Professor Layton was one of my favorite game series for the Nintendo DS. I loved the short, but wonderfully animated and voiced videos sprinkled throughout the series. I enjoyed the setting, music, and really just about everything about it. Oh, and the puzzles. But what I hated was how EVERY GOD DAMN THING LED TO A PUZZLE!
Hey Prof, my dog died last night.
I’m sorry to hear that. Say, that reminds me of a puzzle!
Can you help me put this book back on the shelf?
Of course. By the way, can you figure out this riddle about books?
Regardless, I still enjoy the series. And so do the Japanese. A few months ago in Japan convenience stores around the country were selling small boxes of Professor Layton chocolates. Also, inside each box was a puzzle similar to what a player encounters in the games.
Below are pictures from inside the box as well as a puzzle and the solution.
