Sec. 1: About Glitches

The glitches in this guide will include regular glitches as well as game
freezing glitches. None of the glitches will alter the game or erase data, but
game freezing glitches will force you to turn off your DS system.
Easy, medium, and hard are just to show how difficult the glitches are
to perform. The secrets section is a section for easter eggs in the game as
well as other secrets. Enjoy.

Sec. 2: Useful Glitches
Ch.1: Easy Glitches

Easy win

If there is a starite on the other side of a closed door, you can drop a spring 
on it's side onto the starite to cause it to go through the door.

Epic Fail

If you finish a level once and replay it again, you can use the same objects 
each time. All you have to do is type a random prefix before the main word
 and it will summon and youíll be able to use it over and over again in the 
level. This is the biggest failure in the game, but itís also helpful at times.

Extra space

 If you write the word "fore room" you get three items, and it does not cost 
any points to your par.

Starite in Vending Machine

In action levels, if you summon a vending machine and handcuffs and attach the
cuffs to the vending machine, bring it over to the starite, and then attach the
starite to the handcuffs and fill the vending machine, you can empty the 
vending machine and the starite will come out and you will win the level. Note
that this glitch will only work if there is enough space to fit the vending
machine in the area of the starite.

Ch.2: Medium Glitches

Get Nuked Without Dying

If you summon a nuke and interact with it so as to make it start ticking,
grab the nuke with your stylus and right when it goes off, throw it away
and the screen will be bleached until you summon something else. You can kill
enemies with this technique, but be sure to throw it away before it kills you.

Rocket escalator

Turning an escalator upside-down turns it into a high-speed rocketing staircase
 which is useful for pushing things.

The tripwire

For tripwires, you can spawn a vehicle across the tripwire, so that part of 
it is on the side you are on, but the driverís seat is on the other side. 
Then, you can get in the vehicle, and then get back out to get past the 
tripwire without setting it off.

Sideways vehicle

If you summon any large vehicle and lay it on its side and get in and out 
of it, you may fall through the ground. If you use an ornithopter(Maybe other 
flying vehicles as well), you can fly inside the ground and emerge anywhere.

Ch.3: Hard Glitches

Magic carpet meets magic ground

Flying carpet- flies for a limited time. Fly up with it. When it falls, 
you might fall through the ground if you hit the ground fast enough. 
If not, you might be slightly in the ground- get off the flying carpet 
and you fall through. Works on the top-left title screen stage and 2 stages 
down from it.

Thatís huge

Quote "On the 6-11 Action stage, I made a rope, and attached it to the bottom 
of the green door. I then attached the other end of the rope to one of the 
apples, which then fell through the door, still attached to the rope. After 
one of the zebras ate the apple, the rope obtained strange properties, like 
suddenly exploding to 5000 times its normal size. I've managed to pull this 
off twice (the first time I actually beat the level using this glitch)."
End quote.

Sec. 3: Pointless(but fun)Glitches
Ch.4: Easy Glitches

Inside an Ice Block

If you put something like a crate (Or anything medium sized) into a fridge and
open the fridge while standing directly in front of it, the crate will pop out
of the fridge and you will be stuck inside of the ice block until you tap it
to get out or until it melts.

Shrink ray

If you summon a body of water and shrink it, the containment shrinks but the
body of water remains floating in the air. You will fall through the ground if
you try to get onto the body of water.

Disappearing Vending Machine

If you summon handcuffs and attach them to a vending machine, equip them to
yourself, and then try to put them inside the vending machine, the vending
machine will disappear.

Frozen on fire

If you summon a spider and drop it right above a fire, you won't be able to
move the spider and it will remain there until you exit.

Flying truck

If you summon a truck and put a person in it and tap the truck so as to run in 
to the truck bed continually, you will be shot into the sky with the truck and 
the screen will reset.

Evil tornado

If you summon a tornado above your head, it will either fly off screen or carry
 you with it off screen.

Fishing pole vault

Gluing two fishing rods together and making Maxwell equip it makes him pole 
vault all over the screen (The longer the tool, the higher you'll go).

The sinking garlic

Spawn a board, glue garlic on one end of it, and lay it vertical so that the 
garlic is on top, and the board will sink through the floor.

Creepily stuck

Put a Voodoo Doll and a Corpse in a Coffin. Interact with the Coffin so both 
items come out. The Voodoo Doll will be stuck in the Corpse for a little while.

Ch.5: Medium Glitches

Meteor and T-Rex

If you summon a meteor and drop it right above a T-Rex, the game will freeze.

Flying golf cart

If you spawn a golf cart and put either Maxwell or another avatar in to it and
flip it on either of its sides, it will continually flip back and forth and
fly up in to the sky. One of the golf cart's wheels may fall off, and if this
happens, the golf cart won't fly up as high, but will still flip back and

Fly away

Go inside a Cherry picker and make it go upside down. You and the Cherry picker
 will fly up out of bounds and die.


