This is the one hundred and twenty eighth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mimi. In order to solve this puzzle, you must lay down trampolines to help the watermelon safely reach the basket, without them hitting a wall or the ground.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The way the watermelon bounces will depend on the distance it falls and the angle of the trampolines.

    First try it out to get a sense of how the watermelon bounces.

Hint Two
    Begin by trying to get the watermelon to bounce through the narrow gap between the small wall second from the top and the slanted one beneath it.

    The gap looks narrow, but it's surprisingly simple to bounce the watermelon through.

Hint Three
    OK, here's how to shoot the watermelon through the gap between the second and third walls from the top:

    You need to place a gently sloped trampoline at the same height as the fifth rung of the ladder.

    Once you work this out, you only need to place one more trampoline to get the watermelon over to your partner.

Super Hint
    An alternate solution is to bounce the watermelon between the two slanted walls. This is a bit tricky, but it makes for a great challenge!
