Unfriendly Neighbors (Unfriendly Commute in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.


Draw a path between one man's home and his work by connecting matching blocks.

The catch is that these men can't stand each other, so you have to make sure that none of the paths touch.

To make a path, all you need to do is tap a block and start drawing.

You might think that this puzzle is impossible, but rest assured, it's not.

The first thing you should try to do is connect any pair of blocks. That'll limit where your next path can go. B's route is shortest. Try enough times and you're sure to figure it out.

The path between the b blocks is a straight line. D goes around to the north.

As stated earlier, connect the pair of b blocks with a straight line. Then connect the d blocks by drawing a path that arcs up over the b block path. A goes south then east.

Got it now?



That's right!

Now those guys don't even have to look at each other! Good job!
