Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy 3DS Game Review

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy 3DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 28, 2014

Puzzles worth solving. Read our game review of Professor Laytons latest puzzling adventure on Nintendo 3DS.

If you're a fan of puzzle games, you've no doubt played a game in the Professor Layton series for Nintendo portables. The original trilogy was released on the DS and garnered a good reputation for solid puzzles and good story telling and it's safe to say that reputation has been lived up to with Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. The final game in the Professor Layton Trilogy on 3DS.

Developer Level 5 and Publisher Nintendo close the book on Professor Layton's latest trilogy and do so in style.

In the beginning of the adventure, Professor Layton receives an invitation to inspect a so called living "mummy" that another professor has discovered. Along with his companions Luke and Emmy, Professor Layton accept the invite and set off on their trip. Not long after arriving at the mummy's location, Professor Layton discovers the found mummy is not what it first appears and is instead a young woman from the Azran civilization, named Aurora.

This new discovery sends Layton and crew on a globe trotting, puzzle-solving adventure that pits them up against a band of evil doers who seek to use the power of the Azran for themselves. The story is wonderfully told through beautifully animated cut-scenes that continuously had me appreciating the work that had gone into them while also motivating me enough to continue playing.

A puzzle game is only as good as its puzzles and once again Professor Layton, with help from you, the player, will be challenged with a wide range of puzzles and mini-games. My favorite of the mini-games is one where you're tasked with shooting enemy missiles right out of the sky by playing a "spot the difference" game. It requires fast thinking and hands. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is played completely with the stylis, so make sure you have one on-hand.

A couple of the puzzles genuinely had me scratching my head a few times but luckily there are "hint-coins" to find through-out the journey and these can be used to help you solve any tricky puzzles. Thanks to these coins, you'll never find yourself annoyingly stuck somewhere which is great news when you realize the amount of puzzles you have ahead. Dozens upon dozens of brain testers await,  and for the most part, are all a good time.

Another bonus, Nintendo and Level 5 will be releasing a new puzzle every day. So there will be plenty more content incoming. These are available to download via your 3DS over Wi-Fi.

I was playing the fan game Undertale Yellow and there's a character you encounter named Dalv. Dalv is a vampire yet an awkwardly shy vampire who hates intruders to his home. ...  What if he's related to the blooks? I mean... I know he's a fan made character but it's just a thought... let me explain (or at least try): Dalv (Vlad backwards) is a pinkish-purple skinned vampire who usually hides under a wood and walks around talking to himself . He has black hair in a shape close to Mettaton/ Hapstablook... and his theme...  has some  Death by Glamour vibes. Hmmm... let me know what you think...
