This is the fifty-third puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Amelie Chelmey. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which stone to push in order for all the stones to fall.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by picking a stone at random and imagining what would happen if you pushed it over.

    If the trail of toppling stones gets stopped by another stone at some point, try seeing what would happen if you started by pushing the stone that halted your progress.

    That's right - you'll need to do a lot of visualising to solve this puzzle.

Hint Two
    You've no doubt visualised a fair few ways the stones will fall, depending on which one is pushed, and come across a problem: the three stones facing the centre. Not only will they not knock any other stones over, their positioning makes it difficult to knock them all over. Unless...

    Is there another stone that would guarantee toppling these three stones and all the rest?

Hint Three
    Look closely at the centre of the picture. Is there anything you notice? Look at the lighting in particular.

    The size and orientation of the shadow in the centre of the picture is quite unusual. What could it be?

Super Hint
    Whatever it is that's casting the shadow in the centre of the image must be absolutely enormous.

    Maybe it's that thing at the top right of the picture. That looks as though it could be big enough to cast a huge shadow like that.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Inspect the photograph very closely - every nook and cranny...

[edit] When Completed

A bumper harvest for you!

Pushing over the huge rock in the top right is guaranteed to make all the others topple over.

Looks like it's going to be a good year!

[edit] Solution


Circle the stone as shown.

[edit] Progress

1815 Picarats and 134 Hint Coins.
