Roped In (Rope Puzzle 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

Those goons are standing right below that wooded crate! All you need to do is cut the rope, but it's all messed up...

Rearrange the tiles so that the rope connects from Luke's scissors to the crate above the goons. Keep in mind that you need to use all the tiles. Now, hurry!

UK Version

Drop this wooden crate on the thugs!

All you have to do is cut the rope...but it's all tangled up. Line up the parts to straighten out the rope, ready for cutting!

Use all the parts!

US Version

The final section of rope that connections to the crate is simply one horizontal length. Put that piece in place first.

The section that goes right above Luke's scissors has two pulleys.

UK Version

A single horizontal piece of rope connects to the crate. You can get that right away.

The part nearest Luke has two pulley on it.

US Version

The two sections that go at the very bottom have one pulley each. If you think about the direction the rope needs to go, you should be able to find these two sections right away.

UK Version

The two parts at the very bottom both have one pulley each on them. If you think about the direction that the rope goes, you should be able to work out which parts go there straight away.

US Version

The top-right section has one pulley. The rope comes in and out of this pulley from the left side.

The section to the left of the top-right section has one pulley, and the rope enters from the section below. This section also has a piece of rope running horizontally along the top.

UK Version

The top-right part has one pulley on it. The rope comes in from the left and goes back out to the left.

The part to the left of that has one pulley on it, and the rope coming from the right goes out at the bottom. The only thing that's above the pulley is a horizontal rope.

US Version

Here's the path of rope starting from the section next to the crate:

Right, down, right, left, up, right, right, left, down, right, down, down, up, left, down, left, up, down, down, right, up, right, and down to Luke.

Got all that? Great!

UK Version

Here's the path the rope follows, part-by-part.
Starting from the part nearest the crate, the rope goes right, down, right, left, up, right, right, left, down, right, down, down, up.
This brings us to the part that is three down from the top-left corner.
The rope continues left, down, left, up, down, down, right, up and right, arriving at the part nearest Luke. Got it?



US Version

Too bad!

Be sure all of the pieces connect.

UK Version

Too bad.

You won't be able to proceed until those thugs are out of the way.


US Version

Very nice!

Now, cut that rope!

UK Version

That's right!

It's time to cut the rope, even if you do feel a little sorry for the thugs.
