Totem Tumbler is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


This time, our blocks are piled up in a cave. There should be four columns here, arranged as in the picture in the top right, like a staircase. Can you put the columns back in order again?

There, however, one crucial condition this time: you may only use the mallet once. Take your time and make one well-placed hit!


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

You can only make one hit with the mallet. If you're finding yourself at a loss, just try hitting somewhere and see what happens.

Whatever you try, it doesn't look like you'll be able to get all the blocks in the right place with just one hit. So what can the solution be here?

Look carefully over the whole scene on the top screen. Is there anywhere that looks as if it might break?

The blocks are standing on a stone base. If you look at the left end of that base, you'll notice a little crack. Try giving that a whack!



Well done!

You got the idea. The only way to do it one hit was to lean the base to one side. Sometimes it's good to think outside the box!
