The challenge with the white and black spheres that can be moved be switching places with the gold sphere. I have not been able to open this crystal to destroy the token. B. The purple crystal challenge that is surrounded only by two crystal shards that can emit a purple light.

    3. What happens if you are unable to provide the 7 collected ancient coins in the original few islands? I am stuck at 5! I would love to get a hint as to where the last two are.

    Any help on these would be excellent


    @ Marge you will need to use them to fish in ripples of water. Once you obtain the fish you will give it to the head of the penguin tribe.



    I found the best way to defeat the beetles was to place my warriors in the center of the beetle caves. It makes it harder for the king beetle to scurry away without getting hit.
    You also should work with the small flames surrounding the large fire on the palm island. Once all flames are active (by clicking individual flame stations you can activate/deactivate others) you will be given a tool you will need when working with the Witch on the island. I would recommend defeating the beetles before focusing on the other two objectives on the island.


    Indeed. This game is very addictive. I'm stuck at the 5 coins too. Hopefully someone will make a thorough walkthrough for this. :)


    We're working on it. Check back for updates. :)


    I went back to previous islands to unlock other things that I am needing later and now I am at the Lonely Iceberg. I can't seem to get the other ingredients. I am left with 2 powders and 2 potions right now, I can't uncover all the black area of the land. What am I missing? I have Salamander dust and magic salts or something. Then 2 potions, I have been at this same one over an hour!


    Ok I can't find the 5th piece for the machine either, Jay you said something about the trees, I think I found that one but what about the other ones?


    I wish I could tell you, Lisa.

    We believe that the locations for some of the objects may be random, or at least there are several different spots where they could be each time you play.


    i am stuck on witch island and cant find the tenth root is it possible to help please


    Lisa: I found a gear by one of the crows nests, only half showing. Most of the other ones were hidden behind trees, I think there were 2 of them in the thick forest by the workshop you need to repair.

    Jakob: the witches roots had me stumped for a while too. If you look around the island you will see guide stones that reveal the location of a few of the roots. After you check those just look around very carefully, they are there but they are extremely hard to spot.

    I hope that helps :)

    Hiya, it's my first time here haha.. I find the game Totem Tribe to be quite entertaining, however I am stuck on the witches island trying to find the last frustrating root for the witch!!

    I can't find this root by any means.. I looked ALL OVER and still couldn't see it, please help me out with this!!!! I am starting to get a complex from this last blasted root, lol.


    help! im stuck at the penguins level too!, i need 2 more shells for the idol and i have a rod, bait,hook and float for the hermit but i cant catch the fish, ive walking around in circles since yesterday, any suggestions? i'd really appreciate it, thankx


    The roots are hard to find, some of them anyways.

    The last few for me had only slivers showing. Look around the outlines of trees and objects that may hold cover for something to be under or behind.

    Look for just a small part of the root there. Be patient, and you will find it. :)


    AngelKatt: Like i said above the guide stones will tell you where a few are. Other than that I'd just have to say sweep over the whole island little by little. I found 2 roots not located in the swampy area so don't limit your search to that.


    joanne - Is the fishing rod together, or still just parts? If just parts, you have one more to go.

    One of the stones tells you that fish bite where there are ripples on the water. When you see them, click once on your assembled fishing pole, then once on the ripples. You'll catch the fish automatically.

    Except, now what to do with the fish?

    This is where my last shell was, maybe it will help you?


    Oh, AngelKatt, I found one root by clicking on one of those green lily pad looking things. I hope that helps!


    hi jay, yes the rod is stll in bits unfortunately lol, i think i may need a line? but cant find one, im still missing the other two shells, they seem to be hidden well

    frustrating - yet addicting, i love it!


    i cant find all the bolts plz help someone, still good game


    joanne - remember you can build a tower on the shore near an area of water that you can't see. Often they put objects on islands out in the water, and the only way you can find them is if you clear the black fog.

    milly - the gears change position from game to game, so it's really not easy to just tell you where they are. Keep looking, you'll find them.


