Prologue

Underground Cemetery

  1. Head up the staircase of blocks until you reach two blocks. Push the blocks to the right to continue up the stage.
  2. Push the block to the right one space to the left to make a staircase. Remember, you can only move up one square at a time.
  3. Climb up the staircase until you reach another stop. Pull out the third block from the left and continue on, grabbing the coins you see as you go.
  4. Continue up until you see a third pile of coins. At this point, go to the far left and push the block to the right to grab the coins on the ledge.
  5. Continue all the way over to the right and pull out a white block to reach the ledge above you.
  6. Follow the coins up the stairs until you reach a series of bronze blocks with faces. These cannot be moved. Pull out the block directly in the middle to move up.
  7. Continue up the staircase and collect the coins on the path. Eventually you’ll find a path on the right that leads to more coins and a block that must be pushed to the left.
  8. Climb up to the stairs to the red block to pull the lever and finish the level.

First Day

  1. You’ll be treated to a series of cut-scenes. When you finally regain control of Vincent, you’ll find yourself sitting in the Stray Sheep bar alone. You’ll be able to check your text messages on your phone. Pick up the one from Katharine.
  2. You’ll be able to choose several different responses to her message. To cycle through the list of responses, delete everything you’ve written to see another option. You can choose to respond to however you want. Just know that, like all the other questions you’ll be given in the game, your answers will determine the way the story plays out.
  3. Hit the Diary function on your phone to save your game. Put your phone away when you want to move on with the game.

  4. Second Night: Prison of Despair

    Area 1

    1. Go to the very right and follow the path upwards. Be wary of cracked blocks, which break when you walk over them too many times.
    2. Continue up the path of stairs to the pillow. This will give you extra retries, which will be invaluable on your treacherous climb up the tower. Go for pillows when you can.
    3. Once you make it to the dark blocks, drop down to hang on the block beneath you. Move right along the edge to reach a block with a pile of coins.
    4. Continue up the path and keep edging over the piles of coins. Follow them and you’ll make it through the labyrinth.
    5. Follow the staircase up until you hear the ringing of the bell. Pull out all the blocks and continue up the staircase.
    6. Once you get to the wall of dark-faced blocks, pull out the movable blocks and make a platform to continue.
    7. Push two blocks all the way to the right to reach the coins and the checkpoint.
    8. Continue up the stairs and push the two blocks to the left make a bridge. Pull the lever and finish the floor.

    9. Landing: Floor 1

      1. You’ll arrive on a platform with a number of other sheep. To your left is a pedestal that allows you to save if you wish. You’ll find one of these every time you beat an area, so consider them a sort of break room.
      2. Talk to the sheep in the green vest and the sheep in the red vest in the upper left corner. They’ll give you helpful techniques to help you climb the tower. It’s wise to check in with the sheep on each landing. Usually they’ll have something interesting to say as well.
      3. When you’re ready to move on, head into the Confessional building in front of you. The person in the booth will ask you a personal question, which he asks you to answer honestly. This time, it’s about whether you think life begins or ends with marriage.
      4. You’ll notice when you answer the question a blue and pink meter will appear. This meter represents Vincent’s alignment towards Order and Chaos. When the scale tilts to the right, Vincent follows the path of Order. When it tilts to the left, he leans towards Chaos, and is more likely to . This meter will affect how story sequences play out.
      5. Area 2

        1. Move up the stairs ahead of you. Go three spaces to the right to follow the coins to another wall of immovable blocks.
        2. Drop down and edge along from here to find the Create-A-Block item, which lets you create a regular white block anywhere. Save it for now, as you’ll need it later.
        3. From there you can climb up the stairs. Avoid the sheep because they can block your path and move blocks, which can screw up your climbing. You can shove them away if you’re in front of them, although avoiding them is easy enough.
        4. Continue up the left path and pull out two left blocks and one above the very left that you just pulled out to make a small staircase.
        5. Afterwards, continue the path until you find a wall. Edge around the wall and climb the two steps to the coins above.
        6. Use the Create-A-Block item in order to complete the staircase and obtain the coins.
        7. Move through the stairs to the left and continue upwards. You’ll reach a flat level. Move all the way to the right and pull out the blocks to make a staircase. Pull three more blocks out on the far right to continue moving up.
        8. Push the dark block to the left and pull the block over it directly over it. Then pull the dark block back towards you to make a staircase and end the level.
        9. Fist of Grudge

