Twisted Wizard

Note: This mini game is now retired.

Walkthrough by Prickly Dolphin, Fuzzy-B, Slanted Fish

To get Greg off his video game console on Wimpy Wonderland Island, you’ll have to beat the game Twisted Wizard for him! It’s three whole levels of ogre-zapping fun!

Already completed Wimpy Wonderland? You can still experience the fun by going to the Games tab in your inventory and selecting the Twisted Wizard CD!

Starting the Game

Go to your backpack (inventory) and go into the games section and click on the game card for Twisted Wizard. It should look like a CD, as shown in the image above.

Enabling Easy Mode

If you want to play in easy mode, go to your Wimpy Wonderland inventory and click on the Twisted Wizard guide. Your Poptropican will say that you can enable Easy mode by clicking on the wizard on the Start Menu. Open the CD from your inventory, click on the wizard, and it will allow you to enable Easy mode. Click okay to start playing.

How to Play

Build walls and use magic to defend your wizard from the evil ogres! Press the spacebar to rotate building blocks and click to place them completely around your wizard.


You will play as the blue-robed wizard standing in the center of a field. In each round, you’ll be given time (indicated in the upper-left corner) to build blocks around your wizard. Blocks can be rotated by pressing the spacebar, and you click to place them on the field. You cannot overlap blocks (shown by red) and you should aim to have at least two blocks all around you (shown by the black circle in the image below):

Once time is up for placing blocks, the ogres will start coming. If they get close enough, they can destroy parts of your castle. You also need to prevent them from reaching you or it’s game over. To get rid of them, click on the ogres as they approach to zap them with lightning. As you progress through the levels, they will start coming faster, so be on your guard!

There are three total waves (levels) you must get through. At the end of each round, you’ll have time to repair your castle and build more blocks before the next wave of ogres comes through.  When you’ve survived through all three waves and time runs out, you’ll win. Congratulations!

Player tips

  • By Shaggy Tornado: If two of the ogres show up next to each other, you can click between them so you can kill them both. You might waste time if you click on each one separately.
  • By Hazy Girl: Try building as many blocks as you can for building a castle.
  • By Hazy Girl: If the ogres have red eyes, that tells you that they are moving fast. Defeat them.

  3. Prickly Dolphin says:

    I am not one of the creators. I just wanted to be a helpful person. After all, I like Twisted Wizard. I played it! Thats why I wrote a guide. To help other people. Other people have been waiting for the guide. So I wrote a guide and provided some help for the PHB. PHB stands for Poptropica Help Blog.

    Its either i’m slow or since i’m 9 I can’t go so fast.
    Could you help me?

  5. Kendra says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant beat twisted wizard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is impossible!!!! i quit this island cuz ill never beat it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Incredible Bubbles says:

      It is possible. I have beaten Wimpy Wonderland twice now. Yes, beating Twisted Wizard is very hard, but it is not impossible. And, please, don’t yell, when you use that many exclamation marks, it can look like yelling, even if you don’t have all the words in caps.

    • Shifty hopper says:

      You have to click on the wizard before you play. You also need the guide for it to work. I tryed clicking on he wizard before I played and it said cheat mode not active or something like that. So you need the guide AND THEN Greg will activate it. One last note is that wen I said to click on the wizard before you play, I meant on the screen where it says click to play.

  6. Prickly Dolphin says:

    Wow, I can’t believe it! People are posted on my guide. Hooray! Guys, you have to switch to easy mode like you did on Wimpy Wonderland. You know, if you worked on the island, you would know how to play it. Hoped I helped!

    • Prickly Dolphin says:

      To switch to easy mode, you use the Twisted Wizard Guide from your inventory if u have it! :mrgreen: Find the twisted wizard guide in Greg’s locker. Code is: 9, 37, 15. There now you could get the guide. Enjoy!

  7. Shaggy Tornado says:

    Nice guide Prickly Dolphin! It will be really helpful to those who have or haven’t completed the island yet! 😀

    Random tip: If two of the ogres show up next to each other, you can click between them so you can kill them both. You might waste time if you click on each one separately.

  8. Prickly Dolphin says:

    You are right Shaggy Tornado. Thanks for saying nice. I have been waiting for a Twisted Wizard guide. Only nobody hadn’t posted one yet. So I tried the game first to see what I could do. Then I started typing on the Game Guides section. I typed a guide in the comments. Then Hi.juyo posted my guide and edited it! Thanks people for checking out!

  9. Hazy Girl says:

    :mrgreen: Wow, Prickly, you are amazing at Poptropica. One tip: Try buliding as many blocks as you can for buliding a castle. Tip: If the ogres have red eyes, that tells you that they are moving fast. Defeat them

    • SCREAMER! says:

      If time runs out while you are building, or these monsters get you, it shows you a screen that says: “Alas, you have failed!