    Hi, I hope that any one can help me.
    I am totally stuck.
    I am on the island with the iceblocks.
    And I can't find the fifth piece of coal.
    I have looked everywhere...



    theres one in the crows nest, attack the crows with arrows

    hope thats the one youre looking for


    Thank you so much Joanne!!
    I tried it and i found the last coal stone.


    So, I'm stuck on the first part of Shark Island. What am I supposed to do?


    Jim, try this

    Click the brown symbols towards the south of the island until it forms one symbol (a bunch of circles and diamonds)

    I'm stuck on the Shark islands too... on the fourth island having trouble finding valves...


    I've gotten pretty far in the game (currently battling beetles), but I stopped and went back for more coins. Currently, I'm on Witch Island and I don't understand how to get into the big chest in the middle of the rock circle. It says "Listen to the rocks to open the chest."

    What am I missing?


    Toby Hodge January 17, 2009 11:28 AM

    I am going cross eyed looking for the last root-read all the comments and STILL can't find it. Do you have to melt the ice? Is it in the treasure chests?


    Eve, try this

    Click the stones in the right order, you know you have it right when they turn green. Trial and error works well, but I believe the first one was the NE corner stone

    I've gotten past the Shark Island, but I have found a new dilemma. Anyone know what to give the guy in the tower on mist island, or where to get it?


    I'm on the mist island and I've found and fixed two of lights. I've found the third broken light but can't find the bulb that goes into it. I've wandered all over the island but with all the mist it's hard to find anything. I need help!!



    Rock circle on Witch's Island:

    Click on one of the rocks. If it shimmers, it's the first rock in the series. Continue to click on the remaining rocks until they are all shimmering - do it in the wrong order, and you have to start over.


    Looking for the fifth coin in the series (counting from the left) ... does anyone know what island it was on? Could anyone with four coins tell me where they found the fourth one? That'll at least get me in the right direction ...



    Reply! I'm stuck on this island with totems and I really don't where is a place for :)



    the Gears on Seagull Island:

    1) The hermit gives it to you when he gives you the quest.
    2) There's one sitting to the right of the workshop, in the open.
    3) There's one hiding behind a rock at the top center of the island.
    4) There's one hidden under a tree, right next to a crow's nest. It's halfway between your base and the workshop.
    5) The crow's nest to the east of your base, it's hidden under the branches.


    I am on the last level of the game, the Comet Island. There is a big purple totem surrounded by purple spheres. How can I solve this riddle?
    I am stuck, please help.


    Forget it, I found it:

    5th Coin, on Skull Island:

    It's on a small island, bottom center. Use a tower to see it.


    I'm totally stuck on the cloud/mist island. I've fixed two of the lights, and found the third broken one but can't find the bulb. There's a clue about finding something you can't see, but there's still a lot of clouds and black area. I've searched everywhere, help!!


    On shark island, I have 8 turtle shields, 1 valve and the travel stone is in its place and i can`t find the next thing to do...????


    Sionainn - here's a tip for Mist Island:

    Move Aruku everywhere you possibly can, especially to all the edges of the path. The goal in this level is to remove as much of the black fog as you can. Look for parts of the ground that look like it might be a path, and try to follow it if you can. There are a couple hidden passages that allow you to clear areas of black that will reveal a light. Good luck! :)


    Hi, I really love this game.
    But I am stuck now. I am on sharkisland and defeated the sharks so I build a shaman tent.
    I can''t pass the ice obstakels, so I can't come near the world seal, by clicking it says: world seal is silent.
    And I don't know what to do with the round objects with symbols on it. By clicking on it, nothing happens.
    Please help me!!


    seriously need help on sharks island. got the travel stick in place, a few shells & a valve. wots next ? how to i defeat the sharks or move to the next island? and does anyone know where the 7th coin is ? Tks.


    I've got all but 2 coins and can't figure out where they are, can anyone help? Counting them left to right (in a w pattern) I am missing the 2nd and 6th.


    Hi, I finally found the last root on Witch Island, the sick are cured and the shade banished (presumably to the next island, lol).

