Very Little Nightmares

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.
It’s right out in the open. You just need to take the correct path to reach it.
You can find it in a secret room that you access through a hole in the wall right at the beginning of the level.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This one is hidden in plain sight! You just need to climb up the ladders to reach it.
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.
You can find this out in the open near the end if you walk along the edges to the left.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
