Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
The first Layton game on the 3DS is one of the best. Miracle Mask is the second game in the prequel trilogy (following the events of The Last Specter) and has Professor Layton and Luke Triton exploring the mysterious town of Monte d’Or. Naturally, the town is not what it seems, as citizens begin disappearing, flying into the air, and being plagued by an ominous masked man. The puzzles are a joy, combining the standard Layton puzzles we’re used to and brand new style puzzles that take advantage of the 3DS’ unique and powerful settings. You don’t need to have played the previous games in the series to enjoy this one, but Miracle Mask will be enjoyed more if you’re played the previous games in the series. Which are all worthwhile as well.
