Game Introduction – Botanicula

Welcome to the Botanicula walkthrough on Gamezebo. Botanicula is a point-and-click adventure game played on PC and Mac created by Amanita Design. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide on how to complete Botanicula.

Three Feathers

Botanicula

  • Pull the spider down to release his balloon
  • Then click on his balloon
  • Go west

Botanicula

  • All of your friends can have a go at getting the feather; click on each of them in turn. Only Mr. Twig will be successful

  • Go back east and then north

Botanicula

  • Click on the bud to release the bug

  • Go north

Botanicula

  • Click on the six pods for a creature card
  • You can also click on the bee that lands

  • Go east

Botanicula

  • The third feather is just floating here, so click on it
  • Go two screens back west to the main junction and go south to the creature who lost his feathers
  • As soon as you give him the feathers you won’t be able to go back, though, so if you’ve missed any creature cards, go get them now
  • Click on the big creature to give him back his feathers

Click on the empty ladle flowers to move them left and right so the water lands on the dead flower in the middle. The circled flowers in the image need to be where they are in the image, the rest can be anywhere else

Fourteen Chickens

  • After the scene go south to the city map

Botanicula

Botanicula

  • House A
  • You need to create a chicken by sounding the three trumpets. At first the results may seem random, but there is actually a pattern. Follow these steps, paying attention to the color of the trumpets:
  • a) Click the bottom trumpet twice. You should get two parts of the same color: red, green or blue
  • b) If the parts are red, click the middle trumpet to get a chicken (1/14)
  • c) If the parts are green, click the top trumpet for a frog
  • d) If the parts are blue, click the bottom trumpet a third time for a snail
  • Take the chicken and exit

Botanicula

Botanicula

  • Mr. Lantern will follow your mouse back and forth, each time swinging a little further. Keep moving him back and forth to gain enough momentum to swing through the hole
  • Mr. Twig will follow your mouse to bounce onto the trumpets. Bounce on one trumpet enough times to a black spider comes out. Then bounce on the spider to return to the city
  • To get Mrs. Mushroom out of her dream, pop all the bubbles so she falls through the hole
  • Mr. Feather just keeps on falling and falling. Pop his bubble when a black sphere comes up

Botanicula

  • Mr. Poppyhead needs to catch all the bubbles until one comes out containing a chicken (4/14)
  • House F
  • Click on the Shaman chestnut three times
  • He needs an ant egg before he will give you the chicken
  • Go to the city map and exit to the west

Botanicula

  • When you try to take the large ant egg, Mr. Lantern will be carried off to the nest
  • Exit southwest
  • Pull the cork out of the bottom of the nest and go in through the hole

Botanicula

  • You’re able to only see a small part of the nest at one time, so at each junction you will have to guess your route. The screenshot shows the whole maze. You need to make at least one wrong turn to get a creature card
  • When you find Mr. Lantern, keep clicking on him until he has wriggled himself free
  • You will get an ant egg

Botanicula

  • Return to house F and give the ant egg to the Shaman

  • When it’s dark, take the chicken (5/14)

Botanicula

  • House H
  • There’s a lot to do in this place!
  • First light the lamp with the light from house G
  • The next step takes some agility: you need to click on the running chicken on the line, pull it down and release it so it bounces. Eventually, it will bounce against the ceiling and get stuck. You can then take it (6/14)

Botanicula

  • House J

  • Pull the lever to revive the Frankenstein chestnut
  • Click on all five dials to have to cuckoo chickens come out

Botanicula

  • House O
  • Click on the chestnut and he will challenge you to a volleyball match
  • Play with Mrs. Mushroom
  • Keep bouncing the ball back to the chestnut. When the ball hits the ground on your side of the net, the chestnut scores a point; when the ball hits the ground on his side of the net, you score a point. You need three points to win

  • Have Mr. Feather lift the penguin by clicking on it and dragging it further and further up until it lets go

Botanicula

  • Return to the big house in the north to return the chickens

Eight Blue Eyes

The Root System

Botanicula

  • You’ve now entered the root system, which is a bit of a maze. Be systematic in your way through it and pay close attention to the symbols by the exits. I’m going to make my way through roughly clockwise

Botanicula

  • We’re first going to follow the symbol with three circles on sticks, with a few side trips, so go east

