Twisted Thicket Island Guide

Walkthrough written by Super Thunder & Brave Tomato

Go to Twisted Thicket if you’re not yet there.

That’s the member-only Lumberjerk outfit. Go right, until you get to the construction area. Apparently, it’s a “hard-hat area”, too. Talk to the official-looking dude in the white hat and sunglasses.

You’re job is to go into those scary woods, and track down the creatures. Do you do it? Of course you do! Go right, after the white hat guy, and you’ll come to this orange see-through tunnel. Go up.

Continue going up, and go right. Go down the stairs, and you’ll come to these scary woods you’ve heard of. Ready or not, here I come, creatures! Go right and enter the thicket. First, you’ll see something that looks like a glowing acorn.

Go right, a little, get the acorn (Lesovyk Rune is the official name) but then, a bunch of tiny dryads will come up, and clump to you, and carry you away if you don’t move fast. Most of Twisted Thicket is made of strategy and quick-thinking. To get past the dryads, but still be able to pass through the high trunks, you need to let some of the dryads pick you up.

This is just enough for your Poptropican to become a little lighter, so you can float past the trunks. Move quickly, however, because those dryads come fast. Also, remember that navigating is hard with dryads; the main advice is don’t stop moving. They’ll come at you and stick, if you do stop. Also, remember that they can pick you up, but they can also carry you down.

After the dryads, you get a small break. Just go up the branches.

After the branches, you’ll come to some green vines. This is just some vine hopping, don’t worry. Ignore those pesky elves chopping the vines down. Just avoid them, and go left.

Eventually, you’ll have to go up. Go up, ignoring the little elves.

As you go right, and try to hop on a vine, you’ll fall. But don’t worry, there’s a branch there to catch you, so when you land, you can get the Kobold Rune. Then you can keep on going right, up the branches, and right. Now you’ll come to four long vines, dangling in front of you. Don’t worry, this is a bit like Pole Climb. You need to think really fast, and move quick if an elf is there. Just climb, and jump.

Once you reach the top of the vines, you’ll be at the treetop. There is a sort of pattern involved here. Dryads will fly in a formation. This is the order in which you have to do it to get past them.

1. Jump. The dryads will make a loop once, then when they turn red, jump.

2. Duck. The dryads will, like the first time, loop, but this time they’ll come a little higher. Duck to avoid being stung.

3. Walk in when empty. The dryads will loop, and you need to walk in the center when there’s an opening. Then, walk out of the center, when there’s an opening again.

4. Walk in opposite way. This is the same step as the third, only now the dryads will be going the opposite way.

Repeat this pattern until you can go right. Next come… The trolls! For the first troll, jump on the little platform to avoid the boulder.

Then, go right, and when the boulder is ducked down, jump on his back to get to the upper level.

For the second and third trolls, you also just need to go platform hopping, to avoid the boulders when they come by you. When you’re finally at the last troll, jump on the platform and wait. Then, the boulder collapses on him!

Fail, troll. Jump on the boulder, and continue going up. As you’re going up, get the Jotunn Rune.

Now, beware the Nokken! It can turn invisible, but still, you can see it’s footprints. It’s tiny, red, glowing, evil footprints…

If you see this near you, move as fast as you can! Go right, avoiding the Nokken.

Caution: Just because you’re underwater doesn’t mean you’re safe. Those “currents” you see are actually the Nokken! Watch out for those currents! (bubbles moving in a speedy direction) Oh, and those green seaweed-like plants underwater could sting you a bit.

You’ll get the Nackrosor Rune.

The next part is the goblin part, which, like the dryads, is a sort of pattern. But, if you don’t move fast…

Remember to do low jumps for small objects, high jumps for tall obstacles, and don’t jump when there’s a little goblin hanging. Go right, quickly and fast.

Along the way, you’ll see the Dokkalfar Rune. Jump up there and get it. And then you’ll get to zipline, while the little goblin jump to their little deaths!

