The string one is interesting because you don't click on the tiles for the strings that cross them, but the strings that are crossing the tiles beneath them.

That string one was hard. I really enjoyed Curious Village but was frustrated enough that I didn't feel compelled to try the next few. Always thought the Diabolical Box sounded intriguing. Will probably get an older DS one before the new 3DS game, since I'm itching to see how Layton will look on my "new" DSiXL I picked up after the price drop.

The demos have got me a bit more interested in this game, I might pick it up. It was on my watch list, but having never played the franchise before, wasn't sure what I was getting into in terms of puzzle difficulty and content.

Like @LavaTwilight, the 1st one went through more quickly when I realised the swaps unraveled the strings below rather than the section inside the swapped tiles. The 2nd one was fairly straightforward.

These demos are much different than the past Layton games. Perhaps this is a turn in gameplay structure? Does anyone know if there still are puzzles structured in the same way as previous games?

Well, I basically got the first one by trial and error but I got the second one in two tries! One to see what would happen / test it out and I got it right after!

I loved the DS games, and I absolutely must have this when it comes out! Yes! I've missed you, Layton!
