Fit for a King (A Kingly Cleanup in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter.

Puzzle

US Version

You have a job of cleaning a king's room in his palace. This king is quite meticulous and has declared that his room be cleaned in a very specific way.

There are numbers written on some of the floor tiles that show the order in which the tiles should be cleaned. Starting from tile 1 and proceeding from tile to adjacent tile in the correct order, can you find a way to clean all of the tiles without repeating any? To avoid dirtying the newly cleaned floor, the last tile you clean must be next to the door.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

There are several possible routes from tile 1 to tile 6. However, you can't pass over the same tile twice, so you should probably follow the edge of the room before you make a turn.

The path from tile 6 to tile 12 will look the same as the path from tile 12 to tile 18.

US Version

The path from tile 18 to tile 24 is a straight line.

UK Version

To clean the tiles between tile 18 and tile 24, you just need to follow a straight line.

US Version

If you treat the vertical line that runs down the center of the room as a mirror, then you can clean each side using the same zigzag pattern that you already created.

UK Version

If you treat the vertical line which runs down the centre of the room as a mirror, then the left side has the same zigzag pattern as the right. That should cover the whole room.


Solution

Correct

Correct!

US Version

And look at that! Cleaning the room in this pattern forms the Chinese character for the word "king."

It seems that the king is keen in languages, puzzles, and clean floors!

UK Version

Incidentally, cleaning the room in this pattern forms the Chinese character for the word "king". It seems that the king is as keen on language study as he is on puzzles and clean floors.
