Baba is You: Volcanic Cavern Walkthrough Guide and Solutions

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. 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 page will get you through all the levels in the Volcanic Cavern area. Click on the links for the other areas if this isn’t what you’re looking for. If you need help with levels I haven’t added yet, feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Volcanic Cavern:

Level 01 Tour:

Make BABA IS YOU using the BABA up on top. Then make KEKE IS BABA IS KEKE IS YOU. Head down past the fire. Use spacebar if you need to, to avoid being defeated. Push FLAG IS over to WIN to make FLAG IS WIN. Again, use spacebar to wait as needed. Then touch the flag to win.

Level 02 Peril at Every Turn:

This one’s tricky! Using one Baba, push PUSH above KEKE and then push it down twice so you can reach KEKE. Make sure not to let either Baba get destroyed. Push KEKE under BABA and then line up both Babas above IS YOU. Push down so you get KEKE IS YOU. Then, as Keke, head over and touch the flag to win.

Push the rock into BAT. BAT will swap with the key, making it land on the rock, turning it into the flag. Touch the flag to win.

Level 05 Torn Apart:

Push BABA IS GROUP right, past GROUP IS YOU. Push GROUP IS YOU down so GROUP is left of BABA. Push BABA IS GROUP left to make BABA IS YOU. Now, make ROCK IS GROUP and GROUP IS PUSH. Then push the two rocks into the lava to make a path to the flag. Touch the flag to win!

    For level 3, there is a simple trick: use the flag as elevator with the FLAG IS PULL statement. Place the flag at the left bottom so you can step on it after turning the skulls into grass. At the top, create a bridge with a FLAG and the words FLAG IS PULL so if you leave the elevator flag, you can step over this bridge to the end. Place the IS above the skull and the PUSH above this is. Now place a flag somewhere where you can reach it. Now create BABA IS FALL, go down past the fire, make SKULL IS GRASS, step into the flag elevator, go up to the FLAG IS PULL bridge and above PULL, push it downwards so that FLAG does not do anything. Now step on top of PUSH and push it downwards to create FLAG IS WIN. Now go to the flag that you can still reach and win.
