Very short, especially when you figure out the culprit early (which is easy)

In a lot of the cases, it’s easy to figure out who the killer is, which makes the whole case easy to figure out. Because of this, the cases are very short, only took about 5 minutes each when paying full attention.
Also, I was confused by a cutscene at the beginning of the prologue, which says something like “that night he killed me”, and it appears as though Lucy is the speaker, because of what is said after - “detective Constable baker! Are you paying attention?”. Despite this, she never dies? So why does she say that Layton murdered her if she doesn’t die?

Truly Incredible.

Wow... this is the only game that I've ever paid money for and can I just say that I do not regret my purchases whatsoever. I instantly fell in love with the characters as soon as I started playing the game - as an avid lover of the Professor Layton franchise, it is safe to say that this game certainly does the franchise justice. I love it!
However, once I played the whole game a few times over, I didn't play on it for a while. The next time I logged on though, the app crashed and it was impossible to get back on it. I hope the app has updated now so I'm able to play it again.
I definitely recommend downloading this app. Yes, to get the full experience you do have to get 2 in-app purchases, however it is 100% worth the money.

A great and unique game!

This is one of my favourite mystery games so far! It’s really unique from any other murder mystery game I’ve played, as you get to investigate the crime scene for evidence and work out yourself who the murderer was and how they did everything. The only improvement I’d say is perhaps providing more suspects to make it a little harder to choose from, and being able to interview more than just the prime suspect. You do eventually get to do this but only quite far into the game. I also like that there is an ongoing character story and development alongside all of the cases!
