Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask gets a browser demo

Untie a clown, ring a bell.

The upcoming puzzle adventure Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask now has a browser demo up on Nintendo's official UK site.

The demo features two puzzles from Hershel Layton's upcoming adventure. The first tasks you with rescuing a circus clown who's gotten himself tangled in his own balloons, while the second involves rigging a Rube Goldberg-esque device to ring a bell. Some cruelty towards cats may be required.

Unfortunately, we don't get much in the way of story or dialogue from these terse little nuggets of brain-teasers, but we do get the choice line "a fine puzzle for a gentleman." Ah Layton, don't ever change.

Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask will be available on 26th October, marking the series' debut on 3DS.
