The Bus's Route is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.


A very large bus approaches a town. Since the streets of this town are so narrow, the bus can only turn at corners where there are no buildings, and then only in the direction the corner allows.

The bus arrives from the south, so can you find the shortest route for the bus if it wants to exit to the east? Trace a line from the starting point to the goal.

Drive until you hit a wall, then turn right. Keep going until you hit a wall... Then it's up to you to puzzle out.




Under regular circumstances, the route in map A is the quickest route.

However, the bus can also go in reverse, so if it drove forward, as in map B, backed up around the corner, and then exited, that would actually be the quickest.

Did you think of that?
