Aliens? is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.


A famous space explorer has just discovered a new planet and landed on its surface to investigate it further.

During his three-hour investigation, he counted 379 male Octopleans, 439 female Octopleans, and 125 that had the features of both male and female Octopleans.

So right now, how many aliens are there on this new planet?

The whole planet is covered with Octopleans, but adding their numbers won't get you the answer you're after.

Perhaps you jumped to conclusions when considering answers for this puzzle.



Think again...

Don't waste time with difficult tabulations.

Consider what's really being asked here.


Right! The answer is, there's one alien, the explorer.

From the Octopleans' point of view, this strange visitor from another planet is as alien as they come.
