Spinning Maize is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


Two ladybug friends, one red and one blue, have lost each other in this corncob. Wherever they go, the corn kernels seem to get between them!

Can you guide the red ladybug around the corncob to meet its blue friend?


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

If you stay calm and take your time, you'll get there eventually! If you get completely lost, you can always start again from the beginning.

For now, head upward!

Where are you getting lost?

Try going back to the start. If you head upward, you'll soon find yourself at a fork with three possible paths.

Take the middle route, and head for that green corn kernel you can see on the horizon.

Have you reached the green kernel mentioned in Hint 2? Next, take the path to the right of the green kernel.

You're well on your way now!

Continuing from Hint 3, once you're on the path to the right of the green kernel, stick to the left wall. Just keep left and go on until you spot the little blue ladybug!



Well done!

From the point of view of a ladybug, a corn-cob must seem like an impenetrable maze.

  • Initial position
  • Head upwards
  • Take the middle route
  • Take the path to the right of the green kernel
  • Take the left path
  • Keep left
  • Head upwards until you reach the blue ladybug
  • Correct!
