You’ll happily gobble up puzzle after puzzle, but as you fill out Layton’s suitcase and slowly uncover all the answers the game has to offer, you can’t help but be filled with an emptiness as you realize, this is really it.

Nothing other than a very specific series of actions will get you through these sadistic stages lined with enemies, piranha plants, and bottomless pits. There are even portions of levels where you literally have to get through them by bouncing off of moving bullet bills.
