"Interesting Game - Something a Bit Different"
5 stars"

The storyline is a bit predictable but it's the puzzles that are really great (and of course the most important aspect of this game). This game is suitable for both children and adults alike. There are some old well-known puzzles and some new ones. Play time is decent, especially if you get stumped on particular puzzles, and can take up to 15 hours to complete the story mode. I still haven't managed to unlock everything! If you really enjoy brain teasers you'll love this game. It's challenging enough for even the keenest puzzle solvers, and makes a change from the regular set of games we usually see on DS. Five stars!

"Not just for the kids!"
5 stars"

If you enjoy brain teasers and puzzle solving then you will love this game.

I bought this for my wife to play when she was feeling sick. She played it non-stop for 2 days – a total of 24 hours of puzzle time and still hasn't finished all of them.

Engaging story, genuine mystery solving and lots and lots of solveable puzzles.

I finally got my hands on it and can safely say this is one of my favourite games. I am over 1/2 through (in about 6 hours) and loving every minute of gameplay.

A definite purchase. It will challenge you without frustrating you.

"A game for people who think outside-the-box"
5 stars"

Professor Layton and the Curious Village is a puzzle-based 2D point-and-click game. Explore St. Mystere and unlock all of its secrets.

One thing that everyone should be aware of, this is NOT a kids game. Kids would not have the faintest idea of how to solve most of the puzzles presented. The puzzles here are more suitable for a high school student who has the ability to critically think about things.

Great game overall, music does get slightly repetitive and annoying but that's the only downside.

In the curious village of St. Mystere, townsfolk speak to each other in riddles, lock their doors with sliding puzzles and hide their secrets within brainteasers. When a wealthy baron passes away, his will reveals an elusive treasure hidden someplace inside the village. Now it's up to Professor Layton to untangle St. Mystere's riddles and puzzles, find the hidden treasure, and crack the case.

When the wealthy Baron Augustus Reinhold passes away, his will reveals a hidden treasure in the village of St. Mystere. Unable to locate the treasure themselves, the baron's family calls upon renowned puzzle expert Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, for help. Upon the pair's arrival, their search for the treasure is interrupted by the suspicious death of another member of the Reinhold family. Now with two mysteries on their hands, Professor Layton and Luke must work their way through the village's many puzzles, riddles and brainteasers to find the truth.

  • As Professor Layton, players tackle more than 130 puzzles as they unravel the mysteries of the village. Challenges range from mazes and riddles to logic and sliding puzzles, many of which are new for the North American release. Touch-screen controls make working through puzzles a snap for players of all skill levels, and new puzzles are available weekly for download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
  • Unlike other puzzle-driven titles, Professor Layton is the first to offer a story, cast of characters and style that are just as strong as the game play. Fully voiced animated scenes bring the story to life, while the funny and eccentric villagers and the classic, hand-drawn art provide a stylish charm that will appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike.
  • The storyline and puzzles are tightly integrated, so that as you explore the world and progress through the adventure, you will encounter more and more puzzles. Many of the puzzles are new to the North American release.
  • Characters: Archaeologist and puzzle master Professor Layton, his wide-eyed apprentice, Luke, and a host of quirky townsfolk.
  • Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Content: Each week for half a year, a new puzzle will be available for download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
