Major irritation with the larger puzzle size vs screen size

Summary: The easy puzzles (small size) are too easy...but then you move up to the more challenging puzzles. Yes, challenging they sure are, BUT with the zoom size and the numbers along the sides, return to normal size with the tiny numbers to get the "big picture" in order to figure the puzzle out takes more...
Summary: I've been doing this type of puzzle for at least 14 years so when I heard they were going to have this for the DS, I ordered it. I enjoyed starting it out but was disappointed right away because this is basically a one player game.
Summary: Picross is quite challenging and enjoyable but when you get to level two you have to keep zooming in and out and cant see the whole playing field. I find this very annoying but realise that the tougher puzzles require more squares so what can you do?

Excerpt: I was very excited to get hold of this DS title as I had become quickly addicted to the picross/nonogram/griddlers concept. Having a neat, smudge free method of getting my fix was seemed very attractive to me.
Great fun, but gets a bit frustrating on bigger ones

Summary: I really enjoyed this at the start & even though the pictures revealed are very basic, it was quite addictive. Once I got my head round what to do, I redid some of them to see if I could improve my time. However, after a while I traded it in to get another game.
Summary: I love the idea behind picross and played an online version before purchasing this to see if i would like it. I loved it and so bought the game. To be honest though I was very disappointed in the game.
Summary: I enjoyed this game when it first arrived. A friend had said it was enjoyable and I got a taste for it after playing May's Mysteries. I raced enthusiastically through the easier levels but found the harder ones less relaxing so gave up on the game when Lost Treasures of Alexandria arrived.
