Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Category: Video Games

Personal Evaluation: I love puzzles and riddles, and I loved that these were individual puzzles within the greater puzzle. Some of the puzzles are classic ones (move one matchstick, get all the animals to the other side of the river) so I just knew the answer, but some were really hard. You get three hints which you have to pay for with coins you find on your adventure, and some of the puzzle hints did not help at all.

What might interest children: I think most kids would find this game pretty challenging. It takes a long time – I played for hours and was nowhere near the end – so you definitely get your money’s worth. It’s educational without banging you over the head with it. I would recommend this game to any kid, and you never know, it might turn into parent-child bonding time if they need an adult’s help! They could also collaborate with a friend, which would also be fun.
