From the moment it was announced for mobile, I was so excited to play Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Of course, that meant my expectations were high as a kite and after such a positive experience with Layton’s Mystery Journey, there was a lot to live up to.
It’s safe to say that the game is yet another magnificent entry in mobile and, since the Curious Village is the very first Layton game in the series, it gives me hope that we might see more make their way over.
Saying that, my experience was on an iPad. Had I been playing on iPhone I feel things might have been a little bit different.
Think about the answer
Professor Layton and the Curious Village is a narrative-driven puzzler where good ol’ Professor Layton heads off to an isolated village by request of a Baron’s widow. She needs his help to find her husband’s hidden fortune, a golden apple, but there’s far more to the mystery than originally anticipated.
