    V5 Play has delivered a superb mix of differing puzzle styles, drawing from logic conundrums, rhythm-based efforts and even hidden object games to add a heap of variety, whilst also crafting a story that is laced with intrigue and dark humour at times, keeping the player's attention until the closing credits.

    While the Professor Layton series comes highly recommended if you're in the market for a puzzle adventure game, don't pass up this one.

    A solid adventure with a lot of puzzles and riddels. The amount of content is pretty cool, but there are small weaknesses everywhere. The hints aren't always useful, the questions aren't clear all the time and the story is not as stunning as in Professor Layton last adventure.

    This is one for the puzzle junkies alone, for those people that need a stopgap until the professor comes off sabbatical – but in the meantime, he can rest assured that his tenure will remain unthreatened by the likes of May Stery.

    The story is serviceable for moving you from one puzzle to the next, but not particularly engaging, and there isn't much to do in the world except tap through dialog and receive the next puzzle in a fairly linear fashion.
