Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (Nintendo DS)
Searching For Clues, Memories, The Towering Padoda,
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, also known as Professor Layton and the Lost Future is the third entry in the Layton series. While it is the last game is the first trilogy, it is actually the sixth game chronologically speaking.
Searching For Clues
This theme track plays while journeying throughout the town as you solve puzzles and inquire about the games larger mystery. It really sums up the games overall sound, and still feels very much like a Layton theme.
This is a very peaceful theme that solidifies some of the games story moments. The games composer, Tomohito Nishiura, is capable of jumping from very upbeat themes to these more poignant tracks quite seamlessly.
The Towering Pagoda is a large building in the game that Layton and his companions travel through, solving multiple puzzles along the way. It's a slightly menacing building and as such, its theme features a mix of this menacing idea, with the very European sounds of the Layton series.
