BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
Getting closer to some answers, each level will just get tougher from here. You’ll see that almost all the gems are located in a blocked off area to the left.
Wait for the fans to shut off before making a jump. Jump into the pit below, and move the boat to the right side before continuing. You’ll need the boat in place to get the Gold Yarn later.
Further right, grab the rock as it pops up, and toss it onto the orange spring against the right wall. Leap over to the left and throw the rock into the portal once it’s on the conveyor.
With the rock through the portal, follow it and push it into the caution block under the button to clear the first barrier.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Return to the pit to the right of the water/fan trap near the entrance. Climb down from the poles and use the boat – previously pushed to the right edge – to sail into the yarn.
Continuing down, you’ll find a danger-area with a cat throwing grenades. Push the boat left onto cat to kill it, and deliver the boat down through the clouds. Use the boat at the bottom level.
After using the boat, you’ll find an all-new enemy. The cat hover vehicle dumps grenades and protects a large group of gems. The hovering battle-egg can be destroyed, it just takes plenty of jump-attacks.
In the same room, move the floating blocks off the generators to dump the rock into the portal at the bottom of the hole.
To get the last rock into position, climb up into the rocket robot area, grab the rock, and throw it onto the higher conveyor while riding a rocket lift.
Return to the barrier room, place the rocks onto the buttons, and grab the gems. Now you’re home free to get into the exit.
Jump through the clouds and run left to find a horse/pig creature down on the fans. Use the lava blocks to bounce down and land on the pig, so you can ride out.
Use the pig to ride through the spikes and reach the portal that was previously unreachable.
Once the caution button is pressed, return to the spike-portal and check out the fake blocks to the left of the rock after it’s dropped through the shifting caution blocks.
Grab the pig and ride it right using the holographic generator bridge over the water to jump through the spikes.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Found right above the exit door, use the fan on the right to speed over the ice blocks and double-jump over the water to reach the yarn. If you miss, you can also jump up from the sludge onto the spikes. If you’re very careful, you can land on the very edge of the spike block without activating it.
To get over the cloud right at the start, launch with the lava block and double-jump.
The gimmick of this level is that you’ll need to replay the entire thing with shifting blocks. After passing through once, you’ll be able to deactivate the black caution blocks.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: On the second level pass, double jump from the last ceiling pole after getting through the section with purple water, turrets, and shifting white blocks.
Take the lower right path over the shifting blocks and fans pushing up into spikes. Down the path, slide down the sludge and wait for the blocks to activate. Prepare to jump into the lava block, but don’t jump until the shifting blocks disappear.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Across the pool of orange water, jump over the spikes and brush against the lava blocks. Aim for the brighter brown blocks, these are fakes! Falling down, the fan will push you into the small alcove with the yarn.
Next, take the upper right path. All you need to do is move the floating block out of the rock’s path.
Take the left path, and make sure to slide under the buzzsaw at the end of the road.
Ahead, crack open the green creature’s egg. You’ll want to clear his path to create holographic bridges as you go. Hit the first bomb block above the egg, then rush to the bomb block to the left so you can get onto those hologram blocks before they appear.
At the end of the path, move the last floating block out of the rock’s trajectory to create a bridge to the exit.
This is another level you’ll need to pass through twice.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: After dealing with the cats and pushing the floating block onto the caution button, simply use the lava blocks to your left to reach lots of gems plus an extra yarn.
Now it’s just a matter of backtracking to the entrance to get to the exit.
Past the floor of lava blocks, enter the newly opened alcove where the sliding buzzsaw appeared to find fake blocks leading to a hidden gem.
