Northern Tale

  • There are three game modes from which you can choose;
  • Normal – “For experienced players who have played this type of game before” Levels are timed. Look for timer along the left side of the game screen.
  • Multiclick – “Queue up multiple actions for your workers.” Here you can click up to two actions ahead. A green arrow will appear on any item you queue for a worker to remove.
  • No Time – “Relaxed mode, no time limits” All game play is the same except there is no timer which makes the game much easier.

Northern Tale

Game Elements

  • There are several game elements you should be familiar with before you begin. Many of the major elements are shown circled and labeled in the image above. All buildings are shown before repair.
  • You will approach an area of the kingdom that has been destroyed by the evil witch and these areas are in black in white. As you clear away obstacles your Vikings will gather them into an inventory and use them again for various tasks. For example, you may gather 15 ore and then come across a job that requires 15 ore and then you will need to gather again.
  • Game timer – If you choose “Normal” or “Multiclick” modes you will play with a game timer. This time is located at the top left of the game screen. If you can complete the challenge before the timer hits the first line you will earn a three star expert rating. If you drop to the second line you will earn two gold stars and below the final line one gold star.
  • Inventory panel – Along the top left of the game screen is a running total of your materials gathered and available for use as well as your score next to the flag icon.
  • Quest panel – Along the top right is your quest panel for the level. You must complete all items listed to complete the level but you can do so in any order you wish.
  • Materials – Food, Ore, and gold are the primary resources. The ham leg is food, the wood pile is ore, and the gold pile is gold.
  • Misc. repair – You may have to repair roads, repair bridges, remove rocks, and chop down trees.
  • Upgrading Buildings – There will be several buildings you will need to repair and upgrade. Upgrades require material and usually these are found lying on the road or can be found on a magic stump. Once you can repair and then upgrade a building it will provide you with a resource at a rate of one every game minute unless you have the power up enabled which will double this amount for a brief time. Each time you upgrade a building another star will appear next to it and it will produce more with each upgrade. The types of buildings you will repair and upgrade include the following;
  • Your camp – This is the large house where your Vikings are standing when the game begins. You should ALWAYS repair this first because you will gain another Viking out of doing so and you will need him to help. In higher levels you could have three or more extra Vikings after upgrading your camp so be sure to do it first as soon as the game begins.
  • Druid’s Hut or Tent- When you repair this hut you will be able to get rid of wolves, spiders and magic flowers easily.
  • Workshops – These will give you various resources at a rate of one per minute or more when upgraded.
  • Farm – Once you repair and upgrade farms they will produce food for you every minute.
  • Mines – Once you repair a mine you can gather from it one item at a time until it is empty in which it will be shown as shut down.
  • There are two types of mines you can repair and use and these are ore mines and gold mines.
  • Warehouse – Once you repair a warehouse it can hold up to thirty of each type of resource for you. As you upgrade it may be able to hold more. It is always wise to repair and upgrade a warehouse as soon as you can.

Northern Tale

  • Magic Stump – Once you clear away an item on a stump you will notice a sparkling effect. You can place your cursor over this stump at any time and you will see that it produces materials for you at varying intervals. These are very helpful and you should keep your eye on the stumps at all times especially if you can’t move because you are short on materials.
  •  Evil Items to destroy – You will have various evil items to destroy based on your game level. The higher your level the more of these you will find on the board. There are multiple paths to get to them and you will have to choose the fastest.
  • Evil Root – This is shown as a type of dead tree with a bright red glow to it. Once you destroy this you restore peace to the land and you will instantly see all the color and foliage in the area return. Usually there are multiple evil roots per level.
  • Wolves – These can only be destroyed once you repair the Druid’s tent or hut.
  • Evil Stone – These are bright large rainbow colored stones scattered on the outskirts of the land. Destroying these will bring water and color to the land.
  • Evil Flowers – These nasty flowers can only be destroyed once you have built the druid hut.

Northern Tale
Quests

  • Quests are shown at the top right corner of your game screen. You can complete them in any order but you must complete all of them before the timer runs out (If in timer modes) or before the level is completed.
  • A quest will turn green in the list once it is completed.
  • Tip – Once you complete the final task on a quest all other game play is halted so if you want extra points and you have the time you may want to gather materials and upgrade buildings before you take the last step and complete a goal.

Northern Tale

Bonus control panel/Power ups

  • Along the bottom of the game screen you will see a bonus panel. This fills up as you clear items away and once one of the images highlight you can click on it to use as a spell for a short amount of time. If you click on the icon the spell begins and you can’t use anything past it.
  • If you wait until the entire bonus panel is lit you can use the more valuable spells at the end of it.
  • The spells on the bonus panel vary but include things such as adding another Viking for twenty seconds, causing all the magic stumps to produce instantly, having all production buildings double their yield for a short amount of time.
  • It is very wise to use these power ups as much as possible. Try to think ahead as to which one will serve you the best. If you are stuck and can’t do much because you are waiting on materials it doesn’t make sense to use the extra Viking but it would really help you out to double the material yield for a while.

