Doctor Lautrec & the Forgotten Knights gets browser demo

Konami has released an online demo for its upcoming solve-'em-up, Doctor Lautrec & the Forbidden Knights. The preview bundles a few of the game's puzzles and early plot sequences, giving players a taste of what to expect when the 3DS title's released in the US this December. Click here to try a simulation so realistic, it's like you're really playing on a 3DS, in 2D, with no buttons.

The demo includes a variety of the puzzles to be found in Doctor Lautrec, from spot-the-difference pictures to those games of Minesweeper that were so common in the tombs of 16th-century French aristocrats. There's further variety to be found in the game proper, including more of the gameplay mechanics that separate Doctor Lautrec from its obvious point of comparison, Level-5's Professor Layton series. However, until American players get a chance to go hands-on with the 3DS cartridge proper, this is a pretty good taste of what's to come. Find out more on the game in our preview from earlier this year.

    Once i figured out what the bloody hell was going on in the minesweeper clone puzzle it became quite fun but the previous puzzles (if you can even call them that) were rather uninspired.

    If I have to sit through an entire game with that voice acting I will shoot myself.

    The description of the box-breaking game is wrong. The numbers display the amount of bomb-free cells, not the number of bombs

    It's a watered down Layton...
