CrossPix Magic is a collection of nonogram puzzles that are fun and challenging to complete, we feature easy to hard puzzles for the beginner and the expert alike.

In 1987, Non Ishida, a Japanese graphics editor, won a competition in Tokyo by designing grid pictures using skyscraper lights which are turned on or off. At the same time and with no connection, a professional Japanese puzzler named Tetsuya Nishio invented the same puzzles.

This is the basis that CrossPix is based upon, these puzzles are also known as Paint by Numbers, Griddlers, Pic-a-Pix, Picross, Prisma Pixels, Hanjie and many others.

We have added a little more to the art of these puzzles, in order to solve all puzzles you must first unlock them with CM Points, which, can be earned by solving puzzles, the more complex the puzzle the more points it takes to unlock but also the more it points you will earn. You can use points to purchase hints which will aid you in the solving of the more complex puzzles.

★ Full Screen in OS X Lion.
★ Over 200 unique and interesting puzzles.
★ Full featured step by step Instructions

Great with a few flaws for the experienced

Very addicting for people who enjoy solving puzzles because it works great with a handful of puzzles for free. Using points to unlock new puzzles is a brilliant idea and easily scales to keep all levels of players happy. Unfortunately, the interface and some puzzles leaves me wishing for more.

Interface, perfect except it wasn't designed for speedy users that enjoy zipping through puzzles. It is either my trackpad or the program doesn't support two mouse buttons. Having to constantly click between fill and empty completely destroys my train of thought and I'm forced to focus on switching between the two as little as possible which costs time in the end when you try to remember what all you meant to mark. Also, dragging along tiles that are already marked with the same marking removes them (along with another problem) will definitely cause confusion and waste time if you don't pay attention.

Flawed puzzles, probably not as nice and simple as the puzzle makers believe. Just like how sudoku puzzles can have multiple solutions, these puzzles can have multiple "correct" solutions. Unfortunately, the program enforces only ONE "correct" solution so when you get to the end with at least two possible solutions to complete the puzzle, you are taking a risk of entering the "wrong" solution and receive a penalty. I have already encountered two puzzles with multiple solutions already (and guessed wrong for both) and I'm not sure if I want to continue at the risk of becoming penalized in other flawed puzzles.

Aside from my first issue above, this is a great program for beginners and intermediate players.

I couldn't stop myself from playing this game since I've downloaded it. It's absolutely an addictive and very challenging game for those who love puzzle games. Unfortunately, it only has 30 puzzles and after you solved them, you have to purchase the extra puzzles. I wonder why in the features it says over 200 puzzles while its only 30 free puzzles to solve.

Does not work properly with ElCaapitan

I really loved these monograms, but since downloading El Capitan, the game does not work properly. You can no longer ready and of the text. I hope this is updated and perhaps add more games.
