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: Similar to Layton as puzzle exploring game but not as good - things that let it down are reentering puzzles you fail (goes bk to selecting person/area rather than asking to try again), music puzzles quite hard (may just be me). Overall its a gd game the little I've played and would def recommend to those who like puzzles or want a change to usual games.
Summary: I bought this as I'm an avid Professor Layton fan and to be perfectly honest, I find this game better. The walkthrough is quite simple so there's no need to worry about taking a wrong route and it's packed full of great puzzles of varying difficulties. I do find it frustrating that there's no notepad overlay like Layton to assist workings out and there doesn't seem to be any explanation when you guess correctly.
If you like Professor Layton you should like this.

Summary: This Nintendo DS game is in the same vein as the Professor Layton series of games - you have areas to explore and puzzles to solve in order to progress to the next areas and move along the story. The puzzles are a nice mix of types, from hidden object and sliding block puzzles, to rhythmic, mathematical and logical ones. As you solve puzzles in the story, you unlock Bonus Puzzles too.
Summary: Almost as good as the Professor Layton games. Some of the hints are not very helpful. Would have appreciated some feedback when getting the answer correct. Plenty of variety in the puzzles. Excellent value for the money.
