Level-5 expanded the Professor Layton series with a crime solving game for iOS. Layton Brothers: Mystery Room sounds like it might star Hershel’s long lost brother, but no this game is all about Layton’s son. Alphendi Layton works in Scotland Yard and his first case in Layton Brothers: Mystery Room is to find out who murdered a woman in a hotel.
The game looks more like Ace Attorney titles since you help Alphendi collect clues at the crime scene, point out contradictions, and confront culprits. You can get the first two cases in Layton Brothers: Mystery Room for free. Another seven cases are available as in-app purchases.
This game also brings up a new mystery… when did Professor Layton have a son?
