Funky Hooks is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.


Watch out! Layton needs to get across this walkway, but some swinging hooks have made it a dangerous task indeed!

The hooks always swing back and forth across the same routes. Examine how they move, and plan Layton's steps carefully to get him safely across to the other side.

The first thing you need to do is have Layton take two steps to the right. Look closely at the direction each hook is pointing as you proceed.

There are many ways for Layton to make it to the goal safely from here. This is just one of them:

After those two initial steps, guide Layton towards the bottom of the screen. Don't worry about that hook that's coming after him - just get him moving!

Once he's reached the bottom of the screen, you can choose whether to have him head upwards or towards the right.

That hook directly above him should make this a fairly easy decision. Head right, towards the goal!

Move Layton as far right as you can, then one step upwards. There's a hood heading straight for him now, so get him out of the way by taking one step downwards and one step to the left. After that, move him another step to the left before heading upwards.

You may think that it's the long way round, but it's definitely a better option than getting hit in the face with a hook!



Nicely dodged!

Layton made it across safe and sound.
