Professor Layton and the Curious Village – 1. Love It

Based on a recommendation I got on one of my previous posts and all around good reviews of this game, I decided to try it in spite of the fact that it did not seem that appealing to me.

The result? I like it! It has some fun puzzles and I actually like the style of the graphics and story telling. There’s voice acting and the presentation is that of a cartoon. It also has it’s flaws, though. Some of the puzzles are strange and misleading. For instance, the puzzle with the two farmers. It clearly says that the plot is split in half, but, since the game put some much details into how fast they work, I assumed that this couldn’t be the correct answer, even though it was the first thing that crossed my mind. The one with the dog that got run over was weird to. I assumed i need to move two of the legs from the bottom to the top, but the game wanted them in a cross formation when I pointed them all backwards. Both formations seem perfectly plausible to me, so I really think the game should accept both answers.

It has that old cartoon style. It reminds me of Doctor Dolittle.

Still, all of this might simply be because I’m not used to the game yet so I will give it some time. For now, I’ve solved eleven puzzles, including a bonus one and also got to chapter 2. I have two mysteries to solve. I need to find the golden apple and find out what was the source of the noise that scared the ladies cat.

  • I dont have a ds so I can’t play this one. Have you tried MineCraft? It’s my most recent addicting beyond reason game.

  • Looks cool man – keep em coming.

    hahahah cute cover, is it fun?

  • Thanks, I hope this one keeps me playing until completion. Yes, I have tried and bought Minecraft, but I can’t play it cause of my laptop.

  • @Joscelin: Seems fun enough for now. A bit quirky, but still fun. Depends on how the rest of the puzzles are.

    personally, I love layton. it’s more relaxed, though it can be a pain in the ass at times. still, an awesomely solid game. haven’t gotten to the 3rd one yet, though

  • After playing it some more today, I have to agree with you. It’s a nice, fun and relaxed game. You can do one puzzle at a time if you want to, or you can do a whole bunch of them and it’s still fun. I just love the atmosphere and the design. It’s pretty much a perfect game for the DS.
