The Cake Gobbler is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


"Hey! Somebody at my piece of cake! I was saving that for later!"

A:"I didn't eat it!"
B:"Neither A nor D ate it."
C:"I didn't eat it, either!"
D:"C is telling the truth."

Somebody isn't telling the truth. That person is the cake gobbler. Who is it?! Circle the answer, then tap Submit.


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Compare all the statements carefully. Did you notice that if A is lying, then B would d also be lying?

If D is lying, then C would be lying.

If C is lying, then D would be lying.

Also, you'll soon realize that if B is lying, there is more than one cake eater and therefore more than one liar.

Are they all liars?! No. Only one person involved in this puzzle is lying.

Out of A, B, C, and D, maybe nobody is lying...

But somebody ate the cake!

A, B, C, and D are all telling the truth. But somebody is definitely lying.

Who else is there?



Too bad!

Don't overlook any of the possibilities.


You got it!

The "somebody" who wasn't telling the truth was me. I wasn't saving the cake for later at all!

Thinking logically, once you realized that A, B, C, and D are all telling the truth, the person who must be lying is me!
