Very Little Nightmares: Complete Walkthrough Guide


Levels 1 – 3 | Levels 4 – 6 | Levels 7 – 9 | Levels 10 – 12 | Levels 13 – 15 | Levels 16 – 18 | Jack-in-the-Box Locations

Level 10: Video coming soon!

This is a stressful level, as you’re constantly running for your life. The garbage is alive and will kill you if it catches up to you.

First, open the dumpster lid. Then jump out and run like the dickens down the left path and onto the box. Keep making your way around to the box with the crank. Turn the crank so the broken part of the propeller is by the weighted box.

Then head up the ramp and turn the other crank to lower the hook down to the box. Then run like crazy around to the other side of the propeller. Climb onto the propeller and attach the hook to the box.

Make your way back up the ramp to the crank and use it to lift the box up. Then turn the propeller again so the undamaged side is below the box. Lower the box again so it’s resting on the propeller.

Turn the propeller again so that the broken side is by Six (you) and the box is up in the direction of the dumpster. Now, make your way around to that box and walk the plank.

Make your way to the cinderblock. Be careful here, because the garbage runs in circles around it. Time it right and run to the next ramp. You’re sort of safe now.

There’s six planks here that you can slide down, but only one will give you a soft landing. The others will kill you. So make sure to go down from the third to the left.

Head left and up the ladder. Push the trash can to the right. If you head along the edges to the left, you can find the jack-in-the-box. Otherwise, let’s continue with the trash cans. First, push one of them up and one of them down. Then push both of them right. Push the top one down and left so it hits the broken pipe that’s jutting out. Then push that same trash can down. Push the other can left against it and then through the gap and down the plank. Then follow it down, but make sure to take the third plank from the left again.

Now you have a really annoying part where you have to climb the wall and avoid the falling debris. The smaller pieces of trash warn you about the bigger pieces so you can move out of the way, but it’s still tricky to pull off. Once at the top, go through the door to complete Level 10.

Level 11: Video coming soon!

First, go through the crack in the wall on the lower level. Push the wooden plank down so you can see a clue. There are five rows, each with an X. Notice the position of each X. It goes: Middle, Left, Right, Right, Left.

Now, leave the room and go up the stair. Step on the three X’s in that order, making sure to stop back onto the non-button tiles in between each one. Now the door should open! Go through.

Climb onto the box and take the bent hanger. Go back downstairs. If you want to get the jack-in-the-box, go through the hole again and use the hanger to open the air vent. The jack-in-the-box is through there. Then, leave that room again and use the hanger to pull down the box in the corner. Take the fuse that falls out of it.

Head back upstairs. Replace the burnt out fuse with the new fuse. Then step on the button until you see a red scarf at the very edge of the clothesline, behind the grate.

Then, climb up the stack of sheets to the shelf and stretch out the scarf. Climb back down and step on the button until the scarf is above the radiator. Then climb onto the box again where you got the hanger and use the scarf to swing across to the top of the machine. Push the box down onto the button.

Climb down and back onto the box and wait for the scarf to come back around. Then grab it and hang onto it. It will automatically drop you onto the desk. Go through the air vent to complete Level 11.

Level 12: Video coming soon!

This is another level with a lot of potential death. First, climb up onto the ironing board. Push the iron down and plug it in, then run like crazy behind the second ironing board while he’s facing the other direction. You need to get through the door before he turns around again.

Go through the first laundry room. There’s nothing to do there yet, so continue through the next door to the second laundry room. Climb up the small gray shelves and through the air vent. Now you’re in the first laundry room on top of the machines.

This part is tricky. Stand on top of the darker machine and press the button to turn it on. Then quickly jump into the right laundry cart before the guy sees you. When he’s distracted with the machine, jump out and head left through the door and back to the room with the key.

Here, you can climb up the laundry tower and through the air vent to find a jack-in-the-box, but you need to do so before grabbing the key. When you’re ready, grab the key and head through the door again. Go through the first laundry room and into the second laundry room.

Here, the guy is walking back and forth to put laundry into machines. You need to wait until the second he turns his back on you and then make a run for it into the first open machine. Then, when he’s not looking, run into the second one. Ignore the third, because he’ll catch you in that one. Instead, just run straight for the door the second he’s behind you. Then unlock the door and go through to complete Level 12.

App unwrapper, you are one quick son of a gun! This game just came out! I often read parts of your amazing walkthroughs! Thanks so much! Okay here’s where I’m stuck.. you mentioned getting a hanger in this part. It’s the XO puzzle. I can’t figure out which order it goes in.. top to bottom, left to right. Stuck on this part. If you could give me a hint I’d so appreciate it., yes I have the piece from the wall where the gnome is painting and there’s a big red candle.
Thanks again

That was it! Thanks. Maybe the clue is right, but since the wires are tangled, you have to untangle to get that order. Idk

I’m stuck on level 13 in the steam room where the door opens in the ground and no matter how much I try I can’t make it to the hatch before the guy gets me. I’m blowing steam at him and then running to the door in the ground. Am I doing something wrong?

Hey! I am missing one achievement in iOS Game Center after finding all jack-in-the-boxes and completing the game. I have these: Step by step, Work in progress, No way back, The End is Near, It’s all over now, What’s in the box? Hobby getting out of hand, Connoisseur & Collector, Lots of knick-knacks, Obsessive completist, Nightmare Architects, Curiosity killed the child, Death Master. The one I am missing is the one after Nightmare Architects and before Curiosity killed the child.

Can you please tell me how to get this?

I’m having the exact same problem. Tapping on the bed doesn’t work, leaving the room & coming back doesn’t work. I closed & reopened the app: didn’t work. So frustrating.

You have to find all the gnomes. Toy box, the slide in the toy room, vase, picture, balloon, toilet, bathtub

Exactly. You probably missed the one in the toyroom slide and or box, they count as total on the bed along with the two in the two bathrooms, the one in the vase, the one behind the picture and the one on top of the wardrobe

I’m on level 10, trying to avoid the killer garbage. When you said “run like the dickens down the left path” do you mean MY left, or the little girl’s left? When I go down the path to MY left, I can get up on the box under the hook, but the only thing I can do from there is jump back down again… and get killed. When I go down the path to HER left… well, nothing happens except the aforementioned getting killed. I’ll keep trying, I’d just like to know which side to hammer away at. Thanks!

I can’t seem to run fast enough to not fall off the log towards after running through the gate and turning right towards the end of the game…??

Holy crow! How fast do you have to be to run from one ironing board to another in level 12? I have been killed about a thousand times. Is there a secret to it? I can’t get farther than right by the boxes.

I’m having a problem with level 18. I keep getting caught half way down the wall. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to climb faster or something?