    But I can't figure out how to get past the ice mountain at the top right of the maps (I am guessing you get to the chest through there).

    Can anyone help me?


    About the ice on Witch Island:

    You will have to return to this island once you have a unit that can help you by throwing fire at the ice. You don't have the ability when you're first at this island.


    i still can't find the last two shells and i can't find the fishing line.


    HEADS UP: This comment contains spoilers:

    It seems there's a lot of people stuck on this game. I haven't finished it yet, but have made it a tiny bit farther than some.

    First I want to tell "Tia" about the fishing pole she asked about.

    If you search the shore (on the right side of the island if I remember correctly) you will find three ripples in the water. If you use the pole on the ripples, it will give you a fish. Give the fish to the penguin hut.

    Second I want to address the difficulty on shark island.

    For this island, you have to make it to four different islands using three different colored travel shards (Blue, Yellow, and Pink). The valves (2 in all) are for the blue island. You also will need to get the energy ball for the center platform. Once you achieve this, you can reach the chest on the same island. In the end, you will end up swimming unreachable islands. I don't want to give too much away, but hopefully that gives you a good start.

    Good luck people, and if anyone makes it to Dream Shore and defeats King Shade yet again, I could certainly use some pointers. Thanks.


    Im still stuck i am missing two sea shells and the fishing line.

    please help i've tried everything above with no luck.

    [Edit: We're working on some help for the fishing items, particularly the fishing liine. However, there are 60 shells to find on Frozen Vale Island, and impossible to know which ones you're missing. Keep looking, you'll find them! :) Pay special attention to the outlines of mountains. Many shells have only a very small area showing. -Jay]


    I'm on shark island. I have the 8 turtle shells, a valve and the pink crystal.

    How do I use the pink crystal to travel to the other islands? Help please.


    on which island is the second medal piece?

    its the first one on the lower row in my treasury

    master_disasater January 17, 2009 3:42 PM

    When you have a shaman tent, you build shamans (recruiting automaticilly), they have a fire spell- now you can attack ice wallls.


    Anyone else having difficulty finding 1 last blue shell on Shark Island? I swear I've clicked on every inch of land on that level, but can't find it.


    Im stuck at Mist Island. Ive found 5 pedestals for those light things, but only 4 of the light things themselves, ive also found the thunder symbol. I searched in every corner and look-a-like paths but the last light thing isnt anywere!
    Can anybody tell me were to find the last one?

    (the one in the middle; ive already have that one..)


    So on the witch island I can't get past the ice how do I melt it? Am I reading the posts correct that the last of the roots aren't on that side? I can't clear the fog out and couldn't find 3 roots so I figured they were on that side. From what I'm reading it seems like I need to come back to the island to get to the other side of the ice block?


    I somehow missed a pebble when fighting the crows on Gull Island. I can't see it anywhere. Can anyone help?


    Carolyn I missed one too, I believe I found it near the nest on the far bottom of the island. If not just look around all the nests even in them


    where are the valves on shark archipelgo?


    Thanks Lisa! It blended in with a rock.


    I need one more piece of bone. spend 15 minutes on clicking everywhere... my finger hurts :(


    Sphere of Clarity:

    Where it can be found?

    Witch Island

    The hint is "Listen to the rocks to open this chest".

    You need to click the rocks in the correct order. When you click one correctly, it will vibrate and appear lighter than the rest. When you click one in the wrong order, they will all return back to normal and you need to start again. Note the order they go in as you figure them out, and you'll have this solved in no time. :)

    PuppyPak9 January 17, 2009 5:48 PM

    Hey Ilse,
    Where did you find that Thunder symbol?? I've found all 5 lights, but not the symbol! I'll be forever greatful!


    i ma stuck, where i have to gefeat wolf tribe, its the level, where u attack by fire bolts from sky, i have destroyed first town and have the ice crystal, but dont find a way to main town?


