A History of the Phantom Vortex

Hello! ^.^

Today we are going to be talking about the Phantom Vortex.

The Phantom Vortex is a secret room that only appears during the Night of the Phantoms. You can access it by stepping on top of one of the many swirling purple portals located all throughout Jamaa.


The room itself is pretty empty, except for the cool little mini game you can play by clicking on the purple controller that hovers inside of a glowing pillar of light atop a platform near the top center of the room.

THAT was a long sentence.

Anywho, back to the gaming part of the vortex; this game is known as ''Phantoms!" Like I said earlier, since the vortex is only around for the Night of the Phantoms, that means this game is only playable during the celebration. The object of the game is for the player to protect their piece of candy from the sneaky phantoms by warding them off with a torch and guiding them to one of the blue traps. Once all of the phantoms for that level have been trapped, the player can now advance to the next level.

If you complete level five, you receive a special prize that is changed every single year. Here is a list of all of the prizes from 2010 'till now:


Tall Phantom Statue

Phantom Fountain

Heavy Phantom Statue

Phantom Scarecrow

Phantom Archway

Spooky Trapdoor

Wow, I can't believe it's been about six years since the first Phantom Vortex prize was released. That's insane!

Well, I hope you enjoyed reading this short history of the Phantom Vortex. The Phantom Vortex is one of my favorite things about the Night of the Phantoms! What's yours? :)

Have a good day!


  1. I'm not really a fan of the newer prizes. Whereas scarecrows and phantom fountains and those phantom statues work in any den, the newer prizes just don't work for me. I don't generally celebrate night of the phantoms (apart from getting some of the great items) so I never really use the newer prizes.

    Im such a grump lol


  2. I absolutely love Bitter Sweets! An adventure based solely on Candy?!?! YES FOR ME!

    I think I like the Phantom Fountain the most out of those. It looks so.. Modernly Geometrical..?
    A+ for those describing skills.

    Also, my friend wanted me to get her one of those Trapdoors so I went in the Phantom Vortex and I think I saw you and Cheer. You were Foxes in the sleeping position. Heh heh.

  3. I didn't know that's where the scarecrow came from

  4. The scarecrow and phantom scarecrow are in the pumpkin patch in Bitter Sweets.

  5. Ive always wanted the phantom statue of 2012 -penguin820
