Braid Walkthrough header

We've just finished a complete walkthrough (with images) for Braid!! Be warned: contains major spoilers, so proceed only as a last resort.

World 2

Three easy pieces
  1. This level is very simple. The first puzzle piece is under the bridge you walk over, you can't miss it.

  2. The next piece you will need to jump on the goomba to get to it.

  3. For the third piece in this level you'll have to jump on two goombas in a row to get the height you need. If you fail more goombas will pop out of the cannon.

The cloud Bridge

  1. Start by grabbing the key to the right and unlocking the door. Then use the clouds to get the puzzle piece and move on.

  2. For the next piece you will have to jump across the clouds to get to the cannon.

  3. You can not get the other two pieces in this level just yet. We will come back to those.

Hunt

  1. This one is very simple, just kill all the goombas to get to the puzzle piece. Use the goomba on the lower right as a way to get to the higher areas.

Jump.jpg
Leap of Faith

  1. First use the platform over the pit to help a goomba get across. then jump on that goomba to get the puzzle piece over the door.

  2. Time your jump over the pit so you use the goomba that shoots out of the cannon to propel you upwards. If you miss just use shift to go back in time, and try again.

  3. Once you leap down the pit move to the left to land on the platform that has a puzzle piece on it. If you miss simply go back in time and try again.

  4. The next puzzle piece is on your way up the ladder, you can't miss it.

  5. Now go back to the cloud bridge level.

The cloud bridge

  1. Go to where the puzzle frame is near the door and assemble the puzzle as much as you can. You'll notice there is a platform in the puzzle, you can use this to get across the gap above to get a puzzle piece. Position the puzzle so the platform part is in the middle on the top.. Don't kill the goomba yet.

  2. Now move the platform so it lines up with the platform on the left. Once the goomba is on the puzzle's platform move it down to the ground so the goomba walks on the ground to the right, and jump on him to get the piece over the door.

  3. Assemble the puzzle and exit the world. On to world 3!

World 3

The Pit
  1. Items that glow green arent affected by the flow of time. Jump down the pit, grab the key, and go back in time to before you jumped down the pit. Use the key on the door and move on.

There and Back Again

  1. Move to the top of the level and grab the key, then go back in time and put the key in the door before the wall comes down. Grab the puzzle piece and exit.

Phase

  1. To make it easier to get across the clouds you can change the flow of time by holding shift and using the up or down arrow keys. If you set the flow of time to 0X, then the green clouds will move and the others won't, so you can make the platforms more accessible to yourself. Use this method to get to the first puzzle piece above the cannon.

  2. Use this same method to get the puzzle piece above the second cannon as well.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet

  1. Move the platform across the pit and then go back in time so the goomba will land on the platform and walk across. He will get the key from the tiny space for you. Grab the first puzzle piece and move on.

  2. Move the second platform over the pit, go stand above the puzzle piece and wait a second. Then go back down and move the platform back to its original position. Go backwards in time to when you were over the puzzle piece then let time flow again. You will drop down and get the puzzle piece, then go back in time again to where you can move the platform across the pit. Now proceed to the exit.

Tight Channels

  1. You'll have to carefully guide the goomba across the platform by moving time back slowly so he stays in between the fireballs. Then jump on him to reach the first puzzle piece.

  2. Once you move on and deal with the rabbits go to where the third cannon is. Alter time so that the cannon shoots a fireball at the second cannons fireball. May take a few tries to get right. It will only shoot every other fireball.

  3. Once you do that you'll have enough time between shots to get across the platform by the door and get the last puzzle piece.

Irreversible

  1. For the beginning of this level you can not reverse time. or you wont be able to get the first puzzle piece. Once the platform is over the pit you can reverse time safely. Watch out for the bunny.

  2. Once you have the first piece you will need to go down the ladder to the right, so you are underground.

  3. Use the key to the left on the door, then go back in time to before you used the key, and use it again on the second door.

  4. Grab the puzzle piece and move down the ladder. Go to the left but, ignore the first key you see. Drop down the pit. and grab the key.

  5. Go back in time to before you dropped down the pit, and use the key on the door.

  6. Get the key above the plants and use that on the middle door. Now go back to before you used the key and use it again on the third door.

  7. Get the puzzle piece and move on. You don't need to bother assembling the puzzle until you have all the pieces, you can do it in the over world.

Lair

  1. Grab the key then go back in time and jump over the pit

  2. Climb by the chandelier to knock it over. Once the boss wakes up go back in time to before you knocked the chandelier down, and knock it on the boss' head. Keep going back in time after you knock down the chandeliers until you kill the boss.