Okay. You get a break. After those dangerous dryads, evil elves, treacherous trolls, nasty Nokkens, and… I can’t think of any alliteration for the gnomes…. However, you do end up in front of a tree. And it’s a big one, too.

tt1

You’ll need to open that passage. Now, this is where those stones (excuse me, runes) come in. You need to click on the little shapes in the trees in the order you have found them (look in your items section for reference in which runes you got in order). The order is Lesovyk (the acorn), Kobold (the twig), Jotunn (the mushroom thing), Nackrosor (the tree), and finally the Dokkalfar (the stump), conveniently in order from left to right!

The branches will open up and reveal a secret passage. Let’s go check it out!

But when you walk in, there are a bunch of woodland creatures there. Knowing their bad reputation, you freak out. However, they look at you and do nothing, except for the Nokken, who’s dozing off.

tt2

(Hey, everybody! It’s our old friend, Mr. Freakout Guard Elf!)

However, after the camera pans on you, it goes to an elven girl, who WELCOMES you to their area.

tt3

Okay, now these creatures have got some ‘splaining to to. Go and talk to the girl and she introduces herself as the elf queen. She also says that this thicket is the last refuge of the magical world. Umm… there are unnatural things in other islands too, ya know. But, well, your world, I see. Hmm. Maybe this thicket isn’t as twisted as I thought before.

However, she mentions that this is all because of human construction, and you appropriately sport a concerned “I feel bad for you” frown.

tt4

You’ll ask “Humans forced you here?” She replies saying that the modern technology has destroyed their homes and took away most of its magic.

(Awkward how she mentioned that while I’m carrying a chainsaw. I didn’t do anything! This was just part of the costume!)

The orb is the source of the magic in the thicket. It’s the only way they could defend themselves, and it has to be protected.

(Note: The following part of the cutscene has a lot going on, so you may expect lag.)

Suddenly, as if on cue, ropes appear and humans start sliding down. It’s the lumberjerks! The official-looking dude from before, called the developer, returns and thanks you for bringing them to the heart of the forest. And that’s not a good thing. Cause they’re going to breach the thicket of its magical defenses and bulldoze this place to build this giant casino.

Suddenly, one of the lumberJERKS swings his chainsaw and DESTROYS the orb!!! Okay, it’s freak out time.

tt5

(How is the Nokken able to sleep through all this?? Must be a heavy sleeper.)

A worker points out the magic that has been destroyed. The lumberjerks laugh, the queen is hardly stricken, and the developer says this:

tt6

With that, the lumberjerks and the developer pick up pieces of the shattered orb and take off.

After those jerks are gone, the Elf Queen will give you an amulet, saying it’s the last bit of magic in this realm. And also says that you must use it to stop the Developer and save the forest!

She’ll say to take the tunnel to stop the developer and the lumberjerks. (Although all of those guys are developers, I want to separate the boss guy from them by calling him the developer.)

Then, she and the other woodland creatures turn to stone, left helpless without magic.  And that was when the Nokken woke up, finding he is now made of stone. The troll is even able to put on a sad face before he is turned.

tt7

No! This can’t be! You know that. You run off to the right.

Three construction vehicles pass you right on by, and they’re heading for the thicket! You need to stop them! The camera will for a second turn to the wrecking ball, dangling helplessly. Now, it’s time to use that magic.

Wear the amulet by clicking Put on. Three icons will appear on the bottom left of your screen. One will have the image of a dryad, one of a gnome, and one of a troll.

  • If you click on the dryad, leafy wings will sprout and you can fly (again)!
  • If you click on the gnome, you have the speed of Speeding Spike of Super Power Island, able to catch up to those speedy vehicles (and sport a patched hat while doing so!).
  • If you click the troll, you grow in size and have their strength.

Okay, you need to use those powers strategically.

First, use Gnome Speed to catch up to the wrecking ball vehicle. Once you’re on top of the vehicle, use Troll Strength and push on the little crane thing that goes up. It’ll be pushed down thanks to your strength.

