BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
Look behind the black cardboard tree just to the right as the level starts.
Wall-jump up the pink sludge, and you’ll notice a tricky gem above water to your right. Stand on the clouds, then drop down so you’ll still have two jumps. Land on the lava to escape safely.
Before entering the portal on the left, climb the pole on the right and move the floating block right, allowing the laser to shoot down onto a generator.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: To reach this tricky yarn, you’ll need to go down and around the spikes. Use the pink sludge to climb up and up, using the poles to finally reach the yarn by making a careful wall-jump from the lava block.
The first deadly trap is a repeat of the trap from 6-4. Beware the lava blocks!
GOLD YARN LOCATION: After crossing the water with the alternating holographic bridges, you’ll reach a precarious platforming area with poles, spikes, and water. Climb up early on to get over the alternating holographic blocks. Jump onto the blocks, then use the lava block and double-jump.
Past the maze, you’ll need to grab the floating block and place it on the button. Don’t forget to shut off the fan when you need to.
Moving the floating block on the right will drop you and small army of cats into a deadly arena. One of the cats has a gem, and to exit the ice-zone you’ll need to grab the rock and place it on the button underneath that annoying rocket robot.
Through the arena, crack open the egg so the green creature places itself in position on the spikes above. Next, you’ll need to free that fuzzy platform to reach the green animal-friend. Set off the bombs as the platform floats near.
Jump into the creature’s mouth to get across the water.
Jump down to another rocket robot guarding a hallway of portals, don’t yet jump into a blue circle. Move the floating block onto the generator, then set off the line of bomb blocks directly above the generator.
Once the entire series of bomb blocks explode, a rock will fall into the water. Now you can safely jump into the portal on the ceiling.
To get rid of the cat ahead, run through the cloud ahead and push the floating block left. The suicide frogs will now turn against their master. Now you can grab the gem and continue forward.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Jump past the exit once the grenade-throwing cat is dead. Climb the poles, and narrowly grab the top pole before the fans blow you down.
Set off the bombs and wait for the wall to disappear before using the lava block to cross over. Jump as you land on the ice, it’s very easy to drop into the water here.
Through the portal ahead, it’s time for yet another buzzsaw chase. Jump over the spikes with single leaps to eventually reach a locked-down arena. Move the floating blocks to form steps leading to the black caution block. Throw the rock up to the button to deactivate the shifting blocks in this area.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Past the rocket robot, drop down and grapple the poles. Use the lava blocks to climb up to the yarn – make sure yo wait for the buzzsaw to move left.
Not another time trial! Jump over the saw to the right and then jump over the bomb block over the water. Use the lava block, ride the fans, and double-jump right to drop into the fan on the wall to launch you left.
Make sure to double-jump again, your momentum will drop you down into the pit!
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Dropping down into the room guarded by a rocket robot, climb up and push the boat into the water. Then ride the boat into the portal – as you fall, jump out to grab the yarn.
To get by the buzz saw, jump into the lava block to bound below the blades as they sweep across.
Passing by the exit through the hole, wall-jump to the lava block. Just as you’re launched, duck to slide under the blade and under the exit.
Time for part 2. Climb up the dangerous area and dodge the rockets. Use the lava blocks on the right to climb higher, then use the ceiling poles to get into the portal on the ceiling. Or jump off the robot’s head.
Falling down the hole with fans and spikes, hold right. Landing on the bombs, quickly switch to left.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: At the bottom right corner, grab a rock and drop into the alcove of lava blocks.
Get one of the rocks into the button on the far end. Hold the rock as a shield to protect yourself from lasers. The rest is just tricky platforming, so get to it.
