A Slippery Surface 2 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.

Puzzle

This postie's round has just been doubled and he needs to shave some time off his route! The fastest way to make it to the next town is to go right across the frozen surface of the lake. Unfortunately, it's so slippery, the postie won't be able to stop unless he bumps into something. What's more, some parts of the ice are so thin, they'll break as he crosses, meaning he'll only be able to use them once.

Can you guide the postie and help him reach the other side of the lake without falling in?

Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

From the first rock the postman slides into, you've got no choice but to head downwards. After landing on the thin ice at the bottom of the lake, you're faced with a decision: right or left.

You think you should head left? Hmm. Think carefully about what happens when you choose the two directions.

From the thin ice mentioned in Hint 1, you have to go right. After that, slide upwards to the top of the lake and follow the route until you land on some more thin ice.

From this central patch of thin ice you can go up or down. Which will you choose?

If you go up after landing on the patch of ice mentioned at the end of Hint 2, you'll never reach the goal. Go down instead.

Now think about what you're going to do next.

After following Hint 3, you can go either right or left. The hole that's next to you makes it a very easy decision: left it is!

Next, head up to the top-left corner of the lake, and then slide to the right.

Now, with a single move, you'll end up right in front of your goal.

Solution

Correct

Ice cool!

Seems like a rather risky way to improve efficiency...
