Layton's Mystery Journey [$15.99] is pretty great. Having originally debuted on the Nintendo DS, it took a long time to get a mainline entry on iOS. Level-5’s newest Professor Layton game released in July and it follows Katrielle Layton. She’s the daughter of Professor Layton who has gone missing. Shaun loved it a lot and you can read his review of it here. We even had it as our Game of the Week around release.

Layton’s Mystery Journey is available at a discount right now at $7.99. This is down from the initial price of $15.99. There are more costumes you can buy through IAP. Each costume also includes a bonus puzzle. If you have been eyeing this and wanting to spend a bit less, now’s your chance. Layton’s Mystery Journey is on sale for the first time. I hope Level-5 brings more mainline Professor Layton games to mobile soon because this one has been a perfect fit for the platform. Check out the forum thread here. Also Level-5 usually uses different app IDs for this across the world. If the link below or in the story doesn’t work, try looking for it through Level-5's App Store page.

    I was all for console quality on iOS but I held off for a while because I had many other games to play... now at this price (i didnt expect that sale tbh) its instabuy.

    Layton's Mystery Journey has never been on the Nintendo DS.
    It's not a mainline entry.
    It's not a Professor Layton game.

      And it's a little disappointing if you're expecting Professor Layton...

      It still feels as solid as a Layton title to me.

      Ok the story is more farfetched than ever but it isnt necessarily bad
