Nonograms, also known as pic-a-pix, paint by numbers puzzles, crucipixel, edel, figurepic, grafilogika, japanilaiset, karala, kare, logicolor, logigraphe, oekaki, pikurosu or ristikot, started appearing in Japanese puzzle magazines. Non Ishida published three picture grid puzzles in 1988 in Japan under the name of "Window Art Puzzles". Subsequently, in 1990, James Dalgety in the UK invented the name Nonograms after Non Ishida, and The Sunday Telegraph started publishing them on a weekly basis.
In this puzzle type, the numbers measure how many unbroken lines of filled-in squares there are in any given row or column. To solve a puzzle, one needs to determine which cells will be boxes and which will be empty. Later in the solving process, the spaces help determine where a clue may spread. Solvers use a dot to mark cells they are certain are spaces.
Ratings and Reviews
Well designed enjoyable puzzle
I've been playing this for years and find myself coming back to it again and again. Calming and absorbing with a good range of puzzle difficulty. My only slight quibble is that I wish new puzzles were added more often.
Customisation is definitely lacking e.g. some difficulty settings seem to be unavailable like how you cant turn off the the auto cross out of numbers, and how the symbols are set as a square and a dot. Also a bit annoying how you have to select the square at the start of each puzzle.
Otherwise a solid game
My favourite game
This is my favourite game of all time across all platforms. It’s challenging but when you get a puzzle that you’ve been working on for a while you feel very smart.
