Where's the Arrow? (The Secret Letter in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


US Version

There's a treasure hidden below one of the tiles in this room. The only clue is a handwritten note:

"Follow the arrow to find it."

Which tile should you lift to find the treasure? Draw a circle around it with your stylus.

UK Version

You receive a letter that says:
"The room in this photograph hides a secret. Remove one of the floor tiles to reveal the hidden treasure."

In the same envelope as the letter is the photograph shown below, with the following note on the back:
"Follow the arrow to where the treasure lies..."

Which tile do you need to remove in order to find the treasure? Circle your answer.

US Version

Nothing very sneaking is going on. There's actually an arrow somewhere.

UK Version

An arrow has been drawn somewhere, and it's easy to spot. Look carefully.

US Version

Rather than focusing too intently on the room, try blurring your vision and having a look.

UK Version

If you haven't found anything by studying the photograph intently, try casting a casual eye over the whole thing for a while.

US Version

The arrow is somewhere left of center.

UK Version

The arrow is on the left-hand side of the photograph. It's actually disguised as something else.

US Version

Look closely at the paintings in the room. There's an arrow hidden in one...

UK Version

Studying the framed pictures on the wall should point you in the right direction.



US Version

Too bad!

Look for an arrow.

It's definitely in there somewhere.

UK Version

Bad luck!

Look for the arrow!


US Version


The monkey in the painting on the wall has an arrow hidden in its face!

The tile directly below it is the one hiding the treasure.

UK Version

That's right!

The nose and mouth of the monkey in the picture on the wall combine to form an arrow shape. The treasure can be found under the floor tile directly beneath this arrow.
