Synopsis
Professor Layton receives a letter asking for help from Luke. The strange thing is that this letter is from 10 years in the future, and the Luke in question is not Professor Layton’s young apprentice, but rather his older self. According to the future Luke, the London of the future has been brought to the brink of ruin by Professor Layton’s future self, who is the head of the largest crime syndicate in town. It seems the only man who can save London and stop the evil Professor Layton of the future is Professor Layton himself.

Gameplay

Like all games in the Professor Layton series Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is a single player puzzle adventure. Puzzles are essentially brainteasers touching on a large variety of puzzle types, including spatial orientation, logic, riddles and many more. The game's story reveals itself as the player successfully solves a minimum number of puzzles that she/he faces using the DS stylus to move throughout the game's hand-drawn style game environments. Success at puzzle solving earns the player in-game coins. A certain number of coins can also found by simply exploring the game environment. Players are given multiple chances to solve puzzles and when stuck can choose to spend coins in order to buy hints. The game keeps track of puzzles found, puzzles solved, the player's score and playing time, and features easy-to-use save functionality, a journal for note keeping and an area to save items found for later use. In addition to the game's 165 built-in puzzles, additional puzzles will be available for download on a weekly basis for a limited time after game launch.
