Great Escape is a puzzle in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


Mysterious robed figures seem to be circling the area. Their lanterns allow them to see three spaces in front of them.

Guide Professor Layton to the bottom exit and guide Maya to the top exit.

Keep in mind that whenever either of them moves one space, so will the robed figures.

Get them both to their respective goals!

First, let's concentrate on the professor's escape. Maya will be safe just one space down from her starting point, so make sure to move her there first of all.

With Maya out of danger, you can turn your attention to the good professor.

Move the professor left and then down towards the bottom exit. You can get him close, but there's one patrolling figure who's not so easy to elude. Perhaps it's best to move one space up for now...

This might be a good time to switch it back over to Maya!

Move Maya up one space and back down. This should open up a clear path to the exit for the professor!

The path to the top exit is a bit more tricky. Maya has no direct route out, so you will have to go down and around the two logs on the left side.

Pay close attention to where the robed figures move. Sometimes moving back and forth is the best way forward.



Well done!

The professor and Maya managed to sneak their way out.

Now to escape the forest!
