Professor Layton returns, fresh from unravelling the mysteries of last year’s Curious Village, and his latest adventure sees him investigating the death of his mentor, Dr Schrader, slainwhile in possession of the Elysian Box – a mysterious relic said to kill anyone who opens it. To progress, the Professor must again solve more than 150 logic, numeric and spatial puzzles posed by the game’s quirky inhabitants. Bold, colourful graphics and polished presentation further enhance an entertaining experience, making this a great alternative to Sudoku.
