Horsing Around is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.


You have four photographs of a horse running around four straight, parallel roads that cut through a forest. Each photograph shows the horse running along a different road at a different time of day.

Have a look at the photographs and see if you can work out which tree, A to F, is the closest to the camera.

Touch the icon on the tree you think is the nearest to submit your answer.

The four photographs were taken at different times of day, but they were all taken from the same place.

Focus on the fact that the four straight, parallel roads run between the trees...

All the threes look the same, which makes things difficult, but if you start eliminating every tree that appears to be behind the horse in any picture, you can quickly narrow down the possibilities.

The bottom-left picture shows the horse running in front of tree F, so you know that one isn't closest to the camera.

The top-right photo shows the horse running in front of tree A, so it can't be that one either.

Now, repeat the same process with the other two photographs.

In the top-left photo, the horse runs in front of tree B, meaning that it can't be the correct answer. In the bottom-right photo, the horse runs in front of both tree C and tree D.

There's only one tree the horse doesn't run in front of in any of the photos. That one must be the one nearest to the camera!



Too bad.

Carefully compare which trees are in front of others across all the photos.


You're galloping for glory!

E is the three that's closest to the camera.