  10. Invisible Bee says:

    Is there any other way to beat Wimpy Wonderland Without doing twisted wizard? I Hope so, the Poptropica Official guide does not help and neither does easy mode

  11. Rough Dragon says:

    I started 2005 when i was 5. this game is AWESOME!!

    I love you Jeff Kinney

    hes the guy who made poptropica

    I learned about poptropica from a freind

    • ZorroKitty says:

      just because you are to old for the character ages does not men you cannot play if you like the game I am 16 and a half and I play because I love it and am severely addicted to it

    • Shifty hopper says:

      ‘sighs’ you need to click on the wizard when it’s on the screen that reads ‘click on the screen to play!’ and btw, this game IS possible to beat. I competed the island three times.

  12. becky says:

    i can’t get passed this game! I’m 12 and i am stuck on Twisted Wizard
    does anyone else have any tips? thank-you so much Prickly Dolphin now some people out there will have hope of finishing this horrid game, i wish there was more people like u! 🙂

  13. Angry Poptropican says:

    That was so helpfull … NOT !!! don’t u think I already did this so thanks for basically repeating the instructions

  14. strange beetle says:

    guys, its not your fault that if u dont like twisted w. this is just a guide made to help beginners in the game. also, dont post mean comments because u know not everyone is good at everything. its just a game, okay? dont overreact to this, plz

  15. strange beetle says:

    and its not poptropicas fault, either. making a challenging makes games better, and thats why they made this guide 😀

  16. icy skull, i wright about comedic war not tradgedies. says:

    I started playing when ghost story came out, how long is that? really bad at math!

  17. ZorroKitty says:

    I wish the game designers had kept the twisted wizard game as optional I have tried so many times trying to beat it with the easy mode and I still can’t beat it anyone got tips on defeating the game besides making the walls thick

  18. Ryan says:

    When Wimpy Wonderland first came out you didn’t need to actually play twisted wizard for Greg. Now you don’t have the option to USE the twisted wizard guide. You can only examine it which is totally not fair because it can be pretty annoying to play

  19. Friendly Lion says:

    Tip: If you build at ring of building blocks around the wizard, It will magically fill up the space inside. but once the orges break through the ring, the wall dissapears. Build a big wide wall!

  20. Friendly Lion says:

    I found poptropica when i was visiting the offical Diary Of a Wimpy Kid website. it was showing the quote “Wimpy Wonderland Now On Poptropica!” But when I registered on thde next day Super Villian Island just released for the public.

    • Clean shell - i love spoilers says:

      that happened to me too! but that was the day wimpy wonderland is now online to everyone and thats the day red dragon island came out,

  21. Magenta says:

    How do you enable cheats.I need to do that before I enable easy mode

    Slanted Fish: It’s the same thing. The guide will explain how to enable easy mode.

  22. Cuddly Lion says:

    As I’m a member, I know for a fact that before the island was released for non-members, you only had to open the curtains, not do both. I liked the old way better. 😦

  23. poptropicasosship455 says:

    i can’t turn it on easy mode and i still haven’t completed wimpy wounderland. is that why?

    • DJScratchStep says:

      If you click on Greg after reading the game guide in Wimpy Wonderland Island, he will say he already has cheats enabled. Just click the wizard and a message should pop up saying “EASY MODE ENABLED”. Just click the play button and you should be good to go!

  24. Red Fang says:

    I found out that you have to click on the wizard on the very first screen… I just wanted to add a couple things. You should focus on building a wall with at least one square thick first, keep adding to it to make it a whole lot thicker until you run out of time and/or blocks. Also, if you get a breach in your wall, (like, a hole) then the ogre’s eyes turn red and they get faster and stuff. It might take a couple tries to get it… It took me like 100! 🙂 Thanks for making this, it helped me a lot.

    • Nadia says:

      So am I, Twisted Wizard is so hard, why can’t Greg just stop playing the game and try to find his brother like he’s supposed to?! #WorstBrotherEVER

  25. shifty bubbles says:

    I finally beat it this past april and I have been stuck on it for nearly 3 YEARS. I finally beat it without the guide.😎I ❤ this guide

  26. Rainbowmagic656 says:

    I only got to the 3rd wave once! This is so complicated. I heard Poptropica is going to update it. I hope they make it easier or optional or something like that. Otherwise I’ll NEVER EVER BEAT THE GAME. Anyway thanks for the guide.

  27. Maganashake says:

    Actually, the trick to tap super fast and build two blocks around you like I did to complete this island

  28. Maganashake says:

    Actually,Reality Island is one of the islands I cannot complete honestly.( not like Nabooti) since I completed the other sponsored ones before they were locked.

  29. Layomi says:

    Don’t create a wide area for your castle. One touch by an ogre will destroy a block and as you try to kill that ogre, another one can come out of nowhere touch the corner of that wide area snd destroy the entire barrier.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
