[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Here's a little pearl of gumshoe wisdom.

    The best way to understand something isn't to study it intently from one perspective. Instead, try to approach the problem from a variety of angles.

Hint Two
    When you feel like you've seen all there is about a case, sometimes upending everything can give you a new view on matters.

    Have you ever considered upending your DS?

Hint Three
    Hold your DS upside down and take another look at the note.

    Do you notice anything about the note now?

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Be sure to examine the note from all angles.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

If you flip the note upside down, you'll notice that the numbers resemble letters and that those letters form legible sentences. The message recorded there is "Bill is boss. He sells oil."

[edit] Solution


Bill is the culprit.

[edit] Progress

2155 Picarats and 117 Hint Coins.
