The first Labyrinth Puzzle - Castle Dimitrescu
All of the labyrinth puzzles are large, interactive mock-ups. The one from the Dimitrescu Castle is in the Merchant's Room, the one where merchant Duke and the typewriter are.
Unfortunately, you can't do anything at first because you have to find a matching orb for each labyrinth puzzle.
The Flower Swords Ball, which you can find at the end of the corridor above the Opera Hall, fits the model from the Merchant's Room. The ball chest is guarded by a single monster.
Return to the mock-up with the ball. After putting it in, a mini-game will start - you have to guide the ball to the exit by tilting the model using the left analog knob.
Additionally, to better track the ball you can rotate the model by pressing R2 and L2 / right and left triggers.
The puzzle will restart if the ball falls off from the model or into one of the trap holes. The end of the puzzle is the most difficult, because you have to roll the ball blindly to some extent. The correct way to roll it is shown in the picture above - this way you will avoid the holes in the middle of the courtyard.
The reward for completing the puzzle is a very valuable Treasure - Crimson Skull. You can sell it to Duke right away.
The second Labyrinth Puzzle - Garden
The second puzzle with a model can be found in the Garden, but this location becomes accessible only after you defeat Donna Beneviento in House Beneviento and are on your way back to the main part of the village.
The mock-up is inside a house on a hill.
You can find the Sun and Moon Ball needed to play the model mini-game south of the house, in a small cemetery with tombstones partially covered in snow.
The third Labyrinth Puzzle - Reservoir
You can find the third mock-up puzzle near the mill, on the path leading to the Reservoir, which is the location of the boss Moreau.
You can get the matching Mermaid Ball only on the way back from the Reservoir to the village, that is after defeating the mutated Moreau. You must use the Crank to unlock access to a side area in the forest. You will find the ball by visiting the altar shown in the pictures.
The fourth Labyrinth Puzzle - Heisenberg's Factory
You can find the fourth mock-up puzzle while exploring Heisenberg's Factory at the end of the game. It is in a room on level B4, next to a large elevator with Duke used to travel around the various floors of the factory.
Acquiring the ball is more troublesome in this case because you have to create it first. You will need the Ball Mold for this. It is in a side room on level B2, which you can reach by going through the ventilation shaft. You can get to the shaft by moving the cart that blocks the entrance.
Once you have the mold, you must go to the Casting Machine located in the Foundry on level MB4.
