Lives as shown from the right as power tubes.

A life is a play turn that the player has in Baldi's Basics Plus.


In Hide-and-Seek and Explorer Mode, the player starts with three lives in each level, and they are represented as green tubes as seen from the right side of the elevator. If Baldi catches the player, the player will be sent back to the start of the same level and one of the tubes in the elevator will disappear, but the map will stay the same. Running out of lives will result in a game over and sends the player back to the title screen, and the levels upon starting are randomized, unless they enter the previous seed to play the game.

In Endless mode and Challenges, the player only has one life.


  • Lives were first considered by mystman12 in his Kickstarter reply on September 19, 2019.[1] They are later first imported in the Kickstarter exclusive demo.
  • Even though Endless mode has one life, there are strangely two tubes instead of one in the elevator.
  • Although the zero lives texture is found in the game files, it is currently unused.
  • When looking at the outside of the elevator, even if the player has less than three lives, there are always three tubes on the right side. It is because there is only a three-life texture for the right wall of the elevator's outside view.


  • Since Baldi's Basics Plus V0.3.5, the amount of lives are not reset after completing a floor. The player still has three lives, however.




  1. "I will be making some improvements to the map for sure. I plan on adding a full map screen along with the current quick map, where you'll be able to scroll around and zoom out. I also plan to add more detail to the map overall, so you can see details such as where items are located, which rooms are cleared, where obstacles are, etc. As for revealing maps, the areas you've revealed in a level will remain revealed on repeated attempts at a level until you get a game over (The whole life system I'm considering is still up in the air, but that's where my mind's at right now), you'll be able to buy complete maps for levels in the shop, and I also just came up with an item that will help player's more quickly fill out their maps." - mystman12.