Then, use Dryad Flight to reach the top of the crane where the wrecking ball is and pull the lever. The wrecking ball will land on the bulldozer, conveniently. Jump down and use Troll Strength and click on the wrecking ball. You’ll throw it at the neighboring right vehicle, where a lumberjerk guarding the fuse box will be knocked over.

tt8

Now, use Gnome Speed again to reach the orange vehicle and jump on top of the fuse box. Use the Troll strength again and click on the fuse box, and you’ll destroy it! This causes a chain construction vehicle accident. You’ll jump up to the driver’s door and stomp the Developer out of his seat. You’ll return yourself back to your normal human self and the Developer apologizes.

tt9

(And that, kids, teaches us a very important lesson about the forests and the environment!)

To prove his apology is true, he gives you the shards of the orb back! Yay!! Now, you’ll need to return these things to the Elf Queen to restore everyone back from stone!

You’ll arrive back at the heart of the forest and use the orb. The area will shine for a second…

tt10

…and the orb returns to its rightful place, turning all the creatures back to normal! Well, the Nokken goes back to sleep…

The Elf Queen is awake again and you kindly return the amulet. She thanks you for returning the orb and saving the forest. With that, she gives you the island medallion and 50 credits for the Poptropica Store! Congratulations! :D

Bonus Quest Time! (members only)

Just when you think everybody’s happy again, all of a sudden, the Elf Queen starts becoming transparent and solid over and over again. The orb is still missing pieces! And they’re all over the thicket!

The Elf Queen will return the amulet to you. Might as well wear it. She’ll ask of you to go to the tunnels and find the orb shards through there. Go to the tunnel on the right and wear the amulet. Select Gnome Speed and run through the spider webs. Enter through the tunnel there.

You’re at the place where the Nokken hated you. Go up the vine and go left until you reach this gate:

tt11

Enter through the gate. While still having Gnome Speed, run through the ladders to the other side. Once you’re at where the mushrooms are, use Dryad Flight and fly up to the first orb shard. One down, four to go. Use Gnome Speed again to exit the castle thing and exit the area through the tunnel you came out of.

Once you’re back in the tunnels, use Dryad Flight to fly up to the next floor. Continue going left and at the wall, fly up to the right. You’ll encounter a huge boulder. Now, use Troll Strength to push that boulder out of the way. You’ll call the boulder a “pebble” and push it out of the way. Sound familiar? Looks like our characters have been listening to Hercules’s cliche sayings back in Mythology Island. Enter through the tunnel.

Now, you’re in Troll Land. Use the Fairy Dryad Flight to fly up to where these vines are. Watch out for the spikes!

tt12

Navigate through the vine maze and you’ll encounter a random hanging boulder. There is an orb shard hidden behind it!! Get on the surface of the vine and use Troll Strength to push that boulder so you would be able to grab the shard. Two down three to go. Exit the area from where you came from (the cave without any skulls)

Continue going right. Another spiderweb. Time to use Gnome Speed again and go through it. Enter through the tunnel.

You’re in a new area. Put on those fairy wings. As you go along, you might wake up a couple of lil’ dryads in their homes. Luckily, they remember you as a friend. Use the fairy wings to fly over the first floor holes, fly to the second floor, then use the Gnome Speed to take care of the rest of the run (the stoned areas fall when you go on them) Three down, two to go. Exit the area.

Fly up and to the right (the left leads to the construction site, and you don’t wanna go there until you’re done) and enter that tunnel.

You’re in the vine area. Use Dryad Flight and go left until you see an area that says “Dryads only”. Continue going to the left and fly up and to the right. There’s the next shard! 4 down, one to go! Exit the area.

Go down a lot until you reach the area the first time you flew up. (between the first and second tunnels I told you) At this intersection, fly up and enter the arrowed tunnel.

tt13

You’ll see the Trojan… Deer? Huh… are the Creators trying to tell us something???

Fly up and to the left, over the open hole and a shard will fall. Well, you can’t exactly get it yet. Get to the ground on the other side, and use Troll Strength. There is a battering ram nearby. Jump to the other side of the ram and push it to the right, until the Trojan Deer gets crumbled and you can get the last shard.

tt14

Ta-da, you now have all the orb pieces!

tt15

Go back to the heart of the forest and talk to the elf queen. She’ll thank you once again for returning the orb pieces and returning the full magic of the forest.

tt16

Twice we did it, for twice we will be remembered!

