This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough guide with help, hints, answers and solutions for the iOS and Android game Lara Croft GO by Square Enix. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section. You can see the outfits at the bottom. I will try to add relic locations if possible.

See my Lara Croft GO review here.

See my walkthrough for the expansion The Shard of Life.

See my walkthrough for the expansion the Mirror of Spirits.

Starting Guide/Tips:

Node: A node is what one space, step or move is called in this game.

Vases: Tap these with your finger whenever you see them. Lara’s location doesn’t matter for these — she doesn’t need to be near them. They hold relic pieces and gems. Each section of the game has a certain number. If you find them all, you unlock new outfits for Lara. If possible, I will try to show the locations for all of them.

Cracks: If you step on a crack, it will weaken the spot/node. If you (or an enemy) goes over the crack again, it will cave in. If the hole is horizontal, Lara or the enemy will fall through. If it’s vertical, it will cause Lara or the enemy to slide off it to the platform below (or die if there’s nothing below it).

Circular Saws: These move one node/spot at a time through a set path. You need to pay attention to the direction they’re moving to avoid them. They can also be used to kill enemies.

Snakes: These don’t move, but they attack if Lara faces them from one node/spot away. You need to walk up to them from either behind or the side. Lara will shoot the snake, then take its place. If you then land facing a snake, it will kill you. So avoid facing them. You can also use a spear to kill them from two nodes away.

Lizards: These start moving once Lara comes within two nodes/spots of their line of sight. Then then move one space at a time, following Lara’s path until you kill them or stun them. Like the snake, you need to shoot them from behind or the side. But usually a trap works better for these guys. Spears also work. In later levels, they’re often used to activate switches and traps.

Spiders: These guys move in a pre-determined pattern. If you learn their pattern, you can avoid them completely. Sometimes, they’re also needed alive to step on buttons to move platforms.

Pillars/Columns: These can be pushed by tapping the arrows that appear. Lara can hop from one to the other and even stack them on top of each other to reach new heights. They can also be used to crush enemies!

Boulders: These roll one spot at a time and crush anything that gets in their way. If something blocks a boulder, it will stop moving, even after the obstruction is moved. In that case, you would need to get it moving again by pushing it with a switch.

Torches: Walk up to a fire pit to light a torch. This is used to scare beasts. If you go in front of them with the torch, they won’t attack you, and if there’s room behind them, they’ll move back. You will often need to use this strategy to get them to move to buttons for you.

Arrows: These traps shoot arrows at anything in their way. They are usually activated by buttons or levers. You can hide behind a column or enemy to avoid getting hit by the arrows. They can also be used to kill off enemies.

Giant Snake (The Queen of Venom): She lands on the orange lines and squashes anything in her way, including Lara. If the snake is upright, ready to strike, you need to move once into her path and then right out of it so as not to get squashed. You usually have to use traps to hurt her.

Timed Levers: These are only seen near the end of the game. You pull the handle, something is activated, and then you usually have six moves to do what needs to be done before it’s deactivated.

There are a couple of achievements that I cannot find. Where can I stack three columns and where can I throw a spear more than five spaces.?

Bill

Yes, I found the spear achievement. It is that darn 3 columns that is driving me nuts.

How to get achievement when you need “slay the same creature 4 times in a row?”
