The 50 Best Puzzle Games of All Time

20. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Year: 2010
System: DS

The third game starring Level-5’s titular mystery non-detective (and his sidekick) delivers more of what you expect from Layton: an engrossing story (this time about time travel and thematically re-visting the past), impressively high production values in a charming, European-style world and brain-busting puzzles. In Layton’s world, everyone is obsessed with brain teasers—you can’t even have a conversation most times without getting into some sort of conundrum to solve, whether challenging your abilities for logic, spatial problems or math. Good luck with some of the bonus ones.
