Cluttered Cans 2 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

Puzzle

US Version

Four canned-food products are randomly stacked up. You need to rearrange them into stacks of the same product.

However, if you want to move a can that has cans on top of it, you have to move them all at once. Also, you can't have more than six cans stacked up at a time.

Sounds easy, right? Oh...one more thing. You have to do it in 14 moves or fewer.

UK Version

Four different types of tinned food are randomly stacked up. You need to rearrange them into stacks of the same food.

However, if there are tins on top of the tin you want to move, you have to move them all at once. Also, you can't have more than six tins in a stack.

Not too hard, right? Oh...one more thing: you have to do it in 14 moves or fewer.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

There are several ways to solve this puzzle, so start moving those cans around and see what you end up with.

It shouldn't be too hard to get to a point where a few more moves will do it.

The 14-move limit definitely makes things a little tricky. And don't forget that you can't stack up more than six cans at a time. Also, don't get carried away stacking up the same type of can every chance you get, because it's going to cost you moves in the long run.

Instead of stacking up the same type of can every chance you get, it's better to think about what type of cans you should stack in each row.

Whenever possible, you want to move as many cans together as possible at a time. Of course, sometimes you have to move just one can at a time.

From left to right, think of the stacks as the first, second, third, and fourth.

Move the fish from the fourth stack to the first stack. Move the peaches from the second stack tot he fourth stack. Move the ham from the third stack to the second stack. Move the fish from the third stack to the first stack...

You can take it from here!
