Great game, some small improvements.

I love this game. People are complaining about having to use real money to buy tokens are wrong. You can replay any level which will now cost “coins” (which are plentiful). Once you complete the replay you can receive up to 3 tokens each time. Even if you replay the puzzle it is still a challenge as you can hardly memorize an object and it’s squares so it is still fun and a good time filler. Some levels have certainly been difficult and occasionally have stumped me but you can solve all of these using logic and process of elimination. A hint is never required to solved. I only give this 4 stars because of course there are numerous ads as with most free games. I do opt for extra ads to gain more tokens and/or the occasional free level. However sometimes the tokens do not appears as stated in some reviews. It is frustrating and happens more commonly than I would expect. The biggest downside I have noticed is the game does not seem to sync across devices. I have started playing on my ipad primarily because it isn’t as small and my progress is not saved on my account and therefore cannot continue from where I left off if I were to switch to my phone. Lastly, I would love to see more achievements and challenges as they only can be achieved within the first puzzle pack and I am beyond that point.

Amazing! I don’t know how they do it.

What’s so amazing? Well, I’ve played hundreds of these “nonogram” type puzzles, and it seems, eventually, you’ll find a puzzle in a series that you will be forced to use a clue or two in order to solve the puzzle. In Picture Cross, I completed every one of the summer puzzles without ever needing a clue! That doesn’t mean I didn’t have to start over from scratch a few times; I’m not saying I don’t make plenty of errors, but when I patiently went back and reworked the puzzles (often more than a few times!) I found I could complete every one of the puzzles from the simplest to the trickiest without resorting to any kind of clue whatsoever! That, to me, puts this game way above all others in this category.
The only change I would like to see is for the Xs (that you put in the squares) to be either much thinner or greatly toned down to like a 30% value. The bold dark brown Xs as they stand are just a bit too distracting. It would be nice too if we could change the color of the boxes as well. Brown is…well…brown.
But my thanks to the developers for making this game so enjoyable, challenging, and somehow always solvable*. *well, as far as I’ve gone, this is what I’ve found to be the case, anyway.
Edit: I’ve now completed the “winter” puzzle and still have had no need to resort to the use of hints.

Great game!

For a while, I found these types of games almost impossible to do because I just had a hard time learning strategies to use while playing them, but now that I know a few tricks I absolutely love them! This one in particular because there are so many that range from super easy to super hard and you can just play forever.. That is if you have enough tokens, which is one of my minor complaints about this game. You can earn hundreds of coins in a short amount of time, but hardly any tokens which you need to unlock each puzzle. It’s kind of annoying because I would play these all day but I constantly run out of tokens and have to wait until the next day for the daily reward or watch a bunch of ads for one token each and you can only watch 8 ads per day as a way to earn tokens. There’s packages you can buy but I play free games because they’re free, not so I can spend money. Especially with how fast the tokens go. The puzzles don’t all cost the same amount of tokens to unlock so they can go pretty quick. So I just open the game every day and earn my tokens to save up for a bit and then play until I run out, and then do the same thing over again. Other than that I love it! If you like these types of puzzle games then you’d really enjoy this game.