A Tingling

  1. Star by moving the platform all the way to the right.

  2. Then move over to the platform under the goomba with the key.

  3. Walk back (not time travel) to the lever. Pull it then time travel back to the platform under the goomba with the key and jump on the platform to get to the ladder with the puzzle piece

  4. Once you have the puzzle piece move the platform back to the right, and get the key from the goomba and move on.

  5. Make your way across the pit and hit the lever on the left to bring up a platform. Go back in time to where you are climbing so you can land on the platform that came up

  6. You will not be affected by time travel here so go back in time all the way so the wall blocking the puzzle piece to the left of the screen raises again. Hurry back over there and get the puzzle piece.

  7. NOTE!!!: If you want to *fully* complete the game, and

    discover the secondary ending (which is the singularly most difficult part of any game I think I've ever played), then

    don't complete the world 3 puzzle until

    you've got the secret star that you can't get once you've joined specific pieces together

  8. Now that you are done world 3, put the puzzle together in the over world.

World 4

The Pitt
  1. In world 4 time moves forward when you move right and backwards when you move left.

  2. Jump across the pit so to goomba will grab the key, then go down the pit to get the key, and reverse time using shift.

Jumpman

  1. start by going to the area to the right with the cannons, get the puzzle piece at the top, and then grab the key.

  2. Now drop back down and go back to the platforms to the left. You need to use the key on the left door.

  3. You need to jump on the goomba that falls off the left, to get to the top.

Just out of reach

  1. Star by flipping the lever and then go up the ladder.

  2. Now you need to jump on the goomba that fell off the left side, past the lever and then back onto the platform you are currently on. It's a little tricky, if you mess up just go back in time and try again.

  3. The walls will not be in their starting positions, jump on the goomba to get over the wall, and grab the puzzle piece.

  4. Jump on the goomba that falls to get over the gap, and climb the ladder.

  5. Jump over the left edge onto the top platform, then go back to the right and jump over the goomba you had to jump on before.

  6. He will move to the right, and grab the key. Now go back in time and jump on him to get the key.

  7. Go back to a point where you can climb up the ladder on the right and use the key on the door, grab the puzzle piece and exit the level.

Hunt

  1. This works just like last time except you need to kill the goombas in a different order to be able to pass.

Huntorder.jpg

  1. You'll need to kill the goombas in the order shown in the screen shot. Between two and three you'll need to go down the right side and jump over the gap.

  2. Once you kill the final goomba it's okay to go back in time because the door will stay open.

Movement by Degrees

  1. Start by getting the goomba to the other side of the fly traps. Then you'll need to keep going right until the goomba can get the key and get back to the fly traps.

  2. Once it gets the key go back and pick it up, then go to the door on the top and grab the puzzle piece.

  3. This next piece is going to take some tricky timing. You need to stand under the puzzle piece, then move towards the door. Then reverse time so that the goomba can get by the plants at the top. You'll need to stop and start time to do this. Use the arrow keys to adjust the flow of time.

Movement, Amplified

  1. You'll need to use the clouds to speed up your movement here. Time it right so the goomba can get past the two plants on the end that pop up quickly, and grab the key.

  2. go back and get the key, and use it on the left door on the top.

  3. Climb to the top of the ladder on the right side, and jump off the edge of the cannon. You should land on the large cloud. Run and jump off the edge of the cloud onto the platform.

Fickle Companion

  1. In this level the key will only go forwards in time with you, never backwards. Take it to the door on the right. You need to go into the top door, then go back and let the key drop so the goomba will take it in the bottom.

  2. Once the key is in the bottom go back in time so that you are on the same side of the door as the goomba and use the key to get the puzzle piece.

  3. Now go back in time to the beginning of the level.

  4. you need to pull the level then go down and kill the goomba. Go back in time to when you are at the lever and catch the new goomba on the platform.

  5. Let the goomba grab the key then kill him when he is at the second ladder.

  6. Grab the key and open the door to get the second puzzle piece.

World 5

The Pit
  1. In world 5, when you go back in time a shadow copy of yourself will do what you did before you went back in time.

  2. In this level jump down and grab the puzzle piece, then go back in time to before you jumped in the pit. Your shadow will grab the puzzle piece for you while you go to the door.

So Distant

  1. For the first piece, run to the wall, then run to the lever and pull it. Go back in time and go through the door that your shadow will make when it pulls the lever for you.

  2. Now move to the right. Jump on the goomba to get to the lever. Wait a second then pull it.

  3. Go back in time and jump on the goomba to get to the left side.

  4. Grab the puzzle piece and go through the exit.

Unnamed level 5-3

  1. First you'll need to get the puzzle piece in the middle of the level. Start by going to the platform above the puzzle.

