The best picross game
Have been playing this since release. I went through the puzzles in the 5x5 and 10x10 sets fairly easily. When going into the 15x15 this is where I have usually stopped with other games.
Not with this. There are so many puzzles to do it makes no sense. Almost like they don’t make games anymore and don’t care (Sigh).
I’ve forced myself to learn how to solve these harder puzzles. For a while I thought some boards were impossible without the use of hints but after staring and making my placements with more cross checking I’ve become a better picross player.
This is the game I have on phone and tablet and love playing through them again and again.
Also. I feel I have played this a lot (since release) and have only made it 49.6%. There are a lot of puzzles.
Love the puzzles; need notifications, better controls
As a Picross fan, I love flying through these puzzles. I enjoy the random selection of the puzzle as well, wondering what category I will get next. The old songs are awesome, especially when I hear Contra’s stage 1 or Bloody Tears.
It would be a five star game if it was capable of notifying me that a new boss puzzle attempt was ready. I don’t want to have to set a timer, especially if I can’t get to solving it right away. Controls could be improved as well. I like the controls from some of the other Picross games out there on mobile devices that allow me to drag the cursor around from touching anywhere on the screen and tapping to swap between blank, X, or filled in. Tap and drag can be used to fill in multiple blocks or Xs as well. Cursor controls don’t make sense on a mobile device and direct taps on the puzzles get difficult on large puzzles. Zooming is inconvenient because it is important to be able to see the entire puzzle.
With a couple of tweaks, this will be a five star game. The fact that the entire game is free is amazing as I definitely would have paid to get my Picross puzzle fix. Thank you for this wonderful puzzle collection, Konami!
Issue with crossed-out numbers
As you work on a row or column, entries in the list of digits to the side/top get crossed out as the game detects that you've finished a particular block of numbers. Unfortunately, there seems to be an error in the algorithm so that incorrect information is given rarely on incomplete lines. For instance, the game may cross out a "2" indicating that the block of two on the line you're working on is finished and is supposed to be part of a block of 2. It can happen that it is actually supposed to be part of a larger block, or a different block than is indicated. I have concrete evidence of this happening precisely twice in two puzzles (with 40% of puzzles completed), but I suspect that it happens with a higher frequency (since restarts due to mistake are much higher in this game compared to other Picross games I've played).
In short, be careful - you cannot trust the clues given by the game about your progress.
