Very Little Nightmares: Secret Jack-in-the-Box Locations Guide

Very Little Nightmares
By: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe / Alike Studio

Very Little Nightmares is a mobile prequel to the popular console game Little Nightmares. It’s a horror-tinged puzzle adventure with some reflex-based sections thrown in. I have a walkthrough-in-progress for the game here. There are also secret hidden jack-in-the-boxes on each level that can be tricky to find at times. So this guide will help you if you’re missing a box. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Tip: Watch where the Nomes run off to. They often lead you to the jack-in-the-box.

Jack-in-the-Box Locations:

Level 1:

It’s right out in the open. You just need to take the correct path to reach it.

Level 2:

You can find it in a secret room that you access through a hole in the wall right at the beginning of the level.

Level 3:

You can find it in a secret room that you access through a hole in the wall on the second floor all the way to the left.

Level 4:

You can find it in a secret room that you access through a hole in the wall on the wooden shelf. It’s kind of hidden but next to the lantern.

Level 5:

You can find it in a secret room that you access through a hole in the wall on the the bottom floor after you fall through. It’s too dark to actually see the hole, but if you follow the Nomes, they’ll lead you there.

Level 6:

First, you need to open the box where the Nome is trapped. Then follow it back to the elevator. Now you can go through the open vent. Climb down the fence to get to the jack-in-the-box.

Level 7:

This one is fairly hard to miss. You can find it in a secret room that you access through a pretty big hole in the wall in the clock room.

Level 8:

This one is hidden in plain sight! You just need to climb up the ladders to reach it.

Level 9:

This one’s easy to miss. You access it through a hole in the wall while climbing on the pipe. It’s dark so you can’t see it so well.

Level 10:

You can find this out in the open near the end if you walk along the edges to the left.

Level 11:

Once you have the coat hanger, go through the crack in the wall again before using it to pull the box down. Use the coat hanger to open the grate and then climb through to find the jack-in-the-box.

Level 12:

You can only get the box when you return for the key. Before you grab the key, climb up the tall stack of laundry and crawl through the air vent. You’ll find a hidden room with the jack-in-the-box.

Level 13:

This one’s tricky. I’m not even sure why it works the way it does. But in the very first room, just stand in front of the grandfather clock and wait. After a little while, a secret door will open. Go through to find the jack-in-the-box.

Level 14:

Once you’ve finally gotten onto the bed and through the crack in the wall, don’t head up to the shelf yet. First, take the right path along the wall to the floor below. Find the crack in the wall to get to the jack-in-the-box.

Level 15:

After you fall through the floor, head left instead of right and through the hole in the wall to find the jack-in-the-box.

Level 16:

When you’re on the elevator/moving platform, take it all the way to the upper left area of the room. There’s a hole in the wall that leads to the jack-in-the-box.

Level 17:

This one is hidden inside the stairs. When you’re at the top of the final staircase, tap underneath it to walk over there. Then go through the door behind the stairs to find the jack-in-the-box.

Level 18:

As soon as you exit the cave, there’s another smaller cave before you climb down the ladder. The jack-in-the-box is in there.

And that’s all of them! You should have all the Jack-in-the-Boxes now.

But there’s one last thing to find! The hidden achievement! It’s on Level 3 near the very beginning. You need to crawl through an air vent to find a secret room. Hatch the egg to get the achievement “Nobody’s set foot in here.”

    Found the final box, right outside the cliff with the broken ladder is a small crack in the wall, so don’t go down the ladder until you check the wall

    The last Jack-In-The-Box (Level 18) is in a cave just after the long dark tunnel at the start. When you leave the tunnel, there is a crack in the rock ahead 🙂

      Yeah I just haven’t gotten to level 18 yet. 17 is annoying me so I keep pushing it off.

    How does one open the secret room in level 3

    1. AppUnwrapper

      When i went back at the end of the game, it was just open. I’m not sure what exactly triggers it. When I tried on my device with a game in progress, it was closed.

        I think you have to have found all of the jack in the boxes. I tried before finding my last one and it was closed. I went back after getting the last one and it was open.

      2. Riley

        How do you go back without having to restart the whole game?

      3. Riley

        Nevermind I’m dumb 😂 I got it
