No-Go Arrows is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

Puzzle

US Version

Chart a path from the starting square in the top-left corner to the ending square in the bottom-right corner.

You can move horizontally or vertically, but you can't move in the direction that the arrows on each square are pointing. Also, you can't use the same square twice.

Can you make it to the green flag? Touch each square to chart your path!

UK Version

Go from the start point in the top-left to the green flag in the bottom-right, moving horizontally or vertically.

However, you can't move in the direction the arrows are pointing and you can't go over the same square twice.

Can you make it to the green flag? Touch each square that you pass along the way, then submit your answer.

US Version

It's puzzles like this that make the Memo function so useful.

Mark the directions you can move to from each square. Once you've marked it down, you'll probably notice that squares with two or more arrows on them really restrict your movement options, especially since you can't go back to your original square.

UK Version

It's times like this that you'll find the Memo Function useful. Try writing on each square the directions you can move in.

If you write them down, you'll probably notice that squares with two or more arrows on them really restrict your movement options, especially since you can't go back to your original square.

US Version

OK, here's how to get to the fifth step in the correct path:

From the starting square, go down, right, right, down, down.

UK Version

Okay, here are the first five steps: from the starting point, first go down, then right, right, down and down.

US Version

The only square that leads to the finishing square is the one right above it. The only square leading to that one is the one to the left of it. Since you can't get to that square from above or below it, you have to get there from the square to its left.

If you think about it like this, you should have the correct path plotted out in no time!

UK Version

The only square that leads to the green flag is the one above it. The square leading to that is to the left of it. Since you can't get to that square from above or below, you have to get there from the square on its left.

Sometimes you have to change the way you approach a solution.

US Version

Here's how to get to the halfway point:

From the starting square, Hint Two said to go down, right, right, down, down.

From there, go left, left, down, down. You should now find yourself in the bottom-left square. It shouldn't be difficult to reach the goal from here.

Interestingly, this puzzle doesn't use the upper-right squares at all.

UK Version

Here's how to get over the halfway point. Hint 2 told you to go down, right, right, down, down.

From there, go left, left, down, down. You should now find yourself in the bottom-left square.

The truth is, this maze hardly uses the squares in the top-right.


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

If you get stuck, take another look at the big picture. You might see a path you hadn't considered before.

UK Version

Too bad.

Try checking every square you pass through along the way. You'll find the way to the green flag eventually!

Correct

US Version

Correct!

You'll reach the finish without breaking any rules if you move along the path shown above.

UK Version

That's right!

You can reach the green flag if you take the route shown in this image. Considering each square individually is the way to make it to the end.
