Nonograms appeared at the end of the 20th century and became popular all over the world. They are also known as Japanese crosswords, Japanese puzzles, Japanese drawings, PathPix, Griddlers, Paint by Numbers, Picross, hanjie etc.
Japanese crossword is a very popular puzzle game.
In the Nonograms, unlike conventional crosswords and arrowwords, a picture instead of words is conceal by means of numbers.
Please have a look at these black-n-white Nonograms. They are divided into several groups by resolution depending on the crossword width and height.
If you like Philippine puzzles, you will definitely like Nonograms too.
All Nonograms have their own single solution.
The grid is formed by horizontal and vertical lines. Numbers on the top and on the left show the sequence order of blocks of filled-in squares horizontally and vertically correspondingly. The blocks are unbroken, and two nearby blocks must have at least one empty (unfilled) cell in between.
The blocks follow one another exactly in the order shown by the corresponding numbers.
Nonograms are solved in the following way:
– First, you need to determine which cells are to be filled;
– Second, you need to determine which cells cannot be filled: these are marked with crosses.
This process is repeated until the crossword is solved.
– More than a thousand of free Japanese crosswords of various width and height sizes (10x10, 15x15, 20x20, 25x25, 30x30 etc);
– Zoom mode allows you to solve even large Japanese crosswords;
– Portrait and landscape orientation support;
– Undo option (up to 100 actions can be undone);
– Light and dark color scheme support;
– Font size is automatically changed depending on the size of the crossword and your device screen orientation and size.

Ratings and Reviews
Repeat puzzles, some unsolvable
The interface on this app is pretty good--not my favorite, but way, way better than most other ones. I appreciate the no-frills app and the sheer number of puzzles included. BUT. There are several repeated puzzles. I haven't gotten through all that many, and I've done that one same anchor puzzle in the Small section at least 3 times. And some of the puzzles are unsolvable without guessing. I've done my fair share of nonograms of many sizes, but some of these just aren't logically possible. Thanks for all the puzzles, but I'm getting frustrated doing the same ones over and over again and with having to abandon puzzles that aren't designed properly. I recommend doing a once-over on your puzzles to check for duplicates and problems in the designs.
Music will not stop
Even after an ad has stopped playing the music continues.
Can’t play background music
Great app generally, but 1-starring because music stops while playing. Makes it a bit worthless.
