Mobile

The controls menu in the iOS version of Baldi's Basics Classic and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash.

On mobile platforms (Android, iOS, etc.), due to having different functions, the controls cannot normally be customized. However, the player can still customize the controller setup (only on Android devices) and the UI size.

Below is a following list of buttons to touch/tap on:

Trivia

General
  • The player cannot look back while they are playing jump rope with Playtime or in TestRoom.
Baldi's Basics Plus
Classic/Birthday Bash
  • While the game is paused, the player can only look back.
    • In addition, on the mobile versions, all controls (except the run button on Google Play) can still be clicked and moved.
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • Before V1.4, it was difficult to customize the keyboard controls without the feature implemented. The old control list is as follows:
    • WASD - Move
    • Mouse - Look around
    • Left Click - Pick up objects, open doors, other interactions
    • Right Click - Use selected item
    • Scroll Wheel/1/2/3 - Change item selection
    • Shift - Run (Watch your stamina!)
    • Space Bar - Look behind you and wave goodbye to your friends!
  • In V1.4.1d, the player can only change the controller setup. Plus, there was a lack of the "ITEM" text in the item button.
    • Since V1.4.2, the player can also change the size and the height of the controls.
    • In V1.4.3 on Android, the automatic size option was removed, so the default size and height is now medium.
    • In the Google Play and the iOS version, the extra small option was added.
    • The controller setup section is not available in the iOS version.
Baldi's Basics - Field Trip demo: Camping
  • The player cannot customize the controls and there was a lack of item selection keys. In addition, nothing happens when right clicking on the mouse. Instead, the player can press the R key to discard logs and hold the ESC key for 1 second to close the game.
    • Despite the reminder screen saying that pressing the R key will drop the logs on the ground, those things are not seen anywhere, so they just disappear. This happens because "dropping" logs uses the same script as the one where It's a Bully and/or Arts and Crafters steal the player's logs.
    • The player could not discard logs in Baldi's Basics Plus prior to V0.3 because there were no controls for such action.

Glitches

Baldi's Basics Plus
  • In V0.3.5, the controls will be restored to default settings whenever restarting the program.
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • In V1.4.1d, the first mobile version, no controls were added in TestRoom. As a result, the player was not able to move.
    • This issue was fixed in V1.4.2 with the additions of controls.
    • Before the Google Play and the iOS version, the controls were always on normal size when in TestRoom.
    • In V1.4.3, the sensitivity was decreased. This issue was fixed in the Google Play and the iOS version.
  • In V1.4.2, the "ITEM" text only appeared in the item button when no item was selected.
  • In V1.4.3, all items did not appear in the item button. This was fixed in the Google Play and the iOS version.
  • In V1.4.3, even though the size is changed in the main menu, it turns back into medium when the game is started. This was fixed in the iOS and Google Play version.
