Different, but in a great way! At first I was worried when I read what this game was going to be. A spin off game of the amazing Layton supposed brother? I adore Prof. Layton-- have/played all of his games-- and it was hard to believe this game would be able to live up to being more than some spin-off title. BUT IT'S GOOD. Instead of copying Layton, it's created it's own world, focusing on his brothers life. It's not like the Layton games, and that's GOOD. Great, even. These creators made a wonderful game.
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.
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.
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.
Love it! Should make a sequel Story & characters driven. Nice graphics. Lovely OST. Not so much on the gameplay itself. Feel repetitive at time. I don't mind that it's completely different than the rest of the Layton series though. I find it refreshing actually. All in all, they should make a sequel, since there're still so much more to explore and to be improved on. The game's mechanic is 3 1/2 stars. The rest all together 5 stars. So I give the game 4 stars.
More, please! I was so excited when I found this game, because I'm always happy to see studios put out new titles for the mobile market. It is quite different from the main Layton series, and, as others have said, it is somewhat similar to Ace Attorney. Rather than exploring and solving puzzles, you investigate crime scenes and solve cases. The art and music are both fantastic, the characters are endearing, and the plot is intriguing. The ending is a definite cliffhanger... I'm very sad there is still no sequel in sight!
