Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy (Mobile) Review

Lady Layton Takes the Case!

The puzzle-loving Professor Layton first appeared on the Nintendo DS in 2007, where he unraveled the mystery of a curious village.

Although there are two less games here, there is more aesthetic variety between Mega Man 7-10, and the quality of this action platformer remains as solid as ever.
