“There are tales of a box that brings death upon any who dare open it. Tell me, do you think those rumors could be true?”

With over 17 million units sold worldwide, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is the second installment of the popular Professor Layton Series, digitally remastered in HD for mobile devices.

Professor Layton, the world-renowned archeologist, and his trusty assistant Luke have tackled some of the toughest mysteries in the world. When Dr. Andrew Schrader, Professor Layton’s friend and mentor, inexplicably passes away upon taking possession of the mysterious Elysian Box, the only clue left behind is a ticket for the opulent Molentary Express. Layton and Luke embark on a voyage of discovery, unaware of the extraordinary twists and turns that await them.

Featuring a distinctive artistic style that brings the old-world charm of the Layton Series to life, this delightful adventure will have you traveling into the unknown alongside Professor Layton and Luke. Look out for familiar faces, but don't be surprised if you encounter new blood, too.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box brings together more than 150 brain teasers, including slide puzzles, matchstick puzzles, and even trick questions to flex players’ observation, logic, and critical thinking skills. And rather than just selecting challenges from a list, players uncover puzzles through conversations with the characters they meet, or by investigating their surroundings.
With more voiced sections and animated cut scenes than its predecessor, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is sure to both challenge and delight players.

Literally one of my favorite games! I’m so happy they’ve started bringing them to mobile so I can play them all over again. The puzzles range from quick and easy to long and challenging. However, the actual draw of this game is its story, which is funny and emotional and intriguing and mysterious. Big fan and I am looking forward to more of these games in the future!

This port is all but perfect except for one thing...

This is a near perfect port of the original DS game!

My only gripe is the “true” solution for one of the puzzles near the end isn’t the same as the original! It was such a cool way to solve the puzzle and provided one those “omg” moments that’s unforgettable.

I won’t spoil it for those who have never played the original, but the current solution doesn’t even make sense and robs today’s players of one of the greatest moments of the Professor Layton series.

So Psyched!

I loved these beautiful and challenging games back when they were on DS, and am so incredibly excited to play them again! The pictures are so beautifully clear and the puzzles are the same balance of challenge and uniquity! Absolutely love the adaptation...
