Security Showdown is a puzzle in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


The local police force is assisting a museum to increase its security.

The guards' torches allow them to spot anything up to three squares away.

Do your best not to be seen and sneakily make your way out of the room!

Notice that the guards all follow a set path.

That said, start off by moving down towards the wall at the bottom.

Don't worry about the guard at the bottom.

Next, follow the guard as he proceeds right.

After moving fours steps to the right, move up one step and narrowly escape the guards torch.

In the previous hint, you cleverly used the guards pattern against him and slipped behind him unnoticed.

The next area is being patrolled by three guards. Timing is key here. Be sure to wait for the right moment before jumping out!

Once behind the passing guard, follow his path to the right until you make it to the rightmost wall.

From here it's only a few steps down to the goal!



Well done!

You managed to stay hidden in the darkness and make it out!
