Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga: How To Solve The Yavin 4 Tile Puzzle

From the time it was announced at E3 2019 to its April 5, 2022 release, "Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga" has been through a long journey. The amount of time that has gone into its development makes sense given the scale of the game, which covers the entire 9 "Star Wars" movies involving the Skywalkers.

Though its production came at a cost, considering the work culture at developer Traveller's Tale, fans and critics have still found a lot to love about "Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga." Scores are strong on Steam and Metacritic, and fans are loving everything from the game's Easter eggs to a particularly quirky flying glitch.

"Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga" definitely delivers in terms of a massive universe with hundreds of characters and vehicles, plus 23 different planets each offering its own form of adventure. As much as the big thrills shine in the game, it's the tiny details that give it that extra charm. This is definitely the case with some of the game's hard-to-solve puzzles. When it comes to the Yavin 4 Tile Puzzle, players might find themselves, well, puzzled. However, they're in luck, because a few simple tips turn this brain teaser into a completed product.

Solving the tiles in style

According to multiple walkthrough sources — like Pop Pop Games and YouTuber Nuck Chorris – solving the Yavin 4 Tile Puzzle in "Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga" is actually quite simple. Basically, the puzzle is a 5x5 square made up of two-sided tiles. When the player stands or jumps on one tile, all the others around it flip over. The logic is easy enough to follow, but when it comes to piecing together the right strategy for flipping all of the pieces to the Rebel Alliance symbol side, that may not jump out as obvious at first glance.

However, there is an easy trick to completing the puzzle without any guesswork. First, players need to engage the levers near the puzzle to get it into its starting position. Next, they'll target the four corners without touching any other pieces. This will leave the outside tiles as well as the innermost piece flipped the correct way, but the tiles in between will still need some work. As skilled puzzlers will have already guessed, the next move is a one-and-done. A double jump onto the center tile flips those around it into the right direction, completing the puzzle.

In a game as vast as "Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga," sometimes little puzzles like this can turn into a big headache that impedes game progress. Now, it'll be back to adventures in a galaxy far, far away in no time.
