One Poor Pooch is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Puzzle

The matches below are arranged in the shape of a dog. This poor little guy was just minding his own business when a car came barreling down the road and ran him over.

Move two matches to change the picture so that it shows the dog after the accident.

All puzzles are a matter of perspective, so don't assume that you'll be looking at the dog from the side by the time you're finished with this one.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The original shape shows the dog walking. Think about how that shape will change after the dog gets hit by the car.

Dogs walk on all four legs, but since this poor pooch isn't doing much walking anymore, the position of his legs must have changed.

The dog is probably sprawled out on the pavement where it got hit. To show this, you'll need to move two of his legs, or two matches. Take the two legs in the middle and bring them above.


Solution

Incorrect

Try again!

Because the dog was hit by a car, it's probably not walking anymore.

While it's all terribly sad, try to think about how the dog looked after the accident...

Correct

The car flattened the poor dog! Let this be a lesson to be aware of your surroundings when driving!