  2. Go to one side of the tunnel and taunt the bunny in the middle to you, and keep it there for a few seconds. Then go back in time and go to the other side. While your shadow taunts the bunny, grab the puzzle piece.

  3. Now go back in time so you are up top again. Jump across to the starting area.

  4. Jump back down and grab the key, wait a second then jump into the pit of spikes.

  5. Go back in time until you are up top again. Then go stand on the other side of the pit from where you just jumped, you should grab the key from yourself.

  6. Get the second puzzle piece and go to the exit.

Crossing the Gap

  1. Start by pulling the lever then drop down and kill the goomba. Go back in time and jump across the gap. when a new goomba pops out of the cannon use it to get up to the first puzzle piece.

  2. Pull the lever then kill the goomba that just came out.

  3. The next goomba should fall down to where you started. Kill that goomba then go back in time and pull the lever. It should make a long bridge. Use the goomba to get the second puzzle piece.

  4. Now the goomba should spawn and walk all the way across to the exit door.

  5. You need to stand under the goomba so it bounces on your head.

  6. Go back in time a bit, so the goomba will bounce on your shadow and you can jump on the goomba in mid air and reach the puzzle piece.

Shadow.jpg
Window of Opportunity

  1. Grab the key from the goomba to the right.

  2. Use the key on the bottom door first, then go back in time and use it on the top door. Use the bottom door as a platform before your shadow uses his key on it.

  3. Pull the lever then go get the puzzle piece.

  4. Head to the area on left. First go to the lower platform stand under the lever. Press up as if you were pulling the lever.

  5. Now go back in time pull the lever on the top and then go on to platform to the right. Grab the puzzle piece and go to the exit.

Lair

  1. The first thing you'll want to do with this level is to kill the boss just like you did last time, except you can only use one of the chandeliers. You'll have to use your shadow to drop the chandelier on the boss.

  2. Once you've killed the boss stand in about the middle of the level for a few seconds.

  3. Go to the left, wait a second or two, then use the lever.

  4. Now go back in time and use other door and move to the right. Once your shadow uses the lever you should be able to get the puzzle piece and exit the level.

Fragile Companion

  1. This one is pretty simple. You will need to get the key from the goomba, then jump towards the door and go back in time in mid-air. Your shadow should jump and unlock the first door leaving you with the key to unlock the second.

  2. Exit the level and put the puzzle together in the over world

World 6

The Pit
  1. In world six you can create isolated time anomalies by pressing the down key. give it a try then move on.

There and Back Again

  1. Make a time bubble appear below where the wall is coming down on the right. Hurry and go grab the key before the wall falls down and grab the puzzle piece.

Phase?

  1. Make a time bubble on the clouds to slow them down. Once you can reach the next cloud remove the bubble and jump, placing a bubble on the new cloud until you can reach the next. Do this until you can jump on the cannon.

  2. for the next cannon simply place a time bubble on the upper platform right where the flower is. This will make it very easy for you to be able to jump on the clouds and get to the next puzzle piece.

Cascade

  1. Start by placing a bubble in front of the cannon thats shooting goombas so that you can jump on two in a row and get the upper puzzle piece.

  2. Place a bubble on the cannon all the way to the right. when the goomba falls down use it to get the puzzle piece floating there.

  3. Now head back up to the cannon shooting the goombas that you just jumped on.

  4. Use a time bubble on the platform where the goombas all on to, so you can jump on one in mid air to get to the same platform as the cannon. Then jump from that platform onto a goomba on the lower platform to get the height you need to make it to the far platform.

bubblejump.jpg

  1. Now put a bubble on the cannon again, until a goomba can make it all the way across and fall down. Then use that goomba to jump from the platform onto the cannon on the left, that's shooting fireballs.

  2. Place a time bubble on the cannon. This will slow down the shots enough for you to be able to get to the door and pull the lever, then get back out.

  3. Go up the ladder go to the left and jump down to get the puzzle piece. Then exit the level.

Impassable Foliage

  1. Place a bubble before the wall thats going upwards to slow it down so the other panel can get across the spike pit.

  2. Now move the bubble to below the piranha plant so that you can make it across to grab the puzzle piece.

  3. Go to the right and start working on the plants here. You'll need to use your bubble to change the plants timing so that the goombas can get across. You need two across in a row to be able to reach the platform. The bubble has a pretty wide radius so move the bubble far away from the plants that have the right timing.

  4. Once you get the puzzle piece move onto the next level.

Elevator Action

  1. There's nothing special you have to do before you grab the key so go get it to start.

  2. when you go back up the elevator put a time bubble on it, and send it back down while you run through the fireballs.