    Rune of Lightning location

    The Rune of Lightning is found in the lower left quadrant of the map, about halfway between the western edge and the center, going in a WSW direction from the center. To reveal it, you will need to go down a hidden path, the entrance to which is found about halfway between the two western light fixtures.

    Now, can anyone please answer any of these for Mist Island:
    1) Where is the 5th light bulb (for the northwestern lamp)?
    2) How to I get the present for the tower-keeper?
    3) What do I do with the Rune of Lightning?



    Hey Ilse, how did you find the third light on mist island. I've found the first one, then the one to the right, I can't find the bulb to the broken light south from the second one. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    PuppyPak9 January 17, 2009 6:21 PM

    Hello All!
    I'm looking for the Thunder Symbol on Mist Island......Has anyone else found it and where might that be??

    Forever greatful!

    Anonymous January 17, 2009 6:29 PM

    Got as far as worship island, but cannot find the last three fruits anywhere, and can't get to the chests at the bottom of the map or figure out what to do with the circles of glowing red lights that go green when there are people in them... any help anyone?

    StealthBunny January 17, 2009 6:38 PM

    Gah! I'm having eye strain looking for this stuff... but am I hooked! I definately have to go back and finish tying up some of the loose ends on some of the islands, though.

    However, can someone please tell me what the darned fish line looks like? I'm going crazy here! Is it like a ball of string, or a reel, or just a pile of string? I thought I had it once! Then realized it was cat hair on my monitor.

    I did find the 30 shells thou!

    Oh, my achin' eyeballs! They're all woogy...


    For Ola, the monkey totem's platform is at the very top. You need to build a tower to expose it fully. Now I'm stuck trying to defeat the shadows here, any suggestions?


    Stealthbunny, the string is on an island at the very top left hand corner, you have to use the magic ball thing to reveal it.

    PuppyPak9 January 17, 2009 6:46 PM

    Hey Tiger,

    1. Present for Tower:

    Black Pearl in water in lower right quadrant. Just click the water near the shore.Just pic up the pearl from your inventory and click the tower.


    Fishing Line:

    Where it can be found?

    Frozen Vale Island

    How can I find it?

    Before you can find the fishing line, you need to find the Idol of Divination:

    Use the Idol of Divination to clear away all the fog. There is a spot way out in the water that you cannot get to, nor will towers reach it, where the fishing line is:

    PuppyPak9 January 17, 2009 6:57 PM

    Got it, Tiger! Thank you very much!


    Someone please help me on mist island!!!!

    [Edit: Most of the bulbs are near the lights that need them. You need to work at removing all the black fog that you can. Get as close to the edges as you can move. -Jay]

    Shawty613 January 17, 2009 7:12 PM

    Has anyone gotten to the last level yet? With the crystals. I'm stuck on the last two totems. The one with the 3 black and 3 white lights and the one with the wells for the coins. Any ideas?
    Also on a previous level, I think it was worship island or something , there is a spot with like 4 totems with images on them of like lightning blots, sun, star and something else. I can't figure those out either.
    Please help

    Shawty613 January 17, 2009 7:17 PM

    Sorry for double post, didn't see the first one got through

    Shawty613 January 17, 2009 7:25 PM


    For the chest's at the bottom, there is a square button on the right side click it and the stone will dissapear, your guys can now go into that side. Then move ur guys back into the water, hit the button again and the stone will dissapear from the left side.


    I'm stuck on the island with the totem pedestals. I can't seem to kill the spirits. what's the trick? Please Help!

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 7:53 PM


    Which Island are you referring to? Can you tell me the name of the island pls.


    im not sure how to check the name of the island when im still playing it, but its the island right after the island were you collect the sea shells and the fish rod. i guess the spirits are called shades.

    Thank you

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:09 PM


    Ok so you are just trying to kill the shades then right? I'm still unsure of exactly which island you are on, but this is the best advice I can give you

    Just build as many guys as u can and go attack them. Try to kill the larger shades first because they are the ones who send the little ones in. Just keep going at it and you will kill them all eventually. It took me some time to kill the shades as they are hard to defeat. Just get a good army going. And make sure you have researched all theyre armor and everything.

