App description: THE MUCH-LOVED LAYTON SERIES IS BACK WITH A 10TH ANNIVERSARY INSTALLMENT!

Developed by LEVEL-5, LAYTONS MYSTERY JOURNEY: Katrielle and the Millionaires Conspiracy is the latest game in the best-selling Layton Series and first official sequel debuting on mobile.

Join Katrielle Layton in the heart of London, as she becomes embroiled in a casual, comical, quizzical quest, which has its roots in our new heros search for her missing father, Professor Hershel Layton. Youll be whisked around Londons famous landmarks, from the Houses of Parliament to Tower Bridge, following Kat on her trusty bicycle, solving case after unlikely case, until she unwittingly uncovers the Millionaires Conspiracy.

Help Kat and company discover clues, unravel mysteries, deduce the truth, and solve original puzzles! Redecorate the agency and redress Kat in various outfits to suit the case at hand (or your mood). With twelve intriguing cases, seven multi-millionaires, and one whopper of a conspiracy, will Kat ever be able to find the missing professor?

Full of ingenious challenges, charming characters and clever plot twists, the latest Layton instalment will prove to you beyond a shadow of doubt that the truth IS stranger than fiction!

Based on a neogaf post the IAP are optional outfits that come with bonus puzzles. Sounds like they can be bought individually or in a bundle.

Thanks for this!

OK, so basically it looks like there are 15 sets of costumes that come with 15 extra puzzles, and each can be bought individually or in 2 bundles. Buying both bundles + the $16 price of the app apparently ends up being the cost of the 3DS version of the game ($40). Yeah, it's a little crazy for iOS, but it's fair. It's very, very fair giving us the exact same game with no compromises and considering us as equals.

I've never played these games. Can I get some reviews or can someone explain why they're so highly acclaimed?

Thanks!

I've never played a Layton game before and I want to buy this but I would love to hear impressions from others (probably after they get more time to play). I just hope there's enough content there and the replayability level. Or is it one of those games you just finish and sell it off?

The Layton games (not the spin-off on iOS) all have about 15-17 hours of content (this is without completing them to 100%) and this is the largest one of them all so far. You shouldn't be concerned about content.

Woke up. Opened the app store. Searched. Bought.

Fantastic games. The interweave puzzles and the story in a very charming way, great animation, a great package. Having bought all of the previous ones at full price, this is a steal.

Perhaps. But it will still take quite a bit - I'm under the impression all previous ones for me were 20+ hour affairs.