Northern Tale

Scoring

  • The game shows you an individual score at the end of each level. You can earn one to three gold stars based on how fast you complete the level.
  • You are given the following scores;
  • Level score – These are the points you earn by clearing away and upgrading items.
  • Unused resources – These are points for resources you did not collect in order to complete the level.
  • Time remaining – You will earn a point bonus for the amount of time remaining when you complete the level.
  • Total score – This is the total of all other categories added together.
  • You may play any level over and can play as many times as you want until you earn all expert scores if you wish.

New Game Elements

Northern Tale

  • Rainmaker/Enchanted berries – This character is seen once in chapter two during level sixteen. Once you are able to clear the resources from the path you will have to pay in resources (food and gold) to have him play his rain summoning song for you. This will bring rain for several seconds and then a rainbow will appear. Next you will see three bushes of blue “enchanted berries” which can ward off all kinds of evil and will be very helpful. You will need these magic berries to get rid of evil in the current and future levels but in future levels you will only see the enchanted berries and will not have to activate the rainmaker again once you do so in level sixteen.
  • Herbalist – When you reach level twenty you will see an old lady at the bottom right of the scene. You will need to locate large mushrooms that are in the path. Once you locate all of the mushrooms she will grow an enchanted bush for you to help you finish the level. She is only seen once in chapter two.
  • Dry Tree – A dry tree stands vertically and you must knock it down so that it falls horizontally and becomes a bridge for you. You will need to remove all obstacles until you get to it then you will need to have the correct resources which are usually varying amounts of gold and food. Place your cursor over the dry tree to see what you need. Once you can move the dry tree it will fall down and your knights will be able to walk over the bridge it forms. In later levels there may be more than one dry tree in the scene.
  • Statues – The evil witch has shattered many statues in the kingdom. You will have to pay in resources to have them reassembled for various levels. Place your cursor over the statue to see what is needed in resources to fix it.
  • Ghosts – (Hooded character’s that hold their own head at times) Ghosts can be removed with food and gold in varying numbers which you can see by placing your cursor over the ghost. In addition to the resources you need to remove a ghost you must also have the “Exorcist’s hut” completed for the level. Tip – If you have ghosts in the level (most do in chapter two) look for the Exorcist hut and plan to build it as soon as possible. This can save you critical moments.
  • Skeletons – Skeletons can be found on the game board in varying numbers. Some levels have a goal of removing skeletons. You will need to find out which resources are required and you must have the “Exorcist hut” built before you can remove skeletons from the game.
  • Exorcist Hut – This is a small purple tent and you must have this completed before you can get rid of ghosts, dark knights and other evil entities in the game. In chapter two the exorcist huts are fairly close to the king’s camp so be sure to look for it right away and make it a priority to complete it so you can move the ghosts out of your path in a timely manner. You will also need the required resources to build the hut which usually consists of ore and gold.
  • Dark knight – The dark knight will show up in random areas as a guard. You will need varying amounts of gold and food in order to remove him as well as having the exorcist hut built. He is very tiny and easy to overlook so be sure to scan the game level and find the dark knight and plan to get rid of him. There are a few levels that have two dark knights in them which will be shown to you.
  • White Wolf – In level twenty six you will be introduced to the white wolf. The white wolf is a pet of Princess Autumn and his role changes as you level up. The first time you see the white wolf you will simply need a certain amount of food and he will move out of the path for you. As you level up instead of him moving off the path once, he will move off the path several times freeing only a small area for you to clear. When you see the white wolf for the first time he will be blocking a large area of the game board. Once you can get to him give him the food he requires then you will notice he walks to a new area of the scene freeing up some new resources for you to clear (color may appear where it was black and white previously) but then blocks an entirely new area of the board so you will have to place your cursor over him to see the new amount of food needed which increases each time. Note – If the white wolf moves and is standing up you will have to move him again. You will know he is out of the game once you see him lie down and go to sleep on the game board. When you begin the game look for the white wolf and plan how you wish to deal with him. There may be more than one in some levels. Watch for resource stumps that yield food and farms as you will need quite a bit of food to deal with a white wolf.

Northern Tale

  • Hungry trolls – Trolls are annoying in that they boil large cauldrons of mud porridge which causes a dark black smoke to cover parts of the scene. You will need to get to the troll and give it the required resources. Once you do he will stop cooking and the smoke will disappear revealing many more items you will need to remove from the scene. Usually there are statues behind the smoke that broken and require at least three different resources in large quantities to clear it away.

