Summary: Professor Layton and Luke return to solve their second mystery. This instalment is very much more of the same. Some of the puzzles are versions of classics like the Towers of Hanoi and the Knight's Tour in chess, others are variations on puzzles from the first game, such as the sliding block puzzles. But there is plenty of variety and the difficulty level felt about the same to me.
