Picross DS

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: How does Nintendo keep doing it? They continue to innovate, and come up with fresh, new creative ideas. Sure those of us at Family Friendly Gaming can relate to coming up with so many awesome new ideas, but still Nintendo continues to impress me. Picross DS is like a crossword puzzle, but the blocks placed make up pictures. This is such a simple concept that has a lot of life to it. As one of the many non-violent gamers out there, I appreciate video games like this one.

Picross DS game review

Boys' Life magazine
3 May 2009
  • Excerpt: A new collection of puzzles from Nintendo for DS, Picross is a game that you, as well as your mom and math teacher, should love. The puzzles in Picross come in the form of pictures hidden on a grid, and your job is to uncover those pictures one square at a time. Most of Picross takes place on what looks like sheets of graph paper. You see a square made up of columns of smaller squares.
  • Pros: With incredibly fun puzzles and a timer to keep players hopping, this game gets your brain working.
  • Cons: DS sometimes misreads where you point your stylus. Low replay value.

Picross DS Review

GameSpot
18 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Picross, short for picture crossword, is a puzzle not entirely unlike Sudoku, in that it forces you to use logic to deduce the particulars of the puzzle. But rather than focusing solely on numbers, Picross has you using numbers to determine which boxes in a grid get punched out to eventually form a picture or a pattern.
  • Pros: Lots of puzzles to solve, Hectic online action provides a lasting challenge
  • Cons: Zooming in on puzzles can be hard to deal with, Music can get repetitive

The most fun with blocks since Lego

  • Conclusion: This review might seem a tad short for a game with so much content. The fact of the matter is it is very difficult to review a game with nearly no graphical interface, no stirring soundtrack, and no characters to speak of. Picross DS is quite literally you, a grid, some numbers, and the seemingly endless combinations of them. If you have $20 and a DS, Picross DS should be at the top of your shopping list.

Picross Review

VideoGamer.com
24 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Over the last few years, the 'funny pages' at the back of the daily newspapers have seen a major change. The humble crossword has been joined by a whole host of new grid-based puzzles, which have pushed the comic strips and word searches to one side, replacing them with numerous number-based challenges. I am of course talking about the ongoing fashion for Sudoku, the commuter's favourite and spearhead of the new craze for Japanese grid puzzles like Kakuro and Maru-batsu.

Picross DS

Portable Review
21 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Unless you grew up having played Mario’s Picross for the Game Boy, odds are that you don’t know much about this puzzle, but at the same time, odds are that you played it at one point in your life. For people in my generation – remember those books from when you guys were kids, and it had puzzles where you penciled in little squares to form an image out of them? Yeah, so do I. Or for younger people, you ever read Tips & Tricks?

Picross (DS) Review

  • Summary: There are a couple of faults but they’re easily overlooked, if you don’t like logic puzzle games though you won’t like this. It takes time and effort to complete the harder level puzzles but it’s a very worthwhile experience to get there. Easily the best puzzle game on the DS but the lack of flash will probably put people off. Look past that though, and you couldn’t get a better time eating experience.
