BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
Climbing up the sludge further in the stage, make sure you move the floating block off the holographic generator.
Move the floating block onto the generator at the top of the screen. The lava block will launch you right into a monster – so watch out!
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Found above the exit. To get it, shut down the three fans below – then reactivate the left and center. Step from the right into the left fans, including the fans one space up. Quickly shift your friend right to avoid the buzzsaw, and you should have enough lift to get the yarn.
After jumping through the shifting blocks and reaching the ice blocks, you’ll find a buzzsaw sliding over four buttons. Touch the bomb block to give yourself a moment where the buttons are not pressed, allowing you to continue up.
Down into the area with the green-creature signs, crack open the egg below the floating blocks and stand on the holographic generator. Place all three floating blocks to cover the three clouds at the center.
The green creature will wait on the spikes, jump into it’s mouth to launch through the portal.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Double-jump after getting through the portal and crack open the egg. Move the floating block to let the creature out, then make a bridge to help the creature get up into spiked path above.
Stand on the button until the rocket lifts reach about the height of your double-jump.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Climbing through the sludge and buzzsaws, you’ll get to a room full of shifting blocks. Above the pink sludge, there’s a fan making this collectible tough. Jump from one of the higher shifting blocks to the lava surrounded by fake blocks.
The final puzzle requires careful timing. Start from the right-most bomb block and drop down, run across, and you’ll have just enough time to double-jump and catch the new holographic bridge.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Collectible from the start. Jump into the portal directly below the spikes, found to the right, and set off the bomb block. Wait for the portals to be covered by holograms before running across the portal again.
Through the deadly shifting block platforming challenge, you’ll come across several piled up rocks. Throw them onto the bomb blocks, but avoid touching them until you absolutely have to. Get one rock to the top and drop it onto the caution button.
This is it, the final time-trial. Wait for the holographic blocks to appear, then jump onto the pig. Jump over the spikes, and call the pig over to continue riding it.
There’s a portal in the bottom right corner. Wait for the laser to stop and run the pig into the portal – then double-jump off.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Jumping off the pig, you’ll reach a trap gauntlet. Make single jumps over each buzzsaw, if you have enough momentum you can duck and slide under the saws.
Grabbing the jetpack, ride it up, bounce left, then launch up again. Bounce right, and before dropping onto the ice below the bomb block, duck!
Part 2. Draw the boat over and sail left. Climb up, and move through the fans left.
Run through the gauntlet of traps, but things don’t get really difficult until the last room. Ride the conveyor into a room with two pointer signs.
Here, jump right through the shifting blocks to the right, and climb up and jump onto the bomb block. From the bomb, leap into the lava blocks to bounce up into a portal.
Jump onto the laser, then time your jump to get up through the shifting block. Double-jump left to the orange spring so you bounce into the lava, launching you toward the exit.
As you’re flung by the lava, hold left to avoid running into the lava on the right.
Congratulations! You’ve saved your friends!
