Fix the Fossil 2 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


Here's a fossil that's been broken up into bits. It had been fully reconstructed, but sadly, it was broken in an accident.

The fossil was originally a 5 x 5 square. Can you put it back together?

It's very fragile, so you're only permitted to move lines of five pieces horizontally or vertically. Put it in the center when you've completed it.

Good luck!

Getting back on track after making a mistake will be quite hard in this puzzle. Make good use of Undo.

You'll want to start off by moving a column up.

Continuing from Hint 1, move a row from the right to the left.

Continuing from Hint 2, move one column down. Next, move one row left. Now you just need one more move to solve it.

Here's a more specific explanation.

1. Move the second column from the right row one upward.
2. Move the third row from the bottom one column left.
3. Move the middle column one row downward.
4. Move the third row from the tow one column left.

Can you work out the last move now?




Excellent work. You've managed to put this rather complex fossil back together again.

That's one for the prehistory books!
