A Duck of Tiles is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


A child made a picture of an adorable little duckling using three colors of small tiles. You want to re-create the picture, but you only have a set of large tiles that are each 3 x 3 squares.

Can you make the same duck out of the tiles you have at your disposal? You may overlap your tiles as many times as you like.

This puzzle is particularly tricky. These hints will give you a rough guide on how to solve it, but you'll have to work out the rest for yourself.

Start off by making the beak and foot. There's a long way to go.

Next, build up the head, the base for the eye, then the front half of the body.

While you place tiles to form the neck, you will be forming the small square for the eye at the same time.

Continuing from Hint 2, place tiles to form the duckling's tail and back. The line that runs from the back of its head to its tail can be made with a single blue tile at the end.

Lastly, finish off the duckling's win and thigh with yellow tiles, and you're done!



Quacking job!

You can actually complete the picture with one yellow tile left over. If you feel up to it, take another quack at it!
