I'm reviewing this for my Dutch adventure website (, but I'm torn. Not a lot of adventuring, but the story is good, the graphics and sound ok and the puzzles (even though the reason behind most of them is stupid), they are pretty challenging and are puzzles that make you think about it, long after you have put your DS away. I do miss a notebook feature like Hotel Dusk, a notepad and a calculator provide a lot of help to me so far.
