Back to the Chamber is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


The mystery pillars return! The mechanism will activate when the arrows on each pillar point to the center.

However, the pillars will only turn if Layton and Angela step on opposing buttons at the same time. When you have Layton press a button, Angela will press the one opposite. Also, keep in mind that they won't be able to press the same buttons twice in a row.

The way the buttons cause the pillars to rotate has changed for this puzzle. Try experimenting to see what happens.

By the way, you can solve this puzzle with just six sets of button presses.

There are a total of eight buttons, but since Angela will always press the button opposite the one you choose for Layton, there are only four possible ways to make changes on the top screen.

Learn how to move the pillars, then think carefully about which buttons to press in order to move the arrows. It will take you more moves than last time, so you won't find the answer through sheer luck.

There are several ways to solve the puzzle.

Here's a tip though: if Layton and Angela press the top-left and bottom-right buttons, they shouldn't press the top-right and bottom-left buttons. The reverse applies as well.

Have Layton press the top button twice and the far right button three times. Then there's only one other pair of buttons that needs to be pressed to finish the job.

The order in which the buttons are pressed doesn't matter, but remember that they can't press the same buttons twice in a row.




If you can solve this puzzle, then there isn't an ancient riddle around that stands a chance against your powers of problem solving!
