A Glacial Gift is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


"My friend gave me this birthday present, but it was delivered in a block of ice!

The card that came with it said you can use five 150 ml cups of hot water to melt 30 g of ice, and that I'd have to work out how many cups of hot water are necessary to melt the 2 kg ice block that's around it."

Can you help Prima work out how many cups of hot water are necessary?

Pouring all this water over a present seems to be a lot of work.

If five cups of hot water only melt 30 g of ice, melting 2 kg is going to take forever! Surely Prima's friend doesn't want her to spend her whole birthday trying to get at the gift.

There must be another way. Think carefully!

Maybe you don't have to do any calculations to solve this puzzle.

Maybe there's a way of getting hold of that present that doesn't involve any work at all!

At least she can open her present inside. It's all warm and toasty, thanks to the fireplace.

Hey! What if...



Too bad.

There might be more than one way to melt the ice...


That's right!

Zero cups. All she has to do is leave it by the fire and wait.
