The goal is to get each of the four coloured trilobites (Yellow, Blue, Green, Red) in their correct coloured hole with their head facing the same way as he thole is shaped. Press to select/unselect a trilobite and the to guide them along the path.

Start with Yellow and move it up so it's next to the lower triangle. Move Blue into the blue spot, it will sink in when he's properly aligned. Move Yellow to the left of the upper triangle. Move Green around the shell on the left, up past the lower triangle, up past the upper triangle, and around to its green spot. It will sink in when it's properly aligned.

Move Yellow all the way around the outer circle past green and red spots, turn down by the upper triangle into its yellow spot and it will sink in. Move Red all the way around the outer circle past blue spot, turn down by the upper triangle, past the lower triangle, and follow the outer circle past the green spot to its red spot. When it sinks in the achievement will unlock.

this is not that hard to figure out...but it took me a while...maybe worth mentioning that once the trilobite locks into place (its colored hole) can move over it with other doesn't block the path. I assumed it did...wasted a half hour trying to figure this out!

This puzzle is not responding to anything that I do - when I enter it, there is no flashlight to shine anywhere, let alone on the trilobites - this is ridiculous - can anyone PLEASE help with this? I know how to solve it, but the f-light does not appear to be functional..............thanks guys................
