Glass Arrows is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.

Puzzle

Below the roller coaster lies a stack of see-through panels with red arrows.

Originally there were four panels, but someone's gone and taken one. Given that each arrow points in a different direction, can you tell which panel is missing? Choose from A to D.

It might be a bit tricky to work this out in your head, so try drawing it using the Memo Function.

If you draw each arrow a different color, it should be easier to work out.

The panels may be transparent, but each time they overlap, it becomes harder for light to pass through them.

One area of the arrows is noticeable darker than the rest. What can you conclude from this?

The dark-red area can only be created if there are three overlapping arrows, so the panel with the arrow pointing upward must be the one of the three on the stack.

Try to picture what shape would be left if you removed the up arrow.

In addition to the panel with an up arrow, the panel with an arrow pointing right is also lying on the stack.

See if you can work out the final panel to rule out.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad.

What does it look like when you place transparent pictures on top of each other?

Correct

Correct!

The arrow facing downward is missing.

Because the panels are transparent, the arrows get darker as more are placed on top of each other.
