This is the sixty-fourth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. To access this puzzle, simply enter the Bell Tower and it will begin automatically. In order to solve this puzzle, you must make both red gems light up at the same time.

This puzzle can not be solved on the first try, the answer is revealed during the second attempt.


[edit] Hints

[edit] First Attempt

Hint One
    It seems as if two light sources will be needed in order to light both of the gems simultaneously.

    Is it really possible to light both with only one beam of light?

    Try lighting up one gem with the light.

Hint Two
    First work out which side would be best to start from.

    The light originates on the left, so starting from the left side would be easiest.

    Also, the two small gears at the top do not have to be moved.

Hint Three
    Try and bounce the light to the right side using one of the two large gears on the left.

    When properly rotated, the blue gems will reflect the light to the right side of the device.

Super Hint
    Rotate the gear on the bottom right by 90 degrees. When done correctly, the light will bounce off and shine straight on to the red gem.

[edit] Second Attempt

Hint One
    The large gear in the centre is especially important. Note that the blue gem will only reflect light when it is pointing upwards.

    Keep in mind that it is extremely important to change the direction of the two beams of light simultaneously.

Hint Two
    It has been established that the beams of light must hit both gems simultaneously.

    That being the case, the very last step should redirect both of the beams simultaneously to each red gem.

Hint Three
    The very last step in this puzzle will light both red gems at the same time.

    To accomplish this, turn the large gear in the centre when both beams of light intersect through the middle. Remember, the blue gem will only deflect light when it is in a vertical position.

Super Hint
    The beam of light on the left will be deflected a total of four times.

    The beam of light on the right will be deflected a total of five times.

    When they intersect through the centre gem, turn the centre gear and light up both gems!
