Gorogoa Walkthrough: Chapter 4 – Yellow | Complete Puzzle Guide

The path to the blue offering is a complicated one in Chapter 4 of Gorogoa. Instead of a normal path, the boy moves through a wall of photographs — each photograph shows the boy at a different point in his life, and each background features a passage the boy can use. You’ll have to use all the frames available to you to help the boy jump from one photograph to the next.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, you’ll also need to rotate a series of gears. Several images (on plates, stain glass windows, and more) need to be rotated so the path ahead is pointing in the correct direction. You’ll need to match movement, and the correct-fitting gears to the proper frames to make progress in this chapter. There are so many options to choose from, but we’ll explain in detail how to solve every step.

Chapter 4 | Complete Puzzle Guide

Gorogoa isn’t a traditional puzzle game. You’ll need to manipulate tiles; moving, separating, or combining tiles to solve puzzles. Below, you’ll find step-by-step instructions for each puzzle in simple language, explaining only the bare-bones of each puzzle in strict detail. Check out the gallery for images showing every step of the puzzle.


  • This chapter begins after the boy collects the yellow apple from the tree branch. Move right (follow the boy) in the Tree Frame then zoom out to reach the Photo Wall Frame.
  • Photo Wall Frame: The goal of this section is to get the boy through the wall of photos.
    • To progress, go left in the Statue Frame and zoom out from the graveyard to re-enter the Library Frame to the right. When the sleeping boy dreams of falling, split the frame.
  • Window Frame: In the frame with the boy sitting at the window, split it again to find a map. The map will change depending on the tile you place it — keep this in mind for later.
  • Library Frame: Focus on the books to the right of the sleeping boy in the Library — you’ll zoom in and see three separate books you can interact with.
  • Map Frame: Place the map frame in the lower-right tile to see a star symbol. Focus on the star symbol until you find the Towers Frame — there are two doorways connected by stairs.
  • Photo Wall Frame: Focus on the upper-left photo so that the picture zooms in on the space between two photographs, with the boy on the left. Place the Towers Frame over the Photos Frame, combining them and allowing the boy to cross to the upper-right photo.
    • Upper-Right Photo Frame: To make progress here, place the Boy / Ledge Frame in the upper-left tile.
    • To reach the next door, focus on the bell on the table in the Window Frame until you reach the walking boy that rings a bell.
    • In the Library Frame, focus on the Yellow Book and zoom into the gear-shaped sun.
    • Zoom out of the former Towers Frame to find a gear-shaped Tableau Frame. Connect the sun / gear and the walking boy frames to turn the Tableau / Gear Frame. Turn the gear until the white frame is on the left.
  • Zoom into the White section of the Turning Gear Frame to find a wall that looks suspiciously similar to the one where the boy is standing. Connect the two frames so the boy waits at a cracked doorway.
  • Photo Wall Frame: Focus on the bottom-right photo to find a matching doorway with a blue offering symbol. Combine the frames then split them so the boy can move left. Follow the boy so that he’s waiting, once again, at a door between two picture frames.
  • Cracked Wall Frame: Zoom out of the cracked wall frame we just split to find a Stained Glass Window Frame. Again, there’s a gear-shape in the center, and you’ll need to turn it in the correct direction.
    • Stained Glass Window Frame: To help the boy cross the photographs, you’ll need to rotate the Stained Glass so that the towers frame (on the left naturally) is at the bottom position.
      • To rotate the Stained Glass Window Frame, focus on the Candle (Boy / Window Frame) until you find the spinning wheel. Zoom in close on the wheel, then layer the Stained Glass over the wheel gear. Three rotations should turn the Towers Frame down.
  • Photo Wall Frame: Return to the boy and focus on the Stained Glass Frame once the Towers are at the bottom of the Stained Glass Window. Focus on the towers, and combine the Towers Frame with the Photo Frame, then split them apart. The boy is almost at his destination. One more photo to reach.
  • For the last photo, return to the Boy / Window Frame and focus on the silver ladle. Zoom into the pattern and right at the mountains to find the Boy / Stairs Frame. You’ll also want to zoom out of the former Towers Frame to find a Plate Frame with four more images.
  • Plate Frame: To help the boy reach the final photo, you’ll need to turn the left-hand plate image upright, so it’s at the top position.
    • To rotate the Plate Frame, combine the Boy / Stairs Frame and the zoomed-in Blue Book from the Library.
    • Zoom out of the Plate Frame to shrink it slightly, then all three frames will fit together.
  • Plate Frame: Zoom into the Castle Ruin Frame when it’s at the top position then connect the Photo Frame where the boy is waiting. He’ll cross over, and then you can zoom out and back into the bottom-left photo of the old man. In the background, this last ruin will connect with where the boy is now standing.

Once the boy reaches the bottom-left photo of his older self, he’ll be able to collect the blue fruit offering and complete this complicated chapter.
