Follow the Twisted Path To the Truth
Many small puzzles, one big mystery
For Professor Layton, solving a big mystery involves untangling many smaller mysteries, and each has its own set of brain-teasing puzzles.
People are puzzles that you can solve through conversation. Who has something to hide? You won’t know until you start asking questions.
Clues are hiding in plain sight. As you move from locale to locale, stop to examine anything of interest with your magnifying glass.
Discoveries big and small often lead to puzzles, and that's where the Professor and his team shine as investigators.
Want a Hint? It'll Cost You
There are no shortcuts to good detective work, but that doesn't mean hints are out of the question. Unearth hint coins as you explore the game's locales, then use these coins when you're stuck on a puzzle to help guide you to the proper solution.
It's All About
Picarats are the reward for solving puzzles. The harder the puzzle, the more Picarats you earn. Do your best with each puzzle you face, and your diligence will surely be rewarded.
