Solving the purple & white pillars

I have encountered two kinds of pillars in the game: I’ve solved the vibrating type, but I’m having trouble solving the white or purple pillars (that have floating dots in their hollowed tops).

How do I solve these pillar puzzles?

  • What's the secret of the secondary owl room off of the water tower room?
  • What are the rainy “giant owl” room's secrets?
  • Can you fly somehow?
  • What do we do with the U-shaped tuning fork pillars?
  • How is the number / tetris code in Fez intended to be solved?
  • Advice on the red lava level
  • How do I solve the clock room?
  • 3 Heart Cube Pieces: What next?
  • How can the shortcut doors be used effectively?
  • How is the number / tetris code in Fez intended to be solved?
  • How is the Monolith puzzle in Fez supposed to be solved?
  • Can you fly somehow?

    Upon completing the game, you’ll unlock New Game+, which transfers your stats and adds first-person view after the intro.

    Near a purple or white pillar, go into first-person view and look for a string of white tetrominos (Tetris blocks). They can be converted to buttons with the tetromino cipher.

    If the white string is vertical, read it with your head tilted to the right. Then convert the tetrominos and punch them in. The sequence should be about eight units long, and unique for each game. An anticube will appear above the pillar.

    Forest pillar and tetromino string

    Here are the codes, if you’re lazy:

    • Lighthouse purple pillar: ↑ LT RT ↑ LT ↑ RT ↑
    • Forest white pillar (first): → RT ← LT ← ↑ ↓ A
    • Forest purple pillar (second): LT A RT ↑ ↓ LT RT A
    • Forest white pillar (third, near temple warp zone): ← ← ↓ ↓ → → ↑ ↑

    The U-shaped tuning fork pillars work differently.
