Story sequences that aren't presented via video, use subtly animated still images.

The game features some seriously impressive production values for a DS game with tons of stylish, well-drawn FMV animation and voice-acted dialogue.
The villagers aren't eager to let any outsiders into their town... possibly because most of them are certifiably insane.
Each puzzle yields a certain number points or "picarats". Each unsuccessful attempt to solve a puzzle reduces that number. The harder the puzzle, the higher the initial number of picarats.
One of the easier puzzles from very early in the game. Don't count on them staying that way for long.
"I GOT YOU ASS!" A short animated sequence that plays after you have submitted your answer will have you questioning your own logic each and every time.
Talking to another villager who might or might not be morbidly obsessed with riddles... who am I kidding - everyone in this game is.
And this is what happens if you screw up. Occasionally the game will drop a helpful tip during one of these.
