Welcome to the Into Indie Games guide for Monument Valley! This guide was made with the Panoramic Edition in mind, but it should be valid for all versions of the game.
For more information on Monument Valley, check out the official website here.
For the final area door, rotate so that you can see the first area door again. Stand on the tile to the left of this door.
Turn the gear with the circular handles that’s located on the middle floor of the windmill, and turn it so that the lift next to Ida comes all the way down.
Step on the lift and then turn the gear to bring the lift all the way up. Head through the final door.
Begin by moving right, to the second blue-marked tile. This tile is on a moving platform, so grab the circular handles at the bottom and turn 90 degrees clockwise. Step on the white area to the left.
Turn 90 degrees counterclockwise and step on the next blue-marked tile. Turn clockwise 90 degrees and proceed to the next blue-marked tile (which is next to your current tile). Now turn 90 degrees counterclockwise, and go to the white tile just to the left of the pointed yellow tower. You should land up just next to another blue-marked tile.
Turn 90 degrees clockwise and click on the tile at the end of the ladder so that Ida ‘climbs’ it. Step on the grey tile to the left here, and rotate 180 degrees. Go to the middle tile of the straight movable block, and then rotate 90 degrees clockwise.
Now head on to the very top of the structure and stand in the middle tile there. Rotate 90 degrees clockwise and step onto the stairs facing away from the camera (this can be a bit fiddly to get right). Once you’re on the stairs (and not the movable block), rotate 180 degrees.
Step on the tile next to the stairs, i.e. on the rotating pillar.
Rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise and go to the lower-rightmost tile from this view. Rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise again and ‘descend’ the ladder to step on the yellow-marked tile on the moving platform.
Rotate counterclockwise 90 degrees and finally, head through the door.
After Totem is back, send Ida back down the lift using the gear, and then to the tile she was on when the level started, down the stairs. Move Totem to her left.
Put Ida on top of Totem, which should be easily possible if Ida has a clear path to the middle floor and Totem is standing adjoining the middle floor.
With Ida on top of Totem, move Totem all the way to the lift.
Raise the lift with the gear and head over to the pedestal to finish Ida’s Dream.
