This is the seventeenth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the sugar bowl. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the longest route that can be taken between the starting point and the nest, without taking the same path twice.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    When tracing out a path back to the nest, leave as few roads untouched as possible.

Hint Two
    Assuming the top of the screen to be north, from the point labeled Start, drag your stylus south and then go west at your first chance.

    At the next intersection, head north to the top of the map. When you reach a T intersection at the top of the map, head west again. When you hit a wall, take the road leading south.

Hint Three
    From the last point mentioned in Hint Two, head east at the first available point, and then take the first road you hit that heads south.

    If you've gotten this far, the rest should be a breeze.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about the puzzle and try again.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Perhaps all the heavy lifting kept this little ant from thinking about his path home. If only he'd thought about where he was going, he could have saved himself a lot of walking!

[edit] Solution


Map the route as shown.

[edit] Progress

130 Picarats and 19 Hint Coins.
