Limbo walkthrough and achievement guide

Solve every puzzle and get every achievement with our complete Limbo guide

After you drop down from the rope, head left. Touch the small structure, then quickly back up before it topples onto you. Head right and get your dose of hanging head maggot. With the structure out of the way, the light will force you to turn around.

Eventually you’ll reach a button on the ground. Step on it, then hold left on the control stick until the box drops in front of you. Hop on, then leap over the saw and let the hanging munchers ahead eat the head maggot.

Now head back in the direction you came. On the first hanging pipe, run from end to end to start a see-saw motion. When the left end reaches high enough you can proceed. Pull this next pipe and let it go. It will swing back and forth allowing you to reach the next ledge.

Chapter 14

Continue past the elevator. You’ll need to move the crate so that it is lifted when you activate the elevator. Push the crate off the lift.

- URBAN EXPLORATION (10g): Lower the elevator, then press the button and quickly hop from the crate to the top of the elevator. Before you get smashed like Jeff Daniels, leap to the left and grab the rope. This drops a magic egg from the pipe. Swing to the RIGHT and use the elevator to break your fall. Step on the egg for the achievement.

Push the crate so that it is in the center of the see-saw making sure the left end is still down. Activate the elevator but quickly grab the portion with a handle and pull that onto the see-saw. This will let you proceed.

Push the crate into the center of the room, pull the lever on the right, and wait for the rope to come down. Pull the lever again and use the crate to grab the rope before it gets out of reach.

This area is tricky. You need to time the button presses so that the right crate falls onto the left one. Refer to the video.

-ALONE IN THE DARK (10g): Go past the ladder and down the slope into the dark. As you run, you’ll hear your shoes hit water. Jump at this point to avoid drowning. Continue on to find a magic egg - step on it for an achievement.

Move slowly toward the fly so as not to scare it off. When you are within a few feet, jump forward and grab its legs in order to proceed.

Continue on and climb the ladders. You’ll eventually reach an area with two ledges on rails. Make sure they are in the position as seen in the screenshot before pressing the button on the left. Push the button, then hop over the left ledge and push it so that it catches the tire. Pull the ledge all the way to the right ledge, then push the right ledge all the way to the right. This should transport the tire successfully.

Return the switch below near where the tire fell. Push the tire up the slope to the left, then run to the right. When the tire activates the switch, jump and pull the crate under and past the open door. Don’t worry if you screw up the first time, the tire will hit the switch once more due to momentum. Use this crate to reach the lever to your right.

-CLIMBING THE COG (10g): Before you pull the lever, hop onto the cog and proceed right to find a magic egg. Step on it for an achievement.

After getting the achievement, climb the ladder and push the crate at the top onto the cog. After pulling the lever, push your first crate onto the cog as well. This will give you two crates for the next area.

Put one crate on the button and one next to wall on the right in order to reach the next area.

Before pressing the button in this next area, swing from the chain in order to get it moving back and forth. Time it so that you press the button and can grab the chain before it gets out of reach. Refer to the video.

Push the small cog into the large one. The screen will begin to rotate and the trap door near the small cog will fall open. Ride the cog up to the next area.

You need to turn off the magnet, and push the crate to the top of the slope. Run back down quickly and turn on the magnet to lock the crate in place about halfway down the slope, allowing you to proceed.

Run past the lever, and pull the crate underneath the chain. Pull the lever and leap up and grab the chain. The screen will again rotate - wait until the crate is under you and let go of the chain. Leap from the crate just before it touches the saw and grab the next chain. Swing to the wall on the left, the slope will ease your fall.

Push the lever to rotate the level again. Wait for the crate to fall, the push it to the ledge on your right quickly and jump to the next area.

Another head maggot. Once it latches on, head back to the hanging lamp and you’ll change direction. Run under the first press, and grab onto the second but do not climb up. Wait for the press to close then run across, as seen in the screenshot. Use the crates on the next conveyor belt to reach the hanging munchers.

-BACKTRACKING (10g): Use one of the crates in order to backtrack. You need to time your jump from a crate, and hang on to the edge of the press just like before. Climb onto the press, and as it rises jump to the ladder on the left to reach an area with a magic egg. Step on it for an achievement.

Use the lever to change the direction in which the cogs are spinning in order to reach the ladder. From here, climb onto the left cog which should be spinning counter-clockwise.
