This is the walkthrough for Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister Awards: SPOILER!!! Remember you achieve awards for taking the time to do extra things in this game. If you are not a patient person, then complete the game and move on, but if you are like me and want to win every available award to feel a sense of accomplishment then this walkthrough will probably be helpful.
This is a very detailed walkthrough to achieve all 12 of the awards as follows (I read somewhere that if you pre-ordered you would receive an additional award slot but I pre-ordered and did not receive it – so sorry to those who need help with that 13th star…I cant help with that :(
#1.) Big Spender - You achieve this award by purchasing the box on the counter to the left of Pa, at Ma & Pa’s for $99.90 (See #4). I have found the quickest way to get the Pa Pennies is by continuously playing and winning level 4 of the Land Rush Video Game in the Ma & Pa’s Store, it costs 5 Pa Pennies to play. (If you ever run out of Pa Pennies, you can get additional ones by going around the farm house or other stops on the GPS map and clicking randomly around on the screen until you see a brief glimmer, click on the glimmer and you will receive a small amount of Pa Pennies. You can also get Pa Pennies by working on the Weather Balloon Circuit Boards for Chase in his garage at the Farm House. (See Picture Below for location of box)
#2.) Candy Dispenser – You achieve this award by offering everyone (Including Pa – who refuses your offer) each kind of candy. The candy is located on the right wall when you enter Ma & Pa’s Store (see picture below for location of candy). You will again need to earn a lot of Pa Pennies to purchase each kind of candy. You will need to give each kind of candy to each person so you will be purchasing 4 of each candy to achieve this award.
#3.) Couch Potato – Okay, so this one is a bit tricky. I have found that you have to hit this one early on, or it is a no go. You should watch at least 3 of each episode to earn this award.
#4.) Easter Egg – Confidential - So far I have found 3.
1.) FIRST EGG - You achieve this award by purchasing the box on the counter to the left of Pa, at Ma & Pa’s for $99.90, inside is the coin to the Jackalope Fight display, an Easter egg, and a really cool gadget globe thing. (See #1). I have found the quickest way to get the Pa Pennies is by continuously playing and winning level 4 of the Land Rush Video Game in the Ma & Pa’s Store, it costs 5 Pa Pennies to play. (If you ever run out of Pa Pennies, you can get additional ones by going around the farm house or other stops on the GPS map and clicking randomly around on the screen until you see a brief glimmer, click on the glimmer and you will receive a small amount of Pa Pennies. You can also get Pa Pennies by working on the Weather Balloon Circuit Boards for Chase in his garage at the Farm House. (See Picture on #1 for location of box) (See Below)
2.) SECOND EGG - You can achieve this award prior to return the divining stick. Go to the farmhouse and go to the empty Prairie Dog lot. Open your inventory and click on the divining rod, click on all the different holes that light up the rod and once you click 6 times an Easter Egg will appear, click on it to pick it up and click again to put it into your inventory. (See Below)
3.) THIRD EGG - You can achieve this award by putting a piece of cheese down in front of the springhouse door. Simply click on the grocery bag from your inventory (make sure you have a piece of cheese from the candy section in it) select the cheese and then click on the bottom of the springhouse door and it will place the cheese under the door. Go out of the screen drive to Ma & Pa’s and then come back when you do there will be an Easter egg waiting for you. Click on it to pick it up and click again to put it into your inventory. (See Below)
#5.) Glass Half Full – You can get either this award or Glass Half Empty by answering others requests positively or negatively. But be sure to choose one mood response or the other and stick with it to receive this award.
#6.) Homesteader – Staking claim to your lands – This one is earned by playing the Land Rush Video Game in Ma & Pa’s Museum. You must win all 4 levels to get this award. HINT: Beating level 4 is also the easiest way to make Pa Pennies.
#7.) Quiz Whiz - for acing the test -
The following are the answers to the trivia questions – you must get them all right the first time to receive this award.
1.) C. Tornado Warning
2.) C. 1,000
3.) D. F-Scale
4.) B. A Large Room
5.) A. Disaster Kit
6.) C. Downburst
7.) A. 1%
8.) D. Flying Debris
#8.) Sightseer – Repeated touring of the OK Plains
This one is a given, you need to REPEATEDLY go to all the different locations more than 3 times each to achieve this award.
#9.) Storm Spotter – for tracking down all the clouds
For Task #8 you will need to take Frosty and photograph all the different cloud types, the following are pictures of the different cloud types. HINT: I have found that it is easier to find the cumulus and it cirrus cloud on sunny days, and all the rest on stormy days, if that helps. 2nd HINT: You can find each kind of cloud all around or just keep driving into the same place over and over again and you can also get the different cloud formations. (As you notice, most of my pictures are from the Meadow (Top cloud on right side of GPS screen). The only cloud that has a set location is the final cloud Cirrostratus. It will only be found at the windmill, but you wont be able to find this formation until towards the end of the game with Frosty’s help.
Cirrostratus – this is the last one you will find, it wont be until towards the end of the game when you can find it. You will talk to Frosty and tell him that you are having a hard time finding the Cirrostratus and he will tell you that if you go to the windmill it is optimum conditions to find the cloud formation you are looking for.
#10.) Super Sleuth – Snooping in every corner
I have found that every corner not only means just that, but also means finding every Pa Penny. I have listed these at the following links.
HINT: There are some corners that are unlocked only after day 3 and day 4 so keep an eye out!
SPOILER: ALL PA PENNY LOCATIONS
SPOILER: ALL HIDDEN SPOTS
I have not included pictures of these areas, just a list. If you are in need of pictures, shoot me an email and I will do what I can to help. J
#11.) Sweet Tooth – For repeatedly sampling the candy. You get this award for eating every type of candy (including the cheese) TWICE!!! If you eat it all at once you will get sick and the screen goes green briefly but you bounce back quick and it does not effect the game at all.
#12.) Trivia Tamer – Once you get to the end of the game, Nancy will read her letter out loud. Right before the credits you will get one last trivia question. You get this award for answering the final trivia question correctly:
So far I have gotten 8 trivia questions. (See Below)