If you tap above Maxwell but slightly behind him he will start doing the 
running animation but running backwards.

Ch.6: Hard Glitches

Handcuffs + water=fail

If you are handcuffed to a steel/metal box and have an air tank/scuba gear on, 
then jump into water, you will fly up and out of the screen and die.

If you summon a baseball bat(it might not be the only object that will make the
 glitch work) and lay it on the ground and summon a match and drop it on the 
bat face down, the bat and match may fly straight up and off the screen.

The floating gnome

If you summon a gnome next to a fire, it will rarely float.

A bunch of stuff at once

Quote "Bear in mind I've only been able to do it once because the timing is a 
little difficult. Used the time machine and it sent me to the level with the 
king and the horse and the knight and some other stuff. The time machine is on 
what I'm assuming is a drawbridge. Any who, as I attempted to get back in, 
something broke the bridge and attacked the time machine. I had spawned some 
things so it's anybody's guess as to what attacked me. The time machine broke 
as I hit the water. When this happened Maxwell was swimming in the water and 
the screen continued to flash and the noise continued as well. The flashing 
stopped once I exited the water but the noise persisted until I quit the level."
End quote.

Sec. 4: Game Freezing Glitches(All of these glitches will force you to turn
off your DS system, but will not affect the game in any other way)

Stun Gun

If you use a stun gun on a corpse, the game will freeze.

Loituma Girl

If you summon Loituma girl and use earth magic on her, the game will freeze.

Ollar Store

If you are in the ollar store, tapping random spots may result in your game

Freezing Fish

If you spawn a Zebrafish when there is another fish on-screen, the game will
freeze. This also works with the Barracuda and the Swordfish, and probably
others as well.

Stuck in the Time Machine

If you spawn any hostile enemy, tame it, and go through a time machine with
it, the game will freeze. This may also work with a teleporter.


In the level editor, if you summon two beings that mount each other and 
program both to mount each other, when they meet up the game will freeze.
Note: This has only worked with acrobats.

Rope Freeze

If you connect two witches with a rope(Make sure you pick attach rather than
pick up) and tranform one of them with a magic wand, the game will freeze
when the other witch tries to eat them.

1-11 Freeze

In 1-11 action, if you summon a rock and place it on the switch, the game will
freeze and the top screen will look like you had nightvision goggles on.

Fishing Pole Glitch

If you attach any object to the hook on a fishing pole and then try to catch
something, the game will freeze.

Sec. 5: Secrets
Ch.7: Secrets and easter eggs

Time Machine

If you summon a time machine, you will be brought to one of three secret 
levels.The three are: A dinosaur level which has a bunch of dinosaurs in it, a 
medieval level that has a bunch of medieval people and horses in it, and a 
futuristic level which has aliens and martians in it. Although they all have a 
par screen,there is no way to complete the level, and it's basically just for 


Like the time machine, the teleporter will bring you to one of three secret
levels. One brings you to outer space and has cyborgs fighting aliens and
martians, and another has a vampire hunter in a dark cave. The best one, 
though, is the 5th Cell office, which has all of the developers in the game 
there. Like the time machine levels, there is no way to actually complete 
the levels.

Original Maxwell Avatar

Once you complete all of the challenge levels, the original Maxwell avatar
will be unlocked for use. If you want to see what he looks like beforehand,
all you have to do it summon Scribblenaut and you will be able to see what he
looks like.

Sec. 6: FAQ

Included will be some general questions about glitches.

What is the point of this guide?
The point of this guide is to make the game that much more fun by sharing
fun glitches that will help you experiment with the game. Also, the guide
is also to be helpful as it points out game freezing glitches so you can avoid
them if you'd like to.

Why won't a glitch work?

Some of the glitches may only happen by chance, but most take skill to
accomplish. If a glitch does not work, contact me and tell me which it is
and I'll remove it if necessary.

Why isn't this glitch/secret in the guide?

If a glitch/secret isn't in the guide, it is because I haven't found out about 
it yet. You can contact me about a glitch or secret that isn't in this guide, 
and I'll be sure to put it in if it works.

If I want a glitch/secret to be in the guide, how detailed should my 
explanation be?

If you want to tell me about a glitch, you don't have to be too detailed
about it if it's simple, although you may have to explain in some detail
if the glitch has to be precise.

Why didn't I get credit?
As you know, I give credit to everyone that helps me out, and if you aren't
included in the special thatnks section, please contact me and I'll be sure
to include you. Make sure you give me evidence that you found a glitch so I
can believe you.

Sec. 7: Special thanks

As you all know, barely any of the glitches and secrets were originally found 
by me, so Iím going to try to thank as many people as I can. If I forget 
someone, please tell me.
