The Specter's Path (The Spectre's Path in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


Traps were set at every intersection in town. That night, every time the specter passed an intersection, that spot was marked with a red X.

Knowing that the specter never hits the same area twice, Luke had a revelation.

"I've got it! I know which way the specter went!"

Which way, A to H, does Luke think the specter went? Circle the letter.

Every spot with an X is an area the specter had to have passed before he left the town.

Anywhere there isn't an X, the trap wasn't sprung. Therefore, the specter didn't pass there.

Look for intersections where the specter could only go one way.

Keep in mind that while each intersection has streets going in three or four directions, the specter could only have passed through it once.

Here's the first part of the path the specter took:

Starting from the red X in front of where the specter appeared, it moved down, down, left, up, left, upper left, left down, left.

That left it in front of H.

From the X in front of H, the specter went up, up, down, right, down, right, up, right, up left, up right, and up. At that point it was in front of B.

Next it went right, down, left, down, right, and down.

The rest should be a piece of cake!



Too bad!

Try using the Memo function to follow every trap sprung by the specter.


That's the way!

It was E.

Now we know which way the specter went!
