Baba is You
By: Hempuli / Arvi Trikari
Baba is You is a ridiculously innovative puzzle game where you push words around like blocks and see how they interact with each other. Sadly, it’s not available on iOS yet, but it’s a testament to how much I’m enjoying it that I’m willing to play on my PC and Switch. I’ve been recording my playthrough, but I also started making straight walkthrough videos for those who don’t want to watch me figure things out. This is a work in progress, so please bear with me. If you need help with levels I haven’t added yet, feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.
Tips & Tricks:
– In Baba is You, you push words around as blocks to form different rules. Something always has to be YOU.
– To complete a level, you have to meet the requirements to WIN. This can mean a number of things, but in general, whatever is YOU has to either stand on the object that is WIN or the object that is YOU has to also be WIN. This likely won’t make sense until you see it in action.
– Don’t worry about mistakes. The game has an unlimited undo button.
– If you’re stuck on a level, try another and come back. I’ve found some bonus levels easier than regular levels. So no need to hit your head against one level for hours.
– Experiment with things. Each time you’re given a new word, like HAS, mess around and see what it does. You’re meant to learn through play, as the game will never explain anything.
– I also made a guide here that explains how all the words and rules work.
You can watch my video for the first eight levels here or continue below for my step-by-step guide.
Level 00 Baba is You:
This is easy. Just push your way through the rocks to the flag or go around everything to the flag.
01 Where Do I Go?:
Just push one of the blocks for WALL IS STOP to break up the sentence. Now you can go through walls. First, move the blocks to form FLAG IS WIN. Then, head onto the flag.
02 Now What Is This?:
You’re the wall here. So just break up the sentence FLAG IS STOP. Then push FLAG IS WIN together and touch any of the flags.
03 Out of Reach:
First, push one of the rocks into the water to create a gap in the water. Then just move ROCK down to make ROCK IS WIN. Head back up and touch the rock to complete the level.
04 Still Out of Reach:
Push the three rocks up. Then line them up horizontally with one of the words in SKULL IS DEFEAT and push them right to break up the sentence. Now you can reach the flag!
First, push BABA IS YOU to the left. Head down and push the rock out. Move LAVA to the left of IS and move PUSH to the right of IS to make LAVA IS PUSH. Then just push through the lava to the flag.
06 Off Limits:
First, break up the words WALL IS STOP. Then move WALL to push BABA out of the way and make WALL IS YOU. Now you can move the whole wall up to the flag and win!
07 Grass Yard:
You can walk through walls. So just push FLAG and WIN to the right and then up and maneuver them vertically around the IS that’s part of BABA IS YOU. Now you can touch the flag and win!
