This is the ninety-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. This puzzle will be accessed automatically once you enter the seventh room on the sixth level of the Akbadain Ruins. In order to solve this puzzle, you must tilt the Nintendo 3DS to slide the stepping stones, allowing Hershel to reunite with Randall.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    To begin with, you need to move a stepping stone to get Hershel onto the first walkway.

    It seems simple enough, but watch out for the stone in the bottom right. If that gets stuck in a hole, you'll never be able to reach Randall.

Hint Two
    Let's run through the first step.

    First, tilt your Nintendo 3DS backward. That should create a path to the walkway in the top-center of the screen. Move Hershel onto that walkway.

Hint Three
    Continuing from Hint 2, the next step is to bring up the stepping stone in the bottom-left corner next to the fixed stepping stone in the top-right corner.

    It's quite a long way, so be careful not to get it trapped in a hole on the way.

Super Hint
    For those who are struggling with this, here's the secret formula from start to finish:

    ↑ H ↓ ← ↓ ↑ → ↓ → ↑ → ↑ → ↑ H

    Starting with Hershel in his initial position, tilt your Nintendo 3DS in the direction of each arrow in turn. Where it say H, you'll need to move Hershel.
