Black Hat, White Hat is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


The black top hat below is made from six blocks. Using the same pieces, make a white top hate in the same spot!

The pieces can be moved and rotated with your stylus, but can't flip them over.

This puzzle might look familiar, but you can't flip these pieces over.

For starters, think about what a "white top hat" looks like.

If you move all of the blocks outside the frame, the frame itself becomes a white top hat! See how that works?

Now all you have to do is put the blocks around it to frame it in.

So you know what you need to do, but you don't know how to do it? Well, such is life sometimes.

Here's a hint: you can fit the two pieces with 180-degree bends around each end of the hat's brim.

The short piece with a 180-degree bend goes around the left side of the brim.

The long piece with a 180-degree bend goes around the right side of the brim.

The rest should be no problem now!




What a beautiful white top hat!