Congratulations! You’ve finished Twisted Thicket Island! Now you get to enjoy this cool animated gif of a Twisted Thicket snail from Poptropica artist Nasan Hardcastle:

  1. A huge thanks goes to Brave Tomato and Super Thunder for writing this top-notch Twisted Thicket Island walkthrough! :D

    • i CAN’T GET PAST THE NOKKEN :(

      • Avalon the Great (aka Friendly Dragon) says:

        It’s tough, isn’t it? I just finished today after putting it on the side since the day of the release. :( You just have to move fast and know where he’s going to pop up next. He has a few favorite spots. xD

      • Avalon the Great (aka Friendly Dragon) says:

        It’s tough, huh? My best advice is just move fast and know where he’s going to pop up next. Once you get through the second pool, he’ll stop following you. I just finished it today after putting off trying it since opening day. xD Scared me to bits, personally. But don’t worry, you’ll get it!

      • Dr.Fennekin says:

        Funny pelican look at the paw prints on the screen so u can see him

    • Funny.Hardest one ever.

    • KimiAlyx says:

      They should give you 2 lives on the Nokken bit… I’ve beaten it only once, and I have to do the whole thing all over again because my brother restarted the island. CURSE YOU NOKKEN!!

  2. Tough Spider says:

    cool

  3. maroon lobster says:

    do you get to keep the amulet after the bonus quest?

  4. When I first saw that Dryad following her, I was like: “Dude! There is a thing following you! Run! Or else you will be picked up and fly away!”

  5. Golden Sponge says:

    Cool sadly not a member

  6. Man, I LOVE that amulet :)

  7. okay, okay, *cracks up for an hour* ah.. *wipes eyes* go to twisted thicket island, and go right until you get to the toilet *tries not to laugh* and flush it then jump over it. (don’t tell anyone what happens, just tell them to do it).

  8. Tough Spider says:

    if you are not a member just go to the photo album and customize the amulet! you will also get the powers!

  9. She never gave me the amulet again -_- i can’t do the bonus quest without it!!!!!!
    all she says is ” search the woods for more magical shards and bring them back here. you must hurry!

    • As mentioned in Tough Spider’s comment, try customizing the amulet from your photo album.

      • what happens if you dont have a pic of it

        Slanted Fish: You should, but if not – friend someone who is wearing one and costumize it from them. Or you can restart the island or check your inventory to make sure it’s there.

  10. Wait! since when do I only receive 50 credits for completing a island?! i noticed I only received 50 credits instead of 100, has that been happening?!

    Hijuyo: Yes, this change has been implemented for a while now. :\

    • I think because since there’s so many islands, the creators had to downgrade it to just 50 credits. I’m not too happy with that though,because you can’t even buy a costume with that! The good thing is, since I have membership now, I can just save credits I earn so I can get something new after my membership expires on Augest 17! :-D

  11. Monica says:

    HOW DO YOU LEAVE THE ISLAND

    Hijuyo: Use the blimp on the first area to travel to another island…

  12. Monica says:

    I’m stuck in that room with the elves and stuff but i can’t find my way back to the yellow blimp… help please?

  13. Um…. nasty can also be used for alliteration for gnomes…. it just has to start with the same sound… but I guess that “garden gnomes” doesn’t sound very threatening huh?

  14. TayTaysomindless says:

    i cant seem to go past the dryads part its too hard!

  15. hey! when u are done with this island,you go to the toilet and flush the toilet bowl and stand on it.it will bring u to the groud floor without u moving.Cool,isn’t it?

  16. Fierra xD says:

    Hey I’m stuck, I cant find the vines. What do i do?

  17. Golden Sponge says:

    I wonder if you can keep the amulet If only I could use the wing on betty jetty hmmm..

