The first entry in a new series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village is a collection of 150 brainteasers presented in an adventure-style format. Professor Layton is sent to investigate the village of St. Mystere, whose offbeat residents take delight in baffling visitors with riddles, sliding puzzles, optical illusions, spatial reasoning, mazes, and tests of logic. Players can interact with a number of characters, explore various areas around the village, and learn more of the story through hand-drawn animated cut-scenes. By solving each puzzle, players will move closer to discovering the whereabouts of an affluent baron's prized treasure. In addition to touch-screen controls, The Curious Village on DS supports downloadable content via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
