May's Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville (Nintendo DS) Review
9 April 2011
Summary: Earlier this year Cubed3 had the chance to try out an early version of an upcoming Professor Layton-style adventure, May’s Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville , and recently caught up with the development team to discuss the project in further detail.
Conclusion: The game offers a unique combination of gaming styles, making it the most comprehensive puzzle adventure yet. The 230 brain teasers are complemented by 25 highly-detailed hidden object scenes (featuring over 500 individual items), 13 rhythm-action games and many more.
Summary: If you're looking for something to tide you over until the next Layton, then you could do much worse than this game. However, May's Mysteries is a good game in its own right and should sit beside Layton as one of the best puzzle games on the DS.
Conclusion: The Short Version: May's Mysteries: The Secret Of Dragonville punches well above its weight; offering a premium puzzler with some serious clout and impressive value for its budget price tag. A few annoyances aside, this could well be the perfect antidote to countless tedious commutes.
