London Life Guide by snarkador / picopicolina

Updated: 02/21/2014

Overview

London Life is a mini game that comes with Professor Layton and the Last Specter. You choose a male or female character, and then control that character in their daily life in "Little London."

At the beginning of the game, you move into a room in Little London with very sparse furnishings. The main goal of the game is to help complete various requests for townspeople, all of whom are characters from the "main" Professor Layton game. Each day, there are a certain number of requests laid out in the daily newspaper, and as you complete them you obtain "Happiness" and "Wealth", and gradually gain access to better stuff.

The game is kind of like a cross between Animal Crossing and The Sims. There is no puzzle solving at all, but it's still quite fun!

Character Creation

The first thing you do in the game is create your character.

Gender

First, you'll be asked to select your character's gender: Female or Male. There are certain outfits that are only wearable by one gender, and each has their own hair styles to choose from, but otherwise there doesn't seem to be a difference between the two.

TODO: Is that true?

Look

Next, you'll specify your character's appearance by giving them an Expression, Hairstyle, Hair Color, Skin Tone, and Style. You can press the Y button to spin them around and get an idea of their side and back view as well. The "Style" attribute dictates your starting outfit.

  • Sporty: White T-shirt, Green Shorts, Red Sandals (C: 19, I: 14, F: 8)

  • Trendy: White T-shirt, Black Pants, Loafers (C: 15, I: 13, F: 18)

Trait

Next, you specify your defining trait. This basically gives your character a "special power" throughout the life of the game.

  • Great Cook: Your great cooking skills mean you're quick to learn recipes and never botch a dish.
  • Winning Smile: Your smile puts people at ease, so you're very approachable for quests and advice. [Adds +10% Happiness to completed requests?]
  • Stiff Upper Lip: Your unflappable spirit makes it hard for life's troubles to get you down.
  • Fashionissimo: Your unparalleled fashion sense gives you an extra boost of Happiness and Coolness.
  • Free Spirit: Your easygoing nature makes for a quick recovery when you're hurt, sad, or down.
  • Sweet Tooth: Your love of dessert means that eating sweets will help you regain Happiness. You're good at making desserts too.
  • Smooth Talker: Your natural charm makes you irresistible to the opposite sex. They'll have requests for you and will be generous as well.
  • Child at Heart: Your lovable but bumbling nature means you're always making mistakes, but you are the happiest person around.

TODO: Figure out exactly what these work out to mathematically in terms of affecting the game.

Name

Pretty self-explanatory. :)

Birthday

Also pretty self-explanatory. :)

TODO: What happens on your birthday? :)

Requests

The next thing you'll want to do is look for people with a "!" above their head. These folks will give you requests, and upon completing them you'll receive Happiness and/or Wealth, and also advance the story.

Requests come in three varieties:

  • Red: Major plot points, which only happen once.
  • Yellow: Key events that only happen once.
  • Green: Minor events that can happen multiple times.

Each has a "Requestor," a Location, and a Description. If the Requestor is someone you can't quite remember, the "Locals Met" menu item has a list of everyone's name and where to find them.

You can track your active and completed requests under the "Happenings" menu. Requests you've taken on and are in progress show up under the "Ongoing" tab. Those you've heard about but not yet started are under the "Grapevine" tab. "Complete" and "All" should be self-explanatory. :)

After you achieve certain milestones of requests complete, certain events will happen in the game:

  • 20: Emmy comes to town.
  • 50:
  • 100: Tony comes to town.
  • 200: Tony's sister Arianna comes to town.

Happiness and Wealth

Happiness is something like your "HP" in the game. When your happiness gauge is full, you'll earn more money when you perform jobs, you'll have better luck, and so on. Each time you complete a task for someone in town, this value will go up, and you can also increase it by spending Wealth (see below). You lose Happiness when something scares you (like you touch a bat, or someone yells at you) or when you have bad luck (your bait gets away from you while fishing, a bee stings you when you pick a flower). You gradually regenerate Happiness while sitting around at home, and can recover it in larger chunks either by eating food or by sleeping.

Wealth is money, and with Wealth you can buy items that townspeople ask for during requests, outfits for your character, furnishings for your room, or food to help you replenish Happiness. You can also literally buy Happiness, just like in real life. ;) Your maximum Happiness will increase at a rate of 50% (rounded down) of whatever you spend in terms of Wealth. So if you buy an item for 2,000 Wealth, your Happiness will go up by 1,000 points. While you will receive Wealth from townspeople when you complete requests for them, Wealth is primarily accrued by performing jobs; the more you do a job, the better your pay, and you also gain access to more well-paying jobs. You can also sell items you no longer need to gain wealth for 50% (rounded down) of what you paid for them.

