We know that Celeste tells us that we don’t need to collect every strawberry, but who can resist the challenge?! It’s not easy to 100% this game, but that’s where we come in! Our strawberry guides aim to outline every single strawberry that you can find with images and the occasional video (for when it just gets too complicated to explain with words). So, let’s get into it, shall we?
For this first strawberry, jump onto the spring button. Once you are airborne, veer off to the left so that you are directly underneath the strawberry and then dash upwards. This one may seem easy, but trust me, they get harder.
Make your way over to the right side of the screen. Drop down, and without using your dash, hold ZR and grab onto the lower part of the right wall. When you’re ready, kick off from the wall, grab the strawberry and then use your boost to grab onto the wall that is parallel to the one that you just jumped from. Make your way back up by jumping from one side to the other until you are back up on the flat surface that you initially jumped off of.
In the next room, if you notice the sign that has an up arrow with a line through it, that means that if you try to jump and dash toward the strawberry from below, then it’s going to fly away (who knew strawberries could fly…). Instead, you have to make your way to the right of screen and jump from those platforms. But look out, they’ll crumble if you’re not quick enough. You don’t have to use the highest crumbling platform, and instead just jump from the second highest platform and cling onto the wall of the floating island in the middle and climb up. From there, make your way to the other side, drop down and collect your strawberry.
When you proceed upwards, take a left and you’ll enter a side room with another strawberry. In this frame, make your way to the middle section and jump up to the first step. From there, jump and grab onto the wall on the right and then kick off and dash upwards to land on the wooden platform. Then, jump onto the spring and maneuver your way over the spikes and fall between the other spikes through that narrow gap. Be careful when you fall, because if you keep falling, you’re going to land on the spikes down the bottom. What you want to do is use your dash at the last second and dash right to the strawberry and to safety.
Once you make it back to the frame that you were in before, you may think that there is no strawberry to collect. However, there is one in the top left hand corner waiting for you. What you want to do is stand on the conveyor belt platform, and as it shoots upwards, use that momentum to jump at the last second to propel yourself upwards. As you are airborne, move over to the left towards the floating platform and hang on to the right side of it for dear life. Climb up a bit and as you jump off, dash up-left and grab that strawberry.
You may think that you just need to proceed through to the top right of this section. However to get another strawberry, make your way to the bottom right of the frame and dash into the wall to uncover a hidden area.
Once you enter, you’ll want to jump down and hang on to the wall on the left. Give yourself a bit of space to jump from it and hang on to the top-left side of the conveyor belt. As it moves, jump at the right time again and it will propel you over to the strawberry. To get back, just jump off to the left and dash up-left through the wooden platform in the middle of the frame.
Now we’ll make our way to the previous frame and go up. We will then be presented with this screen…
First off, head through the left exit into a room with a dash diamond. These diamonds will allow you an extra dash in mid-air. So jump off the platform and dash up-left, fall onto the diamond and dash again to safety. From here, you can go left and meet a main character, but to get the strawberry, we’ll want to go up.
As you proceed through this room, be mindful of the spring in front of you (it got me the first time). Jump over that and use the next spring to propel yourself upwards and veer off to the left a bit. Dash up-left over the spikes and collect the diamond, then dash up-left again onto the wooden plank. Now go grab that strawberry!
Go back to the screen where we went left and make your way to the longer wooden platform on the bottom right of the screen. Dash into the wall to reveal another hidden area. Here is another strawberry!
Make your way through the next screen (as there are no strawberries here) and then you’ll be in a room with two conveyor belt platforms. Now this part is tricky, so perhaps a little stretch before you attempt it may help…
See that arrow above? Well that’s where you want to go. Jump onto the first platform and propel yourself to the next one, but try not to go too far right as when that platform goes up, it’ll squash you. As it propels you upwards, you want you’ll want to jump to the left, then dash up-left and grab onto the wall to climb up onto the wooden plank. Jump and dash over to the left-hand platform and proceed.
This one requires you to be mindful of how long you hold onto the sides. Move forward and use the spring to propel yourself upwards and cling onto the right wall. Quickly move up and jump to the side of the conveyor platform. As it’s about fall down, kick off it back onto the right wall and cling onto it again. When the conveyor platform is down, jump left and over the top of the spikes to land safely on the other side.
