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

Puzzle

US Version

Three colors of small tiles were put up on a wall to make a fancy mosaic mural. You'd like to make something similar, but you only have large tiles that are 2 x 2 squares each.

Can you make the same design as on the mural using the large ties you have? You may overlap them as many times as you want.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

It seems hard because there aren't really any distinctive parts, but once you've worked out the pattern, it's a cinch.

Just keep the four white tiles in reserve for last.

There are a few ways to complete the pattern, but the easiest way is to form the green and orange squares in the corners one by one.

Start with the orange and green squares in the top-left corner.

Here's a more detailed explanation:

US Version

Start with an orange tile in the top-left. Place two green tiles, one overlapping the right half of the orange and then another overlapping the bottom half of the orange.

Now stick an orange tile one square down and to the right of the corner to finish the square. Use the same method for the bottom-right corner.

Now stick an orange tile one square down and to the right of the corner to finish the square. Use the same method for the bottom-right corner.

US Version

Use the method explained in Hint 3 to handle all four corners. You'll have to adjust it slightly when dealing with the top-right and bottom-left corners.

The center should have turned orange and green in the process, so now just finish by placing the last four white tiles!