Botanicula

  • Click a few times on both mushrooms
  • Before we continue on to the circles on sticks, briefly go west to get your mission

Botanicula

  • You’re in a cave with a creature with many eyes hanging from the ceiling. Inside is a disc with a star on it, which you will need for a later mission. Pick the flower with the blue bud. The bud will be swallowed by the eye creature and one of its eyes will open. To get the disc out, you will need to find eight of these blue buds/eyes in total. There are nine locations in which you can find them, but as with the coins in the previous chapter, you will only find eight in the first eight places you look
  • Go back east to the cave you just came from and go east again

Botanicula

  • Click on the baby in the swinging cot and wait for the mom to return. You will get the creature card later

  • Go east

Botanicula

  • Chase the black deer all the way around
  • Talk to the black bean

  • Click, drag and release one of the heavier of your friends (Mr. Poppyhead is quite effective) to break the meteor

Botanicula

  • Click on the yellow planet eleven times until a flower with a blue bud pops up
  • Take the blue bud
  • Click on the yellow planet a few more times, and keep clicking on all the other planets until you’ve found all tricks and you get a creature card
  • Go west to the little caterpillar symbol

Botanicula

  • Welcome to the trickiest and most frustrating part of the game! The worm on the left has stolen the black bean’s star and you need to get it back. Click once on the star to attach it to your cursor, then slowly drag it through the maze to the exit where your friends are. The worm will wake up and quite rapidly follow you. If he captures the star he will take it back to his lair and you will have to start over. You have to be quite precise in the route you take, because if you move your cursor outside of the tunnel even a little bit, the star will get stuck. When that happens just put your cursor over the star again and continue, but you will lose valuable time
  • Follow the circles on sticks symbol back to the black bean in cave E

Botanicula

  • Put the star in the center of the cave. Surprise! He’s actually a green bean!
  • Click on the green bean(s) several times to get the card
  • Take the blue bud and the beach ball
  • Go southwest

Botanicula

  • Light the three lamps. There are multiple small lamps you can light too, including one on the screen to the north, but this won’t give you anything new
  • Briefly go southeast, following the symbol that looks like an Easter egg, to find out that you need to find a trumpet (image shown below), then return to this screen
  • Go southwest to the water symbol

Botanicula

  • There are five bouncy creatures here, and each of your five friends will bounce on a specific creature when you click on it. You need to make all your friends bounce at the same time. To do this, click on the creatures in the order shown in the image in fairly quick succession. Then click once more to release them all
  • Go southeast, following the symbol that looks like… um… Pacman? Let’s say Pacman

Botanicula

  • You will get a new mission: find the star, water, sun and leaf discs. You’ve already seen the star disc with the eye monster
  • Go back to the room with the bouncy creatures and go southwest to the water symbol

Botanicula

  • You will need to find an eye for the yellow submarine
  • Return to the bouncy creatures and go west, following the symbol that looks like a light bulb

Botanicula

  • You can see the trumpet that the little guy in the Easter egg room is looking for, but you can’t get to it from this side
  • Take the northwest exit to the infinity symbol

Botanicula

  • I don’t know exactly when it happens, but if you chase the little creatures around enough you will get their card
  • Take the north exit towards cave O

Botanicula

  • Take the northwest exit to cave O

Botanicula

  • You can now take the trumpet
  • Make your way back through the infinity cave to the top part of cave M (light bulb symbol) and go straight north, to the cloud symbol

Botanicula

  • Click on some of the pointy mushrooms to release tiny fireflies. When one of the fireflies is in front of the green frog, click on him for him to catch the flies. When you miss he will catch Mr. Feather (don’t worry, he will spit him out again). When you succeed you will get another card and a blue bulb will grow on the left side of the tunnel
  • Go south to the cloud symbol

Botanicula

  • You need to make your way to the east exit of the cave by bouncing from planet to planet on the cushion creatures. You can move the creatures around by clicking on them. The directions you can jump in will be indicated with white arrows
  • First jump straight down onto the small cushion in the default position on planet 1

Botanicula

  • Move the small cushion aside and move the large cushion to where the small one was
  • Make sure the cushion on planet 2 is on the bottom side of the planet, or else you will bounce back to the start

  • Move on to planet 3

Botanicula

  • Move the cushion to the top of planet 2

  • Follow the symbol with the three circles on sticks. As soon as you see the Easter egg symbol, follow that one

