Play OverviewPlay Overview

Baba is You (2019) requires some lateral thinking. Each level is controlled by rules written on the screen, such as ‘Lava is Hot’, ‘Wall is Stop’ and ‘Flag is Move’. By moving the words around with your pixelated character, you subvert the level’s logic to your advantage.

Our examiner, Jo Robertson, first checked Baba is You 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 3 weeks ago.
