Review: May's Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville (PC)
6 November 2014
Summary: May’s Mysteries is an acceptable collection of puzzles loosely tied together with a forgettable story. The interface is a bit off, and the feature list is lacking. However, if you need a Layton-style game on something that isn’t a handheld system, this game can certainly fit the bill. While it’s a lower budget version of that game, the price is low enough that you’ll likely find it to be an acceptable trade-off.
Conclusion: Overall, May's Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville is a fully-loaded puzzler with some notable highs and lows. It is attractive and demanding, and delivers serious value for money... for players who love certain types of puzzles. However, its lack of organic quests and near-total absence of interactivity with the game world basically reduces it to a sequence of short chats with inconsequential characters with the sole intention of triggering the next standalone puzzle.
