Sheep Shearing Bat Attraction Cops & Robber

Bat Attraction is a weekly puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter.


The bats in this cave roost in a grid of four rows and five columns. These bats are unique in that any bat that flies from the roost will be joined by the bats vertically and horizontally next to it.

If two bats fly from the roost, what is the maximum number of bats that will fly away at the same time?


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Imagine what happens when a bat flies from the roost. The bat above, below, to the left, and to the right will fly away with it. What do you think will happen next? And then what will happen?

More bats will fly away than you may have expected.



Too bad!

Try to think it over again.



Twenty bats.

Any bat that flies away will be joined by its neighbors. These bats in turn will be joined by their neighboring bats, until they all have flown the roost.
