Similar Snowflakes is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.


As usual, it's snowing in Froenborg!

Look carefully, and you'll see that there are three different types of snowflake gently fluttering their way down from the sky.

Of the four snowflake patterns shown on the Touch Screen, one of them does not match any of these falling snowflakes. Can you work out which one it is?

Be sure to look closely before answering!

Trying to look at all the snowflakes at once will only end up making your head spin.

Examine them one at a time.

One way of telling the snowflakes apart is by looking at the start shape in the middle of each one.

The snowflakes may look the same at first glance, but each of the three types has its down characteristics.

Look at D, for example. In the very centre, it has a circle that's larger than the central point on any of the other patterns.

Remembering this, then check to see if you can see any falling snowflakes with a similar central part.

Look closely at B, and you'll see that the spiky "M" shape repeated around its centre makes it quite a distinct snowflake.

Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, the one shape you haven't spotted in the sky so far must be your answer.

Are you getting tired of staring at the snowflakes?

This should narrow things down for you: B and D definitely represent some of the snowflakes falling through the sky.

That just leaves A and C. Examine them carefully and you'll soon have this puzzle solved!



Too bad.

Still, there's no need to panic. Examine the snowflakes one at a time!



It turns out C is a special kind of snowflake that only falls late at night, as you can see here.
