Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is the second game in the series on the Nintendo DS. This hand held video game is part puzzle, part mystery story, and part anime. The cartoon elements are so well done that it has me interested in finding seasons of this cartoon.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Guide 2 Games

  • Excerpt: There’s nothing quite like a good mystery. After all, who doesn’t like trying to put all the pieces together before the end? I guess we like to think we can outthink the best detectives of fiction. In some cases, it doesn’t take much. It’s all but given to us on a silver platter.

Common Sense Media
15 February 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this challenging puzzle adventure is a great way to combine education with gaming. The over 150 logic puzzles are incorporated into an interesting mystery.

  • Summary: I love Professor Layton’s quiet, slow-paced approach to puzzling, and the Diabolical Box brings more of what made the first installment so engaging.

  • Excerpt: With a title like Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box I half expected there be a trick in opening the game case. This second game is a continuation of the Professor Layton series on Nintendo DS.

  • Conclusion: Concept: You solve puzzles while the Professor solves ­the ­mysteries Graphics: Far more animated (and fully voiced) scenes are ­sprinkled ­throughout Sound: The signature accordion returns Playability: Players should have the ability to erase only parts of their hand scrawled memos instead of...

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

14 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The first Professor Layton title came out of nowhere. When Professor Layton and the Curious Village was released no one really knew what to expect, and everyone was impressed with what Nintendo and Level 5 had created.

  • Excerpt: If Professor Layton is moving at 3 mph heading east, and his apprentice Luke is moving 2 mph heading north, and they start at the same point, after how many minutes will they no longer be able to see each other if visibility is one mile?
