Summary: I am Very upset!! I purchased this thinking it was a sequel to the Forbidden Memories game. IT IS NOT!! It is the same game with a different title!! I lost out and I hope you read this before you buy it!
Summary: I had bought this game because it was suposed to be like professor layton, but there is way to much talking in it. Even more than Professor Layton. If I wanted to read a story I would have gotten a book game.
Summary: Cindy is right. The two are one in the same. I received both as gifts thinking that, like the Professor Layton collection, this was a sequel to the Forbidden Memories. Nope! Different packaging but same game. I gave it an extra star because I do enjoy the puzzles. A lot more yapping than necessary, but the puzzles are good. My favorites are the hidden picture and minesweep. There is also a lot of algebra type of puzzles.
Summary: When I received this DS game, I thought I was purchasing a NEW adventure with MAYS MYSTERIES: THE SECRET OF DRAGONVILLE game. Boy, was I disappointed!!! It is the EXACT DS game I purchased before, called MAYS MYSTERIES: FORBIDDEN MEMORIES. WHAT A BUMMER that Nintendo is sponsoring the exact same game under another name and producing company. I will be very careful in the future to look for duplication. AND, It is NO WAY as good as Professor Layton games!
Summary: A game with lots of little 'mini games' which makes it diverse and interesting (even for an adult). I didn't like that there was no explanation for some of the games though, so had to look for answers to some of the puzzle, and I'm still none-the-wiser as to what it all means... Not many I found are 'un-doable' but some are slightly misleading (so even if you have worked it out, your answer may not appear to be correct due to the way you have worked it out).
Summary: I wanted a ds game for my nearly 7 year old, that he could play without needing lots of help from us. He can read beautifully so i saw the age 3 recommendation and thought this would be ideal. As it turns out, most of the mini puzzles are much too complicated for him and so he needs help every few minutes! The only ones he can do well by himself so far are the visual ones.
Summary: Designed on the same lines as the prof Layton type but not as well thought out. There are no hints or tips for the puzzles and you have to get some right before you can carry on any further. The graphics are not great either. All in all not great.
