Thomas Was Alone

Hello and welcome to the Thomas Was Alone walkthrough, TWA is short indie game made by Curve Digital.

In this walkthrough I will be taking you through all the collectables you will need to get for the majority of the trophies but I will not be giving level walkthroughs as for the most part they are very simple and the only few tough ones just require you to take a second and think of how to... exploit the game.

There are 15 trophies in the game, 11 of which are tied to getting the game's pickups (collectables) the other 4 will come naturally through completing all the game's 100 levels.

My Xbox One has tracked me at 7hours for this game from start to finish.

Test

Characters and their abilities.

Main levels:

  • Thomas (Red rectangle) - Medium jump
  • Chris (Orange square) - Small jump
  • John (Tall yellow rectangle) - Large jump
  • Claire (Large blue square) - Tiny jump, can float on water
  • Laura (Short, wide pink rectangle) - Tiny jump, others can bounce on her
  • James (Green rectangle, like Thomas) - Medium jump like Thomas only is inverted
  • Sarah (Small purple rectangle) - Large double jump

Main level charactersMain level characters

Greyscale levels:

  • Grey (Tall light gray rectangle, like John) - Large jump
  • Sam (White square, like Chris) - Small jump
  • Jo (Dark gray rectangle, like Thomas) - Medium jump
  • Paul (Short medium gray rectangle) - Small jump
  • Team Jump (5 light gray squares) - Large jumps

You will learn most of the characters quirks but the main one you'll need to know for one of the later level sets is that Thomas and James can jump onto each others bottom and hover in the air and crab around bit by bit.

There is a scenario select to go back and get any pickups you may miss if needs be.

There is only 1 trophy tied to completing all 100 levels in the story but the other 3 miscellaneous trophies will come along the way for jumping 1600 times, dying 100 times and bouncing on Laura 100 times.

I will be running through each level's pickups in order and placing the miscellaneous details where applicable, there are 20 pickups in total across the 10 main worlds, pickups are small black squares and are simply picked up but jumping/passing through them.

There are two pickups in 'Spawn'

1. Level 0.3 @0:08

The first pickup is the bottom right of the first block you have to jump over. Clear the obstacle, drop to the floor and then move back to the left to pick it up.

2. Level 0.5 @0:20

The second pickup is to the left of your starting location floating above the water. Move left and jump cn_X to reach the pickup. You will die getting this pickup but don't worry.

There are two pickups in 'Array'

3. Level 1.8 @0:06

After jumping over the two pools over water with John and falling down to the bottom you will be at a point with some small jumps intended for Chris and John, you don't need them however. The pickup is top right of this area, if you jump onto the platform below it and the jump and move left at the same time you will clear the space above (See the video)

4. Level 1.9 @0:42

The pickup is located on the right hand wall after you've used to two small 'elevator' blocks. I found it easier to bring both Thomas and Chris with me but you should be able to make it on your own with John. (See video for use with Thomas and Chris)

There are two pickups in 'Origin'

Level 2.4 @0:08

You start off on top of Claire and the water is rising, use Thomas to activate the switch then jump back onto Claire, as the water rises and you travel through the path you come to an opening with 4 blocks, jump off as soon as you can and head off to the left where the pickup is, it doesn't matter if you die.

6. Level 2.9 @0:58

When you get to the area with the elevator blocks you will see the pickup below the second set of spikes above the first elevator, again it doesn't matter if you die.

Sorry the pickups aren't in there this time but they'd be where I die.

Now level 3 is the first time you're introduced to Laura, the best level to bounce on Laura is level 3.2, Switch to Chris cn_R1/cn_L1 and jump cn_X onto Laura and leave him bouncing on her until he has bounced 100 times. Make sure that they are not touching their end level shapes.

There are two pickups in 'Associations'

Level 3.4 @0:04

Once you have gotten Laura and Chris up to the second level (Where their end spaces are) the pickup is top right under the small lip, use Laura to bounce Chris up to it. (See video for where I am bouncing)

Level 3.8 @0:11

As soon as you begin level John and jump onto the top right square of the 4 moving squares, the pickup is on the top right hand side and you can easily jump to it cn_X

Here's a video (Unfortunately I already collected the first one)

By this time if you're like me you'll of died over 100times, if not spikes kill everyone and water will kill everyone but Claire (Who floats) The best place to farm this (and a few jumps) is level 2.9 after you reach the second respawn point since you are directly below some spikes, use cn_X to jump and die repeatedly till this unlocks.

You will of most likely jumped over 1600 times by now too for

There are two pickups in 'Purge'

Level 4.4 @0:04

After you pass through the 3rd checkpoint the pickup will be to the right under the second block with spikes on it to the right, its hard to see so if you miss it land on the spikes below to retry (As I do in the video)

Level 4.8 @0:46

Immediately upon starting the level press cn_R1/cn_L1 to switch to Claire (Blue) and move left cn_LSl to place Claire next to the spike wall for John (Yellow) to jump on and jump to the pickup which is right next to the spike wall so you will die.

There are two pickups in 'Invert'

Level 5.1 @0:06

When you reach the end of the level after the spikes stay on the bottom (top) and follow the path to the end and the pickup is there.

Level 5.4 @0:18

As soon as the level starts swap to Thomas cn_L1/cn_R1 move left a bit and jump cn_X as the pickup is above Thomas (I already picked it up in the video, its where im jumping)

There are two pickups in 'Iterate'

Level 6.2 @0:04

In this level you need to follow the ray of light to the switches, after you press the second switch the pickup will be above the middle block, you will need to double jump at the peak of your first jump to reach it cn_X.

Level 6.7 @0:44

This ones easy, at the start of the level switch to Sarah and head towards the middle of the level, the pickup is just above the floor spikes, you will die getting this.

There are two pickups in 'Design'

Level 7.1 @0:04

Once you have freed everyone and have free movement the pickup is above where Chris (Orange) was, stack Chris and Thomas on top of Claire and use John to jump on them to then jump to the pickup.

Level 7.10 @0:22

Switch to Sarah (Purple) and follow the course down, pass through the checkpoint carry on to the end of the level and the pickup is at the top in a small nook that can be reached with a double jump.

Level 8.5 @0:04

After you drop into the water jump up to the checkpoint and grab the red strips, then fall into the water on your right where the pickup is, you will die.

Level 8.10 @0:16

When the level begins drop down and bounce off the larger of the two characters at the bottom and double jump back to your start position. Then double jump to the left platform and over the top making sure to hug the right wall as you fall, the pickup is in the nook top left, double jump to it.

There are two pickups in 'Y+1, X+1'

Level 9.2 @0:04

From the start pass through the blue stripes and float over to the first pool and pass through the grey stripes. The pickup is at the bottom of the pool of water at the bottom right, fall into the water and make sure to push cn_LSr as the current will push you (I don't do this in my video)

Level 9.10 @0:34

From the start switch to the small block with the green stripe cn_R1/cn_L1 then follow the level up and to the left, keep going till you reach the top of the level and the pickup is near the top left of the level.

That's your last pickup which will unlock

Now all that's left is to complete level 9.10 to unlock.

Congratulations Thomas Was Alone is now complete!
