— The Story —
After solving a multitude of curious conundrums, renowned archeologist Professor Layton receives a rather peculiar letter.

The sender of this letter is none other than his assistant Luke...but from 10 years in the future! "Future Luke" has found himself in quite a predicament. The London he knows and loves has been thrown into absolute chaos.

Initially thinking that Luke may have simply been pulling his leg with a harmless jest, the professor cannot help but recall the terrible events that occurred the previous week...

The start of which was an unveiling ceremony of mankind's first time machine, attended by many prominent figures from throughout the nation.

During a demonstration, the time machine went out of control and engulfed the audience in a terrible explosion.

Several of the attendees mysteriously vanished into thin air, including Prime Minister Bill Hawks.

Unable to shake the feeling that the time machine's explosion may somehow be connected, Professor Layton and Luke set off to the location mentioned in the letter, a clock shop on Midland Road in Baldwin, embarking on what might be the biggest mystery they have ever encountered.

Already 100% completed it

It came out 5 days ago and I finished it yesterday after grinding it for 18 hours. Unwound Future already held the spot of one of my favorite games of all time, and I basically sinked time into nothing but this for the past week. The atmosphere of this game is truly incomparable and you won’t find it anywhere else. The plot is deeply impactful, and to my knowledge there are no loose ends. Every story beat, every interaction, it has a purpose, and you become ingrained in the wonderful world they present you. The puzzles all vary in difficulty, and because not all are necessary to complete the game, anyone who finds them difficult is able to simply move on to those that work for them. The art and style are unique as well, and all the landscapes and puzzles have unique painting-esque portraits to match. the player is able to play the game as they wish, and it all works perfectly. I could never give this game anything other than five stars. It’s marvelous in every way.

And to Level-5, if you’re reading this, there’s nothing I want more than to see my favorite game franchise make its way to mobile in its entirety. Keep up the good work out there.

This is such a blast from the past

I just got this on my iPad and man is it great seeing the game in HD instead of the tiny pixilated DS screen. It’s been over a decade since I played this + I haven’t played any of the IOS rerelease before this so it feels very new! Thank you so much for completing the trilogy of my favorite childhood game!

( Still think you sould port these 3 games to the switch, I’m sure it would be a similar experience to a iPad mini)

As a huge fan of Layton 1 and 2, I was extremely excited to play Layton 3 and bought it on day 1. This game is not nearly as good as the previous two. Layton is a puzzle game. This game game chooses to forego that and instead lean HEAVILY on being a “visual novel”. There is about 3x the amount of text in this game as previous games. Random bystanders that you click to try to trigger a puzzle can blather on with flavor text for several screens before introducing a puzzle or yielding nothing. Much of this is an Attempt to give context to the puzzles, but the context is unneeded. The end result is thinking, “I want to do a few puzzles while I have time” and realizing that your entire play session may just be clicking through dialog with no puzzles in sight.

As for the puzzles, they are shockingly bad sometimes. many puzzles rely not on logic, but merely guesswork and assumptions. This is new for the series. There are also many puzzles that leave too many open ends to the phrasing. This is poison to a logic game.

This game is still worth playing but set your expectations. It’s not as good as the first two, especially the second.
