Amazing! Just wish I could pay for no ads

I LOVE this game! From the cute little Polaroid printing character to the different areas and worlds. So cute! Some levels are challenging, others are easy! It’s a perfect blend. The naming of the pictures is cute too, and sometimes you can even guess before the silhouette is colored.
I wish there was an easier way to get coins. And I wish that we could pay to get rid of ads. I played this all the way to the end and want more levels!!!

Money-Grabbing Junk

This game has a lot of flaws. The most annoying one is how many ads they feature. I understand ads are the “price” of a free-to-play game, but there is an ad before every puzzle, and the puzzles are so short that I end up watching an ad for every minute of play.

The game’s economy is also pointless and cheap. The coins you earn in the game are used to unlock special puzzles that are no more fun, complex, or interesting than any other puzzle in the game. There is no reward for completing an area by doing all the special puzzles, so what is the point?

It costs 200 coins to unlock a single special puzzle, and each area has three. You get 20 coins for completing a regular puzzle. That means you have to play 30 regular puzzles to completely unlock an area, but you only have enough “film” to compete 10 puzzles at once. Buying coins doesn’t get you anything other than faster access to the “special” puzzles.

There are plenty of other nonagram type puzzle apps out there (many of which, ironically, are advertised in this game) that are more worth the time and potential money you’d be wasting on Quixel.

Thank you very much for your feedback! We're still working on finding the right balance when it comes to ads so our development team will definitely consider your opinion for future improvements of the game.

Perfect starting place

I love puzzle games but was very unfamiliar with nonograms or “picross” style games. I downloaded another one on the App Store but found the tutorial very confusing (granted it had some translation issues) and ultimately passed. Then Quixel attracted me with its visual style, and an opening tutorial and, starting out, simple 5x5 puzzles that helped me grasp the concept perfectly.

This game is charming, fun to look at, fun to play, and if you are new to nonograms like I am, it is an absolutely perfect place to start. Highly recommended.
