Of all the games you could port, you have to port the worst one...great.

Came here to say fantastic news, was this game not well received?

Heard that many of the puzzle is ”trick” puzzle with unneeded info to solve them
One ex. was about a car and the answear was like 0/nothing
Try the mobile Cap 1 demo

What SwedishGalaxy94 said. A lot of the puzzles were cryptic puzzles with a 'trick' to them. But a lot of these puzzles required a discreet number answer, which doesn't really go well. Even if you realize the trick, you then need to guess which number the game expects from you.


It's less about logic and cleverness and more about guessing which trick the game wants you to use.

Then there's also the one puzzle that has been translated incorrectly and leads you to the exact opposite answer if you were to follow the instructions.

And the translation, in my opinion, is pretty damn terrible. Everything, and I mean everything, needs to be a pun. I looked into this and apparently the guy who translated this loves puns and just shoved them in there. It's incredibly jarring.

I like the first puzzle example as it's a bit outside the box, but I get how it could become annoying to have several puzzles "trick" you like that. The second puzzle like you said, doesn't make sense.

It is probably the worst Layton game, but I still had fun with it (and I still come back for the daily bonus puzzles).

Semi-spoilery elaboration: It certainly doesn't buck the trend of the puzzles being easier and less brainteaserish and more "fiddle with these mechanics until the solution presents itself" every game, and the game presents a couple central mysteries that frustratingly don't get resolved at all, and there are fewer music tracks than normal, but Kat herself is a pretty good protagonist and the individual cases + the way they tie together aren't bad (although relatively low-stakes compared to previous games).

No, Level-5, what you port to the Switch is the original trilogy! Not this...

I’d love to see all the Layton games (plus new ones!) on Switch. This is the only entry so far I haven’t played yet, so I’m pretty happy about this.

(Bummer to hear in other comments that this outing isn’t the greatest, though.)

I just finished up my gripes with the game in a comment above, if you're interested

Read it all and I appreciate you pointing me in the direction of your post. Thanks for giving me a clear idea of what I can expect from the game.

That's weird that they're adding button inputs considering nothing stopped them from doing that on the DS and 3DS entries.

Well in this case they have to if they want people to be able to play on the TV.

...You win this round, pal.

I'm glad about this since I skipped it on 3DS. Still not sure if I'll get it but makes me feel better about not getting it the first time.