  3. Once you get the puzzle piece go to the left and climb the ladder. Pull the lever and wait for the platform on the left to lower. Leave a time bubble on the upper platform.

  4. Go raise the platforms using the lever to the right, and then lower them again. The time bubble will slow down the platform with the ladder so the smaller one can get by it.

  5. Go remove your time bubble, and then go back to the lever on the right.

  6. Pull the lever so that the smaller platform comes almost all the way back then pull the lever again so that you can use it as a platform to get to the ladder.

  7. You need to put a bubble on the tiny platform floating to the left, and then get over there after you pull the lever, by going back in time while the platforms are moving. Climb the ladder on the right as its falling while you have time immunity to get the puzzle piece.

  8. For the final piece, you need to place a time bubble beside the lever on the right.

  9. Now go pull the lever and let the platform with the ladder on it raise. Then lower it again.

  10. Go stand on the very edge of the platform and then go back in time so it raises. You will be immune to the time effect so jump across the platform and grab the piece above the cannon.

  11. Exit the level

In Another Castle

  1. place a time bubble on the platform that the key is on and leave it there for a few seconds. Then remove the bubble and move on.

  2. Place a new time bubble near the cannon and then climb up the ladder.

  3. Stand to the area to the left of the lever and reverse time until the bubble is by the key again

  4. Pull the lever, then run across the ladder so you fall down the other side, then run and catch the key. You will also need to remove your time bubble while you are in mid air.

  5. once you get the puzzle piece move on.

  6. Put the puzzle together in the over world and then climb the ladder to world 1.

World 1

Unnamed 1-1
  1. In world 1 time flows backwards, and there are no puzzle pieces.

  2. Jump on the goombas that are flying upwards so they will be alive again, and use them to get to the door.

Unnamed 1-2

  1. Jump on the goombas that are flying up from the bottom, then climb the ladder to the right

  2. You will need to jump on the goombas in mid air to get to the door, as they are jumping to the platform with the cannon on the right.

Unnamed 1-3

  1. This level works just like the previous, only you will need to jump on the goombas to get to the upper right instead of using the ladder.

Braid

  1. Rescue the princess from the knight by following her. She will pull the levers on the top and you will need to pull the ones on the bottom.

  2. Once you get to the end, reverse time.

  3. Chase the princess before she can be rescued by the knight.

  4. Read the epilogue

Epilogue

  1. In the first area of the epilogue after you open the red book, move behind the rock to the right. When you hear singing the text will change to give you a new perspective.

  2. In the second area after you open the red book, go back in time and stand behind the pillows on the left. Once you hear the singing the text will have changed

  3. For the third room, open the red book and then wait a few seconds. Go to the platform in the fourth room and stand on it. Go back in time until you hear the red book open, then stand behind the statue in the third room.

  4. In the fourth area jump off the platform and pull the lever to the right, go back in time until you are back on the platform, then go forward in time until it starts to rise. Open the red book then wait for the platform to rise to the top. Walk off the left side and stand behind the boulder.

If you want to *fully* complete the game, and

discover the secondary ending (which is the singularly most difficult part of any game I think I've ever played), then

don't complete the world 3 puzzle until

you've got the secret star that you can't get once you've joined specific pieces together

I think you should put the info about the first secret star on the very top of the review, since - as Gareth says - you cannot get it anymore after finishing the World 3 jigsaw puzzle (which was kinda lame from John Blow's behalf, but ok).

I cant solve world 1.. the walkthrough doesn't tell how to solve it.. walkthrough just say save the princess... lol... its so hard anyway

Saving the princess requires precise control. The earlier platforms need waiting and you can't run too fast. Then, instead of climbing down stairs and nets, jumping down is faster. Repeatingly jump on the first goomba that you can reach to get to the lever, then wait a moment to get behind the left-heading goomba coming from the tunnel. If you can't reach the first goomba, try going further back in time and see whether you can go faster.

Okay, quick question about the last room... As your winding back time there is a ladder that links you to the princess but I haven't found anyway to use it, am I missing something? It just seems odd because that ladder was not there originally. I'll be checking back, please leave a comment of you know.

JIGuest, The whole point of the back in time is that the princess is trying to prevent Tim from getting to her. The ladder goes up behind Tim as she pulls a lever... of course the fire is already consuming it on Tims way under so it isn't worth noting.

The game "unexpectedly quits" every time I hit Launch. Any suggestions as to what I should do (on a Mac)?

If you are on a Mac try forcing it to start in windowed mode at a low res (e.g. 640x480) if it doesn't start.

This could have been a really good guide, but unfortunately, I don't think you are very good at explaining things. A few of these steps really confused me because you seemed to not know how to word things! Oh well. On to the next.
