Underground Escape is a weekly puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.


Oh, no! You're trapped deep underground! To escape, make your way through the blocks and reach the exit marked by the white arrow at the surface.

The orange ball is you. Good luck!

This puzzle is difficult, but it can be solved in as few as 10 moves.

Find a way to slide the blue piece into the square space on the right. Then slide the yellow piece into the gap that's formed between the blue piece and the ground above it. After that, slide the orange piece over the part of the yellow piece that's sticking out. That should help you escape!
