Baldi's Basics Wiki

Endless Mode is the secondary mode in the Baldi's Basics series. The goal is to collect as many notebooks as possible until Baldi catches the player.

Gameplay

Baldi's Basics Plus

Collect as many notebooks as you can before Baldi tags you! Baldi speeds up over time, but notebooks slow him down!
 
— Description, Baldi's Basics Plus

The player can choose either the "Random" level or the "Medium" level before starting Endless Mode. In the elevator, the floor acronym is "END", no matter which option they pick.

Levels
  • Random - Randomly generates a level with a custom or random seed. It is also possible to generate a seed by clicking on the high score.
    The map in Endless Mode - Medium.

    The map in Endless Mode - Medium.


  • Medium - Starts the level with a pre-generated medium-sized map.

Baldi's behavior is different than in the Hide-and-Seek mode. Collecting a notebook will slightly decrease his speed, emphasizing the goal to collect as many notebooks as possible, and allowing the player to avoid him longer in-game.

Baldi eventually speeds up more and more on his own, with collected notebooks slowing him down. After some time, Baldi will become so fast that he will be impossible to avoid. Therefore, in order to achieve a high score, the player must collect as many notebooks as possible while Baldi is slower. The longer the game lasts, and the more notebooks the player collects, the faster Baldi will become overall.

Upon starting, the gameplay is no different until the player reaches the third notebook. Instead of having an unsolvable third math question in Story Mode, each question is answerable, as well as all of the notebooks after. Aside from this, Baldi's behavior also changes. Answering all three problems correctly in a notebook will slightly decrease his speed, emphasizing the objective to answer as many math problems correctly as possible, and allowing the player to avoid him longer in-game.

While Baldi will still become faster should the player answer a problem incorrectly, the speed curve will gradually increase independently over time. Thus, he will eventually speed up more and more on his own, with correctly answered notebooks making him slower and slower. After a certain amount of time, Baldi's speed will become so fast that he will be practically impossible to avoid, meaning that in order to achieve a high score, they must get as many notebooks as possible while Baldi is still slow. The longer the game lasts, and the more notebooks the player collects, the faster Baldi will become overall.

Trivia

General
  • The notebooks make a sound when they respawn.[1][2]
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • In the current version, the word "Mode" on its name is not capitalized.
  • There are 7 characters in Endless Mode - Medium.
  • The Test Procedure event is absent in this mode.
  • In the game files, there are Small and Large values in the Endless Mode's list. It may imply that there will be more levels for the pre-generated maps, not just the medium one.
  • Prior to V0.3.3, each level used a different acronym. The acronym for the Random level was "ER" and for the Medium level, it was "EM".
Classic/Birthday Bash
  • The text that shows whenever the player gets a new high score.

    There is some red text that appears when the player collects more notebooks than their record. It reads "WOAH WOW KAZOW! THAT'S A NEW HIGHEST SCORE!".
  • In the icon, Baldi's ruler is untextured for an unknown reason.
  • When the player answers all three questions correctly in the 3rd notebook and onward, then the You Can Think Pad shows text that will either say "Keep up the good work or see me after class..." or "That's more like it...".
  • Baldi's Basics Plus Development Roadmap.png
    The notebooks from the icon are also used in the Baldi's Basics Plus development roadmap image.
  • In the icon, in a part from the green notebook on the bottom, a part of Baldi's right arm and head are missing probably because of a glitch in Anim8or.
Demos
  • Endless Mode is unavailable in all demos.

Glitches

Baldi's Basics Plus
  • In V0.3.3, no matter which option the player chose, the high score was always recorded in the Random level. That means, even after getting a high score in the Medium level, it was recorded in the Random level instead and the rankings in the Medium level were never updated.
  • In V0.3.4, Principal of the Thing would not scold the player for escaping detention in the Medium level.
