Hide-and-Goon-Seek (Henchman Hunt in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


US Version

I got a feeling the Family's goons might be lurking around here. I didn't want any trouble, so I've hidden in a spot where I can spy on them without being seen.

Do me a favor, will you, and tell me how many goons there are?

UK Version

"Ah'm afraid there might be some of that Family lot up ahead... There's no telling whit they'd do if they spotted me. Ah've taken up a hiding spot behind this wall, so's Ah can take a wee peek withoot being found.

Could ye please help me oot - jist how many henchmen are actually oot there?"

There's the leader! He's up on the balcony, toward the top right!

That's one.

UK Version

"There's the head henchman, upon the balcony taewards the top-right!

He's yer first one."

US Version

Those goons hide in the darnedest places! See that barrel at the bottom right shaking around? Sneaky...

UK Version

"They're hiding in places ye wouldnae even dream of! Take a look at that barrel in the bottom-right, there's something nae right with it..."

US Version

Unbelievable! It looks like there's one up on the roof at the top left!

Or is that just a hat? You'd better take a look.

UK Version

"They're hiding in awfully strange places! Over there on the top-left, Ah think Ah can see a hat...

Take a closer look!"

US Version

I'm sure there aren't more than 10.

UK Version

"Ah'd say there's fewer than 10 of them."



US Version

Too bad!

Try checking every nook and cranny.

UK Version

Too bad.

Check every nook and cranny!


US Version


There are nine goons creeping about.

UK Version

That's right!

"Crivens! Nine henchmen! Ah was right tae be afraid..."
