I love the game but a little stuck, and not willing to look at walkthrough sites.

Anyone know of places to find "hints" to help through levels without giving away the solution completely?

    A suggestion, if I may: you could also describe your particular problem and someone here might be able to give you a hint directly. – Aubergine Jul 18 '10 at 14:48
  • Have to agree with @Aubergine here. Why not make us a place to find hints about getting through some of the levels? – Grace Note Jul 18 '10 at 15:32
  • Agreed with @Aubergine... that's essentially the whole point of this site. – aranasaurus Jul 18 '10 at 21:36
  • A good design point of Braid is that one doesn't have to complete a level (or world) in entirety before attempting the next. You can make progress elsewhere, then return with a fresh mind. This is much less frustrating than being literally stuck as happens in linear puzzle games like Portal. – Colonel Panic Sep 23 '12 at 16:34

This blog has pretty good hints for each world, without explicitly giving away the solutions. Unfortunately it is down now, but here are the individual links from web.archive.org:

  • Thanks..this is the best answer, but i agree I'll ask for specific as well so it gets captured here – Cykoduck Jul 22 '10 at 22:08
  • +1 - Wish I'd seen that before spoiling "The Cloud Bridge" :-( – Zommuter Sep 24 '11 at 7:44
  • As per this suggested edit, most of the links are now down. – galacticninja May 22 '13 at 3:46
  • @galacticninja they are fixed already (mostly by Anna lear ) – Arperum May 22 '13 at 11:25

The names of the levels are sometimes subtle hints, eg. leap of faith, phase, just out of reach.
