This is the seventieth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Esther. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which colored pencil should be moved to help the ant reach the goal.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The layout of the pencils is complicated, to say the least.

    Don't just think about which colored pencil you could move. Also consider where you would move it to.

Hint Two
    You can't move any of the plain pencils that make up the sea of green, but you are allowed to move any of the colored pencils.

    Look very carefully, and consider your options.

Hint Three
    You can pick any colored pencil at all and move it wherever you like. No one can raise any objections, because the puzzle doesn't specify any colored pencils you can't move or any places you can't put them.

Super Hint
    If you can move whichever colored pencil you like, then you should be able to move the one with the ant on top straight into the bottom-right corner. The ant can then just saunter along to the goal without any hassle.

    Which colored pencil should you move if you want to carry the ant along with it?

[edit] When Failed

Well, that was an anty climax.

Are you wondering if you can move the ordinary pencils as well? Sadly, you can't!

[edit] When Completed

You're sharp!

It's the pink pencil the ant is standing on. If you move it to the bottom-right corner, the ant can walk straight to the goal and be reunited with its friend. So much for that sea of pencils!

[edit] Solution

Move the pink pencil.

[edit] Progress

2340 Picarats and 157 Hint Coins.
