Needling Needles (Eye on the Needles in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


"It's so dark in the shop that I'm having trouble seeing these tiny needles and thread. Can you help me out of this jam, dearie?"

There are two threads, A and B.
How many needles' eyes does thread A pass through?

The secret to solving this one is just patience and careful counting.

This is more a piece of advice than a hint, but try using the Memo function to mark the needles that thread A passes through. It'll make things much easier.

Use the Memo function to trace the path of thread A. Then with a different color, mark the needles that thread A passes through. You can even draw a thicker line so that it's easier to see.

You still haven't got it?

Well, let's just say it's a double-digit number.

The answer is the sum of the numbers one through four.



Too bad!