Botanicula

  • Give the trumpet to the creature

Botanicula

  • Click on the monster for a card
  • To get the blue bud, take exits A, B and D

  • When you fall down, take exits A and B again and then take the sun disc
  • Exit west to find yourself back in cave I
  • Follow the water symbol back to cave L with the yellow submarine

Botanicula

  • Give the eye from the circus act to the submarine and click to board

Botanicula

  • To get the creature card you need to race the striped ladybug around the track and win
  • To move your (dotted) ladybug, click once on the disc in the middle and pull it into the direction you want to move
  • If the two ladybugs bump into each other, yours will slow down while the striped one speeds up, so be careful
  • The best way to win is to stay just behind the striped bug until it swerves away from the center and then to quickly overtake it on the inside
  • After completing a race, win or lose, the peanut creature will jump up and down with excitement. While he is jumping, quickly click on the purple pumpkin on the wall behind him to knock off his helmet (thanks Eli!)

  • With all eight blue buds (or seven if you took the one from the eye monster itself) make your way back to cave C with the eye monster

Botanicula

  • Feed the buds through the tube one by one until all eight eyes are open and you’ll receive the star disc
  • Go south to the water/Pacman symbols and southeast to the spirit guy who set you the disc challenge in cave K

Botanicula

  • Make sure you’ve completed everything you need to do in this chapter and then click on the spirit to give him the discs

Five Spheres of Energy

  • You’re in a completely black area. You can go in various directions but you just get snapped back by the mouths in the wall. However, you can go through the mouths if you click on them when you’re near them

Botanicula

  • North
  • The giant leech will grab you and put you into one of the pods. If you try and take the energy sphere, he will just catch you and put you back
  • Click on the pod to the left of you (A) and then on the white arrow that appears in front of it. The creature inside the pod will be released, and while the leech is busy catching it you have time to move into the empty pod
  • Repeat the process with pod B
  • Finally, click to release Mrs. Mushroom in pod C, but then instead of trying to get into her pod, quickly grab the energy sphere

Botanicula

  • Northeast
  • When you try to take the energy sphere, the anemones will snap at you and block your way. The only anemone not in your way is #7
  • You can pull the anemones down by pulling others up. Each anemone controls one or two others:
  • 1 controls 5 and 7
  • 2 controls 3 and 6
  • 3 controls 2 and 4
  • 4 controls 3 and 5
  • 5 controls 4 and 1
  • 6 controls 2
  • 7 controls 1
  • You need to figure out a way to pull anemones 1-6 down and out of your way. Unfortunately you can’t reset this puzzle, but in case you’ve come here from the default position as shown in the image, click 1, 3, 4, 5, 1. If you’ve already changed the default setting, try and work it so that anemone 1 is up and all the others are down. Then pull 7 up and 1 down and grab the sphere

Botanicula

  • East
  • On the next three screens you will need to click on Mr. Lanter to charge him and then click on the enemies coming towards him to shoot them. Don’t wait until you see something move before you charge, but recharge as soon as you’ve shot. Fortunately you can’t really miss. Some enemies you have to shoot multiple times, as shown by the number of red eyes. If they catch you, you have to restart the screen
  • On screen three they will all start coming at you at once, so shoot the nearest ones first
  • When you’ve shot all the little ones on screen three, take the energy sphere

Botanicula

  • A giant, slow moving monster will come up, so keep shooting it until it’s dead
  • When it’s dead, grab the energy sphere again

Botanicula

  • West
  • Once again you will be thwarted in your efforts to get the energy sphere
  • Click on the snappy things in the order shown in the image to tie them all into a messy tangle
  • Try to take the sphere and they will snap at you again and tighten the knot
  • Make for the sphere a second time to be successful
  • Northwest
  • Click on the sphere to light the room

Botanicula

  • Click on one of the creature’s legs

Botanicula

  • Rather than going for the energy sphere, click on the blob itself

Botanicula

  • If you move your cursor to the sphere, it will jump to a different blob. You can get the sphere when it’s on the second blob from the left but try them all for some fun
  • When the sphere is on the second blob from the left, move your cursor around the sphere to the blob itself and click on it

Botanicula

  • Direct the sphere with Mr. Lantern in it to the energy sphere by shooting jellyfish at it
  • Finish the game by exiting south and then clicking on the sphere to the right of the spider
