The adventure starts after waking up in your home. Head outside to receive some mail. Access your mailbox to receive a letter. Make your way to the top of the village to meet Geezer. After some cutscenes and learning how to rotate the screen, the game will crash.
Start the game for the second time. Exit your home again and learn about your current circumstance. After the conversation, you’ll be able to earn your first two achievements. Enter the code: , , , , , , , . This will cause an Anti-Cube (1/32) to appear above you, collect it to unlock:
You’ll see your first cube bit to your right, collect it and climb to the top of the village to find two bits along the way and one at the very top (remember to rotate the world). The four houses closest to the top have the other four bits inside. After collecting all eight bits, you’ll get your first Golden Cube (1/32) and unlock another achievement.
You should see an island nearby with a chest, climb up if need be and head over to it. To open the chest, face it from the front and rotate until prompted to press . Inside will be a key.
Enter the house below the locked door (it’s one level up from your house). Once inside, rotate twice to reveal a hidden room. Go through the fireplace and open the chest to receive another key. Rotate twice again and enter the code: , , , , , , , . Revealing another Anti-Cube (2/32) and potentially unlocking:
If not, you’ll get it eventually by entering more codes.
Head back outside and enter the locked door above, collect the Treasure Map (1/9) inside. Still in here, enter the code: , , , , , , , . This reveals another Anti-Cube (3/32). Now that you’ve collected everything here, head back outside and use the vines at the bottom to reach the exit.
In this new area, you’ll be given access to the world map (). When you’ve collected everything in an area, it becomes gold on the world map. There are a few areas you won’t need to enter, but by the time you’re done with the game, the majority of the areas will be gold.
Climb to the top of this area, collecting the cube bits in your path for a Golden Cube (2/32). Enter the door at the top. In this new area are three doors all requiring a different number of cubes to open. You only have enough to open the four cube door, so go on through it.
In this area you’ll find four cube bits. First, climb to the top of the middle structure to reach the visible bit. On the way up, the first two doors you pass also contain two bits. If you enter the third door you’ll be introduced to black holes (these are dangerous, so avoid them). After collecting the bit up top, head back down to the single door in the right structure to find the last bit of the area. There is nothing to be found in the far left door.
Head back to the previous area through the purple door at the bottom of the middle structure and climb to the top. Head through to the next area. Jump to the right to collect a cube bit, then climb up and jump to the top of the middle island to collect another bit. Jump to the island on the left, rotate, climb the vines and drop down to reach the top door. Go through it to reach an area with a waterfall.
Head up to the area above where you enter to collect the single cube bit. Wait here until night for an owl to arrive, then speak with it (press ) until it flies away. This is one of the four owls you need to speak with to have access to an Anti-Cube later in the game.
After speaking with the owl, enter the code: , , , , , , , , . Doing so will reveal a secret entrance behind the waterfall, go through it. Drop down and grab the valve (hold after conversation), rotate left to lower the water level all the way and reveal a door below you. Enter to find an area with a chest, inside you’ll find another Treasure Map (2/9).
Back out to the first waterfall, rotate right once then enter the code: , , , , , , , . Go through the now open entrance. Jump up the disappearing/reappearing blocks to reach a blue platform with a door, go through it. Climb up to find a U-shape and enter the code: , , , , , , , . By doing so, you’ll receive another Anti-Cube (4/32).
Go back to the previous area and continue up the blocks to reach another door. Enter and climb to the top of this area to find another Anti-Cube (5/32). Collecting this cube will reveal a portal, go through to return to the current hub. Head back to the area with the waterfall.
Jump over to the waterfall island and rotate until you see a door blocked by rocks. You need to blow this open with the bomb above it. Grab it with and carry it down to blow up the rocks, then go through. In this area, climb up to the top, grab the bomb and drop down one level. Rotate right once to reveal a section of wall that can be exploded. Inside you’ll find a cube bit, creating another Golden Cube (3/32).
Grab the bomb again to blow up the wall up here on the opposite side to reveal an entrance. Enter the next area. Grab the bomb on the left and rotate left. Destroy the small section of wall on the right to reveal a cube bit. Now destroy the other section of wall, rotating to continue the explosion all the way through. You’ll collect another bit while making your way up. Continue climbing to the top of this area by destroying the walls. At the top you’ll find a Golden Cube (4/32).
Do not go through the portal, instead make your way back down to the previous level. Destroy the rocks blocking a door here and go through. Grab the bomb above, rotate left and destroy the wall below to find a cube bit. Destroy the next wall and make your way up to the chest using the ladders, rotating the screen to connect them. Inside you’ll find a key.
Head back to the waterfall area. On the same level as the bomb there’s another blocked entrance, clear the way and enter. Collect the cube bit above you, then head down to collect another bit and a Golden Cube (5/32). Enter the code (on a different level from the portal): , , , , , , , . An Anti-Cube (6/32) will appear.

Collect the two bits in this area and open the chest at the top for a key, then go through the other door. Make your way to the top, collecting the three bits along the way for a Golden Cube (7/32). At the top is another Golden Cube (8/32).
Ignore the portal, jump to the nearby tree and go through the entrance in the trunk. You can’t rotate in this area, so head to the handle at the top, collecting a cube bit on the way. Grab onto it and rotate right, collect the bit above and below, then rotate right again to find a door. Go through to another puzzle area.
You need to place the four blocks in the correct hole on each side of the cube at the top. You can tell which blocks go where by aligning the lines on the block with the lines around the middle of the cube. Start by rotating twice, grabbing the block at the bottom and carrying it up by jumping up the pillars. Throw it to the top when on the highest pillar (jump and press ). Now place the blocks in the correct holes to reveal a door. Go through and climb to the top for an Anti-Cube (10/32).
