Funny: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

  • Penny Arcade complained about having to sort out "some jackhole's insane chicken scratches." Puzzle 17 in Unwound Future has you do just that.
  • When Luke, Layton, and Don Paolo are escaping through an underground secret passage, which is too dark to see anything.
    Luke: Ow! What did I just walk into?
    Don Paolo: I don't know, maybe a wall?
  • When Don Paolo finds out Claire is in love with Hershel, he runs away crying. Into a river. And he doesn't notice.
  • Really, Don Paolo had a good deal of funny moments in this game. Another good one would be when he lampshades Luke making an overly obvious remark by outright calling him Captain Obvious.
  • They dedicated a cutscene to revealing who Granny has sent to take over her job. Surprisingly not the bee we've been dealing with. It just pops out of nowhere and that it's an actual cutscene...
  • The cutscene at the top of the tower where Don Paolo reveals that he has been disguising as Layton ever since everyone entered the tower. In the background, you can see Flora silently backing off without taking her eyes from him - a moment ago, she had been clinging to his arm. The funny is made a little bittersweet, however, when you remember that this is the first time she's seen him since the previous game - you know, when he kidnapped her and took her place with Layton and Luke.
  • A simultaneous Moment of Awesome and Funny, when the Laytonmobile starts flying, we get this:
    Luke: Wow! We're actually flying! Can you believe it?
    Layton: Yes, Paul[Don Paolo] was always very good with machines.
    *Beat*
    Luke: Um, Professor? Just when did you learn how to fly a plane?
    Layton: A plane? This is an automobile!
