ilomilo walkthrough and achievement video guide

Like a cuddly puppy that takes a dump in your favorite pair of shoes, ilomilo is a cute little thing that will occasionally drive you crazy. If you’ve already given up trying to snag all the collectibles and complete some of the game’s more complex puzzles, we’re here to help. Our guide will help you get through the game and nab all the achievements along the way.

This guide is divided into four chapters, each containing 12 levels. Because ilomilo is a game in which direction is difficult to describe, the numbered steps in the text description match the appropriate video guide.

Note that these guides do not explain how to beat each level with the least possible moves. The focus here is collecting all safkas and picture / soundtrack gallery pieces.

Chapter 1


The Musician (20g)

This achievement is fairly easy and is completed in the main menu of the game. You’ll notice that each time you move the menu selection tool up or down, it plays a sound. The objective of this achievement is to move the selection tool in the menu so that its music plays in harmony with the song playing in the background. It’s fairly lenient even if you make a small mistake like the one at the beginning of the video.
