About this game

With over 17 million units sold worldwide, discover the original title that shaped the puzzle-adventure genre and launched a legacy. Digitally remastered in HD for mobile devices and with new, never-before-seen animated cutscenes, it’s time to run the cerebral marathon with Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

The tale begins as Professor Layton, a true English gentleman and famous archeologist, drives to the remote settlement of St. Mystere with his apprentice, Luke, in response to a request from the widow of a wealthy baron. The baron’s will indicates that the family treasure, the Golden Apple, is hidden somewhere within the village, and whoever finds it will inherit the whole of the Reinhold Estate. The Professor and Luke must search the town for clues leading to the precious heirloom.

Featuring a distinctive artistic style that oozes old-world charm, the game’s quirky cast of characters instantly comes to life. The animated cutscenes, remastered in HD, tell key parts of the tale in gorgeous detail. And ever-present in the background, the original soundtrack, beloved by many players, keenly captures the mood of the Layton universe.

Based on the "Atama no Taisou" (lit. "Head Gymnastics") books by Akira Tago, Professor Layton and the Curious Village brings together more than 100 brain teasers including slide puzzles, matchstick puzzles, and even trick questions to flex players’ observation, logic, and critical thinking skills. In addition, rather than just selecting challenges from a list, players uncover puzzles through conversations with the villagers or by investigating their surroundings.

If you are obsessed with mind-bending puzzles, Professor Layton and the Curious Village is for you!

• 1st installment of the Layton Series

Good (now) classic game with some quality puzzles and really good production values, but some puzzles (Digital Clock, looking at you) have some unwritten assumptions that affect the "right" answer in the puzzle, which seems like an oversight. That aspect can definitely feel frustrating.

I'm only about 10 puzzles in yet, but it's pretty engaging so far. I have mostly already seen the puzzles I have come across already, these are just variations on those, so little bit disappointing in that regard. Good story, I'm excited to solve puzzles to see what happens next. I agree with others that the sound effects are too loud, but thankfully you can adjust the volume in the settings. One bigger annoyance is it doesn't use Play Games to link your account, so I had to create an account out of game, accept the email, go back into the game, and go through a cumbersome login process in the game. Having it be just 1 click would be nice. That's only if you want to sync progress across devices however. Worth $10? Not sure. $3 - $5? Absolutely!

Don't let the $10 pricetag scare you: this is a full-length, beautiful game (that was originally $35 on the Nintendo DS in 2008) with amazing music, visually arresting art, a compelling story, and ZERO microtransactions. I played some of it via the original DS release when it hit the States in 2008, and I must say, this Nintendo DS game has transferred PERFECTLY to smartphones (see also: The World Ends With You), with high-resolution art and music. Don't be on the fence: this is a must-download!
