Challenging puzzle games aren't all that hard to find… on a handheld system. On the home console, however, the puzzle landscape is quite different. Sure, you've got games like Lumines and Hexic, but there's nothing quite in the same vein as a Professor Layton available. That's where Relentless Software and their new episodic mystery-fueled puzzler, Blue Toad Murder Files, come in. With a cartoonish style, and about a dozen brainteasers per episode, Blue Toad Murder Files tries to capture the essence and charm of Professor Layton, but falls just short due to a lack of challenge.
