This is the forty-seventh puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gerard. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which exit the bandit can never take using his rules.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It's hard to get started on a puzzle that seems to present so many possibilities, but you'd be surprised at how much you can learn by simply trying out the various routes through town.

    The paths are littered with twists and turns, but if you try tracing any of the given paths, you can see how the bandit would make his way through town.

Hint Two
    To simplify the question, what you're really looking for is an exit that's positioned so that the bandit has to turn away from it every time he draws near.

    Do you see any place like that on the map?

Hint Three
    If you've tried any of the paths near the entrance the bandit came from, you know that the bandit can escape via A, G, F, and E.

    Your answer is one of the other three exits.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

This puzzle requires flexible thinking.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

As you can see from the diagram, if the bandit must turn every time he approaches an intersection, the way he can move through the town are set.

As a result, no matter how he approaches B, he'll never be able to leave through there.

[edit] Solution


The bandit can't leave through exit B.

[edit] Progress

1645 Picarats and 87 Hint Coins.
