STELLA'S LARA CROFT GO WALKTHROUGH - Android, iOS, PS4 and Vita, Windows/Linux/OSX via Steam, and Windows Phone/PC/Tablet


Updated: 4/13/17()

This Lara Croft GO Strategy Guide includes both video and text walkthroughs with annotated screenshots. Scroll down to choose video or screenshots for each level. Or check out this YouTube Playlist for the complete video walkthrough.


Controls: Swipe or click your mouse and drag in the direction you want Lara to move. Tap or click on objects to use or break them. If you're using a controller, move Lara by pushing the left stick in the direction you want her to go. Easy peasy. Other controls and movable objects are covered in the walkthroughs for the levels where they first appear. There are also plentiful on-screen button prompts.

To reload a checkpoint, tap/click on the diamond icon in the lower left corner. Then tap/click the top left icon, which looks like a "rewind" arrow. To exit to the main menu ring, tap/click the diamond icon in the lower left corner then the middle left icon, which looks like a back arrow. If you're using a controller, press Start/Options to open the pause menu. Then choose 'Restart' to attempt the current puzzle again or 'Quit' to get back to the main menu.

The unlockable outfits are shown on a separate outfits page. To change outfits, while in the main menu ring, swipe/click and drag to rotate the menu items until the watch (labeled "Outfits") is visible. Tap/click it to examine and equip any outfits you've unlocked.
