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 hereΓÇÖs where IΓÇÖm stuck.. you mentioned getting a hanger in this part. ItΓÇÖs the XO puzzle. I canΓÇÖt figure out which order it goes in.. top to bottom, left to right. Stuck on this part. If you could give me a hint IΓÇÖd so appreciate it., yes I have the piece from the wall where the gnome is painting and thereΓÇÖs a big red candle.
    Thanks again

    1. AppUnwrapper

      IΓÇÖll eventually add a video, but basically, notice that the XΓÇÖs are either left, middle or right. There are five of them. They go: Middle, Left, Right, Right, Left (I have it memorized because I restarted that level soooo many times). So just step on the X buttons in that order, making sure that you step back onto a non-button tile between each one.

    Hi Appunwrapper! I am stuck in level 16, IΓÇÖm in the room with the piano. I need to get to the moving platform. If you could help me I would greatly appreciate it your awesome!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Ok, so you need to copy the sheet music on the wall, which is telling. You to run from the left side of the piano to the right. But you canΓÇÖt step on any other keys. So to do that, climb onto the wooden part of the piano, go to the left side, then step onto the keys and go all the way right. That should reveal a ladder.

      1. Zak

        Please help IΓÇÖm on level 13 when I finally pull the lever down to open a little get away the floating weird man comes and I donΓÇÖt know what to do.

        1. Daniel Vignassi

          If it where I think you are you need to get the stream right place where it spray in front of the door then you pull the lever and the guy come in the doorway grab the string and it stream hits him and then run to the opening quick you can grab the string twice before he kill you on the third one hopefully this helps

  3. Charlie

    How do you get the coat hanger?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      ItΓÇÖs just hanging there once you get through that door upstairs.

  4. Noe

    hey app unwrapper! i beat the entire game already i just canΓÇÖt find the jack in the box in level 10, have you found it yet??

  5. Mike

    So confused on 17. Been stuck for a while, just keep getting killed by the chandelier. Any idea what to do?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You have to just run out the door, but it apparently has to be from a specific spot. It’s kind of dumb and I only really got it by accident. But things only get worse fr there. 😞

  6. Gabi

    I used the hanger to pull the box down but then it got stuck on the side. How do I get the scarf down?

  7. Alex

    What do I do with electric box room? I set it up in the way it describes behind the door and I always get electrocuted.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I think the clue is wrong because I flipped the switches differently before seeing the clue and it worked. Try doing ON ON OFF ON.

      1. AppUnwrapper

        Actually that seemed to be a glitch, too. IΓÇÖm not sure what I did to get it to shut off. Hold on.

          1. Alex

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

            1. AppUnwrapper

              Oh didnΓÇÖt think of that! That could be it!

            2. AppUnwrapper

              I guess thatΓÇÖs why the door is hiding half of it.

            3. AppUnwrapper

              Ok yeah the red wires are OFF and the yellow/green wires are ON, so that makes it easier. CanΓÇÖt believe I missed that. Updated my guide to explain it.

  8. Lexi

    Hey! IΓÇÖm on level 13 in the steam room where it opens a door in the ground. IΓÇÖm blowing steam at the guy when he walks in but I canΓÇÖt ever make it to the hatch in time. Am I doing something wrong??

  9. Lexie

    IΓÇÖm stuck on level 13 in the steam room where the door opens in the ground and no matter how much I try I canΓÇÖt make it to the hatch before the guy gets me. IΓÇÖm blowing steam at him and then running to the door in the ground. Am I doing something wrong?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      No, thatΓÇÖs all you need to do. If you got the correct pipe blowing steam, he should be distracted just long enough for you to run to the hatch.

  10. Thomas

    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?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Sorry, I donΓÇÖt have that either. IΓÇÖm guessing itΓÇÖs either a ridiculous number of deaths, or maybe dying in every possible way? Or maybe completing the game with no deaths? That seems insane. No idea what else it could be ΓÇö thatΓÇÖs the problem with hidden achievements. :/

      1. Matt

        What is the hidden achievement? I still need to get it. Thanks.