    StealthBunny January 17, 2009 8:12 PM

    sionainn, thank you very much for your answer.. although I didn't ask where the fishing line was. I asked what it looked like. I still wanted to find it on my own... But thank you for answering so quickly.

    What a great game this is! So detailed! A lighter game than the Westwards, but without hearing the repetitive voices over and over :) But man! Some of those hidden 'uns are really HIDDEN!


    @ Tiger - The Rune Of Lightning Post

    The post to place the rune is just off center to the right about 4/5 the way up the screen

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:13 PM

    If anyone gets the what I think is the last level with the crystals..pls let me know. I'm down to one crystal left. The one with the 3 black and 3 white lights. I'm guessing you need to switch theyre sides..all the black over where the white is and the white where the black is. I just dont seem to be able to get it done.

    And still wondering about a previous island..I think worship island. With the 4 totems with the sun, star, moon and lightning on them. Also as someone else mentioned there is also pink dotted circles and when u move a guy into them the dots turn green.


    Stealthbunny, oops sorry, hope I didn't ruin it for you. I just wish someone could help me with Mist Island, especially since it sounds like a lot of people have passed it, I'm starting to get very frustrated because I keep walking around in the mist and I've gone as far as possible but there is no bulb thing! Grrrr!

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:19 PM


    It took me a while to find all the bulbs as well. I honestly don't remember exactly where I found each one. My advice to you is to take your guy as far to the edges as you can. So you can see as far as possible to see if maybe you are missing one in the darkness.

    Did you find the one near the arrow tower? I can't remember what you have to do, but need to like activate the arrow tower and it will show you a spot with crystals. I'm pretty sure there was a bulb there

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:21 PM


    I also believe there is one in the water. If you just click around in the water you should find it. It's the water where the stone thing is that you click and tells you to look in the water or something


    i need help the MIST island where do i find the
    Lightning bolts things?????


    Thanks shawty for the help

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:26 PM


    These will be at random spots on the map. Some are hidden very well. Mind you they do not look like lightning bolts. When you got to that spot at the top and it told you that you need the lightning bolts..right after that you would see lightning...there would not be a rod on the ground. This is what you need to get. Go back around the whole map and look for them. I believe there was one hidden in the clouds near the top left on the map. And I could be wrong but I think there was one near the water as well.

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:28 PM


    Your welcome. I'm sorry I couldn't be much more help. I finished that level a couple days ago and don't really remember where I found all of them. I'am now stuck myself on I think the last level, but no one seems to be there yet so I will have to wait I guess.

    Good luck


    I'm sorrry..I meant the THUNDERBOLTS...the things that are shaped like bullets. Where can I find them? I tried everywhere.


    I found the pearl in the water, but I seriously have pushed the black as far back as possible and have only fixed two of the light things! I'm so frustrated right now. I have no idea where this dumb bulb thing could be! Sorry, venting.

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:37 PM


    Yes that is wat I'm talking about too

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:55 PM

    Ok I'm happy I figured out how to switch all the lights for the last crystal..Yay!! :D

    But if anyone figured out the 4 totems on I think worship island. Please let me know!


    thank you for all the help i beat the shades

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 8:56 PM


    No problem. See it just takes time and patience with them :)

    shawty613 January 17, 2009 9:05 PM


    Also, use the mini map. You will see small little paths that you might not see looking at the map itself. So use the mini map and send your guy down those paths

    serenhybrid January 17, 2009 9:10 PM

    Hello everyone! I think I've managed to miss the

    Frost Tower somehow. I've got the Thunder Tower and I'm on the island where you first meet King Shade (with the enchanted skeleton pyramids). There's a gap in the building menu where I think the Frost Tower should go.

    Have I really missed it, or do I pick it up later? And if I have missed it, please could someone tell me what Island it is on?! Thank you!

    mancunian October 6, 2012 9:09 AM

    Hi, I wonder if some one can help me? I'm stuck on Beetle Island with the flames how do I get them out/on whatever is needed.