  18. FABULOUS! KEEP IT UP!

  19. Golden sponge says:

    you can coustumize the queen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. White Fang says:

    i’m unable to use the amulet when i try to stop the developer
    any one have a clue what’s going on?

    • You did put on the amulet right? And then you click on the little buttons in the left corner? If so, then Poptopica is probably just glitching. Try refreshing or logging out then logging back in. I don’t know. But that’s what I did.

  21. how do you exit if you dont have membership

    Slanted Fish: From where the elf queen is, go all the way to the right and exit through a tunnel, following its path until you’re back on Main Street.

  22. i cant belive those lumberjerks smashed the orb, well i’m not really surprised we got set up. Remember how on spy island Director D was actually part of B.A.D?

    • and i am also surprised that the nokken slept trough all that (the lumberjerks swooping in and smashing the orb) unless when he hated you that invisibility must of been a lot of power

  23. ...Unknown says:

    After you in the tunnels, when your by the exit, i cant seem to get up there. What should i do? :/

    • Navigating the tunnels should be pretty straightforward. If you can’t reach an area, you may be going the wrong way.. try to find the correct “exit.”

  24. no it says exit but theres no way to get up

  25. purple fire says:

    I need help put ruin stones in wrong order cant cant them back out

  26. Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! :):):):):):) Without this, I would have not completed Twisted Thicket.

  27. u could have used naughty knome for alliteration

  28. Can I just say, I use this this for, like, every Poptropica island and it is SO HELPFUL!! Thank you!!

    • I tried, like, a MILLION times at the first part with the dryads before I checked here, and after the tip about not stopping, I did it on the first try. AWESOME!!!

  29. how do i get off twisted thicket island?

  30. So Should friend me!!!

  31. I pretended my guy ( dressed like Dr.Hare ) wanted to DATE the forest queen

  32. Umm i cant get on the fuse box and its annoying me so i cant finish this island. Help meee!

    • You have to use the elf that runs fast, and jump on top of it. Then, use the troll strength. If you can’t jump on it, try to jump on the ledge above it. I hope that helped!

  33. Yellow Comet says:

    I wish I could be a member!

  34. lizabeth says:

    I’m stuck! I’ve tried going back the long way but there’s a tall wall in the part where the nokken used to be that I can’t go over. If I had the magical amulet, I think I could get back and used the dyrad flying thing to fly over that wall, but I already put on the island’s medallion and I can’t tell how to put the amulet back on. The only way I can think of is to restart the island! Phoey. But I think I can keep the credits and island medallion, right?

  35. Katniss:)20 says:

    if I were you I would have put “gnarly gnmes”

  36. Katniss:)20 says:

    i’m not a member, so i’m not doing the bonus quest. how do you even get back to your blimp?

  37. Chilly Crush says:

    Thanks so much for the help! :)

  38. i beat the island but when i tried to leave (since im not a member) i cant get past the nokken part after you climb the vine…any help?

  39. The Nokken really creeps me out :P

  40. hey I cant get out of the nokken place and I already finished the island, but I thought the only way was to just restart the island cuz it looks like theres no flippin way out..

  41. What mean,, push on the little crane thing that goes up”?

  42. Sriyogirl says:

    What do you mean by arrowed tunnel?

  43. nice pear says:

    how many times do i have to go throw the stages on the tree tops to get past the bug things

  44. Orange Grape says:

    That Nokken is one creepy creature! It scares me everytime it appears then I lose!

  45. You get out by going right out through the tunnel.

  46. I don’t know about you guys, but I think the Nokken is ADORABLE!!!!! Right? Right? So CUTE!!!!

  47. Golden Fox says:

    That Nokkan scared me to death 0.0

  48. little hopper says:

    ok, so when I reached the troll part, to the 3rd troll, I didn’t click anything but suddenly I was on the map, when I went back to twisted thicket I was in main street? does that happen to anyone? please answer!

  49. What do the elf and the roll say when you click on them after you have finished the bonus quest?

  50. I can’t get past the Nokken I don’t get why it’s so difficult. Just look at it’s eyes…. (O_o)

  51. AwesomeTurtle says:

    The Nokken is so annoying