        1. AppUnwrapper

          ItΓÇÖs found near the beginning of the third level, but you have to complete the game to access it.

          1. killassan

            I have complete the game and done again 2nde and 3rde level but i didn’t find anything to complete this last hidden achievement 🙁 please help

            1. Katelin

              ItΓÇÖs a secret room you can only access after you complete the game. ItΓÇÖs level 3 under the first security eye.

  11. Platinumlade

    I’m stuck on 12

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Which part? I explained how to get through it, but if you tell me which part is giving you trouble I can try to help.

  12. Eliyana

    IΓÇÖm on lv 3 and I have no idea what to do.. can you help me ? Please?

  13. Eliyana

    IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m on lv 3 and I have no idea what to do… can u help me? Please?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I have both a video and a text explanation, but if you tell me where youΓÇÖre stuck, IΓÇÖll try to help.

  14. Mitch

    Is there anything more to do on level fourteen when you push the cart over? Just standing in the spot doesnΓÇÖt seem to work. Glitch maybe?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Not sure which cart youΓÇÖre referring to. Are you sure youΓÇÖre on level 14?

  15. Zoid

    Well 17 is sooooooo annoying… Just canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t get past the chandelier and no idea what to do╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£Γòó

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Try positioning yourself differently near the door each time (left, middle, right) and then just run for it. It only gets worse from there!

    2. Daniel Vignassi

      After you get to bottom of the stair just run as fast as you can and you miss the chandelier

  16. Tinyfoe

    Im having trouble on Lvl 14 I got all the nomes but the bed isnΓÇÖt breaking I got the nome in the toilet, the nome IΓÇÖm the vase, the balloon nome, the painting nome, and the bathtub nome but when I stand in front of the bed its not breaking

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Not sure why that is. You tried tapping on the bed? It could be a bug.

      1. Shoppingamc

        I was having that problem too. you found 7 gnomes. You have to drop through the twisty slide in the bedroom.

        1. sophia

          Which twisty slide?

    2. Katie

      IΓÇÖm having the exact same problem. Tapping on the bed doesnΓÇÖt work, leaving the room & coming back doesnΓÇÖt work. I closed & reopened the app: didnΓÇÖt work. So frustrating.

    3. Azdon

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

      1. Ellie

        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

        1. ShadowLinch

          I had the same problem ellie thanks for the hint, in the video it does not show the name of the toy box in the room

  17. Vito

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

    1. AppUnwrapper

      ItΓÇÖs a loose plank. You wonΓÇÖt really notice its loose until you walk on it.

  18. Autumn

    On level 15 I am having trouble reaching the jack in a box I fell through the floorboards but canΓÇÖt seem to go very far left and canΓÇÖt see a hole to crawl through

  19. Nancy batts

    IΓÇÖm stuck on level 3 in the last spot light.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Did you do everything upstairs that you were supposed to?

  20. Samantha Ramirez

    IΓÇÖve gotten all of the bones and am standing in front of the bed how long until it breaks?

  21. Spicy ham

    IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m on level 10, trying to avoid the killer garbage. When you said Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├║run like the dickens down the left pathΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├æ do you mean MY left, or the little girlΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗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. IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ll keep trying, IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗d just like to know which side to hammer away at. Thanks!

  22. Dell

    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…??

  23. Mardou

    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 canΓÇÖt get farther than right by the boxes.

  24. Valentin Stanescu

    Hi. First of all, many thanks for your excellent guides. With that out of the way… ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£┬╜

    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?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      It just doesnΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t have very good controls. 🙁

      1. Valentin Stanescu

        Thanks. 🙂

      2. Lauz

        Hi, where and what level is the grandfather clock in? Thank you

  25. Felicity

    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?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      No itΓÇÖs just a really annoying part.

  26. Katrina

    Hi, can you please tell me the trick to crossing that river on the thin log!!(just after the electric fence etc) I get half way across and then she just falls!

  27. Katrina
