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, youโ€™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. ย When you’ve survived through all three waves and time runs out, you’ll win. Congratulations!

Player tips

  • Byย Shaggy Tornado:ย 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.
  • Byย Hazy Girl:ย Try building as many blocks as you can for building a castle.
  • Byย Hazy Girl:ย If the ogres have red eyes, that tells you that they are moving fast. Defeat them.

    1. here’s a tip: when the area closest to your wizard is darker than the rest, make sure NO OGRES destroy that! that makes their eyes red



      1. I started Poptropica when Skullduggery island came out and have been playing ever since. I’ve beaten everything Poptropica has to offer so I just beat the new islands when they come out, and I have plans to make a blog as well. I am 12 years old and I still like Poptropica, 3 years after I first started playing. I told at least 30 of my friends about it and they have accounts. Friend me my username is polymon1. PATHFINDERS FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Mom told me about poptropica! I started in 2010, but I can’t remember the month.

      2. i started playing poptropica when time tangled came out. my friends in 1st grade showed me it.

    1. I started playing when Time Tangled came out cuz my sis was playing and I asked her what it was, and then I got addicted to poptropica. Then i just forgot about it and like three months ago my friend sarah was playing and i remembered about it. my account had been deleted cuz i didn’t play 4 a long time but i created a new one and I A M A D D I C T E D P O P T R O P I C A A G A I N ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

      BTW add me my username is luckypotterhead
      and add sarah her username is sarahgriffiths3765

  2. Oh by the way, thanks for helping, Prickly Dolphin. I am glad you helped. Now anyone on Poptropica could use it and play the new game. Thanks alot! I am so happy!!!! Great job with the editing Hi.juyo

  3. 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.

  4. I still can’t get past it T_T My mothers computer (Which i’m using right now)
    is very fast unless i’m playing a 3D game it slows down.
    Its either i’m slow or since i’m 9 I can’t go so fast.
    Could you help me?

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

    1. 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.

    2. 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. 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!

    1. 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. Nice guide Prickly Dolphin! It will be really helpful to those who have or haven’t completed the island yet! ๐Ÿ˜€

    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. 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. :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

    1. 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. 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. 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

      1. I started playing when I was in third grade I am now in eleventh so it was created in 2005 it had only just came out when I found it with only one island

        Slanted Fish: No, Poptropica was released in 2007.

    1. 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

    1. ‘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. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  14. 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. and its not poptropicas fault, either. making a challenging makes games better, and thats why they made this guide ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Add me as your friend because I’m awesome!! My Username: Pariscoffee. I sorta look like a zombie because of my new outfit!! I have completed one level and it is Reality TV island!!! Virus Hunter island is Awesome!!! And I can beat Twisted Wizard!!!!!๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ€

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

  17. 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. 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. 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. 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.

    1. 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. 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. whoa whoa whoa whoa.
    I’ve have tried it 107 times and I still can’t get it right.
    can you help me?

  23. 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. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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

    1. 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!

  25. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for making this, it helped me a lot.

    1. Go to your friends profile and click on the little “+” button to the side, then enter your friend’s username and they’ll be added to your friends list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. 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

  26. 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.๐Ÿ˜ŽI โค this guide

  27. 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.

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

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. couldn’t beat this as a kid in primary school.. ten years later as an adult and I still can’t ๐Ÿ˜ฅ (I’m playing on flashpoint)

What's popping, Poptropicans?
