BattleBlock Theater Walkthrough & Gold Yarn Locations Guide
Table of Contents
Say hello to a new block. The rock blocks can be picked up like the floating blocks, but you can’t jump with them. Instead, you’ll have to throw them with the [B] button.
Jump onto the bomb blocks and break the row above to drop down all the rocks. Use them to create steps on the right.
To get across the black water, throw the rock into the portal. It’ll appear over a holographic block generator and make a bridge. Done!
Similarly, climb the poles and jump down to the right. Throw the rock onto the orange spring to reach the holographic block generator.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Travel to the top right corner (below the exit). You’ll see that rocks can drop through clouds, and they’ll settle in water. Make sure both rocks don’t drop into the water, you’ll need one to make a stepping stone to reach the gold yarn. Place one on the spikes, and the second rock one space left of the spiked platform.
In the corner with the golden yarn, check behind the cardboard tree to find a hidden gem.
At the end, make sure to slow down before sliding into the exit. There’s one last gem to grab.
Traveling right, you’ll find a portal. But, before jumping in, continue right to find a new item. The suicidal frogs stick to any surface and explore if you get close.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: In the top right corner, you’ll find the yarn. Dodge the cat’s frogs.
Along the left wall, you’ll need to wait for the bomb blocks to explode while dodging lasers. Luckily, a beam that’s stopping in place will now move further left or right. If a bomb blows while a laser is hitting it, that laser will not move once it is unobstructed.
The first puzzle is easy. Throw the rock to the left of the start onto the conveyor. It’ll drop through the cloud and move onto a holographic generator block.
Beware the bottom right corner. When you drop down by the pole, you’ll land on bomb blocks. Quickly run right and drop to the sign and grab the gem. If you aren’t fast, a holographic block generator will activate and block you off.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: After using the wing power-up to fly up, you’ll need to use the rock blocks that drop down from the portal to activate generators further left. Grab them and carry them – you’ll need to activate the bottom holographic block first, or you’ll block yourself off from the other gem rewards.
Take note! There are fake blocks to the right of the exit hiding one last gem.
Say hello to caution blocks. These blocks can be activated or deactivated to get around. Grab the floating block and place it on the button to turn off the purple caution blocks.
To cross the top path, you’ll need to grab the rock and throw it over the conveyor gaps until it reaches a green caution block button. If the rock falls into the gaps, it’ll return to the start.
There’s another fake block in the top left corner. Grab the gem before jumping down to the pink pig block-creature.
The pigs will automatically climb single spaces, but if you jump off it’ll be left behind. But, you can call pigs toward you by crying for help.
Pigs can run through spikes and water without a problem. Bring the pig down and across the water to find a wall of spike. Jump off the pig to get to the top.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: To get the gold yarn and a few extra gems, you’ll need to restart the level or start from where you can ride the pig into the spiked area with clouds in the center and two cats. Run on the spikes to the right to discover more fake blocks. You’ll drop down near the exit where you can easily run through the spikes and collect the yarn.
GOLD YARN LOCATION: Stay left to collect the yarn in the large bomb block spike puzzle.
Most of the gems can be found in the final challenge area. Watch the turrets and explore the cloudy zone to find the last few gems.
