This is the ninety-eighth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must dig a hole. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out the code to unlock the door by using the numbers attached to metal and wooden balls.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The clue is the key to this puzzle.

    Remember, there's a large glass water tank next to the door. How might that help you?

Hint Two
    Let's take a look at these balls with panels attached lying on the floor. The cords connecting the panels are all different lengths. Additionally, the balls are made of two different materials: wood and metal.

    How do these details fit in?

Hint Three
    Have you worked out what "ask the water" means yet?

    Putting all the balls lying on the floor into the tank will cast some light on the situation.

Super Hint
    Imagine putting the balls into the water tank and viewing them through the glass. The panels attached to the wooden balls will just float on the top, so you won't see them. The metal balls will sink, so you'll only see panels attached to those balls.

    The lengths of the cords also differ, so imagine what order the panels would appear in from top to bottom. Might this be the code to get in?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Think about the clue some more. What could "ask the water" mean?

[edit] When Completed

Correct! The door is open!

The code was 9594. If you drop the balls into the water tank, the wooden balls and their attached panels will just float on the top, while the metal balls will sink to the bottom, leaving the important panels floating in the middle.

The length of the cords will tell you the order of the numbers, so you have to enter them from top to bottom, the same way you would see the panels floating in the tank.

[edit] Solution

The code is 9594.

[edit] Progress

3420 Picarats and 209 Hint Coins.
