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 13: Video coming soon!

If you want to get the Jack-in-the-Box here, just stand in front of the grandfather clock and wait for a bit until a little door opens. Then go through to find it.

Otherwise, head right through the doorway. Turn the first valve twice and then turn the second valve once to shut off all the water. Continue right and go through the doorway to the next room.

Climb up onto the box and then into the air vent. You’ll emerge back in the previous room. Push the cart full of cleaning supplies down. Then go through the vent again. Climb down and head through the door to the cart.

Push the cart left so it’s covering the leftmost hole. Then turn the right valve once to turn on the water. Turn the left valve three times. Then head along the lower track and through the door again.

Climb up and turn the big valve so that the top small valve is horizontal. Then pull the string so steam shoots from the pipe, pushing the screwdriver left. Then turn the big valve until the bottom small valve is horizontal. Pull the string and the screwdriver will get push down to the floor. Go pick it up.

This part is important. Go back up. Turn the big valve again so the second small valve is horizontal. Then use the screwdriver to open the panel to the right. Get ready to run here. Push the switch up, then quickly pull on the string to shoot steam at the scary dude, then run like hell to the escape hatch while he’s distracted. You have just enough time, so you have to be really fast. But that’s the end of Level 13!

Level 14: Video coming soon!

Go through the door to the next room. Head right and climb the plank so it now leads to the desk. Run over it to the desk and flip the switch to turn on the lights. Then grab the monkey’s string to get down.

Step on the button that controls the train and then get off when the train is by the dresser. Then climb up onto the dresser and then up the crates to the shelf. Push the box down and then slide down the slide. Hop onto the box and unhook the fence. Then get down and move the fence. But before going into the next room, head to the toy chest and pull out toys until you find the Nome hiding in there. The continue on.

You’re in the bedroom now. We have to find all the hidden Nomes. Climb up the drawers to the right and push the vase down to find one.

Go through the left doorway to the bathroom. Open all the toilets to find one Nome and one balloon. Then leave the room.

Climb up the drawers onto the shelf and through the air vent. Now you’re on the shelf in the bathroom. Pass the balloon and turn the valve to shut the water. Then grab the balloon and use it to get down.

Leave the bathroom and find the Nome high atop a closet to the left of the bed. Release the balloon to him to help him down.

Now enter the right doorway to another bathroom. Pick up the shower head and throw it into the tub. While here, notice the bottom painting is upside-down and also stuck that way. So climb up the drawers to the shelves up high and rotate all the paintings so the faces are upside-down. Climb back down and examine the solo painting to find another Nome.

Leave the bathroom and climb through the vent to the other bathroom. Turn the water back on and leave.

Go back to the bathroom with the bathtub in it and stand near the bottom right side so the Nome can jump onto your head. That’s all of them!

Head back to the bed and stand right in front of it. It will break and all the Nomes will scramble through the hole in the wall. Follow them.

For the jack-in-the-box, climb along the right side of the wall to the lower level and head left until you find a crack in the wall. Then go back and climb up the left side of the wall to the shelf and through the air vent. Now you’re on the shelf above the bed. Head left along it and through the air vent to complete Level 14.

Level 15: Video coming soon!

Slowly and carefully (no running!), walk across the plank and through the air vent to the next room.

Climb down and pull the blue-haired doll off the chair. Then climb onto the table and walk to the end of it. Get off and climb up the drawers. Climb the boxes up to the shelf above and walk along it to the right.

Here you have to swing on the chandeliers all the way to the other side. It’s annoying in portrait mode, but not impossible. Climb through the air vent to the next room.

Climb down the shelves and head right to find the TV plug. Unplug it and then quickly run to sit in the one empty wooden chair. Wait until the telekinesis guy leaves and then follow him out the door.

Push the food cart to the left and then fall through the floor where it was previously parked.

Head left and go through the hole in the wall for the jack-in-the-box. Then head right. And through the hole in the wall to complete Level 15.

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

Hey! I’m on level 13 in the steam room where it opens a door in the ground. I’m blowing steam at the guy when he walks in but I can’t ever make it to the hatch in time. Am I doing something wrong??

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

Hey thanks for all your walkthroughs! I’m stuck on level 15. When I move the food cart there is no hole for me to fall through and I’ve walked all over. Help!

On level 15 I am having trouble reaching the jack in a box I fell through the floorboards but can’t seem to go very far left and can’t see a hole to crawl through

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.

Hi. First of all, many thanks for your excellent guides. With that out of the way… 😉

Just installed, I’m on Level 2, after activating the lever i can’t sprint reliably, double tap doesn’t work as expected, I died several times. What am I doing wrong?

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?
