This is the ninety-eighth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Tweeds. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which symbol is part of the code.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Once you figure out the rule, it would be theoretically possible to create the 100th or 200th symbol in the sequence. Doing so, however, would be nearly impossible.

Hint Two
    Don't get distracted by the shapes of the symbols. There's only one feature of each symbol that you need to worry about.

    Take C, for example. It's possible to swap C with the fourth symbol in the sequence without breaking the code's rule. See if you can figure out what features these two symbols have in common.

Hint Three
    The symbols of this code represent numbers. In order from top to bottom, they represent 0, 1, 2, 3, 4...

    See if you can figure out how each symbol represents each number.

Super Hint
    Try tracing each symbol. For most of them, there will be points where you can't go any farther forward.

    The first symbol in the sequence has none of these end points and represents 0. THe next symbol has one end point, so it represents 1.

    How many end points would you expect the sixth symbol to have?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Don't be fooled by this puzzle's complex appearance. It's simpler than it looks.

[edit] When Completed


The number of end points on each symbol indicates the number that symbol represents.

The missing symbol in the sequence must have five end points and is, therefore, symbol D.

[edit] Solution

Symbol D is part of the code.

[edit] Progress

3910 Picarats and 279 Hint Coins.
