This is the eighty-fourth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the scorpion sign. In order to solve this puzzle, you must light the correct segments while following a certain pattern.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each circle has two lit segments. They may not look like it at first, but they do follow a pattern.

    Compare neighboring circles to see if you can work out the pattern.

Hint Two
    The two lit segments in each circle move according to two different rules.

    Count how many spaces each lit segment moves between circles.

Hint Three
    If you start with one circle and move clockwise around the sign, you'll notice that one of the lit segments is moving two spaces clockwise within the circle each time.

    What about the other one?

Super Hint
    Moving clockwise around the sign, the other lit segment is moving four spaces counterclockwise within the circle each time.

    There's no easy way to tell which segment is which, so you'll just have to compare the circles and work out where the lit segments go in the top circle.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Have a good look at the lit segments on each circle in turn.

[edit] When Completed


If you compare the circles going clockwise around the sign, one of the lit segments moves four places counterclockwise and other moves two places clockwise in each subsequent circle. So in the top circle, the two lit segments overlap and only one is lit.

[edit] Solution


Light the segment as shown.

[edit] Progress

2865 Picarats and 171 Hint Coins.
