    It came out 5 days ago and I finished it yesterday after grinding it for 18 hours. Unwound Future already held the spot of one of my favorite games of all time, and I basically sinked time into nothing but this for the past week. The atmosphere of this game is truly incomparable and you won’t find it anywhere else. The plot is deeply impactful, and to my knowledge there are no loose ends. Every story beat, every interaction, it has a purpose, and you become ingrained in the wonderful world they present you. The puzzles all vary in difficulty, and because not all are necessary to complete the game, anyone who finds them difficult is able to simply move on to those that work for them. The art and style are unique as well, and all the landscapes and puzzles have unique painting-esque portraits to match. the player is able to play the game as they wish, and it all works perfectly. I could never give this game anything other than five stars. It’s marvelous in every way. And to Level-5, if you’re reading this, there’s nothing I want more than to see my favorite game franchise make its way to mobile in its entirety. Keep up the good work out there.

    I love the Layton series and Katrielle is a brilliant heroine, quite full of spunk and humour, it's impossible not to love her. Yet on the other hand, when it comes to lost server data not appearing (even if data was successfully/completely saved to the server) is frustrating if anything.

    I just got this on my iPad and man is it great seeing the game in HD instead of the tiny pixilated DS screen. It’s been over a decade since I played this + I haven’t played any of the IOS rerelease before this so it feels very new! Thank you so much for completing the trilogy of my favorite childhood game! ( Still think you sould port these 3 games to the switch, I’m sure it would be a similar experience to a iPad mini)

    I loved the puzzles and stuff. The episodic nature of the episodes where cool. Just wished there was more and that the cases were a bit more serious

    As a huge fan of Layton 1 and 2, I was extremely excited to play Layton 3 and bought it on day 1. This game is not nearly as good as the previous two. Layton is a puzzle game. This game game chooses to forego that and instead lean HEAVILY on being a “visual novel”. There is about 3x the amount of text in this game as previous games. Random bystanders that you click to try to trigger a puzzle can blather on with flavor text for several screens before introducing a puzzle or yielding nothing. Much of this is an Attempt to give context to the puzzles, but the context is unneeded. The end result is thinking, “I want to do a few puzzles while I have time” and realizing that your entire play session may just be clicking through dialog with no puzzles in sight. As for the puzzles, they are shockingly bad sometimes. many puzzles rely not on logic, but merely guesswork and assumptions. This is new for the series. There are also many puzzles that leave too many open ends to the phrasing. This is poison to a logic game. This game is still worth playing but set your expectations. It’s not as good as the first two, especially the second.

    I was really enjoying the game until it required a gig update - which is too much for my phone, so now I can't even play it even though I paid for it.

    I can’t believe I spent money for an app that forces me to use my iPad in portrait mode. Don’t care how good it is, I won’t play it.

    I adored this game. Bought all of the DLC. I was willing to put every penny into this game. Played it for a while... I saved my game last night and when I went to play today, my saved data was all gone. I had not linked to an account since I wasn't getting a new phone soon. I'm so upset since I was fairly far in the game. The game was good but this is a game running bug.

    Great little game. Spent 15 hours playing the game and they're still putting out a bit of extra content by making daily puzzles for free! Highly suggest this.

    perfect bite sized Layton game. The full length ones are perfect for consoles, but the short form mysteries work better on mobile.

  • Essentially flawless Jul 17, 2020

    By Bcampo20
    Loved being able to play the first two, having never owned their previous iterations. As a consequence however, I’ve grown to enjoy the previous title’s puzzle music more and would absolutely love the option to switch between bgms while solving a puzzle. Other than that, absolutely great work, worth every cent.

  • Puzzle heaven! Sep 3, 2020

    The storyline and puzzles are so well done. I love the stories! So well done! I took 1 star away for Flora. Sorry. I rolled my eyes on all her lines. Could she be more silly? She probably could but I wish her character was given more depth. Sorry to take a star from you for it but I had to speak up.

    Having a blast with game. Story is enjoyable, puzzles are fun. One complaint would be the memo pad is very laggy and it's unusable, which is a shame when you want to write down notes while puzzle solving.

    good game overall. bad voice acting, and while that isn't uncommon for the layton games, i've never had to completely turn off the voice volume before. puzzles also seemed to be a lot easier than in past games.

    The game has nice graphics and interesting storyline, however it wasn't for me I guess. I lost interest after completing two chapters and I was wondering if I could get a refund.

    I don't enjoy paying for games but when I saw how fun Layton Brothers mystery Room and then saw the advertising for this I just knew that it would be great. Too bad I got over-excited Layton Brothers mystery Room was way better this was more along the lines of solving lots of riddles with a story line that you have little influence in. It's not bad but if I had the chance I wouldn't spend my money on it again. I cannot say it was bad but it fell short by comparison.
