This is the fifty-ninth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Marco. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the longest route possible between points A and B.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    When solving this puzzle, many people think they have the answer on their first try, only to discover otherwise.

    Try to walk as much of the road as possible on your way to point B.

Hint Two
    The area that the boys are walking is a square that's more or less composed of long and short sections of road.

    After you've charted out your course and think you have the answer, take a quick look to see how much road you left untouched.

Hint Three
    Starting out from point A, head as far to the left as possible. When you reach the left border, start heading south.

    The longest path you can draw will form an S-shaped line through the middle of the town.

[edit] When Failed

Give it another shot!

As a general rule, you should try to cover as many of the roads as possible.

In the example above, it appears that the boy who walked the green path covered quite a bit of distance. However, as shown by the dotted lines, the roads this boy passed up on his way to point B add up to quite a distance.

[edit] When Completed

Nice work!

Speaking of leisurely strolls, have you been outside today? If it's sunny, why not go for a nice walk?

[edit] Solution


Take the path as shown.