          1. Here’s where you’ll face your first boss battle, which takes the form of two giant arms and a grisly fork capable of skewering you in one hit. To win this fight, you’ll need to get to the end door before the boss destroys the stage or manages to reach you.
          2. Fist of Grudge has two abilities: one is a basic stab and the other is a downward slash that turns all blocks it hits into the bronze dark blocks, which move more slowly than regular white blocks.
          3. Start by climbing up the stairs already set out for you. Continue all the way up to the right and follow the stairs until you see the piles of coins out of your reach.
          4. Pull up a block on the right to make a staircase. Collect the coins and the Bell power-up, which turns all blocks in the vicinity into white blocks. You can save this for when you’re in a pinch. Pull out a block on the left to make a staircase.
          5. Climb up the stairs. Make another staircase on the right in the same way as before to continue.
          6. Grab the create a block upgrade and immediately move three blocks down to the right and use to make a path up to another Bell power-up. From the bell, pull out the block to make a staircase and hit the checkpoint.
          7. Make a small L-staircase on the left side to move up. Push the block with the coins on top of it to the left and then grab the next two sets of coins. Pull this block under the block with the coins on it and climb up to get the coins.
          8. Repeat the process on the next level until the path brings you to the end door. Enter the door and escape. Congratulations! You’ve beaten your first boss.

          9. Second Day

            1. When you regain control of Vincent, you’ll find yourself in the bar with your buddies. There are a number of things to do here: you’ll want to cover everything before you head home.
            2. Talk to the other customers in the bar. You’ll recognize that a few of them look very similar to the sheep you met in the Nightmare World.
            3. Check your texts as well. The girl you met last night, Catharine has started texting you as well.
            4. Order some drinks when you get the chance. Getting drunk will make you move more quickly in the Nightmare World. Additionally, every time you get a drink you’ll get some trivia about the type of alcohol you’re drinking. You can check how much you’ve drank on the bottom left.

            5. Third Night: Torture Chamber

              Area 1

              1. Go to the left up the stairs, jump quickly over the bloodied block with spikes under it. This is a Trap Block. Jump over it quickly as not to get skewered.
              2. Pull out the leftmost block to make a stair. On the next ledge you’ll find a pile of coins on the edge of two spike blocks. Run to the coins and then run IMMEDIATELEY back. Alternatively you can just drop down once you’ve triggered the spike block and edge your way back to safety.

              5. On the next level pull the white block out to make a path. Push the block underneath the coins to the right. Drop down and edge over to the right to grab the Bible and the coins. You can use the Bible to remove all enemies, which is helpful since sheep often get in your way or move blocks in places you don’t want them to be.
              6. Head left to see a stairway of cracked blocks. Move quickly up the stairway, as the cracked blocks will break. You’ll soon see a sheep, but don’t bother using the Bible on him. The Trap Blocks will kill him as soon as he sees you. Pull out the block to your right to make a stairway to reach the checkpoint.
              7. Head up the path and dodge a spike block. Push the white block over the spike block to reach a space. Push the block to your left one space to access the coins and another stairway. Move up the stairway to the right to get coins, but be careful of the spike blocks.

                5. On the next ledge, move up on the staircase to the right. Pull out the block on your far right. Climb over this block and pull out the block directly above it. Push this block to the left to reach some coins. Use the Create-A-Block on your left to connect this pillar to the other.
                6. Climb up the stairs to grab the Bell. Push the block directly in front of you out so that it falls. Drop down to the left and do the same with the block under the Trap Block. The two blocks will sink and you can reach the coins.
                7. Go to the left of the Trap Block and you’ll see one block holding up an entire section. Push it out. Climb up the Trap Block to get to the coins. Go over the block you just created to reach the pillar on the left.