Now, grab onto the right side of the platform and when it moves, jump and cling on to the right wall above it. When the platform moves back, move down and grab onto the left side of it. When it moves, you’ll be able to make your way up onto a wooden platform. Make your way up to the top left of the screen, and proceed to the next frame.
Jump and dash from one platform to another and make your way to the strawberry next to the computer. And watch the pretty birds (ooh, pretty!). Actually, you really do need to watch the pretty birds, as this is how to get this chapter’s Crystal Heart. We’ll have our full Crystal Heart guide up very soon.
Go back the way you came and in the next frame, go up and over just to drop down as the crumbling bricks fall.
Now that you’re back, jump into the hidden area that we found before (just above where the sign was), make your way up and through to the next frame.
Now if you look closely at this one, you can see that there is a crumbly wall in the top-left hand corner of the frame (all those years of playing Zelda has finally paid off!). Jump onto the spring and dash onto the platform. Dash into the wall and reveal another hidden area.
This strawberry looks pretty self-explanatory, but in case you can’t figure it out, jump to the left and dash up-left, picking up the diamonds and dashing again until you get the strawberry. But don’t be in a hurry to get back, you still need to be safe on land to be rewarded with the strawberry. Cling onto the wall and wait for the diamonds to reappear and make your way back to the entrance.
But wait, we’re not done here yet! Jump and grab onto the wall on the right, then jump and dash onto the floating island. Can you see the crumbling part in the wall? Dash up into it and proceed to the next area.
There are no strawberries here so proceed to the top right and through to the next frame.
There’s your strawberry! Fall down, dash up-right, grab onto the dry wall and climb up it. Fall off the wooden platform to the right, collect the strawberry and dash between the spikes into the diamond. Dash again up-right past the spikes and there we go!
In this next room, dash onto the side of the ice platform. As it is about to fall, jump again onto the platform on the top left. Do a leap of faith to the right and dash onto the three stones hovering. Before they come crashing down jump and dash upwards and land on that tiny little wooden plank next to the traffic lights in the background. Make your way upwards and onto the next secret(ish) area.
Jump and grab onto the left side of the conveyor platform, but be sure not to jump off of it until it completely stops (otherwise you’ll be projected up into the spikes at the top). Jump off to the left and grab onto the right side of the other conveyor platform. When that stops, jump over it to the left and dash right (or grab onto the wall to the left and jump right over the spikes) just before you’re about to hit the spikes.
Now make your way back to the previous frame, but do not move on as we are not done here yet! Do you see that tiny little gap at the bottom of the screen? Yep, that’s where you want to go! Jump down onto the three crumbling stones, jump to the left and time your dash to the right perfectly.
Now this hidden area is all about quick movement! Jump off the wooden plank onto the first conveyor platform. Before that one shoots up, jump to the next one, then the next one, and then get the strawberry and cling on to the wall. Wait for the platforms to come back down and do the same thing to the left of screen. Make your way back up to the previous frame, use the spring to jump up onto the stones, dash up to the plank and move onward to the next frame.
Now this next one is tricky, so we added a video below to show you. But to put it into words, make your way down and cling onto the right side of the wall below you. Jump right and dash onto the conveyor platform. Move over to the right of the platform and as it shoots up, at the last second you want to jump slightly to the right and use that momentum to propel Madeline into that strawberry. Don’t use your dash, because you’ll need that for when you come down. Dash to the right onto the next conveyor platform and let that shoot you up through the spikes and onto the platform and to safety. Phew!
In the next frame, the strawberry is in a very awkward spot. You’ll need to be very quick and precise with this one, so try not to get discourage if it takes you three (or thirty) tries. Jump and cling on the left hand side of the conveyor platform. As it gets to the end, climb up to the right side of the wall just below the wooden plank. As the conveyor makes its way back, you’ll need to drop down and cling onto the right side of it. It’ll move back to the right again which you’ll then need to jump off to get the strawberry. Cling onto the wall and jump back onto the side of the platform. When it starts to move back, make your way up and to safety.
