BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
Take the right path using the pink sludge. Below, you’ll need to crack open the egg critter – wait on the holographic projector, it’ll be important soon.
As the creature steps onto the holographic blocks, jump off the generator to remove the bridge of clear blocks. This will drop your green friend onto the spikes, letting him activate another holographic generator further right.
On the holographic bridge, jump into the single orange fake block to grab a hidden gem.
Climbing up, you’ll enter a room with a rocket robot. Grab the floating block in the top left corner and place it on the caution button at the bottom-right.
Now take the right path, using the pink sludge blocks to climb with wall-jumps.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Past the spikes and lava, you’ll drop down into a line of ice blocks. Drop down the right side and wall-jump from the sludge to grab the yarn between two buzzsaw blades.
Continue down and right to find a rock block with three floating blocks scattered about. Use the three floating blocks to create steps, allowing you to throw the rock up one space at a time. At the top, drop the rock onto the caution button below the cloud.
With the second button pushed, the exit is now open.
Starting, jump to the fan block and shut it down, then grab the gem. But, to continue? You’ll need that fan on. Turn it on, set off the bomb block, then quickly drop down to the button. The fan will quickly push you through the shifting caution blocks.
To reach the secret level, move right and grab the helicopter power-up. Further right you’ll spot an empty space in the orange blocks right next to the wall. These are fake blocks – make sure you don’t touch the lava blocks or you’ll launch up right through the clouds and miss it.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Easily spotted behind shifting blocks through the portal between spikes. To solve this puzzle, move left to find a floating block between two fans. To get the fan onto the button, shut down the left fan, then move the floating block close to the left fan, with enough space for a friend to stand. Turn the fan back on, jump down onto the space right and grab the floating block. Grab it and you’ll lunge forward. Quickly release the floating block as it lands over the button – you’ll only have a split second! If it lands correctly, the way to the yarn will be clear.
The first jumping puzzles require lava blocks and wall-jumps from sludge blocks. Make sure you’ve got enough air before making the leap!
Landing at the top where you’ll find lines of ice blocks, drop down into the gray fake blocks to find a hidden gem.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Before jumping into the portal through the buzzsaw gauntlet in the top right corner of the level, simply double-jump to the yarn at the end of the path.
Most of the gems are located in the laser/ice maze. Take some time to explore to grab the extra gems before leaving the area.
Solve the first puzzle by standing on the buttons below, and wait for the buzzsaw to slide right. Get running, you’ll need the buzzsaw to touch the buttons to open the way right!
GOLD YARN LOCATION: After escaping the buzzsaw, climb the ceiling poles above the gem on the left. Wait for a gap in the cat’s boomerang throwing to jump to the yarn.
Underneath the conveyors, step into the purple blocks to discover they’re fakes. Free gem!
To get through the passage of lasers and spikes, you’ll need to collect to floating blocks to place on two generators. The first is found to the right. Jump onto the lava block and grab the floating block immediately to avoid death.
Above the passage o’ death itself, there are two cats guarding a second floating block.
To start, use the floating block and shifting blocks to throw the rock upward. Remember, you’ll need a shifting block activated or the rock will drop through.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: At the top of the steps, time breaking the bomb blocks and run right to wait for the holographic generator to activate. Just as it does, leap onto the holographic bridge to get to the yarn.
The rest of the level requires careful jumping, but offers no complicated puzzles.
