Disappearing Act 6 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

Just as before, you can move any ball on the board below as long as it satisfies the following conditions:

  • To move, jump your selected ball over an adjacent space occupied by another ball into an empty space on the other side. You can't jump diagonally.
  • Once you've made the jump, the ball you jumped over disappears from the board.
  • To complete the puzzle, you must remove all balls from the board except for one.

OK, enough rules. Start getting rid of those balls!

US Version

You have quite a few balls to get rid of, so you'll have to do a lot of jumping. Just make sure you aren't choosing your moves at random, or you'll end up getting stuck before you finish.

Plan out your jumps so that you never leave any balls out away from the group where you won't be able to reach them later.

As you reduce the number of balls on the board, those remaining take on a configuration that you've previously solved.

If you've made it this far, this puzzle is in the bag for you.

You may have heard that proper peg solitaire players don't consider these puzzles complete unless the remaining ball ends up in the center space. One step at a time, though. Let's finish this puzzle first.
