Hershel vs Mummies! is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


Two mechanical mummies have whirred into action within the ruins!

The mummies are moving in to attack Hershel, traveling along the lines on the floor tiles. Get ride of them by leading them into the pit!

You'll need to get them to fall into the pit from the tile immediately above it.


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

First, go right from the start point to get to a safe place where the mummies can't get you.

From there, you can watch their movements and examine the panels, allowing you to work out how to create a path that will drop them in the pit.

There's no single solution for this puzzle. You just need to get used to the unusual control method and master how to move the tiles around.

Here's an example. From the start point, go right, down, right, up, left, down, right, down, and then wait. The bottom mummy will fall into the pit.

Just be careful the other fiend doesn't get you.

Once you've dispatched the first mummy by following Hint 3, move in the following way: left, up, left, up three times, right, down, down, left, up, right, down, and then right.

Just keep an eye on the mummy as you move. Otherwise, you might have trouble getting it to fall into the pit.



Nice work!

Congratulations! You defeated those mechanical menaces!