Chapter 3 – Levels 31 through 45

New Game Elements

  • The next fifteen levels in the game will result in your freeing the King’s youngest daughter “Winter” who has been frozen into an ice statue once you reach and complete level 45. You will see all of the same elements from the first two chapters in chapter three with the addition of several new elements which are described here for you.
  • Broken heart pieces – Princess Winter’s heart has been broken into pieces and you will need to collect them in order to free her in the final level. Sometimes the heart will move to a new location and other times it is hidden inside something that might require a key.
  • Spiders – Spiders will now be in your path and can only be removed once you have the druid tent constructed and have five foods and eight gold stacks.
  • Snowballs – These are first seen in level 32 and are the only element that requires you have two free Vikings to move it. Many levels will require that you move a large snowball out of the path several times each time with a cost of gold and food. Be sure you upgrade your Viking camp so that you have at least two available Vikings or use your plus one Viking for twenty seconds power up if available. Once the snowball has been turned into a snowman it is out of your way for good.
  • Merchant- The merchant is very helpful to your game and be sure to look around because there could be more than one in a level. Each merchant has a different amount of goods for trade or for sale. You will have to place your cursor over the merchant to see what they will offer. They may offer you gold for food or ore for gold. Be sure to check the merchants and use them often when you need something fast.
  • Sectional bridge repair – You will now see long bridges that are divided into sections you must repair one at a time. Usually these require food and ore to repair. You can place your cursor over the section to see what is required to repair it. Usually when you reach the end of these bridges you will be at the entrance of an ice cave or may have a creature to defeat.
  • Locked chest – Here you will need to find the key which requires building bridges and clearing down the icy entrances to several caves. Once you find the key click on the chest to retrieve the heart fragment.
  • Frozen path – You may have to turn ice into an ice stairway by clearing it section by section. Place your cursor over any frozen path to see how to change it to stairs for your Vikings to walk over.
  • Yeti -This is a huge snow monster that can only be removed once you have the druid tent constructed and will need food and gold to remove him. There can be multiple yetis in a level.
  • Gesta the evil witch – Gesta is much more involved in the final chapter of the game and appears frequently during levels to wreak havoc on your game. She may cause avalanches you have to clear away, place large rocks in your path, or will place evil creatures in random places on the path once you’ve already cleared it.
  • In the final level you will need to defeat Gesta and it will take a lot of materials to do so. You will need to upgrade all of your buildings fully in order to destroy her and beat the game.

Northern Tale

Level 45

Goals – Set Princess Winter free!

  • This is the final level in the game and you will have to work extra hard to set the princess free. You will see she is encased in ice in the center of the scene. It will take three different blasts to get her out of the ice so place your cursor over each section to see what you will need.
  • You will need to use all of your resource stumps, have all buildings built and fully upgraded and you will need to use the powerups each time they charge up. If you are in timed mode you cannot waste a second of time as the evil witch “Gesta” who is shown in the upper left corner of the game screen will be throwing surprises at you.
  • In the red circles located along the path (Circles without numbers) the evil witch will be randomly placing spiders, wolves, magic flowers, and Yeti’s in your path long after you have cleared an area giving you extra challenges. Once you clear an evil item she places in a spot no others will appear in that exact spot.
  • Once you clear everything away and you gather enough resources to take down the two sides of the ice statue Gesta will fly down in front of the ice statue and try to physically block you once again. You will need to make sure you have enough materials in stock to defeat her especially if you are playing in timed mode.
  • 1. You will need to clear a few resources first. Upgrade the Viking camp as soon as the game lets you. It is highly recommended you upgrade it twice in this level so you will have three active Vikings.
  • 2. Repair the exorcist’s tent – Even though you don’t see ghosts or spiders on the game screen Gesta will be throwing them on the path shortly so be sure to have this and the druid tent built right away.
  • 3. Repair the druid tent right away so you can destroy all beasts thrown on the board.
  • 4. Build the workshop and upgrade it fully as soon as you can.
  • 5. Clear the path downward and then build the gold mine. Take gold from it as much as possible until it collapses and try to hold on to the gold until you have another source secured such as a resource stump with gold.
  • 6. Make your way to the top of the scene and build the farm. You must upgrade the farm three times and use the extra Viking power up to make sure you have enough food resources to free the princess and defeat Gesta at the end of the game.
  • Merchant – You will be using the merchant frequently in this level. (Shown circled in purple above) Before you do, make sure you have everything else paid for in resources as you could get trapped with no way to get more and would need to start the level over again.
  • 7. At this point the evil witch Gesta (shown at the top left of the scene) will be throwing obstacles on the path for you to clear. Clear them away as soon as possible and keep the resources in stock.
  • 8. When you have enough resources remove one of the sides of the ice statue. Either one is fine as they have identical requirements.
  • 9. Take out the second side of the ice statue.
  • 10. Take out both dark knights at the bottom of the statue and then Gesta will fly down and stand in their place. You will need to gather a large number of materials to destroy Gesta and if you are in timed mode this will take quite a while.
  • The second you destroy her you will need to click on the center ice statue and free the princess.
  • You will be able to finish out the storyline in the snippet that follows.
