Professor Layton and the Curious Village review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Professor Layton and the Curious Village from Level-5 and Nintendo for the Nintendo DS. This is a puzzle game in which you follow renowned puzzle solver Professor Layton and his apprentice on a mysterious story full of mystery. And puzzles. It's like a point-and-click adventure in that you're walking around the game world and exploring things, and puzzles come about as a result of that. Some of them are required to progress the story, but a lot of them are optional. A lot of them are also hidden, so there's definitely some incentive to look around and meet people. This video review features video gameplay footage of Professor Layton and the Curious Village for the Nintendo DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

because puzzles don't pay much.
But I wanted to do puzzles so badly, I was willing to live in poverty to do it.
Excellent. Capitals of States.
Um, Carson City.
Oh, that was good.
Snow White's Dwarfs.
Oh, boy. Uh...
Snoopy? Is that one of them?
No, not Snoopy. No.
Snappy's not one of them either.
So when I took over the job at the Times in 1993...
I thought I really understood puzzle solvers.
It's addressed to "Mr. Will Shortz, the smartass crossword puzzle hero. "
"This one last Saturday was ridiculous. "
"You should be hanged by your cojones for this Monday puzzle. "
"Give me a break. " "I couldn't solve it even with the answers in front of me. "
"Dear Sir or Madam. "
"It's Monday, Mr. Shortz, not Friday. "
"This is both idiotic and completely unfair. "
"This kvetching thing that's going on I can't seem to get a grasp on it. "
"Who in the hell ever heard of three letters in a single box?"
"The kvetchers cry: 'Oy vey'? I don't get it. "
"How is it used? Is it a Northern thing?"
"Frogs hop, sir, but toads do not. They waddle. "
"You have managed to take all the fun out of it. Congratulations. "
"No wonder William F. Buckley stopped doing these puzzles. "
"You are sick, sick, sick indeed. Sincerely"
The best part of the week for me is reading the mail.
"P.S. You're sick, sick, sick. "
Hearing from sobbers is the best part of the job.
You don't do this for the money or for anything else.
Those are all secondary things.
The biggest thing is to stretch people's brains and bring joy to their lives.
New puzzle type alert!
Find and Fill: Basically, just try to find an image that is blacked out in the picture and fill it in with all the same color. This is kind of dubious at times because artificial difficulty when arise when there are tiny, almost invisible pieces that either have to be filled in or can't be filled in to be successful. I still think Image Hole wins in the annoying factor, though. Also, you can't even zoom in on the picture to get a better look at the detail of the images!
Of course, everything is really easy except, you guess it, Overlap. Not only that, but this Overlap is particularly hard since it offers an auto-puzzle solver as a reward. Definitely the hardest puzzle I've done so far, if I hadn't sped it up it would have gone over the 11 minute mark..and been way too boring to watch. The puzzle is hard not just cuz it's an Overlap, but also because it suffers from some serious "pieces could be anything" syndrome.
