By the time you reach the Rooftops in The Pedestrian, you've got a good handle on the game's systems. The moment you step off the train for the final time, though, nothing will be the same until you complete your journey. The addition of paint makes the Rooftop's challenges some of the hardest you'll face.

If there's any point in The Pedestrian where players could use a helping hand, this is it. Our guide will get you through these brain-busters so you can reach the game's finale – it will be worth it!

Puzzle 53 – Paint Tutorial

The first puzzle you encounter after getting off the train introduces the green paint mechanic. The game doesn't clearly explain how it works. When a sign is painted, changing a connection that resets the puzzle will not reset anything inside that sign, including the Pedestrian.

  1. Connect the entrance sign to the sign with a dead-end.
  2. Connect the paint dispenser to the metal spout on the top of the dead-end sign. The sign will turn green.
  3. Walk through the door to the green sign.
  4. Change the door's connection to the exit sign.
  5. Walk through the door and jump up to reach the exit.
  6. Upon leaving the puzzle, you'll receive the Achievement "The Paint Works Better Than I Expected."

Puzzle 54 – Elevator

  1. Move carefully to the left, jumping over sawblades as necessary.
  2. Pull the lever at the left side of the room.
  3. Jump back over the sawblades and fall down to the bottom floor.
  4. Exit to the left.
  5. Use the trampolines to traverse the transition sign.
  6. The next sign contains a keypad. It works like the train controls.
  7. Use the buttons to make the keypad match the number on the sticky note.
  8. Once the keypad is set, use the trampoline to get back to the top and climb the ladder.
  9. Press the button at the top of the ladder to confirm the keypad entry. After an elevator ride in the real world, the gate will open.
  10. Proceed to the right.

Puzzle 55 – More Paint Basics

  1. After leaving the elevator, follow the only path available until you arrive at three signs with a paint dispenser.
  2. Paint the sign with the lever.
  3. Connect the entrance sign to the lever sign and pull the lever.
  4. Return to the entrance.
  5. Disconnect the door and connect the entrance and exit signs.
  6. Since the lever sign is painted, the lever should remain on.
  7. Go through the door and use the trampoline to reach the exit.

Puzzle 56 – Twice The Paint

  1. After traversing some transition signs, you'll arrive at two signs and two paint dispensers.
  2. Paint both signs
  3. Pull the lever to activate the platform and the laser.
  4. Place the arch over the exit sign – put it near the bottom so you don't pass through into the laser.
  5. Go through the arch to reach the exit sign.
  6. Disconnect the entrance sign from its paint dispenser. This should turn off the laser without sending you back to the start.
  7. Jump up the platforms to reach the exit.

Puzzle 57 – So Many Signs, So Little Paint

  1. This puzzle has three paintable signs, but only one paint dispenser.
  2. Start by connecting the door directly below the Pedestrian to the only door it matches.

  7. Reconnect the paint dispenser to the sign you're now occupying.
  8. Connect the door in your sign to the door above the exit.
  9. Walk through the door and drop down to the exit.

Puzzle 58 – Levers and Keyholes and Paint, Oh My!

  1. Connect both doors of the entrance sign to both doors of the lever sign.
    1. This will create a criss-cross so you'll only be able to move through one door at a time.
  2. Paint the lever sign.
  3. Go through the right-hand door in the entrance sign. This should take you to the lever.
  4. Pull the lever, then return to the entrance sign.
  5. Reposition the entrance and lever signs so you can pass through the door to your left.
  6. Go through the door. You'll find yourself in the empty room on the right side of the lever sign.
  7. Disconnect the door you came through and connect it to the sign with the key.
  8. Walk through the door, pick up the key, then return to the painted sign.
  9. Disconnect the door again and connect it to the exit sign.

  12. Puzzle 59 – Water Tower

    1. Use the trampoline to bounce to the top of the sign.
    2. Climb up the ladder to reach the next sign.
    3. Ignore the button for now and go down the ladder on the right side of the sign.
    4. Reposition the box so it's directly over the small platform under the laser.
    5. Climb back up to the previous sign and press the button.
    6. Go back down the right-hand ladder. The box is now blocking the laser.
    7. Use the rightmost trampoline to get the key.
    8. Go all the way back to the entrance sign and open the locked door.
    9. Pull the lever that was behind the locked door and climb back up the ladder.
    10. Use the new platform to reach the exit in the upper left.

    Rooftop Hub

    After the water tower, you'll climb down a ladder to reach a sign suspended from a crane. Unlike the previous hubs, this one requires you to get the key first before you can search for the other components.

    Puzzle 60 – How To Get The Key And Activate The Crane

    1. From the hub, go through the bottom-left door with the sticky note depicting a key.
    2. You'll come to a fork in the road. The left-hand path leads to the key, but the right-hand path leads to a box you'll need to get the key to the hub.
      1. See below for walkthroughs of both paths.
    3. Once you have both the key and the box, jump onto the box and use it to return to the hub.
    4. After bringing the key back to the hub, use the trampoline to reach the locked door.
    5. Press the button to reposition the crane.
    6. After a cutscene, the gates will open. You can now search for the fan and the wire.
    7. Right Path: The Box

      6. Use the box to reach the lever and pull it.
      7. Bring the box back to the entrance sign, then return without it to the painted lever sign.
      8. Disconnect the doors to reposition the box, then re-connect them the same way (with the lever sign leading to the bottom door).
      9. Push the box onto the trampoline without bouncing up yourself.
      10. Return to the painted sign.
      11. Reconnect the paint dispenser to the entrance sign. This will send you back to the refresh point.
      12. Drop down and push the box through the exit.

      Left Path: The Key

      1. Connect the entrance sign to the sign with the locked door.
      2. Connect the ladders in the locked door sign to the sign with the key and the paintable sign with two doors.
      3. Paint the sign you've just connected.
      4. Connect the exit sign to the painted sign.

      11. Instead of using the key, carry it to the left into the painted sign.
      12. Drop down to the bottom-left door and walk through it to reach the exit. You may need to reposition signs so the door works.

      Puzzle 61 – How To Get The Wire

      1. The right-hand exit from the crane leads to a chalkboard where the wire sits well out of reach.
      2. You'll need to get two boxes; one from the left path and one from the right.
        1. See below for walkthroughs of each path.
      3. Once you have both boxes, position one of them on the center of the trampoline.
      4. Press the button to launch the box upwards.
      5. Place the second box in the exact same position, and press the button again.
      6. The boxes will stack two high, allowing you to reach the platform above them.
        1. If you get the positioning wrong, push the boxes over the edge and try again.
        2. Stand on the trampoline yourself and press the button.
        3. Climb the boxes to get the wire, then return to the hub.
        4. Right Path

          1. Start by arranging the signs so that you can easily tell which switches pair with which mechanisms.
            1. We recommend putting the main sign on the left, with the smaller signs in a loose diagonal on the right.
            2. Place the laser switch on top, the pushers switch in the middle, and the trampoline switch on the bottom. That way the reminder lines don't cross.
          2. Paint the sign with the laser lever and connect it to the main sign.
          3. Drop down to the bottom level and go through the door.

          8. Go to the bottom level of the sign and push the box through the door.
          9. Use the box to reach the button and press it.
          10. Go to the left and grab the key.

            8. While you are falling, enter Arrangement Mode and disconnect the paint from the smallest sign.
              1. Be sure to do this after you've cleared the deactivated laser so you don't get zapped.
              2. Reattach the paint dispenser to the exit sign.
            9. Connect the ladders and return to platforming mode.
