About a month ago I received a super awesome package from Nintendo & Brand About Town… (Have I mentioned I love BAT? They’re incredible and make me want to do my happy dance 24/7. Not to mention that Justine is probably one of these sweetest persons I’ve ever met.) Anyway. Once I stopped bouncing around in joy I got down to ripping into this great gift: The lastest installment of the Professor Layton series: Professor Layton & The Unwound Future… and this kickass swanky mini top hat*.
This is actually the first Prof. Layton game I’ve ever played, but I love puzzle and strategy games. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good round of SMASH & KILL too… but I’d probably pick a strategy game first. Best thing about this series, even though it’s a story driven game, you can just jump in with any title. I don’t need to know anything about the game to get started. It gives me little “how to’s” along the way in case I do need some help.
I also have a mildly short attention span for story based games… Luckily that’s not an issue with this. There’s enough puzzles thrown in that it’s not too long before I find another one and dive right in.
If I can give you any hint about the puzzles:
- Don’t over think them all. Yeah, some of them are tricky. But some times it is the easy answer.
- Use the freaking memo function! Doodle all over that screen until you figure it out. It truly does help.
I want to give a HUGE thanks to BAT & Nintendo for this awesome package. Without it, my hours stuck at the airports for my recent vacation would have sucked majorly. Also, now that I have a 90-minute commute one way… yeah… going to beat this game.
*With such a swanky top hat… I did what any nintendo enthused gal would do… Put it on my cats.
