Chess Skirmish is a puzzle in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.


Two opposing sets of knight chess pieces are engaged in battle. In order to win, your chess piece must topple the enemy piece.

Chess knights move two squares forwards and one square perpendicular on each turn. The initial direction can be up, down, left, or right.

Be careful. The board is filled with pits and spaces that will move your piece in the direction shown.

This puzzle can be cleared in seven moves.

The trick is to use the moving panels to move to otherwise inaccessible spots.

Start by moving to the top right space. From there, you will find there are more movement options available to you.

Make your way to the moving panel below to make your right. This will place you in the space below.

Next, move up two spaces and left one space.

Done correctly, you will be able to move two spaces left and one space up. Your next move should put you in front of the enemy piece.

There are now two options: move one space up and two spaces left or move one space up and two spaces right.

Choose wisely. Only one of these will help move you to victory!



Well done!
