Gameplay

Like all games in the Professor Layton series Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is a single player puzzle adventure. Puzzles are essentially brainteasers touching on a large variety of puzzle types, including spatial orientation, logic, riddles and many more. The game's story reveals itself as the player successfully solves a minimum number of puzzles that she/he faces using the DS stylus to move throughout the game's hand-drawn style game environments. Success at puzzle solving earns the player in-game coins. A certain number of coins can also found by simply exploring the game environment. Players are given multiple chances to solve puzzles and when stuck can choose to spend coins in order to buy hints. The game keeps track of puzzles found, puzzles solved, the player's score and playing time, and features easy-to-use save functionality, a journal for note keeping and an area to save items found for later use. In addition to the game's 165 built-in puzzles, additional puzzles will be available for download on a weekly basis for a limited time after game launch.

Product Description

Professor Layton receives a letter asking for help from Luke. The strange thing is that this letter is from 10 years in the future, and the Luke in question is not Professor Layton’s young apprentice, but rather his older self. According to the future Luke, the London of the future has been brought to the brink of ruin by Professor Layton’s future self, who is the head of the largest crime syndicate in town. It seems the only man who can save London and stop the evil Professor Layton of the future is Professor Layton himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Professor Layton Yet September 16, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The latest entry in the Professor Layton series is pretty much the perfect portable game, assuming of course that you're into puzzle solving. It's fun and quick to pick up and play, with high production values and a ton of content. If you've played earlier entries in the series, then you won't be too surprised by this one - it follows a fairly similar formula. Professor Layton and Luke (his faithful assistant) travel to London in order to see a demonstration of a brand new invention: the Time Machine. Things go a little haywire with the demonstration, and then a few days later the Professor receives a letter in the mail from Luke - sent from 10 years in the future! This kicks off a whole adventure of puzzle solving, and things only get crazier from there.

This game has 12 chapters, and a total of 165 puzzles - which should be enough to keep anyone busy for a while. There's a hint system available in case you get stuck, just like previous entries in the series. As you play through the game, you'll collect coins that can be used to purchase hints if you're having trouble with a puzzle. If you're REALLY stuck then you can buy a super hint - which is a new addition to the series and pretty much just tells you the answer to the puzzle. So don't worry too much about getting stuck and frustrated.

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is a lot of fun to look at. They did a fantastic job with the art style and animation, and there's even some decent voiceover work. If you're a fan of the Professor Layton series then you should pick this game up immediately. If you haven't played any of the previous entries and you're into puzzle game, then definitely give this one a shot. You don't need to know about any of the previous games in order to enjoy it, and it really is one of the more polished DS games available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Professor Layton to Date~So fun September 14, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this yesterday and played for 3 hours straight without noticing time passing. Funny because it is about time travel. There are so far no repeat puzzles and they are challenging. I love the story line of Luke and the professor traveling to the future. The animation is the best yet. There are a lot more scenes where Luke and the Professort talk just like a video and some of the scenes are like a movie of real London.

If you like games that challenge your brain and have a story line to follow this it is. I mastered the first edition and I am almost done with the Diabolical Box one but seem to be stuck in a loop on the train. You still search for hidden coins and talk to people you will recognize from former games. There are 165 puzzles and at the end you can unlock hidden content more games just like the last two.

Love it! Professor Layton fans don't miss this one it is truly the BEST!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Series- Even more fantastic game! September 19, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
NOTE: this review is spoiler free, so if you've played through the game and wonder why I refer to a person or place, etc., by a certain title, know I am trying not to spoil it for others.
Let me just say-WOW! These games never fail to stun me with their awesomeness! Beautiful artwork, great stories, excellent vocal work are all things that make these games some of my favorites. And this one blows the first two out of the water.
First of all, the graphics are just gorgeous. Unique, quirky, and beautiful, particularly for the graphically-challenged DS. But Layton takes the small, pixelated screens and turns them into works of art.
The characters! OMIGOODNESS! The characters are so lovable it's impossible not to fall in love with them. This game boasts more of the trademark bizarre people the series has been known for. People of all sects of life populate the world of future London. Some of the voice acting is simply stunning. Despite the fact that Luke and Flora sometimes make me want to stuff cotton in my ears, the rest of the cast is superb. Layton is charming and gentlemanly as ever. But it's the new characters that really touched my heart. Dr. Stahngun's emotion-filled voice was a delight to listen to. Celeste was so real and pleasant that I wanted to cry. My absolute FAVORITE was future Luke. He was simply fantastic. At one point he screams, "It won't end this way!" and I actually got the chills.
The story and cutscenes are simply brilliant. Although I admit I figured out a few of the game's little twists, it was still awesome to watch all of the complex mysteries come together. The cutscenes are works of art. I loved how most of this game was character driven and you got to see some backstory.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the first 2 November 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't write reviews often, only when there aren't may product reviews already or my opinion varies from the majority of reviews. I am writing this one because of the latter - I am supporting the other reviewer who gave it 3 stars. I should say that I am a fan of the Professor Layton series and have both other games. The first (Curious Village) was my favorite, followed by the Diabolical Box and lastly this one.

No need to review the story line as some have already done that. The story line is fine. The problem is that there is WAY too much dialogue (reading) this time and the puzzles are too easy. It seems that the Curious Village had the best variety of types of puzzles and they seem to be running out of new ideas each time. In this version I like the car mini game, but again I usually solve the routes in minutes - wish they were a bit more challenging. The parrot mini game is clever, but seems disproportionately hard compared to the car mini game. I prefer both of these mini games to the stupid tea one in the Diabolical Box. There is also a sticker mini game that I don't care for. It's not too easy or hard, I just think it's dumb / perhaps it's too much reading again for me in my gaming preference. As for the new "super hint" option, I guess I like the option. It's good for when my 10 yr old daughter plays. She can decide if it's worth it to buy the extra hint or not. The "super hint" really does spell out the solution for you. Before this, I was my daughter's super hint!! Now it will cost her!

Overall I'm glad I bought the game. I am a puzzle fan. I would also buy it as a gift for someone who likes the series, but if choosing only one of the 3 - go with the Curious Village. If you are tight on $$ you might want to wait for a used copy or discounted price. I think for puzzle games out there, the Layton series is the best. I will certainly by the next one in the series if there is a next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars We did this as a family unit.
This was fun to tackle over Xmas a few years ago. My daughter didn't think she'd like it...then once she began solving the puzzles it became quite absorbing. Good clean fun.
