This is the twenty-ninth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the left stall. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which arrow is holding onto the candy.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Don't trust your eyes! This puzzle contains an optical illusion.

Hint Two
    Instead of looking at this one straight on, try rotating your Nintendo DS a little so that you have a diagonal view of the puzzle.

Hint Three
    Here's an interesting bit of trivia.

    This particular optical illusion is known as the Poggendorff Illusion.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It would appear you fell right into the trap this puzzle set for you.

[edit] When Completed

Good eye!

Arrow B is the one attached to the candy.

The reason this puzzle is tough for some people is because it contains a famous optical illusion. When you obscure a portion of a diagonal line with a straight shape, the two visible portions of the line appear disjointed from one another.

[edit] Solution


Arrow B is attached to the candy.

[edit] Progress

635 Picarats and 49 Hint Coins.
