Little Nightmares: Beginner's tips

Death in Little Nightmares can come unexpectedly easily. You can also get stuck in a place for a long time. Here are some quick tips for beginners:

  1. You can use a lighter to illuminate dark places. This helps not only when you are moving through the main locations, but also in finding secret rooms and collectibles.
  2. Avoid jumping from high ledges. This can kill you. You should also plan every jump.
  3. In escape scenes, try to learn the behavior of large opponents. This will make it easier for you to repeat these stages - you will know how to avoid their attacks.
  4. Slides can be very helpful in avoiding attacks of smaller monsters and larger opponents who can grab you.
  5. Remember to always press the grab ledge button/key. The main character does not do this automatically.