Proceed to the next frame and do you see that strawberry to the right of screen? Let’s not worry about that one just yet… instead, jump off the first plank and dash up through the plank above. Cling on the the right side of that conveyor platform and wait for it to finish moving. Don’t let it project you, but instead quickly jump up and over the spikes so that you’re on the left hand side of it. Before it comes back to squish you, go left, jump up and proceed to the hidden area above.
In this part, jump onto the middle of the conveyor platform and at the last second, jump and let it project you upwards through the spikes and then dash that last bit. Make your way to the left and up to the next frame.
To get that strawberry, you’ll need to jump up, dash, and cling onto the side of the platform conveyor belt. But before making your way to that strawberry, there is ANOTHER hidden area that is revealed behind the conveyor platform that has this chapter’s B-Side Tape. For info on how to get that, we’ll have our guide up on B-Side Tapes very soon.
Now, back to the strawberry! Jump, dash, and cling onto the conveyor platforform and jump off at the last second so that it flings you aaallllllll the way over to the other side.
Now jump down to the previous frame, but we’re not finished with this side part yet. Make your way past the conveyor platform and go through to the left side of the screen. Jump and dash to the left onto the spring button. As that shoots you up, make your way to the left a bit and then dash again up through the plank and to safety. Jump down to the left and land on the small platform that has no spikes and a sign is that’s pointing upwards. Jump off that platformto the left and dash up, cling on to the icy side of the wall and make your way up.
Down below in the next frame, you’ll see a sweet sweet strawberry. Jump down and move to the right, making sure you do not use your dash to collect it as you will need it to come back up. Cling on to the side of the wall, kick back off of it and dash up back to safety.
Make your way back to the frame with the conveyor platform and then go back down to where we initially started this adventure off the beaten path. Step onto the crumbling stone to the right and fall down in front of the conveyor platform. Cling onto it, project yourself over to the other side and cling onto the wall. pull yourself up onto the plank on the left hand side and take a nice deep breath. Jump up and to the left, make your way around to the right and dash upwards onto the other plank where the strawberry is.
To proceed, make sure that you go right before you go up, because once you go up, you cannot come back.
In here, you’ll need to walk off the plank and land on the conveyor platform. Time the jump and leap over to the crumbling stones on the bottom right hand side of the screen. Jump and cling onto the right wall and make your way up to the right floating island. Use the spring button, collect the strawberry and dash onto the middle platform. Now jump your way back to the plank and proceed through to previous frame.
NOW you can jump back up and make your way up to where the big plank is up the top. Proceed upwards…
Jump to the right, dash up and cling to the wall without spikes on the left. Kick off from that wall, collect the diamond and dash onto the plank to the right. Jump and dash to the left and land on the middle platform. Now jump to the left and fall until you’re just about to hit the spikes; before you do, dash to the left and cling onto the wall. Climb up and jump onto the little platform. Then proceed further upwards.
In this frame, jump onto the spring button and cling onto the wall on the left. Make your way up past the spikes, jump to the right, dash and cling onto the left side of the conveyor platform. After it moves up, kick off and land on the crumbling rocks, then quickly jump to the left and dash to safety. Proceed to the left and then up.
In this frame, jump onto the first step and the jump to the right. Dash upwards, cling onto the wall and climb upwards to the plank. If you cling onto the rectangle that seems a bit off, make sure to jump from it quickly as it’ll fall after a few seconds. This is important to remember, as there are other ones just like it. There is a hidden area to the top-left, just behind the other odd-looking rectangle. Jump and cling onto it, let it fall but jump back to safety so that you don’t go down with it. Now proceed through to the hidden area.
Jump and cling onto the wall on the right. Kick off and dash from one diamond to another, grabbing the last strawberry along the way.
Now make your way back to the previous frame, make the rectangle fall again and jump and dash over to the floating island. Cling onto the right side of the rectangle and fall down with it. Jump and dash from it and proceed to the next room.
Jump onto the spring button and cling onto the right side of the conveyor platform. Jump at the last second so that it projects you far to the right. Dash at the last second again and cling onto the left side of the other conveyor platform. When that shoots upwards, jump up at the last second and project yourself up to safety. Jump up through the upper plank, fall down and dash up-left, and then repeat over to the far left and proceed upwards. The cutscene will begin and we are done with Chapter 1 – Hooray!
Chapter 2 shouldn’t be too far away, so stay tuned for more!