Certain game events, such as moving into a better apartment, require a minimum level of Happiness and/or Wealth to achieve.

Your Room

Your room is your "home base" and it's where you go to recover Happiness, as well as where you go to sleep in a bed (which recovers Happiness), cook on a table (to create a random food item you've eaten often enough to learn), and store and retrieve items from a dresser (where can archive up to 200 items instead of the paltry 16 your normal "working" inventory allows). Each time you sleep you'll flip day and night. Certain characters and businesses are only available during the evening, and jobs can only be performed during the day. Each new day you'll receive a Newspaper, which outlines various Happenings around town. These translate to requests for you to complete for townspeople.

You can acquire and purchase various furnishings for your room, which will increase its "Decor" and "Atmosphere." There are 6 "categories" of room furnishings, denoted by colour:

  • Red: Basic
  • Green: Natural
  • Blue: New Wave Decor
  • Yellow: Childish
  • Pink: Cute
  • White: Elegant

The more furniture you pick within the same category, the higher your Decor and Atmosphere will increase.

TODO: Not sure what this does, precisely. Maybe a faster recuperation of Happiness?

From time to time you'll be told you have a roommate. This will take that character out of play, so watch it if someone like Mark becomes your roommate, because you'll no longer have the Casino as a Wealth-making option while he lives with you.

Decor determines who will try to be your roommate. As an example: Stachenscarfen will try to become your roommate if you have a decor of about 50 in a Basic room. While you're living in Humble Homes, your place is so small that you can't really fit enough decorations and still be able to walk around. So you might not be able to meet the requirements of some of the locals until you leave Humble Homes.

If a local likes your room, they'll stay for longer than one day, usually something you can tell by their dialogue. However, some locals will complain and stay for longer than one or two days though. Even though they could just go home or something.

Certain people will tell you what kind of rooms they like in their dialogue. For example, if you want to live with Emmy, you should have a basic room. She says that "a basic room will suffice" when you talk to her outside of Scotland Yard.

TODO: I haven't actually figured out what the point is of roommates, or what effect your Decor/Atmosphere have on them sticking around.

Outfits

Outfits affect your character's Coolness, Impact, and Formality traits. Each piece of clothing affects these values.

Some buildings require a minimum level of Formality in order to enter.

Livelihood

Here are the jobs available in the game, as well as their job titles and earnings. Once you earn a minimum threshold in a job, your job title is increased. Each job has 5 titles, and each earns progressively more money.

Trash Picker

This is a job literally anyone can do. Talk to Rodney in Town Hall to begin.

Your job is to run around the map and find trashballs, pick them up until you're told you've found them all, and then return to Town Hall for payment.

Once you've achieved "Litter Lifter" or better as a Trash Picker, you can become a Taxi Driver. Talk to Rodney in Town Hall to begin.

Your job is to drive to the taxi stand, wait for a passenger, take them to wherever they ask to go, then repeat until you get tired of it.

Passengers:

  • Subject 3: "Take me to the department store, quick-like! If we don't hurry, they're gonna sell out of that thing I want!" [100 Wealth]
  • Prosciutto: "Chomp chomp...Balsam Grill, please. I saw some fancy food in a magazine and realized I was--om nom nom--starving! [150 Wealth]

Juggler

This is a job literally anyone can do. Talk to Lili in Sasha Park to begin.

Your job is to juggle by throwing and catching balls Lili throws at you by pressing and holding the L and R buttons as the balls are about to hit the ground. After juggling successfully with one ball, Lili will throw you another, and so on until you start dropping them, then repeat. In addition to regular balls, Lili will also toss fruit, which is both harder to catch and cannot go as high. You score 20 points per successful catch, but if you do a twirl by pressing the right + Y buttons at once while balls are in the air, you score an additional 100 points per ball.

As you gain certain thresholds, additional characters will come to watch you juggle, and will increase the wealth you receive.

1000 points: Subject 3

TODO: Figure out formula. For level 1, anyway, it's:

1000 = 100 wealth 680 = 20 wealth

Ticket Agent

Once you've achieved "Capable Coach" or better as a Bus Driver, you can become a Ticket Agent. Talk to Beluga in Central Station to begin.

Your job is to pick pictures that correspond to words within in the destinations that passengers want to get to within the allotted time. For example, if the passenger specifies "Oxcomb Cross," you would first select the picture of a cow, then the picture of a comb, then finally the picture of the + sign. Repeat 5 times, each time with a progressive longer and more complicated name.
