Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0219
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0219

Enter the door to World 4.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0220
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0220

Read the books for some back story.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0221
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0221

Then enter the first door on your right.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0222
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0222

You'll begin level 4-1, "The Pit".

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0223
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0223

In these levels, you'll learn a new time mechanic. When you walk to your right, time moves forward. When you walk to your left, time reverses. You'll see as you move forward, so does the enemy in the pit.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0224
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0224

Don't drop in the pit, instead jump over it and walk right into the locked door. This will move you as far as possible to the right, making the enemy walk forward and pick up the time-protected key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0225
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0225

Now walk left and drop into the pit. Time will reverse, but it won't affect the key. Kill the enemy and take the key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0226
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0226

Now reverse time the normal way to get yourself out of the pit.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0227
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0227

Unlock the locked door.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0228
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0228

Exit through the door on the far-right.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0229
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0229

This will bring us to level 4-2, "Jumpman".

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0230
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0230

This level may look very familiar... think Donkey Kong, another Mario reference. Start by going to the right and climbing the first ladder.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0231
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0231

Climb the ladder on your left and get onto the small platform to the upper-left of it.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0232
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0232

Now if you jump left, which reverses time, an enemy will fall upward. Land on him as he does, getting enough of a bounce to land on the platform behind "Donkey Kong".

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0233
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0233

Jump over "Donkey Kong" and head for that puzzle piece.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0234
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0234

You can bounce on the enemy's head here to reach the puzzle piece.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0235
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0235

Now let's head over to another set of platforms on your right.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0236
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0236

Climb up the first ladder and head rightward, jumping over the fireballs.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0237
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0237

Climb the ladder and head left. Since you're reversing time by walking left, the fireballs will go the same direction as you. Just avoid hitting any.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0238
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0238

Climb the ladder and jump onto the block on your left.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0239
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0239

Now you can jump on the platforms to your right to grab a time-protected key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0240
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0240

Jump to the right, landing on a puzzle piece. This puzzle piece is protected from time, so reversing time won't make you lose it.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0241
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0241

Rewind time, bringing yourself back to where you collected the first puzzle piece.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0242
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0242

Jump onto the enemies head to bounce up to the locked door.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0243
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0243

Open the locked door and grab the puzzle piece.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0244
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0244

Now we're done with this area, but you can't simply walk to the exit, the snapping plant will be in your way. Instead, climb the ladder and head right, jumping over fireballs. Just jump over the cannon to get over to the right.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0245
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0245

Exit the level through the door on your right.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0246
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0246

This will bring you to level 4-3, "Just Out of Reach".

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0247
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0247

Climb halfway up the ladder and pull the switch on your left.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0248
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0248

Now climb up the ladder the rest of the way. The enemy should walk under the first moving wall, letting you get up the ladder. If not, the switch probably needs to be pulled again.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0249
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0249

Now Jump off the left ledge, far enough to the left to undo the switch. Bounce on the enemy's head.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0250
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0250

After bouncing on the enemy, try to land back onto the platform you jumped off of.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0251
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0251

When you get close to the walls, jump on the enemy's head.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0252
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0252

This should let you bounce up onto the first wall.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0253
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0253

Go right and collect the puzzle piece.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0254
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0254

Jump rightward from the puzzle piece. Your goal is to bounce off the enemy's head, but not kill him.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0255
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0255

After you bounce, you want to land on the platform above. You need that enemy to be alive, so make sure you go far enough to the left to bring it back to life.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0256
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0256

Walk to the right, so the enemy grabs the key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0257
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0257

Drop off the left edge of the platform and kill the enemy, taking the key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0258

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0278
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0278

When the snappers go down, jump over to the platform on your right and keep heading right until you hear the sound of the enemy picking up a key.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0279

Go to the lower-right of this level. You'll see some snapping plants that go forward and reverse with time as you move. Enemies will fire out of the cannon and are time-protected.

Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0283
Braid Walkthrough - Braid 0283

You're goal is to get that time-protected enemy over to the puzzle piece. Walk to the left to get the middle snapping plant down in the pipe.

To get a hidden star, rewind to the beginning of the level. Grab the key and climb up the first ladder, to the top of the platforms. Head to the cannon on the right.

Before you can do this, you'll have to kill the enemy that is likely wandering at the bottom of the level, then quickly rewind up here.
