Good but needs a few improvements

First let me start off by saying I absolutely love this game. It’s challenging so it keeps me occupied but it’s not impossible to beat which is how a game should be so good job on that. I do have just a couple of suggestions for improvement though. 1) I think it would be great if y’all could add a way to zoom in or something because on my phone the squares are really really small so it’s easy to accidentally tap the wrong one. 2) I think that for playing levels you should earn tokens more often instead of coins because the game requires tokens to keep playing and coins are only used for hints, which I never use. I have like 16,000 coins and hardly any tokens, which is aggravating because I never use coins. Or something y’all could do instead is make a way to buy tokens with in game coins that you’ve earned so that I can actually use my coins. 3) There are a few too many advertisements. Every time you click on something in the game it brings up an advertisement so I think that if there are going to be that many advertisements there should be a reward for watching them. Overall though this is a really great game and I really love it, I just think it could use a couple improvements.

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.

Overall bad

I love playing nonograms. I would consider myself to be extremely good at it. I play them 24/7.

Actually playing the game itself is fun. It’s just everything else that isn’t. The whole solve one nonogram to unlock the a part of the puzzle seems fine, and I can understand why some people like it. But I personally don’t, and it’s hard to zoom in on a certain piece you want to do. I would try and zoom in and accidentally press a piece I didn’t want to do and accidentally use my tokens to play it. I would much prefer have levels instead. Tokens itself are bad. For some levels, there’s a timer to see how long it takes you to finish the puzzle and you will use that amount of tokens for how long it takes you to finish. The “pause”button isn’t even a pause button. It’s literally the button that looks like the settings. The only way you know it’s the pause button is because it says pause at the top. The puzzles are deceptive. I would consider “hard” levels to be super hard. Most puzzles force you to buy hints too. You look at a puzzle at every single angle and there’s literally not even one move you can make without having to buy a hint. It forces you to use coins. The game mechanics could be a lot better too. I could keep going on and say at least 8 more problems but I feel like I’ve gone far enough. There’s definitely better nonogram games you can get.

Developer Response ,

We're sorry to hear you've had a problem with Picture Cross.

1. There's a confirmation dialogue before unlocking any puzzle - but we will look into how the Map View interface can be improved, particularly for the larger puzzle packs.

2. The timer you're seeing is the token recharge timer, it indicates the length of time until a token is added to your pool (if you currently have fewer than 10 tokens). It doesn't affect the unlock cost or completion reward.

3. All the puzzles in the game are solvable without using hints, by application of Picture Cross playing strategies. Please refer to the in-game help system (and video therein) for further details.

We hope this has helped, but if you need any further assistance with the game please don't hesitate to contact us through the in-game help system or by email at
