BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
GOLD YARN LOCATION: At the steps of fans leading down, fall to the fake green blocks near the bottom to deactivate the two fans above. When they’re off, run across to find more fake blocks to reach a lava block that’ll send the friend into the yarn.
The first tricky puzzle is located through the first portal. Wait for the holographic blocks to protect your friend from flying into the spikes. Move forward and use the lava to keep yourself safe.
In the next maze, be aware that blocks that reactivate will not kill you. They’ll stay off until you move out of the space. Use this trick to climb higher.
Near the end, use the wings to fly to the exit.
Cross the lift platforms to get by the orange water. Eventually, you’ll reach the right bottom corner. Crack open the green critter’s egg to get him walking – the goal here is to get the creature moving up and into the water above.
Move the floating block so that the critter will have a straight path walking straight up the walls and roof to stop by the water. With the thing’s mouth open, step in to fly over to the lava block.
Through the first portal, use the blocks as they appear to cross the line of fans. If you’re caught in the fans, you’ll fly into the spikes. Past these dangers, use the slide-kick to get under the buzzsaw.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Past the two buzzsaws and climbing the pole, jump right to the lava block and bounce into the shifting caution block above. When it’s gone, double-jump into the fake blocks above to grab the yarn.
The puzzles are getting tricky now. Set off the bomb blocks to the left of the generator until you get a holographic bridge. Jump up to the cloud blocks and push the floating block out of the laser’s path – now return to the first floating block and shut the holographic bridge down.
With the laser now active, it’ll activate a holographic generator below. The new blocks will block the spikes, letting you cross the fans.
Hit the button, and the caution blocks will begin to shift on or off. Jump back up to the beginning, then return to the caution block to the left. Drop down to continue.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: After climbing the shifting blocks, cross over onto the bomb blocks and jump into the portal. To get the yarn, jump back into the portal to zip straight up and grab it.
To get the first gem, stuck enticingly under three fans, just move left to the sludge blocks. Wall-jump upward to find the blocks above are fakes. Move right to shut down all three fans, making this gem very easy to grab.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Not too hard. After jumping through the portal, run between the two buzzsaws and hide by ducking on the clouds. Wait for the lower buzzsaw to move right, then drop down and run left through the clouds to get the yarn.
To get an slightly hidden gem, move the floating block out of the way of the buzzsaw. The saw will periodically land on the holographic generator, allowing you to run right and use the lava block to reach the gem.
Let’s get started! Climb the shifting blocks and run right, using the blocks as they appear to stay above or behind those killer beams.
After climbing the pole, jump into the safe lower area to the left between spikes. Then jump to another pole, and grab the boulder, dropping it off the generator. That frees another laser to shoot yet another generator, which will create a bridge forward.
Past this puzzle, you’ll find an orange spring between spikes. Wait for the vertical caution blocks to deactivate, and let the horizontal blocks appear before riding the orange spring.
Beware when you push the bomb blocks. Rocks will drop through the clouds – watch out and you’ll be fine.
At the last stretch, use the turret to rest a moment and time the last few jumps.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Don’t jump into the exit yet! Jump over and wait on the shifting block to the right. Drop down to grab the yarn, then double-jump to survive as the caution block reappears.
In the second area, don’t fall into the sludge! There’s no way to jump away from those buzzsaws. Stay on the shifting blocks to stay alive.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Climbing up the poles past the shifting block jumping puzzle, you’ll reach a large pool of water with a holographic block generator activated by a laser. Wait for the laser to activate, jump to the shifting block, wait for the vertical wall to drop and use the lava block to reach the yarn.
Through the shifting block maze, you’ll drop out onto some ice. Make sure you’re ducking as you land on the ice, a fan will push you past a low buzzsaw!
