Tricky Tilework is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


You've been hired to adorn a wall with decorative colored tiles. There are three each of the red, yellow, green, the orange tiles, and four blue ones.

The first of each color tile has already been placed for you. All you need to do is decide where to put the rest.

Oh, and one more thing: no two tiles of the same color can be in the same row horizontally, vertically, and diagonally.

Nothing to it, right? Good luck!


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

There's only one layout that will work. In fact, it does have a certain pattern.

The top-right tile is green.

The one to the left of it is orange.

The bottom-left is red.

The one above it is blue.

One of the remaining blue tiles goes one square to the right of the top-left corner. The other leftover blue tile goes one square to the left of the bottom-right corner.

With all the blue tiles out of the way, the rest shouldn't be too difficult.



Too bad!

Are you sure you followed the rule?


US Version

Color you correct!

That's the only pattern that will work.

UK Version

Well tile be!

That's the only pattern that will work.
