Isn't actually compatible... [UPDATED] In the description and in the store this game claims to be compatible with android devices, but it doesn't even open on my phone or my tablet, which is REALLY depressing 'cause I played it when I had my iPhone and it was REALLY REALLY good and I wanted to be able to finish it after I switched phones. I bought the final levels and everything and now I can't even open the game after switching phones.... [UPDATE] IT WORKS ON MY TABLET NOW. Still doesn't work on my Droid mini
Great combination of Phoenix Wright with Professor Layton art style Very good game. If you ever played any of P.Wright or Apollo justice games you will feel at home here. The game is divided in number of chapters where you have to find evidence and question suspects. Some of the cases are much easier than others, but they are all well written and challenging. Many times you will find yourself going through files trying to put all the pieces together.
Amazing! After you buy all the chapters (I think it was less than $8 total...) It was a little bit short, but you're a detective who investigates homicide. Way better than professor Layton's games on the 3ds in my opinion... More realistic characters, and cases that actually stump you sometimes. Also, the first like four cases are free.
Visual novel-esque. Layton Brothers is pretty different to the main Professor Layton series. It's comprised of 9 separate murder mysteries, with an overarching plot that takes centre stage near the end of the game. The murders are all interesting and fun to solve, but I found the game did a fair amount of the work for me. The story is really what carries this game and makes it something special. There's a huge amount of witty and entertaining dialogue and plenty of unique characters to meet. ~9 hours well spent!
Excellent Mystery Solving Game LOVE the gameplay and concept. Very cool mysteries and crimes. My one criticism would be that there should be bonus points or an achievement or trophy or something to acknowledge if u were able to guess who the culprit is from the start, I get the whole 96.7% calculation which is funny but I feel sometimes the player needs a reward as well. Plus I honestly solved one of the mysteries without ANY hints at all, so an achievement should be given for that.
I really enjoyed playing through this. Fun little cases with just enough humour to not make them too dark. The writing and characters are true to the usual Level 5 quality and aesthetic. The 3D investigation gameplay is designed really well. My only issue was with the two finger scroll used to navigate some crime scene areas as it seemed a bit inefficient (at least on my phone). Otherwise, really nice, smooth interactions. Definitely worth it to purchase both case packages, especially if you like the story!
