This is the fifty-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must investigate the bedside lamp. To complete the puzzle, you must determine the shortest route possible for the ant to reach the sugar cube.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Where are the places with no crickets?

Hint Two
    If you only go by what you can see, you won't be able to find the shortest route. Think about what you could do if you were an ant.

Hint Three
    If there's a top, there's always a bottom.
    The crickets are only on top of the board.

Super Hint
    Ants can walk on the underside of surfaces too.
    Let's help this little chap find the shortest route.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

Ants are clever creatures with some underhand tricks.
Try imagining the shortest route it would take.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

The shortest route is a straight line on the underside of the board where there are no crickets. Ants are wily creatures.

[edit] Solution


Take the route as shown.

[edit] Progress

2180 Picarats and 148 Hint Coins.
