Characteristics Plays on a Monument Valley map; slides while moving

The Totem is a playable secret mascot in Crossy Road. It is the deuteragonist in ustwo's game, Monument Valley, and was added to Crossy Road as part of the Monument Valley, Land Sliders and Shooty Skies Update.

Appearance[]

The Totem's appearance resembles its appearance in Monument Valley—a pole four yellow blocks high, with each block having some blue lines carved into them, and the topmost block featuring two additional large white circles on the sides with a dark-coloured dot in the middle of each one, resembling "eyes".

Characteristics[]

While playing as The Totem, the map will change to a Monument Valley-esque setting. Among other things, obstacles such as trees and boulders are replaced by monuments and ruins, trains become fast-moving blocks of concrete and rivers are now populated by floating pillars instead of logs. Pressure plates will also appear at random spots on the map—stepping onto one will raise or lower some of the ruins on the map. In addition, crows will randomly appear sitting on some of the obstacles and will start cawing repeatedly if the player gets within two steps' distance from them. Finally, the camera itself is reoriented such that everything is viewed at a 45-degree angle, mimicking the player's viewpoint in the actual Monument Valley game.

The Totem is sentient and retains some of the personality and characteristics its Monument Valley origin has. It slides along the ground and across spaced surfaces like lilypads and floating pillars, leaving a small dust trail as it slides, and occasionally hops on the spot if the player does not move it for a while. When it is hit by an enemy or falls into a river, it falls apart into its component blocks in a similar fashion to its origin's unfortunate predicament in Monument Valley: Forgotten Shores.

The Totem is a secret mascot and cannot be unlocked using the Prize Machine or with payment. To unlock it, the player must play as either Ida, A Crow, or the Storyteller which will randomly cause the top of the Totem to appear floating down a river. When this happens, the player must hop onto it like they would a floating log or lilypad. Once the run ends, The Totem is automatically unlocked when the player begins a new run.

Trivia[]

  • The Totem is unlocked in the same way as Hipster Whale and Nessie, requiring the player to jump onto them as they randomly appear floating down a river.
  • The Totem is one of a few characters in Crossy Road that do not jump when moving.
