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.
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.
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.
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.
Update more episodes please This game is great! Amazing graphics splendid storyline and I absolutely need to find out what happens! There's the tease with lucy and prof being together which I love. But at the same time he killed her. I so wanna know what happened cuz it left me hanging. I wanna know why he killed her. I wanna know how he killed her. When the last scene opened with my head what r u doing I was like wtf?! Happened! So please make a dern sequel or more cases! Then there's his brother! So many unanswered questions!
