Professor Layton and the Curious Village is an AWESOME, AWESOME game full of puzzles and brain teasers. I can’t wait for the sequel!!! now that I’ve thoroughly beaten the game, I can only wait for the weekly puzzles. Penny Arcade did a great take on the game that I love in Professor Layton and the Perpetual Torment.
And whoever implemented Puzzle Quest’s path traversal either enjoys plotting convoluted paths, or judging by the inconsistencies in the path selections, really sucks at graph theory. Um, hello? There’s a subset of algorithms for the SHORTEST PATH problem for a REASON. It’s not like they’re finding the shortest path for randomly changing graph configurations. Every town/node is fixed. They could have hard coded it!!!
