Last week, we reviewed Murder Files which redefined the way we played detctive games on iOS. Going through Layton Brothers Mystery Room, we realise that there are still better methods, unexplored.

We play the role of Lucy Baker who joins a famous detective Alfendi Layton, assisting him in solving murders. 2 cases are initially available for free and 7 more for 5 bucks. It’s not a spoiler but I can’t help saying that the 3rd case is mind blowing!

In Murder Files, we had a little or minor role in making deductions and more effort was on solving puzzles. But Layton Brothers Mustery Room is a complete detective game where our inference is of prime importance. Though the gameplay might seem a bit complicated and confusing at first, soon we learn that knack of solving murders.

We are introduced into such methodology that we come to think of ourselves as a Sherlock!

The graphics are really simple with conversation clouds. The sound effects on the other hand are super exciting! But to be honest, we’re too much into the game to notce them.

The mysterious murders, cracking clues one by one, putting them all together and unveiling the mask of the culprit. Questioning of the culprit is jaw dropping with strong alibis, unexpected twists, turning of Layton and breaking of the mask!

In short, Layton Brothers Mystery Room is too good to be missed. Mystery Solved!

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Already bought the additional cases

Learning Curve:Medium-high

Who Is It For:Mystery lovers

What I Like:The concept and execution

What I Don't Like:Can be confusing sometimes
