This is the first puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Stumble. In order to solve this puzzle, you must untangle Stumble from the balloon strings.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    When you switch the strings around, they move in a very particular way. Try touching everywhere and just see what happens until you get the hang of it.

    Don't worry if the strings get tangled up beyond all recognition. You can touch Restart as many times as you like.

Hint Two
    When you touch an orange point to switch the strings around, pay attention to the green points near it.

    The green points to the top left and bottom left of the orange point swap with those on the top right and bottom right.

    This also indicates how the strings move. Look carefully.

Hint Three
    Here's some more specific advice to get you started

    First, touch the orange point in the top-right corner. This will untangle one of the strings.

    That leaves only three.

Super Hint
    Following on from Hint 3, the next orange point to touch is the one in the center.

    Now if you just touch one more point, the strings will be completely untangled.
