Looking Up is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


A pile of blocks has been carefully stacked. The image below is a view from the side. The perspective is also rotated in an unknown direction.

Gravity is acting on the blocks, so any block, not touching the ground or a block below it will faill.

When you're looking at the blocks from the correct angle, which direction, A, B, C, or D, is up?


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

When you examine the stack of blocks from each direction, can you find any unstable blocks? Look carefully.

Try turning the image and looking at it with each letter as the top. Keep an eye out for blocks with blank spaces beneath them.

If you look at the stack with B as the top, the small green square beneath the big red square would fail, so B isn't the answer.

If you keep looking at the image like this, you'll find the answer!

Look at the image with C as the top. Two of the small green squares would fall, so C is also not the answer.



Too bad!

Take a closer look next time.


You got it!

D is indeed up! When you look carefully at the stack from each angle, you can see which blocks would be pulled down by gravity. With the exception of D at the top, all the other positions would have falling blocks.