                9. Immoral Beast

                  1. Your second boss battle is against the disturbing Immoral Beast, but thankfully this fight is actually pretty simple. This thing likes to slow your progress by occasionally spewing a volley of hearts that will reverse your controls for a short time. You should also avoid blocks that glow red, as that means those blocks will be hit by the volley. Standing under blocks will also protect you from this attack.
                  2. This level starts out pretty simply. Pull out a block to your right to make a staircase over the dark blocks. Do this on the next platform as well to keep moving up. Rinse and repeat to reach some coins.
                  3. You’ll hit a platform with traps blocks. Run over them to disengage them and then pull out a white block to get to two dark blocks. Pull out one more block on top of these to keep moving up.
                  4. Pull out a block on the left side to reach the checkpoint. Pull out a block to reach the two dark blocks and some coins and continue going up.
                  5. You’ll reach a platform with two blocks missing in the middle. Pull them out and then edge your way over the dark blocks to climb up. Pull out a block on top of the middle blocks to reach either set of dark blocks.

                  7. Fourth Night: Inquisition

                    1. Head up and grab the Bible in front of you. Try to avoid the spear-wielding sheep and fry them with the Bible. There are no other enemies in this night besides the boss on the next stage.
                    2. When you reach an area of regular blocks pull out all four, and then three on the right, and so on. Follow the path upwards past the dark blocks.
                    3. You’ll reach another wall of white blocks. Pull out all four blocks on the bottom level to begin making a large staircase to your left. Pull out three blocks on the left, and then two, but make sure to pull the block on the right for the final step. If you pull the block to your left, you’ll collapse part of the pillar and lose valuable coins.
                    4. Head up the stairs to finish the level.


                    The Child

                    1. This boss moves quickly but only has one trick you need to worry about. Occasionally, the Child will fire a blast directly up the tower that will knock you down several floors if it hits you. Otherwise this boss isn’t too much trouble.

                    3. Note that you can go down the flight of stairs to your right to grab more coins, but make sure to do so quickly or the boss will crush you.
                    4. Make a platform of three blocks to start building a pyramid to the next level. On the next ledge, pull out a block to the left to make an L-shaped stair to reach the next floor.
                    5. Climb up the dark blocks to pass the checkpoint. Head upwards and to the left. Pull out a block to grab the Energy Drink, an extremely useful power-up that allows you to jump two blocks at a time.

                      1. Here you’ll face a deadly new kind of block known as the Ice Block. They move and connect just like normal blocks, but if you move over one you will slide all the way in one direction until you hit another kind of block or fall off.

                                      Eight Night: The Cathedral

                                      1. The battle against Catherine’s true form isn’t too tricky. Catharine’s main attack is a bolt of lightning, which you can easily predict by avoiding blocks that glow red. A block hit by this attack will become cracked. Other than that, she can smash you or Katherine with her claws if you take too long.
                                      2. The stage isn’t particularly difficult either: you’ll never have to do more than pull out single blocks or make small L-stairs. You’ll never encounter any dark blocks or bomb blocks, so you don’t have to worry about them either.
                                      3. However, In addition to climbing the tower yourself, you’ll need to guide Katherine as well. If she dies, you fail the level. Katherine will take the shortest route available up the tower, so all you need to do is make a path for her to follow. You can tell her to either stay put or follow you, the former of which is useful for keeping her away from lightning strikes.
                                      4. As you make your way upwards, try to keep Katherine within line of sight. If she falls too far behind, you might lose her. Remember that cracked blocks can only be jumped on twice before they break. Keep moving up and checking on Katherine’s progress. As long as you make sure to keep a path for her to follow, this level will be over before you know it.

Most of this walkthrough is useless. Catherine’s completely random generated dungeons, 90% of the dungeons listed here aren’t what most people will get.

@Yui:

The walkthrough is for Normal. If you are playing on Easy or Hardcore, the dungeons are different. Check your difficulty setting.

Exactly Toytbox. The Japanese Version and English version become a bit different when you get to 6.3. But it minor. Chapter 9 the blocks behind
the curtains are random but same basic layout on Normal. It makes sense
Easy would be different Layouts because well it suppose to be easy. They
can’t have same layout on Easy as for Normal. This is Normal and English
Version as you said when you play on Normal the layout is the same. This
person has no Idea what there talking about.

The layout is only different if you play on Easy or Hard.
If you play on Normal the Layout of the Stages will Follow
the Layout you have. Chapter 9 the curtain Blocks are random
but the layout is basically the same. 6-3 and up the Japanese version
it has minor differences with the English Version. I find the
North American version they added more blocks to help you with
it. I find NA version of the puzzles are not as hard.
