This is the twenty-fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mr. Collins. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which caves the explorer must enter.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Compare the area just beyond the exits of each cave in the photos to work out where they were taken.

    In B, you can see some flowers past the exit. That's also the only one where you don't see any rocks in the background. Where does that fit in?

Hint Two
    You can see sand just past the exit in A. It follows that this must be between areas 3 and 4.

    C and D look similar, but in C you can only see a wall of rock and no cave entrances. That should narrow it down.

Hint Three
    You can work out the correct caves to go through by looking at what you can see of the exits.

    If you take a photo of the exit in a cave that bends right, the wall on the right will get in the way, obscuring the right-hand side of the exit. That means B must have been taken in a cave that bends right, so you can tell it's the one marked by a red line.

Super Hint
    In Hints 1 and 2, we determined that A was taken between areas 3 and 4, and B between 4 and 5. You can only see a wall beyond the exit in C, so that must have been taken between 1 and 2. That leaves D, taken between 2 and 3.

    We determined in Hint 3 that B is from a red-line cave. D is clearly from a straight cave, so it must be the yellow line. What about A and C?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Try again before he runs into one of those horrible traps!

[edit] When Completed


If you take a good look at the scenery in the distance of each photo, you can tell where they were taken.

The light will be on the left-hand side of a cave that bends right, and vice versa. With this in mind, you can work out the correct route.

[edit] Solution


Take the route as shown.

[edit] Progress

740 Picarats and 100 Hint Coins.
